Charlotte “Charlie” Merriweather, 24, has pulled one over on her boss one too many times. Avery Banks, 29, has had enough of his untamable assistant’s pranks.

I liked Charlie in the first book, Play, and I wasn’t disappointed here. She’s fun and has a devious desire to chip away at the patriarchal power house in the corporate office environment. I wasn’t too sure about Avery in the first book, but he totally won me over in this one. His cool, controlled, and reserved businessman aura fa

If you like a quick and steamy enemies to lovers romance, with likeable characters, a shit ton of tension - all of that in an office setting - then you should definitely check this one out. Just like the preceeding novel, Play, for that matter.

Lawson always writes pretty cool female MCs, imo. Capable girls, who’ve got their shit together - and who are going to figure it out by themselves even if they don’t - who don’t need to rely on some guy to sweep in and save them.
Charlie was sassy, funny,

My first book for 2018! Sooo... Our h is a sassy assistant in a bank who makes pranks with her boss thinking to even the scale a little bit. " My boss, ladies and gentlemen. The face an angel. The body of a god. The charm of venereal disease".

Our H is just okay for me. But he got points in my eyes when he says this "Because I don't believe in fucking one person when you're thinking about someone else". This line is for all those guys drowning themselves in women while professing to be in love wi

NSFW is enemies to lovers in an office setting, done well. Piper Lawson executes this trope with the electric pulse it needed to be brought back to life!

Charlotte/Charlie and Avery have worked together for the past couple of years. Him as the "boss" and her as the prank pulling assistant. There has always been a wall of animosity between them, but maybe that animosity is just hiding something else?

I honestly really enjoyed the tension between these two characters. It wasn't OTT, and it still man

Turns out this book is like that Color Me Badd song. This was a fun read, Charlie is great and funny, Avery is, well, Avery (but that isn't a bad thing honestly).

I don't have that much to say about it, except that if you are looking for a steamy office romance then this might be right up your alley.

This book better be like that Color Me Badd song 'cause I am READY.

So heroine's been his assistant for two years. Character wise I'd describe her to be very sassy, modelesque, and her personality is what I would tag more suited "usually" to be marked as the crazy outgoing best friend of a heroine. She pushes his buttons constantly.

If you are an optimist, you can take his statement of "I don't screw one woman whilst thinking of another", as a mark of celibacy throughout the two years since they'd met. I personally don't believe he's had sex for a while, but I w

It was a good book, the heroine wasn't a doormat - the author kept her promise. As to the hero being not an asshat... well, I wouldn't call him an asshat, but he wasn't a good hero either. Of course in my opinion.

I work for a big company and maybe that's why office romances are not my favorite trope, especially when they write 'funny' pranks at work. Not that an office life is a boring one, but there are still some boarders you don't cross. So, the heroine's behavior was way too childish. She w

Sissy's Romance Book Review
'NSFW' by Piper Lawson is the story of Charlotte and Avery.
Avery is the boss and Charlotte is the assistant so this is a work related love story.
It was a fun filled batter with some hot tension between the two of them.
There is also of course their underline story of who they are and how they got to this point in their lives.
Enjoyed reading their story!

This is one of the hottest books I have ever read. It's certainly the best office romance I have ever read. These characters are portrayed like real employees doing actual work, and that makes them more real. In most other office romance books I've read, the office is just a backdrop and the boss's desk is just a prop for sexcapades. I rarely get invested in the characters of those novels because they are interchangeable with any other boss and employee from other books. Not so with Charlotte an ...more

~NSFW is now available on Amazon and in KU!~

Watching Avery Banks run a meeting was like porn.

His clipped tone. The impatient tap of his pen on the table. The way he’d shove his chair back when it took too long to get an answer.

It should’ve been unattractive.

It was a damned ballet.

The world premiere of 'ten reasons I want to f*ck my boss.'

His mouth.

His hands.

His voice.

His gaze.

His body…

I received a copy and voluntarily left a review.

There hasn't been a book by Piper Lawson that hasn't practically incinerated my kindle and left me with dreamy eyes over her newest fictional couple. Although Dylan and Alexis from Schooled will always be my favorite go to couple, Piper never fails to illicit a strong emotional response and bring her readers something new and fresh with each book whether it is part of a continued series or a story with characters we have never met before.

