Off the Clock
by Kenzie Michaels
Austin Harmon is intrigued by his quiet, efficient new administrative assistant. Why does she have an obsession with her watch, and what does she do after hours?
Cara has put her social life on hold while caring for her elderly mother. But after her boss helps her through a crisis, she can't deny their attraction. Romance and Alzheimer's don't mix... or do they?
Cara is the ultimate daughter. She had been taking care of her mother with Alzheimer's Disease. It has been eating her time, so her social life and her love life was pretty non existent. After work, she would directly go home and she'd checked up on her mom even at work. It doesn't help when her brother pretty much likes to wipe her cash out.
It wasn't until a colleague mentioned to Austin about his assistant. Yes, she was quiet but Cara has always been efficient and attractive too. But he already had a bad experience with having a relationship with someone he works with. Yet, he knew that she was different. There was something about her that pulls him towards her.
It was a crisis that brought them together, Austin finally get a glimpse of her life. He finally understood why she was always in a hurry to go home, or whom does she call every now and then. It was then he realized that Cara might be strong, but she also needed someone. Even the strongest people needed someone to take care of them. That someone could be him. :)
It was short, and I was surprised that it had everything covered. I have finished it in one sitting, I would have love it even more it was longer. Nevertheless, it's short, sweet, and easy to the heart.

They cohabitate nicely inside the brain of a woman in Indiana who's the mother of three and 'Aunt Molly' to the entire neighborhood. A devout chocoholic, her hubby has learned to watch out when the characters in her head take over and not get too upset when the words are flowing and all concept of time is lost. (LOL)
