An Alisa Review: Lace-Covered Compromise by Silvia Violet


Rating:  3 stars out of 5


Adam Kingston expects to inherit his father’s multinational conglomerate. When he finds out half of it went to Nate Thomas—an annoying man whose dreams for Kingston Corp.’s future clash with Adam’s need to stave off financial disaster—Adam is furious. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to wrest control of Kingston Corp. from Nate.


Nate may be soft-spoken, but he refuses to be swayed by Adam’s arrogant demands. When Nate accidentally drops a pair of his lacy panties in front of Adam, there’s no mistaking Adam’s interest. Nate hadn’t realized Adam was bisexual, but now that his secret is out, Nate is willing to use Adam’s lust against him if it means protecting the welfare of the company he loves.


For Adam and Nate, hatred and desire are closely linked. Their inability to compromise threatens the company and could expose their tightly held secrets. But as they work together to develop a plan to save Kingston Corp., they begin to realize there might be more to their relationship than anger and lust.


I do love a man in panties and had high hopes for this story but felt there was some depth missing from this story.  Adam is a completely spoiled brat but at least he admits it but isn’t very good on other people calling him on his crap.


Adam just knows that his father is just punishing him from the grave by giving half of the company to Nate.  Nate has a more open view than Adam.  Both of them need to learn to compromise and work together in order to keep the company afloat.


I didn’t feel any connection to Nate, there wasn’t much in the story to allow a connection.  We saw everything from Adam’s point of view and with his personality there wasn’t really the opportunity to get know others as he is quite self-absorbed and the amount of talking he does in his head is a bit disturbing.  The way Adam’s father treated him did a lot of mental damage to him and that doesn’t help him adapt or change for others.


Cover art by LC Chase is eye catching and gives good visuals for this story.
