See, at Club Masquerade, everyone wears a mask and a nametag with a fake name. Also, on your nametag is a number that you are assigned when you come into the club, which is linked to an in-house messaging system; no one is permitted to speak, which ensures that identities are kept secret. I meet my lover every Saturday at 9 pm sharp. We text and email constantly when we are not together, and I have somehow fallen in love with him.
But, then there is Nick Santino. He is the partner that I can’t keep my eyes off. Unfortunately, the only reason he hired me is because he is not attracted to me and all my frump glory. Fortunately, for me, I am a kick ass secretary, so he keeps me around. Like many men in his position, Nick is used to getting what he wants, when he wants it; all without commitment, of course.
So when he finds a woman that he is both physically and emotionally attracted to, he finds himself in unchartered territory – love. And I can do nothing but be jealous from the sidelines – lusting for a man I can’t have, and loving a man I can’t know.
Hey there, Delilah is book 1 of the Taboo Love series, in which we tackle the boss/secretary relationship. Each book will be a stand alone with a HEA, but will have a few reoccurring characters.
A 3.5 stars!!! Hey There, Delilah is a fun, hot, light read.
Delilah, a self proclaimed frumpy girl, caught her boyfriend doing the deed, doggie style, with her bitch of a boss. She quit her job (obviously) and dump her cheating boyfriend of (almost) 8 years!
In comes Nick Santino, she became the secretary of the gorgeous, rich, powerful, and mighty cocky controlling partner at Santino Law Firm. Delilah is definitely a goner.
Nick is a player - a love ‘em and leave ‘em kind of guy... and the only reason he hired Delilah as his secretary is because he isn't attracted to the frumpy girl. But he can't seem to get Delilah off his mind.
Till one night at Club Masquerade, where everyone wears a mask and a nametag with a fake name and no speaking permitted to keep ones identity, she hooked up with a hot guy named "Nico" a.k.a. Nick. And Nick, doesn't know Lala is Delilah.

LaLa #128: What r u waiting for?
Nico #812: Dance with me?
LaLa #128: I still don’t even know who u are
Nico #812: Turn around & look toward the bar.
I pretty much enjoyed this book! You get to read both's POV. Though Delilah appears to be smart and witty but her insecurity makes her act childish. And Nick? Well, his just hot! ;)
