“I want to taste you tonight.”
With chemistry this hot, it’s worth getting burned…
Billionaire Jack Grant is totally off-limits to Gemma Picton. He’s wild, deliciously dangerous…and her boss. When working late turns X-rated, it’s better than her wildest imaginings—and Gemma’s imagined a lot! But Jack has major emotional baggage, so when Gemma starts wanting to heal his heart as well as enjoy his body, she knows she’s in big trouble…

Oh my, Oh my! I don’t even know what to say, but this was one hot read! A forbidden work romance that was sweet, funny, and sexy.
Off Limits is a book about Gemma and Jack. Jack is Gemma’s boss and that’s why there cannot be a sexual relationship between them, even though they both want it. One day Jack’s crossed the line and since that day, they are addicted to each other. But will it last?
This is is a great example of an unconventional relationship portrayed the right way, it works because neither Gemma nor Jack WANT a conventional sort of relationship and with a happy ending that was totally believable for the two characters in question.
I loved this book. Jack was the perfect emotionally damaged Alphahole boss who was arrogant and aggressive in his pursuit of Gemma. And good Lord did he pursue her. The sexytimes in this novel were SCORCHING hot, they are graphic and they start early on. It’s not for the faint-hearted, but you could probably have guessed that from the cover..
And Gemma was the perfect sassy counterpart to him. I absolutely loved Gemma’s fierce, determined approach to life, her absolute refusal to compromise her principles for anyone. She gave as good as she got and didn’t let him walk all over her. She was fantastic and honestly this short book has been more enjoyable than longer novels I’ve read recently. And her relationship with her grandmother the duchess was fabulous; I could have read a whole novel on the two of them alone.
I loved this book but I feel like it was missing something in the build up of their relationship. And the last few chapters seemed rushed. Nonetheless, I still loved how it ended, they were perfect in the end.
This is my first book by this author and it won’t be my last. I will now devour anything by this author! I highly recommend it!
Clare Connelly grew up in a small country town in Australia. Surrounded by rainforests, and
rickety old timber houses, magic was thick in the air, and stories and storytelling were a huge part of her childhood.
From early on in life, Clare realised her favourite books were romance stories, and read voraciously. Anything from Jane Austen to Georgette Heyer, to Mills & Boon and (more recently) 50 Shades, Clare is a romance devotee. She first turned her hand to penning a novel at fifteen (if memory serves, it was something about a glamorous fashion model who fell foul of a high-end designer. Sparks flew, clothes flew faster, and love was born.)
Clare has a small family and a bungalow near the sea. When she isn’t chasing after energetic little toddlers, or wiping fingerprints off furniture, she’s writing, thinking about writing, or wishing she were writing.
