You should never mix business with pleasure… right?


Meet my brand-new intern, who also happens to be the man I hired to be my escort for the night.

He’s drop-dead gorgeous, with bedroom eyes and a body made for sin. I want him, but do I want him bad enough to risk everything, my job included?

Will sparks continue to fly between us in and out of the office, or was it

Intern: A Steamy Office Romance is my very first book by Harlow Layne. Steamy is exactly right because this is a hot, older woman, younger man romance that is sure to heat up the coldest of winter nights.

intern harlow layne

It’s been nearly two years since Sadie Frost has been with a man. Her divorce is now final and to celebrate, she has hired an escort for the night. But when the man shows up at her hotel room door, he’s hot, he’s sexy, and she knows him! He’s an intern at her company.

Insatiable and Adorable

These two have an interesting start, for certain. There is a story in all of the words but Tyson and Sadie are completely insatiable, as well as adorable. I love their escapades! Such hot and steamy goodness. There are some twists - family, medical, work, and age gap (she's 39 to his 25) related - that contribute to the tale.

I mostly listened to the audio which had CiCi Lockheart at the mic. She was nice to listen to.

Story: 4 stars
Narration: 3 stars

Office romance.
Reverse age-gap.
Hot and romantic.
Superior heroine.
Male hero escort.
Forbidden goodness.
ALL the feels!

Intern is by far my most favorite read by Ms. Layne! She has absolutely killed it with this reverse age gap, office, escort romance!


Who knew that when Vice President Sadie hires a male escort, it would be one of an intern at the very same company she works for, Tyson?

Is Sadie willing to risk her job by being involved with Tyson?

4 stars for Intern by Harlow Layne. This is the first book I have read from this author and I enjoyed it tremendously. I enjoyed her writing style and her characters. They way she tells a story makes the reader feel like they are emerged in it at least that is how I felt. Ok so let me just say before I start this review that I have never read an older woman with a younger man book that I enjoyed like I did this one. For some reason I just never connected to these stories for some reason or anoth ...more

Where is the five BILLION stars because that is what this book deserves! Harlow has brought her A game again and she has brought us this story of a woman who has gone through a rough divorce and is looking for one night of fun to give her a boost. Only when she comes to the door to meet her escort she comes face to face with her intern from her job. At first she is shocked but then she goes with the flow and spends one PHENOMENAL night with Tyson.

But Tyson wants more and so does Sadie but she ha

Office Shenanigans

🔸Older woman/younger man☑
🔸Shenanigans at work during Office hours with the door closed but not locked☑
🔸Loads and I mean loads of sexy times☑
🔸There's no the inane and often used misunderstanding trope, where one the MCs hear/read/discover something , takes it out context and instead of talking as adults, they separate for a while☑
🔸No cheating or/and drama with OW, OM ☑

So why my rating is 3.5🌟 ? Because it was predictable and formulaic.

Sexy and steamy reverse age gape inner office romance. Harlow Layne has the market cornered on visual and intriguing storytelling! I devoured this book in one sitting! The only thing I can say that I'm sad about is that we don't have any more Tyson... he needs more story time! Another book dedicated to just how swoony Tyson is....I think it's a great idea! I definitely recommend this fast paced read, you're gonna love it! ...more

Harlow Layne brings to fire with Intern, as it's a short, with a big side of spicy to keep you warm this winter. You can't go wrong with older sexy woman, and young hottie man who set the sheets on fire in an office workplace romance. Add in some forbidden to the mix, not to mention hilarious interactions, yeah, it's a quick read for an afternoon romp, or a lovely ending to a hard day. So crack open the wine, and kick back with the sweet, but oh so sexy Intern! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! ...more

Wow! Who knows what life is going to hand you. Turn a corner and, wham, you’re blindsided. Plus add in a fling with the boss is asking for trouble. You know you have to make a decision as to whether to give in to society’s norms or do what you believe is right. Steamy, sexy, and oh so sweet couple that you cannot help but root for right up until the end.

Holy eyebrow scorching HAWT! The steam rolled off the pages of this one. Even though the characters spent a good share of the time in bed, there was still a decent plot. A little odd that she was his boss but overall a very enjoyable story. I look forward to more from this author.

Wooza! Can I get myself a Tyson please! This is an office romance slash age gap. Sadie has just met her new intern who also happens to be the escort she hired! Oh my! Gah Tyson was just what Sadie needs after her failed marriage. He sweet sexy and worships her. This book was perfect!

