Office intrigue takes on a whole new meaning in this story of love, friendship, and the secrets hiding behind boardroom doors…
The Company has a rule about falling in love on the job.
I’ve never been one for rules. But I need this one. I need this rule to remind me why I can’t be with Dani Wallace.
I need this smart little foul-mouthed fighter by my side more than I need her in my bed. I need her to close this massive deal. She thinks it holds the key to her escape from cubicle hell and another shot at the life she always wanted.
But there is more riding on our success than she can possibly ever know. So I’ll keep my hands to myself and my secrets safe for one more day.
But now I can’t stop wondering what my best friend has on beneath her conservative suit. I can’t stop imagining the things that sharp mouth of hers could do to me if I leaned back in my chair and unzipped my pants. And I can’t stop pushing our flirting too far.
I’m trying to remember the rule. But some rules are made to be broken.
Company Ink is the debut novel from author Kat Colburn. Company Ink is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Dan and Dani. Dani is smart, outgoing, and has a total mind of her own. She is anything but ordinary. I loved her confidence and that she had insecurities just like everyone else. She’s had a bad run with love and is now focusing on her career. What she wasn’t planning on was her new boss Dan. He’s smart, confident and totally off-limits. Despite the mutual attraction these two have for one another, mixing business with pleasure would be a recipe for disaster. So, despite the connection these two have, they are determined to be just friends. Only being just friends proves easier said than done……
Overall, I thought this book was a really good debut novel. I’m a huge sucker for office place/friends to lovers romances, so I knew I just had to give this one a try. I loved Dani & Dan together and thought they were pretty easy to connect with. I adored their friendship and the slow burn/build to their relationship. The journey to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one for these two. Not only did they have the office place obstacles in their way, but Dan was hiding a pretty big secret that had to the power to ruin everything. And I for one couldn’t wait to see how things were going to play out between.
As far as debut novels go, I enjoyed this one. Company Ink was a quick and easy read for me. One that I easily finished in a single afternoon. I thought the overall story-line was fun and it intrigued me. I loved the forbidden aspect to the story and the friendship between our two main characters. I thought this story had just the right amount of steam and drama with a dash of suspense. I think this author has a lot of great potential and I look forward to checking out more from her in the future.
