Book Information:

My boss and I are quarantined while on a business trip. And he says he knows just the way to pass the time.
I never knew my hot, rich boss knew I existed. Until he asks me to accompany him on a business trip.
He needs a paralegal for a deposition in Hawaii. I can’t help but hope he might have other motivations.
And I’m soon day dreaming about him capturing my heart. I tell myself not to be silly- I couldn’t possibly be that lucky. But while we’re at the hotel pool, he mentions my curvy figure.
As we work together, I wonder if he’ll say or do more. Then our business trip gets interrupted before we fly back. That’s when we hear news of a pandemic spreading.
We have to stay put, in our hotel room, until more is known. It’s then I find out he has the same thing in mind that I did. And lots of work for me to do, even though the deposition is over.
I start to wish we could stay in this island paradise forever. And he sounds like he wants the same. But now I’m really being silly, right?
Could we really risk our careers to be together? Is this just a quarantine fling while we’re stranded?
Or could we have a happily ever after in real life on the mainland?

Chapter 1

Mary

I usually like my job, but there are definitely downsides to it. Being a paralegal can be very tiresome and tedious sometimes.

I don't like being cooped up in the office all day long. I'm glad that at least I have a meeting with my boss this morning; it will break up the monotony. It's a last-minute thing, but he told me it was important.

I know it's going to be difficult to concentrate around him. Randall Marsh is the most handsome partner in the firm, and I have a secret crush on him. Being around him is definitely a plus to this particular job.

I fuss with my hair and clothes, then hurry to his office. I pause to knock on the open door, and he waves me to him. I walk in and stand before his desk, but he doesn’t say anything at first.

I nervously tuck a strand of hair behind my ear before asking, "You wanted to see me, sir?"

He looks up from the file he is reading, as if realizing for the first time that I’m here. I get chills as he stares right at me, glancing up and down as if he likes what he sees.

"Yes. I’ll be flying out to Hawaii in a few days. I have to take a very important deposition and I'd like for you to accompany me," he announces.

I want to open my mouth in shock, but I know I can't.

I need to be professional.

So, instead, I reply, "Yes sir," in as serious of a tone as I can manage.

I want to scream and jump in excitement, but I control my enthusiasm. It's a really big deal for a junior employee to be asked to be a part of something important like this. It's also very exciting. A small part of me is kind of nervous about it though, thanks to the crush I have on this man. He stares at me a few moments longer, then goes back to the file he is reading.

"I'll give you the exact dates and more information later," he says, in a tone that indicates I am being dismissed.

"Very good, sir," I chirp as I back out of his office.

I hurry to my desk and sit down. Then I pull out a notepad and pen and start writing a list of things I need to do to prepare for the trip. I have to make sure I am well-prepared. I don't want to mess up my job.

Career-wise, being asked to go away with the boss is a huge honor. I'm sure that if other people in the office knew, they'd probably all be jealous. I pause my writing, and chew anxiously on the tip of my pen. I feel pangs of desire stir in me, as a sudden daydream pops into my head. I picture myself in a gorgeous bikini, strolling the tropical beaches. My boss is next to me and his hands are all over me. The idea alone is enough to make me wet.

I'm shocked by the thought, because I hadn't realized that my flame for him was that strong. I remember the way he sometimes looks at me when I'm in his office – how he takes in my whole body like he just had when I was in his office – and I wonder if he gets as turned on around me as I do around him.

Then I shake my head and laugh. That is ridiculous. There's no way that someone as gorgeous as him would be interested in someone like me.

Besides, this is a business trip. That means the right attitude will be professionalism and nothing else. I finish making my to-do list, then take a bathroom break.

As I'm washing my hands, my mind starts to wander back to my daydream. We are alone on the beach. The waves splash behind us. The sun glimmers on our bodies.

Suddenly Randall strips off our clothes and lays me down in the sand. He makes wild, passionate love to me for the first time in my life. I feel myself growing warm and wet. I splash cool water on my face and take a deep breath. I need to calm down.

Someone else walks into the bathroom, distracting me from my thoughts. I hurry out and head to the break room. I need a cup of coffee, plus I want to avoid the area near my boss's office for a while. I need to get my head straight.

After that coffee break, I feel better. I go back to my desk and am finally able to focus. I finish up work early, then spend the next few hours gathering the papers and files that we will need for our trip.

I take my to-do list and stuff it in my purse. Everything on there can be done on my personal time. It's mainly stuff that I need to pack and take care of at home.
