Isn't it strange how difficult it is to acknowledge how real an office romance can be and how it can affect the most hardened of hearts? For though it is studiously ignored, this most commonplace romance finds a way to just be––whether the ending is successful or not. After all, spending hours and hours working in proximity with people who share similar goals, passions and dreams together can easily develop into healthy or toxic relationships. Hate, Lust or Love are often the unintentional consequences of such entanglements.
In this humorous duo collaboration, "A FORBIDDEN LOVE", authors––Linda Lokhee and Reena Doss––explore the possibilities of an office romance. They unmask the cool surface of dormant feelings that have built up over time between a boss and his secretary. Behind those workaholic days and nights, the couple find it hard to ignore their carefully sealed fates. Will they make it through societal expectations as well as their own fears about the future?
