After Hours by Lynne Roberts
Elle Simpson doesn’t deny that the new intern is sexy as hell but he’s also ten years her junior--and she doesn’t date men from the office. Of course, dating isn’t what comes to mind when David Nelson enters a room. When Elle’s boss assigns her to work an important account, she’s thrilled—until David volunteers to help. Working one on one with her desirable new assistant is bound to test the limits of her restraint.
Everything about Elle, from her professional savvy to her hot body, turns David on, but first he has to unravel her mixed signals. After a few late nights alone with Elle in the office, David is at the end of his tether. It was hard enough during the day; keeping his hands off her after hours is proving impossible.

I did receive this book from Night Owl Romance for the purpose of my honest review. So, all thoughts and comments regarding this book are solely mine!
Now, on to the review....
I will start off by telling you that this is a very short story. Roughly about 50 pages. Now with that said... I will not complain to you that the story is too short - hence short story.
Elle's job is to crunch numbers, fill out spreadsheet and input data. You guessed it, the most exciting job in the world, she is an accountant. She has been working for the Pembroke Accounting firm for eight years now. Also, she has been a widow for the past eight years. But be damn, just because forty is closing in does not mean she is over the hill. And believe it or not... her sex drive seem to be kicking into high gear. Her forbidden rule was not to date co-workers. That seems very realistic; since there was no one there worth dating. That is until a new intern starts working for the company. Filling out spreadsheets is not quite what she wanted to fill out and numbers were not the only thing she wanted to munch, I mean crunch.
But can you blame a woman for lusting over David... The man just exudes sex; his walk, his look, his smile... even his voice. Does it matter that she is ten years his senior, should it matter that they work together... well?
David is the new intern at Pembroke. He was hired as an accountant to work under the wing of Peter, Elle's co-worker... That is until David saw Elle. Then he had other ideas where he would like to work under. He was not sure what it was about this woman, but every move he made - he made it to see her. He wanted to get to know this woman, but every move he made "office wise" towards her, she seemed snippy with him. Almost like she did not like him or something. What the hell, he was a good looking guy and in great shape. It was something about this woman that drove him nuts and he wanted more. He wanted to have his hands on her instead of spreadsheets.
Opportunity only comes one... Elle's boss needs her to do some overtime for a new client they picked up; the catch - she will need some help with the clients works. Insert a very happy David to help. So, what could they possibly be doing working late, crunching figures and filing away receipts. Hummmm....
This book was great. Yes, it was extremely short, but you know what... that is what it is - a short story. A hot, explosive short story. Ms Roberts made me feel for Elle, first being an older woman, secondly for having "feelings" for a co-worker. Those things alone are taboo, can you imagine them coupled together. Oh dear is right! But when just the sight alone of David has her panties in a bunch... or should I say wet - this story gets even hotter!!! David was my kinda guy... he saw what he wanted and took the opportunities when they presented themselves.
So, do you want to know what happens after hours... **insert eyebrow raised** You know you. Or better yet... Do you want know how fast you can go from Zero to Fifty (pages)... Just pick up this book and you will see!!!!
I rated this book a 5! It was just that smoking.
