Publisher's Summary

Erin Coffey has been a nurse for years, but nothing's prepared her for the physical and emotional demands of her new position. Needing to move closer to her dysfunctional family, she takes a dangerous job at Larkhaven Psychiatric Hospital, where she quickly learns that she needs protection - and she meets the strong, over-confident coworker who's more than willing to provide it.
Kelly Robak is the type of guy that Erin has sworn she'd never get involved with. She's seen firsthand, via her mess of a sister, what chaos guys like him can bring into a woman's life. But she finds herself drawn to him anyway, even when he shows up at her door, not eager to take no for an answer.
What Erin finds even more shocking than Kelly's indecent proposal is how much she enjoys submitting to his every command. But he can't play the tough guy indefinitely. If they want to have more than just an affair, both will have to open up and reveal what they truly need.

" We got a little something between us."

After Hours is a deeply passionate and sensual read that I truly enjoyed. The story is well-written and very unique. An aspect of the story that I found interesting was the fact that the majority of the plot was centered on a psychiatric hospital. The author essentially gives you a different perspective and makes you feel sympathetic towards the psych patients. Erin the LPN who relies on no one and Kelly who has to have having complete control. These two individuals meet at work, become friends and got to know each other from the very first day. They are drawn to each other immediately. Kelly's words..."We got a little something between us." He propositions Erin in having a weekend of passionate sex but with him having complete control. Eventually, Erin gives in to his attraction and has the best sex of her life. They slowly build a relationship together but it's hard since they are both guarded from past events. I enjoyed the banter back and forth between them. I loved that Kelly was a tough manly guy but still sweet inside. Erin was a strong independent woman always putting others before herself. We learn right away that Kelly is extremely dominant & demanding between the sheets. Overall, the premise of the book was good. I will spare you from spoilers. I would not categorize this book with the typical romances. The story flowed well and didn't disappoint me at all.

Boring is right

I've tried to listen but have fallen asleep twice, I won't make it in the car with is one, I'll fall asleep on the road. There is absolutely no chemistry between the characters. It's unfortunate because I've read another short story from this Auther and it was good. Maybe it's the narrator?
