JAMISON WOLFE WAS shouting again.
He did that a lot. On the phone, mostly, though Caite had heard him hollering in the lobby a few times when some particularly aggressive paparazzi had managed to get past the building security and find their way to the Wolfe and Baron offices in pursuit of a few of the company's clients. Jamison lived up to his name when that happened, snarling and growling in defense of those he considered to be under his protection.
It was totally hot.
So far, Caite Fox had avoided being the recipient of Jamison's fury, though she'd often thought about poking him to see if she could taunt him into losing control. The thought of it had been the subject of more than a few late-night fantasies, but she hadn't done anything about it. First of all, teasing your boss into a hatefuck, no matter how exciting it seemed, was definitely a bad idea no matter where you worked. Second, it was super hard to seduce a guy who barely seemed to notice you existed. She worked mostly with Elise, scarcely saying more than a word to Jamison, despite her constant surveillance of him. So she bit her tongue and focused on staying under Jamison's rage radar, doing her work the best she couldwhich was pretty damned well. She could say that and not be bragging. She'd been with Wolfe and Baron for only eight months but had already managed to accumulate an impressive client list of her own even while working on everything else her two bosses had delegated to her. This was the best job she'd ever had. Great perks, decent salary.
She considered the chance to surreptitiously ogle Jamison Wolfe one of the perks, and since he barely gave her the time of day, she had a lot of chances to check him out without him noticing. Now the rough, deep rumble of his voice rose through the office walls and sent a shiver creeping deliciously through her, and for a moment, Caite sat back in her chair to see if she could catch a peek at him across the hall. He often paced while he hollered, and she wasn't disappointed now when he passed by his open door. Today he wore the charcoal suit with the deep pink shirt and silver-and-pink tie. One of Caite's favorites.
Jamison pivoted on one perfectly shined black shoe, running a hand through his dark hair and rumpling it as she watched. When he turned, the light caught the glint of silver at his temples. With the phone clamped to his ear, his brow furrowed, he looked both formidable and regal, even when he started shouting again. That was the thing about him. Unlike a lot of men, who sputtered or turned red-faced and ugly in their fury, Jamison Wolfe never looked anything less than perfect.
Startled, Caite swiveled in her chair to fully face the door, where her other boss, Elise Baron, had appeared. In contrast to Jamison, Elise looked anything but perfect. Her fair hair, usually pulled into a sleek French twist, had come loose around her face with pieces stuck lightly to her glistening forehead and cheeks. In the past month, her pregnancy had really begun to show, and her maternity suit wasn't as tailored or flattering as the ones she usually worenow her blouse had come untucked from the elastic waistband of her skirt. She'd taken off her shoes to reveal swollen feet and ankles, and her pale skin looked not only threaded with blue and red varicose veins but also oddly dimpled, as though she'd poked a finger into rising bread dough and left behind an indentation that was only slowly filling in. "Elise. Hey. Are you okay?"
"No. I don't think so." Elise swallowed heavily and gripped the doorframe as she swayed. "I don't feel well at all."
"Sit." Caite was up at once, taking Elise by the elbow to lead her to the futon across from her desk. Elise gave a grateful sigh as she sank onto it. "What's going on?"
"I woke up with a headache today, but I figured it was just my normal sinus stuff going on. Allergies. But it's been getting worse and I'm noticing a lot of swelling in my ankles." Elise blinked rapidly, her normally implacable demeanor shaken. "I should call Steph."
"You sit. I'll do it. I think I should call your doctor, too. You don't look good." Caite knelt in front of Elise to chafe her hands. Elise's cheeks, plump with pregnancy, nevertheless looked hollowed, her skin gray and clammy. Caite didn't know much about pregnancy beyond the fact she had no desire to get in that condition herself for a long time, but something was clearly not right. "Let me get you some water, too."
With a nod, Elise sat back against the futon's rigid cushion and closed her eyes. Caite got up and went to the water cooler in the hall. She drew a paper cup of cool water and paused in Jamison's doorway on the way back, but he was still on the phone facing away from her. He'd moved beyond the yelling to the coldly determined negotiating portion of the conversation, which meant he was almost finished. Poking her head around the corner to the reception area, Caite motioned to Bobby, who was busy at the front desk dealing with the mail.
"Hey. Get Steph on the line, Elise isn't feeling well. Get the number of her doctor, too. I'm going to go back and sit with her, make sure she's okay. She looked really bad."
