Main characters: Rebecca Fieldstone, roving reporter at KHOT news station. Cade Hill, sports editor and colleague.
The first rule of office romance is don’t do it – especially if your dream is to hold the anchor spot on the nightly news and your boss is trying to get you fired.
But one look at Cade Hill, the sexy new sports director, and uptight reporter Rebecca Fieldstone is daydreaming about other things.
Sex in his office…
Sex in the on-set kitchen…
Sex in the supply closet…
She can’t stop thinking about the former NFL quarterback and how perfect he’d look between her sheets – except he’s an arrogant jerk with a huge… ego.
He’s the last guy she’d ever have a one-night stand with.
Cade Hill draws a thick professional line on office romance – until it comes to the hyper-focused Rebecca. He wants her, and he gets his wish when a chance encounter has them having the hottest sex of their lives.
It’s just a hook-up, she says.
When can we do it again? He says.
With Rebecca determined to keep Cade in the friend zone, it’s going to be an uphill battle for Cade to convince her he’s the last guy she’ll ever want.
Why you should read it: This was a super fun and entertaining read. Rebecca was focused while endearing and I sympathised quite a bit with her character. I have to say that my favourite character was Cade though. He got the best lines, the heat he generated with Rebecca was soooo hot. His confidence was the right balance. I hate a hero that’s so cocky he’s an ass. The dual point of view was well rendered and the story evolved nicely.
What you may not like: Hmm perhaps the flamboyant best friend who happens to be a drag queen was a little cliché – I like supporting characters to be three-dimensional, and at times I felt Chas was more pastiche than real person – just my opinion but I would have liked to see more of the person behind the quips and fabulousness. Also, Rebecca was a little unrealistic about her job. She’s a TV reporter but doesn’t think to go shopping for clothes when her old ones don’t fit? What kind of nonsense is that?
Rating: 3.5/5 for a romantic and seriously hot story. Not perfect but a very pleasant read that’ll make you feel good.
