Breaking His Rules by RC Matthews
Overview by Publisher:
When I landed the best bartending job in downtown Chicago, the rules were as clear as the Grey Goose martini I mixed for him. Don’t sleep with the patrons. I had no problem with that. Money didn’t impress me. But Damon Baxter’s eyes did. Midnight blue, just like the name of his nightclub. The way they undressed me made me consider risking the most sought after job in the service industry. Nailing the position had been hard. Obeying the rules? Even harder.
Good thing I like it hard. I was never one for following orders. For one night with him, I would have sold my soul to the devil. And that’s exactly what I did. Let me tell you, hell in the company of Damon Baxter was blissfully hot. I offered him a single night of pleasure, but when he demanded another in that deep and sexy whisper, what could I say? He was my boss, and I always aimed to please…when it pleased me.
He didn’t care that I broke his rules. But was I ready to break my own?
This book was really a fun read! IT has been heavily influenced by Fifty Shades of Grey and Crossfire Series, but this is not a negative! There were so many times reading those series that things felt long and drawn out, where this book gets right to the point. It was refreshing!
Samantha is a new bartender at Midnight Blue, the hottest nightclub in Chicago. Her first night in the VIP lounge tempts her to break the rules set down by the control freak owner-don’t screw with the clientele. She almost can’t help herself because the man flirting in front of her is so hot he’s about to give her an orgasm from his blistering stare.
Turns out he is the owner and he’s about to break his own rules with Samantha. One steaming hot night in the club turns into more and more. But this isn’t as simple as the billionaire boss resucing his bartender from a life of drudgery.
Samantha has a complex story. One that takes time to reveal. I liked that she didn’t need Damon, but wanted him. That distinction was key to making the relationship work. While Damon didn’t grow up rich, he certainly lives the lifestyle now and moves in the same circles as Samantha’s former life. There is a lot of depth to the motivations behind Samantha, Damon and the secondary characters and it seeps its way into the relationship.
While this book had some of the flavour of the traditional billionaire romance genre, it had enough curve balls that it became unique and original. It’s very hot and steamy, which was fabulous, but there is also a very good story here too.
