My Review


Okay, the blurb pretty much gives you a good idea of what this story is about. So, I'm just going to tell you my thoughts.

Characters ~ I liked both Jackson and Zennifer (and can I say how much I lurvs that name). They were both easy characters to like and being that they were already in a "relationship", I felt IMO that it was easier to relate to them. Growth of both characters throughout the story was well done.

The Story ~ I felt it was a strong story. You pretty much go through both Jackson's and Zennifer's emotions as they try to figure out where this relationship will go. Once Zennifer is given privy to why Jackson broke up with her and what his sexual preferences are...she of course have always wanted a man to be a little more rough with her sexually, but never voiced those urges. Zennifer comes off a little uptight in the story. Everything must be perfect in her personal and professional life, she is the oldest and feels that it is her responsibility(after the death of her father) to take care of her mother. She is always doing something for someone, so yeah...she did come off as a little bit of a control freak. But her not being able to say no also allowed for folks to take advantage of her (like her co-worker and boss). Jackson broke up with Zennifer because he felt that she would bolt once she found out about his personal lifestyle. He was tired of attempting to convert vanilla women into the bdsm lifestyle so once things got a little serious, he backed off. It didn't matter that he fell for Zennifer the moment he met her...he just couldn't deal with the rejection.

The Plot ~ Zennifer and Jackson are basically forced together when they are both invited to a convention that goes on every year in the field they both work in. Jackson has the Vegas trip to convince Zennifer that she is a submissive and that he loves her despite the break up. Zennifer has the Vegas trip to convince herself and Jackson that they belong together. Of course, you know there will be drama and the secondary characters,  Jackson's and Zennifer's coworkers brought it.  Will it work? Can they both get over old wounds and hurts? hmmmm....

Here's the thing ~ I liked the story as a whole although I would have liked more on Jackson's background. We got a lot of Zennifer, but Jackson? Yeah, I wanted just a tad bit more. I loved that the author didn't make Jackson this overbearing dom. Jackson is a Dominant, but he was a normal man fighting his feelings on how he should handle a current situation with his ex. I loved that she made him vulnerable and a little emotional. I thought that was the most enduring part about him. But don't take my words as him being a punk, Jackson definitely held his own when he needed to. Zennifer I got. I can understand why she was wary of Jackson especially after he broke up with her so suddenly and without any warning. She was a likable heroine although I didn't get the whole thing about how she felt guilty about her father's accident...but heh, it was a good part of the story. A bonus, the sexual scenes between these two (when told) was more IMO of love making than just them "playing" together" during their stay in Vegas and the BDSM scenes where done tastefully as well.

Decent story, well told and written. Excellent character development with a well thought out plot. If you are looking a BDSM romantic tale with a new submissive that isn't afraid to learn and a dominant that is a little emotional than I say check out Ms. Midway's Hot Game, it will be a excellent add to your library. I'll will be checking out more of her work.

Glitch Cover


Liam Gallagher was one of the most notorious hackers in the cyber world. Known for his high profile hacks and superior cleanup skills. Until he got pinched, and hit with a forty-eight month sentence for a crime the feds still can't quite figure out.
Taking Pierce Eaglemohr's offer to work for Hawk Global Industries, in exchange for his hacker skills, was a no-brainer. His only other option was to stay in jail, with the threat of not making it out alive.

There was only one condition. No past, no memories.

With no real friends or family tying him down, he takes the deal and assumes a new identity working as the head of IT for one of the fastest growing corporations in the defense industry.But he wasn't the only one.Part of a trio of ex-cons, Glitch's tasks increased in level of danger and risk until he was just as lethal with a keyboard as he was with a gun. Together, his partners in crime formed a bond so tight that it helped to make up for the family and friends they left behind. The work was easy, the money was good, and they were out of jail so life was good.

When a simple hack job turned wrong ends with him face to face with a tech savvy beauty from his past, he realizes for the first time how much he gave up. And how little Eagle values his work or his life. When Glitch learns that the very man who gave him a new start is the one who is threatening to take it all away, he devises a plan for the trio to retire into obscurity.

Now, he leads the Hitman crew on their task of breaking out of the nasty web of corruption that Eagle has ensnared them in. Things are going to get pretty nasty along the way, even a little sexy, but it's all in a day's work for a Corporate Hitman.






From the driver’s seat, Glitch strained to see what was happening in the rearview mirror while trying to keep his eye on traffic. His tension was growing by the minute, and something about the little exchange between their mark and Scratch had set him off. There was something about that voice, and the fact that he only knew one woman who liked to call men nut sack lickers.