Bobby looked surprised. "What's wrong with her?"
"Don't know. Phone, Bobby," Caite said firmly. For a guy who worked for a company that dealt in handling the media affairs of celebrities, he hadn't yet mastered the art of not being nosy.
She took the water to Elise, who didn't look any better but sipped slowly from the cup. Caite looked her over, cataloging the symptoms she could see so that when she got the doctor on the phone, she'd be ready to describe them. The phone on her desk rang with the distinctive one-two beat of an internal transfer. That would be Steph.
"Hey," she said, wasting no time with a greeting. "It's Caite. Elise isn't feeling well. She asked me to call you."
Steph reacted immediately. "What's wrong? Is she sick? Oh, God. Is it the baby? Is the baby coming early?"
"I don't think so." Caite quickly described the symptoms she'd noted, listening to the rapid sound of Steph's breathing. She was going to hyperventilate at this rate. "Did you give Bobby the doctor's number?"
"Yes. Oh, God. It sounds like it's preeclampsia. I told her not to go into work today!"
"It's going to be all right." Caite looked over at Elise, whose color was slightly better, but nothing else seemed to have changed. "Do you want to talk to her?"
Elise opened her eyes then and shook her head with a small smile. "Bathroom," she mouthed.
"Steph, she went to the bathroom. Listen, when Hold on.
Bobby's putting a call through." Caite transferred to the other line, where she ran through the symptoms again with the doctor, who determined that it did indeed sound as if Elise was suffering from preeclampsia and who told Caite she needed to be brought into the hospital immediately.
After handing the phone to Elise so she could speak with the doctor, Caite ducked back to reception, where Bobby was busy dealing with an increasingly hysterical Steph. He was good at this aspect of his job, and he handled Elise's wife with easy efficiency. Fortunately, none of them had any scheduled appointments yet this morning, and the reception waiting area was empty.
"She's going to come here," Bobby said with a hand over the mouthpiece.
"No," Caite countered. "Tell her to meet us at the hospital."
She could hear Steph's shriek of dismay all the way from across the room, but there wasn't any time to deal with that. Caite went back to rap on Jamison's door. He still had the phone pressed to his ear and gave her an irritated wave, dismissing her. Not sure how important it was to interrupt him at this point anywayit wasn't as if the doc were calling for an ambulance or anything, right?Caite went back to her own office to find Elise on her feet. Unsteady, still pale, but looking determined.
"I need to get my stuff."
"I'll have Bobby call us a cab." Caite put out a hand to help keep Elise on her feet. "It's going to be all right."
Elise nodded, mouth wobbling as she managed to find a small false smile. "I hope so."
Caite had no idea if everything was going to be okay or not, but one thing she was really good at was holding the hands, both literally and figuratively, of nervous people. She took Elise's hand now and squeezed. "It will be okay. You'll see."
* * *
Part of the reason Jamison liked working with Brett Denni-son over at Ace Talent was that the other man knew when to stop negotiating. Not that Jamison didn't love digging down deep to figure out the right angles for the contract and getting the other guy to agree to what was best for Wolfe and Baron and nobody else. Jamison liked the power of getting someone to do what he wanted them to do but there was also that perfect, sweet moment when the other person at last capitulated, and everything could move on from there.
"I'll have Caite work up the final agreements and send them over," Jamison said now. "Good to be working with you again, Brett."
Brett laughed. "Yeah, yeah, that's what you say when you're riding in that Beemer on my dime."
"It's not your dime," Jamison said, not bothering to point out that he did not, and never would, drive a BMW. Jamison had a '64 Mustang that had been his old man's. Completely restored. "It's the blood, sweat and tears of your clients."
"Fair enough. Lunch next week?"
"Call Bobby. He'll set it up."
With the pleasantries out of the way, both men disconnected. Jamison sat back in his chair, finally, to put his feet up on the desk and take a breath. He'd been so caught up in his negotiation with Brett that he hadn't been paying much attention to the passing of time, but damn, the office had gone quiet. The blinking light on his desk phone told him he had messages waiting, but he didn't bother to check them. Anyone he really wanted to talk to had his cell number; anyone calling him on the office line was going to have to wait until he felt like checking in.
His stomach rumbled, and the hunger he'd been fending off since lunch, when he'd taken the time only to grab a protein bar, roared into full life. The headache followed after, poking at his temples like a dozen tiny devils dancing. With a muttered invective, Jamison pulled open his desk drawer to grab another protein bar, but the bin held only dust and disappointment.
