You can just set up a Homegroup between those two machines but don't allow
the other machines in the network to join the Homegroup.
This will give both Homegroup machines exclusive access to each other shared folders.
The other machines in the Workgroup won't have access to the Homegroup machines unless you share a folder using the Homegroup style sharing options "Share With" "Specific people" Add> "Everyone" read/write as required.
Only one problem is that Windows 8 does not retain the Write permission on Library's when you reboot, it's either a glitch or a safety feature so you have to redo them each time you require write access.
