Shane King, CEO of King Steel was attracted to his sexy new attorney, Avarie Ingram at first glance so he went after her until she was his. Yes, people were not too accepting of Avarie's smarts but protective Shane got them told and FAST!

"Retain Me" was a short novella but my, my, my --- it a really memorable good read!


5 Retain me stars!!!!!!!! *****

Wonderful quick read!! Wished it was a little longer!

It was good but I felt like it was kind of repetitive. For example, it was continuously mentioned how Avarie could hold her own etc and even some of the sex scenes seemed the same to me.

Averie and Shane short circuited my Kindle upon their first time meeting!! No playing coy for either of these two. Their romance was off the charts right along with their business savvy. From the boardroom to the bedroom...and all places in between, this power couple took names and kicked butt!! Love had no color boundaries...well maybe to those who STILL remain ignorant!! Great read and I look forward to reading more in this series.

I love all of your BMWM romance novels. I read lots of them enjoy them and give us a beautiful outlook Interracial relationships. How love has no color. Is Physical and mental attraction , Without judgment on both parts of the families and friends,that will support your relationship. These novels give us as women and men hope to find love without judgment. Love has no color. Love is love and it’s God’s love

Love it!!

A great read, and I enjoyed it tremendously, not too short,not too long, no dragging, straight to the point. Just like Shane, the man knows what he wants and he wants Avarie , the go-getter, powerful lawyer. Together,they make sense, they belong together,they fit!
I was hoping for a little Shane or little Averie, maybe we will have some babies in Trevor's story. 😁
Great 👍

Avarie (lawyer) took over her father’s account with the infamous King brothers company as the top head lawyer. Little did she know that she would also catch the attention of Shane King. She wanted to keep it under wrap. Sometimes you don’t get what you want. Loved the story line, but I had to skip over the sexual content as it was a bit much for me ( yes there was a disclaimer).

An Office Romance

I love a book that has a spirited, independent, take charge heroine and a strong protective confident hero. This was a fun read, a sweet love story that has grit, a little drama, lovable characters, instant connection and a I found my forever love ending.

Shame and Avery felt the attraction as soon as they met. Shane wanted Avery and went after her. Avery wanted Shane too. I love them together.

This was a good read but way too short of a book. Loved the instant attraction between Shane and Avarie.

This is a cute office romance that shows what happens when two alphas clash!! Will there be a book 2?

What is not to love about Peyton Bank's, Retain Me? Previously included as part of the Seductive Temptations box set, this lovely story is now a stand alone book. Retain me centers around the blooming romance between attorney Avarie Ingram and business owner Shane King.

Avarie is a smart and strong woman determined to do her job and do it well. Shane is the sexy, soon to be reformed, playboy. At their first meeting, the attraction sizzles. Avarie tries to resist the attentions of Shane as she is

Retain me was a good book. I love Avery was a woman that was an up and coming attorney under her father. She's like anyone who is following the foot steps of a parent, they just wanna make a name for themselves. The one thing about life though is love can come in at anytime unexpectedly and that's what happened. I wish the story was long and also I love a little angst in books I read. Like I said it's a short read, but I still recommend. Peyton Banks makes great stories and never disappoint.

This was an amazing book with a strong female and a dominant male. When they meet sparks fly with the hot steamy chemistry that looms up. The characters are well developed and engaging with a fun storyline to keep you engaged from page one till the end.

Hot sexy novella! This book although the length of a novella, was able to capture and retain my attention from the start. Attorney client relationship was hot considering both were dominant successful people, but the male client was hot alpha for sure. I would read from this author again for sure. The sex scenes were great too!

This is an office romance and I absolutely loved it. The story is well developed, and Avarie and Shane had a chemistry and passion, that made this story impossible to put down. Loved these two characters together and it was a bonus that they fell in love. I highly recommend you read it for yourself.
