Review by: Magnolia
Veronica Butler avoids risks as a rule, but when faced with celebrating her thirty-fifth birthday alone, she dons her sexiest dress and heads to a single's club. She’s startled when the attention she draws is that of her supervisor, Vicente Salazar. They’ve worked on the same team at an architectural firm, designing a hotel with Gaudi-influenced elements. Veronica has indulged in several fantasies starring the sexy Spaniard. Now she’s fueling his.
Though she knows it's a mistake, that this decision may affect the office atmosphere, she gives into her desire and allows him to show her exquisite pleasure in public places. From the back of a limousine to his office to an alcove in a museum, each sexual encounter is exciting, challenging, terrifying. Each encounter shows her more of who she is. Each encounter risks her heart. Now if only she can convince him to risk his.
Veronica Butler is facing her 35th birthday alone so she decides to go out and celebrate. Having been alone for the past ten months since breaking up with her boyfriend, she’s determined to get laid. Wearing a slip dress that says “come f*ck me” all over it, she goes to a bar and immediately has several men vying for the chance to bed her.
Vicente Salazar is out with friends and he’s ready to go home when in walks a beautiful woman reeking of pheromones. As he watches her sit on a barstool and several men approach her, he realizes he recognizes her, and decides to join the party.
Veronica almost falls off her stool when Vicente walks up to her. Seeing her boss in front of her is more than a shock. But when he asks her to leave with him, she does. And when they’re in his limo and he exposes her so the chauffeur can watch, Veronica realizes there is more to her boss than she ever knew.
I loved this short story. An office romance is always a treat and Ms. Jay uses every office scenario available to put Veronica and Vicente into delightful positions. Full of humor, surprises and some of the hottest sex I’ve ever read, this book is a treat for the libido. This is another to put in your bedtime stories pile!
