Briefs are Elena Thomas’s life, whether they’re legal at her day job or on the men in the erotic novels she writes. She’s just fine with saving her imagination for her books until temptation appears in the form of Nunzio, the smokin’-hot office IT guy. When he discovers one of her scorching books shooting out of the printer, Elena’s not sure if he wants her because she’s inventive or because he thinks she’s desperate. That doesn’t stop her from taking advantage of his “services”.
On her desk. On the copier. And, oh yeah—in her boss’s chair.
Nunzio’s shocked to learn Elena’s wall-hugging persona hides a wildcat of a woman with delicious fantasies and an enticing wit. She’s exactly what he’s been looking for in an adventurous lover—and girlfriend. He knows she enjoys their sexual research. Now he just has to convince her that sizzling sex is only the first chapter of their blazing-hot romance.
Elena Thomas is a legal secretary by day and a steamy erotica writer by night. While at work, she works on her writing until Nunzio, the new computer tech, gets a look at her work. His interest piqued, he pursues her, wanting to make her fantasy into a reality.
Elena resists temptation since they work together but the fire between them is too potent to deny. One night at the office, she lets him break down her walls, thinking one night will put out the fire but as she soon finds out, one night will not be enough.
I'm normally not a huge fan of the whole writer as a main character but the cover attracted me to this book. Ms. Quinn has proven that a good writer can make anything work. From the passionate build-up between Nunzio and Elena to the smoking hot sex scenes, everything flowed perfectly.
I literally couldn't stop reading this book. The sex kept getting hotter and even hotter with every passing scene. Even though I had to sleep, I needed to keep reading because the plot and the writing just completely had a grip on me and wouldn't let go. Nunzio was one of the hottest heroes I have seen in a long time, and not just because I'm partial to Italian men. The chemistry between the hero and heroine was off the charts.
This book was deliciously sinful and I'm looking forward to other books from Ms. Quinn, especially since her sex scenes are amazing.
