Max is the security chief, as well as a limo driver, for the company Janet works for.  Janet keeps men at arm’s length because of her past, but is also a Domme at the club her employers go to.  Max left the SEALs after his mother was killed and his sister attacked.  Neither one acted on their attraction to each other until an emergency breaks some barriers between them.

Willing Sacrifice is part of author Joey Hill’s Knights of the Board Room series, and is a bit different as it is about the Administrative Assistant to Matt at K&A.  Janet uses BDSM as a way of maintaining control, without the emotional entanglements of a relationship. Max also has his own demons to overcome, but knows about the club as he constantly drives the owners and their ladies there.

I have to give Ms. Hill kudos for the research she did regarding SEALs and their training.  I also was intrigued by the way she used some of the concepts and training with her interactions between Janet and Max as they explored their relationship, especially since Max is not a submissive by any means.  The chemistry is intense and the scenes between them are hot. I was also intrigued by the give and take between them and Max’s willingness to sometimes submit emotionally to Janet when she needed him to for her to maintain balance. 

All the characters from the previous five books show up, giving support as needed to both Max and Janet.  Readers get additional insight into them as you see some things from both Max’s and Janet’s perspective.  While readers don’t need to read the previous books to enjoy Willing Sacrifice, I recommend you do to get the most out of this story.
