OFFICE MATE by Katie Ashley

Available Now



From the first time I played army as a kid, the military has been my life. As an Airborne Major, I’d led my men through two tours in Afghanistan. But when my father was elected president, I became an even greater target for the enemy—a prize for someone to take out. To ensure not only the safety of myself, but of my men, I got stripped of my cammies, shoved into an Armani suit, and placed into a management position at my father’s company. After years of trekking through the desert with an assault rifle, I was way out of my area of expertise, which my transition coordinator was more than happy to let me know on a daily, if not hourly basis. The brunette bombshell would be the death of me in more ways than one, especially since I hadn’t been with a woman since my last deployment. She’s turning out to be one of the greatest foes I’ve ever done battle with.


In the backwoods Georgia town I was born in, you either married right out of high school or got the hell out of town. I chose the second and never looked back. After graduating top in my class, I started working for The Callahan Corporation. Fast forward five years and I was about to become the youngest female manager in the history of my department. And then all the blood, sweat, and tears I’d put into my career were for nothing when the boss’s billionaire son was handed my position on a silver platter. Not only that, I was expected to help transition him into the job that was supposed to be mine. Sure, he’s easy on the eyes with his chiseled good-looks and impossibly built physique, but I’m not going to let that distract me. I hope soldier boy is good at military strategy because sabotage is the name of the game I’ll be playing.

My ARC Review:

This was a fab little read – an enemies to friends to lovers romance, a real slow burn but with sexual tension you could cut with a knife!

Isabel is a small town girl and has worked hard to get to where she is, and is determined to make it in the business world, in fact she is up for a promotion to VP in the Callahan Corporation. Except her day doesn’t go as planned, the VP job is given to Thorn Callahan, the son forced to give his military career for security reasons as his dad is now The President. He’s not best pleased to be here to say the least. Isabel is expected to show him the ropes – she’s fuming she didn’t get the job and is planning to get back at Thorn in some way to show him up as incompetent. Problem is the attraction between them is palpable, he’s a walking Adonis and she’s beautiful, fiery and sassy – so Thorn decides to play the douchebag card to keep her away, while Isabel comes up with some delightful ways to get back at him.

The push and pull between these two is fabulous, and Isabel’s ideas to get back at Thorn were really quite mean but they had me in stitches and hoping she could pull it off!!

Isabel is a real perfectionist at work, but out of work she is a loving and caring person, trying her best to help out her family and friends when needed. Thorn is angry at having to leave the military and has PTSD issues, but amazingly Isabel is the one person who sees right through him to all the stuff underneath he is trying to hide. His vulnerability is very endearing!

A fab little read, very funny and sweet with supportive loyal families make this all in all a very enjoyable read.
