I have limits. Rules. No attachments allowed, because I don't love. But, with her smart mouth and quick banter, my office manager creeps past my defenses.
Swearing off men after escaping a toxic relationship, I'm grateful for a fresh start. Of course, my new job isn't tranquil and calm thanks to my boss, the most infuriating man on the planet.
When circumstances put me in a perilous position, the first person to rescue me is none other than Foster. I get to see the former Navy SEAL in action, not as my aggravating boss, but the man who will stop at nothing to ensure my safety.
The same man who makes me want to reconsider my self-imposed embargo on men.
The same man who makes me want - more.
But more isn't always possible when you're Out of Love.

WIT, WARMTH AND WORRY FREE LISTENING
This is a new author for me. and it’s someone I’ll be watching for in the future because this hot and humorous Contemporary romance was cleverly written with wit and a smooth pace by RC Boldt. Foster (the hot hero) started his Private Security Consulting firm when he left the Military and this is where he, and his feisty sexy Office Manager Noelle, are strongly denying the physical lure and sexual attraction they have for one another. They both think it’s unrequited lust but, as the ex military co-workers can testify to, Noelle and Foster need to lower their barriers, get together and see that they’re actually made for each other.
Ex Navy Seal Foster is Noelle’s handsome sexy boss.. however, he’s a manwhore and has a commitment free attitude of ‘three and done’ when it comes to his long list of willing hookups. And anyway Noelle’s taken a long sabbatical from men after her disastrous relationship with her ex.. but their good humored quick-witted banter is fuelling their desires rather than dousing them. So, when Noelle’s past finally catches up with her again, his actions puts sultry spitfire Noelle, and sweet sexy Foster, under the same roof. And under that roof they told themselves the biggest lie of all... “it’s just casual” - because it was anything but casual.. however, it was going to take a while.. and it was going to hurt in the end because Foster was punishing himself for what he did overseas. He was denying himself any chance of a HEA until Noelle.. because with her it was different. With Noelle Foster felt much more, tasted true contentment and glimpsed what could be his future.. but Foster’s burden was heavy and he wasn’t ready to open up, forgive himself, admit his true feelings and let her in.. until it was too late.
It was enjoyable, had a good supporting cast of secondary characters and Foster and Noelle were likeable, fun and flirty.. but, after the initial push/pull of their budding relationship, and the drama caused by Noelle’s ex, there wasn’t really anything new. And that’s absolutely fine if you’re looking for a low angst listen.. but, IMHO, the ex could’ve stirred up more trouble which would’ve prolonged the suspense and drama rather than keeping the story fairly simple. It’s got sex, passion, humor, verbal sparring, sizzling chemistry, witty banter and a close band of friends and family whose dynamics and help with Noelle and Foster were crucial all the way. Foster is hard on the outside but protective, loyal and sweet inside.. and his service dog Harley is there for the mentally scarred ex Special Ops Military man - but he steals a few scenes when Noelle needs him too.
Worth a credit? Yes I think so, it had an alternating POV storyline which was good, it put a smile on my face and it was an entertaining and enjoyable listen with excellent narration.
