She’s his boss. He doesn’t care. This office isn’t big enough for the two of them…

When Rory Clarke ends up hiring the guy she spent one steamy night with to be her administrative assistant, she's determined to keep things professional.

Lucas Blaine has other plans for her. He wants Rory, and it’s hard to resist his stunning blue eyes, chin dimple and the way he fills out a suit. Everywhere she looks, there he is, giving her a panty-melting smile and pulling her away for the most amazing (and satisfying) sex she’s ever had in her life.

What starts off as one sexual encounter turns into multiple trysts in and out of the office and the lines she’d tried to draw so carefully are blurring. But the closer they get, the more Rory realizes that there are things about Lucas she doesn’t know, things he’s hiding from her. She’ll have to decide if she can surrender to her feelings or get out while she still can.
I always enjoy a romance book that features an office relationship and this was a good example of one. It has the right amount of snark throughout it that had me grinning like an idiot all the way through. The couple has great chemistry and there is a lot of sexual tension. Rory was like an open book, baring herself and her feelings but Lucas was a bit reserved. He had a lot of secrets, and he even told Rory that he has secrets, and she accepted him anyway. But secrets always come back to bite you in the ass, it's just a matter of time.

Rory was a hoot of a character. She is smart, beautiful and oh-so hilarious. She says exactly what she means and I was constantly laughing at the things she said or did. Even though she is an only daughter and was raised with money, she worked her way up to the position she holds now. She tries to portray herself as a successful bitch at work, but she is not like that outside of it. She is a grounded character and I liked that about her. Lucas is confident and a bit of a smart-ass, and as soon as he walked into the building he clashed with Rory, demanding an interview for the assistant job Rory was filling. When they cross paths again there is no denying that they are going to end up naked! And then she is persuaded to hire him… Oh boy!

I found this to be an easy enjoyable read and it had a lot of humour throughout it and I think that is why I found it hard to put down. The characters were fun, even Sloane, Rory's Best Friend. She was Rory's go to gal for all advice. Although it is definitely an adult romance book, with plenty of steamy sex scenes, there is a hint of seriousness about the story too. I enjoyed the book so much I am keen to read more books in this series when they come out next year!!
