Sleeping with the enemy is never a good idea, especially when she’s your boss.
No one tells Shane Williams what to do. His world. His rules—which is why he ran away from home at eighteen to pursue his dream of making a name for himself outside of small-town Georgia. Ten years later, he is one of the hottest creative directors on the east coast and the majority shareholder in a digital media firm in Charlotte. Handing over the business portion of his company to his trusted friend and business partner and keeping his true identity as the founder a secret has its perks. But Shane is about to find out one of its flaws.
At the expense of her relationships, Rosemary Berkowitz has always done what it takes to succeed. Being a female leader in an all-boys tech field has made her tougher than nails. She may be a sweet country girl, but, underneath her innocent exterior, Rose is a boss with an iron fist. She never backs down from a challenge, and, when she wants something, she goes after it full force.
No matter how sexy his smile is, the attention of a tattooed bad boy is the last thing Rose wants. After a club outing with her best friend turns into a steamy night with a mysterious stranger, Rose wants nothing more than to move past her one-night stand—however amazing it was—and continue to mend her broken career. Little does Rose know that fate has other things in store.

At first I didn't think I was going to like Shane, but boy was I ever wrong. I just loved the way he was with Rose. She definitely deserves someone like him in her corner. My heart just goes out to Rose. She has somethings to work through. Rose needs someone who can ease her pain she has inside and Shane may just be what the doctor ordered. It has heart, but it brings the heat as well. I laughed and cried while reading this one. All the characters are great. I was sucked right into this book. Shane and Rose make this book and loved reading their journey.
I’m blown away that Under Her Authority by L.T. Shade is a debut novel! It takes the office romance and a one-night stand plot line and turns it on its head. Thoroughly engaging, this romance delivers to the nth degree. Until recently, Rose had followed all the rules. She didn't want to follow the rules anymore. She wanted to break them. Disillusioned by her life in Texas, Rose Berkowitz flies back home to North Carolina with a five-year plan and a new job as Marketing Director for a startup. Her last weekend of freedom is dedicated to letting her hair down and picking up a hot guy. Only the guy she finds is so far away from her desired down-home country cowboy that she can get. And Rose just can’t look away. Shane Williams is out for a night on the town when he meets a blonde that rocks his world. Right before she disappears never giving her name, that is. But fate changes plans and when Shane has to be on top of his game, his relationship with Rose makes him anything but. Can they both make things work Under Her Authority? I’ve read quite a few office romances recently, but I have to say this one stands out above the rest. It was just so original! The southern charm was as refreshing as sweet tea and the quips, banter and sexual tension were all tart as the lemon garnish. Rose is full of surprises! She’s definitely an independent person, and she expects a lot of herself and the people around her. I loved seeing a strong woman in a position of leadership. She’s newly single and has cemented her goals. She'll use her position at Lambda and move on to something bigger and better. It’s fun to see how fate complicates this vision for her. Rose doesn’t expect to fall in love with her job. She’s sidelined by how her plans are changing and the catalyst for all that is in a package of muscles and tattoos. Shane is used to throwing aside the rules and he designed his life to fit that vision. Only Rose likes the rules--lives by them--and as Shane’s new boss, Rose requires it of him. It increases their chemistry tenfold, and bold, confident Shane meets her step for step. Shane is smooth and suave, dominant but still achingly real and so sweet. I just loved these two together. The fireworks are there from the very first moment, and they are absolute dynamite! Under Her Authority was an absolute gem of a find for me, and I’ll be on the lookout for more from this delightful author. Five Dazzling Debut Stars!
Oh man, one of my favorite storylines is the old one-night stand that turns into something so much more like it’s a long lost friend’s brother or a coworker at a job that starts in a few days. This is the predicament Rosemary “Rose” Berkowitz finds herself in… her hot AF nigh with a sexy stranger just so happens to be one Shane Williams—resident bad boy hottie and now Rose’s employee! Shane’s used to being the man in charge… he’s not one to give in to authority, especially one packaged so deliciously as Rose. She’s his dream woman, but he’s forced to keep his feelings in check because Rose isn’t willing to go down that path with him again… her body is, but her mind is not! I loved the give and take between Rose and Shane. They’re both super strong willed and it was really fun watching them try to stay apart. The challenge of working together—with Rose as Shane’s boss was a fun twist too, especially because Shane doesn’t like to take direction. Some of their snarky banter was laugh out loud funny. All in all, I greatly enjoyed L.T. Shade’s debut! Under Her Authority is fun, smart and very sexy.
Lady Fate What a great book for a debut novel and author! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story. A sexy playboy meets his match with a tough workaholic that can hold her own, even against him. However once they’re together everything and everyone disappears. Rose tries hard to stay away from Shane, but fate keeps pushing them together. They have their ups and downs throughout this steamy HEA love story, along with some major decisions to make. But I liked the complete package! Due to sexual situations and adult language this novel is recommended for readers 18 and older! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book via Tasty Book Tours for an honest blog tour review.
Who's playing who? Under Her Authority is as sensual as it is thrilling. Control is the ultimate prize and power, secrets and seduction are the name of the game. Shane is a cutthroat businessman with a will of iron and a heart to match. Rosemary is his equal in every way. Game On. Forget foreplay. This cunning duo is in for the fight of their lives in and out of the bedroom. L.T. Shade must have read my mind. For me, a strong personality and a complicated journey are an appealing combination. She delivered both with a heaping dose of emotional baggage. WINNER, WINNER, CHICKEN DINNER.
