Publisher's Summary

Alexandra James gave up her spring break for an offer she couldn't refuse: a week-long job that would earn her enough money to buy her way out of a broken heart. But if she thought her new boss would let her off easy because he's her father's best friend, she couldn't have been more wrong.

Dean Brittany demands perfection from his employees, but none more so than his new temp, since correcting her mistakes seems to fuel his unexpected attraction to her. Unfortunately for him, 18-year-old Alexandra is strictly off limits.

Strictly Off Limits is a forbidden romance novella originally published in the Forbidden Fruit Anthology, Volume 1 (no longer available). It's a quick listen.

    Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.

    "What a fantastic little short"

    Jessica Hawkins is a very talented writer, there is no questioning that but I didn't know how much could fit into such a short little novella. Well let me tell you, ALOT!

    Not only was it super hot🔥🔥🔥, Jessica also got a very fun and flirty, taboo story. Definitely a summer must read.

    "I like. Better than I thought!"
    If you could sum up Strictly Off Limits in three words, what would they be?

    Oh so good! :-)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Strictly Off Limits?

    When Alex realized that Dean was who she wanted and she went to get her man!


    Have you listened to any of Melissa Barr’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my second book I've read that Melissa Barr has performed. She gets better and better. Very much enjoyed her voices and the emotions she portrayed.


    Any additional comments?

    Give this book a listen. Quick, easy and enjoyable. And steamy!

    "Love the story!"
    Where does Strictly Off Limits rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have heard better audiobooks, but I have heard worse too. The narrator did a great job of differentiating between the characters, but she still sounded a little "flat" to me concerning the main character. I know she was more of an innocent girl more than a woman, but the longer scenes were a little boring to me because the narrator didn't use much emotion in her words.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Strictly Off Limits?

    I loved when they were eating at her parents and Dean was feeling her up under the table!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    More emotion when it came to the main character especially.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud several times while listening. Especially when Dean was talking to her father while she was...ummm...preoccupied.

    "Short and Steamy Ride!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is my first Jessica Hawkins book but definitely not my last. I loved the story and the forbidden passion between the two main characters. This is a short, hot steamy ride and I loved every bit of it!

    I love Jessica Hawkins books. She writes Forbidden Romance like no other. I was excited to get to listen to this short story and it packs a great story line and heat. I have always liked and have been drawn to older men, so this book speaks to me!

    Story
    "Whatever you say, Mr. Brittany"
    What made the experience of listening to Strictly Off Limits the most enjoyable?

    Melissa Barr does a good job of keeping the story moving, speaking in a clear, crisp voice, and recognizing the characters' different personalities.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Strictly Off Limits?

    It has to feel a little awkward to say some of the sexual lines, but Melissa Barr pulled that off pretty well. One of the most memorable scenes was the first spanking scene, when Alexandra has no idea what's about to happen to her.


    Did Melissa Barr do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes. She captured the innocence of Alex, the slight sluttiness of her coworkers, and Dean.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    .... or is it?

    "A quick, steamy read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Strictly Off Limits to be better than the print version?

    I prefer the print version, as I am better able to form the characters' voices and inflections in my mind.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Strictly Off Limits?

    Dean spanking Alexandra over the omission of a comma. It was reminiscent of the movie "Secretary."


    What about Melissa Barr’s performance did you like?

    I really enjoyed that she didn't just read each character straight and that I was able to tell when she was reading as a particular character.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "By trying to win back a boy, she found a man."

    "Great story & Narrator"
    What did you love best about Strictly Off Limits?

    The person narrating made book seem life like.


    What other book might you compare Strictly Off Limits to and why?

    Knight as older confident man knowing what he wants


    Have you listened to any of Melissa Barr’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't before this one and her voice was really good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I loved this made me hot, wanting more.


    Any additional comments?

    Dean an older male who is confident and knows what he wants. Then you have Alexandra younger who didn’t even consider older male. The chemistry in the book has you squirming in your seat if you know what I mean. It was HOT loved every second of it. It was just brought to life with the narrator.

    "I just took a bite of the forbidden fruit"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Strictly Off Limits to be better than the print version?

    I have read the book and heard the Audio and absolutely would recommend the Audio book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mr. Brittany was of course! Why? We all want to read about or watch something that is known to us as taboo or forbidden and hearing how Mr. Brittany struggle with the thought of the unthinkable was absolutely right up my alley.


    Have you listened to any of Melissa Barr’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have not


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me want more Thomas was a short read and Jessica Hawkins being one of my favorite authors.... She has a knack for writing about forbidden love I'd read and or listen to just about any story she has written.
