How can she continue working for a boss who never forgets her work anniversary or birthday? Instead of concentrating on reports, all Cory Servwell can think about is being ravished at work. Being in a constant state of arousal around him is killing her, but the sting of rejection would be so much worse. Resigning is Cory’s only option.

Jeff Farmer has been so careful around Cory that she has no idea he wants her for more than her administrative skills. Now that she’s threatening to leave, Jeff decides to put all his cards on the table. After waiting all this time and through the damage caused by her ex-husband, there was no way Jeff was going to lose Cory now.

Work is quickly put on the back burner when Cory and Jeff scratch the itch that’s been lingering between them. By the time they’re done, there isn’t any more secrets between them and certainly no surface in Jeff’s office that they don’t make love on.

Cory and Jeff have a great work relationship, but things take off like a hot air balloon when Cory tries to quit. I visualized the cool and calm facade Jeff put on everyday around Cory, and the willpower he must have had. I love a strong man who’s in control, but I love it most when the control is yanked out of his hands. Once the truth came out, Cory showed me some boldness that made me smile. This couple definitely heats up the pages in Work It. Even before they admitted their true feelings for each other, Cory and Jeff had a work relationship that made me jealous. It’s hard to find that perfect balance between work and play but I know these two will find it. If you appreciate repressed desires in the office, then you must give this story a chance. You’ll be glad you did.
