This was a good, quick read with likable characters, but the basic premise was very similar to another N.J. Walters's story, Unmasking Kelly: H/h have known (and secretly lusted after) each other for some time, he's her boss so he doesn't feel comfortable attempting anything romantic with her, she waits for a sign from him to show her he's interested, until she decides enough is enough and does something that finally sets things in motion. Oh, and let's not forget the rushed ending, when he prop ...more

Recommends it for: Fans of hot quick reads
Okay, this is how you do an EC 'Quickie'. I realize these are 85% about the sex, but N.J. Walters managed to throw in enough background details about the H/h to give me a good idea about what makes them tick, and I ended up caring for them.

J.T.'s a delectable, studly horse rancher from West Texas, Tori's the likable, chubby housekeeper who's worked for (and secretly lusted for) him for over a year. But she can't take it anymore--J.T. shows absolutely no sign of being interested in her, and the
4 stars – Contemporary Romance/Erotica

An alpha cowboy and a sweet ranch housekeeper with lots of pent up sexual frustration from a year of wanting and loving each other in secret + West Texas heat + naughty barn tryst = a wickedly sexy, fun, quickie erotic treat!
For those readers that adore Alpha heroes, an unsure,but strong heroine with a BBW body, steamy sex, and HEA, than this book just might be for you.

This isn't a full length novel, and it never pretends to be... this is quite simply a romantic little romp at the unreachable dream, of being wanted and desired by the unattainable man.

Our heroine Victoria works for J.T. Courage and his brothers as a housekeeper, for over a year and a half, her feelings for JT have grown into full on love, but she fee
This is a great little short story. Tori works as the cook/housekeeper for a ranch. She loves her boss, J.T. but decides it's time to find a different job because he doesn't love her. She goes to tell him but he's not willing to let it go at that (view spoiler). Since the characters already had history the HEA at the end doesn't seem outrageous even given the shortness of the ...more

Okay, that was quick. Less than.. thirty minutes. Ha!

Victoria or Tori, is already prepared to leave. After working with J.T. for a year, she can't take it anymore. She's in love with him. But apparently he didn't even find her attractive. So now she's ready to catch the bus and go back home.

John Thomas or J. T., fall for Tori since the first time he saw her. But Tori's his employee. He don't want her to chose between her job and him, if she like him too. But seing Tori ready to go home, J. T.

hot story and definitely a quicky. I wanted to know more about Tory and JT when the story ended. My pet peeve is when the dirty talk doesn't quite match up with how i'm seeing the characters. I don't know much about JT, but I find it hard to picture a cowboy saying pussy and cunt. JMO

I really like the unrequited love thing between the couple. Since it's a quickies story, I expect that the scenes will get hot fast, and I'm not disappointed. Wish that this story is longer so I can savor more Tori's predicament, and how J.T. finally realizes his feelings for her.
