3.5 stars. Above average for odd and unusual erotic encounters. Some were unsettling. Definitely unpredictable.

REVIEWER’S OPINION:
Read this for the erotic scenes, not for the plot or characters. Although Mr. Stone is an unusual character. I think I’d prefer a different storyline, but for readers wishing for a turn on, this should do it.

STORY BRIEF:
Maria gets a job as a clerical worker at Borough Hall (similar to City Hall). Mr. Stone is Director of Finance (one of top management). He is average

I just loved this book. I had a smile on my face from page one. It was light; sexy; funny; well written and contained a good dose of whimsy. What makes me think the author had her tongue firmly planted in her cheek when writing this?:)
I'm not usually a fan of first person narrative but Maria's telling of this story was so 'entertaining'!!

There's a thin line between romance novels and erotica novels, especially these days. The "spicy" romances can be REALLY spicy. So while this is sold as erotica, I was surprised and impressed by the romance inside. The reader stays with Maria, the heroine, rather than seeing any internal conflict with Mr. Stone, but he lets some emotion out through his eyes or tone of voice, so Maria's narration feels well rounded.

S and M isn't my bag, but this plays out more like light control games than anythi

Gripping office shenanigans by the British Queen of S and M! This first person narrative sucks you in from the first lines. Maria is bored by her new job in a big government building, (I could relate to that,) so when she finds out the sort of sexy goings on that happen behind the scenes, she's more than ready to get involved. Her boss, Mr Stone, is an intense, sexy man, and when she gets tangled up in a hot liaison with him you better be ready to be riveted to the pages! If you enjoy kinky erot ...more

Portia Da Costa's latest alpha male, Robert Stone, is described as "...all roughness. All earth. Beastly and primal" and I loved him. He walks the corridors of Borough Hall with his long dark overcoat flying behind him like a caped crusader. Oh my! Directors of finance at the Council have never been so hot! Da Costa makes working for the Council sexy! (She herself once worked for her local Council) Plus, who knew Council bins could be so erotic? Loved the last scene in the infamous Waverley hote ...more

i enjoyed this book greatly. loved the characters, particulary the protagonist & the tension between her & Mr. Stone. Portia Da Costa is an author who can tell an erotic tale well & with a sense of humour. this is not common in contemporary erotica, in my experience.
Sandi Monypenny
Poorly written - seemed like a string of e very possible sexual scenario strung together by a flimsy story. Have read better books by this author. Erotic tales that lack passion and romance

Black Lace. I've read some by Da Costa I enjoyed very much, others I found quite so-so. So far this one is fits in the better category.
Continued to be one of the better ones.

Realistic characters-they feel like people I might know-drew me right into the story. And the sex is hot!
