Power may be best when it's shared...

He's used to dominating...
Tarak Nektosha is a self-made man, against all odds. He accomplished that by making sure he's the one in charge, both in the boardroom and in the bedroom.

She's taking her power back...
Sabra Donovan has ambition to spare and energy to burn. So what if her last lover was a disappointment? She's never going to be anyone's plaything ever again.

Sabra's outstanding performance at a corporate photo op attracts Tarak's attention, and the lines begin to blur. What happens when the one on top surrenders and the one used to obeying begins to call the shots?

San Diego

Sabra has just started working for the Nektosha company. She started in a little cubicle on the lower floors, but she's planning on one day working upstairs with the big guys.
Now it's the weekend and she's supposed to be having a good time at the beach with her boyfriend, but it seems he's having a good time with a friend of theirs.
Not all too sad about the break-up, she's about to leave for home, when her work-phone rings.
She's being summoned to a fancy hotel to her company's unveiling of the new series of Off-Road vehicles. Not an event such a low-level employee would normally be invited to, BUT all the VPs are stranded in Alaska and it's up to her to represent the company.
The boss will be there too of course. Tarak Nektosha.
She has never met the guy.

But as soon as she hears this sexy dark voice she knows she's in trouble.

Because as it turns out that voice belongs to none other than boss-man.
He just sent his 'girlfriend' packing because she looked to cheap for a business event. Nice.
He shouldn't have started to mix his private and business lives.
As soon as he sees Sabra he's extremely intrigued though and he grabs her to help him with the presentation.
Sabra feels like a crushing teenage girl in Tarak's presence.
He's so sexy and masculine and dark and sexy and grrr...

 He was unfairly attractive. Mother Nature was a f***ing bitch to make a man so mouthwatering.

Tarak's Aston Martin

After a very successful night Tarak doesn't want to see Sabra leave, but she doesn't accept his invitation into his suite.

But he's not one to give up ☺

The next morning she again proves herself in a meeting and Tarak moves her up to his floor and into her own office.

But Sabra doesn't want personal 'things' to get in the way of her professional life.
That's when Tarak presents her with a challenging possiblilty. ☺

A challenge that takes us all the way to Alaska ☺

And since it's verrrry cold up there, we need to share some body heat ☺☺☺

But of course everything is not as easy as it could be. Tarak has some left-over hurt from his past and Sabra is not sure if she's ready to fall for and maybe even submit to a guy like Tarak.

Could there be a future for Sabra & Tarak?
Will they get their HEA?
Or will everybody die at the end? ☺☺☺

Will there be a Cliffhanger? ☺☺☺

I'm not telling you of course ☺☺☺ 



The story was really very sexy and romantic and interesting. BUT I had a few problems with it too.
I always had the feeling that the book used to be 150 pages longer, and someone cut out most of it - or at least it SHOULD'VE been 100 pages longer. It just felt too short. I would've given 5 Stars if there would've have been a bit MORE - what MORE exactly, I don't really know, but I just needed a bit more ☺
Which doesn't make the story bad, not at all. I really loved it.
Tarak is totally different from other book heroes. I loved him!
And Sabra too. She's really sweet and she's fighting for what she wants.

I had a few problems understanding the whole two-hundred-thousand-dollar idea. That was probably a bit too complicated for me...I just didn't understand why and what the whole purpose of that was ☺
But it didn't bother me all that much.

One thing about the writing that bothered me a bit....the characters always CURLED THEIR LIPS - Dawn really makes them do that a lot. And I really can't picture that in my mind. When I try to picture it, it looks like some kind of wild animal about to bark or bite...And that's not really what Dawn meant... she means they're about to smile or laugh...well - it's just me probably, but I didn't like that.

But - all ^that^ aside - I really loved the story!!!

OUT OF BOUNDS was a really erotic tale of two people finally finding their other half ....
Taking us all the way from beautiful Southern California to the breathtaking Alaskan wilderness.

The next book in the series FILTHY RICH - coming February 2015 - will be about Sabra's best friend Celeste and Tarak's 'brother' Nartan.
And poor Nartan....He'll have his hands full with Celeste ☺
