FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE LOVING ON THE EDGE NOVELS, THE FIRST IN A SENSUAL NEW SERIES
Overtime has never felt so good…
Marin Rush loves studying sex. Doing it? That’s another story. In the research lab, Marin’s lack of practical knowledge didn’t matter, but now that she’s landed a job at The Grove, a high-end, experimental sex therapy institute, she can’t ignore the fact that the person most in need of sexual healing may be her.
Dr. Donovan West, her new hotshot colleague, couldn’t agree more. Donovan knows that Marin’s clients are going to eat her alive unless she gets some hands-on experience. And if she fails at the job, he can say goodbye to a promotion, so he assigns her a list of R-rated tasks to prepare her for the wild clientele of The Grove’s X-wing.
But some of those tasks are built for two, and when he finds Marin searching for a candidate to help her check off her list, Donovan decides there’s only one man for the job—him. As long as they keep their erotic, off-the-clock activities strictly confidential and without strings, no one will get fired—or worse, get attached…
Dr. Marin Rush—sex therapist. If only her clients knew how little experience she truly has. Marin has spent the past nine years in a controlled research environment, an environment that didn’t require practical experience. But now out in the real world and working at the high-end, sex therapy institute The Grove, Marin quickly realizes she’s in desperate need of some “hands on” experience.
Donovan West is Marin’s new colleague and mentor. In the running for a big promotion which will allow Donovan the free time and opportunity to conduct research again, he knows Marin’s success as a therapist hinges upon his tutelage, his experience, his knowledge. Knowledge he’s willing to share with Marin, as well as his cock.
Donovan suggests that he’s the perfect person for Marin to learn from—both in the office and off the clock. But they just need to keep things confidential and without strings—keeping it as a learning experience only because nobody wants to get fired or attached, right?
I need a cold shower and new panties after finishing Off the Clock. I love a strong heroine—and Marin fits the bill perfectly! She’s just the right amount of sarcastic, independent, smart, and tough, but she’s also tender, loving, forgiving, and thoughtful. She isn’t afraid to try new experiences—and she needs that to handle Donovan.
Sigh. Donovan. What a beautifully flawed, smart, sexy man. He doesn’t quite realize how amazing he is until Marin comes into his life. He just needs to believe he’s worthy and not fuck it all up… easier said than done, he is a man after all.
I am greatly looking forward to the next book in the series. Lane. Mmm….
