Book: Office Toy by Cleo Peitsche

I received a copy of Office Toy from Netgalley in exchange for my review.

Elle has an interview at Cunningham and Associates, and when she turns up she is surprised by the unconventional approach. First she has to deal with Nolan, a moody receptionist who makes her bad coffee and seems to dislike her, then Cunningham interviews her, in which he orders her to take off her cheap clothes and measures her for a new wardrobe. What happens next is probably best left to the imagination.

 Please take this warning seriously! This book has scenes, well extended scene really, of a sexual nature including group sex. I'll admit that I wasn't actually prepared for the amount of sex that was in Office Toy, I did expect some but I also expected some story line.

There was very little in the way of development of the main character, Elle, all you really learn about her is that she likes sex, her mother lives with her, she has a sister, and she graduated six months ago. As someone who seems to focus on the characters in a book more than anything else, I don't think that this one was really for me.

The men in the book, the people that were supposed to be working, and yet seemed to have beds, bondage equipment and baths in their office, were similarly not particularly developed. And the fact that they did just seem interested in sex with Elle rather than anything else kind of detracted from them as characters.

The one thing that was going for this book, was that the writing style flowed really well. Though if you're not wanting a book that is basically written porn, then this isn't the book for you. Its not often I say this but I don't think I'll be reading any more of Peitsche's books. Clean out your E-reader Challenge Sign-up
