Product description

Product Description

"I want all of you, not just the parts that you think are appropriate or safe."

Maddie's rules for attending a work retreat:
1. Pack the right clothes. Especially extra underwear.
2. Don’t try to school your insanely hot boss on acceptable trust exercises.
3. Be prepared for the extracurricular ropes course.
4. Make sure there is a safety net when you fall, because you will fall hard.

Gage doesn’t appreciate how hard it is to be his right hand woman—especially when I’m spending so much time with my own right hand, fantasizing about him. My demanding, control freak boss is testing all my limits, and I don’t know how long I can stay professional.

No Excuses is a steamy, full-length contemporary romance, featuring a billionaire and his sassy assistant, blindfolds, office hijinx, rope play, food fights, and sexy architectural features like wainscoting. As in all Nikky Kaye books, cheating is not allowed! A little angst, some funny stuff, and a HEA are non-negotiable.

No Excuses
Nikky Kaye
🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 stars.

I’d read 2 previous books from author, Nikky Kaye and loved the previous stories so this was a no brainer. Filled with steam, chemistry, loss, love and a millionaire CEO, it was bound to be a good read. I began the story feeling a little under inflated, I’m not sure what held me back but I pushed on and I’m glad I did. At 50% I couldn’t put it down.

App developer business owner, Brian Gage has everything in his life perfect. He runs a very lucrative business but is a bit of dragon at work, and it starts with a weekend retreat... The perfect way to infuriate your staff including his new secretary, Madeline. His no excuses attitude to everything pretty much drives everyone crazy, but Maddie refuses to give in to him. But a weekend away sharing a suite, with blindfolds and dinner makes it harder to ignore the feelings she has for Gage.

Madeline has a less than stellar reputation with work and feelings for her boss will only end in trouble. But when his hands are on her there is not much else to consider. Moving forward with Gage, Maddie will discover the past she has kept hidden will be open by a man with no filter, when she steamrolls into his life. Together the journey will have fear, sex, tears and love... Leaving no excuses and no questions let unanswered, Maddie and Gage will enter a journey of discovery.

Having read Nikki's books before, I found it hard to get into this one, don't know why but I pressed on and as I did the book became very good and I could not put it down. It was full of drama, romance, sex and everything the author is known for. I recommend the book to everyone and you will not be disappointed.
This is a voluntary review after reading an advanced copy of the book. Happy reading!

4.0 out of 5 stars No Excuses To Not Fall For Gage!! 11 July 2017
By Liz Castillo - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you've come to love Nikky Kaye's quick, sultry, insta-love romances, then you are in for a quite a treat with No Excuses.

Gage and Maddie have that insta-love but they fight it for so long until it erupts during a weekend work retreat.

But their relationship has it's ups and downs due to their personal issues, but it's how they deal with them that endear this couple to readers. Both are way out of their comfort zones, but they know they can't let the other one go.

And the sexiness? Nikky doesn't let you down in that department... wow! Is it hot in here, or is it just me?

What I love most is the witty banter and Maddie's sassiness. The way her mind works is brilliantly hilarious at time and at others completely captivating.

I really enjoyed No Excuses and devoured it in one sitting. I couldn't get enough of these two and hated to see their story end. I laughed, I cried, and I swooned. Watching Gage and Maddie's relationship evolve was stunning and oh so seductive.

I would highly recommend No Excuses to anyone looking for something that will not only touch your funny bone but get you all hot and bothered and in dire need of a cold shower.

I like these perfectly imperfect people. The sex scenes are hot, but the are real. I feel like I actually got to know the characters. The story didn't sound like fantasy, it sounded like life. A hot, sexy, real life.

I love these romance books and this one is no different an adult book meant to get ladies in an uproar and men left to deal with the aftermath.

Recommended for the romantic at heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot and humorous 11 July 2017
By CJ - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I’ve read and loved quite a few works by Kaye now, she has style that is easy to read, with steamy sex scenes, and writes novels that are very humorous with the banter between her characters. I know when I’m reading her books I can just switch off from the humdrum of reality and lose myself for an enjoyable hour or so. I have always commented that I wished Kaye’s books were longer, all to date have been novellas, or short stories, so imagine how thrilled I was to get a full length standalone erotic romance from her. Plus the trope of a hot, bossy, and stubborn millionaire boss and his infatuated assistant. Enter Gage and Maddie and the will they won’t they push and pull as both debate the complexities of an office romance.
If I was rating the first half of the book alone, it would be a five star read for me. Extremely entertaining and I loved the build up of the sexual tension between the leads, and the unusual premise to help force them into each other’s orbit. Once the couple consummated the relationship though, the remaining half of the book was only a three star read for me. It seemed to drag a little, with the “obstacles” to their relationship flourishing not making a whole lot of sense. This last 50% was lacking in any real drama for me. Some angles that I thought would be ramped up and explored, the HR Manager and Maddie’s mother, weren’t.
Still a recommended read at an overall average of four stars for me, and Kaye still remains one of my favourite humorous erotica authors. I look forward to her future works, be they short or long!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky & Fun...Plus Chemistry to Spare 8 July 2017
By Sue A. Schwegman - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
First book by Nikky Kaye, but definitely won't be my last. I have no idea how or why I've missed her books, but I will be correcting that little mistake now. Wow, great book. I loved the writing and her quirky and fun sense of humor. There were a couple of scenes that were so damn funny, they were priceless. I always love me some good humor in a great book.

Maddie works for Gage, and honestly I have no idea how they lasted so long without getting involved, because their chemistry is off the charts ridiculous. These two, mmmm, mmmm, mmmm yummy. Gage is a tad bit of a control freak....I mean he makes me look like I just don't care, which is saying something. Basically Gage aka Brian aka Brain is the calm to her storm. She's all over the place and just flies by the seat of her pants. They really are perfect for each other.

There were a few problems along the way, not necessarily for them personally, but a few eye openers. Since Gage is a tad bit of a control freak, he can be really one sided and not see the whole picture. Since Maddie is all over the place, when she tries to take control, she goes a bit overboard and doesn't necessarily make the best choices for them. She also has intimacy issues, which I really don't blame her for at all. She was adopted, but not until she was 14, so yeah...don't blame her.

The best thing about her books is that apparently there is never any cheating, which I for one appreciate, so thank you Nikky Kaye. If you haven't read a Nikky Kaye book, you are missing out and this would be the perfect book for you to're welcome.
