What if your boss's wife left him for another man, and your boss—this man of your dreams—turned to you for help? Jennifer Skully sets up this powerful struggle of intimacy. If Grady wants his wife back, he'll need to improve his bedroom skills and the only one he trusts is Jordana, his work colleague. If Jordana wants Grady to be happy, she'll need to show him how to properly pleasure a woman. Together they confront a necessary forbidden love.  How close would you let yourself go? Would you give him a helping hand, lips, legs, and everything in between? Why take that journey if it only means letting your star pupil graduate, leaving you heartbroken? Desire Actually was no quick romp. Skully set up a mighty story and took me through all the compelling, sensual struggles their romance faced. I found myself wrapped around both Jordana's and Grady's hearts, wanting what they wanted, lusting when they lusted, tasting what they tasted. With Jennifer Skully's skillful storytelling, the delicious journey in Desire Actually became my own and I closed the book with a smile of fulfillment. Please note, I received a complimentary copy of this book for a fair and honest review. How fortunate I was!

I just finished the latest Jasmine Haynes book, Desire Actually, the first book of the After Office Hours series and found it delightful. The main characters, Grady Masterson and Jordana Davis just sizzled off the pages. I just loved the trip they took to Oregon and how Grady became the man she’d always dreamed of finding. Can’t wait to read book two!

This was fun and lighthearted and witty and sexy and everything I expect to get from a Jennifer/Jasmine story. It's no secret that she is one of my all time favorite authors in every trope she's written. Her stories always ring so true and have just the right blend of fiction and realism to make it easy to get lost in the pages. The story of Grady and Jordana is an easy breezy Sunday afternoon read. It's not muddled with angst and turmoil and baggage. Altho one might think it would be, it's written in a way where the joy of present day and the fun of discovery takes precedence over the looming backdrop that actually propelled this story forward. Here's the gist .... Grady and his wife have been together for close to 20 years. He thinks they're doing just fine, but clearly she does not since she sends him an email asking for a divorce. And apparently, it's because he's too vanilla. OK, now here's the thing. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that 1) Wifey is going thru some sort of mid-life crisis/identity thing and 2) She's got herself something on the side already. So Grady has a dilemma, he doesn't want his marriage to end, but yet he doesn't even know what the problem really is. Why? Because his wife is not exactly being forthcoming on resolution ideas. This woman wants out. Period. And she makes it quite clear. But Grady isn't giving up. OH NO, he's gonna turn to his sexy co-worker, Jordana, and together they're going to make Grady less vanilla ... Cue, humorous, sexy, sensual shenanigans! I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF GRADY'S LESSONS ;) lol What I really really loved, were not just the actual shenanigans, but the undertow of feelings that were growing within Grady and Jordana for each other and neither was the wiser until WHAM, they were. And it was fantastic. God Almighty these two were soooo sexy together. Especially Grady. He was just so unsuspecting most of the time, until he wasn't. He really made me all nice and tingly on the inside. I loved them both from page one. The only one thing I would have liked to have happened differently was Grady's and Jordana's physical connection to have happened a little bit sooner than it did. Intellectually, I know why the author chose to stretch it out as much as possible, but I just really really wanted those fireworks to happen and I came very very close to the bored with this line before they did. However, still an outstanding story with excellent secondary characters that I cannot wait to dig into. :)
