Publisher's Summary

Lucy Miller has worked her way up from coffee fetcher and copy maker to invaluable assistant. She's proud of her accomplishments, but she's looking forward to a break from her demanding boss; a visit home is just the Christmas treat she needs.
Diligent and unassuming, Chanoch Evans has avoided relationships not just out of shyness but because he doesn't feel like he has anything to offer - most of his resources are devoted to his war-veteran younger brother. When a desperate plea from their boss ruins their holiday plans, Lucy and Evans are stuck in an otherwise empty office with only each other for company. After catching their boss in flagrante, they start to see that each other's mild workplace personas might be just the tip of the iceberg. Despite the prohibition against fraternization between employees, there may be more than kissing going on underneath this mistletoe.

Hot Office Romance with Introverts as the Stars

What made the experience of listening to Due South the most enjoyable?

This story was incredibly hot. I read it first as a recommendation from the Heroes & Heartbreakers blog and could not wait to hear it on audio. The idea of 2 office nerdy introverts having a hot secretive affair appealed to me. It was sweet and funny and for the third time I am going to mention that it was hot because it was definitely that.


What other book might you compare Due South to and why?

I honestly cannot say. I am use to office romances where the guy is completely dominant or there is an undercurrent of edge due to competitive rivalry between the leads. In this book Lucy and Evans have a great respect for each other and the work that the other does. Evans has a crush on Lucy that he would never act upon because he would not want to be in appropriate. Lucy knows how dependable Evans is but has never noticed how handsome he is or seen him in a sexual context....all until the one day that they both see something they shouldn't and both become very stimulated by it. That is the start of something big for both of them (especially Lucy!) Yes, I just went there. : )


What does Mia Madison and Rock Engle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I can actually say Evans first name now and pronounce it correctly. I could not do that before. I kid, they did a great job. I feel like the male narrator was great at conveying Evans nervous moments and they both did a great job with the many sexy times in the book.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh, yeah. NSFW so I put in my ear buds : )


Any additional comments?

I have not read this series so this can be listened to as a stand alone. I did however just download the 1st book in the series and am looking forward to learning more about India. This book was not just about sex--there was story line that let you in on more about who Lucy and Evans are as individuals and you get to see them both grow emotional and gain independence from things that have been weighing them down.
