Can't Get Enough
He's everything she despises--a babe magnet with more notches on his belt than a millipede has legs.
And he thinks his coworker is wound so tightly she irons her underwear at night.
Two people couldn't be further apart.
But when Jack Brook and Claire Marsden get stuck in a sweltering elevator one afternoon, it's a different story. By the time they're rescued, Jack and Claire...more
Claire's always coloured within the lines (Sarah Mayberry's words), and done things right to the tee. So when she finds herself trapped in an elevator with Jack, the office playboy, it was either talk to him or succumb to her fear of small spaces. Turned out though, that she ended up succumbing to something else: rather, someone else. Namely, Jack.

All while every encounter of them was never without horniness from both part. I understood the daddy issue for her but still this was too much for me.
Liked this much more than I thought I would, because I haven't been lucky when it comes to Harlequin Blazes, but now I'm very tempted to get more by Sarah Mayberry this instant. I really liked both Jack and Claire, which surprised me, because from the blurb I wasn't expecting to like Claire all that much. (While I'm a sucker for the whole 'get a bit loose' plot I prefer it much mor ...more
