Unleasing the Receptionist by Juniper Bell – Review/Giveway/Excerpt


You can tie a girl up, but you can’t keep her down…

…the Receptionist, Book 3

In the year since Dana joined Ethan and Simon’s firm, the three of them have found the perfect balance of power and pleasure in their three-way, work/play relationship. Not only that, but it’s been the firm’s most successful year financially.

Except something is missing. Her men won’t tell her anything about their past. How they met, or how they formed such an unconventional business and personal partnership. Until they start sharing their secrets, Dana fears she’ll always be the odd girl out.

Everything changes when a vengeful former partner resurfaces. Suddenly, both the business and their idyllic relationship are under siege. With a tax auditor watching their every move, the three must be on their best behavior.

Never one to back down from a challenge, Dana seizes the chance to prove herself—and finally win her sexy bosses’ full trust and confidence. Now the race is on to root the evil nemesis out of their lives once and for all—before her dream relationship cracks under the pressure.




I got to work early the next day and booted up the spy program. No more going easy on Standish, liar and weasel. Mission: Nail the Accountant. Just call me 007, emphasis on the double O—that stands for orgasm. Time to get some dirt on this dude who’d lied his way into our cozy little firm. I dressed for the occasion in a peekaboo bra and a thong, covered by a plaid skirt and a white cotton blouse whose buttons just happened to be hanging by a thread.

Standish arrived with a smile like morning sunshine. How dare he? I hid my sense of betrayal behind an equally lying smile.


“Good morning,” I sang, like Snow White talking to the birdies in the forest.


He blinked and adjusted his glasses. Oops, had I overdone it? “Good morning to you.” Looking rather dazzled, he meandered toward his office. I waited until he’d fussed with his tea, pulled up his chair, opened his laptop.


Then I got to work. I knew exactly what the hidden video camera showed. The desk, the chair, me. I stood up and yawned, stretching my arms until the top button of my blouse popped off.


“Oops!” I faced the camera and looked down at my button. In the process, with an ingenious sleight of hand, I managed to get rid of the next button as well. My blouse hung open, my white peekaboo bra showing through in all its obscene glory, showing off my dark nipples in between little patches of lace. “Oh, no,” I said, pulling a distressed face. “I wonder if I have any safety pins.”


I pretended to bend over to look in my desk drawers. But really I was trying to catch a glimpse of the computer screen. There was Peter Standish, goggle- eyed, standing in front of the monitor with his hand down his pants. I bent to search the bottom drawer and felt my skirt ride up the back of my thighs, up, up, until I felt nothing but air on my rear. I knew what he was seeing. Bare ass, my pussy hidden by nothing more than the tiny string of the thong.


Standish’s hand moved faster. I watched him watch me, wiggled my butt just so, watched the effect it had on him, the way his face went slack with lust, the way his eyes bulged.


“What are you doing?” Simon’s voice jolted me, as did the sharp slap on my ass. I jumped, feeling heat flame in my cheeks. I quickly hit the off button on my computer, but not before I saw what Simon’s spank had done to Standish.

It had sent him off like a rocket. He bent over double as he came and came into his own fist.


I straightened up. “Nothing. Looking for a safety pin. Look at my blouse!”

I turned and showed Simon my missing buttons.


“Well, that is unfortunate,” Simon drawled.

“I thought you guys were at an early meeting.”


“Did you?” His eyes went emerald green the way they did when he wanted me.


“No physical contact, remember?” I whispered. “Ethan’s rules.”


He studied me. He knew I was up to something. I knew he knew I was up to something. The truth lay between us like a thundercloud about to burst.



Okay, where to start?  I love my Dana, Simon and Ethan.  Oh how I love them.  The perfect menage, will almost perfect.  Secrets, an old business partner and being audited are things that don’t sit well with our threesome.  In fact, it almost drives them apart.

Dana is my kinda girl.  She’s smart, sexy, can play the brat, but she is conflicted.  Throughout the last year working for Simon and Ethan, she doesn’t feel appreciated enough.  She still considers herself the “receptionist”; not a real part of the company.  She doesn’t know how Simon and Ethan met and the true nature of their relationship.  They keep assure her that the past is the past and it should be forgotten.  Move forward.  Well, when an old business partner comes into town, Dana’s had enough.  Time to prove that she’s more than just the receptionist and their play toy.

Ethan and Simon can not be more different in everything they do and want.  Even physically, they are different.  Ethan, is the master of their threesome; Simon the trainer.  It has taken me until this book to fully understand and appreciate Ethan.  He is not an easy man to like sometimes.   Simon, I feel in love with from the start.  He’s easy to love; Ethan not so much.  When their secret is revealed its a shocker but it fully explains them, their relationship and Dana’s part in the relationship.

This story is a quick, fun read that has everything going for it.  Great plot, the pacing never slows down and things that are done in an office that is highly inappropriate.  😉  Be warned though, there is spanking, voyeurism, exhibitionism, M/F/M,  M/M, F/F (hot), toy action, anal, oral and every menage position that I hadn’t thought of.  I needed a fan when I was done reading.  Ms. Bell can write erotic with the best of them.  The dialogue between the three is hot and sweet.

If you have not picked up any of the books in the series, I highly recommend reading them.  For this reader, Unleashing the Receptionist is the best.  Ms. Bell dives further into their relationship with great results.
