She’s never given a happy ending before, but there’s a first time for everything.
Dawn has had it with Anastasia. Ever since Dawn started as a massage therapist, Anastasia has made it clear that she’s the kind of boss who doesn’t take any excuses. In fact, Anastasia recently fired a girl for doing things to clients that weren’t exactly on the menu.
When Blake is referred there by a co-worker, Dawn finds an attractive man walking through their door. After Anastasia yells at Dawn for being late, Dawn can’t help but consider ways to get back at her. She comes up with an idea that would really make Anastasia mad, and it’s one where she gets to have some fun too.
Blake comes in for a massage, but ends up getting much more than he bargained for.

Goes down as the first off my 2018 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – A short story.
Calm and serene into something a whole lot hotter. A massage that had a very happy ending for both parties involved, even without that being the plan to start with. Both seem to have a lot of fun and if Dawn’s mindset is anything to go by I don’t think the fun will stop there. Seems the thrill of being caught by her boss means she wants to have a little fun and Blake is not going to complain one bit.
Blake has clearly been feeling run down with of his job. Under stimulated means boredom is soon to step in. Seems with this boredom comes a need to do something a little reckless. Something like sneaking into his colleagues’ office and taking a drink of his bourbon. If Warren can get away with having some in his coffee then he should get some too. All good until he wakes up and catches him. With the fact he was asleep at his desk he really doesn’t have a leg to stand on work ethics wise. Seems he wants to help out with Blake’s boredom by giving him a card to a massage parlour that gave him a ‘special’ ending. His thinking that if one girl did it then the others might too. Blake at first has no intention on usually the referral card but you know that temptation is going to get the better of him.
Dawn loves her job but clearly hates her stuck up boss. A few minutes late and she knows she’s going to get an earful. Thankfully she is saved from it turning worse with the arrival of a new customer. One that makes her mind wonder into all sorts of interesting places. When its clear that he has been given a card and an impression of the types of massages he could get – being very wrong with the place – she decides to give him one on the house to apologize for the misinformation. Has nothing to do with the fact she really wants to get her hands on him. Seems he is a first timer so doesn’t know what he should keep on or rather take off – that being everything. A simple massage to start with when he is lying on his front but when the tent she creates so he can turn over to his back stays very much in the air after she drops the sheet back down her mind definitely starts to wonder more. Just what could she do to get her boss to go crazy and yell at her. I think she can think of a few things and Blake is more than happy to let her. He might be shocked by the turn of things to start with but they were heading in that direction the moment his body decided to have that kind of reaction to her magic hands.
Blake is happy to have his pesky knots taken care of by Dawn’s magic hands but its when they start to wonder further a field that he gets the true magic he has been missing, her too as its not just her hands that are magic. The thrill of getting caught and having to stay quiet and then not really be able to is what helps create a fun connection between the two of them. Not a lot of dialogue between the two but this one is more about what their bodies are saying anyway and I think they are going to want to continue talking for a while to come.
