FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE LOVING ON THE EDGE NOVELS, THE FIRST IN A SENSUAL NEW SERIES
Overtime has never felt so good…
Marin Rush loves studying sex. Doing it? That’s another story. In the research lab, Marin’s lack of practical knowledge didn’t matter, but now that she’s landed a job at The Grove, a high-end, experimental sex therapy institute, she can’t ignore the fact that the person most in need of sexual healing may be her. 
Dr. Donovan West, her new hotshot colleague, couldn’t agree more. Donovan knows that Marin’s clients are going to eat her alive unless she gets some hands-on experience. And if she fails at the job, he can say goodbye to a promotion, so he assigns her a list of R-rated tasks to prepare her for the wild clientele of The Grove’s X-wing.
But some of those tasks are built for two, and when he finds Marin searching for a candidate to help her check off her list, Donovan decides there’s only one man for the job—him. As long as they keep their erotic, off-the-clock activities strictly confidential and without strings, no one will get fired—or worse, get attached…
Exclusive to this edition only—a bonus short story

5 Orgasm Whisperer Stars ⭐️

After accepting a position as a therapist at The Grove, a high-end, experimental sex therapy institute, Marin Rush quickly realizes that her fear of being out of her element is spot on.  And faking it until she makes it will not apply to this role….

Dr Dominic West is a well renowned sex therapist to the rich and elite.  Tragedy from his past has left him cold, cynical and closed off to relationships.  But if one is looking for counselling, alternative therapies or just pure satisfaction, he’s an expert in his field.

By coincidence these two shared a past from a previous lifetime ago.  A romance cut short by unforeseen circumstances. But neither forgot the friendship and passion they briefly embraced.

“Once upon a time, I hung out with this hot girl who was way too young for me. She was smart and funny and kept me distracted during a really shitty time in my life. We flirted, we laughed, and we had sex. I have fond memories of all three.”

Although Marin is a perfectionist and a quick study, her lack of sexuality makes her new role awkward.  For both personal and selfish reasons, it’s in Dominic’s best interest to see Marin succeed.   Dominic soon finds himself offering Marin his mentoring services both professionally and personally. And the best form of experience is exposure….

So begins a sensual exploration of intimacy, lust and fantasies (so delicious to read), until they both realise exactly how much more they could be to each other.

“This was going to happen. Marin wanted him in her bed—to teach, to explore, to show her things she’d only fantasized about. She wanted raw, gritty sex. And she wanted to do it with him. Holy fucking gift from above.”

Off the Clock is one of my favorite books of all time.  I absolutely adore anything that Roni Loren writes.  She has the knack of writing erotically intelligent smut that just cranks my dial and this book was no exception.  I loved the premise of this story, the sizzling chemistry between these two characters, the intricacies of their personality’s and the absurdity of the story line….  I would reread this in a heartbeat.
