Off the Clock
by Kenzie Michaels
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?
“Austin! Where did you find her?” His best friend Ryan clapped him on the back. “She’s fantastic, man! Nothing like Leslie.”
“She answered my ad in the paper. She’s my office assistant.” Austin Harmon took a sip of his drink and followed her with his eyes as she paused to speak with an elderly couple.
“You lucky dog! You banging her or is she taken?” Ryan adjusted his striped tie.
A flash of anger welled up. “Stay away from her,” Austin warned. “Leslie left my office records a mess and Cara finished sorting everything out today. She’s a dream come true.”
“I’ll say. And are you kidding? Andrea would string me up alive if she even caught me looking at another woman. I was just thinking of you, man.” Ryan smiled and held out his hand.
Austin shook it. “After the Leslie fiasco, no more office romances. Harmony House doesn’t need any more visits from the Health Department.”
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)

Off the Clock is office romance done right! I think that forbidden romance of a boss and his assistant has been written way too many times but it is still so addicting. You will be hooked from the minute you start this book.
I really loved the depth to Cara's character. She had so much going on in her life from her elderly mother, criminal brother, and trying to survive. It made her fluffy romance with Austin so much for fulfilling for the reader. You just want to root for Cara. I loved their relationship but we only just get to see the start of a romantic relationship.
If I have to say a complaint about this book is that it was way too short! Off the Clock is a novella and only around 44 pages. Which is crazy that there is so much story in 44 pages. I think this story could have been fleshed out to a full length book but that is because I want to read more of it!
If you love romance this is definitely a book for you. A quick read that has a lot of depth and great characters!