What's better than finding a great enemies/boss-employee to lovers story? Not much, me thinks.

This was a total winner. And it's coming from an author whom I haven't read yet, so it's a win-win! Love discovering great authors. Piper's quick wit and engaging characters had me hooked from page one with NSFW. Now I need to read book one. Shame on me for missing out.

Though this is part of a series, it can be read alone if this blurb jumps out at you like it did for me.

This book is HOT!!!

And I got the BIGGEST kick out of Charlie. I mean, I haven't enjoyed (or lived vicariously through) a heroine this much in a while. She sure had some cojones, and was an absolute riot to read!

But Piper did a FANTASTIC job of building up the attraction between Charlie and Avery. These enemies-to-lovers were put in some close-quarters situations, and holy moly, did the sparks fly!

The story was woven beautifully and the tit-for-tat between Charlie and Avery was peppered throughou

NSFW by Piper Lawson  
Proceed with caution.  Ms. Lawson knows what it means to deliver the burn.  Just ask Avery and Charlie.  NSFW is deliciously naughty with it's tempting battle of the sexes and it's hilariously entertaining characters.  War is on the agenda.  The winner is anyone guess, but the battle is as seductive as it gets.
 
 
Delirious Disquisitions
Pure fun, sexy times! This is the perfect light rom-com to read between heavier stuff. NSFW was the perfect blend of fun characters, humor, insane sexual chemistry, quippy dialogues, banter, hot office sex, and some sweet love/hate romance.

My boss, ladies and gentlemen. The face of an angel. The body of a god.
The charm of venereal disease.


I discovered Ms. Piper Lawson not long ago, and I fell in love with this author’s work. There’s a trademark humor that’s always on point, a sparkling sexual tension that lights up the page, and a heroine that is so well-drawn and dynamic and fierce that I just want to be her best friend. NSFW is an office romance that has all of these things.

Oooh! This was so cute!!! I think this is my 6th book by Piper Lawson and as it was expected it was so good! My favorite book by her was PLAY. I loved Max and Payton, mas I remember that I also loved Charlie 'cause she was so funny and unique. Imagine how happy I was when I found out she would have her own book.

It was so good to know more of Charlie. I loved her even more. She was so strong and peculiar, but in a way that draw us to her. I loved how funny she was witho

This was a hot office romance, with some funny moments and some surprisingly emotional parts which left me tearful.
NSFW is a stand-alone book, but I think it helps to read the companion book 'Play' first, to get to know the characters, and because that is a fun read too.
I have become a big fan of Piper Lawson's writing. Her books are easy to read, funny, emotional and have well rounded, likeable characters.

Very tricky plotline...

The heroine played pranks on her boss. And that can play out both ways...

She is either seen as an unprofessional, conceited and high and mighty lass who doesn't know what consequences her actions may have on the business as a whole and not only on the guy she wants revenge on OR not. ;-)
What I mean is, her actions are either fun (unlikely as it IS a bank and therefore heavily relies in word of mouth) or well, not.
Anyways, what bothered me was that she really seemed to not

I was super excited to get Charlotte's story after she charmed me completely in Play and this did not disappoint!

The chemistry between these two is palpable from the start and had me swooning throughout. I love the whole "hate to love you" vibes these two had and seeing that evolve into something more. Their banter always put a smile on my face a

A lovely, sexy, forbidden, enemies to lovers romance following Charlotte Merriweather as she relays her relationship with her boss Avery Banks, an executive banker who follows the rules and has zero sense of humour. Charlie though, is a bit of a prankster and after 2 years she's finally been caught in the act so to speak. The day that Avery fires Charlie is the day that their journey begins. It's also the day that Charlie comes into her own and faces her challenges head on. I loved Charlie, she ...more

Ok, so we got a glimpse of Charlie and Avery through Payton and Max’s story in PLAY and I immediately knew I wanted to read more about these characters. I’m so happy the reading gods heard my wish because Piper did not fail to deliver. This is not your typical hate turn to love story because the characters didn’t really hate each other...more like they subconsciously wanted to get noticed by the other but didn’t know how to go about doing it. The things they do and say to each other sometimes ma ...more
