Marin Rush loves studying sex. Doing it? That’s another story. In the research lab, Marin’s lack of practical knowledge didn’t matter, but now that she’s landed a job at The Grove, a high-end, experimental sex therapy institute, she can’t ignore the fact that the person most in need of sexual healing may be her.

Dr. Donovan West, her new hotshot colleague, couldn’t agree more. Donovan knows that Marin’s clients are going to eat her alive unless she gets some hands-on experience. And if she fails at the job, he can say goodbye to a promotion, so he assigns her a list of R-rated tasks to prepare her for the wild clientele of The Grove’s X-wing.

But some of those tasks are built for two, and when he finds Marin searching for a candidate to help her check off her list, Donovan decides there’s only one man for the job—him. As long as they keep their erotic, off-the-clock activities strictly confidential and without strings, no one will get fired—or worse, get attached…

“I could make you shameless, Rush.”

Off the Clock made my nerdy little heart go pitter-patter!

I’ve loved every book I’ve read by Roni Loren. They’ve mostly been from her Loving on the Edge series, so I was excited this is the beginning of a new series. Then to learn it’s about sex therapist made me even happier. Honestly, there are a lot of things to love. A lot.

I adored Marin Rush and Donovan West! I definitely connected more with Donovan, though. They had major chemistry from their very first interaction, and it only grew throughout the book. I love the whole set up, making it a bit of a forbidden romance. What I love best about them is they would burn the pages up with how smokin’ hot they were together, but at the same time they had a playfulness about them that had me totally grinning. Oh, and the games … yeah, those were very nice indeed.

Like with other Loren books, this had a fantastic ensemble of secondary characters. I got a kick out of Nathan and the many awkward moments between him and his older sister – Mari. And I might be in the minority, but I love Elle and hope like hell she gets her own book. Also, there’s a tiny connection to her other series that made me super giddy.

I really love everything about Off the Clock and look forward to more from the Pleasure Principle series.

  1. Oh this sounds great, Christy! I love the nerdiness and the playfulness that the couple has. I haven’t read anything by this author, but I’m going to add this to my TBR! 😀 It sounds too fun to miss out on.
    Great review, Christy! (Although, I’m not happy with you for making me spend more money and add more books to my TBR! 😉 )

  2. Seriously? Sex therapist? She studies sex but she needs sex help? What??? I don’t believe it! Really?! My eyes are bugging out my head. Okay, wait… I can see a lack of a playmate being a problem. This Donovan sounds fabulous – “tasks”!!! tee, hee! He can give me “tasks”. I should read this ASAP, huh??

    I can have conversations by myself all day….

  3. I’ve never read Loren, Christy, but you sure intrigued me with your review. It sounds like Donovan is an amazing scientist, and that there are a lot of things she can do when it comes to theory. I’m sure reading about her getting a grip on the more practical and hands-on parts of her theories was great 😉

  4. I haven’t read any of this author her books, but this one sounds great. And that’s interesting she’s a sex therapist. I am glad you felt the connectioon and chemistry between these two and it only got better the further you got. Great review!
