Agony/Ecstasy Anthology: Just Say Yes by HelenKay Dimon


My first HelenKay Dimon stories were the collection of novellas in Viva Las Bad Boys!. I’ve always felt that HelenKay Dimon is very good at creating a lot of emotion and fun dialogue in shorter lengths. “Just Say Yes” is a little different office romance. Colin and Allie sit on opposite sides of the desk. Allie’s on the power side and Colin is her subordinate and while Colin has no problem recognizing his role in the office, he’d like something more. “They’d had eight months of foreplay and one night of sex. He vowed to adjust that imbalance.”

She craved this. Day after day, sitting in boring conference rooms and never-ending staff meetings, watching him explain and negotiate, she wanted him.

At home, or in any safe place where she could close her eyes and steal a moment, she imagined the broad slope of his shoulders and the pleasures promised by those lean fingers. At the office she lived for the peppery ginger scent that tickled her senses during those dangerous times when she got close enough to smell him.

Colin Banks. Brown hair bordering on black, soft gray eyes and a voice so deep it vibrated down to her toes with every syllable. He was completely off-limits. And he was seconds away from being inside her.
