Had you ever been involved in an office romance? Did it inspire you more to do well in your job? About those bad days, did it ever had an effect on the performance of your job?
Dirty Deeds by J. L. Beck is the second stand alone book to her An Office Romance series. I have not read the first but offered to review an ARC of this second book. As the series title imply, this is in fact about office relations. About having deeper feelings with your boss than just the employer-employee relationship.
The book is very fast-paced. No non-sense. It does not linger on unnecessary dialogues or scenes. So straight to the point that a lot of things happened already even on the first meeting of the two main characters. I like that the characters are really honest of what the feel for each other. Not a lot of drama which is actually nice. The length was enough. And it being a stand-alone, it ended well which I think most readers would find satisfactory.
I give this book three stars. It was okay. The ending was good. I did not find it abrupt considering it being a novella. Readers are given enough closure to move on from the story.
To the people that assume the worst of us, when they know the least about us.
