Kari Reynolds is a human resources specialist on a short-term assignment at Coleman Engineering. It's her job to lead workshops but there's one big problem - the boss, Matt Bradford.
Being near Mr. Tall, Dark and Smoking Hot brings out Kari's naughty side. One look at him makes her forget what's appropriate in the workplace, and she's smart enough to know the heated glances he's shooting her way have nothing to do with business.

Now all she has to do is convince Matt to ignore her job title and try a little office pleasure…


Title: RISQUÉ BUSINESS
Author: HelenKay Dimon
Series: Standalone?
Genre: Contemporary Romance

First line:
Matt Bradford stared across the conference room and felt his balls clench.

Memorable Scenes:
The whole story was short and therefore memorable in its entirety, I do have one moment that stood out: sexy times against the door in Matt's office > that was so freaking hot!



QuickScore-Verdict:
The very first line of this short story (you might have read it at the top of this post and I dare you not to be intrigued by that sentence) hooked me immediately. The first chapter was so incredibly hot and that was without any physical contact between Matt and Kari.

The small page-count leaves no real room for in-depth characterization. Still I didn't need that to like Matt and Kari as the main characters of this book and as a couple. One thing I didn't quite get was the conflict in this story and Matt's anger but the groveling at the end was so excellent it made up for it and scored some points for the story.

Don't let the shortness of this story fool you…it's definitely worth reading …it can be your quickie and satisfying lunch break read anytime! Within 24 pages HelenKay Dimon gave me a story that was hot, fast-paced and well written.

Favorite Quote:
She had hips and breasts and a brain…and a bad case of lust for Matt Bradford

Well, that is an extremely short book! I think it takes more time to write the review than read the book.

39, married to my real life romance hero, addicted to TV shows, reading romance novels and Twitter. I'm a chronic (e)book hoarder and my absolute favorite genres within romance fiction are contemporary romance and romantic suspense, but I don't shy away from historical, paranormal or erotic romance either. Even the occasional (urban) fantasy romance, futuristic and sci fi romance may make it to my Mount TBR. This is my corner of the world wide web where I let you know what books I'm hoarding, reading and reviewing.
