Publisher's Summary

For Sophie Scaife and her husband, billionaire Neil Elwood, coupling the domesticity of marriage and their steamy games of dominance and submission comes naturally. Rekindling their sinfully kinky affair with an old flame makes their passion burn hotter than ever, and Neil's lust for Sophie is matched only by his drive in undertaking an ambitious new philanthropic venture. But in the wake of Neil's greatest triumph comes a staggering life change that neither of them is prepared for. 

Overnight, Sophie finds herself in a new reality, wholly unlike the life she'd planned. As emotions run high, Sophie struggles to reconcile the husband she cherishes with a man she no longer knows, a man she loves too much to let go without a fight. 

Contains mature themes.

Where to begin...

This one is intense. I almost wanted The Ex to be the last book while listening to parts of this one, but then I thought we wouldn't have Abigail's full perspective of the characters.

I love this series, it is by far one of the best series in this genre. It is well written and even believable. This last installment is very "real". I don't want to spoil anything but be ready for many many many tears and heart ache. There are a few hot scenes but not many. This is a book of real life, even though they are billionaires it doesn't mean they can escape from real life tragedies that many people go through everyday.

I do hope there is another book in the future. I love Neil and Sophie and I love how CJ Bloom narrates or should we say acts out the book.

I don't think I'll be able to listen to this book again in a long time, it is so heavy and hits close to home in some ways. But I am glad that I listened. It would have been easier to listen to if the ending was a little longer. I feel like I am having a "sub drop" now that it is over! I need comforting and time to come down from my adrenaline and emotions! ;)

That you Abigail Barnett, your books are very captivating and I love them. All I ask is that you think about writing another one about Neil and Sophie that is more good points in the future life the way it is now but before Neil passes on as we all know he will most likely pass before Sophie due to their age difference.

Depressing

This has to be the least sexy, most depressing romance novel ever. Romance/erotica should be dramatic, sure. This installment in Abigail Barnette’s Boss Series overshot dramatic and hit hopeless and morbid. It wasn’t badly written per se; it just wasn’t what I look for in a romance novel.

What a Rollercoaster!

This book is sooo worth it! Read the whole series to get the full impact, but my gosh! I've never experience a book with so much depth of characters. The story from book one to five, had me laughing crying, shocked, happy, fulfilled, relieved and loved. It took me through every range of emotion you could think of. I really loved it. As much as I hate books written in series sometimes because the story starts to drag, I wish this series didn't have to end. Loved it times infinity. My only complaint is the way Sophie lost herself during "play" and degraded herself way too much in the name of pleasure and pleasing her man. But hey, it worked for them. Overall , great storyline. Narration with all those voices. ..excellent! I found a new author to follow now. Sad to say goodbye to my new virtual family.

Oh Holy Baby

This book was so emotional. I cried and was full of joy. Sophie was so much stronger than she gave herself credit for. Such a great book. Thank you.

Very Intense

This book does a good job at expressing the many complexities of human emotion as well as sexuality. However, I will warn you this is a heavy book to get through.

The best of the series!

Real life issues and problems. Marriage tests and turns. And some joyful moments. Sofiie swears she isn’t a mother, but become more a mother to Olivia everyday. This was a good balance of life and love.
