Ever since my partner died, my life has been spiraling out of control. I’ve lost everything important to me, and now I’m losing the company he and I built. Investors are breathing down my neck, dictating my every move, and now they’ve hired some young, starry-eyed brand consultant to make me more palatable to the general public.
He’s ambitious, optimistic, and kind-hearted. Everything I’m not. And despite my best efforts, he’s starting to get under my skin. I’m not averse to mixing business with pleasure, but if he’s looking for more than a one night stand, he’s going to be sorely disappointed.
It’s always been my dream to work for Arion, one of the most innovative, fast-paced tech companies in the world. But now that my dream’s become a reality, I’m realizing it’s not what I thought it would be. This isn’t a think tank for genius minds, it’s a mess of red tape and bureaucratic bullshit. And billionaire CEO Darren Wilkes, the man I’ve idolized for years, is way more arrogant and aloof than I ever thought he’d be.
Unfortunately, he’s also a lot hotter than I thought he’d be. He’s definitely got the dark and brooding thing down pat. Somehow I have to ignore all that, though, since I’ve been given the impossible job of rehabilitating his public image.
I never expected to make it past Darren’s prickly exterior; to find the man who’s suffering beneath it all. But no matter what happens between us, I have to keep my head--and my heart.
I can’t afford to fall for my boss.
- Exposed abs
- Read all at once (normal)
- That Jamie said what was on his mind and stood by his convictions
- At least Darren is self-aware enough to see the similarities between Jamie and Ethan
- That the climax was alluded to throughout the story, and not just suddenly THERE like in so many other books
- Chest deep
Mood Upon Completion
- Very few/no typos
- Plasma hot
- Decently sweet
- Why did Darren and Ethan give away so much of their company?*
- Weakly emotional
- Character death (supporting, one, past)
*It doesn’t make sense. I don’t think it’s explained in the book why they did this. If this company was so important to them (practically their baby) I don’t get why they’d give so much control to investors who didn’t have its best interests at heart; giving shares to others in that case is done extremely grudgingly.