"Dammit." He got to his feet and went to the front desk, where Bobby usually kept a basket of candy, but a few mints weren't going to do the trick.
Where the hell was everyone? Bobby might've been out the door on the dot of five, but Elise and Caite certainly should've still been finishing up some work. Elise especially, since her plan was to get as much done as she could before she went on maternity leave. She'd planned to work from home for the first couple of months but even so needed to get everything settled before then. Caite, on the other hand Jamison frowned. The girl had worked in the office for all of a few months, not long enough to start slacking off, in his opinion. And dammit, there wasn't even any hot coffee in the pot Bobby was supposed to keep fresh for waiting clients. Grumbling, Jamison strode back to his office to shut everything down before he headed out.
He'd missed the ding of the elevator door opening but looked up as the scent of pizza wafted toward him. Not pizza. Stromboli, the best kind, from Gino's down the street. He found Caite in the conference room, setting out the familiar cardboard takeout box, along with a couple of paper plates and napkins. A six pack of Troegs Pale Ale, too. She looked up when he came in.
Jamison paused in the doorway. "I thought everyone was gone for the night."
Caite straightened and put a hand on one hip, her head tilting to study him for a second, lips pursed. "And you were pissed off, huh?"
"No." Well, he had been, hadn't he? At least a little. "Okay, annoyed."
She laughed, shaking her head. "You have no idea, do you?"
"About what? That everyone else around here seems to think that it's okay to skip off, whatever, just because the clock says it's time?" He frowned at her, trying to remember what they'd gone over in her initial interview, but Elise had handled most of that. "I thought we made it clear when we took you on that this wasn't going to be a nine-to-fiver."
"For your information, Mr. Wolfe," Caite said coolly, going back to setting out the food, "I was a little busy this afternoon, helping Elise."
"And that's an excuse?" The words spilled out of him, tasting irrational, and he knew it, but still a little high from his fierce negotiations with Brett, Jamison was having a little trouble coming back to the world of getting along with other people.
"You skipped lunch today, didn't you."
Jamison frowned harder. "What the hell does that have to do with anything?"
"I had to take Elise to the hospital because she was having preeclampsia and possibly going into an early labor," Caite said, voice hard, "which you'd have known if you paid any attention to what goes on in here aside from ragging on people for not living up to your kind of asinine expectations. But if you'd eaten lunch today, I bet you'd have at least asked me what was going on before you launched into a tirade about my lack of work ethic, so sit down and eat something before your blood pressure gets too high."
He froze. "Elise? What? Is she all right? What the hell? Why didn't someone?"
"Sit. Down," Caite commanded in a tone that sliced right through him. "Now."
They stared at each other for a moment before she pushed a plate of stromboli toward him. "Eat."

Rosie Miller and Hunter Black are all kinds of awesome when they come together (pun not intended but hey I'll take it.)
These two were an item five years ago and then Hunter walked away. Rosie kind of knew why. She knew she was needy and clingy and not someone the amazing Hunter would want. In fact she wishes that she could meet Hunter all fresh and new today without the baggage of the past. It was all too humiliating and a lost opportunity for Mr. Right at the Wrong time.
Hunter is mouthwatering gorgeous. He's built and he's together and he's everything you could ever want in a man. And the best thing...he likes Rosie just the way she is. If only they could keep their hands off each other.
Rosie has been burnt by loving Hunter once before so she's keeping her heart and just enjoying the smexy. Isn't she? Of course she is. And if that pesky organ causes trouble, she'll do the walking away because she's stronger now and she's responsible for her emotions.
As always Sarah Morgan brings the feels to even this short read. When we get the whole story it's just...you know. And then when he...and they...it's just....*happy sigh*
Crossing the Line 4stars
I've been enjoying the Cosmo reads. They are short, sexy and have a happy ending. This was a little out of the ordinary because Caite is the dominant one in the relationship and Jamieson is the one obeying. It's not all leather whips and madam lash however. It's about them meeting a need neither of them had explored before.
The relationship is really rather sweet and when things went wrong I did get quite emotional. Which kind of surprised me because generally this isn't my thing and some of the language was a little more explicit than I liked which had kept me disengaged because I was uncomfortable.
Overall I enjoyed the story but because of those issues I couldn't give it five stars which I normally would for a story that squeezed out a tear or two.
