I have a crush on my boss’ best friend.
At least it’s not my brother’s best friend.
Or my best friend’s brother.
Or… never mind. It’s all pretty cliche.
And worse? My boss’ best friend is his business partner.
Which sort of makes him my boss too.
Okay – it’s not sort of. It’s definite. Gabe Laurent is off limits. Totally off limits.
Which is fine. I make do with my imagination. He’ll never know. Ever.
Unless my work bestie passes me an eighties-style teen movie sex quiz
during a meeting and I fill it out.
And it ends up in Gabe’s hands…
I knew just based off the synopsis of the book that Fling was going to be a fun read! I mean, who can resist a good falling for my boss’ best friend story? Not I.
Fling was a short read, which was perfect. Now this book, according to the author is an ode to the John Hughes’ well loved ’80s teen film Sixteen Candles. I loved Sixteen Candles and while this story does have a few elements which made the original an instant classic, Fling sets itself apart in a lot of ways too. For one, the characters are a lot older. Thank God! Second, this book was way dirtier and raunchier than the film, which made my pervy little heart happy. Plus the whole boss’ best friend angle gave this book a touch of the forbidden.
Jana Aston has certainly hit her stride with fun and flirty books in the past, and Fling is no exception. You can’t help but root for Sandra and Gabe find their happily ever after. Gabe was a wonderful albeit somewhat clueless hero in the beginning, and Sandra was the kind of character you wanna be best friends with.
So if you’re in the mood for some short, sweet and sexy read this week, have a Fling–I mean, read Fling!

“What do you think of Sandra?” I ask Sawyer as I snag a signed baseball from a display case along the far wall of his office. I settle into one of the guest chairs across his desk and toss the ball over my head before catching it again.
He’s reviewing something on his monitor and he pauses at my question and turns his attention to me. “You know she’s the best executive assistant I’ve ever had. Do you need her help with something? I thought you were happy with Preston?”
Somehow human resources only assigns me gay men or women old enough to have birthed me. I suspect that’s on direct orders from Sawyer. Dick.
I give the ball another toss and catch. “No, I meant, what do you think of Sandra as a woman?”
“I don’t,” Sawyer says, narrowing his eyes at me.
“She’s got a thing for me,” I say.
“She doesn’t,” Sawyer says dismissively and taps the mouse on his desk, intent on ignoring me.
“She does,” I insist. “She’s always looking at me.”
“Maybe she thinks you’re an idiot.”
That’s a distinct possibility. I’ve never been quite sure. Most of the time she ducks her head and calls me Mr. Laurent as she scurries past. It fucking turns me on, but I’m not sure if it turns her on or if she honestly just thinks I’m an asshole.
“I think she’s dating someone in marketing,” Sawyer adds while tapping on his keyboard, engrossed with whatever’s on the screen in front of him.
“They broke up over the summer,” I say confidently, leaning back in the chair and tossing the ball a little further in the air.
“How do you know that?” Sawyer stops typing and crosses his arms across his chest. He doesn’t look pleased with my knowledge of Sandra’s dating life; I think he views her like the little sister he never had. “What could you possibly want to do with Sandra anyway?”
I catch the ball as my brows raise in disbelief. “You need me to spell it out for you, buddy?” I lean forward in the chair and adopt a serious tone. “Sometimes, when two people are attracted to each other, they enjoy taking their clothing off together so they can—”
“Shut up,” Sawyer interrupts. “She’s not really your type.”
“Beautiful?” I question.
“Sweet,” he replies.
She is sweet, he’s right about that. I think about the paper burning a hole in my pocket and wonder again if it was hers. I’d like it to be hers. I think sweet Sandra has a hidden dirty side, and I’d really like to uncover it.
