I open the company messenger app on my phone and scroll through the executive names, knowing full well I’m about to break a policy. It’s the company’s phone, and the company’s app, and I’m about to use it for personal use. To flirt.
With my boss.
I close my eyes, find his name—next to it is a little, green dot, which means. . .
He’s on the app.
I’ve never talked to him live before so this is a huge step, but then again, it might be more fun to get his initial reactions to my comments.
Debating it for all but two seconds, I type out a message to him, making sure I’m signed on under my LSY persona.
HandsRomingMyBody: Hey you.
My text turns into a new message on the app and I wait on bated breath to see if he will respond. Nerves prickle up my spine, my fingers feeling numb, my mind playing mutiny with my heart just as little dots appear letting me know he’s typing.
Oh God, I don’t think I’ve been more excited.

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
Peyton works in marketing at Roam, Inc., which is an outdoor adventure company (think REI). She has a crush on the CEO of the company, Rome Blackburn, who doesn’t have a great reputation with his staff as being a nice guy. In fact, he’s really not.
Peyton gives her two weeks notice to Rome – she’s starting her own marketing company, and she’d really like to have Roam, Inc. as a client. Problem is that Rome won’t give her the time of day – though he normally escorts people out the door, he lets Peyton stay until her two weeks is up – and she and her friends come up with a plan to hep Peyton deal with her crush on the boss.
Love, Sincerely Yours in an email chain that Peyton starts with Rome – though he has no clue who it is. The author informs Rome that she wants to “bang” him. Yes, bang. Who uses that word, lol? They start a back and forth email exchange that turns into something more.
Peyton was a really cool chick. She was confident, but also a little vulnerable. She loved giving Rome a hard time, and had a really fun group of friends.
Rome, on the other hand, was not as easy to like. He was one of those “tough guy” CEO’s who is married to his company and his job. He hasn’t been laid in a long time, and his best friend Hunter (whom I LOVE, btw), encourages him to respond to the emails and live a little.
Honestly, it wasn’t until about 75% in that I started liking Rome. He was a tough nut to crack. He didn’t have much of a sense of humor – at all.
I also feel that the ending of this book was really rushed. We hit the 90% mark and then boom – it’s over. I wish the ending was a little more spaced out and not so rushed. While there was an epilogue, it wasn’t closure to this book, but a look into Hunter’s book, which is next, and I’m super excited about.
Overall, this was a good read and I would recommend it.
