Kylie discovers that she likes to take charge in the bedroom as well as the board room.
Struggling to keep her magazine company in business and recovering from a recent breakup, she feels high strung. And on top of that, she can’t stop staring at Nick, her magazine’s graphic designer. With the two of them left alone one night at the office, she decides to find out just how well he can take directions.
I always enjoy stories where there’s a woman who’s not just a boss but a BOSS and that’s what we have with Kylie in this novella. She’s a woman who knows exactly what she wants professionally in staring a magazine, personally in kicking her ex to the curb and romantically when she decides that it may be interesting to see what may happen with a sexy graphic designer that works for her.
As the one at the helm, she has to motivate everyone, get status updates from all the key people and it’s during one of those meetings when her eye catches on this one guy in the room. Then, when deadines are fast approaching and she can’t bring herself to make anyone stay to help her close out the latest issue, she finds herself at the office late at night, alone ,or so she thinks. Previously mentioned graphic designer pops his head in, and well, he offers to help her, yet neither is overt on what help they are talking about
What happens from there is a very quick and expected bit of hot and steaming something or other. Kylie is the boss of course which makes this situation complicated and the fact that she’s realizing as well that maybe she’s not just a boss in the office makes this encounter that much hotter.
She tells him what she wants, he’s shy at first and then seems fully on board with what she’s asking and then all bets are off. The question that we beg however is what does this mean for the office and this duo moving forward and how will it complicate things?
Being that this is a novella, it’s one of many questions that we don’t have to stress about having answers to – so i think that we can leave ourselves to wonder. What i can say though is that this gets me back on board with Ms Sterling and the other stories that i’ve read that i’ve enjoyed!
