Every morning, Alexandra drinks in the sexy vision of Mr. Buff through his office window across the alleyway. He takes his workouts seriously, and Alexandra never misses the opportunity to see him return half-naked, sweaty and pumped, to his office suite to shower.

But when Alexandra bumps into Mr. Buff, aka Andrew Carter, at a club, things go from visual to physical. Turn

One very hot and very erotic read that’s guaranteed to leave you wanting more! Excellent story, characters, setting and all around everything that makes for a satisfying read all around.



Alex is a beautiful and intelligent woman that was recently deceived by someone she thought loved and cared for her. Some months have passed and she has found some very yummy eye candy that she calls Mr. Buff. Coming to know his daily routine, she watches him loyally, daily, never missing a beat and constantly ha

Mr Buff by Milly Tiaden
Alex works in a very busy high flying business with Andrew as her boss.
Alex goes to dinner with her boyfriend at the time and then brakes up with him because he’s a total dick. I loved this bit in book so much I had to quote it.
Jack “What the hell are you talking about?” she blurted in a whisper. “I don’t need to lose weight. The doctor says I’m as healthy as any other thirty-something. I’m happy the way I am.” Jack glared at her. “Well, I’m not happy and I’m the one wh

This review can also be found on my blog.

For men there’s a little blue pill. And what about us? I don’t believe in self medication so luckily this uber-sexy, scorching (and I mean SCORCHING) hot novella does the trick and hits all the right spots. Ladies, get your toys, lotions, gels, towels, the whole enchilada because you’re going to need it! This was my first read by this author, but there’s no way I’m going to miss out on anything else she writes. Especially if they all have a sexy plot that

DNF. Ridiculous. Too many stupid twists.
Love Milly Taiden.. just not this rubbish.

Alexandra has the best job ever. What does she do? I don’t know, it was some sort of accounting type job. That’s not why it’s the best. Her office location makes it the best. Because right across the way she can see right into the office of one Mr. Buff. And Mr. Buff likes to take a shower every day and walk around with his shirt off sometimes. And lately, Mr. Buff has noticed Alexandra staring, and they’ve begun waving.

And Mr Buff notices Alexandra, too.

My Review:
Simply put, this is one hot little erotica. I'll admit, it's not real heavy on story, but I didn't feel like it was lacking, and I am telling you...the erotic part of this erotica is good and sexy and HOT!

The set-up for this book is like every girl's fantasy. Imagine....every morning you get to watch a HOT guy get dressed after his workout. What a perfect way to start the day! This is how Alex starts her work days and she's pretty pleased with the fact, especially in view of the fact t

Mr Buff is the name that Alexandra has named the hunky guy in the office in the building

across from hers. Every morning she watches him come in his office take off his sweaty clothes

and go and take a shower. But ever since her last relationship where her ex played

a number on her self confidence will she be able to trust?

Andrew has been attracted to Alexandra from the moment he saw her in her office. When he

sees her at a local club he decides that now is the time to make his move.

Wow... I don't usually read erotica but this story definitely changed my mind about that. I want a Mr. Buff of my own. who doesn't? It's fast paced and beautifully written. You won't get bored but it will leave you panting for more.

So hot! The sex scenes in Mr. Buff sizzle, and I loved watching Alexandra and Andrew's budding relationship grow into something beautiful. I'm very much looking forward to the sequel!

loved this book. Keeps your attention from page 1. I started with the thought of a suspense novel and was not let down. We all have that moment when you get the boyfriend that works on your pride. Good thing for Alex is she has a kickass cousin that always has her back. So when Alex meets her crush and they get together the fun begins. This story is awesome and I do love a Sexy hard working man so Andrew is definitely candy. You willenjoy this and want more while screaming what the heck just hap ...more

Oh My Goodness. How to review this book. 50% sex & 50% very good crazy story.
Not enough adjectives to describe this sex fuelled humorous farce.
Loved the actual story. It runs the gamut from the serious – murder, attempted murder, fraud, kidnapping, serial sex killers to the absolute most slapstick series of events featuring deranged, cannot accept NO, ex-girlfriends and ex-boyfriends. Moose accidents, pipe bombs and more.
What happens in the state park was so crazy funny.

3.5 STARS

The book description provides a pretty thorough summary of the story so I won't regurgitate it. Hence, here are my thoughts on Mr. Buff:

This is the second work of Ms. Angel that I've read & it's no surprise that I love her voice & writing style.

Alex and Andrew (Mr. Buff) were two people with an obvious and intense physical attraction to one another. Andrew was delicious and sexy as sin. Oh yes, and did I mention that he's a dominant in bed? Well, he is and you know what that mea

A short but seriously erotic read, Mr. Buff is one that you do not want to miss. Alexandra is a heroine all women can relate to. How many times have we noticed that seriously hot man across a crowded train, restaurant, or even through a window and fantasized about what if? Don’t lie, you know you have. Just like you know if you ever had the opportunity to speak and he showed a corresponding interest, you’d be on him like white on rice.

Alex has fantasized about the business man in the office buil

An office with a sPECtacular view! Book 1 in the Sizzling Encounters series ~ Loved this story! Humor and hot encounters await you in this short story! Caution: you may end up squirming in your seat wish you were Alex, you may not want to read this at your desk during your lunch break - you may end up having to go home early ;) And now a bit about the story...

