Mark had never expected to find himself brown-nosed by his boss at his new job.
Mark is having trouble sleeping. In many ways, his life is precisely what he's always wanted it to be - he has an ideal job, a gorgeous, sexy girlfriend, and is making a decent amount of money.
But he has a problem - at work, he finds himself driven to distraction by his boss, Mr. Rochester, and suffers an unbearable attraction to the man, despite his own supposed heterosexuality.
He vows to stay late at the office the following evening in order to catch up on all the work his dirty thoughts have led to being pushed to the side.
He's caught off-guard, then, when Mr. Rochester himself shows up at the office just as he's about to head home for the evening - and ends up fulfilling his fantasy, by providing him quite the opportunity for advancement.
When you've always been straight but your boss does funny things to you... That is this book. It's a quick, steamy listen that is sure to do funny things to its listeners.

I enjoyed this story quite a bit. His distraction & confusion over his thoughts & feelings over his boss were interesting. I think I would have enjoyed it more if a man had read it being as it was m/m. But I still enjoyed the story

Another entertaining storyline from the author. I enjoyed that the story was written in 3rd person, allowing either a male or female narrator to tell the story - Ms. Heart does a fine job as always with the narration.
Only criticism is that the author uses a lot of the same phrases throughout his stories, especially describing the sex scenes - would be nice to have more original writing and some different plots in future stories.

Listened on the car then finished this book sunbathing in the yard. Lots of colourful language and hot male to male action.

Story: This short story maintains focus on the main character's new fascination with his sexy boss and doesn't break away. This means that there is near constant sex descriptions even as the main character tries to go about his life. The writing was engaging throughout and got pretty damn sexy. This isn't a short story and the plot is clearly a vehicle for the sex scenes, but it totally worked. One issue I had early on was some pretty lazy descriptions of the main character's girlfriend, they were distracting and mean without adding anything.
Performance: Veronica Heart really gives it her all and even adds some interesting noises. However, her cadence is a little distracting as she draws out the last syllable of every sentence. The delivery sometimes sounded like Siri narrating an erotic novel. Also, the audio quality was passable but not great throughout the book, but got really bad towards the end with a weird hum.
Overall: If office fantasies are your thing then you'll probably enjoy this, just ignore the mean-spirited descriptions of the girlfriend and try to ignore the narrator's unique affect.

What aspect of Veronica Heart’s performance would you have changed?
I didn't like the female narration.
