The Businessman's Tie (The Power to Please, #1)

The Businessman's Tie (The Power to Please, #1) - Deena Ward Oh my goodness, this book was absolutely fantastic. It may have been short, but it was well worth the read.In The Businessman’s Tie, Nonnie Crawford is a 29 year old recent divorcee who is out one night with her friends at a bar. When she spots a handsome stranger, a little older than her, staring at her from across the room, she starts to wonder if she’s ready to dip her toes back into the dating pool. Her friends convince her to introduce herself, but before she works up the nerve to do that, she heads to the bathroom. What happens next sets her world a-spinning.Nonnie discovers a side of herself she didn’t even know she had. And thoughts of The Businessman, as she calls the handsome stranger from the bar, plague her every waking moment. She decides she needs to see him again.While at the same bar, Nonnie meets Lilly and ends up in the last place she’d ever expect herself to be. And what happens there is like nothing Nonnie has ever seen or experienced before. Now she is torn…Nonnie has a choice to make after meeting up with The Businessman once more. Should she accept his offer, or should she give herself up to Michael, the other handsome man who wants her for five nights, to show her what could be…?This book has made me insanely happy. Not only is it properly written and showcases BDSM in a healthy light, it also uses the phrase “safe, sane, and consensual.” And at one point, another female character that Nonnie meets, Elaine, gives her a list of websites(not in the story) to browse so she can educate herself about what she may be getting herself into.Oh gosh, that just puts a huge smile on my face. As an advocate for educating yourself, doing your research, and knowing that it’s all about being safe, sane, and consensual, I am beyond thrilled with this book.It is sexy, steamy, and just overall a really, really fantastic read. It’s also NOTHING like that Book That Shall Not Be Named, which people are looking to as a manual or guidebook for exploring BDSM. No, no, no. That depicts unhealthy relationships and abuse. Please don’t read that. Read this instead.Anyway, I am definitely looking forward to continuing the series, which includes, as of right now, The Playboy’s Proposition and His Name is Sir.If you’re looking for an indie author who knows her stuff, writes beautifully about BDSM, and leaves you wanting more, then definitely buy yourself a copy of The Businessman’s Tie. I can guarantee you won’t regret it.
