She’s desperate for the one man she must avoid at all costs…
Wealth manager Brigit Farnay despises Colton Mitus. And with good reason. He ripped away her family’s company during the most painful time in her life. Forced to work with him, she can’t deny that Colton is gorgeous, brilliant, commanding. And the enemy. Her traitorous body craves his touch every moment of every day. And then she finds out about the erotic games he plays…
Corporate raider Colton Mitus is success and power personified. He demands control in the boardroom and in the bedroom. So he shouldn’t be tempted by the newest member of the Mitus team. But he is. Brigit challenges him and frustrates him, but also quiets the demons that haunt him, especially as she agrees to be drawn into his secret, sinful world.
The most lucrative deal of Colton’s career places Brigit’s family’s company in jeopardy. When old enemies return hell-bent on ruining him, Brigit is the only person who can save him. But she’s been keeping secrets that could destroy everything…
I think my biggest complaint with this book was that it was described as an erotic romance. According to the Romance Writers of American, an erotic romance is a novel “in which strong, often explicit, sexual interaction is an inherent part of the love story, character growth and relationship development and could not be removed without damaging the storyline.” And therein lies the biggest issue – the author could have done away with the “kink” and still had a good book since it didn’t really drive the story or the relationship between the two main characters. It drove some of the conflict, but it really played a back seat to the rest of the storyline. I think not describing it as an erotic romance (but not BDSM) would help manage my expectations as a reader.
The Mitus Touch was an engaging story and I think if the author had picked one major conflict to focus on, the storyline could have been a little tighter. But all the conflict seemed to draw out for a lot of the book and them BAM! coalesce all together very quickly.
The chemistry between Colton and Brigit was very well done. The employer/employee taboo helped drive up the tension between the two lovers – the ‘forbidden’ aspect of their relationship, as it were. As I said previously, the ‘kink’ could have been taken out and the book would have been better for it. I mean really…who makes their employees watch a sex show? And who works for someone who makes you watch a sex show as a condition of your employment? That was just weird.
Okay. Either way, I liked the book overall. I’d be interested in reading more books by this author. I hope in the future she focuses more on the relationship conflict between the characters rather than the kinkiness of the sex.
It’s available on Kindle Unlimited, so you’re a subscriber I’d definitely recommend checking it out.
