Excerpt: Copyright © 2018 Off Limits by Clare Connelly
I am holding my breath again. Is that how I’m going to get over this little hurdle? Suffocate myself? Is that even possible? I’m pretty sure we have some breathing trigger in our brains, but my brain is a bit pissy with me so maybe it would conveniently forget about the button.
I push air out consciously, quietly, and he takes his seat.
‘Anyway…’ I prompt impatiently.
His smile is a clicker. Is he laughing at me? Arrogant arsehole! That’s be just like him. See? That’s the problem! I know him. I’m not one of his other women. I know that is he as bastardy as he is sexy.
‘How did you sleep?’
I blink at him, my eyes wide. ‘You’ve already asked me that.’
‘You didn’t answer.’
I except a sign that speaks of anger. ‘Like I always do. Seriously, Jack. My desk is covered in paper. I have to get to work.’
‘I’m your work,’ he says with a shrug.
He leans forward, and while his face is casual there is an urgency in the flecks of gold that fill his eyes. ‘Did you see him last night?’
I want to remind him of the salient fact I pointed out the night before. It’s not his damned business. But I’m not sure I can say that with such conviction now that I’ve tasted his mouth; now that I’ve been stunned by his desire.
Can I skirt around his question?
‘You’re my work? Okay, the thing is I have the New York guys waiting on contracts, you have a meeting in a week that I have to prepare for and Athens wants your input-which means my input- on a lease agreement. And I need to – ‘
God! Don’t hate me, but when he’s bossy I love it. And he’s almost always bossy.
I glare at him across his desk; it’s best if he doesn’t know that this is just about my favourite version of him.’

Clare Connelly grew up in a small country town in Australia. Surrounded by rainforests, and rickety old timber houses, magic was thick in the air, and stories and storytelling were a huge part of her childhood.
From early on in life, Clare realised her favourite books were romance stories, and read voraciously. Anything from Jane Austen to Georgette Heyer, to Mills & Boon and (more recently) 50 Shades, Clare is a romance devotee. She first turned her hand to penning a novel at fifteen (if memory serves, it was something about a glamorous fashion model who fell foul of a high-end designer. Sparks flew, clothes flew faster, and love was born.)
Clare has a small family and a bungalow near the sea. When she isn't chasing after energetic little toddlers, or wiping fingerprints off furniture, she's writing, thinking about writing, or wishing she were writing.

After suffering the ultimate heartbreak Jack Grant has sworn off anything resembling love or anything other than a strings free relationship of convenience...but after one line crossing night with his assistant he can't help but want more. He knows starting something with Gemma is wrong on so many levels, but working alongside her day in and day out is far too tempting and torturous and as much as he knows he should say no, he can't help but say yes. And once he does there is no turning back...
Gemma Picton knows her boss has a lot of demons to deal with, losing his wife damn near killed him, and she wants to be the one to heal the brooding billionaire. But mixing business with pleasure is a huge "no-no" and crossing that line with him could potentially cost her everything... but she just can't walk away. Everyday she watches him, admires him, and constantly wonders what it would be like to get her hands on him... and one night when she gets the opportunity to find out she guiltily grabs the opportunity with both hands!
Off Limits is a dirty little tale brimming with scorching heat and heartfelt emotion that is certain to leave erotic romance readers craving more!! This was a new literary adventure for me, as it was my first story from this author, and I have to say her forbidden office romance read definitely impressed. From reading the synopsis I had a feeling it would be a hot one, and wow was it ever!! If you are looking for a quick read with lots of heat and emotion, then I highly recommend you pick this one up... it will give you everything you are looking for and so much more!!
