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 have read a few books by Chelsea before and was very excited to see more from her on my tour schedule!
Meet Rory Clarke, she is a head strong Vice President at her fathers company. She is determined, hard working and full of fire. Don't underestimate her, just because her father owns the company that doesn't mean she has't worked hard her place with in.
Another thing about Rory? She is sleeping with her assistant - hot steamy sex, Check. Lucas is literally sex on legs, the way he fills out a suit should be sinful - but there is an issue he is keeping secrets and they could ruin everything. When I say secret I did figure it out early on in the book and it annoyed me that Rory didn't see it, I wish it has been hidden a little harder because Rory is portrayed as this smart and savvy woman and the fact she didn't figure it out seems a little unrealistic.
“I don’t just want nights, Sunshine.” He put the fork down and continued to look at me with such intensity it was almost hard to look back. “I don’t want just nights. I want mornings. And mid-mornings and late mornings and noons and afternoons and evenings and everything in between. Sunrises, and sunsets, and twilight. I want it all.”…..”I want to be with you. Definitions and everything. I want to call you mine.”
The passion in the relationship was hot and I loved it - I just found everything else a little off and it didn't sit right with me. As much as I wanted to love the book I just couldn't - Don't get me wrong I liked it but I would not read it again. I will however continue to read new books from Chelsea as this book seems very different to her previous work - If you want an amazing read from her I highly suggest 'My Favourite Mistake'.
Over all this was a good story with a happy ending - I finished it and I enjoyed it.
