OFFICE MATE by Katie Ashley

Available Now



From the first time I played army as a kid, the military has been my life. As an Airborne Major, I’d led my men through two tours in Afghanistan. But when my father was elected president, I became an even greater target for the enemy—a prize for someone to take out. To ensure not only the safety of myself, but of my men, I got stripped of my cammies, shoved into an Armani suit, and placed into a management position at my father’s company. After years of trekking through the desert with an assault rifle, I was way out of my area of expertise, which my transition coordinator was more than happy to let me know on a daily, if not hourly basis. The brunette bombshell would be the death of me in more ways than one, especially since I hadn’t been with a woman since my last deployment. She’s turning out to be one of the greatest foes I’ve ever done battle with.


In the backwoods Georgia town I was born in, you either married right out of high school or got the hell out of town. I chose the second and never looked back. After graduating top in my class, I started working for The Callahan Corporation. Fast forward five years and I was about to become the youngest female manager in the history of my department. And then all the blood, sweat, and tears I’d put into my career were for nothing when the boss’s billionaire son was handed my position on a silver platter. Not only that, I was expected to help transition him into the job that was supposed to be mine. Sure, he’s easy on the eyes with his chiseled good-looks and impossibly built physique, but I’m not going to let that distract me. I hope soldier boy is good at military strategy because sabotage is the name of the game I’ll be playing.

My Review:

Isabel Flannery worked hard for everything she has ever achieved. Growing up in a small town in a double wide trailer taught her how important it was to fight for what you wanted in life. Isabel studied hard, got good grades, and finally her MBA. She landed her dream job at The Callahan Corporation after interning for them seven years ago. Now, all of her dreams and hard work were about to be paid off. She was about to get the promotion she so rightly deserved, Vice President in investment banking at The Callahan Corporation. Nothing could get in her way of the most perfect day of her life.

Thorn Callahan wanted nothing more to be a soldier. Being in the army was his life. It is what defined him as a person. But, now that his father is President of the United States, his life in the army has come to a complete stop. Being the president’s son put a huge target on his back and in turn put his comrades in danger. He is now a civilian and about to enter the workforce in his father’s company, Callahan Corporation.

Much to Isabel’s surprise, Thorn snatched the Vice President position right out from under her after their disastrous meeting outside the office building. Isabel’s luck just went downhill all due to the sexy President’s son.

Could their chance encounter outside the office building be the best thing that happens to Isabel and Thorn? Or will rivalry get the best of them?

Office Mate is a slow burn enemies to friends to lovers office romance that really turns up the heat. You can see the attraction Isabel and Thorn have for one another, but Thorn never mixes business with pleasure. To hide his attraction, Thorn turns into a complete douche to Isabel. In turn, Isabel retaliates in the funniest of ways which actually winds up bringing them closer together. As they get to know one another, Isabel and Thorn establish a friendship of sorts which leads to real feelings getting involved. It was really nice to for a change to not see two characters in insta-love. When they were not trying to one up each other, you could see the respect they had for one another which made the romance all that more believable and real.

I really loved both Isabel and Thorn. They are such well thought out three dimensional characters and I felt like I really got to know the both of them equally. Isabel and Thorn are down to earth, loveable, and deserving of a happy ending. Isabel and Thorn are probably one of my favorite book couples I have read about and come to love.

Katie Ashley really knows how to draw you into a story right from the beginning. I found myself laughing at the hijinks both characters partook in. There are also a lot of serious moments in the story and the transition from funny to emotional was done flawlessly. Office Mate is a delightful story full of charm and character that will hook you from the first page and never let up right until the very end. I wholeheartedly enjoyed and highly recommend you indulge yourself in this story. It is well worth the read.
