Series: Wrong, #2.5
Published on November 1, 2016
Fling is a STANDALONE novella - about 80 pages
I have a crush on my boss’ best friend.
At least it’s not my brother’s best friend.
Or my best friend’s brother.
Or… never mind. It’s all pretty cliche.
And worse? My boss’ best friend is his business partner.
Which sort of makes him my boss too.
Okay - it’s not sort of. It’s definite. Gabe Laurent is off limits. Totally off limits.
Which is fine. I make do with my imagination. He’ll never know. Ever.
Unless my work bestie passes me an eighties-style teen movie sex quiz
during a meeting and I fill it out.
And it ends up in Gabe’s hands…
*** Please Note ***
Wrong - Sophie's Story
Right - Everly's Story
Fling - Sandra's Story
Trust - Chloe's Story - November 8, 2016
Each book can be read on it's own, but TRUST takes place 6 months after the first three books.
Characters from those first three books appear in TRUST, living their happily ever afters.
Jana Aston has a way of telling a story!
Fling is a wonderful weekend distraction. Sandra is a quiet administrative assistant to the ever handsome and brilliant Sawyer (Right, Wrong series #2). She is captivated with Gabe, her boss’s partner, but refuses to let him or anyone else know her dirty thoughts and lust filled feelings.
While in a meeting, her work bestie passes her a sex quiz to fill out to occupy their time until the corporate meeting ends. Sandra fills it out and goes about her business. Until she realizes it lands in her crush’s hands!
With a nostalgia 80’s movie feel to this novella, I found myself smiling from ear to ear as Sandra navigates her wants and feelings in the workplace and in the bedroom. I enjoyed getting to know Gabe more in this story and liked his banter with Sawyer. Gabe, like so many of Jana’s leading men, gave me all the feels. He’s hot, demanding, bossy, and did I mention, HOT. I also LOVED when returning characters pop in from time to time. It was SO fun when Everly showed up- her wit and charisma are true to her character and made me want to pick up Right, Wrong series #2, again.
Fling is the PERFECT rainy day read. It’s fun, sweet, hot and steamy, and a wonderful addition to the Wrong series. I love series where I get to drop in on the lives of beloved characters-and this is the perfect example. I can’t wait to see where Jana takes me in Trust, and only hope I get another peek at Gabe and Sandra, Everly and Sawyer, and Sophie and Luke.
Sandra and Gabe are great leading characters and add so much to the Wrong series world. (While this is a standalone, to really feel and enjoy this story, I recommend reading Wrong and Right.)

CHECK OUT THIS EXCERPT:
“What do you think of Sandra?” I ask Sawyer as I snag a signed baseball from a display case along the far wall of his office. I settle into one of the guest chairs across his desk and toss the ball over my head before catching it again.
He’s reviewing something on his monitor and he pauses at my question and turns his attention to me. “You know she’s the best executive assistant I’ve ever had. Do you need her help with something? I thought you were happy with Preston?”
Somehow human resources only assigns me gay men or women old enough to have birthed me. I suspect that’s on direct orders from Sawyer. Dick.
I give the ball another toss and catch. “No, I meant, what do you think of Sandra as a woman?”
“I don’t,” Sawyer says, narrowing his eyes at me.
“She’s got a thing for me,” I say.
“She doesn’t,” Sawyer says dismissively and taps the mouse on his desk, intent on ignoring me.
“She does,” I insist. “She’s always looking at me.”
“Maybe she thinks you’re an idiot.”
That’s a distinct possibility. I’ve never been quite sure. Most of the time she ducks her head and calls me Mr. Laurent as she scurries past. It fucking turns me on, but I’m not sure if it turns her on or if she honestly just thinks I’m an asshole.
“I think she’s dating someone in marketing,” Sawyer adds while tapping on his keyboard, engrossed with whatever’s on the screen in front of him.
“They broke up over the summer,” I say confidently, leaning back in the chair and tossing the ball a little further in the air.
“How do you know that?” Sawyer stops typing and crosses his arms across his chest. He doesn’t look pleased with my knowledge of Sandra’s dating life; I think he views her like the little sister he never had. “What could you possibly want to do with Sandra anyway?”
I catch the ball as my brows raise in disbelief. “You need me to spell it out for you, buddy?” I lean forward in the chair and adopt a serious tone. “Sometimes, when two people are attracted to each other, they enjoy taking their clothing off together so they can—”
“Shut up,” Sawyer interrupts. “She’s not really your type.”
“Beautiful?” I question.
“Sweet,” he replies.
She is sweet, he’s right about that. I think about the paper burning a hole in my pocket and wonder again if it was hers. I’d like it to be hers. I think sweet Sandra has a hidden dirty side, and I’d really like to uncover it.