The loud blaring horn of a garbage truck snapped him back to attention as he swerved to keep from crashing with the truck head on.

“Jesus Christ,” Scratch bellowed from the back of the van. “Yo! You need to get a fucking grip,” he continued to bark at Glitch.

“Get her name,” Glitch demanded, ignoring Scratch's outburst.

“You just watch the fucking road and let me do my job,” Scratch retorted.

“Just ask her fucking name!” Glitch was wired from the anxiety and excitement pumping through his veins. His instincts were never wrong, and right now they were telling him exactly who the woman with the stellar computer skills and potty mouth was. He just wanted confirmation.

Scratch and Jack exchanged confused glances at Glitch’s outburst.

“You heard him, Doll. Tell the nice man your name,” Scratch ordered. He would wait until later to deal with whatever was up Glitch’s ass. He glared at the woman expectantly. Waiting for her to curse him again or refuse, but her entire expression changed when she heard Glitch’s voice. As if she’d seen a ghost.

“Hex,” she whispered. Her face now anxious as she chewed her bottom lip.

“What?” Both Scratch and Glitch asked at the same time.

“She said Hex,” Jack added. He was now eyeing her with thinly veiled suspicion.

Glitch felt his blood run cold. He knew it. The way the hacker had mirrored his own program against him. The way they taunted him, only running their rogue program after business hours.  Hex was the only hacker who had ever challenged him like that. She was also the only woman who ever held his interest. Made him feel things that he thought he was immune to.

When he got locked up, there was no way he could contact her without getting her involved in his mess. Any contact would have led the cops straight to her, and Glitch wouldn’t have that. He’d rather man up and take the fall to protect her. But when Eagle brokered his deal to freedom, one of the consequences was to sever all ties to his past. That meant no going back, so he never contacted her again. He felt it was safer that way, for both of them.

Now, here she was. Tied up and terrified as Scratch and Jack looked like they are about to nullify her life expectancy. They had no idea who she was or what she meant to him. But he knew, and a flood of memories assaulted him as if to make sure. The way she laughed at all his corny jokes. The funny faces she would make when she taunted him about his work. The many nights they spent chatting via webcam until her eyes were heavy with sleep. The longing he had for her had never gone away. And now she was here.

“Wait,” Glitch called out. Making a quick right turn, he pulled into the parking lot of a hardware store. The van wouldn’t stick out like a sore thumb here. Cutting the engine, Glitch took a deep breath before handing the keys to an already high-strung Jack, giving him something else to do besides focusing on how he could inflict bodily harm to Hex.

“What the hell are you doing?” Jack’s razor sharp tone sliced through the thick air in the van. Scratch was trying to keep an eye on their mark, but kept glancing between Glitch and Jack as the tension mounted between them.

“Yo, Glitch. What are you doing, man?” Scratch’s voice was wary. He knew that whatever was going on wasn’t part of the plan, and that was never a good thing. Especially coming from Glitch, who was the most sensible and emotionally tempered one out of the three. While all three shared a bond, Scratch and Glitch had grown really tight. He knew something was going on with Glitch, and his friend hadn’t told him.

“Just let me get back there and I’ll explain. Jack, you drive.” Glitch didn’t want to waste any more time bickering with Jack. That would get too ugly.

With a glare that let Glitch know that he better not fuck things up, Jack snatched the keys and they switched places.

Glitch couldn’t believe his eyes. It was really her, and she was more beautiful than he remembered. Her dark curly hair was now restrained into a bun, but the fire dancing in her eyes was still there. Everything about her called to him. The long eyelashes that framed her cat like slits. The deep tan skin. Same sultry voice.

Their eyes connected and he saw the fear shining in hers, but also a glimmer of something else. Something that said maybe he wasn’t the only one harboring their past as a special place in his heart. As much as he hated to admit it, he had feelings for Hex back then, and he still did.

“This better be good,” Scratch mumbled as Glitch took a seat next to him. Glitch just nodded, and turned his full attention to Hex. Breaking their stare-down, he spoke first.

“You want to explain to me what you were doing?” He’d wanted to say something smooth, to let her know that he would make sure she was safe. That he was happy to see her, but he couldn’t with Scratch watching his every move. Since he didn’t know her angle yet, there was no use in making promises.

“I told you I would always find you,” she responds.

Wrong answer. Terrible answer.
