Scavenger Hunt Instructions:

For Dating Impossible, I wanted to do something a bit more than just a regular blog tour. I thought it would be fun if you all looked for a secret word. From day one, there will be a secret word inside the body of each post.  When you string them together in order, they make a sentence. Be the first person to email me at with the completed sentence and win a $100 Amazon Gift Certificate! To be eligible, you must also leave a comment on each blog, follow my own blog , follow me on Facebook!/pages/Kathleen-GrieveAuthor/251669291518939 and on Twitter @kathleengrieve

I will also be picking one person from each comment section to win a free e-book copy of Dating Impossible, the second book in my Dating Series from Evernight Publishing.

I look forward to hearing from you! Now let’s have some fun!  First off, I’d like to thank Kerrianne Coombes for having me here on her blog today.  She has been an invaluable critique partner over the last couple of years. **hugs**.

Today I wanted to discuss relationships in the work place.  As many of you may have experienced, they either work…or not.  There could be quite a bit of drama involved.  And when you watch television shows like Grey’s Anatomy and ER, you will see how hospital gossip spreads like wild fire.  For some reason, hospitals love their “bedpan buzz” as I call it in my Dating Series books.  I tend to embellish the drama quite a bit, but the truth is, gossip in the hospital work environment can be full of juicy ironic often hilarious tidbits of useless information. LOL (secret word #1 “I”)  Have you ever been involved with a co-worker? How did it turn out? Were you still able to work there after the relationship ended? I’d love to hear all about your experiences.  Don’t forget to leave me a comment to be eligible for the grand prize drawing of a $100 Amazon Gift Card and a chance to get your free e-copy of Dating Impossible! Enjoy the rest of your day!



Focused on her career, Dr. JJ Jones doesn’t have time to date—and she certainly doesn’t want to date the “player” of the ER none other than her girlhood crush, Dr. Cruz Avery. JJ found out the hard way that romantic relationships in the work place don’t mix forcing her to relocate back to Arizona and change jobs. She’s determined to spend her free time enjoying her Harley, reading true-crime novels, and learning about the new community she lives in. Dogged by the gorgeous Dr. Avery with his skillful hands, disarming smile, and hot lips, her resolve wavers. For now, she’s having fun making his mission to date her down right impossible!



But damn if she wasn’t all prickly one minute and hot and yummy in his arms the next. His cock hardened and he shifted in his chair. Large almond-shaped green eyes, pink pouty lips, and that sexy belly button ring and tattoos. Cruz shook his head. JJ was definitely a mix of contradictions. She was all innocence and badass rolled into one. And smart.

None of his usual bullshit lines would work with her. So how was he going to get past her no-dating-a-co-worker rule and find out if they had the possibility of a real future together? Christ, she was making this entire dating thing impossible. He rubbed the tense muscles of his neck.

Sex two nights in a row doesn’t mean we are dating. Or in a relationship.

Her words looped over and over against his skull and were the other reason why he couldn’t concentrate on jack-shit today. What he needed was a plan. But what?

He sat up straighter in his leather chair. The kernel of an idea blossomed. What if she didn’t realize they were going out on dates? Yeah, baby. He liked the notion already. But he’d have to tread carefully. JJ was a clever girl. Cruz would just have to be one step ahead of her in order to make his plan work. And once she was hooked on him… He glanced at his reflection in the full-length mirror that hung on the back of his office door and pointed to himself. His lips curved into a perfect smile and he winked.

Who could resist this?

  1. I had a romance at work year’s ago, when I was a nurses aide.But it was a secret romance.I found out he was gay.But I really tried to change him.I can’t believe I’m telling you this.Anyway we turned out to become great friend’s. Your book sounds really good.I love books written in the medical field.


  2. I’ve never experienced a love story (secret or not) with a co-worker, but one on my colleague did (with the boss!) and it didn’t end well. I waited so long for Dating Impossible that I can’t wait to came back from the office this evening and buy my copy. Happy release day!!!!


    • Cristina, office romances usually don’t end well, but sometimes they do. My SO and I started out as friends and we did work together. Now it’s true love. I wanted to show that it could happen! Thank you south for buying my book. I hope you adore Cruz and JJ as much as I do!


  3. Secret romances always seem that much more exciting. Sorry things different work out, Debbie! Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment! Good luck with the drawing!


  4. I wouldn’t say I “dated” a co-worker. No, I’m more like JJ. It was just … uh.. casual sex 😀 I left that worthless job and we still continued to have … er… booty calls every once in a while. If you saw his pic, you wouldn’t blame me 😉 But most of the time, we’d try and hook up when the other wasn’t available, so it just kinda fizzled away. But I’ve messed around with guys like Dr. Avery. Guys with huge egos. It’s really fun to bring down their self-confidence a notch when you refuse them all the time. Haha, yeah, I know: I’m evil and I love it XD


  5. I’ve dated a co worker before… two actually. Never again! its like meeting someone and moving in with them straight away. The first ended up getting jealous of me talking with another co worker – who was a friend before I even knew jealous 1 – which resulted in the fighting in the middle of work and both getting fired! The second ended up emailing my office email every 2 mins and moaning when I didn’t reply… errr hello, working here! Needless to say, that one didn’t last long.


  6. Well, I have dated people I worked with but that was when I was younger and worked at restaurants and bars. It was that young love so it didn’t really mean too much and there were breakups but we still worked together. But I do have an experience with my ex (who I despise) when we were dating. His secretary would constantly bring him baked goods and did everything she could to draw his attention. At the time I was so annoyed, but looking back I think it was divine intervention telling me to walk away because he was a total jerk. They ended up getting married and from what I can tell they aren’t the happiest of couples and me I married someone amazing and a much better person. 🙂


  7. looking forward to reading this book! As for the co-worker thing, can’t say that i’ve done that. I’ve known others who have dated co-workers tho & it usually was a sticky situation. (no pun intended!)
