Some rules are made to be broken…
Rule number 1: No touching
Rule number 2: No kissing
Rule number 3: Never, ever, fall in love
Holly Wilder finds some of those rules pretty difficult to follow during her boss’s visits to present the Employee of the Month award. A relationship between them is prohibited, and even if it wasn’t, Holly has no intention of ever falling in love again. But that doesn’t stop her from craving Max’s touch.
Hotel owner Max Lazzari never expected to break his own rules, especially when they are so important to him. But sexy employee Holly is too hard to resist. Their no-strings, secret arrangement fits in perfectly with his no-commitment plan. A plan to ensure that no woman will ever again have the opportunity to hurt him.
Sizzling nights together mean Holly and Max start looking forward to the monthly visits more and more. Until they are both brought down to earth with a bump—a pregnancy one!
Will rule breaking lead to broken hearts?

‘Employee of the Month’ is a sensuous, romantic story. Holly is a courageous, independent heroine. Max is a sexy, tortured hero and there is fantastic heat generated whenever they are within touching distance. The beautifully written sensual love scenes give important insight into the intensity of Holly and Max’s physical attraction and their deep emotional connection.
The believable, uncomplicated plot with enough twists and dark moments to hold the reader’s interest makes this a fabulous read. I liked the setting for this story and the echoes of the couple’s past that resurface through the small cast of secondary characters.
Holly and Max are ‘no strings’ lovers. Neither wants commitment, until a life changing event makes them focus on what they really desire from each other and their future. There are lots of humorous and poignant moments. Are they prepared to take the risks and make the sacrifices necessary to find their happy ever after?
‘Employee of the Month’ is a tale of light hearted romance and angst. The characters are easy to empathise with. This is an absorbing page turning read.
