Tristan Weaver, accountant for a successful video game company, is in way over her head. Honestly answering a company-wide survey and criticizing the sexist stereotypes used in the company’s games was enough to catch her boss’ attention.

More like a 3.5 stars.

I enjoyed this audiobook more than I expected. The narrator, Tatiana Sokolov, did an impressive job with this office romance. It was light and fluffy with a very surface emphasis on BDSM. The story flowed very well and entertained from beginning to the end.

Rory Brecken, CEO of a videon gaming company named Brecken Games, sent out an office survey in hopes of improving employee relations as well as find out new ways to improve the video games he offers. When he overhears his

I give the overall plot 3 stars, since it was fairly simple and didn't go far. But, the smut was a 5! There were some great scenes and the narrator did a pretty good job of reading. I would have liked a male to do Rory's parts, but still good. The back plot of this was Rory's videogame company trying to make a more inclusive game that caters to people other then straight males. I did like that idea, there just wasn't much development of that. Rory and Tristan had good chemistry and I did like se ...more

Tristan Weaver is an accountant for a popular video game company. She's not one to mince words, so when the company satisfaction survey rolls around, she tells it like it is. That she thinks the females in the video games they make have unrealistic characteristics. You know the types if you're played a game that had a female character, they all wear skimpy clothing and have ginormous breasts. I'm going to guess it's like the romance genre and large dicks *coughs* When the owner of the company re ...more

Now, I’m not willing to say that I’m a big fan of romantic erotica YET. My failures are still too fresh in my mind. But this book served as a good reminder of why a reader should never close themselves off from an entire category of books based on a few bad choices.

First of all, I’m a fan of Bronwyn Green. I read Rewritten, and thought it was brilliant. Drawn That Way is a little different than Rewritten, in that it is less of a category hopper—meaning, I would say this one can be classified mor

Short, Sweet, and a dash of Kink

I love how Tristan and Rory's story unfolds you get the full picture of two people who start out thinking a short fling is what they're interested in to maybe there's something deeper than mutual lust. This was an enjoyable read for a slow afternoon!

Tristian and Rory, they drove me insane (in a good way). The battles between each other was hot. The battles within themselves was frustrating. Unsure of where they were going, or if the other wanted the same path, they learned a lot about themselves and each other.

I listened to the audio version of this book and enjoyed it. The storyline and narration were great. This was a new author to me, but I will definitely check out the other books.

A sexy nerd and hot accountant!! This book had so much heat!!

Tristan and Rory embark on a new project at work and the late nights lead to all. the. heat!! These two had so much chemistry. I finished this audio in about a day and half because I just couldn't stop listening.

Tristan is such a strong woman. I loved how she stood her ground and her sassy nature. Rory is a hot nerd who knows everything he wants. They have so much chemistry and I was drawn into their story from the very beginning!

When I discovered that the authors of one of my favorite series, Bound by Jessica Jarman and Bronwyn Green, published the first two books in audiobook format, I think I squealed out loud for a bit. Would I like the opportunity to review them? Hell yes!

Before I get into the audio/narration part of the review, I want to state that I strongly enjoyed both books the first time around. Much of what I wrote in my original reviews of both London Bound and Drawn That Way still holds true, and I’ll summa

Tristan Weaver, originally from U.K. is in the U.S. to make her own way in the world and enjoys her job as the accountant for Brecken Games. But when her boss, Rory Brecken, overhears Tristan and a coworker gossiping about Rory’s kinky sex life, she thinks her job may be over.

Rory admits he enjoys sex and isn’t looking for a relationship, so when he is tempted both intellectually and physically by Tristan, he decides to break his own rule of never sleeping with his employees. Yet after one nigh

I have to admit I bought this book to read because I was so fascinated by the cover art. One of the more unique ones I've seen, the guy with the glasses totally hooked me. Just adored how he looked and couldn't get him out of my mind.

I'm happy to say the hero as written lived up the cover art. Finally! I really enjoyed this book.

The book is a straight up erotic romance with very mild bondage. Not a Dom/Sub book at all, nothing very heavy, all the sex is very straightforward, despite what they mi

I couldn't read this one fast enough! OMG it kept me glued to it until I finished. This is my first Bronwyn Green book and this chick can write!

