When Rox was hired, she told her smoking-hot boss Cash that she was married, but she’s not. Now, three years later, she’s kind of accidentally living with him, and he’s being a perfect gentleman, dang it.
Everybody in the office said that Cash was a heartbreaker, that he’d bump her and dump her, so Rox decided not to become a statistic. She went out and bought herself some rings of the finest cubic zirconia so that she could work with Cash, who was several inches over six feet tall, emerald-eyed, ripped, gorgeous, his tailored suit clinging to his athletic body, sporting a British accent, and loaded.
It had seemed like such a good idea at the time.
But now, three years later, she and Cash have become friends. They travel together for work often, and they’re the best of buddies.
When Rox gets thrown out of her apartment, Cash insists that she come live with him until they can find her a place because that’s what friends do.
Now, even though everyone insists that Cash never goes after married women, something about him has changed. There are little touches, little slips, and Rox is more and more tempted to tell hunky, gorgeous Cash that she never was married.
And then he’ll take her and break her, and then he’ll walk away, and then she’ll lose her job, and she still hasn’t found a place to live.
And yet, every time he looks at her with mischief in his dark green eyes, every time they’re teasing and it somehow turns into tickling, every time she swats at him and somehow ends up in his arms, she wants so much to risk everything.
What’s a working stiff to do when she falls in love with her friend, the boss?

Customer ReviewsSee All
I enjoyed the characters & plot lines. As the title suggest, the author's voice is like that of a friend speaking in your mind.
This is a fun book with comedy, sexual tension, steamy romance, a little suspense and was just really a great read. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will buy the next in the series.
Working Stiff - Loved It!
Working Stiff is the great story of Casimir and Rox. This is the start of the various series of books about billionaire friends who meet the love of their lives.
The sub-characters in this book are brought in slowly to the well-written, sexy, plot twisting story of Casimir and Rox, a lawyer and paralegal team working in a California firm. The story rapidly develops so that you are always wanting to see what’s going to happen next. The sub-characters spin off to their own stand alone book or bundle.
I like this story for it’s interesting, well-written story line, it’s length (much longer than most), and its readability (lack of typos).
If you’re looking for a fast paced sexy romance with a HEA, in my opinion, this is a great one to read!
