Kelly takes over from her father, not knowing she has an enemy she will be blindsided with.  Because of her position, she has had a problem finding a man that will dominate her and not be so impressed with her position, it affects the relationship.  Matthew realizes exactly what she needs and sets out to give it to her.

Taming the Boss Lady, the third book in the Masters of Submission series, takes a look at a very powerful woman that seems to scare men once they realize who she is.  Matthew doesn’t care about that with the exception that she didn’t tell him herself, so he pushes her to make sure she knows it makes no difference to him.

As the book progresses, we get to see the difference that being a submissive in her personal life, to another powerful figure, relieves her stress to the point she is able to do what she has to.  Kelly’s story is so true about powerful people in positions that seem to rule their lives to the point of excluding everything else.  The health problems that this creates are also highlighted.  I really like the solution the author gives us within this story about living the BDSM life.  I realize that this is not the answer for everyone, but it works here.

I loved Matthew.  He accurately assessed what Kelly needed, though in real life communication is the key in this lifestyle.  I was really blindsided by who Kelly’s enemy was, because it really threw Kelly’s world into turmoil.  I should not have been surprised by the reason the person did it for, because it happens all too often in families.

This series is one that can be read as standalone books, though I will be reading the series again.  I am looking forward to the next book.
