“You are mine for the next two weeks.”

Resigning might be the sexiest thing she’s ever done…

Quitting her job puts executive assistant Bette Monroe in a very compromising position. She has ten days left, and powerhouse lawyer Simon Kramer is working her late into the night…and seducing her into oblivion! While he’s convinced she’s selling business secrets, the bombshell secret she’s keeping would shock him more. Does she bare all…or keep him guessing?

“So then more money will get you to stay,” he said dismissively, as if he’d closed a case. He tossed her crumpled-up resignation letter into the brass trash can sitting beside his desk.

Frustration—and not just with this conversation—overwhelmed her, overcoming her natural inclination to avoid confrontation, and she blurted out, “No!”

Working for him these past two years had increased her frustration because of all those damn fantasies he’d inspired.

“But you just said—”

“I took the job because I needed money,” she said. “I needed money then.”

His eyes narrowed more as he studied her face. “And you don’t need it now?”

“My reason for leaving has nothing to do with money,” she said. Had she not found another source of income, she would have been forced to stay, but he didn’t need to know that.

“So you do have a reason.”

He wasn’t the trial lawyer of their partnership, but he could have been. She felt like she was being cross-examined on the witness stand. And she didn’t enjoy it one bit. Quitting was not a crime.

“I don’t have to give you a reason.” At least she didn’t think she did.

Maybe she should have had a lawyer look at that employment contract before she’d written her resignation letter. But no matter how much she paid, no lawyer would be as good as Simon Kramer. He was the best.

And, according to his ex-lovers, not just at the law...

“Why don’t you want to tell me?” he asked, and he stepped closer now, so close that she could feel the heat of his body through his suit and her cardigan and skirt.

Heat flushed her body, making her skin tingle. She tried to step back but the desk stopped her, the hard wood pressing into the backs of her thighs as he nearly touched the front of her. Her breasts pushed against the front of the gray cardigan as she struggled for breath. She had never been this close to him before. It was more than unsettling. Her knees trembled and her already tripping pulse quickened even more.

“Because it’s personal,” she murmured. And they had never been anything but businesslike with each other, except in her dreams.

He leaned down, so close that his warm breath whispered across her lips as he asked, “Are you in love with me?” 

I received Legal Seduction in return for an honest review from the publisher. 

Simon is one of 4 managing partners at the legal firm Street Legal and while things should be amazing someone is selling secrets but he's not sure who. When the silent alarm is tripped he rushes off from the bar to see if he can find out who is the mole. What he finds is not what he expected to find. 

Bette is ready for a new start away from Street Legal and when she saw her boss at the bar she decided it was the perfect time to leave her resignation letter with her two weeks notice. Determined to find out if Bette is the mole he refuses to just let her go until he knows what secret she is hiding. Over the next two weeks, Simon will do what it takes to find the truth even crossing the line to seduce Bette. Can she make it through the two weeks before Simon breaks down her walls and learns who she really is?

I like Bette she's sweet small town girl in the city doing what she has to do to achieve her dreams. I honestly didn't love Simon at first but as the book progressed he grew on me more and more. They have this steamy undeniable chemistry that just works for the pair. This is my first book by the author and I enjoyed her writing style it's fast-paced, loaded with steamy moments and just enough story that I couldn't put it down. The characters are easy to connect with you can't help falling for Bette and Simon has this dark past. Perfect for those craving a steamy quick romance.
