The sexual tension is palpable; the erotic path they’re on is inevitable.
Haylee Holloway has experienced more grief than a twenty-two year old should have to endure. When she moves to LA for a fresh start and takes a job as an assistant for an advertising company the last thing she expects is to have to step in last minute during a photo shoot as the model. Her bikini line and weight are suddenly open topics of discussion, and a client’s million dollar campaign is hanging in the balance. To cap it off, the multi-millionaire, gorgeous owner of the company shows up and takes charge.
Josh Singer, the owner of Gamble Advertising is private, intense, and hard to read. His voice is sexy, his eyes are smoldering and when he learns of Haylee’s goal to save money for law school, he makes her an offer she can’t refuse:
To move to New York City and work for him directly as his assistant.
Haylee’s dilemma: how does she travel the world with a hot boss whose voice alone conjures up an erotic fantasy and not completely make a fool of herself? Frustrated with Josh’s mixed signals, Haylee finally puts it all on the line. Blurring both their professional and personal lives can they keep things temporary as planned or will they both realize some things weren’t meant to end?

I loved this book!
Haylee wants to pursue her dream of becoming a lawyer and to do so she’s willing to work hard to get there. When she’s basically thrown into a modeling job she reluctantly does it to make her boss happy, but when his boss takes an interest and offers her an opportunity that no one in their right mind would turn down she only has one reason not to take it.
“No, but tell me, what is holding you back from taking this opportunity?”
Before I could filter my response through the tiny sober part of my brain, I responded, “That I’m way too attracted to you for you to be my boss.”
Only problem with Josh offering Haylee a job is that he’s attracted to her too. He doesn’t trust easily and doesn’t want to admit it, which opens up a lot of interesting developments between them. He’s hot one moment and cold the next. He even says things sometimes that just contradict his overall actions and words.
“It’s nice to meet you, Mr. Velas.”
“Oh, no, the pleasure is all mine, and you must call me Roberto. And you are?”
Josh answered for me, clearly done with the fawning. “This is Haylee, and she has a boyfriend.”
Meeting his eyes, I had to bite lip to keep from laughing out loud. He was using my sexual harassment lie.
Their relationship is incredible and sweet and turbulent and sad, just like any relationship. Nothing’s perfect, but in the end they sure are close.
The game they play, Tell Me Something, is pretty incredible. I think I may adopt it into my love life.
Tell Me Something is sassy and sexy. It’s filled with uncertainty and internal struggles, but laced with humor, love, and a few kinky sex scenes. The characters are easily related to and quite lovable. Parts of the storyline I’ve read before, but when put together they form something completely unique.
My Favorite Laughable Moment: Never let looks deceive you. Haylee is a lot smarter than people give her credit for. She’s also very verse in other languages.
“Is that your fuck-you-I-knew-Chinese-all-along dress?”
