Eric Courtland was raised by a loving
mother and Edward J. Courtland, CEO of Courtland Industries,
tyrant extraordinaire and supreme bastard. Recently, Eric
managed to gather evidence of illegal dealings which lands
his father in prison and Eric in charge for the first time
in his life.
Nick Thompson and Eric have been lovers
since their college days but Eric has no time for love once
business takes up every waking moment. Business also
reintroduces Eric to Branford Crane, CEO of Crane BioGen, a
man who knows exactly what he wants and Eric is willing to
be that man no matter the personal cost.
Unfortunately everything starts
spinning out of control. The more Eric tries to hold the
company together and find some contentment in his love life
the faster it all falls apart. Eric needs to figure out
what or who gives him happiness before itís too late.
Strictly Business is a
deep and personal exploration of self discovery for one
tortured soul. This tale tries to prove that money doesnít
always equate with happiness. There are some raw scenes of
BDSM as Eric explores his sexuality and it doesnít always
show this Dom in a positive light. Strictly Business
wonít be for everyone but, I found Ericís journey, his
sometime trial and error approach fascinating as he figures
out what really matters in life. Eric became a person to me
as opposed to a character making Strictly Business
something special even with some rough edges.