It had been five miserable years since Hunter left Rosie. She was head over heels in love with him and cried every night for six months after he left. But time goes on and supposedly heals all wounds. That is, until Hunter just happens to show back up in town just as Rosie is getting dumped. Great timing. Not only that but Hunter is now Rosie's boss. He bought out the gym that she works at. As the two of them are thrown into close quarters sparks begin to fly and the sexual tension becomes so strong that neither one of them can stand it. If they act on their desires will it be a one time fling or do they have something real that can last forever?
I really enjoyed this novella. Sarah does a great job with character development and you cant help but fall in love with Hunter and Rosie. They both have history that they never shared with one another. I enjoyed seeing them find each other again for the first time. I am looking forward to reading more novels from Sarah Morgan.
Crossing The Line-
Holy Hotness! Caite Fox is a strong and sexy alpha female unlike any I have ever seen.
This was my first Domina story and I loved it!
Caite Fox is good at what she does and when her supervisor becomes ill during her third trimester it is time for Caite to step up to the plate. The only thing stopping her from getting a home run is the big boss Jamison Wolfe. He is constantly yelling at everyone in the office and on the phone. He stays stressed out and assumes that his staff is truly unable to live up to his expectations.
Caite has had enough of Jamison's crap. He makes a snarky comment about Caite's work ethic and she lets him have it. Caite decides its time to cross the line and get Jamison to let go of his anger, stress, and anxiety. She does not want to lose her job but she knows its a matter of time before Jamison lets her go anyway so she takes a chance. She orders Jamison to give her pleasure and he does with getting nothing in return. When Caite truly takes control and Jamison is put into an awkward situation will he run from her or stick it out?
This story was smoking hot. It was awesome to watch Caite dominate Jamison. In the beginning it was very subtle and then got more and more obvious. This was my first Megan Hart read and I really enjoyed it. Caite is an amazing heroine and Jamison is an amazing lover and companion.
I really enjoyed this Cosmo Red-Hot Reads by Harlequin. It is a great way to read new authors and get a taste for their writing style without committing to a full novel. I enjoyed both these novellas and am looking forward to reading more books from Sara Morgan and Megan Hart.

5 Rules for Sexy Play in the Workplace!1. Know the company policy;—You just got an opportunity to finally snag that sweet corner office. The last thing you need is a wicked distraction….
2. Don’t date your boss—Sure, Jamison Wolfe has a smile that could send a woman into instant orgasmic joy. But more important, he’s your strict, control-freakish boss. Your hot, sexy, control-freakish boss.
3. Keep PDA out of the office—Okay, so you slipped up. Once. It was just the temptation of having Jamison at your complete naked mercy.
4. Prepare for the worst—This can’t go anywhere. You know it, he knows it. So why stop now?
5. Be discreet—Even when it gets more intense. Even when you push every limit you both possess…
I loved the writing it really pulled you in, felt good without being overly descriptive. As this is a contemporary world building isn't really needing, Four for making it realistic, I laughed when reading the names of the social sites since some of them are clearly supposed to be like the real ones vine/tumblr/twitter.
The pacing was good, gets to the point quickly, has enough tension to keep you interested and was actually pretty smoking when they got down to it. I really loved how the characters develop, and how the story flowed.
This was very different from my normal erotica/contemporary with a strong power flip. It's barely defined for what it really is, but I loved it. I knew I was going to love Caite when she told Jamison " You'd be pleased too, if you paid attention to it...You should pay better attention, Jamison". I just knew it was on from then and I couldn't wait to read how they would work it out. Jamison had himself a long journey and I loved when he was finally figured out how this was going to work, man did he put in the work.
This is Sarah Morgan's contemporary addition to the series. "Burned" takes on the concept of what would happen if you ran into your first love.
First Impression Rating: 3.5
Every girl needs some self-defense. But at Fit and Physical, you’ll learn martial arts and get fit at the same time. Look great, feel better and kick a little butt! Check out one-on-one personal training with our favourite karate black belt, Rosie Miller. She loves her job, the world of martial arts, and her life is just…well, brilliant.
Trainer and martial artist Rosie Miller’s zen is seriously compromised when Hunter Black—her former coach and lover—becomes her new boss. With all the sexual energy still crackling between them, her poor little zen doesn’t stand a chance. So this time, Rosie is determined to do more than put up self-defense. She and Hunter are going to play by her rules….
