A new stand alone office romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…
I’ve always had one rule:
Don’t mix business and pleasure.
But then Landon Wright comes home to his family’s construction company with a broken back and a beaten heart and ends up as my new sexy boss. As the office gets heated, I’m thinking about throwing the rulebook out the window.
If only there weren’t a million reasons this could never work.
We may have shared a single perfect kiss, but I can’t let our intense connection cloud my judgment. Not with everything I’ve worked for on the line.
Dating your boss is so very, very wrong…even if he feels so Wright.

My major issue with this one and why it doesn’t get a higher rating is the timeline in which the whole book took place. I would have REALLY preferred the hero to have been recently divorced and not just separated. The entire book takes place while he is still married. Right at the start, we learn Landon had an argument with his wife (Miranda) and flew home. Mere hours later he is making out with the heroine and making plans to make her his. Miranda shows up the next day, and Landon decides to give their marriage one last chance. Ummm…OK, with that he just became a cheater IMO. Now to be fair the reconciliation only lasts the plane ride home, then he puts the wheels in motion for the divorce. We then skip one month into the future, and he is now back home and the heroine’s boss. So begins their romance. He also says to Miranda on a couple of occasions “I never cheated on you” Well that’s not really true, is it? Along with the aforementioned make-out sesh, he and the heroine almost slept together months previously when he was still VERY married. So at the very least, he was emotionally cheating on his wife already back then. The whole scenario with him still being married just didn’t sit right with me.The next book in the series is Austin’s, and I am straddling the fence about reading it. Austin is a raging alcoholic and an asshole. EVERY time we see him in book one and two he is drunk. On top of that, his family doesn’t seem too interested in helping him as they always talk about it like it’s no biggie. I mean in this book he was drunk AT WORK and no one seemed to care! We get a small excerpt from his book at the end of this one, and he is STILL drunk and going after his heroine. I honestly have NO desire to read a whole book about an alcoholic hero. Nor do I wish to read a whole book with a hero going through recovery. But curiously killed the cat..so which side of the fence I fall on is yet to be decided.
