Sexy. emotional. Taboo.

My lifelong hockey hero and first boy crush is now my boss ... and I can't stop thinking about him. The way he fills a suit. How his eyes darken on seeing me. Those thick, hairy thighs I spied at the gym (I'm obsessed!). He's out. I'm not - and have no intention of going public. But I need to know if he wants me like I want him because one look from Dante Moretti ... and I'm completely undone.
