Overtime has never felt so good…
Marin Rush loves studying sex. Doing it? That’s another story. In the research lab, Marin’s lack of practical knowledge didn’t matter, but now that she’s landed a job at The Grove, a high-end, experimental sex therapy institute, she can’t ignore the fact that the person most in need of sexual healing may be her.
Dr. Donovan West, her new hotshot colleague, couldn’t agree more. Donovan knows that Marin’s clients are going to eat her alive unless she gets some hands-on experience. And if she fails at the job, he can say goodbye to a promotion, so he assigns her a list of R-rated tasks to prepare her for the wild clientele of The Grove’s X-wing.
But some of those tasks are built for two, and when he finds Marin searching for a candidate to help her check off her list, Donovan decides there’s only one man for the job—him. As long as they keep their erotic, off-the-clock activities strictly confidential and without strings, no one will get fired—or worse, get attached…

Off the Clock is the first book I’ve read by Roni Loren and it won’t be my last. Her writing style has a fantastic flow, the character development is spot on — I couldn’t have asked for a better first impression from a new to me author.
I’m a huge sucker for second chance romances, throw in the emotional upheaval that shaped the characters and off the charts hot erotica and I’m one happy book whore. I loved the circumstances that originally brought Donovan West and Marian Rush together. With a little humor and a lot of sexy they started an easy friendship that sparked into a night of passion.
Fast-forward several years and they bump into each other again — literally. Again another humorous meeting. I’m going to tell you right now I did not start this part of the story liking Donovan. In fact, I basically wanted to slap his face off. He didn’t do much to change my mind for a while, but when he turned around, I was sold. Complete and total lust for my newest book boyfriend.
“We kissed last week and our clothes almost caught on fire. We’ve got chemistry, Rush. And if you think I’m doing this as a favor and that I don’t crave exactly that kind of rawness that you’re talking about, you haven’t been paying attention. I’m happy to take things slow since you’re new to so much. But that doesn’t mean I don’t think about hauling you up against a wall, hiking your skirt up, and f**king you like I own you. I think about it. I think about it. All. The. F**king. Time.”
He definitely has a dirty, dirty mouth. He’s 100% temptation. Marian tries to keep things professional between them when she lands her new job at The Grove and he becomes her mentor. You know what they say about best laid plans. Things quickly derail and passion reignites. The chemistry is off the charts and there were moments I thought my Kindle would catch fire. So good.
“Tell me now, Rush. I want you more than I can put into words, but you know I’ll listen. I’ll always listen. What color is the sky?”
Off The Clock is sexy to the max with a set of characters that will steal your heart. I don’t think there was a single moment while reading that I wasn’t anxious to get to the next chapter, to see what was coming. Or who. If you’re in need of a kinky romance that will light your fire and warm your heart, this is the book to read.
