Please help me welcome Jackie Ashenden to the blog today in support of her latest Entangled Indulgence release –
Marisa Clair wants to get her artist dreams back on track after a life detour. That means no partying, no shopping…and definitely no men to distract her. Should be easy, but there’s something about her hot and exceedingly uptight boss and she can’t seem to stop herself from ruffling Mr. Tall, Dark and Irritating.
Financial consultant Luke McNamara lives his life strictly by schedule – his OCD simply won’t allow him to do anything else. And the very last thing he needs is a sassy blonde putting lipstick on his collar and messing with his routine. She annoys the hell out of him so why can’t he stop thinking about the color of her panties…and how free he feels when he’s with her?
Marisa and Luke’s plans to steer clear of one another are shot to hell after a hot office encounter. Now the two of them will have to learn to get along as they face a much more permanent reminder of their lack of self-control – a pregnancy.
And now… Jackie:
Hi and thanks for having me on the blog. Okay, I’ve got kind of theme going with the next few posts on this blog tour. I’m examining the lure of forbidden attraction – especially when it comes to office romances. Mainly because the hero and heroine of Talking Dirty with the Boss have that going on in a major way.
So it’s hard when you’re attracted to someone at work. It’s where we spend a large portion of our daily lives and our work colleagues are people we see a lot of – in some cases more than our families. And it becomes difficult when there’s attraction going on and the question becomes will I or won’t I? So many reasons not to, right? Then again, meeting decent people can be a problem if you don’t go out to clubs or bars, or don’t have a huge social network.
Alright, so New Year’s Eve and you’re at a party and your hot boss, who’s also a really great guy, asks you to dance. Would you do it? I know, a dance is just a dance, nothing major, but what if it’s a slow dance? And the boss isn’t just average-hot, I’m talking hottie-hotness here. Every fantasy ever hotness.
And if you DID decide to say yes to the dance, what would you do if he asks you to the bar for a drink afterwards? You don’t have to drink alcohol, maybe he has a scotch and you have an orange juice or a coke. There isn’t anything sleazy about it, you’re both only going to talk. But you know there’s a definite ‘thing’ between you and he’s single and you’re single so it could go further. If you want it to…
Would you have that dance and that drink? And then walk away? Can you handle temptation or is it easier to avoid all potential office entanglements and say no straight up?
How far would you go with the boss?
