Blurb (from Goodreads):New job, new boss, and he’s cold, strict, but terribly attractive. Does Molly Parker stay or does she go? Because beneath Cyrian’s chilly front, there may be a heat that’ll burn her up.
Giving in was vicious bliss.
The live-in position is an opportunity for Molly to earn and escape a problematic family. There’s just one drawback. Her employer is the most eccentric, aloof and closed off man she's ever encountered. His rules are bizarre and his needs even more so, and caring for his ramshackle Dickensian home is far more than she ever bargained for. Only their increasingly intense conversations stop her heading for the door. Cyrian Harcroft is a man of many mysteries and secrets, and the more she learns the greedier she is for each and every one. Especially when she discovers his greatest fear: any kind of physical contact. Now all she has to do is dig a little deeper, to unearth the passion she knows he can feel…
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

“I am horrible. I told you clearly when I hired you – I am cruel and hateful and ill-tempered, and if you find any of that objectionable then you should leave now.”
This was a bit of a strange story, about a sex-starved girl, and a very odd man.
Molly was a bit of a strange girl. Why she talked this bloke into giving her a job, when he really didn’t want to employ her I don’t know, and the way he read her dirty stories was very strange.
The storyline in this was basically Molly talking Cyrian into giving her this housekeepers job, and then her getting all turned on when he read her dirty stories. He was then shocked when she started masturbating in front of him, and he then felt the need to punish her. This relationship was a bit odd though, Cyrian was one heck of a weird character, and why Molly even wanted to have sex with him I don’t know.
6 out of 10.
