He’s the sexy alpha male in the corner office who goes through assistants faster than free donuts in the breakroom.
I’m the assistant who was chosen to cover for his last fire.
The owner of the company is clear—hook the biggest client in our firm’s history and there’s a partnership for him and a promotion for me. Stipulation—we do it together.
It doesn’t take a tarot card-reading psychic to figure out where our story is headed… late nights, trips out of town, and more than a few awkward moments filled with sexual tension.
No worries though. I pride myself on my willpower. I can totally ignore his sexy grin, his rock-hard body and his dreamy brown eyes. I will not become the woman other women hate.
But it turns out that Enzo Mancini has a lot of layers and if I don’t stop peeling, I’m going to lose everything, including my dignity.
The title speaks for itself! Don’t miss this sexy OFFICE ROMANCE romantic comedy coming June 11th!
Going into this book, I wasn't entirely sure how I would accept Enzo Mancini; would he be a d-bag tool who would irritate the kool-aid out of me? I was pleasantly surprised as I began reading that no, Enzo Mancini is NOT a d-bag tool. Now, he does have his moments of toolery, but it didn't happen as I would have anticipated. I liked that Annie had no problems putting Enzo in his place, as much as she could being an assistant, but especially when she came to the rescue during a critical meeting with a potential client that could have snagged Enzo the coveted partnership.
There's plenty of chemistry between Annie and Enzo, but one of them has some issues in their past that does potentially hinder a chance at a HEA, but I can understand how they were affected by what happened when they were younger. One thing I didn't especially like was the move Enzo pulled for the big meeting with the potential client (certainly a toolery move, followed by toolery comments). Of course that's the defining moment with Annie, and the followup is a big, HUGE eye opener for Enzo, which leads to all kinds of changes.
I gotta say, I loved meeting Enzo's brothers Carm and Dom and I can't wait to get my eyeballs on their stories, especially Carm cause I think he's gonna go down HARD lol.
“Please. Come on, Mr. Mancini.”
Even I notice how weird that sounds coming from her mouth now that our working relationship has turned into more of a tenuous friendship. “Enzo.”
“If I call you Enzo, can I pay my share?” She bats her eyes a few times.
I twist my lips, thinking about it. The taxi driver huffs, annoyed that we’re holding him up. “Sure.”
“Please, Enzo?” she says, stressing both words.
The sound of her voice saying my name like that spurs images of her naked on my bed, begging me to fuck her. Her back arched, her delectable tits prominently on display with her legs spread. I shift in my seat to hide my growing hard-on.
She drops the forty dollars onto my lap and opens the door, leaving before I come back to myself. I lift the forty off my half chub, concocting a plan to get this back to her without her knowing it.
Her voice rings in my head one more time. Please, Enzo?
I might as well admit defeat. Tonight my dreams will be filled with me, Annie Stewart, and the word please.
