    Summary

    “I don’t think pity is in my job description, Miss…?” He looks at her, taxing. (Of course he knows her name, he knows her firm too, even knows where and when she graduated - both because he did his homework and because she intrigues him a little bit - but he feels somewhat asshole-ish at the moment, so there it is.)

    “Humphrey,” she presses out of a clenched jaw. (Her friends call her Rey, he knows that, too, not that it matters.) “His pregnant wife died, the love of his life, you’d think that would make people cut him some slack...but you probably have never felt love in your entire miserable life so why do I even bother?”

    “Adorable,” he comments dryly, which only infuriates her more.
    “You’re literally the worst,” she says and sounds like a schoolgirl rather than a Harvard-trained attorney. “You’re like...the devil in an Armani suit.”

    ****

    Reylo Lawyers AU. Think Harvey Specter, just crank the asshole-meter to 3000.

    Summary

    “Was it you who suggested this...procedure?” He paused around the word as if it was barbed.
    “No,” she said to his desk. “My employers heard me one night. I was… Well, it...I…” Her breath came faster and her cheeks pinked.
    Ben waited, curiosity piqued.
    Rey inhaled shallowly and flicked a nervous glance at him. “I was dreaming of— Oh, it’s not important.” She flapped a hand as if to dismiss the subject, but Ben could see the tremble of her fingers. “And anyway, I must have made a...sound. In my sleep. And someone heard it. And now I am seen to be hysterical and in need of a relaxative paroxysm. Because heaven forbid there to be a hysterical governess. Think of the children, and all that.” Her casual tone clashed with the rest of her; she was as red as a beet and a wisp of curling brown hair escaped from her updo to brush against her cheek. She swept it away with an unsteady hand.
    “What were you dreaming about?” His voice sounded awfully low to his own ears. He wasn’t sure why he asked; as she’d said, it wasn’t important.
    Rey opened her mouth, appeared to struggle with her sentence, then pursed her lips at the window and choked out a short laugh. “It’ll sound ridiculous,” she said quietly.

    Summary

    It's not Rey's fault that her computer literally never works, but tell that to the grumpy IT guy who never leaves the basement.

    This was my excuse to write witty online banter and desk sex.

    Summary

    '"This is a tea house, you know." The plummy, ultra-posh voice startled Rey Kenobi from her day-dreaming, almost spilling the scalding hot coffee over her chest.'

    Rey, an American former hacker, turned cyber security expert, has been commissioned by Oxford University to protect their systems from hackers. Unfortunately, she has to work closely with Professor Ben Solo, Merton Professor of English Literature who also happens to be Lord Ben Solo, member of the English peerage. And an unmitigated snob.

    She drinks coffee. He drinks tea. He only reads classic literature. She reads Marvel comics. He is nobility. She is a nobody.

    Things should go swimmingly, shouldn't it?

    Summary

    As one of the adult industry’s most bankable stars, Ben Solo has made his career doing things on camera that most men don’t do in their wildest dreams. He has natural charisma, a tireless work ethic, and a flair for sadism that some of his viewers find almost too realistic – not that it stops them from subscribing to his website.

    Rey isn’t interested in any kind of career. She just needs enough money to support herself while she scours the neon streets of Vegas for the father whose gambling habit stole him from her as a child.

    Neither of them is looking for romance on the set of a hardcore abduction porno. It just happens that way.
