Blog Tour: Review of Strictly Confidential by Lynda Aicher

Author: Lynda Aicher

From Lynda Aicher, author of the bestselling Wicked Play books, comes an exclusive invitation to the Boardroom—where working late has its rewards.

Life is about power—who has it, who doesn’t.
Anyone who says otherwise hasn’t spent time in Kennedy Keller’s business-casual two-point-five-inch heels. A woman in a world very much run by men, Kennedy does whatever it takes to keep her power, in the office and outside of it.

Until she lets her guard down and decides to submit to a man for just one night. He’s everything she doesn’t usually let herself have: sexy, strong…dominant.

Matt Hamilton said goodbye to the Dom life years ago—power games and the delectable push/pull of dominance and submission might start in the bedroom, but it never stays there.

Reunited in the Boardroom, Matt and Kennedy test their desires and boundaries…and learn that one night is never just one night.

Strictly Confidential is the third book in the "Boardroom" series.  I did read the novella that started things out, Done Deal. So I understood the basic premise of "The Boardroom".  Basically, it's private club of people who like to explore their kink side in a safe and private environment.  The name comes from them using boardrooms of the members after hours.  Scenarios are set up ahead of time and rules are set into place.  This book features Kennedy and Matt.  They have a semi anonymous one night stand and days later they end up in The Boardroom by coincidence. They find out their one night stand wasn't enough for them.

This book kind of confused me on a few levels.  I didn't mind the club idea too much because it was all consensual.  If that is your thing , then go for it.  But I was confused by Kennedy and Matt in regards to what they wanted in their relationship.  He was a dom, but didn't want a sub and she liked to give up control but wasn't a sub?  The back and forth of all of that ended up being a bit too confusing.  While I liked them together and as individual characters, the insta-love was too quick for me.  What I loved most about the book was Matt's relationship with his kids and mother.  I loved those moments in the book.

In the end, this was just an OK read for me.  I may pick up the next one. What I really want is to know what is up with Trevor and Dani.  That is the story I want!
