Priscilla Potter is an over stressed, thoughtless, self-centered executive. Oh, she doesn’t mean to be the last two, but Priscilla is used to getting what she wants . . . and what she really wants is release . . . with a capital O! Yet all her pleasure toys continue to break. Despite what her electronic personal assistant, Agnes, thinks, Priscilla does NOT need a man in her life. They tend to mess things up. So she orders a Pleasure Bot . . . so new it’s not even on the market yet. This bot is supposed to be a complete match to her personal profile.

Smuggler, Declan O’Hanlon needs a place to hide. Sure, he knew he shouldn’t have come into another’s territory but . . . business is business. Now his ship and contraband are confiscated and he and his crew are on the run. Declan slips into what he thinks is an empty house only to be “captured” by a cowboy and ordered to strip. The cowboy is really Agnes, an artificial intelligence personal assistant. Agnes is desperate, the Pleasure Bot didn’t arrive, but this new development might just prove to be what the personal assistant ordered. She makes a deal with Declan. He stays for the weekend, having wild sex with the boss and Agnes will release his crew, ship, and cargo. What man would say no?

My favorite Shakespeare play is Taming of the Shrew so I loved Pleasure Bot. This is so much like it yet, so not like it. Priscilla is a shrew, with a screech that’ll make your ears bleed and a thoughtlessness that is unintentional. Declan is a dominant male who sets out to make the best of his situation. He dominates Priscilla, who has always been the dominant partner, and this creates the hottest sex you could imagine! With Declan’s help, Priscilla comes to realize that she doesn’t want to be in charge all the time. Agnes is a fun secondary character, one who has her boss’s best interests in mind. I completely enjoyed this book . . . reading it in one sitting . . . and I think that you will too.
