C.M Stunich

Lex Lyndon is used to getting what he wants.

Even if what he wants is to submit.

Olivia “Oli” Ashcraft has a decent job with decent hours and decent pay, so why screw things up? Because Oli has a temper. A bad one. Born and raised in San Francisco, Oli doesn’t have any fantasies of being dominated or manipulated by anyone, let alone a preppy, spoiled CEO. Tired of fighting with the misogynistic jerk in the corner office, Olivia decides to confront Lex only to be offered a tantalizing proposition: take control.

Lex wants a woman in charge, and he’s willing to pay for it.

In the bedroom and out of it.


★★★★ 3.5 – 4 Stars ★★★★

Lex Lyndon – An Alpha male who wants to submit and Oli Ashcraft – a fiesty woman who doesn’t take any shit from anyone, especially the CEO of her company.

When Lex tries to fire Oli for standing up to him, he realises he has met his match and find he likes it. All his life he has got what he wanted, he’s spoilt and has women fawning over him. He is sick of the mewling women and when he gets an earful from Oli, he offers her a deal. He wants to hand over control and he wants her to dominate him in the bedroom.

At first, I was worried that I’d find Lex unappealing but I didn’t. He most definitely wasn’t a doormat and the fireworks between the two were explosive and he didn’t let his alpha-ness retreat without a fight. The banter and bickering was funny and I think CM Stunich did a great job, it was really different from her previous books and it worked.

“You hardly need fancy tricks. Your backbone and your attitude are enough for me.”

“That’s… great. I’m sorry you’ve never heard a woman tell you to fuck off before. Now, I really should get going.”

My only complaint was that there were quite a few typos, which really need to be corrected and the ending was a bit rushed, things progressed at a steady pace but then the last 5% just went at double speed. Other than that I thought this was a refreshing change.

About the Author

C.M. Stunich was raised under a cover of fog in the area known simply as Eureka, CA. A mysterious place, this strange, arboreal land nursed Caitlin’s (yes, that’s her name!) desire to write strange fiction novels about wicked monsters, magical trains, and Nemean Lions (Google it!). She currently enjoys drag queens, having too many cats, and tribal bellydance.

Always a fan of the indie scene and ‘sticking it to the man,’ Ms. Stunich decided to take the road less traveled and forgo the traditional publishing route. You can be assured though that she received several rejections as to ensure her proper place in the world of writers before taking up a friend’s offer to start a publishing company. Sarian Royal was born, and Ms. Stunich’s books slowly transformed from mere baking chocolate to full blown tortes with hand sculpted fondant flowers.

C.M. is a writer obsessed with delivering the very best and scours her mind on a regular basis to select the most unusual stories for the outside world.

Ms. Stunich can be reached via e-mail or by post and loves to hear from her readers. Ms. Stunich also wrote this biography and has no idea why she decided to refer to herself in the third person.