As a contemporary we're in modern London and the authos' love of London comes through clearly as she makes it the playground for our characters. The story was well written, flowed well and the sexy times were well written and steamy. This is a great quickie romance that is paced well and had good time, not a quckie lust to love, but a renewed love story.
I liked that the character was a strong well rounded character in all of her life, her love life sucked but she knew that and was working on it in her own way.
For the characters we get almost nothing about Hunter until close to the end. It's all from Rosie's point of view and her pov is pretty freaking narrow. Other than her obsession with her flat chest, we don't get much description of herself or others so it's hard to create a frame of reference, which made it a little hard to connect to the characters. Hunter kind of felt cardboard flat because we knew next to nothing about him except that he's a good looking man who inspires fantasies in Rosie's part.
Steamy on sexy times, I mean really steamy. I loved their connection which felt real and very raw. I loved Rosie's thoughts she's funny as hell, but would have loved bearing from Hunter (I'm spoiled like that). The only cons of this story I get that Rosie or Ninja as Hunter loves to call her, is a karate enthusiast (as she's a teacher and does competitions) but ummm... how may women do you know who are going to be dressed to the nines in heels and everything and decides she's going to celebrate her birthday present by doing this??(Youtube video link in original review)
In a tube hanging over London?? Let's be real?? That felt way too out there, still in line with character but still weird for 'reality'. I loved that she even can be a little bit of an idiot and she was still obsessing over her past mistakes ( which I can totally understand).
Overall I liked the story, I just think it would have been better as a longer novel, give us more time to get to know them.
These were quick fast reads, that were steamy and drew you in, this is a perfect summer read!!

~ Crossing the Line by Megan Hart ~
This book is a perfect example of how you can think you don’t like a plot, but as it turns out, you just needed someone to do it right.
A submissive man in the bedroom hasn’t worked for me in the past, but it worked for me here. I loved this short story from Megan Hart.
Both of the characters in this book were likable. I felt like, outside of the bedroom, they were perfectly matched. (They were inside, too, but in a different way.) He might have been her boss, but Caite was an exemplary employee who was very take charge of her career and was doing almost as much for Jamison’s business as he was.
Jamison was an interesting character. We didn’t get much of his past, but that worked for me with this book. There was an aura of mystery about Jamison that really fit this story, and I think one of the reasons it worked was because he was still figuring things out about himself. He was tense and intense, but luckily he had Caite to help him with that.
The sex in this one was hot. What I really enjoyed about it was that Jamison and Caite were exploring things together. They were doing things neither one of them had ever done before, and I really liked Jamison’s hesitancy to delve into this part of himself. He was a manly man, and I think his reactions to what was developing between them made the story more realistic.
Highly recommended if you are looking for a quick, steamy read on just the other side of vanilla!

~ Burned by Sarah Morgan ~
When I first started this book, I didn't realize this was the second in a series, but it didn't hinder my enjoyment of this book. If anything, it gave me another read to look forward to! :)
If you've read some of my previous reviews, then you know I am a huge fan of lovers who have been separated for whatever reason and then reunite.
To Rosie's mortification, the love of her life (who she hasn't seen in years) is witness to her getting dumped just before her birthday. In attempt to thwart the awkwardness of finishing dinner with an new ex- and running into and old ex-, she makes a mad dash from the restaurant.
And that's when Rosie's like takes a turn...for the better or for the worse remains to be seen for our main character.
I really enjoyed Burned. With a book of this length, it can be hard to find just the right amount of intensity, but this author managed to find it.
Rosie was such a likable character. One of the things that I really liked about her was that even though she was mad at Hunter for leaving her so abruptly, she didn't blame him entirely. She recognized things she could have done better in their relationship and took ownership of that.
Hunter wasn't at all what he seemed. He appeared to be a man who had it all together without a care in the world. He'd been knocked down, but he took control of his life and made things happen. While his past definitely shaped the man he'd become, he didn't let it consume him. He didn't give up on Rosie when she fought their attraction, but he also didn't push her. He was willing to wait it out and let Rosie have time to think about things.
One of the highlights of this story for me was Rosie's sister, Hayley. She was a momma bear when it came to her sister, and she was a hoot to read about! Their love for each other was so sweet.
The love scenes in this book were hot. Hunter and Rosie had chemistry from their very first scene!
All in all, I thought this was a great read. I loved that Hunter loved Rosie for who she was, which is something she really needed, and like I said before, that Rosie wasn't blind to her own faults in their first go at a relationship. Definitely recommended if you love hot, second chance romances!
