My Review

Seems that I’ve chosen the right book to start my “Harelquin Dare” reviews series. I was not disappointed at all and I liked Clare Connelly’s writing.   With fun parts, work ethics and lots and lots of (very) hot scenes, this book was great!

“Off Limits” is not the cute romance type of book at all. It is exactly as the title says: an off-limits relationship, as boundaries are broken, limits are crossed. Our main characters should not get involved. They work very well together, they form a perfect team at the office. She is his assistant, the first one to last that long and to accommodate to his character. But their attraction is stronger than the office stuff and once day Jack and Gemma cross that line. And once you are on the other side, you tend to stay there.

The author did a great job building the characters. Jack’s story is not a happy one and she reveals it step by step. I wanted to say he’s an idiot so many times, but then something from his pasts comes to light and … he’s all good. He’s afraid of commitments, although for a though guy like him it’s difficult to admit. She is ambitious, strong and with her legs down to earth, until he sends her emotions flying.  And here comes the part I was not very comfortable with. She knows very well he’s a player. She knows very well he’s not the relationship type of guy and he has major issues. However, she loses her balance very quickly in the book. I wanted to see more convincing from his part. Gemma becomes possessive and she’s not afraid to show it.

I loved each page of this book, it was a very easy read as it kept me right there with the characters. I am warning you, there are some explicit sex scenes in there, so be prepared for a great amount of heat. You might as well have your emotions in check.

I hope you’ll like it as well and stay around for my reviews for the other books in the “Harlequin Dare” pack. Read the Excerpt below for more convincing materials 🙂

 

Excerpt: Copyright © 2018 Off Limits by Clare Connelly

I am holding my breath again. Is that how I’m going to get over this little hurdle? Suffocate myself? Is that even possible? I’m pretty sure we have some breathing trigger in our brains, but my brain is a bit pissy with me so maybe it would conveniently forget about the button.

I push air out consciously, quietly, and he takes his seat.

‘Anyway…’ I prompt impatiently.

His smile is a clicker. Is he laughing at me? Arrogant arsehole! That’s be just like him. See? That’s the problem! I know him. I’m not one of his other women. I know that is he as bastardy as he is sexy.

‘How did you sleep?’

I blink at him, my eyes wide. ‘You’ve already asked me that.’

‘You didn’t answer.’

I except a sign that speaks of anger. ‘Like I always do. Seriously, Jack. My desk is covered in paper. I have to get to work.’

I’m your work,’ he says with a shrug.

Insolent bastard.

He leans forward, and while his face is casual there is an urgency in the flecks of gold that fill his eyes. ‘Did you see him last night?’

I want to remind him of the salient fact I pointed out the night before. It’s not his damned business. But I’m not sure I can say that with such conviction now that I’ve tasted his mouth; now that I’ve been stunned by his desire.

Can I skirt around his question?

You’re my work? Okay, the thing is I have the New York guys waiting on contracts, you have a meeting in a week that I have to prepare for and Athens wants your input-which means my input- on a lease agreement. And I need to – ‘

‘Quiet.’

God! Don’t hate me, but when he’s bossy I love it. And he’s almost always bossy.

I glare at him across his desk; it’s best if he doesn’t know that this is just about my favourite version of him.’
