Is the smut good? Yes. Is the book cringey? Also yes.
I actually decided to read this because I saw a lot of comments saying this had some of the best smut scenes in any book they’d read. I will admit, there are definitely some graphic and hot scenes. But it also took me some time to get over the premise of the book being about a boss who coerces his employee into doing anything he wants sexually in order to have time off and a raise. Yes, the employee agrees to it but it’s just very cringe and doesn’t feel entirely consensual. The latter half of the book feels more consensual which is slightly redeeming… but not enough for me.
