Marisa Clair wants to get her artist dreams back on track after a life detour. That means no partying, no shopping…and definitely no men to distract her. Should be easy, but there’s something about her hot and exceedingly uptight boss and she can’t seem to stop herself from ruffling Mr. Tall, Dark and Irritating.
Financial consultant Luke McNamara lives his life strictly by schedule – his OCD simply won’t allow him to do anything else. And the very last thing he needs is a sassy blonde putting lipstick on his collar and messing with his routine. She annoys the hell out of him so why can’t he stop thinking about the color of her panties…and how free he feels when he’s with her?
Marisa and Luke’s plans to steer clear of one another are shot to hell after a hot office encounter. Now the two of them will have to learn to get along as they face a much more permanent reminder of their lack of self-control – a pregnancy.

When An affair with the Boss Goes Wrong
Hi and thanks for having me on the blog. Continuing on with my office romance theme – especially with the hot boss – I'm going to have questions about 'when it all ends in disaster'. Because in Talking Dirty with the Boss, although it all ends happily eventually, there is disaster in the form of an unexpected pregnancy. Not good for a party girl and an uptight, OCD boss, right?
Anyway, an office relationship is fraught with challenges, not to mention the possibility of extreme awkwardness when and if it goes wrong. If you break up with your boss, what does that mean for your job? Can the personal really stay personal? Or does it depend on the person and the breakup? One thing is for certain, if a workplace relationship does end, it's sure going to spell a hard time for both parties – unless the breakup is amicable.
But sometimes it doesn't go horribly wrong. Sometimes the boss and you are on a one way trip to a happily ever after. According to Forbes, more women than men date colleagues and if they date a colleague, they're more likely to date one at a higher level. And 30% percent of those they surveyed said they went on to marry their coworker. So clearly it does work out for some people.
What about you? Have you had a workplace romance that worked out well? Did you end up with forever? Or did you have one that ended in disaster? Or do you know of colleagues who have had this happen? What was the aftermath? Did they end up keeping their job?
I'm not going to ask how many people got pregnant to their boss . . . J
