A dangerous infatuation with a rough and ready man…
Erin Coffey has been a nurse for years, but nothing’s prepared her for the physical and emotional demands of her new position. Needing to move closer to her dysfunctional family, she takes a dangerous job at Larkhaven Psychiatric Hospital, where she quickly learns that she needs protection—and she meets the strong, over-confident coworker who’s more than willing to provide it.
Kelly Robak is the type of guy that Erin has sworn she’d never get involved with. She’s seen firsthand, via her mess of a sister, what chaos guys like him can bring into a woman’s life. But she finds herself drawn to him anyway, even when he shows up at her door, not eager to take no for an answer.
What Erin finds even more shocking than Kelly’s indecent proposal is how much she enjoys submitting to his every command. But he can’t play the tough guy indefinitely. If they want to have more than just an affair, both will have to open up and reveal what they truly need.

After taking care of her mother who had Alzheimer's Erin Coffey finally uses her LPN certification to get a job and be closer to her sister and nephew. Unfortunately, the only job she can get in the Larkhaven Psychiatric hospital. In over her head Erin meets Kelly Robak the strong, sexy, dangerous orderly and he teaches her what she needs to protect her from the patients.
Kelly is the kind of man she knows she should avoid but she can’t. He’s controlling and knows how to dominate a room, something that makes him good at this job. She finds herself drawn to him. What’s even more shocking is his proposal that she give herself to him for some hot sex… but she needs to submit to him.
I really, really liked After Hours. I think it had to do with the fact that I’m a nursing student and have spent some time on the psych floor. I found it relatable. I also loved that it was really just a story about two people meeting at work and getting together. Kelly and Erin have normal jobs. It was a nice change from the dominating billionaires that have flooded the romance world.
After Hours is dark and sexy. Watching Erin grow and find herself was nicely done. Seeing her learn who she is and what Kelly, and his demands, mean to her was amazing. I loved watching these two.
Also, Kelly is hot. Like smoking HOT! Why? Because of this:
“There’s four things a real man has to be able to do for a woman.”*swoon* Yep, that’s Kelly. And I love that.
“Exactly how many man-lists do you have?”
He let my wrist go and ticked the items off on his fingers. ”Fix her car. Grill her a steak. Kick the ass of any guy who makes her cry. And fuck her so hard she wakes up half crippled.”
