Title: After Hours: A Babysitter Story
Author: Ava Sterling
Publisher/Year: Red Lace Publishing 7/8/17
Length: 17 Pages
Brooke loves her job. Where else could she make extra cash while spending her days eating ice cream and talking on the phone?
The only thing missing from her life is a confident, mature man–qualities severely lacking from anyone she’s recently dated.
She’s been house sitting for Mr. Hightower off and on for months and never thought of him as anything more than an employer, despite his toned physique and his bold outlook on life. He’s a baseball coach, used to giving orders and people following them.
In his living room finishing up a shift, she overhears him giving some of these…instructions. She closes her eyes and fantasizes about them in a much different context. Right there and then, she hatches a plan to make him hers.
OH how i have become a huge fan of these quick reads because they get right to the point without all the dramatic build up. As you guys saw in the previous story that i read by Ava Sterling, we had a leading lady who wasn’t quite satisfied with her life and relationship status. So that of course leads to trouble when you have a sexy female lead who knows what she wants.
In this story, Brooke is a house sitter – not so much a baby sitter which is possibly the best job ever for a college kid. She also has a boyfriend who she’s had over at the house since there’s nothing better than having an empty house to do what you want. In this case though, her boyfriend only wants to play video games while Brooke is trying to tease him into living out a fantasy. When that doesn’t happen, she notices that Mr Hightower, the man who’s house she’s watching is quite attractive. And takes matters into her own hands.
While you can imagine that this is going to be hot and steamy, you also have to acknowledge that he’s an older and more experienced guy, so there’s a bit of mystery that i’m not going to elaborate on for how things pan out. What i can say though is that our author does a great job of painting the picture in a way that draws you in, and keeps it on the right level of a college girl and her level of experience. So on that note…..
