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.

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 ...more

”I have a lot of types.”

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 ...more
