Tomorrow I turn 21. As a gift to myself, I plan to seduce my father’s business partner…



A new, forbidden, virgin + father’s business partner, standalone office romance from #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely!

Our days are full of secrets. Our nights are for seduction…

For the last year, I’ve wanted someone I can’t have.

The man my father built his latest multimillion dollar business with.

He’s a decade older than I am, and he’s entirely forbidden.

The fact that he’s never given me a second glance only makes me long for him more.

But the other night, across the room at a gala, everything changed. His broody gaze lingered on me and grew darker.

So I’m officially done being the good girl.

Tomorrow I turn 21. As a gift to myself, I plan to seduce my father’s business partner.

Happy birthday to me.

“You know why. It’s complicating things,” I say, frustrated again with our situation, with all the lines between us.

“But they’re already complicated,” she counters.

I stare out the window, Central Park below us, New York beyond. Then I look to the brunette beauty on my couch, my heart pounding mercilessly hard. I could crush her lips in a kiss, cover her body, f&*k her till she’s lost her mind.

Get it together.

“They’re so complicated I can’t fucking think sometimes around you,” I admit, and it’s a wild relief.

“Same for me,” she says, breathy. “Same for me…Mr. James.”

Her lashes flutter.

It’s the first time she’s called me that and it’s too sexy, too dangerous.

My heart stops then starts again, beating in double time. “You know that no one in the office calls me Mr. James, right?”

“Do you like it when I do?”

I clench my fists. “Too much,” I rasp out.

She leans closer. I dig my fingers harder into my palm.

Then she whispers my name once more, letting it slide off her lips like she’s lingering on every letter. “Mr. James…”

I’m this close to saying f&*k it to everything. To locking the door and pushing her up against the wall. To tearing off that shirt, and pressing my mouth to her lush, tempting skin.
