It’s a summer internship.
Never mind that the owners are hot.
Never mind that there are three of them.
Never mind that they are twice her age.
Never mind that they have a secret “play” room in the basement.
Never mind that she’s never been more intrigued in her life.
She only has three months.
No matter how deeply she gets involved,
she can’t stay…
Abby is heading to Harvard Law in the fall, but first she has landed a prime internship in her hobby of photography.
Vanguard Media Specialists is a prestigious firm in Seattle owned by three partners, Levi, Beck and a silent partner Julius. They aren’t only business partners they are Doms and they train submissives. Not this summer though. They’ve decided they need a female perspective in their company and Levi is positive Abby is the one to provide it.
Now they are all attracted to Abby and the feeling is mutual but none of them are making a move. That is until a file is included in Abby’s editing that wasn’t meant for her. A mistake that will change everything.
This is a favorites scene.
When we round the corner and step into the library, Julius is standing by the window. Beck is sitting on one of the sofas. He jumps to his feet as Julius steps forward. “What happened?” His face is drawn together in concern, his gaze darting from Levi to me and back.
Levi runs a hand over the top of his head and blows out a breath. Yeah, he’s nervous. Great. “I fucked up.”
Beck groans, making me wonder how on earth he has suspected what happened?
Julius speaks. “Please tell me you didn’t make a move on Abby.”
That? That’s what they think happened? I take a step back, wishing for the tenth time that I could disappear. This is their thing. Not mine.
Beck jumps in next. “I told you hiring her was a bad idea. I knew you were attracted to her and wouldn’t be able to keep your dick in your pants. Do you not realize we can be sued for sexual harassment?”
What. The. Hell. Is. He. Talking. About?
I start shaking my head. They’re both way off base here.
“Jesus, Levi,” Julius adds, sounding disappointed. He spins around, looking like he would like to punch a hole in the closest wall.
Levi tips his head back and groans at the ceiling before righting himself. “Would you two shut the fuck up? No one made a pass at Abby. I haven’t touched her.”
Well, that’s not entirely true. He did touch my face. Twice. It was kind and I liked it. A bit too much. I can still feel the stroke of his fingers against my skin.
Both men freeze. Their gazes come to me, leaning around Levi. I’m still trying to hide and failing. They search my face, glancing up and down my body at the same time. I feel like they’re stripping me to see if Levi is telling the truth. That doesn’t even make sense.
“Abby?” Julius questions.
“What happened?” Beck asks before I can respond.
Levi answers. Thank God. “I accidentally uploaded Katarina’s last submission file into the Johnson wedding folder.”
Beck stumbles backward. His hand goes to his chest. “Did she… watch it?” His gaze comes to me.
I bite my bottom lip hard, nodding. “Sorry,” I mumble.
“All of it?” his voice raises.
“Enough of it,” Levi responds.
Beck’s face turns red. His skin is so pale that he can’t hide it. His gaze jerks to Levi’s. “Jesus, Levi. She’s too innocent for that. She’s probably never been to a club nor seen any kind of submission before, and she gets introduced to the fetish world by watching her boss dominate a woman on her knees?”
I gasp. My boss? I take another step backward, stumbling. Until this moment, it hasn’t occurred to me that I knew the man in the video. I had a fleeting thought that the voice was familiar, but I didn’t realize it was Beck. I’m going to pass out.
Julius rushes toward me and grabs my biceps as I start to go down. He sets a hand on my lower back, swings to the side, and ushers me toward one of the leather sofas. “What a clusterfuck,” he murmurs under his breath.
“She didn’t know it was you, asshole,” Levi informs Beck.
Beck’s voice rises. “How the hell was I supposed to know that?”
I set my elbows on my knees and try to breathe. I wish they would all be quiet so I can think. I wish they would leave me alone. I need to concentrate.
This isn’t what happens though. Nope. Not even close. Instead, Julius kneels in front of me, and Beck and Levi flank me sitting on both sides. I’m crowded and I’m going to hyperventilate.
Julius’s hand lands on my head, and he guides my face toward the floor. “Give her some space. She’s panicking.”
That’s an understatement.
Ten billion thoughts are going through my head. I don’t even know what the truth is anymore. I try to sort out the facts. My three bosses have a secret studio somewhere in this house where they shoot private videos for kinky people. Got it.

I remembered Claudia from the first book in this series. and Claudia is the perfect person to discuss the basics of BDSM and give Abby a tour of Surrender.
Talk about BDSM 101, the guys are funny too, trying to figure out the best way to start with a total newbie, someone who has never even thought about the lifestyle.
This book is fun, sensual, informative, emotional and sizzling.
I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
