Under His Boss by Doris O’Connor (3 Stars)

Cute office romance mixing new love with business.

James Dyllon has been lusting after his boss but doesn’t think he stands a chance with him. George MacKenzie has been lusting after his employee, but doesn’t believe he should cross that line. Until one day he does, and they are both pleasantly surprised by the results.

This was a nice story with a mixture of romance, sex, family, and business issues. Unfortunately, there was a little too much going on outside of the relationship which made it really hard for me to understand why these two guys were so in love with each other. I would have liked to have seen more conversations and time together outside of the bedroom with George and James. There was definitely quite a bit of time spent in the bedroom among other places.

George’s father made a mess of the business he owned, and it was up to George to fix the mess. The easiest way to fix it was to marry the daughter of his competitor and bring the two companies together. The daughter was not a very nice person, and her appearances in the story made that perfectly clear. Fortunately, once George and James connected with each other, they were able to leave her behind. There was also a visit to James’ family for a party where we got to see George reflect on his life. The sad epilogue revolving around George’s dying father was touching.

If you enjoy plenty of activities with your romance, this was a nice story.

Love is a precious thing…

When James Dyllon finds an explicit card on his desk he doesn’t know what to think. His hot as Hades boss has never given him the slightest indication that he returns James’ affections, so this card can’t be from him. Two male lovers entwined—someone is having a laugh at his expense.

George MacKenzie is done lusting after James from afar. A new year brings with it the opportunity for change and George is tired of hiding. Since taking over the company after his father fell ill, he is finally in a position to act on his feelings, and he wants James. The card might be a feeble attempt, but at least James does not seem disinterested.

Together they will be able to weather anything, as long as he can convince James that he really does want forever.
