Overview

The last thing I want is to share my beautiful office with an uptight, unfriendly new English professor. I don't care if he's incredibly hot. He's still the worst office mate in the world.

We're stuck together for a year, and that might be too long for me to resist discovering what's hiding beneath his buttoned-up appearance.

Office Mate is the second book in the Milford College series, novellas about the faculty and staff of a small liberal arts college.

The second book in the author's Milford College series about staff at a Liberal Arts college is a lovely literal 'office' romance, as the two main characters, Beck and Evan share an office when Evan arrives as a new professor and Beck has to give up some of the large space she's gotten used to. Evan isn't particularly friendly - he's not unfriendly; he's unfailingly polite and well mannered, he just doesn't smile or engage in small talk which makes things rather awkward at first. Yet when Beck encounters him leaving food for a flock of crows and picking up the shiny treats they leave him in return so as to not hurt their feelings, she knows there's another side to him, a sensitive side that she'd like to learn more about. And, he IS very attractive.... Soon enough, they are sharing a little more about themselves with each other, which eventually leads to confessions of mutual attraction and some steamy sex (yes, even in the office!). But Evan's reserved nature does cause some issues, especially when it comes to sharing about his family and their history so there are some ups and downs before they get their happy ending. The ending of this one felt a bit rushed, but overall it's a nice, sexy story with likable characters, an easy read with low angst and some gentle humour- a common trait among the author's novellas. And I'd be remiss not to mention the fandom for The Lord of The Rings which is a significant plot point that I much enjoyed. 3.5 stars.

This was a good quick read. I'm loving this series so far. By the end of both books, I'm looking forward to the next.

Wow! This is exactly what I look for in a novella! Hot and steamy, angsty yet sweet, and character development out the wazoo! I loved everything about this story! Beck is irritated that she is going to have to share her office with a new professor so she’s not in the best of moods when she walks in and finds he’s already arranged some of her things. Trying to make it work, she attempts to get to know him but he seems to be a man of few words and she feels like she’s getting nowhere. Despite his serious vibes and unsmiling nature, she finds herself attracted to him. When she finally yields to temptation she opens the door to a relationship filled with dirty talk and smexy times that blow her mind. Unfortunately, it appears that Evan doesn’t want more and that just isn’t going to work for her. This was so much more than what it appears to be on the surface. Beck has been through enough life changes to learn to accept herself as who and what she is and she refuses to allow anyone to make her feel less. I loved that she fought hard to hold fast to her belief in herself. Evan is secretive about his past, including his family. He holds himself back from her to the detriment of their relationship but when we learn why he does so, my heart broke for him. For a novella, Evan and Beck were very well developed as was their relationship. This felt like a longer book in that everything was well rounded, nothing felt rushed, there was no over the top reactions, and it all felt very real. I love when a plotline can pull me in with its realism without losing the magic of the romance, and this one did exactly that. With some wonderful scenes regarding The Lord of the Rings and the sweetest epilogue, this book left me grinning from ear to ear.
