I had such high hopes for today - a new promotion, my dream career - and then it all went to hell. But it’s hard to care right now, with a beautiful stranger’s hands and mouth leading me straight to heaven... The last thing Max expects in an elevator is a beautiful woman with no interest in his money. After a brief but sizzling encounter, he’s even more surprised when she runs out on him. But then she appears in his office as his new temporary assistant, and this time he’s keeping her close, even if he has to tie her down, and that idea has all kinds of possibilities. Shay knows better than to trust sharp-suited money men, but she can’t deny the...fringe benefits...of working with Max Lupin. This job is the gateway to her dream career, but experience has taught her she’ll never be enough to make a man stay. Can a billionaire and a broke nobody really have a shot at forever, or is this fling, like the job, just temporary? Dominant alpha men, sweet, strong women, and lots of very hot and dirty shenanigans. No cheating or cliffhangers and a guaranteed happy ever after, all in a short, intense read which is sure to raise your body temperature. If this sounds like your happy place, scroll up now and click that button! Then lock the door and grab a glass of wine (or ice water)! It's about to get hot in here! All my books are standalones and can be read in any order, but you may get more out of each story if you read them in the order of publication, due to previous couples sometimes being mentioned in later books.
