One of my favorite go to authors is Megan Hart, for this she is writing  "Crossing The Line".
First Impressions Ratings: 4 stars
5 Rules for Sexy Play in the Workplace!1. Know the company policy;—You just got an opportunity to finally snag that sweet corner office. The last thing you need is a wicked distraction….
2. Don’t date your boss—Sure, Jamison Wolfe has a smile that could send a woman into instant orgasmic joy. But more important, he’s your strict, control-freakish boss. Your hot, sexy, control-freakish boss.
3. Keep PDA out of the office—Okay, so you slipped up. Once. It was just the temptation of having Jamison at your complete naked mercy.
4. Prepare for the worst—This can’t go anywhere. You know it, he knows it. So why stop now?
5. Be discreet—Even when it gets more intense
. Even when you push every limit you both possess…
I loved the writing it really pulled you in, felt good without being overly descriptive.  As this is a contemporary world building isn't really needing, Four for making it realistic, I laughed when reading the names of the social sites since some of them are clearly supposed to be like the real ones vine/tumblr/twitter.

The pacing was good, gets to the point quickly, has enough tension to keep you interested and was actually pretty smoking when they got down to it.  I really loved how the characters develop, and how the story flowed.

This was very different from my normal erotica/contemporary with a strong power flip. It's barely defined for what it really is, but I loved it.  I knew I was going to love Caite when she told Jamison " You'd be pleased too, if you paid attention to it...You should pay better attention, Jamison".  I just knew it was on from then and I couldn't wait to read how they would work it out.  Jamison had himself a long journey and I loved when he was finally figured out how this was going to work, man did he put in the work.
Megan Hart
When she was in third grade, Megan Hart fell in love for the first time. Not with a boy (that would wait until fourth grade), but with a story. Homecoming by Ray Bradbury leaped out at her from the pages of a library book, and she tumbled head over heels. In the dark ages, before the days of photocopiers, the only way for her to keep a copy of this story was to copy it out by hand so she could read it over and over again. Something funny happened, though, as she carefully printed it on lined notebook paper.
She made "improvements."
At age twelve, reading Stephen King's The Stand for the first time one memorable summer, it occurred to her that people really did write books for a living. That's when she decided to become an author.
Megan began writing short fantasy, horror and science fiction before graduating to novel-length romances. In 1998, now a stay-home mom, Megan took up writing in earnest, attending her first writing conference and getting her first request for a full manuscript. In 2002 she saw her first book in print, and she hasn't stopped since.
She's published in almost every genre of romantic fiction, including historical, contemporary, romantic suspense, romantic comedy, futuristic, fantasy and perhaps most notably, erotic. She also writes non-erotic fantasy and science fiction, as well as continuing to occasionally dabble in horror.
Megan's goal is to continue writing spicy, thrilling love stories with a twist. Her dream is to have a movie made of every one of her novels, starring herself as the heroine and Keanu Reeves as the hero. Megan lives in the deep, dark woods with her husband and two monsters…er…children.

This is Sarah Morgan's contemporary addition to the series.  "Burned" takes on the concept of what would happen if you ran into your first love.
 First Impression Rating: 3.5
Every girl needs some self-defense. But at Fit and Physical, you’ll learn martial arts and get fit at the same time. Look great, feel better and kick a little butt! Check out one-on-one personal training with our favourite karate black belt, Rosie Miller. She loves her job, the world of martial arts, and her life is just…well, brilliant.
Trainer and martial artist Rosie Miller’s zen is seriously compromised when Hunter Black—her former coach and lover—becomes her new boss. With all the sexual energy still crackling between them, her poor little zen doesn’t stand a chance. So this time, Rosie is determined to do more than put up self-defense. She and Hunter are going to play by her rules….

As a contemporary we're in modern London and the authos' love of London comes through clearly as she makes it the playground for our characters.  The story was well written, flowed well and the sexy times were well written and steamy.  This is a great quickie romance that is paced well and had good time, not a quckie lust to love, but a renewed love story.

I liked that the character was a strong well rounded character in all of her life, her love life sucked but she knew that and was working on it in her own way.

For the characters we get almost nothing about Hunter until close to the end.  It's all from Rosie's point of view and her pov is pretty freaking narrow.  Other than her obsession with her flat chest, we don't get much description of herself or others so it's hard to create a frame of reference, which made it a little hard to connect to the characters.  Hunter kind of felt cardboard flat because we knew next to nothing about him except that he's a good looking man who inspires fantasies in Rosie's part.

Steamy on sexy times, I mean really steamy. I loved their connection which felt real and very raw.  I loved Rosie's thoughts she's funny as hell, but would have loved bearing from Hunter (I'm spoiled like that).  The only cons of this story I get that Rosie or Ninja as Hunter loves to call her,  is a karate enthusiast (as she's a teacher and does competitions) but ummm... how may women do you know who are going to be dressed to the nines in heels and everything and decides she's going to celebrate her birthday present by doing this??

In a tube hanging over London?? Let's be real??  That felt way too out there, still in line with character but still weird for 'reality'.  I loved that she even can be a little bit of an idiot and she was still obsessing over her past mistakes ( which I can totally understand).

Overall I liked the story, I just think it would have been better as a longer novel, give us more time to get to know them.
