nasty business Reviews
A fun read. The main character Ruby is young and a tiger in business. She engages in a battle with Rick a semiconductor entrepreneur over control of a Malaysian wafer fab. Their competition extends past business into a sexual contest of dominance. While all of this happens Ruby discovers her staid middle-aged secretary has a very kinky side.The ending was a let down, other than that an entertaining novel.
another fun & hot tale from Lisabet Sarai. she's adept at writing novels that run the gamut of m/m/ f/f, f/m. D/s tales with switching aren't to my taste per se, but Sarai does a nice job of making us understand the reasons for the switch. the book is damn steamy though, i must admit. i liked the rapport between Rick & Ruby. i'd like to see Ruby as a character in future novels.
Ruby and Rick want the same factory and they attempt to outmaneuver the other. I was not rooting for either one of them. They played games of one-upmanship to beat the other. They manipulated and hurt others in their quest to get what they wanted. When they finally set up a contest that involved only themselves, it got hot. It was also the first time each admitted to him or herself what they truly wanted. Both want to win, to dominate yet each also wants to submit to the other. The secondary storyline with Ruby's assistant, Margaret, and Rick's housekeeper, Luna, was more fascinating for me. I looked forward to when they would return to the story. I liked them and I liked how they did not play games but Luna went for what she wanted. Margaret learned what she wanted.I enjoyed the telling of the story from the three points of view--Ruby, Rick, and Margaret. I liked how they each saw the same actions but described the effect on them so it was a different tale.A good read of dominance and submission and how it was not easy to realize what one desires.
