Paranormal Pop Passion: 'Secretary'

Each week paranormal romance author Caden Leigh will give her take on love and sex in both mainstream and supernatural entertainment. The Florida-based scribe of The Silver Septagram, published by Captiva Press, always has an opinion on what's hot - or not.


To date, the mere mention of Secretary makes me smolder after one night - as my insomnia got the better of me - I lounged on my couch surfing through the endless titles on my DISH guide.

About to give up and grab a book, the title caught my eye and I hit the obliging "info" button, read the plot synopsis and became instantly intrigued.  After an unbalanced young woman newly released from a mental institution , finds employment as a secretary to an imperious lawyer, where their employer-employee relationship turns into a erotic, sadomasochistic liaison.

The first incident of the lawyer's wanton need for discipline and submission, made me want to throw out the spellcheck on Microsoft Word and be a bad assistant! Let's just say Mr. Grey's (James Spader) form of correction and  Secretary Lee's (Maggie Gyllenhaal) blissful reaction to his punishment will leave you shopping for paddles and restraints.  Each smack teased my curious appetite, leaving  me  in anticipation for the next carnal rendezvous. And there are many! This is definitely a movie meant to be watched by inquisitive  lovers.

One of my all-time favorite movies! James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhaal are sublime in the two leads...what chemistry these two performers had together. Any failings of the film are erased by the wonderful performances of the film's stars.
