Falling Under You by Laurelin Paige…ARC Review

Falling Under You releases tomorrow!FALLING UNDER YOU - cover



Norma Anders has always prided herself on her intelligence and determination. She climbed out of poverty, put herself through school and is now a chief financial advisor at Pierce Industries. She’s certainly a woman who won’t be topped. Not in business anyway.

But she’s pretty sure she’d like to be topped in the bedroom.

Unfortunately most men see independence and ambition in a woman and they run. Even her dominant boss, Hudson Pierce has turned down her advances, leaving her to fear that she will never find the lover she’s longing for.

Then the most unlikely candidate steps up. Boyd, her much-too-young and oh-so-hot assistant surprises her one night with bold suggestions and an authoritative demeanor he’s never shown her in the office.

It’s a bad idea…such a deliciously bad idea…but when Boyd takes the reins and leads her to sensual bliss she’s never known, the headstrong Norma can’t help but fall under his command.

My Review:

Falling Under You is part of author Laurelin Paige’s Fixed Trilogy as well as the newest in the 2016 1,001 Dark Nights line-up and let me just say: this book was SO HOT! Not only was it so hot but it was also so beautifully emotional that I was glued to each page from start to finish.

Being in a long-term, respectful, platonic working relationship, Norma knew Boyd pretty well. So she thought. The thing is, how well can you really know someone when they only show you the side fit for cubicles and interoffice memos? But it shouldn’t matter anyway because no matter what Norma thought of Boyd, he was off-limits.  Not only because as his superior it would be frowned upon but also because company policy forbade it.  But beyond that, Norma thought she had Boyd all figured out.  He wasn’t really her type.  He’s handsome, a stellar assistant, and a true gentleman…and maybe a little too soft for her.  Little did she know, that was only the side he showed her in the workplace.  Outside of the office he is still a gentleman, but also a total dominant in the bedroom, and when she sees that side of him?  She’s a goner.  The situation soon changes from “I could never see myself with Boyd” to “I could never see myself without Boyd”.  What will happen when it comes to being able to keep her relationship and her career?

Wow.  Just wow.  I know Laurelin Paige is a genius when it comes to her couples and their dynamic.  I know she weaves so much heart and heat into a story that captivates with each page.  I know this, yet every time I pick up another one of her books I am blown away anew.  Falling Under You was a prime example of her talent.  I loved Norma and Boyd.  I loved Norma and her tenacity when it comes to her career.  I admire her work ethic and professionalism.  She’s a woman who knows what she wants out of life and goes after it.  I also loved that she was willing to admit she needed what Boyd wanted to give her and that she was willing to give up control for once in her life.  It was so beautiful to see her transition and to see her grow as a person when she lets go for him.  Boyd was a perfect match for her both in the boardroom and bedroom.  He knows how to handle Norma and has such kindness and patience with her.  He’s also damn sexy and when he takes control and it is positively delicious.  The intimate scenes in this novella are scorchingly sexy with an underlying layer of emotion that Ms. Paige delivers so damn well.

Whether you’re an established fan of Ms. Paige or this is your introduction to her work, I know you will love Norma and Boyd as much as I did.  Thank you, Ms. Paige, for this wonderfully sexy and touching story!

About Laurelin Paige:

USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Adam Levine. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.

  1. Prob take a pass on this one.. not a fan of BDSM. Don’t mind sexy time but don’t like being ordered how to behave. Give and take agreed upon is my style.
