I hate Max Davis.

I hate his cocky, overconfident smirk and the way every woman in the office drools over him. I hate the irresistible way he fills out his suit and his manwhore ways. I hate his tempting touch and the way he makes me want to break all the rules. His Clark Kent Glasses, his cheesy sense of humor, his animalistic desire to have me—on my desk, against the fili

I should warn you, before you start to read this latest book from Lola Darling I would suggest that you read it while sitting an ice cold bath. Because let me tell ya, you're going to get real hot real fast. I swear I overheated so many times that I lost count, but it was so worth it.

Chloe MacIntyre is woman on a mission. She's smart, gorgeous, driven to succeed. Her whole life is her career and everything else will just have to take a back seat. She's on track to be partner one day, a goal that

OMG! OMG! OMG! I am in love with this book and Max!! I thought I was going to read just a few chapters to get started before going to sleep but the next thing I know its 3am and I can’t put it down until it’s finished!!
If you love a steamy hot office romance this book is a great choice. Chloe and Max are two attorneys thrown together to work a case. Max is drawn to her sexy librarian look and Chloe views Max as the office man-whore. Chloe is a no nonsense kind of woman who has one focus and tha
*Amazon US*Amazon UK*

Chloe is trying to work her way up to partner in the law firm where she currently works. But in order to do that, work needs to be her only focus. Not friends, or going out, and certainly not men. But when Max get assigned to a case she's currently working she starts to realize just how much she's been missing out on. Max is the playboy of the office, the one that takes that no fraternization policy and stomps on it. Certainly not someone she should get involved

Confession: I totally picked up Off Limits due to the cover because—let’s be honest—it’s all kinds of hot! It didn’t hurt that the blurb sounded good as well. An enemies-to-lovers forbidden office romance with rival co-workers? Sign me up!

Off Limits is an enjoyable book, but it had the potential to be even better. On the plus side, I have no patience for a ton of save the drama for your mama “problems,” and this story successfully avoids them for the most part. Chloe has some trust issu

“What’s your favorite, then?” Shit, I immediately think, the moment the words are out of my mouth. Why did I just ask him that?

He pauses for a moment, humming softly as though he’s pondering the question. “Bitchy.”

Holy Hotness!!! Alright, so this is the sexy office romance between two litigation lawyers that will leave you panting and bothered for days … I object! NOT :) :)

Chloe is a workaholic. She is independent, smart, driven, and a hard worker. But she also has quite a sex appeal that is hard for men to resist. Chloe is determined to build a life and future that is better than her mom’s. No one and nothing will get in her way. All was going according to plan until Chloe was assigned to a high profile

Off Limits is a hot new read by Lola Darling. Lola has been on my radar since The Hotel serial so, when I saw that she had written a new book, I had to pick this one up and read it. Off Limits is about two lawyers who work together on a case while trying to keep their hands off each other.

Chloe has never had a good perception of Max because of the rumors around the office. But when they start working together she begins to see Max in a different light. Though, it takes a lot of convincing from M

***ARC Provided by Social Butterfly PR***

Max and Chloe have passion, humor and an amazing connection. What they also have is a respect for the job the other does and a respect for each other on a professional level, although Max thinks more highly of her than Chloe does of him.

Max has an office reputation as one of, you know, "those" guys who have dipped their pens in all the ink in the office, so of course Chloe wants nothing to do with him. And, inevitably, when there is someone in the office
I LOVE me a steamy office romance, and OFF LIMITS took sexual tension and flirtatious banter to the next level! If you want a healthy dose of passionate litigator love...OFF LIMITS is the next read for you! Get ready romance junkies...Max Davis will be one hell of a contender in the race for book boyfriend of the year!

"My preparation - and my follow-through, I might add - are just fine."

She lifts a single eyebrow over the rim of her glasses. "Forgive me if I don't take your word for it."

I was honored to have the opportunity to read an ARC of Off Limits. Let me just say anything written by Lola Darling is always at least three things. Those being, fun, beautifully written and damn sexy. She has went and done it again.

Chloe and Max's story was so much fun to read. I love Chloe's take charge attitude at work. She is determined to have the best life possible no matter how hard she has to work for it. Of course then the cocky and oh so sexy Max has to invade her space.

OK, I totally admit that it was the cover that first grabbed my attention about this book. Look at it! OMG, just look at it! *wipes drool*.

You won't possibly want to miss this book.


It's a hot, off-limits, contagious steamy love story.

A successful woman who lives for her career, meets her match but with a sluty reputation and an ego the size of a city.

Max Davis is the last man Chloe wants to work with. But since her boss Paul paired them together, she doesn't have so much of a choice.

Max is known for his office affairs or so people want to believe. And she has to fight her attraction to him if she wants t

Off Limits is a steamy office romance filled with sexually charged bantering and heartfelt emotions. I couldn't get enough of Max and Chloe, their flirtation is off the wall crazy.

In ones eternal strive for success it's too easy to put aside life, ask Chloe MacIntyre. She's spent her adulthood becoming a successful litigator.

Chloe and Max

This was my first book by this very talented author. I've had her debut novel teach me on my TBR list for some time and after reading this novel it's been moved up to my "got to read this right meow" list. I loved her writing style and the build to all the good hot yummy parts. This one had a nice slow burn feel to it and I was just lost in the sexual tension and chemistry between Max and Chloe.

Max was all things delicious. I was just eating him up with a spoon. He was cocky, smart

My barometer of whether I enjoyed a book is if I want to buy things mentioned in the book when I get to the end.

And I so desperately want a red bra, not sure about the thong though...I find that they chafe.

She injects them with such realness that you wish they actually were real so you could be their friends. Chloe is what I love in a female lead. Intelligent. Strong. Holds her own. She's insecure, as most of us which only endears her to me more. But that insecurity causes her to push people away, incl

Strong characters, very likeable and relatable.

I love the message of this book and this is one of the things I like to see on the books I read. I want all the steamy hot scenes but I also like to read a story, to get to know the characters and their struggles outside the bedroom and this book has it all.

So if you are like me and like a good office romp with a dose of reality this is the book for you.
