    I have spent weeks trying to find words worthy of how I feel about this book. I loved the characters, LOVED them, I loved the writing, I FELT it. I loved Kate Elliott and all of her strong, badass, independent ways. I was empowering to read about her and her accomplishments. The dynamic between her and Nicholas Bryant was such an interesting one. She was attracted to him instantly.(duh!)

The dynamic between her and Nicholas Bryant was such an interesting one. She was attracted to him instantly.(duh!) And I actually found it fascinating how she almost immediately let her guard down around him. Nick held a power over her and she wasn't sure how she felt about that. They had to find a balance...determining how much of their selves to let go and surrender, all the while holding their ground and holding tight to their boundaries. But will those boundaries... those walls stand in the way of TRUE LOVE??? AHHH! My heart & head were at war this whole book. Not even knowing what to hope for, except for LOVE to WIN! Oh, did I mention that this book is SEXY AS FUCK??? Love scenes were, inspiring to say the least. :) Nick and Kate have such a strong undeniable chemistry, that just their daily conversation is hot. I'd get wet listening to them discuss what deductions to claim on their taxes. Just saying.

    What can I say? I have a love for strong female characters, especially those who most would not like because they don't take crap from anyone and know what they want - I'm not a fan of prissy, insecure woman who whine. Nicholas at times I could take him or leave him...mostly taking him in bed. I'm not into the whole overbearing kind of guy who doesn't talk much yet demands - but, it looks like his soft side is coming around. Need a steamy read to pick you up from a book hangover or book slump? St What can I say?

    There are so many things I liked about this book. Even though Kate frustrated me sometimes with her quick temper, she was easy to like and the connection she had with Nick is electric to say the least. It was maturely written with a strong female character and an interesting storyline. The sex was hot and plentiful and the book was well polished and edited. This is a fabulous erotic romance written by a charming debut author. Well worth the read. 4 Stars!

Ace K Gray weaves together an intense, suspenseful and steamy romance, with everything you look for in a book, and her writing is PHENOMENAL!! I absolutely LOVED the premise of this story, and not only looked forward to the steamy scenes between Kate and Nicholas, but between trying to figure out what was going on and who was messing around with them, I got so caught up in the storyline and just needed to know it NOW!! It was such a thrill! I literally almost forgot this was a book that contained scorching hot sex!!!! (This is an ALMOST!! believe you me, I knew when a good ribbon scene was coming and buckled myself in for the ride). I 100000% believe that if 50 Shades of Grey can get that much hype and become a movie, then Strictly Business needs that SAME recognition!! I would kill to watch this on the big screen (did I go to far with that?? Maybe not KILL, but you catch my drift lol) I am in LOVEEEEE WITH this book, these characters and of course Ace Gray has a fan for LIFEEEE!!! I need more Nicholas and anything else Ace has up her sleeve!!!

    I can't believe I waited this long to finally read Nicholas and Kate's story. Holy Hotness, Ace absolutely slayed me with this story. From the first page I was intrigued, hooked, and in love with these characters. The way Ace writes is incredible, she has a way to pulling you into her characters lives and pretty much tying you down until you've reached the end, that's when you find yourself heading to one click the next book in this series.

You'll definitely need book two because Ace leaves us with one helluva cliffy, so go and one click both these books NOW!

    When I first heard about Strictly Business I was intrigued to say the least The cover, the blurb and the fact it was Ace Gray's first book, made it all the more intriguing From the first page, I was SOLD! I have a hard time with beginnings of books. It takes a while for me to get into it, but Ace's writing was so addictive I just kept reading I just adored the characters. I loved Kate's strong character but mostly her sarcasm and hate for mornings. I saw myself in her too many times. #whereismycoff When I first heard about Strictly Business I was intrigued to say the least The cover, the blurb and the fact it was Ace Gray's first book, made it all the more intriguing From the first page, I was SOLD!

That's new for me' I just wanted more pages to appear because I just wanted to keep reading! And I'm actually happy it's a triology because One book is just not enough. I need more Kate and Nicholas. Even though the ending made me want to throw something out of the window, I just don't think I'd change a thing What an amazing debut novel, and I can honestly say Ace Gray has become one of my favorite authors. I can't wait to see what she'll be throwing our way.

My knees knocked together. “What did you say?” I breathed. “You heard me, Ms. Elliott.” “I’ll never get you upstairs if you start running your hands all over me. It drives me crazy. I’ll fuck you on the stairs.” “How many times do I have to tell you that you are much more important than the company?” Relationships are—as it turns out—difficult. I can say that this author has my 100% recommendation, the story is well written, well developed and well explained. I can’t wait for more she can bring us, so keep going Girl!!! *ARC provided in exchange for an honest review*

    DNF at 28% idk if that's too early but for now I have to leave it as is. This book was so ridiculous on insta love, I don't think I've ever read something like it before. It might not have been awful if there was some time before the obsession with each other. At a later time I will maybe come back to this book and read it again but it isn't for me right now, the writing itself was pretty good so I would not write off Ace Gray for good at all and I'll definitely give one of her other books a try DNF at 28% idk if that's too early but for now I have to leave it as is.

    This book deserves more than 5 stars! I hands down love this book and I can't believe it's a debut! "Strictly Business" is hot, super sexy, suspenseful and will have you on the edge of your seat. There is a new master of kink and his name is Nicholas Bryant! The female lead Kate Elliott is a strong character which I really like and admire. Ace Gray is a author to watch out for, I am very much looking forward to more from her!

