Get all of Selena Kitt's Power Play Series - the Complete Collection - in one big book!
Selena Kitt’s *Power Play*—where those uber-hot alpha authority figures take full advantage of their status to strike up all sorts of sexy naughtiness with their subordinates!
Warning: This title contains hot, steamy nobody-writes-it-like-Selena-Kitt sex between alpha authority figures and their subordinates!
Kelsey and the Executive
Kelsey never dreamed her first job out of college would be as a secretary. Oliver Pierce turns out to be a harsh taskmaster, and while her friends wonder how Kelsey got the job with such a thin resume, Kelsey doesn’t have to wonder. It becomes quite clear that her lack of experience is exactly what Oliver Pierce was looking for, and she finds herself utterly seduced, ready to be shaped and molded.
Katie and the Dom
Katie has a secret wish—she wants to be a submissive. Then single, sedate, librarian Katie sees an ad on Craiglist. Her friend, Lori, tells her it’s too dangerous, and she’s right. Her first Dom, Patrick, is woefully inexperienced, but thankfully, Liam interrupts his little brother’s attempts. Liam is a true Dom, and he wants Katie, perhaps even more than she wants him.
Emily and the Priest
Her first year away from home at Catholic college has been a disaster for shy, awkward Emily, falling in with the wrong crowd, just trying to fit in with the other girls. When Father Mark, the campus psychologist, takes her under his wing, she’s more than grateful, and under his tutelage, Emily blossoms into ripe, luscious fruit, just ready to be plucked.
Ivy and the Cop
Ivy’s car has broken down in the middle of the night in the middle of nowhere on the way back from a summer babysitting job, her cell phone neglectfully uncharged, and she’s never been so grateful to see flashing lights in her rearview mirror.
Bailey and the Professor
Bailey’s graduate science classes are much harder than she expected them to be, and strict, young Professor Jacobs, in particular, seems out to get her, finding minute mistakes in her work, making her re-do assignments she’s already meticulously completed. When he forces her to start staying late in the lab, Bailey complains to her roommate that she’s about ready to quit school altogether, but what she doesn’t know is that her stern professor has a carnal lesson he’s waiting to teach her. Bailey is about to discover that she and Professor Jacobs share a great deal of “chemistry” together!
Jodie and the Billionaire
A trip to Vegas for her best friend’s bachelorette party is the perfect break from her high stress job, and it serves to be lucky for Jodie, when handsome millionaire Dorian Cole asks her to roll dice for him at the craps table. Always lucky with dice, Jodie wins him two-hundred-thousand dollars. Grateful, Dorian offers to tip her, but Jodie refuses, ready to go off with her friends to a night on the town. And that’s when Jodie gets a real life indecent proposal—an invitation to be the billionaire’s “date” for the weekend. Looking into the man’s darkly seductive eyes—how could she possibly say no?
Donnie and the Maid
Divorced Donnie hasn’t had it easy since his wife abandoned him for a six-figure income with the richest man in the county, taking their daughter with her. He knows he’s a bit of a daydreamer—a writer, a poet—who just can’t be bothered with real world things like preparing meals or cleaning toilets. When his twelve-year-old daughter complains that Dad’s house is “grody” and tells him, “Mom keeps threatening to call social services,” Donnie breaks down and hires a housekeeper. Sexy little Elena is a godsend, in more ways than one, descending on his house with a feather duster and a skirt so short it takes his breath away. And while Donnie struggles to keep his lust—and his growing feelings—in check, Elena finally makes it clear that he’s more than welcome to service the new maid!
There is no doubt that Selena Kitt is the queen of erotic and taboo stories. I have read and enjoyed a handful of her books, but they are not for everyone. That is what I liked most about this collection. Power Play: The Complete Series has something for everyone. If you like office romance, then try Kelsey and the Executive. If you like second chance romance, then give Ivy and the Cop a try. Or if you'd like to try a little bit of taboo, then you'll want to start with Emily and the Priest. I was quite surprised when I started reading this collection of stories. When I saw it on Netgalley, I was expecting more taboo/erotic. The stories are definitely sexy and erotic, but there is also romance between each of the couples. Whether you are a fan of Selena's work or if you are new and just want to try her writing, then you should pick up this book.
Here are my thoughts on each of the stories...
Kelsey and the Executive - I really liked this story. I loved the secret admirer aspect and the voyeurism element in the story. It is a fun short story that kicks off the collection in the right direction.
Katie and the Dom - Oh my! I loved this story. The image of Liam coming to Katie's rescue and how she teases him at his work... Holy cow!
Emily and the Priest - Unfortunately, I had to skip this one. While I like some taboo, I have to draw the line at Priest/religion stories. Its just not my cup of tea.
Ivy and the Cop - There are two types of rescuing. There is a rescue and there is rescue. If you catch my drift... This was one of my favorites in the collection. I loved the mix of second chance romance with hot sex and a dash of suspense.
Bailey and the Professor - This was actually a really sweet story. I liked the connection between Bailey and Dom as they helped Sunny. It was obvious that he cared for Bailey and wanted to help her realize her potential. And of course, they were hot together.
Jodie and the Billionaire - This one was my favorite of the collection. I'm surprised the sparks between Dorian and Jodie didn't set the place on fire. I would love to read a full length book based on this two characters. That would be amazing.
Donnie and the Maid - This was another second chance romance. Donnie and Elena knew each other in high school. It was interesting to see Donnie being introduced into the world of BDSM. That's not something you find often in BDSM stories. It is usually the other way around. It was almost as if Elena knew he needed this to bring him out of his shell after his divorce.
So, that's it. Like I said, if you want to try one of Selena Kitt's books, Power Play: The Complete Series has an excellent selection of seven short novellas that give you a brief look into her writing.
