What it’s about:
I have a crush on my boss’ best friend.
At least it’s not my brother’s best friend.
Or my best friend’s brother.
Or… never mind. It’s all pretty cliche.
And worse? My boss’ best friend is his business partner. Which sort of makes him my boss too. Okay – it’s not sort of. It’s definite. Gabe Laurent is off limits. Totally off limits.
Which is fine. I make do with my imagination. He’ll never know. Ever. Unless my work bestie passes me an eighties-style teen movie sex quiz during a meeting and I fill it out.
And it ends up in Gabe’s hands…
Fling is a spin-off short story from Jana Aston’s Wrong Series. Ms. Aston’s humorous story telling continues in Sandra and Gabe’s tale. Even if you don’t remember those characters, or you haven’t read Ms. Aston’s prior books, you won’t have trouble jumping into the fun, flirty read.
Ms. Aston’s characters are all charming and relatable. None of them are perfect, and none are “broken” and in need of saving. They are each people you might know or wish to know. Take Sandra, for instance. She is high efficient and fun loving. She is a valued friend and employee who has been secretly crushing on the company’s CFO. Sandra is one of those characters that makes you wish you knew her in person. Ms. Aston’s comparison of Gabe as Clark Kent brings forth images of a dark-haired, handsome guy hiding behind nerdy glasses. You can’t help but wonder what sort of mischief he gets up to when those glasses come off!
This amusing office romance starts with a co-worker’s silly sex poll written on the back of an office memo and ends with a delightful epilogue that will leave you smiling and hoping for more glimpses of Sandra and Gabe in future Jana Aston books.
About the author: Jana Aston is the New York Times bestselling author of WRONG. She quit her super boring day job to whip up more books and is hoping that was not a stupid idea. In her defense, it was a really boring job.
