Ian Greening loves his job at the Department of Work and Pensions.
It might not be the best paid job in the world but it gives him lots of scope for fun. He loves his girlfriend, Emma, too. But when Emma is made redundant, and gets a temping job in Ian's office, he doesn't like it at all.
Emma only knows Home Ian - and Work Ian is a different kettle of fish.
Spending twenty-four hours a day together is too much of a good thing. But how can he tell her that without hurting her? Ian comes up with a plan to get things back the way they were. But it puts his relationship at risk and forces Ian to decide which really matters most: the job, or Emma.
A sweet, funny novel about love and work.

Review by DaveLaw
One of the 2011 "Quick Reads" collection. Obviously quite short by its definition and thus characters are not really fleshed out. Synposis is that Ian Greening loves his job in the Dept of Work and Pensions (why??????) and when his girlfriend gets a temp job on the desk next to him he feels his life is falling apart. Well written and as its an area I know well it did resonate with me. The plot was a little contrived, however I would recommend for the odd hour someone may have spare.
