I’ve landed in New York City with my resume in one hand and my V-card in the other. The resume? I'll give to any man on the street. The other? Well . . . I won’t settle for anything less than lightning bolt chemistry and so far no one has flipped that switch.
Until I meet Barclay Hammond, CEO of the most prestigious publishing house in NYC and the city’s most eligible bachelor.
And my new boss.
The raw attraction between us is off the charts. Late nights together in the city, the looks he gives me across the boardroom table make him impossible to resist. I want him to be the one and he wants me too...
There’s only one BIG problem. Sleeping with your boss is strictly forbidden at Hammond Press.
Who knew losing it would be so complicated?

Contessa “Tessa” Holly is ready to make her way in the world. She has a great friend in Maggie. You may end up liking her as much as I did – she was great in getting me to chuckle. Barclay Hammond is the man in charge. In his personal life he’s not as in control. Our author was great in building her story before our main characters attempt any type of relationship.
Tessa shows how tough it is to give up everything to try and make your way in one of the largest cities in our country. You can almost picture how tough it was on her - giving herself a short amount of time to try and make her dreams come true. But then she gets an unexpected surprise. We get a good sense of her apprehension when temptation is put in her path.
Barclay is a man who seems self-assured at least in business but when it comes to matters of the heart not so much. He asks for help from a good friend – I almost wanted to see where that advice was going to take him. I also wanted to know more about this friend.
I liked how our author gave me a connection to Tessa – we both have blogs. It was nice to see how it connected her to the opportunities that opened up for her. This book was listed as an office romance but I can’t really say as I agree with that since our main characters don’t actually meet at the office. I loved that Barclay is a man of experience. Not every good-looking hunky guy has to be in his twenties or thirties.
Our author’s story is very realistic. I’ve been to New York just to visit. I’ve never wanted to live there but I applaud anyone who has jumped in with both feet to make their way in that town. It’s a town where you can feel very lonely but I was glad to see that Tessa had a friend who wanted to follow her dream as well. She was able to find what her heart wanted. I was very glad that I had a chance to get to know these characters.
“Where are we going?” She turns a curious eye toward me, tilting her head to the side. I glance over my shoulder as I guide her a few steps away and around a corner.
“Trust me?” She nods, and I point to the closed door in front of us.
“The cloakroom?” she asks with a teasing smile.
“Shush,” I whisper, twisting the handle to see if it’s locked. It moves in my hand. I’m in luck.
I open the door wide enough for us both to slide inside, then leave it cracked a few inches so a sliver of light streams in. Aside from a few empty hangers on a rod, the room is bare.
“What are we doing in here?” Tessa asks, but her eager eyes give her away. She wants me as much as I want her.
“I need something from you before we join the others.” I lean forward and speak into her ear.
“What’s that?” she breathes.
“This.” I place my hands on her back. She shivers at my touch, following with a sweet sigh. My fingers trail over her velvety skin, lingering at the simple hook connecting her lone strap. If only we had more time. “Your skin’s so smooth and silky.”
I bend down and kiss her lips, and she returns it with a passion matching mine. Tessa links her fingers behind my neck, and we are lost in each other. Minutes later, when we both need to draw in a breath, I move my lips down her neck and over the exposed curves of her breasts.
“I want to taste all of you,” I say against her skin, and feel her pulse racing like mine.
Dropping to my knee, I bring my hands to the back of her toned legs, and trace the delicate skin behind her knees. Her muscles flex and release in anticipation. With a feather like touch, I inch up her thighs, finding the lacy edge of her panties. “Has anyone touched you here?”
“No one,” she blows out between labored breaths. She gazes down at me with eyes full of desire, but there’s a tentativeness in them I can’t ignore. My touches, and the promise of more between us, are new and unchartered territory for her.
I rise to my full height, changing our position. Looking down at her, I wonder if this beautiful woman is ready for what I want to do to her and what we can be together. I have to ease her into things, build her confidence. It should be her decision to freely give into the passion and trust me. Let me make her mine. I won’t push her from the base of the mountain to the peak in one night.
“I want to be the first. Are you okay with that?” I run my fingers over the curve of her shoulders.
“Yes, please,” she begs.
