Working Stiff (Runaway Billionaires: Casimir)
Runaway Billionaires #1
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Here’s the problem: when Rox was hired, she told her smoking-hot boss Cash that she was married, but she’s not. Now, three years later, she’s kind of accidentally living with him, and he’s being a perfect gentleman, dang it.
Everybody in the office said that Cash was a heartbreaker, that he’d bump her and dump her, so Rox decided not to become a statistic. She went out and bought herself some rings of the finest cubic zirconia so that she could work with Cash, who was several inches over six feet tall, emerald-eyed, ripped, gorgeous, his tailored suit clinging to his athletic body, sporting a British accent, and loaded.
It had seemed like such a good idea at the time.
But now, three years later, she and Cash have become friends. They travel together for work often, and they’re the best of buddies.
When Rox gets thrown out of her apartment, Cash insists that she come live with him until they can find her a place because that’s what friends do.
Now, even though everyone insists that Cash never goes after married women, something about him has changed. There are little touches, little slips, and Rox is more and more tempted to tell hunky, gorgeous Cash that she never was married.
And then he’ll take her and break her, and then he’ll walk away, and then she’ll lose her job, and she still hasn’t found a place to live.
And yet, every time he looks at her with mischief in his dark green eyes, every time they’re teasing and it somehow turns into tickling, every time she swats at him and somehow ends up in his arms, she wants so much to risk everything.
What’s a working stiff to do when she falls in love with her friend, the boss?

Another fabulous book by Blair Babylon! Cash and Roz have worked together for three years, keeping it strictly in the friend zone, despite each holding as secret attraction to the other. Then after an eviction---things change. A great, emotional story, sexy, funny and lots of action. It was fun checking in with characters, like the Dom, from her other books. Can't wait for the next book!

Blair Babylon has done it again! I love this book!
I’ve been in love with Blair Babylon’s books for quite a while now. Each time I read a new one her stories continue to captivate me.
Working Stiff is the latest addition to her Billionaires in Disguise (BID) world but it’s also the start of a new series she’s titled Runaway Billionaires. This book is a standalone – no cliffhanger. Yay!! You don’t need to have read any of her other BID books to enjoy this one but you really should because they are great.
Rox doesn’t want to become another notch on her boss’s infamous belt so she tells him she’s married when he hires her.
Cash doesn’t mess with married women – ever – but being around Rox is sorely testing his resolve.
Fate throws the two of them together in more than just a day-to-day business way and the sparks fly (in more ways than one).
Blair has penned a captivating story filled with romance, mystery, intrigue and no small amount of humor. You will be more than satisfied with the conclusion of this story (there truly is no cliffhanger) but I think you will also be curious to read the upcoming stories for Cash’s friends Arthur and Maxence.
I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
Don’t let anyone tell you romance novels are a bunch of crap written at grade school reading levels. Here are a few of the words I had to look up as I read this book:
A hot new billionaire with royal bloodlines
A Review of Working Stiff: Casimir (Runaway Billionaire) by Blair Babylon
A hot new billionaire with royal bloodlines - 5++++ stars
Blair has done it again. She has delivered a new set of characters to us that we will fall in love with. Casimir, nicknamed Cash, is an entertainment lawyer and Rox is his paralegal. When she was first hired, she heard all the talk about what a heartbreaker he was and that he liked to hump and dump, which is what she calls ghosting. With her past history, she wants nothing whatsoever to do with someone ghosting on her, so she buys herself some rings and tells everyone that she is married.
Since Cash never goes after married women, she ends up being the only paralegal that can safely work with him and the law-firm does everything to keep her happy and working with him. During the last three years, they have become very tight friends and travel together constantly. Rox's career is going great and she just bought herself a sweet little sports car with the money she had been saving for a house down payment.
When Rox finds a lock-out box and an eviction notice on her front door, she uses redneck ingenuity to keep the door open and packs up her clothes and cats before leaving her home. When Cash finds her three rescue cats in her office and learns that she had spent the night in her car after being evicted, he insists that she come and stay with him until she can find a new place to live. She tells him that her husband is out of the country for a month (since he's a stuntman).
There are lots of twists, turns, intrigue, mystery and murder attempts to keep you on the edge of your seat. We also get a short trip to The Devilhouse. How does one curvy woman deal with all the secrets that have been kept by her friend and will she be able to overcome her own hang-ups? You definitely want to grab this one if you enjoy any of Blair's other books. ABSOfeakingLUTELY awesome!
