Review – Off Limits by Clare Connelly

REVIEW:

What a fabulous introduction to Harlequin’s most risque line to date.  Jack and Gemma are dynamite and I just don’t mean as far as their sexual activities go.  Jack is Gemma’s boss and what a demanding, broody, sexy, a**hole he can be. Seriously, you don’t know if you want to punch him or rip his clothes off.  Gemma is great.  She handles him like a pro and you almost don’t even know how desperately she lusts after him.  She is certainly no doormat and I admire her fortitude and grace, especially when I myself would have delivered a swift kick in the junk to Jack, had I been in her place.  She is plucky and smart and I adored her!!! Still, her downfall is her secret infatuation with Jack.  Jack plays on this because he is aware of it but never crosses a line.  However, with chemistry like theirs, there is no way to ignore the way the sparks fly and when they catch, they burn like a raging wildfire.  I loved the witty banter between the two of them but even more, I adored how Gemma so desperately tries to “fix” Jack and how Jack must grovel when he realizes she means more to him that he ever imagined. The sex scenes are fantastic, the plot fresh and fun with plenty of raunchy humor and sweet tender moments.  If this is the starting line of a marathon, Harlequin is sure to be the winner at the end of this race.  Entertaining, engaging, erotic…I DARE you to pick Off Limits up!  You won’t be disappointed!  5 stars!

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.’
