Jocelyn Adams grew up on a cattle farm in Lakefield and has remained a resident of Southern Ontario her entire life, most recently in Muskoka. She has worked as a computer geek, a stable hand, a secretary, and spent most of her childhood buried up to the waist in an old car or tractor engine with her mechanically inclined dad. But mostly, she's a dreamer with a vivid imagination and a love for fantasy (and a closet romantic—shhh!). When she isn't shooting her compound bow in competition or writing, she hangs out with her husband and young daughter at their little house in the woods.

Eva knows it’s dangerous to her career and happiness to mix business with pleasure, but her boss, Ben, isn’t about to be denied. Little did she know her secret life could get her screwed in more ways than one and might even get her dead!
Thirtysomething Eva had a choice to make: shut her big mouth and work directly for Ben Hathaway—the übersexy, incredibly arrogant, reclusive owner of Hathaway Pharmaceuticals. Or tell him he’s an ass like she’s dying to do and get herself fired.
Giving up, though, would leave her penniless, land her back home with a father who hates her, and without the only job she’s ever loved.
Decision made, Eva opts for the lesser of two evils. So she thinks.
Ben keeps Eva on call twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week—tasked with activities that don’t fit her job description: like getting him coffee, staying for dinner, and more … personal requests. Despite having sworn off men, the chemistry between them lights fires she’s supposed to be putting out.
As it turns out, getting screwed by the boss takes on a whole new meaning. When word of their developing relationship leaks, both of Eva’s roles—reluctant girlfriend and IT genius—are subject to termination.
She was absolutely right when she thought getting involved with Ben was a bad idea, and now, balancing work and love may no longer even be an option. Saving Ben may require that Eva walk away. From everyone.
That, or death may be the cause that parts them. Forever.

Best. Contemporary. Ever. It's a shame that Ms. Adams doesn't write more in this genre. Her voice & style are perfect for today's romance stories, especially when the MC has a bit of snark within. ;) Loved the characters, their back stories that slowly revealed with just enough teasing to make us wonder who they really are at their core. The inner turmoil was palatable, the external heart thumping and at times cringe-worthy. And the sexual tension? Kick bum. All I can say, is you're going to see Tiramisu in a whole new light. A yummy one. Recommend? Absolutely. Even if you're not into contemporary (like me!) this book is SO worth the read. Ms. Adams just might change your mind on the genre.
