He’s nobody’s bitch. Until he gets a ride on the bitch seat.
Forced to apply for a job he doesn’t want, Cosmo Rawlins has only one aim in mind: fail the interview and get back to making music. Except his attempt to shock the older, sharp-suited Alasdair Grant doesn’t have the desired effect.
Instead of getting thrown out of the office by flaunting an interest in BDSM, Cosmo finds himself on his knees, apologizing to the sexy, good-looking Top.
Alasdair has more important things on his mind than training a novice sub, especially a rebellious bad boy like Cosmo. But there’s something beneath the younger man’s defiant attitude that’s too intriguing to ignore.
As Alasdair takes Cosmo in hand—and for a wild ride on his Harley—he becomes obsessed with bending the young rocker to his will, both in and out of bed. Until he goes one demand too far, and Cosmo is gone in a cloud of dust. Forcing Alasdair to admit that earning Cosmo’s loyalty—and love—will involve the toughest challenge he’s ever faced.
This title contains an overbearing Top with a less-than-glamorous job, a rebellious brat who refuses to call him sir, and a total lack of high-end BDSM clubs or playrooms. Expect floggings over the kitchen table instead.
Screwing the System by Josephine Myles was a conundrum of sticking it to the government system and the man who ran a system.
Cosmo was all about using government services to his benefit by lying and putting forth little work- wanting something for nothing. Alasdair ran his own cleaning company and upon interviewing Cosmo realized the man truly didn’t want a job, but definitely needed discipline in his life.
Through ups and downs the two men begin to forge a relationship based on sex and mutual gratification. I found the attitudes of both men interesting and Ms. Myles wrote with clarity of thinking from both their POV, allowing the reader to understand their train of thoughts and their feelings on the task at hand.
I must say that I never connected with either man and although Ms. Myles’ writing was well done, I had to reread a few passages to understand what I would perceive as, and I quote from the author’s synopsis, “Written in Jo’s usual exceedingly “English” English.”
Aside from this reader’s own short comings, the book was worth the read- light on BDSM but heavy on sexual satisfaction.
