Diligent and unassuming, Chanoch Evans has avoided relationships not just out of shyness, but because he doesn’t feel like he has anything to offer—most of his resources are devoted to his war-veteran younger brother.
When a desperate plea from their boss ruins their holiday plans, Lucy and Evans are stuck in an otherwise empty office with only each other for company. After catching their boss in flagrante, they start to see that each other’s mild workplace personas might be just the tip of the iceberg. Despite the prohibition against fraternization between employees, there may be more than kissing going on underneath this mistletoe…
In Due South, India has a project due and two of her best employees are tasked with completing it before the deadline which lands right at the holidays.
Lucy and Evans don't really mind that they are stuck in the office -- both have challenging family situations and after seeing just what their boss is really into, they've decided to break the rules and engage in an office hookup. At least that's how it starts -- they agree to a friends with benefits situation that has an expiration date. After all, office entanglements are against office rules, so they have to keep things to themselves. And none of that is easy!
I really adored the sense of humor and adventure in this installment in The Compass series. There are some really cute scenes where they may just get caught in a compromising position at the office, but these two are just so adorable together that I couldn't help but fall for them. There was just a lot to smile about with this story, especially the romance between these these office mates. Try as they might to keep it all on the down-low, they just happen to fall for each other in the process, complicating the work situation or so they think.
Due South is a great addition to the series. It's a very sweet holiday story and I just loved it! Definitely worth checking out.
