“My guys and I will start unloading the truck. When we’re finished you can tell me when you’re going to make my dreams come true.” Dom wiggles his eyebrows like the lecherous man he has a reputation for being and struts back toward the exit. He bends down to prop both of the doors open, and when he straightens up, he grins at me. “I can’t believe I’m going to have sex with Bobbi Lee.”
“I never said I’d sleep with you,” I shout as he steps outside.
Tyson nods at Dom before he enters the office. “Are you exchanging sex for furniture?” One side of his mouth arches upward.
“No. God, no.” I shake my head. “I promised to go on a date with him if he could deliver the goods today.”
“And you’ll deliver the goods on the date?” he teases.
I give him my best “fuck off” look before I remember he’s my new boss and compose myself. “Dom grew up in the same neighborhood as me. He’s asked me out a hundred times and I’ve always said no.”
“Until today?” He raises a dark brow.
“Yeah. But you see, I’ve got this new boss I’m trying to impress… so I finally agreed.”
He nods. “I like your resourcefulness.”
“Thank you.” I don’t know why his compliment pleases me so much.
“Where are you going on your date?”
“Oh… I’m hoping I can find a way to avoid going out with him.”
“So, you lied to him?”
My lips wrap around my teeth. “Umm, yeah. I guess there’s no way to sugarcoat it.” I shrug.
“Resourceful and not afraid to lie or snoop. You might be my ideal employee.”
I stand there preening under his praise until I remember those aren’t considered to be positive qualities for most people.

From USA Today bestselling author Jacob Chance comes a brand new laugh-out-loud standalone suspenseful romance.
A fake relationship with new boss may cost me everything… including my life.
Tyson Shine is the definition of dark and mysterious. After a week as his assistant, I’m still not sure what his business entails but it seems to be dangerous.
Despite our ten year age gap, I’m captivated by him and have been since our first meeting when he caught me snooping in his office.
When he needs my help for an out of town job, I suggest posing as a couple. Only it never occurs to me we’ll be sharing a hotel room… and a bed.
With one kiss, his demanding lips blur the line between fiction and reality. We agree to “make the most” of our close quarters. Then things will return to strictly business.
Sounds easy, right?
When things take a dangerous turn, romance should be the last thing on my mind. But the protective side of Tyson is irresistible and has me falling fast.
And with both our lives on the line, my heart is the least of what’s at stake.
A sassy heroine who’s a fan of daddy romance, a dry humored hero who can rock a gray pair of sweatpants like no one else, there’s only one bed in the hotel room, lots of action, banter, banter, and more banter, one liners galore, a ten year age gap, and sizzling chemistry that will have you yelling at the characters to give in already!
