He has hired an old friend of his, Abel Hernandez, as his new CFO of Hartford Industries. It will be Amy’s job to help Abel to acclimate to his new surroundings.
Abel is everything Tom Hartford is not, uninhibited, passionate, fun loving. And it takes all of two days for the chem ...more
This book was weird. SO SO very weird. These characters spoke like dirty Jane Austin throwbacks. Case in point...
"Hartford shot him an impatient look. “Yes, expected of philanderers and immoral thieves and treacherous blaggards. People who are beyond the pale.”
There was also like ZERO plot and character development and the ending was WTF? I don't even know what else to say. Oh, I do. On a positive note, the sex was hot.
If you love your sex hot, fast, and plentiful, then this steamy menage novella is one to grab. Light on the character development but plenty of action to go around, you can get your quickie on with this smoking story.
Good girl with a naughty mind along with current her boss and new boss along with some MMF action, this book leaves you wondering how to get a job like that! HA.
Super hot, but very short. This is my first book by Ms. Stei ...more
Please note that this Novella was once originally published in the"Filthy & Rich" box set.
Amy is Hartford personal assistant and with that there has only been business between them. Hartford I would say is a hard, straitlaced kind of guy. Amy is to meet Abel to show him around the work area. Abel is totally different from Hartford in that he is carefree, outgoing and a rule breaker. Abel and Amy have a instant at ...more
I'm a big fan of the author but not so much of her earlier menage stories. Her earlier menage stories seemed populated by people unsure of their sexual desires and seemingly ether coerced or apologetic about their sexuality. Not so with Amy, Abel, and Hartford.

Abel is opposite of Tom in every way- fun loving, care free, and a lusty, hot blooded male. The chemistry is off the charts between he and Amy. They try to fight it, but after a couple of days they give in to their passion.
Tom finds out ...more
The premise of this book seemed good, like, oh, I want to read this and get my jollies. Unfortunately, it's more like the boring, lacking, shallow playback of an erotic tale. Nothing about this story was sexy. It was like fast forwarding through all the sexy bits just to get the main sexy bit--which I didn't care enough about to read. I stopped reading this book about 20 pages in, and I only got that far because I skipped ahead to see i ...more
My only complaint was that the book felt unfinished. I wanted to read more about how they made it work especially with all three working together. Did they keep their relationship a secret or did they let it out in the open (in which case how did others react)? How did things work long term?

Let me start by saying that this wasn't a bad story, I did like some parts of it, but it just wasn't for me. I really enjoy erotica stories, but it has to have an interesting storyline, at least in my opinion. The plot in this story confused me. I didn't understand how someone could go from the guy described in the synopsis, to the unyielding and unbearable boss described in the book, to the guy who the other characters were saying he was, when all I saw was the jerk of a boss. I ...more
Normally, I avoid billionaire heroes like the plague, but I adore Stein and was pleased to learn that the billionaire angle is a pretty minor detail here.
Amy is a personal assistant to Hartford, who rules with an iron fist. He's inscrutable--a real stone wall. When Amy has a tryst with Abel--Hartford's CEO and longtime ...more
Hartford is a class A jerk to work for and of course he calls in his executive admin to work on a weekend to show the new CFO around. Abel and Hartford go way back and he knows what a tubesteak he can be. So, first thing when Amy gets on the elevator with Abel he starts in on her and these two just about burn down the building. His desk, the chair, the floor, I lost track seriously. But they were roma ...more
Not Safe For Work is a quick read, that started off very hot and sexy. Amy Elliot never dreamed she would be instantly attracted to the new CFO, Abel Gonzalez. He’s a close and long-time friend to Thomas Hardington, her grumpy billionaire boss whose exacting needs in business make him a brilliant businessman but not easy to like.
The chemistry between Amy and Abel are electrifying and they can not resist playing with fire in the workplace which gets Amy into hot wat ...more
This book is the first book of Charlotte Stein’s that I have read. Because of this, I didn’t know what to expect.
Not safe for work is a steamy taboo novella. It is fast paced and full of steamy moments. I struggled to concentrate on this story. I don’t know if it is because I am in a bit of a book funk lately or because I was over tired (I read this book at 4am). There were a handful of times that I was left slightly confused. When I started this novella, it felt like I had missed a huge chunk ...more
Amy is the personal assistant to the straitlaced and rule bound Thomas Hartford. She follows all his rules, some of which are a little quirky: don’t use the word ‘but’, plus the usual office ones: women wear suits, stockings (not pantyhose), and high heels. Then she is asked to show around a new employee, Abel Hernandez, and he drops hints that he knows Hartford very well.
The two have an instant sexual attraction and end up havi ...more
This is a novella, short enough that I didn’t have time to make notes, write down impressions as I went along. On the other hand, it was short enough to remember. The one thing that really anno ...more
"I want to read more from this author" that was my first thought when I was finished with this novella. I don't know how it is that I simultaneously feels like I read the best romantic story and the filthiest story ever made. But that's how I feel after reading this novella, the love scenes are insanely hot but also truly romantic. The way she writes makes it seem so intimate and sweet even i ...more
Which honestly? I'd say this is more erotica than erotic romance.
Then also? I liked "Make Me" by Charlotte Stein so much more.
So ... re: whoever that reviewer was [which honestly I can't remember] a) the other books she was comparing this one to were holy shit THAT BAD ... and/or boy is she in for a serious treat when she disco ...more
Honestly, I did not like this book. The characters really spoke to each other in odd language. The relationship happened super quick - obviously had to because it was a novella, but then, I did not connect really with any of the characters. And, all of a sudden the men who have been friends forever are going to have some sort of weird relationship? It just did not do it for me. Normally I like ménage stories, but they still have to have some sort ...more
