The Rules of DNR: How to Survive Working for Cole Lawson

Do Not Respond emails are meant to be sent to yourself only—never to be re-read or responded to.
Vent about your mean boss and don’t focus on the scruff on his chin. Ignore the butterflies that flutter as he stares back at you and concentrate on his condescending tone.

I wish I’d listened.
I wish I’d never drank my body weight in vodka and sent him a venting email, telling him exactly what I really thought about his Lycra-wrapped package and the way he makes my body hum.

The last thing I needed was to break those DNR rules and send an email to my boss.

Work is about to get a lot more interesting. What have I got myself into?

Office romance can be fun...but, I have to believe the attraction between them is enough that the subordinate would be willing to risk her (or occasionally his) job to sleep with the boss.  I need to think the office is one where they wouldn't get caught, and if they did, there would be enough between them to get over the part where they were caught.

In this case, I believed the attraction between Cole and Letty.  They knew each other when they were younger, and now, well, the attraction has turned into dislike and a difficult working relationship.  Getting from that, from ex friends, to an office romance, to a couple who can work for the long haul was a little bit of a challenge, but they work it out, and the ride as the reader is a lot of fun.

This is my first read by M. R. Field, and I enjoyed it a lot.  I liked that she is an Australian author and this book had an Australian flair without feeling like I was reading something starring "Crocodile Dundee" which often happens.  I loved this element of it, and the different feel it gave this title.

Overall, I enjoyed it, I recommend it, and I am looking forward to the next title by this author.
