that they can keep their two relationships separate?
This was my first read from Emma Shortt and I will definitely check out her other books. I really enjoy the humoristic way of writing and the way the characters thoughts are quite uncensored. The characters and the dialogue makes it feel like you are out with friends, having a couple of drinks and talking about everything. The story is short, but I still feel like I got to know the characters. They do decide to keep their working relationship and private relationship separate (although the boss´ office after hours is totally a good place to have fun). Their arrangement seems to work for them, at least until Pam´s co-worker and best friend Lucy is trying to use her friendship with Pam to get out of trouble with Gabe.
Lucy is the character that I have the most trouble with. She doesn´t feel like a very good friend to Pam and still Pam stands by her. She really does nothing in this story that makes me want to like her even a little. The ending of this book gave hints of a sequel and I hope Lucy can redeem herself.
Pleasing The Boss was a fun, enjoyable and hot read.
couldn’t right now, I could almost feel the sensation of him stroking my walls, pulling my clit downwards with each inward thrust.
“I started off in research myself.”The staff all smiled. Who better than a researcher to understand what we did?“I hope you’ll throw the odd project my way,” Gabriel continued. “Just to keep my math up to scratch.” He couldn’t have said anything more perfect and Dave smiled, his curls bouncing on his shoulders, getting his geek on. “We’ve got a really exciting piece of cluster analysis we’re working on.”Gabriel nodded, reached over and scrolled down our iPod.“Sounds good. Will I hear this in my office?”
Dave’s smile faded. “The walls are pretty thin, sir.”
The office paused, breath held to hear his next words, and I took the opportunity to relax my thigh muscles. “I hope there’s some Stone Roses on there, then,” he said. “But I gotta say, I draw the line at ‘Glee’.”And that was that. The whole office fell for the new boss, nodding and smiling at him and one another. I shifted in my seat as my mind worked through the suddenly-complicated situation my whoreish behavior had landed me in. “I’ll see you soon, Pam,” he said as he turned to leave, a scorching smile shooting in my direction. My body quivered, remembering that smile as he licked his way down my tits. I took a deep breath and nodded. What were the fucking odds?
