a brief act of sexual intercourse. – Source: Oxford American English Dictionary
At any rate, we all know they’re that intense and spontaneous moment when foreplay is defined as the quickie: the sex is red-hot and is entirely about getting in, getting it on, and getting out before you get caught. Not to be confused with the nooner, the quickie’s less spontaneous cousin, these transactions of the hit-and-run variety, conducted online, in a cubicle, in the knee-space of a desk, or a locker room, are made all the more combustible by that element of danger in being caught with your pants down—quite literally—and ups the ante, turning the risks into a roleplayer in the game.
Storm Moon Press has gathered all that erotic potential and put it together in a compilation of short stories about sex in the workplace, which has nothing to do with harassment and everything to do with heating things up when the 9-to-5 gets altogether dull.
Thirteen authors have contributed their individual takes on workplace romance, and include:
Skype Wars by Rob Rosen (M/M)
Hands On by K. Piet (F/F)
One Week by L. Alonso Corona (M/M)
Working Lunch by Ann Anderson (F/F)
Personal Assistance by K. Lynn (M/M)
She’s the Boss by Angel Propps (F/F)
The New Guy by John Amory (M/M)
Stair Walking by Harper Bliss (F/F)
1-800-Boredom by Raven de Hart (M/M)
Fair Play by Anna Hedley (M/M)
His Non-Existent Coffee Break by Lor Rose (M/M)
Tele-Romance by Erik Moore (F/F)
Three Strikes by Piper Vaughn (M/M)
It’s extra tempting to tell you what my favorite stories in this erotic collection are; yes, I did have a few favorites, but rather than do that, I’ll say in all honestly that each of them was sexy—sometimes playful, sometimes all business—in its own way, not to mention a few of them having some very nice little twists in roleplaying and role reversal, making them just that little bit more enjoyable for the effort.
I can say with some confidence that if the idea of quickie shots of caffeinated sex are your…err…cup of tea, you ought to find this anthology every bit as much fun as I did.
