9780141039886: In Office Hours

Lucy Kellaway, author of Martin Lukes: Who Moved My Blackberry?, explores the taboo of the office romance in her astutely observed and wickedly funny work satire In Office Hours.

Stella Bradberry and Bella Chambers work at the same high-achieving, high-end London firm. Bella is a pretty, young single mum, but an assistant to men with half her smarts. Stella, a go-getting, multitasking mother of two, has a seat on the board firmly in her sights.

But then these two sharp, intelligent women do something rash: they embark on affair with male colleagues they wouldn't look twice at outside work. Suddenly, both are telling lies to friends, loved ones and workmates. In the grip of passions they cannot, nor wish to, control, they carelessly break all the rules, sabotaging friendships and careers.

They've risked their livelihood for love. But ending an affair is always harder than beginning one. . .
