Wow! This a debut novella from author Lisa Fulham. You wouldn't know it by reading this. The story development is great and you get a feel for the characters quickly. No overly damaged or broken characters either. Just two people who are attracted to each other and want to act on it but don't initially because of their working relationship.

The story is told from both characters POV; which I personally love. I like being able to see the story unfold from both sides of the coin, so to speak.

I have had a slight break in my reading recently, so little time, but a novella I can fit in with pleasure ... lots of pleasure!

I really enjoyed this story, the writing was brilliant, the story well paced, the chemistry between Lucy and Blake jumped from every page.

I've read a lot of new adult and erotic novels and at times these can be repetitive, the language a little cringeworthy and the sex can lack passion .... NON OF THAT HERE!!

The love scenes in this story are highly erotic, very sensual

Business with Pleasure

I am so shocked that this is the debut work of this author as the quality of the writing matched that of more established writers. The main characters were just right in my opinion both beautiful and with wonderful fleshed out characters but "real" not overly melodramatic and completely unobtainable.

Whenever an author can bring me plot, characters and world building in a novella that I feel as satisfied as I would off from reading a longer book then I feel that speaks to th

A quick, steamy read which will leave you craving sensual silken nylons, men in well-fitted suits and lustful romps with forbidden fruit...the boss!

The characters are well-developed and the scenes descriptive, without bogging the reader down with unnecessary details. The story flowed nicely and I enjoyed the author's writing style.

For a debut novella, Ms. Fulham has exceeded all expectations and is an author to look out for. Can't wait for what she comes up with next.

Let me first say, I love Lisa. She's a lovely lady and great fun. She's also a very skilled storyteller, descriptive in her imagery of the places that Lucy visits on her trip to a point, where I wanted to jump on my own train and visit.

My own issue with this book (and it is my issue, but this is my review) is that it was a lot more romantic than what I expected. Some of the language from Blake's POV didn't ring true to me, as a true male perspective, lots of longing looks and he felt st

This book is a sexy and hot read with elements of beautiful romantic tenderness in it as well. It takes you into a tale of mutual attraction between two work colleagues and the dilemma of whether or not to act on their feelings and desires for each other, especially being between a Boss and his PA.

The Author captures you with her brilliant descriptive writing style – and by the end of the novel couldn’t believe that this was her first novel, she is very talented! I loved the way storyline unfold

I love how this story is told from both characters POV. It's refreshing to have a woman in the story who is strong & not needy. I wish there was more. I would have liked to see this develop.

I loved this story from the beginning. The synopsis hooked me. I always enjoy a shorter read without the "will they?" or "won't they?" I will assure you that even though it is a shorter story in length, it does not lack hot, descriptive, and steamy sex. Being an avid reader and appreciator for HEA and fictional men, Ms. Fulham carved out a hot businessman, Blake Casey... and she did an outstanding job. He's everything a woman wants, intelligent, driven, stunning, and a bit dominant in the ...more

There is not one thing about this novella that I did not like. It is hard to believe that this is the author's first attempt in publishing her writings. Even though it is a novella there is great character development and as the reader you feel that you have a good understanding of who Lucy and Blake are from the start.

I once read that erotica as a genre is difficult to define. You can't say it is erotica just because it is a story with explicit sex. Nor is erotica only about sex. Today

I absolutely thoroughly enjoyed this story !!

From the start I could sense the attraction and lust that was rolling from the pages between the two characters. The anticipation of where the story would develop had me riveted and the authors use of descriptive language just pulled me right into the fantasy of the book.
I wanted to be Lucy , I wanted the situation she found herself in to be a realistic one , I wanted my very own Blake to sweep me off my feet!!

The only disappointment I had was in t

Why didn't I experience tradeshow trips like this when I was a marketing manager?! I would have never left the field. :)

I really enjoyed this smartly written, spicy debut novella from the author. I don't usually read short stories but I must say that from the first few pages, I was hooked. Fulham sets the tone early on with a train ride that will leave many American readers contemplating a one-way ticket booking with AmTrak (provided one Mr. Blake Casey were to join them).

The author does a nice

This was a steamy and electrifying read. Blake and Lucy give way to their wild pleasures and don't disappoint. Lucy was a sexy yet sweetly composed woman longing for her finger licking good hot boss, Blake. The secretly kept chemistry these two explore upon make way for a deliciously mind boggling sexcapade. There were a few additions to the story which made me swoon and smile like an idiot. Lucy wasn't just a wanton creature. She provided a few entertaining points to this tale. Blake was a well ...more

Wow! This was everything I'd hoped for when I read the description. Lisa Fulham did not disappoint with this story.
I fell in love with Blake - smoking hot, king of his castle and clad in expensive suits. What more could a girl ask for? He was funny, caring and a real man in the bedroom.
Lucy, his sweet, innocent PA turned out to be a firecracker in the bedroom and I'm envious of the weekend she shared with Blake.
Lisa's writing style is brilliant: witty, sarcastic and exactly what I like to read.

What a HOT HOT HOT read!!

I'd been looking forward to reading this book for a while, and I must say it certainly didn't disappoint!

I was instantly connected with the characters, and that connection stayed throughout all of the story, which really isn't easy to achieve when it's a short one like this!
There is nothing I would change, it was honestly perfect for me. It had everything that not all 'novellas' can pull off; backstory, great personalities, brilliant plot and did I mention hot?

Short and very sexy read! Lucy has been Blake's PA for 6 months and works hard to keep her attraction to him buried. All she can think about at work is him bending her over his desk! She's surprised but happy when he includes her on an out-of-town convention. It turns out Blake has been attracted to Lucy as well, and they have a no-strings erotic weekend in between work obligations. I wouldn't mind having a boss like Blake!

Oh my! What a hot, erotic read this was! If this was one of a long line of books from the author I'd still be impressed, but considering this is a debut novel it's nothing short of stunning!

Beautifully written characters in magnificent settings that one has no trouble picturing thanks to the skill of the author.

Believable, engaging and thoroughly arousing! No less than 5* and highly recommended!

I really, really loved this. Its totally smexy. Blake is definitely book-boyfriend material. Although I get the appeal of a good looking man in a suit. I've never been crazy about suit-porn. But I think it's growing on me, I dig Mr. Casey in his.

Written well and very enjoyable. Likeable characters. Nicely detailed. Lusty, sexy and sweet. I recommend this weekend fling!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were interesting and believable and there are some wonderful touches, I have to admit to chuckling at the "metre high club". I look forward to reading more.
