I love an Ice Queen. The X Ingredient was my first read of 2022, okay technically I listened to it, and I have no regrets.

Laurie Holcombe is smart, efficient, and desperately in need of a job. It’s too bad that her new boss Diana Parker doesn’t think she is suitable for it. Against her better judgment Diana hires Laurie and ends up getting more than she bargained for.

This book is an office romance, which I love but is also tricky. Given the dynamics between a boss and her employee, the author has to walk a fine line between attraction and ethics.

Something I really appreciated in this book is the awareness the MCs had, and not only of how they would look if people found out. Laurie’s mental state throughout the book and the steps she took to protect herself were fascinating.

Overall I really enjoyed this book and it was a great way to start a new year.

I think I much preferred this one as a FanFiction... this one comes off as Porn with Plot without knowing the original character’s stories.... over all it’s an okay read. I’m good with the praise and humiliation kink but I just feel like there should have been a warning? The fisting was a bit much for me personally too... only downside to books as opposed to fan fictions I the lack of tags.
