Holy smoking bedsheets! Ms. Holly can always be trusted for a steamy erotic romance when she writes a ménage. In this latest ménage, the reader is treated to an exhibitionist and voyeur's delight. Mia Beck and her co-worker Jake are going undercover to spy on Damien Call. Why? Because he's being accused of corporate espionage. To capture Damien's attention and get close to him, they audition through a little sex show.

For those who are tired of billionaire stories, this is one not to be missed. Sure, having money at a young age, being super smart and looking like Adonis is a fantasy. It's a fantasy that Ms. Holly makes a reader wish it would come true. The characters in this story come alive. Mia is adorable. It's easy to see why men fall for her. Her innocence and straightforward manner is alluring. Jake is a sexy and dangerous man. The fact that he is heteroflexible and good with bondage and dominance just makes a submissive swoon. Damien is the enigma. What is his game? Why is he the way he is?

The BDSM in here is fabulous. Ms. Holly does a fantastic job of showing the allure of BDSM. The scenes are designed to drive a voyeur into ecstasy. The deferred gratification is especially appealing since it's something I practice. The roleplaying part is very well done. It also shows how someone in the lifestyle can take a simple concept and make it erotic. Jake saw Mia's romance novels. He came up with a way to roleplay and incorporate Damien in an absolutely smoking hawt scene. The best part of that scene? No need for fancy equipment; it's all mind power. Jake brings Damien and Mia into the erotic scene by appealing to their fantasies. He turns them on with just a few words and setting the right mood. This is truly inspiring. Ms. Holly can make a panty moisten in seconds.

The plot of the story is surprisingly strong. It's not neglected nor fluffed up as window dressing for the delicious BDSM. It's a nice balance which gives the story more depth. There is one little thread left hanging which I wish would be tidied up. I'm guessing it won't be because the books in this series seems to be standalones with a theme instead of a continuation of characters. Still, my hope is that Damien's family situation is resolved and I wish for vengeance. Damien is the one I felt most sorry for in this story. He really is poor little rich boy.

This book is a completely enjoyable read as one would expect from Ms. Holly. She's an amazing storyteller and her forte is her kinky erotic novels. Recommended to ménage lovers who enjoy bondage and dominance.

As one of the first erotic romance authors I ever read, Emma Holly quickly solidified her place in my favorite authors folder with her crazy hot sex scenes and fab writing style.

Lowly PI secretary Mia Beck is stunned when her boss asks her to take the lead on an insanely important case. Well, more accurately, he's asked her to play the honeytrap role to trap Damien Call, the CEO billionaire of Worldwide, who is accused of stealing another company's designs. Mia is thrilled to be working with the sexy PI Jake Reed, who is to take her to an exclusive BDSM club where she'll try to entice the elusive Damien, as the man REALLY likes to watch! Entice she does, and Damien takes notice of Mia and Jake's on-stage performance, quickly making the pair an offer they can't refuse. The heat quickly escalates between the three of them, but can Jake and Mia make Damien let go of his hard-earned control?

BECK AND CALL is the 2nd book in the Billionaires Series by the always sexy Emma Holly, and DAMN does she deliver! I'm a huge fan of Ms. Holly's writing, having devoured her non-fantasy books like a kid in a candy store. I can say with certainty that she is one of the few authors that has the ability to make a jaded eroticaholic like me squirm, her sex scenes are really just that good. I loved the feel of BECK AND CALL, it had an almost film noir feel about it with the sexy Private Dicks and men in suits. Mia, while unaccustomed to men's advances and clueless to her own attractiveness, makes a damn good PI with the way her photographic memory works.

And seriously, how hot were Jake and Damien?!? If you've read any of my reviews, you know I have an unabashed obsession with MMF storylines, and the guy-on-guy action in BECK AND CALL was sooooooo hot. The men gelled so well, and the power exchanges between all three of them were the icing on the uber erotic cake. The sex...dear Xenu the sex. When Damien STOPS watching and allows himself to be seduced by Jake and Mia? Ho-LEE shit, that's good stuff! I hope Ms. Holly gives us a new Billionaire book soon!

Bottom Line: 5 burning down the house stars for this deliciously dirty detective story!
