The Boss Series by Abigail Barnette

Three Real Life Sex Toys From The Boss

Much to my chagrin, hot English billionaire Neil Elwood isn’t real. Trust me, I’ve wished hard enough and it’s just not happening. But some of the toys featured in the series are! I can’t tell you about them without revealing some details about the series, but think of them not as spoilers, but teases.

The Screaming O lipstick vibe This thoughtful gift from Neil gives Sophie one of the naughtiest ideas of her life! Featured in The Boss, it’s also a part of the giveaway you can enter during this blog tour. I was looking for something quirky and fun that Neil could give Sophie as a present, and when I stumbled across this, I knew it was perfect. Sophie works at a fashion magazine, so the theme of the gift was a shoe in. The company makes a whole line of novelty sex toys designed to look like make-up. In The Boss, Neil buys Sophie the entire collection.

The Hitachi Magic Wand The Magic Wand is a classic, and for good reason. Some people use it to soothe their aching muscles. Other people use it for more personal fun. And other people, a billionaire Dom, for example, use it for orgasm torture on their very lucky submissives. Sophie and Neil play with a variety of wands in the series, but this specific model is the one that accompanies them on their trip to Paris in The Girlfriend.

The Form 2 from JimmyJane When Sophie gets intimate for the camera in The Girlfriend, this is the vibrator she uses. This is the most unusual vibrator I’ve ever seen, and if you get a chance to meet one in person, they’re super soft. Of course, they’re also prohibitively expensive, so I’ve only ever gotten to meet one at the sex toy store. There are varying vibration modes… what’s not to like?

One of the best parts of writing the Boss series (or the “Bossverse” as readers have called it) was all the fun research I got to do. From uncovering the complicated process of buying a Hermés bag, to learning how a major fashion magazine operates, I have to say that some of the most hilarious—and titillating—research was shopping for this kinky couple’s toys.

Writing. It’s such an unbearable job.

While Neil’s wealth and privilege make adjusting to her new situation easier, Sophie finds herself rebuilding her life around an uncertain future. And while both of them face the changes between them head-on, they’re all too aware that their happiness may be fleeting—and Sophie could lose Neil forever.
