I tried reading this book so many times, I now lost track. It just doesn't work for me at all. Reading this book felt like I being lectured - writing felt cold and very detached.

I really didn't like this. I felt the plot was shallow and it was added to make the sex more accessible. There is better erotica out there.

DNF

You lose me as a reader if I can go through two chapters of your book with no more than three sentences being spoken. Far too much inner dialogue.  

I flipped through the book to see if things picked up and honestly was quite disturbed at what I read. I enjoy plenty of erotic themed books, but this wasn't that. There was no connection between the characters, she was nothing more than a body to him. There was no consent.  He was acting out his fantasy regardless of how she felt.

Nope, not for me.

Julie makes a deal for one weekend to do whatever she is told to do by one of her bosses.   An unusual weekend ensues.  I did not like this book.

The story is not too excited as I expect it to be. After 1/3 of the story, it becomes very dull and boring. The plot is somehow predictable. And I hardly made it till the end.

A steamy erotic romance book that will open your eyes and make you want more from the characters. Too steamy to put down.

What can I say. I finished it to find out the end. Not a fan sorry. But everyone is different. Some of the content I found very confronting.

I just knew I was going to love this book and what a great book it was It pulled me right in and I enjoyed every last page. It is a little intense at times and may not be for everyone but if you like your reads a little bit dark then this will be a perfect read for you.

A very different book about sex. The beginning has Julie Markham having a fantasy, and then the next week at work she goes into the office of Peter Harrison saying that she needs help with a file that she has done the work all wrong. Telling her he will think about helping her, a few days later she goes back to him saying that she will do anything he wants. With a written letter stating that she will really be his slave for the beginning of Friday after work to Monday at 9:00 am Julie has now put herself into a game that she was not expecting. The story then takes you through different forms of what are described as sexual pleasures for some and degrading for others, but Julie signed the paper she also wrote it. This begins as something you as the reader think is innocent and fun, and takes a different turn by the weekend. When she is his slave and must do anything he wants by anyone male or female, and each degradation is a little more than the last. But when you get to the end you find something out that gives you a little smile for Julie and makes you think that Peter really was the one who got played. An interesting story with very graphic scenes so be aware. Good writing though.

This book was really good at parts and disgusting at others. I understand that there are a lot of kinks out there but i don’t think that some of them should be put into books and if they are to be put in i think that they should have it somewhere that it is in the book that way the person reading isn’t disgusted by the time they get to that part in the book. 
Therefore if people are planning to read this book and are curious as to what I’m meaning, this author seems to be obsessed with peeing and “golden showers” i find it DISGUSTING but if its your thing go ahead and read it. I have now read. Of her books and its in both of them, i will NOT be reading anymore of her books as they disgust me.

I received this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
I was sometimes lost in the book. It wasn't always clear when the fantasy was ending. Peter wasn't a nice person sometimes. This is not your typical romance, where the leads will profess their love for each other at the end. Not really a book I enjoyed

I haven't read much erotica and those I have have been short and disappointing.  This one was very different.  There is a story, there are people I could relate to and I was interested, intrigued, all the way through.  I really enjoyed it.

A bondage discipline dominance and submission, bdsm read but seems to be more about degradation power than anything else.

Honestly, I'm not sure what I was expecting. I haven't read many books fro  this genre but there are a few differences between Accidents Will Happen and other novels of this sort, the first being, our main girl Janie didn't like EVERYTHING her male partner did. She absolutely hated being spanked! Like okay, it's relatable that she's not a mindless doll. 
 The actual writing style was great but it felt cheap so to say. Kind of how Janie explained pornos...this novel felt like the manuscript for a porno. That was my biggest disappointment. I mean sure, some people eat that stuff up but this storyline has been used countless times and didn't have much to make it scream, "HEY! Look at me! I'm here!". 
 While Janie is a bit whiny, and Peter a bit of a jerk, their characters played off of each other well. It was enjoyable to see how one affected the other even outside of sexual contents. 
 Would I recommend this? Eh, maybe every onice in a while if the other person was into BDSM that's more...out there. Other than that? Probably not. Nothing against the author. Again, amazing writing style and her work is super detailed so it's definitely more visual than most. It's just not at the top of my list for recs.

I have read a variety of different BDSM books and this book was very different in its style and how the characters were driven.   I had a difficult time following this books it may have just not been for my taste.  This was the first time i read by this author and would tell people to give it a chance it may be for your style it was just not mine. 

The story telling was very detailed and you will be able to understand your settings and characters from the authors perspective

I am providing this unbiased review as part of an ARC from the Author received through Net Galley..

Julie needs Peter’s help to cover up her mistake at work.  Peter will help her but on the condition that she will be his to do with as he pleases for the weekend.  Will she accept?  Fast-paced read with lots of steamy scenes.  Some which may not be for everyone, humiliation and water sports among others.  A good read.

I have read quite a bit of erotica that contains BDSM relationships, and this is the only one that has not included informed consent as an essential part of the process. With that in mind, I could not in good conscious recommend it to anyone.

Office politics get personal when Julie Markham asks Peter Harrison to help her cover-up a mistake. In return Peter can do as he wishes with Julie for the weekend. Plenty ensues that weekend, but the question in the end is whether Peter or Julie got the better deal. A very nice twist at the end makes the reader reassess what the plan actually was and who was playing who.

This is something of a hardcore BDSM. If you are looking for a little spanking followed  by a sweet love ever after, this is not the book for you.. I didn't feel that she Julie the main character was debased or assaulted against her will as she consented to everything and a safe word to stop it but this part could have been easily missed. I liked the ending. Surprises are in store that you don't see coming.  A couple of parts of the book , I didn't care for so I skipped over it.   I can see a lot of people really loving it. I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review and no compensation otherwise.
