Kari Reynolds is a human resources specialist on a short-term assignment at Coleman Engineering. It’s her job to lead workshops but there’s one big problem – the boss, Matt Bradford.

Being near Mr. Tall, Dark and Smoking Hot brings out Kari’s naughty side. One look at him makes her forget what’s appropriate in the workplace, and she’s smart enough to know the heated glances he’s shooting her way have nothing to do with business.

Now all she has to do is convince Matt to ignore her job title and try a little office pleasure…

I haven’t read too many books by Helenkay Dimon before but I need to change that because I enjoyed this book. It was short, it was cute and pretty steamy. Me likey. Very much.

This book follows Kari Reynolds and Matt Bradford as they bang their way to their happy ending. Kari is an HR specialist that was sent to Matt’s company to hold HR related workshops for his employees and it’s really funny that she works in HR considering what she’s been thinking about doing to the big boss of the company she’s currently on assignment to.

Once her week of HR workshops is done, Kari does something she never thought she’d do. She comes onto Matt Bardford and even more surprising, he’s game….to everything.

This book didn’t read as a short story. There was enough character development and enough storyline to keep me satisfied so I was a happy camper while reading this. It didn’t take long to read but I enjoyed every minute. I thought Dimon did a great job of telling this story, keeping it entertaining without bogging it down with details that weren’t needed. The story moved at a fast pace but when it ended, I was happy. I was happy with the story, with the characters and I couldn’t wait to read the next book in the series so kudos to Helenkay Dimon on this one. I’m a fan.

Grade: 4 out of 5

There is always something interesting happening behind the scenes at Coleman Engineering...

Millionaire businessman Rob Coleman has more than work on his mind. The glassed-in atrium of his office building provides the perfect view of the sexy woman in the office across from his. The same woman who wear short skirts, and Rob has a certain weakness for pretty women in short skirts.

When a chance run-in at the lobby coffee cart leads to much more intimate meetings, none of which are work-related, Rob realizes he's lost control and is thinking about Ella Lachlan all the time. For a man who doesn't mix business with pleasure, figuring out his fantasy woman is also his ex-wife's new assistant means one thing – trouble.

This book was another great addition to Dimon’s backlist. Short and steamy which has been just my speed lately. I have to say that I’m a fan of sex in the office. Reading this book had me lifting my eyebrows and grinning like a crazy person. It was a great way to spend an hour or two. It was very entertaining and the idea of meeting the sexy guy from across the way for a quickie at work is so dirty and yet so intriguing.

I wasn’t a fan of the secrets that Rob kept from Ella and the way that Ella found out about those secrets but really, I forgave him because well, he was Rob. The sexy way that he started their little affair made my heart about go up in flames.  It was so sexy and well, I would have called off and spent the entire freaking day waiting on the damn elevator for Rob so I don’t blame Ella for being game.

I need to read more Helenkay Dimon books because this was another good one.
