Getting sidetracked by a lift that stops on her way to a meeting with the company’s CEO, Miranda the spokesperson for her co-workers doesn’t except to have a quickie with a stranger. Things go from exciting to crazy when she sees that the total stranger is none other than Justin Hale, the CEO and her boss. Steamed that she’s been played by this devastatingly attractive man who she can’t seem to say no to. These two find themselves more out of their clothing than in as they christened every place at the company they have access to. Used to being alone and unsure of her feelings, Miranda fights hard to keep Justin at arms length, but Justin is in it for keeps and he won’t settle for anything less than love.

I can’t help but wonder if this is a true story with names changed to protect the guilty. J Because I Can is a romp filled delight with plenty of engaging characters and witty dialogue to make this story wiz by. Miranda is tough as nails, but soft as putty when it comes to enjoying all that Justin has to give. A man who knows what he wants and doesn’t waste time second guessing himself it was refreshing to see someone so willing to take a leap of faith and allow love to have its way. I loved the regional dialogue used in this story and also thought the realism of the workers added a depth to this story that was appreciated. This is my first taste of Amarinda Jones’ work but hopefully not the last.
