Savannah was groomed from birth to take the reins of her father’s manufacturing empire. Her emotional armor is as tough as the steel used in her factories, and nobody is allowed past it. Business partner Matt realizes that the key to entry is to command her submission. Calling on the unique sensual talents of his four-man management team, he engineers an aggressive and ero ...more

Matt and Savannah have worked together for years. She's knows how to flirt, how to use her womanly attributes to catch a man's eye, make him sweat and close multi-million dollar deals. And all the while she's driven Matt crazy. He's tired of waiting and wants her to belong to him, so he sets up a "meeting" and makes his move.

Board Resolution is the first book in Joey W. Hill's Knights of the Boardroom series and it was one sexually intense book! I can safely say this wouldn't be everyone's cupp

Board Resolution is a gorgeous, beautifully written, bundle of erotic loveliness with Matt heading up the sexilicious knights of the boardroom team.

From my first introduction to Matt and Savannah in Hostile Takeover, I've been keen to discover their story. And, of course, I wondered what happened on the famous board room table? Board Resolution is their story and, as with all the stories in this hardcore BDSM series, you need to go in with an open heart and an open mind.

The Knights of the Boardroom.........Matt, John, Lucas, Peter and Ben. I get such wicked and illicit thoughts about these 5 men. There is just something so addicting about them. Before starting this book, I read Book 5, Hostile Takeover first. It was about Ben and it began my love affair with The Knights of the Board Room. All these men play such a vital role in each other's lives that I was able to have a glance at each of them in Ben's book. I the

Wow.. this was one extremely sexy, sensual, erotic story....

The entire book takes place in one room over the course of one night.. and not a single second of it was wasted. Matt, Peter, Ben,Jon and Lucas all have a point to make to Savannah.. that she needs to come out of her shell. Matt is deeply in love with her and she with him, though she would never admit it..

Matt and the guys own the business across the street from Savannah and her business.. they have lots of dealings with each other on

After reading WAAAYYY too many emotional reads lately, I just wanted something I could read, get involved in, not have my emotions wreak havoc on me but not really have to care about it at the same time. Board Resolution was exactly that.

Board Resolution (Knights of the Board Room, #1)Board Resolution by Joey W. Hill

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Well where should I start ….. I finished reading Board Resolution and the wonder that someone could write such a combination of a nebulous teenage wet dream and the fantasies of every inadequate woman hater was overwhelming.

The premise that a woman who was as powerful and masterful in a male dominated world of high finance could be reduced to some trembling and sexually desperate slave was such a stretch for my human mind to begin with that

“Say it again,” she said softly. “Say it so my heart will hear it.” He had stilled within her to give her time to adjust, and he pressed his cheek to hers, his breath in her ear. “You’re mine, Savannah. Now and always.”

This is my first read from Joey Hill and my first foray into more hardcore erotica/BDSM. I went in with my eyes and mind wide open, and I'm glad I did because I would have done the genre a great disservice it had been otherwise.

I think this is a buyer/reader beware book. Personally, this is straight up my alley. I read a couple of reviews from women who are horrified and feel this is a book of rape and degradation (sic?). Well it certain was a book filled with non consensual acts. Oh boy were they hot and steaming. All I could think about was if there really were that many males focused on me for this scene, I'd probably die from overload. I'm not sure where Ms. Hill comes up with these scenes.

I actually thought I knew a fair bit about this book before I started reading....well the main jist of it anyway.... or the part I was most excited about anyway, A career woman gets her groove on with five guys whilst in a boardroom.

And seriously, those few words were enough for me. I mentally raised my hand and screamed ‘Pick me, pick me....oh please for the love of God, PICK ME.’

I really liked this book.
It was my first Joey Hill and immediately had me excited to moved onto her other books.
I love the writing and the layers she attempts to add to her erotic material.

This book was so close to fabulous...
I felt like I was reading an impressionist painting.
The brushstrokes were beautiful, masterful even.
The overall picture was striking.
The subjects were wonderful (loved the boys at that table)

Oh boy what a hot read!....I have not very read many of Joey's books but the more I read the more I like!

There are plenty of great reviews out there so I am not gonna re-hash it but I will mention that Lucas's mouth/tongue is to die for and I really wish I had me one of Jon's toys!

I am looking forward to reading the rest of the guy's stories.

