Geeky meets kinky in this second too-hot-to-handle novel in the Slices of Pi series by RITA-nominated author Elia Winters, which follows the erotic adventures of the employees at PI Games, a gaming company based out of sultry Florida.
Iris Parker never planned on ending up in HR because, let’s face it: HR isn’t the most glamorous position in the world. She took a comfortable job and always planned on leaving when something better came along, but before she knows it, she’s thirty and the HR director for PI Games. Even though she likes her coworkers, there’s no excitement in the job for her, and Iris is worried that she’ll lose her spark. Luckily, Iris’s romantic life provides some thrills—living the confirmed bachelor life, when she wants her bed warm, she can find company, and in her sights at the moment is the cute pastry chef at her favorite bakery.
Owen Hobbs has noticed the gorgeous businesswoman making eyes at him when she comes in for coffee and sweets, but he’s not the type of guy who dates much anymore. Unfortunately for him, it didn’t take long in his sporadic dating history to learn that most women aren’t interested in taking charge in bed, which is what he really craves. Working early mornings at the bakery keeps him from the nightlife where he might meet someone who can fulfill his needs, so he’s resigned himself to fantasies and pretty much given up on the dating scene altogether. But when Iris’s advances become too much to resist, Owen finds himself revealing his desire to be sexually dominated...the only question is, is she the right woman for the job?
Tied Score by Elia Winters was a deliciously and wonderful surprise read! This book had an amazing story and awesome characters. The storyline was different and unexpected. I totally dug it! I devoured this book in less than a day. I regret nothing! There was also sexy time! Some really hot sexy time *fans self*
Iris was my favorite character. She is a successful, strong, and beautiful woman. She also struggles with her own doubts and fears. That made her relatable and I really liked that. Owen is serious and a total control freak when it comes to his bakery. I liked seeing a different side to him. It was refreshing. Not every male has to be obnoxious and beating on his chest like a gorilla. Ha!
This is the second book in the series and by far my favorite! I can’t wait for the next book. I give this 5 stars. – Reviewed by Laura
