Dear Mister…**strike out** no, too formal.
Hey there sweet cheeks *strike out* no, too forward.
To whom it may concern,
Full disclosure; before we move forward with this email, I would like it to be known that I have consumed an adequate amount of alcoholic beverages to intoxicate myself tonight. Three margaritas, two shots, and one beer—because it was free.
I think it’s important to be open and honest with your co-workers, don’t you?
So here I am, being honest. Drunk but honest. Or just drunk with lust? You decide.
I like you so much it’s clouding my judgment and making me do things I never would sober. Like write this letter.
I have a hopeless, foolish, schoolgirl crush on you when you are the last person on earth I should be falling for. Did you know people around the office call you a sadist? An egomaniac. An insensitive, arrogant prick. Your bark is worse then your bite, and you don’t scare me. The fact is, I’d love that bite of yours to nip at my bare skin while we’re both wearing nothing but sheets.
For once I want you to look at me as more than one of your employees.
And as long as we’re being honest, that navy blue suit you wear? With the crisp white shirt? It really makes me want to loosen your tie and show you who’s boss.
** KU NOT AVAILABLE WITH THIS RELEASES **
Like a goddamn ray of sunshine, light streaming behind her from the window, a halo shining above her pretty head.
Her lying, beautiful head.
Dark hair, wavy and glossy, down around her shoulders, the rich color picking up red from the sun.
She’s holding a glass—it’s poised at her lips and she’s about to take a sip—when our eyes meet. She lowers it, her mouth parts, and her smile spreads.
Until I scowl. Then, her face morphs from happy to concerned in a second. Damn right she should be concerned.
My eyes trail down the front of her and I note her dress—it’s baby blue, wrapped and tied at the waist, and shows off her curves while highlighting her legs in those sexy-as-shit heels.
Stop thinking about her curves and legs. You’re not here to admire her.
The pile of gifts in the corner pisses me off, bringing me back into the present, back to my rage, and has me lifting my arm; crooking my finger.
Peyton’s brows go up at the same time her head cocks and she pokes a finger into her own chest. “Me?”
“Yeah. You.” I know she can’t hear me, but I say it anyway—and if she’s any good at reading lips, she’ll haul her ass over here right quick.
Her cup is passed. Skirt gets smoothed out. Chin tilts high.
She heads over.
“Follow me,” I order her when we’re on the outskirts of the room. When we’re clear across the office common area, I pivot to face her.
She’s shorter, even in heels, so I have to dip my head to glare at her. “Want to tell me exactly what the fuck is going on in there?”

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
Rome Blackburn owns his own outdoor equipment company. He built it from the ground up and is very protective of it. So much so that all he pretty much does anymore is work. He never goes out, preferring to get to bed early to get an early start to work the next day. He comes across to his employees as a jerk. He’s mean and unforgiving in business and the boardroom. He’s also gorgeous – complete eye candy, but everyone is too terrified of him to do anything about his attitude or his good looks.
Strong Female Lead:💋💋💋💋💋
Peyton Leveque is in lust with her boss. She is also one of the most creative employees in the company. She knows her talent and dreams of starting her own consulting firm, so she does. She’s starting from the ground up and is terrified, but determined. She’s beautiful and funny, surrounding herself with a great group of friends who support her in every way. She’s also feisty and doesn’t back down from a challenges. She works hard with the goal of being the best at what she does.
Peyton has a huge crush on her boss, Rome. When she sees him out at the same bar she’s at to celebrate her birthday, she lets it slip to her friends how she feels. One of the girls she’s with is from the IT department. She immediately creates an anonymous email address and dares Peyton to tell Rome how she really feels. She’s too many drinks in to say no. A NSFW email is sent with little recollection the next day. Then she gets a reply. An email relationship filled with tongue-in-cheek banter continues, and develops feelings…
This book is filled with mostly longing, lust-filled looks. Because the emails are anonymous, there is not much opportunity to act upon feelings. These two, obviously, are attracted to each other, but the company has very strict rules when it comes to workplace relationships.
This book is funny and creative. I was laughing out loud at the beginning. However, once I got over the initial email shock and waiting for what would ensue, the humor kind of died off for me. Definitely a book to entertain with a strong female lead.
