Teaser- Be My Valentine

Workplace relationships can be tricky and a source of concern for HR. 

What do you think about dating at work? Hell yes or No way?

In this week’s excerpt from Unexpected Love from the anthology Be My Valentine, Yemi is worried about socialising with her boss because she finds him attractive.


“Don’t go, Yemi,” he said again, his tone decisive. “Let’s have dinner. I am here; you are here. We are both dressed up for dates. My date left; yours drove you away. I see fate at work in this.”

Her lips started to twitch. Conflicting emotions whirled around inside her. She wanted to stay. But she also worried about dining with her boss. The way he made her feel put her at a disadvantage. She had spent the two weeks since she’d been at St Andrews longing to catch a glimpse of him while at work and feeling incredibly disappointed when she hadn’t.

Within the few minutes of standing outside in the chilly evening with Vincent, she had enjoyed herself more than she’d done for weeks. She could see herself falling for him and didn’t want to be known as one of those women who’d achieved success by canoodling with the boss.
