Blog Tour & Review ~ Inside the Office by FL Jacob

Inside the Office
Rumor Has It Series, Book 2
F.L. Jacob

Book Description:

I’m Liam Scott. I had everything. A good job, the perfect house, my dream girl that I was going to marry. I needed her to be mine, but fate had other plans. I watched her fall in love with someone else and my attempts to win her back just pushed her further away.

Left heartbroken, six months pass and fate revealed new plans for me.

Marissa Conner, a coworker and I, share an unexpected night of passion together. Things will never be the same as I realize I can’t walk away from her. Our whirlwind romance is compromised at every turn, testing our strength. Is she worth my job, worth the risk, when office policy is against us?

Realizing Marissa is my new dream do I dare risk my heart again, and with her?

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4 stars
***ARC received for an honest review***

“You’re making it very difficult to be a gentleman.”
“Who asked you to?”

This is another short story from FL Jacob and if you have read Behind the Computer you will recognise Liam as the man that Sawyer left for her cover model. I have to admit, in Behind the Computer I thought Liam was a bit of an ass, but after reading his story my perception of him really changed and I actually felt sorry for him. It just goes to show that there are two sides to every story. However, this is fate at its finest as Liam definitely hadn’t met “the one.” The one comes in the form of Marissa and while this was a tad insta-lust I have come to expect it in shorts. But what the author lacks in word count is definitely made up in an addicting read that will have you rooting for this couple from the very beginning.

“I’m in trouble.” ~ Liam
“How much do you need and where do I need to send the bail money?” ~ Zach
“…I think I’m on a date.” ~ Liam

While Liam and Marissa work in the same office they had never really noticed one another. Liam had been working his fingers to the bone and his head rarely came up for a breather, but it is a chance encounter outside of work that puts these two on one another’s radar. Their chemistry was palpable, their connection was undeniable, office politics…a whole new ball game.

I have to say that the office part of their relationship was handled extremely well, the bedroom was combustible and the easy flowing banter and friendship that these two manage to develop in such a short space of time will leave you in no doubt that these two belonged together. While Liam had been moping around for months after the demise of his relationship he soon gets that twinkle back in his eye and the change in him as soon as Marissa comes into his life and his bed was astounding. Marissa brought out the real Liam and I loved what I saw.

“The way that Marissa and I moved together was so freeing. It didn’t feel robotic or uncertain; it felt like we’d known each other forever and it was just another day that we couldn’t keep our hands off each other.”

Marissa was a tad shy and introvert in the office, she kept her head down and herself to herself, but Marissa had a wild side, especially between the sheets. Liam had certainly met his match with her, but Liam gave her confidence and made her shine so they really did complement each other beautifully.

I also loved Liam’s relationship with his best friend and colleague, there was one conversation that had me chuckling for an age, reminiscent of a similar conversation me and my husband have had in regards to our own daughter.

“Boys would be so much easier; you only have to worry about one dick with boys but with girls you have to worry about all of them.”

So, if you are looking for a quick read that will steam up your kindle then this is the ideal book for you. Fun, flirty and hot and if you haven’t read Behind the Computer I can highly recommend that one too.
