SINCE I SAW YOU by Beth Kery

Eccentric-genius inventor Kam Reardon begrudgingly comes to Chicago to find the best market for his groundbreaking technology and falls into an erotic relationship with Lin Soong, his billionaire brother’s second-in-command.

Lin has heard horror stories about Kam, Ian Noble’s brilliant but unrefined half brother, who lives a reclusive existence in a crumbling manor house in a tiny French town. As Ian’s most trusted executive, Lin has been charged with helping Kam navigate the business world and find the best partners to help him launch a game-changing biofeedback product. But the man she meets in a trendy restaurant isn’t uncivilized, just genuinely unaffected by most social constructs. He’s also the most devastatingly attractive man she’s ever met, and, in a completely uncharacteristic move, she has a blazing sexual encounter with him the night they meet. Kam is shocked that the seemingly reserved executive is so willing to explore sexual eroticism and responds to it—and him—in such an explosive way. He’s not usually one for intimacy, but something about Lin moves him in ways he’s never experienced. Of course, she’s tied to her job and devoted to his brother, and he’s not convinced her reasons for that are strictly professional. As they work to position his product, Kam begins to hope that Lin might be his most important partner of all. Best-selling erotic-romance author Kery pens a red-hot tale of the road to love complicated by scorching, graphically described sex, including light BDSM. With two enigmatic main characters who seem to be completely mismatched but come to see themselves as perfect for each other in every way, Kery weaves together a story that nicely balances the romance and the erotica and throws in some satisfying emotional details concerning family and relationship back story. In a subgenre that often misses the mark in some element of writing, storytelling, worldbuilding or character development, Kery does a fine job pulling them all together. 

An intensely sexual love story.
