Geoffrey always invents new problems in his office just to sneak a peek at Cole McCarthy, the chief maintenance engineer of the building.
“I have a problem.”
“And no one can fix it but me?” the sexy voice on the other line surmised.
Damn, it was that sarcasm again. What he wouldn’t give to fuck it right out of him.
“The light-bulb directly above my desk is burnt out. I want it fixed immediately. I have an important conference call at four o’clock which I need to prepare for. While you and your m

Melting! Sizzling Hot! 4.5 Stars

I've been swimming in a number of mediocre reads lately. This hit all the right spots. I was impressed with the humiliation/dirty talk kink. Mmmhmm...melts my butter.

And it's set in an office?! Bare-backing?!! Butt plugs?!!! I expected the twist but still giving two thumbs up!!

This hit a LOT of my FUCK YES buttons!!!

Just what the doctor ordered on a Sunday afternoon.

dirty talk
orgasm denial
a touch of humiliation
role playing

Yes indeedy! Cupcake liked this lil gem muchly. It even had a touch of snarky humor.

Cole and Geoffrey are having a bit of fun at the office. Work is so… overrated. Sometimes you need to spice things up.

“That’s it,” Cole said, the authoritative tone tempered slightly with lust. “Suck it like you mean it. Like the little bitch boy you pretend not to be.”

What a nice, kinky little short with a romantic twist at the end that I didn't see coming! I really enjoyed this one, even more impressively because it was so short. A sexy sexy read!

"When he had it soaked and could pump his hand in rhythm with his mouth, Cole started to thrust into his mouth.

“That’s it,” Cole said, the authoritative tone tempered slightly with lust. “Suck it like you mean it. Like the little bitch boy you pretend not to be.”

Jeesh, he sure is enjoying this. Then again, it had been a long time since Geoffrey had been this hard himself. The taunting way Cole talked nearly drove him to the edge. He reached down to unfasten his pants and release his cock.

I will admit this probably isn't my usual style. It seemed mostly like one long sex scene but I still felt like I really got to know the characters and really liked the story. It was hot

Damn, that was a hot short story with a perfect title. Loved the ending, which made the title even more appropriate and completely sweet. Like extra sweet whipped cream on top of a kink sundae.

Whoa, that was yummy! Snooping around on GR I stumbled upon the picture and the prompt letter for this story. Hot hotness, Batman!! That pic is lip smackin good and the story was smokin and seemed to fit the request very nicely.

Thank you, Dear Author, for this awesome story!

The photo that inspired this story was a little too porn-tastic for my tastes. As I was reading the story, I was a little disappointed at first that the author wrote the story just like the photo dictated - PWP (porn without plot). I was pleasantly surprised, however, at the ending of the story which immediately drew me back in. This is not my favorite photo but the author gave back more than just the photo to the readers.

Sometime you have to take matters into your own hands. Geoffrey has a thing for the head of maintenance, Cole, in the office building his company rents. Since maintenance issues aren’t always available when you need to see the person of your sexual fantasies sometimes you have to break a light bulb or two. Cole isn’t someone who would normally be sent to change a light bulb but he’s kind of figured out Geoffrey won’t be happy with just anyone, he likes to get the attention of the man in charge. ...more

This was basically one long sex scene but it had a nice little romantic twist.

Wow, didn't even suspect the twist that came, so you had me totally buying the scene!! Very hot and loved the notion of opposites attracting. The only problem I see is that I want to be a fly on that wall when Cole finally lets Geoff catch what will undoubtedly be some much needed relief;) Loved it - great job!!!

3.5* Really liked this one. It's well written, the characters are hot and I loved the twist towards the middle. The title is also very fitting and ties in nicely. I knocked off 1/2 a star because while I enjoy 'scenes' I'm not really into humiliation. I would have enjoyed it better without the name calling.
Yay for dirty talk!! Super sexy short story, love me some blue collar/white collar lovin ;-)

Recommends it for: M/M Lovers
I felt the book fulfilled my expectations and I was not disappointed. I did enjoy the book. I enjoyed it because it was well written and well edited. It was of equal quality to other books in the genre. The plot definitely pulled me in. The book would not have worked if it had a different time or place. The genre is M/M. Yes, it did fit the genre. The scope of the book is very small. It is fiction. It is fast paced with a romantic tone, told in the third person but present tense. There is no st ...more

Meh... hot story for a couple doin some role-playing. I don't care for the humiliation part of BDSM/role playing though, I kinda figured they might already be a couple, especially when Cole first started the scene... Just a hot little short scene from two lovers who work together and try to keep their relationship hot. It wasn't bad, just not my thing.

It's a hot-steamy-sexy-naughty-short reading !!!

I like the twist.
The picture really "inspiring"... ()

I don't even notice the role playing things until the last scene !!!
The butt plug things really hot and I need more story about Cole-Geoffrey !
Damn !! I really wanna know what happen next when they come home !!!

Oh my! This is really what I need from a smut book. Cole and Geoffrey are both naughty, who's the boss and who's in charge were totally different. I loved how Cole manhandled Geoffrey....
I never expected that they're a couples...instead of just a fling in the office.
Good pick. Enjoyed it!

Well written, but the plot wasn't something I was that interested in. Can't say much without giving away too much plot, but I didn't like the twist at the end, or rather didn't like that it was sprung on the reader so late.
