In Love With Lucy by C.C. Wood Blog Tour

Lucy Daniels’ dreams are finally coming true. After three years of working for one of the youngest, most ambitious CEO’s in Dallas, she has the opportunity to leave it all behind and begin her career as a photographer.

Lucy’s girlfriends think she’s nuts for leaving a job that pays well and includes a boss who doubles as eyecandy. What they don’t know is that Christopher James Barden the Third may be pretty to look at but he has a giant stick up his ass.

However, Lucy is about to discover that Chris Barden has been fighting his attraction for his gorgeous, extroverted assistant since she started working for him. Now that she intends to leave, she’s fair game. Because Chris has wanted Lucy for a long time and he always gets what he wants.

*This novella is the first in the Not Safe For Work series. Each book contains a HEA for the hero and heroine.*

Where to start? From the word go, I enjoyed this book. As soon as I started, I wanted to know if there would be a second book and who it would be about. I held my questions until the end. Well most of them. This book is a great read. It's funny, sexy, hot, and most likely something I could and would read again. And I'm not big on re-reads.

Here's a little quote from the book....

He glanced down at my phone, then his eyes widened as he stared at the screen. I snatched it up to see that Tanya's newest message was a picture of an enormous purple double penetrator dildo and her message read, “You are obviously in need of this.”

Another great read by C.C. Wood. I'll be waiting impatiently for the next book in the series.

Just call her the Queen of Denial.

After working for Chris for 3 years, Lucy had no idea that he was attracted to her nor did she allow herself to entertain any thoughts beyond the employer-employee relationship with him. This wasn't actually surprising as he had shown her he could be a major PITA and had a string of short-term relationships. So when she is close to realizing her personal dream and gives her notice, she finds herself dealing with a change in their relationship that she never saw coming and the gloves come off.

Needless to say, I freaking loved this book. The interactions between Chris and Lucy are hilarious. Both have strong personalities and while Lucy might be his assistant, she doesn't hesitate to put him in his place. This makes for a very entertaining read and some serious sexual tension. And Ms. Wood does not disappoint when these two finally get together. What is it about a man in a suit that makes the sex that much hotter? Whew!

In Love With Lucy is a quick read that kept me entertained from beginning to end. I cannot wait until the next book in the Not Safe For Work series is released.

OH EM GEE... Chris Barden is the boss everyone dreams about -- except the woman that works for him. Lucy doesn't have time to deal with his crap or anyone else's. She's focused on doing her job as his assistant and of following her dream of being a professional photographer.

After three years of being his personal assistant, she has no idea that the man even likes her much less sees her in something other than a professional light. When she realizes that Chris does in fact notice her and for more than her typing skills, Lucy figuratively runs for the hills.

Even her friends are on "his" side... what's a girl to do? Should she go with the flow and be his booty call? What happens if he wants more? Can she have a relationship and a career?

Read the book to find out how a smart-ass assistant and hard-nosed boss (according to Lucy) make their way along the bumpy path of love.

Lucy took a job 3 years ago with an unbearable boss in hopes of saving money to really pursue her passion, photography. Fast forward 3 years, Lucy’s dreams are about to come true and then Christopher James Barden the Third comes to her show and everything changes after that. Three years of pent up attraction comes out and takes you on an entertaining ride with Chris and Lucy.

Characters: The characters are so loveable and they feel just like friends and family.
Sex: Oh yeah, hot and steamy
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Hopefully
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

This quick, sexy read is just perfect for an evening's entertainment. It is well written, fun and turns the tables for a change. I liked Lucy's friends, and hope that we meet them again - there were a few hints along the way!


A native Texan, C.C. grew up either reading or playing the piano.  Years later, she’s still not grown up and doing the same things.  Since the voices in her head never shut up, C.C. decided to try and profit from their crazy stories and started writing books.

Now that she has a baby girl at home, C.C.’s non-writing time is usually spent cleaning up poopy diapers or feeding the poop machine.  Sometimes she teaches piano, cooks, or spends time bugging her hubby and two beagles.