Alexandra Berte is a payroll manager in high rise office building with a wall of windows. She has one of the best views, across the street

You'd think breaking up would be the worst thing and be enough to go through, right? Alexandra knew he was a jerk, it still hurt. Now she was going to do her job and enjoy the perk of the hottie view in the window of the building across the way. Shirtless view every morning when he walked around his office after he'd showered. Nice. She'd go back to work on payroll and the rest of her job she likes and wasn't too stressful. That is until she found a huge discrepancy someone had made. Millions of ...more

No one writes erotic romance like April Angel; but her stories are also filled with lovable, enchanting and often broken characters too!
In Mr. Buff we meet Alexandra; a woman who once oozed self confidence until the betrayal of her cheating partner, and Andrew; a man looking for forever, but unable to make the first move on a woman he believes is already taken.
So have a fire extinguisher at the ready, because when they finally do let down their defenses, the chemistry between this couple is a b

Mr. Buff by April Angel is the first book in her Sizzling Encounters series. Alexandra, a business professional, enjoys watching Andrew in his office across the alley. After watching each other for awhile, Andrew approaches Alexandra at a club and a hot romance follows.

Mr. Buff is a novella, just the type of story I love to read during lunch breaks, etc. I really enjoy April's writing style and absolutely loved this book. This is a keeper for me and have read several times since buying the book

I can't believe that I hadn't wrote my review for this book yet.

I wish I could watch Mr. Buff everyday at work and watch him without any clothes and see him coming out of the shower all wet. I want a man to send me flowers and to be so into me. Just looking one time at me and knowing I am all he sees. I need to go take a cold shower after I read this.

Well I will see you later because I will be going and reading it again!

HOT, HOT, HOT!!!

This book is a short HOT read! It was great.

I love short stories that are able to tell a story and make you forget you are readinga short story.

This is the story of two office workers who fall in lust with one another from across building's through the windows. Until a chance encounter makes them so much more.

Beware of setting your kindle of fire after reading this one

Amazing, enjoyable & interesting erotica romance story. The book had some BDSM (minor) elements. Looking forward to reading more from the author (enjoyed some dialog & the greeting card words that were on the flowers)

Mr Buff is the latest book from Milly Taiden. It follows Alexandra & Andrew of their wild ride to happily ever after.

Alexandra is working as a temp doing accounting & HR work & she really enjoys the view out her window. The window that overlooks the office of the man she calls Mr Buff. Alex can't resist watching for Mr Buff to get to his office after his workout. It's almost the best part of her day. But she doesn't realize that Mr Buff enjoys the view just as much.

Deceptively innocent before the circus moves in. I completely enjoyed this literary romp through love story! Alex is a strong female character, who is like many women in many ways. When she was mentally beat down by a dude, she took a stand for herself and got stronger. I laughed at the window romance, and you could feel the heat amping up when Alex and Andrew finally get their poop in a group! Then, when you think it's all good, all of those strings that were laid out in the background of the f ...more

Alex AKA Alexandra has finally turfed out the odious ex but not before he did a hatchet job on her self esteem. Her high point daily is watching the hottie in the adjacent building doing his fitness routine. But when a night with friends leads her directly to Mr Buff Aka Andrew Carter, her lovelife perks up.

Andrew is over superficial relationships. He wants something permanent and meaningful. His desire seems to come to life when the cutie he has been eyeing ends up in his club. After a tres hot

Ok I think I've been reading too many of the shifters books of Ms. Taiden. I kept waiting for Andrew to shift or his pack members to arrive, etc. And I kept expecting that the book will end here or there...only for have something else come up again that delays the HEA.

Alex and Andrew have been ogling at each other from their respective buildings. It makes you wonder why no else can see them doing their antics. Alex has been deeply hurt but gives Andrew a chance. Despite knowing that of Alex, I c

First, Alexandra gets dumped by a jerk.
Said jerk flattens Alexandra's confidence with some snide comments.
But things lighten up when Alex gets to play eye tag with the hottie in the office across from hers.
The story gets even better when Alex meets her hottie, a.k.a. Mr. Buff, a.k.a. Andrew in person.
The attraction is extremely mutual.
The sexual tension is intense.
How could Alex resist Mr. Buff?
She can't.

The tides turn for Alex when she discovers a huge financial discrepancy at work.

LOVED! Ok, I read the original and then this revised.. expanded.. re-release version and it is so much more than the original. More? More what? More everything...from story to heat to who done it. I enjoyed it so much more. There were several events that just kept me on the edge of my seat going what the heck. Alexandra and Andrew eye each other from afar for a while. She knows who she is but she does not know him. Only that she sees him shirtless every morning and drools over him. After her ex ...more

This book starts off great (after the breakup scene that it) - hot, hunky man that the newly single Alex is lusting after from afar suddenly becomes accessible after a night in the club. Loved the steamy scenes with a definite side of dominance! Then it the mystery part of the story sort of took over and veered into a place I was definitely NOT expecting. The hot and steamy romance took a sharp turn into a kooky comedy of errors with a murder plot. I would have rather had the hot romance than th ...more

I read the original so was really excited to see where she went with this new expanded edition. She did a great job with it, that’s for sure. Alexandra has been watching the view out of her window and into the window in the building across from her. Boy, was that a sight to see. He was so sexy but he was safe because she would never get to meet him. Until the night that she did meet him. This book is full of hot sex and also has some nice adventure to go along with it. This was a really good boo
