This week's quote: Comes from Taking the Score by Kate Meader.
Okay so if you’re a pet parent you’ve had this kind of scene with your pet. Brody has forced his secretary Emma to move in with him temporarily while she gets her life together. Unfortunately she comes with an ill tempered, vindictive cat named Kevin. Brody being a good guy is trying to win him (and Emma) over but Kevin just isn’t having it at the moment.
Glancing down, he found Kevin glowering, looking like he’d murdered Brody three times in his fantasy life before breakfast. Brody did not enjoy cats. He suspected he was the only person in the world who did not appreciate cat videos. After a ten-second face-off, he reached for a tin of tender turkey Tuscany with long grain rice and garden greens in a savory sauce, and got busy serving the new ruler. As he set the bowl down, Kevin hissed at him.
“You and I are going to have to get along, you little fucker. I’m giving you a roof over your head, treats to eat.”
Cat eye roll.
“Fine, have it your way. I don’t need your approval.” Brody stood and moved a few feet away so the cat wouldn’t feel uncomfortable. Because it was all about catering to his needs. Jesus.
His office temptation is now his full-blown fantasy…
Paying down her sister’s debts has left personal assistant Emma Strickland with little more than the thrift store suit on her back. And as if the suckfest couldn’t get worse, she’s forced to get a second job as a waitress to support herself and her cat. At a strip club. Her uptight, sexy-as-hell boss Brody Kane can never find out.
Texas property tycoon Brody Kane hired Emma for her spreadsheet skills, but her prim and proper demeanor sealed the deal. There’s no room in his life for a sexy distraction…and yet, he can’t stop lusting after the delicious Ms. Strickland. But then he takes an important client to a Chicago strip club and gets the worst lap dance in adult entertainment history. From Emma.
Now that he knows his office good girl has a naughty streak, Brody makes it his mission to uncover her secrets, one illicit, over-the-desk encounter at a time. But Emma is hiding more than her side job, and her final secret could end up destroying them both.