This was an office romance with a wicked twist. I wish the characters had talked to each other more...but at least we didn't have a global chase and a bunch of typical drama. There's a HEA...although I wondered if there'd be a plot twist involving a betraying staffer and a certain camera. (I'm relieved every time the worst case scenario doesn't pan out,

Dominant Geek? That may sound like it should be an oxymoron but Bronwyn Green shows you that it can exist, at least in a book and my fantasies.

Nerdy gaming CEO Rory Brecken has a no sex with the employees rule. Yet when Tristan Weaver, his accountant, submissive side is revealed temptation proves to be too much. Though both agree to a one night only rule, one night turns into a full on “friends with benefits”. Both start off the liaison professing not to want a relationship. Yet with each encou

Tristan is an accountant at a game software company and her employee survey catches the attention of the boss. Secretly intrigued by office gossip of his kinks, she accepts his offer to implement some changes within the game. Working so closely with the sexy geek only leads to confirmation of the secrets she’s heard. They agree to a no-strings-attached, one-time tryst but will that be enough for either of them?

This is my first BDSM novel and I think it’s a great start, the elements are accurate

This book! Omg, this book!

Ms. Green has a way with characters and writing naughty, kinky sex that appeals in the best of ways. Add in some video game aspects, geekery at it's finest. I couldn't put this one down. It was definitely an up-all-night read and I highly encourage. It's not a full-length, but not so short to leave you wishing for more. A satisfying read with a delicious ending.

The pacing is spot on, the setting realistic, and the characters... in the end, I love a well-written charac

From the start this book sparked my interest. I love stories with a strong female lead, one that is not afraid to speak her mind and take a chance. This is Tristan. Rory holds all the qualities I like in hot, alpha male and the little extra side of geek with his kink had me hooked. Bronwyn Green created a magical, believable BDSM story that had me laughing, sighing and wanting more with every page. Tris and Rory were steamy hot. Their connection sizzled on page and he definitely pushed her to di ...more

I loved this book. Rory is definitely one of my all-time favorite heroes. He's smart, sexy and has that hint of geeky charm that isn't often brought to life in characters. But wow, does he come alive. And Tristan is completely adorable, with her British sass and high level of intelligence. I loved the interaction between these two. While Rory is the dominant in their sexual relationship, I enjoyed how he wasn't intimidated by Tristan's skills. Allowing her to shine in her own right. And how he a ...more

I'm surprised by how much I enjoyed this title. I like that this is a team effort series between two authors. The stories, so far, can be read as standalone. The narrator is the same and her performance is outstanding. I would pick up a new to me author if she is the narrator as her performance truly breathes life into the story. However, the linking element of bondage between the titles keeps them connected. I enjoyed Tristan and Rory's journey. It was an interesting twist on the workplace roma ...more

Someone asked if I thought weather Rory was "Alpha" enough and I have to say YES. He's not an "alpha-hole" and that makes me love him even more. He cares about Tristan and treats her with respect, but he also shows complete control in the bedroom - as a proper Dom should. Love, love, love that man. The one thing I wish was for more of a reason for them to be apart. Not wanting a relationship just wasn't enough for me and it seemed as though it was repeated several times and got redundant after a ...more

Full disclosure, I was a beta reader for this book before it was published. My plan was to read about a chapter a day due to my schedule. That went right out the window the moment I started reading. I inhaled the entire thing in two days. Drawn That Way is hands down my favorite erotica book I've read this year. I had all the feels, thanks to the wonderful talent of Bronwyn Green. I adored the characters, I loved the plot line, and the writing was spectacular. And did I mention it's hot? Like ho ...more

when words come back to bite you in the rear do take it in stride? well that's exactly what happen to Tristan , she works for a popular video game company and when she voiced her opinion about how unrealistic the female characters looked she got hired to model for the company. Rory is intrigued by Tristan and while working together realize their attraction for each other and decide on a friend's with benefits type relationship

Drawn That Way combines so many of my favorite things - a well-written BDSM romance that places high value on consent from both parties, office romance, a slightly geeky hero who also manages to be all kinds of hot (SWOON), a heroine I could relate with, and steamy love scenes, including a jaunty into role-play. Ms. Green crafts the story in such a way I couldn't put it down. The pace was perfect and kept me turning pages as quickly as I could because I had to know where Rory and Tris ended up. ...more