The only reason I didn't like this book because I want MORE Matt and Savannah. But I really liked it anyway. Hostile Takeover is the first Joey W. Hill I read then moved on to book 6 with Janet and Max's story. Those two five star reads for me gave me so much insight into Matt and Savannah, especially Matt.

Ugh! I read this because so many of my GR friends love this series. I was warned that this was not the best in the series, but I was still really disappointed.

My problem? Next to nothing in this story is believable. A 35 year old virgin? Who's first time is with 5 men? Orcastrated by one who claims to be in love with her? And its a full on BDSM scene? Sorry, not buying it.

The only redeeming quality was the flashbacks. They made sense and gave me hope that there was a real loving bond be

OH MY GOD This goes down as one of the best, hottest stories I have ever read. Mercy, I had to stop every few pages to take a cold shower. All I can say is I would kill to have 5 sexy men work together to give me pleasure. The ending was a little cheesy but I didn't care and liked it. I can't wait to read the stories of the other hot knights of the boardroom.

Just did a re-read and still love this story. My fav. of the series.

***5 "Rules Were Made For Breaking" Stars!***

Savannah Tennyson is a control freak. A businesswoman so good at her cutthroat negotiation skills that she's earned the nickname "Savannah Cyborg," she lives by the set of rules instilled in her by her successful father and repeats them like mantras lest she take her hands off the wheel for even one second. Like Cleopatra, she believes she must be queen first and woman second, someone who holds the reins rather than be trampled underfoot by conquerin

Matt and Savannah have been working together for years. There's always been an attraction and underlying sexual tension between them.

Savannah has been raised by a domineering father, who never showed any emotions because he taught Savannah that it was a form of weakness.
She never felt loved by her father. She only lived by his "rules", and he dictated everything in her life to prepare and mold her to inevitably take-over his company.

Matt is a Corporate CEO who really "sees" Savannah. He d

Let me preface with saying....I love Joey Hill.

However, this one just didn't work for me. I feel like a missed a huge portion of the book, mainly the beginning and build-up of the characters. Was there a book or series I should have read before this one? Because I gotta tell you, the flashbacks were nice to learn more about their "relationship" & how their connection came about, but I had a huge problem with her being pleasure by everyone, BUT he main character, Matt!!!

What do you call a tale where a woman shows up for a business meeting only to be assaulted, manhandled, stripped naked, rendered immobile by being bound to a specially designed piece of furniture, blindfolded, gagged and forced to submit to her captor and, possibly, his stalwart management team?

Aw, you guessed it – it’s a love story.

Well, this was a verrrry steamy story. Savannah has been raised by her widowed father almost without emotion to take over his company. Matt has been watching her for years, knows she is his, realises she is submissive but knows that she is closed up behind a steel wall. He decides a boardroom intervention of an erotic nature is the only way to break through her defences and bring her to him.

He calls a Friday evening meeting and what follows is of fairly dubious consent when he restrains her and

Recommends it for: Anyone wanting to experience a well-written erotic BDSM romance.

BOARD RESOLUTION jumps straight from the frying pan into the fire. Once I started reading, there was no stopping. Fabulous! The five men that make up the management team of Kensington & Associates have a professional history with Savannah. I liked that Ms. Hill began each of Savannah's scenes with the minor players (four in all) with a bit of back story. Each of them have their own "specialties", and you'll never look at pearls the same way again. I don't necessarily consider this a BDSM nov
Matthew Kensington and Savannah Tennyson, both CEOs and longtime corporate sparring partners, have faced each other across the boardroom table countless times, each time the room boiling over with their sexual tension. Now, Matt has decided the time has come to claim her as his, and he knows he's in for a fight. She's a no-bullshitter, bitter and ballsy, and he believes she's barely holding on--trapped in a role cultivated from early childhood by her cold, unfeeling, CEO father. Indeed, there we ...more
The first time I read this book last year, I didn't like it very much. I don't know why, it just didn't sit well with me. Now, since I've decided to finally continue with this series, I wanted to meet the knights again, and give this particular knight another chance.

After reading Board Resolution the second time, all I can say is that my previous thoughts about it were only due to bad timing, because this time I really, really liked it.

This short has a surprising amount of character development but still left me wanting to know more about the other guys so on that front it's a great start to a series. Savannah is an independent, driven & lonely woman. It was ingrained in her by her father to be self-reliant & never fully trust another, never let her guard down. Given the fact that she's 35 she's fortified those defenses into a fortress which makes her intimidating to face in a board room. She's known Matt Kensington &a ...more
