After agonizing months of suppressing her true feelings, it took one passion-filled night for Teresa Bodnar to realize that she was in love with her friend, the deliciously dominant Eric Yun, a revelation that had her running scared.

Is it really Strictly Business or can you have some Kink added into the relationship?

Strictly Business is the second book in the duet and the continuing story of Teresa, Eric and a new mystery man. Teresa is running her Social BDSM club and she is really enjoying it. She is growing confident in her business abilities as people are enjoying what the club is offering.
After one intense night with Eric Teresa finally opens up to her true feelings for him. However, with her past she cannot voice them

Note: I received a free ARC of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review. I only review books if I read them, finish them, and enjoy them.

Tera is a complicated woman. She runs a successful business called The Loft where wild desires come true, she takes care of her own, and she also has a deep (semi-secret) love for Eric Yun. Similarly. Eric is a bit complicated because he really wants to admit his feelings for Tera but... something always stops him. It could be Tera always ru

This is book two in The Loft series. This is not a standalone read, you must read book one, Whip Smart first. This book picks up roughly as book one leaves off. Tera and Eric are continuing down the friendship path when they both want more. One night they cross the line and become lovers, this sends Tera running off. It seems to take awhile but they appear to get back into the friend zone. However, they both have baggage from the past that is keeping them locked in their self made prison when it ...more

I enjoyed this story as much as the first book. I loved Eric. I wanted to shake whiny Tera. She loved Eric BUT she couldn't have him even though he loved her too because they'd be bad for each other! And why was this?? Only Tera knew. She never did say. Eric had to be a saint to still love her. Their tragic pasts came back to haunt them in this book. Eric tried so hard and worked so long to overcome his demons. What now?? Tera's problems were more recent and she had more help than the young Eric ...more

★ “…you think this is me at my worst?” ★

—>>> I have to confess that I did not read Whip Smart first, but I did not feel I needed to catch up with it by the time I was knee-deep into this one. Teresa/Tera has been in love/lust for Eric, a Dom in her club, The Loft. Months ago, she and Eric’s one-time scene had her wishing for much more, but the intensity of her feelings for him made her run. When a series of sinister events occur, coupled with instances in her

This is the 2nd book that I've read written by Siena Noble. This is the second book in the series and it is better to read Whip Smart before this book. Tera is in love with Eric a cyber security analyst and a Sibari Master. This is the story of their relationship and what's going on with the club since its open.There's a lot of drama, some intense BDSM, some really hot scenes and a bit of intrigue thrown in. Tera is frustrating and whiny as ever but the plot caught my attention at the very begin ...more

Wonderful

Simply outstanding.
Tera and Eric are so intoxicating with their electrifying chemistry. I have to say that if you haven’t read Whip Smart, your missing some critical information.
Strictly Business is so hot and if D/s is not for you, then maybe a true Alpha is. Even in this multi-cultural, multi-orgasmal Book. There’s something for everyone.
Second time around for me and this wonderful author. Looking forward to seeing what happens in Tangled Love.

This is the second book in the series, and you have to read book 1 prior to reading this one or you shall be lost as to who everyone is and how they got there. The connection between Tera and Eric continues and gets stronger as the author takes us through this part of the story. The baggage they are both carrying comes back to haunt them in this book which doesn’t help their relationship. There are a lot of emotions and drama going on throughout. It’s a great part 2 and I’m eagerly awaiting part ...more

I'm not sure I liked this book. I was really annoyed half the time. I felt like Tera was just stringing Eric along and was really flighty. He knew about all her trauma and it didn't bother him in the least. But no matter how many times he said it, Tera still wouldn't except it. There was still a lot of repetitivenes and it ended on another cliffhanger. This story could have been split between two books, instead it is getting stretched between three and it's wearing thin.

Frustrating

Tera is still as frustrating as ever. Not only is she still whiney, but times is a whiney b****. Every time I thought FINALLY she and Eric would get together, she freaks, comes up with stupid excuses, and runs. Eric must really love her to put up with everything. This book took longer than normal to read because Tera was constantly getting on my nerves. I hope the last book is better and that Tera finally gets an attitude adjustment

Loved the book it was great the story was well written and the characters were interesting. Tera and Eric are best friends, they had one night of passion and then Tera goes running, after a few months they are back to being good friends. Tera is to scarred to let Eric know she loves him and Eric want say anything in case she runs.
Thank you for allowing me to review this book it was great.

I read books one and two back to back. So I wrote one review for both at same time. I love characters inaction. I love the ending even though it was one continue story. It doesn't feel like a cliffhanger and I am not a fan of cliffhangers. I thought book 2 was very funny. I felt it was believable. I would to read it if you like romance and BDSM.

OMG what a brilliant second book.we learn more about Tera and Eric .Tera still has a lot of baggage and still feels insecure about having a relationship with Eric.There is a lot of hot melting sex and bdsm. .The chemistry between these two is hot.
I don’t want to spoil anymore but I really do recommend reading this book you will need a fan or cold shower to cool down.

Not being in the bdsm lifestyle, I know very little about it. I expected a rerun of 50 shades. Thats not what this is. As the second book of the series, it was a good stand-alone. I haven't read the others, but would be interested. The unfortunate thing is the typos. Giveaway win

I really liked Eric but Tera needs to grow up. Each time you think that she and Eric will finally be together, at last, she finds some reason that it cannot be. Can Tera ever put the past behind her and admit her feelings?

This is book two in the Loft series with Tera and Eric’s relationship. So much “baggage,” insecurities, and angst make it difficult for them trying to reach their HEA. The story was interesting, the characters are engaging, and hot, steamy scenes. Good read.

This is the second book in this series, and it is better to read Whip Smart first.
In this book, you get more answers, and more questions, lol.
It ends with a happy cliff hangerish ending. But book 3 is next!

Some hard moments ahead

Eric and Tera had crossed the friend line and hurried back to hide behind it.
But issues from the past have clouded their judgement on love, and current events might impact their chances for a HEA

The Loft

Whip Smart, Strictly Business were awesome. Seeing two people who really have anxiety and deep depression come together and fall in 💘 is surreal. Eric & Tera know what needs to be done hopefully they will finally get their peace.

Five plus hour read

Good story but five hours of the heroine's "I don't deserve him, I'm not good enough for him." Was a little too much. It got repetitive. Plus she got plain mean and that didn't do well for liking her.
