#71: Off The Clock - Kenzie Michaels (Giveaway Info)Tour schedule

Tour Schedule

Austin Harmon is intrigued by his quiet, efficient new administrative assistant. Why does she have an obsession with her watch, and what does she do after hours?

Cara has put her social life on hold while caring for her elderly mother. But after her boss helps her through a crisis, she can't deny their attraction. Romance and Alzheimer's don't mix... or do they?

An Anderson Chronicle Short Story.

Kenzie Michaels resides in the Midwest with her husband, three children, and various household pets. She is the 'wild child' of author Molly Daniels. They cohabitate nicely
inside the brain of a woman in Indiana who's the mother of three and 'Aunt
Molly' to the entire neighborhood. A devout chocoholic, her hubby has learned
to watch out when the characters in her head take over and not get too upset
when the words are flowing and all concept of time is lost. (LOL)



EXCERPT
Austin captured her once inside the darkened office and swung her into his arms for another kiss.  Her shoes hit the floor as she moaned, and felt his tongue slip past her teeth.
Cara struggled and tore her mouth from his.  “Wait. This can’t be happening.”
“Why not?  I’ve enjoyed the past two weeks of getting to know you.  I’d like to get to know you a little better, that’s all.”  Austin pulled her back and covered her mouth with his.
She hesitated a moment.  How long had it been since her last kiss?  It’d been two years since David had broken up with her, not understanding her responsibilities to her mother.  With a muffled groan, Cara tossed her purse to the floor and twined her arms around his neck.  Moisture pooled between her thighs as his tongue explored the corners of her mouth.  She eagerly returned the kiss, and was rewarded when one of Austin’s hands slid upwards to palm her breast.  Cara didn’t pull away; soon his cool fingers slid inside her bodice and nudged the lace of her bra aside.  She moaned when he rolled the nipple between two fingers and pressed herself closer to him.  Dimly in the background, she heard the vague tones of Bette Midler singing “Wind Beneath My Wings.”
“Wait. My phone’s ringing.  Austin,” she pleaded and forced herself to pull away.
“Can’t you ignore it?” He panted, reaching for her waist.
“I can’t.  This one is important.”



Kenzie will be awarding an eCopy of one of her back list to a randomly drawn commenter at each stop during the tour. An eCopy of Class Reunion and a $10 Amazon GC will be awarded to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour plus another randomly chosen commenter will win a $10 Freya's Bower GC. 


Review:
A perfect touch of romance, lust and love. The sex scenes were pretty intense, the romance had great build-up and the ending was pure bliss. Honestly, I'm surprised it was as good as it was with it being so short. I'd love to read on about these characters though. See where things end up say five or ten years own the road. 
Here is to hoping for more!


4/5

  6. Good, concise review. And that's such an intriguing question...Can Alzheimer's and romance mix? Interesting.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
