Anne has worked for her sexy, ex-surfer, businessman boss for seven years, and she’s been in love with him for two. Jake doesn’t think about her as anything but his ever-efficient assistant, though. She’s been trying to get over her feelings by dating other men and interviewing for other jobs—which doesn’t make Jake very happy. But Anne is determined not to put her life on hold for him.
When she gets a new job offer, Jake will do anything he can to keep her, but he still only seems to want her as an employee. Anne might find him irresistible, but she’s learned to resist. There are lines that he’ll just never cross.
But then everything changes in only one night...
Anne has been in love with her boss, Jake, since she started working with him. Now, three years have passed by and Anne has realized that nothing will ever happen between the two of them. So, she's decided to move forward by accepting a new job offer. She thinks Jake will be indifferent to the situation, but he's anything but.
This was an interesting novella to get through and it's fast pace did work in its favor. It's a good read when you want something quick and satisfying to read. The chemistry between the two characters is palpable. I would normally feel uncomfortable with that chemistry and the fact that they are employee and employer - except that Anne is Jakes ONLY employee. Ha, for some reason, that made it easier. As always, I do wish it would have been a teensy bit longer - but novellas are called such for a reason, right?