Intern is Harlow Layne's new release about a steamy office romance, between an older woman and a younger man!

I usually don't read older woman- younger man romances, I like my men older ;) But I'm a new fan of Harlow's writing so I took a chance on Intern and I'm so glad that I did!

First of all, Harlow Layne, you are the at writing sex scenes! This book was hot! 🔥🔥🔥

Intern is written from dual POV, which is always a bonus with me!

Sadie, recently divorced after catching her husband in bed.

So Harlow Layne has made my day with this book. I absolutely loved her push/pull with the feelings and emotions between these characters. She takes an age gap and completely throws you for a loop.

Her characters are amazingly stubborn and have been burnt. These are real people you can relate to. The way you connect is in a very personal level and she knows how to hit your emotions deep. I fell in love with Sadie and Ty from the beginning. This story will suck you into reading Harlow Layne every

An age gap, office romance... COUNT. ME. IN. Sadie and Tyson are sexy and cute and swoon-worthy all rolled in one. Sadie is recovering from a failed marriage and a bit of heartbreak after her husband betrays her when she meets Tyson-- her intern who makes her feel young and sexy and alive. He dotes on her and quite frankly worships the ground she walks on... and maybe the space between her legs too ha. This novella was equal parts steamy and sweet and I devoured it in one sitting!

Steamy hot office romance? Beautiful successful woman? Hot younger man? Yes, please. Sign me up. If you want a steamy read with all the feels, you must read this one. I loved the chemistry between Ty and Sadie and I was left with a smile on my face. And did I mention Ty was HAWT? Read this book!!!!

Love gone wrong

Sadie is freshly divorced from a man that never should've said "I do" to begin with and it leaves her wounded and wanting.

Who needs a long term man or commitment when you can hire an escort?! An unsure woman needs a little help getting back her groove.

Not your typical escort story. Short and sweet. There a couple questions left unanswered but nothing crucial. HEA.

Whew! Harlow Layne cranked up the heat with Intern! This book is as hot as it is sweet. Full of sizzling chemistry and romance that will fill you with butterflies. I loved the balance of heat, sweet, and real emotion that Harlow did so perfectly in Tyson and Sadie’s story. It made it so easy to fall in love with both of them right from the start.
I haven’t read many books with an age gap where the woman was so much older, but I have to say I really enjoyed this one. Sadie is as sweet as she is sm

Oh my.. this book is so hot from the very first pages. Sadie lost all hope for being loved, though she is not woman enough, not beautiful, not worth, being seen as cold at her work place. Also feeling out of place because of age difference. Tyson felt for her from the very first minute, however even he is not so sure of himself, afraid not being accepted, not being enough. But he is sooo sweet and cute and protective. All this set into company typical set up. Jealousy, rat race, crazy parents, s ...more

A May/December romance that hot and steamy to the core.

Sadie is newly divorced and after the advice of a friend decides to hire an escort to help scratch the itch she's been having and help her get back into the dating scene. What she never expected was to have Tyson, one of the interns at the company she works for show up as her date for the night.

The two have an instant attraction but it can't go past this one steamy night....can it?

Yowzers! This story was hot and sexy and sweet!

Sadie is Frost by name and frost by nature - or, at least, she's that way in the office. When she celebrates her divorce by hiring an escort for sex, the last person she expects to knock at her door is the gorgeous but clumsy young intern from her office. However, he's far from clumsy in the bedroom. In fact, he's downright addictive!

Intern is definitely very steamy and filled with a ton of passion, but what surprised me was the depth of feeling. Now don’t get me wrong, the passion and sexy times are hot in this book, but the emotion I felt from Sadie and Tyson was just as strong.

My heart had hurt for Sadie. A woman in her position relationship-wise in the beginning could have crumbled or become embittered. She impressed me with the actions she took. Talk about getting back on the horse! It actually showed me how she earned

Intern was definitely one steamy office romance story! This is the first book that I have read by this author and I would absolutely love to read more from her again in the future. I really felt a connection with Sadie, she might have been the ‘ice queen’ at work but I don’t think that was how she was really and it showed with her interactions with Tyson.

After her divorce, Sadie decides to hire an escort to hopefully take care of needs that were never taken care of by her ex-husband. She is taken by surprise when she opens her hotel door to see her young intern, Tyson, standing on the other side.
