SHOCK AND AWE
An Age Gap Office Romance
The investigation draws them together, will office politics tear them apart?
For the past two years, my assistant Bethany Colombo has unknowingly been tormenting me.
Hiring Bethany to keep my private security company, Pride Security, running smoothly was both the best and worst thing I ever did. There is no question she’s the most reliable and hardworking employee I have. If only she wasn’t wrapped up in such a sweet-smelling, amazing assed, too young for me package.
I hate and crave, in equal measure, each morning when she bounces through the door.
Bethany is exactly what I need to grow my fledgling company and continue to provide for my employees. There’s no way I want to fuck that up…
My attraction to Derek Lion has only grown over the years. There’s just one problem... he’s my boss.
Part of Derek’s attraction is that he respects me as a person. Which means he will never act on his feelings.
As Derek and I work together, to find a missing jeweled mask, I am determined to prove to him that we are a perfect team inside and outside of the office.
I am hell-bent on getting him to finally act on our mutual feelings…
Rene Webb, a former Catholic schoolgirl, and child of the ’80s, is a recovering soap opera addict who grew up watching General Hospital. She became weary with the relentless drama and sought out stories with happy endings that lasted. Now, Rene is a contemporary romance author, where there is always a happily-ever-after!
A graduate of The George Washington University in Washington DC, ’05, with a BA in History. Rene went on to get her Masters in Film Studies, ’09, from Chapman University, Orange, CA.
Authors such as Jane Austen, Kristen Ashley, Cherise Sinclair, Sierra Cartwright, Donna Fletcher, Laura Kaye, and Stacey Kennedy have inspired her. They all create strong female characters, swoon-worthy men, and stories that leave their readers with the hope that you, too, will find your own H.E.A.!
When her characters aren’t talking to her, Rene enjoys reading, baking, seeing movies, going to museums, playing tabletop games and spending time with her friends and family. She is also a self-professed hot chocolate snob.
Rene lives in Northern Virginia.
