The story:
Imagine walking in on your fiancé and your best friend cheating…the night before your wedding? Well that's what happened to Faith. Shattered she takes off and lands in the arms of a handsome stranger, desperate to forget her broken heart if only for a few hours. Fast forward a few months later and Faith is starting a new job, eager to start a new chapter in her life. But coming face to face with her new boss Dean, only to learn it's her handsome stranger from the beach throws her life into further complication.

Both Faith and Dean fell the strong pull of attraction between them, but the company's no intra office dating policy makes it impossibly for anything to happen..or does it?? Faith doesn't want to fall for another man, only to have her heart broken again, and Dean is determined not to turn into his womanising father. But the connection between them is evident to everyone around them and it's not long before no longer deny their forbidden attraction.

The characters:
Dean is a simple character in many ways, he's not a rockstar or some tatted up bad boy. He's a hardworking career man with a kind heart, and that is exactly why I loved him.

I really liked Faith, she was timid and a little bid of a push over when we first met her when she was with her ex-fiancé. She let him push her around and I felt like she was never truly herself. But once she steps out on her own and starts taking control of her life we get to see the real Faith, who is strong and confident and knows she deserves to be treated with respect - I absolutely loved that she wasn't willing to be treated poorly ever again!

Side characters Keaton & Gwen were awesome! They both had some of the best lines in the book. My favourite being from Keaton:

“You would be the lucky bastard that got to f**k a supermodel virgin mermaid. I swear, all the good stuff happens to you.” ~Keaton

The romance:
The steam factor in this book is off the charts! Who doesn't love a good old forbidden office romance?! The chemistry is there from the very beginning and the tension between them builds and builds until I was screaming at them to just give in and admit their damn feelings!!

The writing:
I loved how Caisey made this storyline so believable. I felt the connection between he characters and was hanging on every word they said. I also have to admit I've never read a 'back-door' scene without either cringing or giggling, but this one was actually written tastefully.

Hot and steamy with an awesome epilogue to finish off this sexy office romance story!!
