The Temp

Brandi Anderson isn't so sure she wants to accept the new temporary job at Mitchum Construction Firm she has been offered. Her car is in the shop and the prospect of taking mass transportation back and forth each day is an unappealing prospect. But one look at her new temporary boss, Link Mitchum, gives Brandi cause to pause and change her mind. Brandi and Link's attraction to each other is swift and undeniable. But as they embark on their new relationship, Link's former obsessive girlfriend, Sheila, enters the scene-and makes a huge scene! Brandi is disturbed by Sheila and senses all might not be over between the estranged couple. Reluctantly, Brandi breaks off her relationship with Link and seeks solace.

The Temp is a short story, somewhere between a sensual and erotic romance. The writing is clear and concise, the plot a bit predictable. The general story is lovely, but I like my romance, especially erotics, a bit more lacey and lilting. I know this is a short story, but I feel it deserved so much more. To me, it would have been a more powerful read if the author had fleshed out the characters a bit more and expanded the length.
