Publisher's Summary

"Robbed of all sense and co-ordination, I seem to hang there, in his grip. Staring. His eyes scan me, cruising over my face, then downwards, and his expression is amused, certainly, but also disturbingly analytical. After what I did, and what I felt back there in the cloakroom, I feel connected to him, intimately, but clearly all he feels for me is mild interest and curiosity. Or is it?"When reformed bad girl Maria Lewis takes a dull job in local government back in her home town, the quiet life she was looking for is quickly disrupted by the enigmatic presence of her boss, Director Robert Stone. A dangerous and unlikely object of lust, Stone touches something deep in Maria's sensual psyche and draws her to an erotic underworld, a far cry from life in the dusty offices of Borough Hall.

Pretty hot

I enjoyed the playful nature of the book and the narrator was spot on. While it wasn't as hard core as it could have been, it was still a bit more 'exey' than a romance novel. It was a story, human foibles come into (or is that 'out to'?) play, but it wasn't mean spirited. I doubt this book would have been nearly as enjoyable without Ms Kollander's sparkling performance.

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"

Average

This is a decent story, but nothing really special. The character development was somewhat better than most for at least attempting to explore several different characters. But it seems as though the author can't quite decide on the essence of who the principal characters really are. Both the heroine and the hero are complete flip flops to some degree with the heroine flopping the most. In the end, the hero turns out to be much less than we bargained for. While the heroine appears to be still finding her way.
