The Quick and Dirty: An inter-office email brings fantasies to life between an employee and her boss… who she previously had a one-night stand with. 🙈

Sarah is introduced to Beckett on St. Patrick’s Day by a mutual friend and the evening ends with them in bed together. Sarah, a recent cancer survivor, is rejuvenated by her experience with Beckett but thinks of it as nothing more than a spectacular night.  When she and a co-worker exchange e-mails about fantasies and the head honcho reads it, she’s promptly called up to meet him, only to realize the new owner of the company is none other than Beckett. Enter a contract à la 50 Shades and a lot of 🔥 between the two. Neither Beckett nor Sarah wanted anything more than a bit of fun until they both catch feelings and neither know what to do. It’s a HEA so you know they end up together but seeing the wrap up was still fun!

This book is the second in a stand alone series and while it was quick and overall fun read, I did have some qualms. While I know the story was meant to be quick and fun, I felt like the character development was overly light so I couldn’t really connect to the characters as I wanted. There were several moments that felt inorganic, cliché or worse, a bit awkward, and transitions between scenes didn’t flow as well as they did in the last book. It all just felt very rushed and I found myself disappointed. I still love the authors and their work overall, this one just wasn’t my favorite. 

A new and steamy Romantic Comedy from USA Today Bestselling Author MJ Fields and International Bestselling author Jessica Ruben

Minding my own business on St. Patrick’s Day —with a beer in my hand and Shamrock panties beneath my skirt— I sat on a sticky barstool next to my best friend.
I was expecting to chat about my latest read, but she had other plans…
A “surprise” introduction to a tall, tatted, and utterly irresistible Irishman.
One night stands were totally not me, like, not at all, until she reminded me that it was time to stop spreading pages and begin spreading… yeah, she went there.
And guess what? I took her advice.
One crazy and wild night later, my libido was officially jumpstarted.
Since then, everything has changed for the better- or so I thought.
I had a great new job and my own cozy apartment.
What I didn’t expect?
That same irresistible Irishman to become my new boss.