Both are CEO, both are the boss, both are the owner of their company. So when business and pleasure getting mixed up, everything getting more complicated. The story is about two people trying to get into relationships, even though Love is strange terms for them. Falling in love shouldn't be an option, because opening their hearts and breaking down the walls means letting someone has the power to break or hurt you. They're trying to deny their feelings for each other, because giving in to their feelings means giving in their control. The pull they're feeling is something they're not use to. So when the needs to be with each other so strong, there's no other way out other than accept it and do anything to hold and protect it As for the characters. Nick...OMG he's super hot, he's always in control, so determined, although sometimes I want to slap him for his hot and cold and temper and those secrecy thing. He's a bit like Christian Grey and Gideon Cross. So what's not to love, right?!?!?! I loveeee him. Kate...this girl is a badass girl. She's a badass CEO who's got temper and has a mouth like a sailor. Yup you don't want to mess with this girl. I admire this girl. Also there's Laura and Ari who brings laughter. Yup I love all those characters. Love all their banters. Two hard headed and stubborn people meet, oh yeah the banter is fiery. If you love romance with two strong powerful characters..you need to read this one.

But then she meets Nicholas Bryant and her lady parts start to hum, and can we blame her? Things are never what they seems, and that can't be more accurate when talking about powerful but super distant CEO Mr. Bryant. I love how things twist and change as this story progresses. I love the suspense and mystery of the story, not just with what's going on behind the scenes but also with what is going on in Nicholas's past. He's a nut you want to crack and then devour ;) But I really love that a strong powerful business women, can also be submissive in the bedroom. I didn't love the ending, because if I didn't have the next book already to read I would be screaming and cursing out the author. Who am I kidding even though I have the next book, I still spent several minutes yelling and screaming and cursing out Ace Gray :O I honestly loved everything about this story, these characters and the world the author has created for us. Why can't she have 20-30 books already written so I could just book binge all summer ? 5 amazing hot Stars!

    OMG Ace Gray I love you! Strictly Business was fantastic and I love Kate and Nicholas. This story is not your typical "millionaire business man" because Kate herself is a Millionaire Business women. The chemistry between these two is off the charts and you can feel it come through the pages of the book. I love how these two need each other and that they won't let life's bullshit stand in their way.

    What a story!!!! Holy Cow! Nick is one strong and sexy alpha male. I absolutely loved the chemistry that him and Kate share. With two strong and powerful main characters this book has it all, steamy scenes and even a bit of suspense. Throughout the story I had changed my mind a few times on who it was. The ending is definitely one good cliffhanger and I absolutely loved it. I have my theories on who is behind it and it took till the end for me to completely switch my decision once again.

    Strictly business blew me away. I absolutely love when a strong, independent woman can be open enough to let herself go, and be dominated in the bedroom. Well in Ace Grays heroine Kate we certainly see that. Nicholas and Kate do fall into a bit of "insta-love" but it's done well. Kate Elliott is successful and at 28 lives the life of a power player in Manhattan, doesn't take a genius to figure out that can be intimidating to most men.

Kate Elliott is successful and at 28 lives the life of a power player in Manhattan, doesn't take a genius to figure out that can be intimidating to most men. So meeting Nicholas Bryant who is even more successful, confident, cocky, and dominate is an instant attraction for Kate. Passions can't be denied and Kate and Nick are soon wrapped up in each other, of course things can't be quite that simple and one thing after another seems to get in their way. I really enjoyed seeing both sides of Kate and Nicholas, seeing their business sides, and then the more relaxed normal side. During their "normal" moments is when they let down their guards and we as readers feel them really share with each other, they really like each other and continuously make each other laugh, and of course don't forget the sexy times! The chemistry between Nick and Kate is off the charts, Nick is a sexy man and gives Kate exactly what she needs. Yummy!!! I also liked that they both tried to give each other what the other needed, even when it against their own natural instincts. Without giving any spoilers, I have to say there were a few times I wish Kate would have listened, but in all honesty she was already bending in areas she wasn't used to and with the fact that Nick is evasive in so many areas of his life, I can't say I'd do any different. One real jem of the story is Nicholas's sister Aribella, she's an absolute firecracker and someone id totally be friends with, I really hope we see more of her in book two (maybe her own book at some point) hint, hint

She runs her own company and is proud of the success that she has accomplished with her company. She has a good life. She thinks she has everything until she meets Nicholas Bryant at an event and what she doesn't know is that her life is about to change. For better and for worse. Nicholas lives his life a certain way. Running his successful business and sleeping with many woman is just two of his ways. That is until he sets his eyes on Kate and he always gets what he wants. He finds a challenge with her and he finds something that he never thought he would find. He can't stop thinking about her and wanting her. Nicholas has never felt this way about anyone and Kate feels the same way about him. This has both of them confused and intrigued with where this can go. But when secrets are revealed and threats are made, will these two stick by each other or will they pull away when they find out the truth.

    MMMmmm totally orgasmic! The very talented Ace Gray has written a super steamy panting soaking read. She had me hooked from the very first electrifying meeting between the extremely fashionable, fiery and fiercely independent Kate Elliott and the handsome, overprotective, controlling, emotionally inept but super sculpted and sexy Nicholas Bryant. Together these two are explosive in and out of the sheets, both trying to let down their walls. I dream of looking into those expressive blue/grey eyes a MMMmmm totally orgasmic!
