Summary: Corey Williams’ life at work is pure hell since he stalked one of his colleagues in an attempt to secure a date. Thanks to office gossip, all his coworkers know what he’s done, and their jabs and cruel jokes just won’t stop. When his boss hires a lawyer to assist with a difficult client, Corey is determined to keep away from temptation and avoid further ribbing. But life never goes as planned. Instead of avoiding the man, Corey douses him in cold coffee minutes after Remington Yates sets foot in the office.
Remy only took the case because his boss forced him to do it, and Corey’s little accident turns out to be a welcome distraction. Overhearing Corey’s coworker’s gossiping, he learns about the man’s bad luck with men and decides to seduce the cute accountant. It’s only sex, and as soon as he’s finished his job, they will never see each other again.
Corey is smitten by his new lover, and full of hope to find love in Remy’s arms. Then office gossip strikes again and he pushes his lover away, trying to protect his heart. But what started as a convenient fling, turned into a matter of the heart for the confident lawyer. And he’s not ready to let Corey go.
If you enjoy a cocky man who engages in old-fashioned wooing, don’t miss this romantic read!
Review: Corey had a crush and went about trying to gain the man’s attention in the complete wrong way. As a result, he is now the pariah of the office and the subject of some harsh gossip by the office witches. To make things worse, the new lawyer in the firm is gorgeous and Corey immediately is humiliated in front of him. Great start.
Remington, the lawyer, doesn’t see a mess up when he sees Corey, he sees someone to pass some casual time and hot sex with while he’s at the office. Nothing serious, and if he’s a little protective because of the office witches, well, all the better.
Of course, things are never that simple and emotions tend to get in the way. The two are making their way to perhaps being a couple when office gossip strikes again and this time it’s Corey who says, enough.
One thing that kept this from being a full 4 hearts for me was the behavior of Corey with regards to Richard. He not just stalked but actively tried to break up Richard and his partner, which didn’t seem like Corey at all, at least the Corey we get here. But I liked the interactions between the two and I’ll forget the abhorrent past behavior so Corey gets his fresh start.
