Strictly Business is the second book in the duet and the continuing story of Teresa, Eric and a new mystery man. Teresa is running her Social BDSM club and she is really enjoying it. She is growing confident in her business abilities as people are enjoying what the club is offering. After one intense night with Eric Teresa finally opens up to her true feelings for him. However, with her past she cannot voice them and instead keeps them in the dreaded "friend" zone instead. However, Eric has some drama himself to deal with in the form of his ex-girlfriend. It seems she wants him back and is trying to do this quite intently. Eric is also patiently waiting for Teresa to finally come to him as he loves her but cannot push her into a relationship. Enter a new man into the drama of Teresa and Eric and the club. An offer is presented to Teresa by another gentleman for both the club and herself, a package deal so to say. Will Teresa accept the deal with the mysterious man or will she finally admit her feelings for Eric? Strictly Business is a really good continuation of the story of Teresa and Eric. This book picks up nicely from the ending of Whip Smart and the story moves forward with more speed than the first book, which is nice. Siena's writing style and story development are again interesting and good. Whip Smart and Strictly Business are a very enjoyable and interesting reading experience. I received a free ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. My opinions are all my own.

    Note: I received a free ARC of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review. I only review books if I read them, finish them, and enjoy them. Tera is a complicated woman. She runs a successful business called The Loft where wild desires come true, she takes care of her own, and she also has a deep (semi-secret) love for Eric Yun. Similarly.

Similarly. Eric is a bit complicated because he really wants to admit his feelings for Tera but... something always stops him. It could be Tera always running away in fear, whining, etc., but it could be that he's just not ready to advance beyond friendship. Flash forward to an evening when Tera is attacked by a would-be-rapist mugger (no rape here, but may be triggering for some nonetheless) -- Eric is the only person that can really bring Tera comfort. Eric attempts to keep things platonic but soon the two have curled up into bed with one another. Grab yourself a glass of wine and sit back and enjoy the steamy, steamy lovemaking between these two. Phew. This book is a page-turner because once the action begins you do not want to put this book down. As a sub-plot, Tera's business burns down and this super annoying Dom that keeps trying to buy time with her propositions her again, offering her money to fix up the business with several strings attached. Honestly, this sub-plot was silly to me, unnecessary, and did I mention bothersome in so many ways? The guy in question is sexually harassing people, threatening them, (I am surprised he didn't burn the club down, honestly), and I'm not sure why this sub-plot was needed -- and its conclusion does not work for me. Loved everything else.

    This is book two in The Loft series. This is not a standalone read, you must read book one, Whip Smart first. This book picks up roughly as book one leaves off. Tera and Eric are continuing down the friendship path when they both want more. One night they cross the line and become lovers, this sends Tera running off. It seems to take awhile but they appear to get back into the friend zone.

    I enjoyed this story as much as the first book. I loved Eric. I wanted to shake whiny Tera. She loved Eric BUT she couldn't have him even though he loved her too because they'd be bad for each other! And why was this?? Only Tera knew. She never did say. Eric had to be a saint to still love her. Their tragic pasts came back to haunt them in this book. Eric tried so hard and worked so long to overcome his demons. What now??

Good first read from this author!

    I'm not sure I liked this book. I was really annoyed half the time. I felt like Tera was just stringing Eric along and was really flighty. He knew about all her trauma and it didn't bother him in the least. But no matter how many times he said it, Tera still wouldn't except it. There was still a lot of repetitivenes and it ended on another cliffhanger. This story could have been split between two books, instead it is getting stretched between three and it's wearing thin.

    Frustrating Tera is still as frustrating as ever. Not only is she still whiney, but times is a whiney b****. Every time I thought FINALLY she and Eric would get together, she freaks, comes up with stupid excuses, and runs. Eric must really love her to put up with everything. This book took longer than normal to read because Tera was constantly getting on my nerves. I hope the last book is better and that Tera finally gets an attitude adjustment

    Loved the book it was great the story was well written and the characters were interesting. Tera and Eric are best friends, they had one night of passion and then Tera goes running, after a few months they are back to being good friends. Tera is to scarred to let Eric know she loves him and Eric want say anything in case she runs. Thank you for allowing me to review this book it was great.

    OMG what a brilliant second book.we learn more about Tera and Eric .Tera still has a lot of baggage and still feels insecure about having a relationship with Eric.There is a lot of hot melting sex and bdsm. .The chemistry between these two is hot.
