Takeovers always cause chaos, never more so when the friend you’ve been secretively lusting after for months, chooses that day to suddenly notice you, and then promptly gets himself sacked.

Maybe it’s the formal wear the new CEO insists on, but Shane seems like a different man, and Emma’s long pent up desires threaten to get her into as much trouble as Shane seems to have landed himself in.

As secrets unlock and office politics come into play, is there a happy ending for Shane and Emma, or will this takeover end with a broken heart?

Emma was nervous about the big meeting where the new CEO of the company she works for is being introduced. While Emma works hard her direct supervisor has a tendency to offload important reports at the last minute and overload Emma with dogsbody tasks and Emma is worried that even a new CEO isn’t going to change things. Emma is shocked, therefore, when it turns out one of her few friendly co-workers, Shane, has been subtly and quietly assessing the business from the ground up. And when Emma discovers it’s Shane who is their new CEO things are about to get very heated and very messy.

I really enjoyed this hotly sexy short story. While the plot wasn’t unique – it was a comfortable and well understood story for me. The old trope of business guy meets quiet but sexy colleague can never get dull and I thoroughly enjoyed this take on it. I was particularly pleased that Emma didn’t hold onto her anger with Shane’s “deception” very long. The annoyance at his not telling Emma the truth barely lasted a scene and I was really glad the author didn’t drag that aspect of the story out trying to add in conflict or tension that really wasn’t needed. I felt it highlighted Emma’s kind and generous nature that this conflict was revolved understandably and natural with a very short conversation with Shane, and felt it really showed Emma’s maturity and emotional stability the fact she could see things from Shane’s perspective and that Emma was business savvy enough to know – while not very romantic – it was the smart course of action Shane chose to pursue.

I also loved how the chemistry between the two characters practically drenched the story both before the “big reveal” of Shane’s true status and that the connection and attraction wasn’t dimmed in the slightest once he and Emma were both on the same page. The was a very small amount of kink in this luscious story (a bit of mild spanking and restraints). Readers looking for a strongly BDSM leaning story won’t find that here, but readers who enjoy a bit of role-play or “slap and tickle” should find this story has a little bit of enjoyable spice to it.

Comfortable and sexy, this is a lovely albeit quick read and one I enjoyed.
