The Mistakes - An Sexy Office Rom-Com

It started as a promise.
A momentary lapse in sanity had me agreeing to two months of celibacy.
Then Mark Bishop showed up. My new boss was cocky, arrogant, and unfortunately, sexy as hell.
My first mistake?
Thinking I'd last two months.

Book III in the Off-Limits Series - Winnie and Mark's story. Can be read as a standalone.

Warning: This story contains mature humor, a lot of cursing, and of course, sexual situations. It’s intended for adult readers who enjoy that kind of thing.

This is my first read of this author and I will definitely go grab more as I had fun reading the story of a woman who only does flings and a man who wasn’t looking for anything but when he found the one will do anything to keep her close.

We start this story with the heroine panicking because of something stupid that should wake her up but… it doesn’t.  She then makes a deal with her friend to not have sex for two months but that goes up in flames when she meets a stranger at the reception.  She thinks it won’t come back to haunt her but after she starts work at her grandfather’s law firm she runs in to the man who gave her one incredible night.  Yeah, he’s her new boss… SURPRISE!  He’s not exactly happy to see her either but there definitely is an attraction that they try to fight but it does not last long.  I liked her but I did get frustrated with the fact she wouldn’t open up and talk to him/others about how she is struggling.  She’s strong but she really wants to have a family that is stable and hers.  I like how she pushed him to be honest with himself and opened him up to being more relaxed.  She also has a fun business that I was happy to see become something that will let her be her own person outside the family business.

Mark was such an ass initially but the one thing he never really did was lie.  He didn’t always tell her what she was to him but he didn’t lie about it.  He knew she might bolt so did what he needed to do to make sure that she slowly started to understand what she meant to him.  I also love how his grandma makes sure he sees what is happening and how he needs to grab on to it with both hands.  I liked how he worked hard to include Winnie and Lucy but also respected her decisions when it came to telling her family.  It did lead to some tense moments but he really did what he could to make sure Winnie was happy.  He’s also quite opinionated in the bedroom but I’d be quite happy with that kind of attention.

Overall, this was a nice story with a great amount of chemistry between the pair.  I will be going back to read the others in this series and hope others will give this a try.
