When it was announced that Sara Ney and Meghan Quinn were writing a book together, I was immediately all for it. Then I read that blurb, and I was even more in. Drunk messaging your boss…goldmine!
Scroll down to read a short excerpt and my full review.
I open the company messenger app on my phone and scroll through the executive names, knowing full well I’m about to break a policy. It’s the company’s phone, and the company’s app, and I’m about to use it for personal use. To flirt.
With my boss.
I close my eyes, find his name—next to it is a little, green dot, which means. . .
He’s on the app.
I’ve never talked to him live before so this is a huge step, but then again, it might be more fun to get his initial reactions to my comments.
Debating it for all but two seconds, I type out a message to him, making sure I’m signed on under my LSY persona.
HandsRomingMyBody: Hey you.
My text turns into a new message on the app and I wait on bated breath to see if he will respond. Nerves prickle up my spine, my fingers feeling numb, my mind playing mutiny with my heart just as little dots appear letting me know he’s typing.
Oh God, I don’t think I’ve been more excited.
By Sara Ney & Meghan Quinn
Love, Sincerely, Yours
Dear Mister…**strike out** no, too formal.
Hey there sweet cheeks *strike out* no, too forward.
To whom it may concern,
Full disclosure; before we move forward with this email, I would like it to be known that I have consumed an adequate amount of alcoholic beverages to intoxicate myself tonight. Three margaritas, two shots, and one beer—because it was free.
I think it’s important to be open and honest with your co-workers, don’t you?
So here I am, being honest. Drunk but honest. Or just drunk with lust? You decide.
I like you so much it’s clouding my judgment and making me do things I never would sober. Like write this letter.
I have a hopeless, foolish, schoolgirl crush on you when you are the last person on earth I should be falling for. Did you know people around the office call you a sadist? An egomaniac. An insensitive, arrogant prick. Your bark is worse then your bite, and you don’t scare me. The fact is, I’d love that bite of yours to nip at my bare skin while we’re both wearing nothing but sheets.
For once I want you to look at me as more than one of your employees.
And as long as we’re being honest, that navy blue suit you wear? With the crisp white shirt? It really makes me want to loosen your tie and show you who’s boss.
Nothing ever goods comes from anonymously drunk messaging your boss. Though it does help when you already quit job. That is exactly the situation Peyton finds herself in. A secret crush on her boss, fantasizing all the things they could do in his office, and an excellent drunk birthday celebration, it’s only the start of one exciting two weeks notice.
The back and forth messaging between Peyton and Hunter was hilarious. How she was able to push all his buttons, while he tries to find out who she is. Hunter was clueless. A workaholic, who was shook by one simple message. What starts as an almost frustrating distraction, quickly turns into something he looks forward to.
Love, Sincerely, Yours by Sara Ney and Meghan Quinn was fun, flirty, and a blast. An excellent book to get lost in for a couple of hours, and that will leave you with a big smile.
