On prom night, Dylan Anderson caused the biggest humiliation of Sadie Post's life. Getting over her crush on him took a while, but now she's grown up and moved on. Until Dylan moves in...to her workplace, that is. Suddenly it's high school revisited--complete with her lustful thoughts about him.
But she's his boss and finally has the upper hand--she won't let her sexy fantasies change that. Too bad the tension spiking between them is so high, it's inevitable they hit the sheets--or the nearest desk. And once they do, Dylan is better than she'd ever imagined. She promised herself to leave him begging for more...but does she really want to?

Excerpt from Take On Me by Sarah Mayberry
"SADIE, STOP FIDGETING. You're a bride. You're supposed to be serene and dignified," Claudia said.
Sadie grimaced apologetically. "Sorry. I just wanted to see," she said hopefully.
"Well, you can't. Not until I've finished," Claudia Dostis said firmly, returning to the task of lacing the corsetlike back of Sadie's ivory-silk wedding gown.
Sadie sighed and nodded, and her other bridesmaid, Grace Wellington, smacked her lightly on the shoulder.
"That includes your head, too," she said. Grace was trying to anchor a frothy veil into the upswept mass of Sadie's honey-blond hair.
"Does this mean I have to go back to bride-training school?" Sadie asked meekly.
"If you're very still for the next twenty seconds, we'll put in a good word for you," Claudia said.
They were her closest friends, as well as her work col-leagues and she trusted them implicitly, so she made a big effort to calm her nerves and stand docilely for the next few minutes as they continued to fuss. Finally, she felt a last tug around her middle, then Claudia let out a sigh.
"Me, too," Grace said.
They both stepped back and surveyed her with satisfaction.
"Nice work with the veil," Claudia said to Grace. "Not so shabby on the dress work, either," Grace said, re-turning the compliment.
Sadie raised an amused eyebrow. "Does this mean I finally get to look?"
Grace and Claudia grabbed a shoulder each and gently turned her around to face the freestanding mirror in the middle of her bedroom.
The woman facing her was a stranger, an elegant fairy princess in floating ivory silk, her blond hair swept into a sleek, sophisticated updo, her neck long and slender, her pale skin flawless, her large brown eyes dramatic and sexy.
"Wow. Is that really me?" Sadie squeaked.
"Yep. Gorgeous, as always," Claudia confirmed.
Sadie blushed at her friend's compliment, but a frown creased her forehead as her gaze inevitably drifted to her chest. It was pathetic, but she would probably never be one-hundred-percent happy with the size of her breasts, she admitted to herself. Too much baggage. Too long waiting around for the damned things to arrive in the first place. Who didn't develop breasts until they were nineteen, for Pete's sake? It was a form of cruelty, as far as Sadie was concerned.
"What's wrong? You hate the way I did the veil, don't you?" Grace asked, her clear green eyes clouded with concern.
Sadie pushed the old, old worry way. She was a B cup. Per-fectly respectable. It was because she was nervous--that was why such an old, dusty preoccupation had reared its ugly head.
"It's perfect, thank you. I was just wondering if I should have gone with a white dress instead of ivory," she fibbed.
Claudia made a rude noise. "Even ivory is pushing it, lady," she said knowingly.
"Hey!" Sadie said, pretending to be offended. "Are you implying I'm not a virgin?"
"I hope you're not," Grace said. "I'll have to take down all that stuff I wrote about you on the toilet wall."
They all giggled like idiots, then Sadie caught sight of the time and a jolt of adrenaline rocketed through her. The car would be here in twenty minutes.
"You guys had better get dressed," she advised.
"Remind me again how you talked me into this dress," Grace muttered as she unzipped the long, figure-hugging, strapless red sheath that had been tailor-made for her bombshell figure.
"Let me see, Because I am Bridezilla, and I must have my way?" Sadie suggested lightly.
"And because you were outvoted two to one," Claudia said as she slid into her pint-size version of the same dress. Although she was petite, Claudia's figure was still feminine, and the red fabric clung to her curves. With her olive skin and almost-black Greek eyes, she looked stunning.
