About this ebook

Advertising guru Olivia Masterson is all work and no play. But on the eve of earning her dream promotion, her best friend dares her to let loose for one night and seduce a sexy stranger. Olivia's worked her ass off to get where she is—why the hell not?

Cole Bennett never thought he'd run into his feisty one-night stand at the office, furious that he stole her promotion. No matter how hard she tries to ice him out, they can't seem to keep their hands to themselves...or their clothes on.

Olivia's talented—maybe even more than Cole—so when his dropped hints to the boss net her a promotion of her own, he's ready to celebrate...until she accuses him of fueling office rumors that she slept her way to the top. She wants to earn her own way? Fine. So what the hell does a guy have to do to permanently melt an ice queen?

Each book in the Risky Business series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

An excellent fun sexy quick read. Very well written and with characters that are intriguing although I did find Olivia annoying and petulant at times. After an incredible one night stand Cole and Olivia find themselves face to face in the office and the realization that Cole just took the job/partnership Olivia had been vying for. While their chemistry is still off the charts, the animosity pouring off Olivia makes it difficult to really move forward. A great story and I definitely recommend it.

Once Upon a Date is a steamy workplace romance. The one night stand that got away turns up the next day. Fighting list and egos takes up almost as much time as their day jobs. It's naughty fun. Once Upon a Dare was a great way to immerse myself in a workplace romance with out the drama of real life. ☺ So kick off the offending heels, put your feet up, and cut loose with a Dare...

Loved this book! It's sexy and fun, with characters that made me care about their story. Olivia is a bit too rigid and focused on her career when a dare leads to a one night stand with Cole....then, on Monday morning when she thinks she's meeting with her boss to receive her promotion, instead she learns that Cole has taken her partner promotion..... This entertaining premise leads to an engaging and sexy novel as Cole and Olivia fight their attraction to each other, even while forced to work together. More importantly, Olivia struggles with her attraction to the man who took her job and thinks he knows what's best for her. If you enjoy the genre, you will love this book. I'm looking forward to reading more books by this author.

About the author

Jennifer Bonds writes sizzling contemporary romance with sassy heroines, sexy heroes, and a whole lot of mischief. When she's not writing or wrangling toddlers, Jennifer can be found curled up with a good book and a bottle of wine. While she'd like to tell you she's always loved reading, it just wouldn't be true.

In second grade her mom had to bribe her to read (and learn multiplication tables), but by the time she reached middle school she was hopelessly addicted. Amazingly, it didn't help her popularity level, but did inspire her to write her first book, which (thankfully) is buried in the basement where it will never see the light of day.

Ten years of professional insanity and one MBA later, Jennifer decided to take a chance and pursue her dream of writing. Because, honestly, what could be better than spending your days reading and writing swoonworthy romance?

Jennifer lives in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where her overactive imagination and weakness for reality TV keep life interesting. She's lucky enough to live with her own real life hero, two adorable children, and a pair of rambunctious dogs. Loves Buffy, Mexican food, the Winchester brothers, and all things zombie. Sings off-key.
