"Forbidden Pleasure" lives up to its name. It grabs you from the beginning with all the carnal pleasure. These two characters feed off of each other, they're the perfect yin and yang. Emma likes getting a rise out of Max, in more ways than one. Their stolen night together should have been just that. One night. Something for her to remember when she leaves the company and the country. But a problem at the company she is trying to leave requires her to stay longer. Max can keep it professional, that is until Emma. Not wanting to be told wants to do stretches the boundary of the dress code policy. Secrets lie in Emma’s past and she wants to keep them buried. Max means nothing to her, but the closer they become the lines between boss and employee get blurred and the harder it is for Emma to keep her secrets to herself and from being revealed.
Emma Mathison has lusted after her steely-eyed boss for years. When she turns in her notice, their explosive attraction goes from off-limits to very hands-on!
Two words make me lose control. Yes, sir. When Emma Mathison shows up in my office on her last day of work, my former employee goes from all business to all seductress. It amuses me at first…until one kiss kindles an all-consuming need for her.
The flicker of chemistry between us was banned the moment she signed her contract with Whitfield Industries three years ago. She’s a free agent now, though. And when she lounges on my desk that night, crimson-lipped, blouse undone, tempting me to give in, I do. Our red-hot night of passion turns to ice the next day when I discover my company has been hacked from the inside…and all signs point to my irresistible ex-employee.
I can’t let the only viable suspect get away so easily. She denies any involvement, but I’ll find the mole who betrayed me…even if it means an up-close and personal investigation with Emma. This fiery new version of her ignites me. She defies me—and entices me—at every turn. Yet she’s hiding something. I just need to get close enough to figure out what…and not get burned.
