After years of fighting the pressure of becoming a neurosurgeon and continuing her family’s famous legacy, Katherine Slav’s father has had enough of her partying. He cuts her off financially, leaving Katherine to fend for herself.
Finding a job is a priority. Finding Eric Miller is a bonus – a bonus that quickly proves to be impossible to resist. How can she have the only man who denies her every step of the way? How can she seduce her boss without losing her job?
Struggling to ward off feelings that go beyond professional, Eric tries to keep Katherine at arm’s length, but the more he’s around her, the weaker his resistance becomes.
Discovering Eric’s secret and baring her own, she fights for her newfound love with everything she’s got, but will it be enough to banish the darkness in Eric’s life? Is having Eric Miller all she thought it would be?
Will Katherine be enough?
This book was great! Fun, intense, hot, and filled with anticipation.
Katherine has been cut off! Her father gave her an ultimatum…quit partying and continue the family line of neurosurgery or be cut off. Katherine chose cut off. Having never worked a day in her life and now having no unlimited funds, she sets off to find a job and find herself. She wants to be her own person. Can’t fault a girl for that, right? Thanks to some help from her cousin, Julia, she lands a job as an executive assistant.
Queue Katherine’s new boss, Eric Miller! Watch out ladies, not only is he very intense and demanding, he’s smoking hot and will be heating up those pages.
“He’s oozing with raw sensuality and I feel a violent, unquestionable pull toward him.
I think I’m actually salivating. I silently thank God that my mouth is closed.”
The sexual chemistry and tension between these two is through the roof!
“I’ve seen men look at me with desire, but this…I’ve never felt ferocity like this. It’s as if he wants to claim me right here, right now.”
We have two problems here.
Problem 1: Mr. Miller doesn’t mix business with pleasure. He has never dated an employee and doesn’t intend to start now.
Problem 2: Eliza. Ah yes, best friend that is and has always been there for him. You know ladies…that girl we all love to hate. She makes it clear to Katherine right away to keep off.
“Listen, and listen good. Eric is mine. I don’t care if you’re crushing on him, but know that nothing will ever happen between you two. I’ve known him and loved him for years. I’m the only one that can handle him, so whatever plans you’re making in that head of yours, forget them.”
Jealousy ravishes this book. Katherine is stunning and has guys eating out of the palm of her hands. At business meetings, Mr. Miller’s clients are giving her their business cards and inviting her to dinner. Flowers show up at work for her. It’s great! There’s also fun wit throughout the story and we see Mr. Miller wants Katherine in a bad way.
“I can’t, Katherine. God…I don’t want to feel this way toward an employee. But I do…and as badly as I want you, I can’t.”
Mixed signals and hot and cold demeanor ensue. Will Mr. Miller continue to fight his desire for Katherine? You must read to find out! Oh, but there’s more going on here. When Katherine runs into her ex, Mark, some things start happening. Looks like there may be some issues in Katherine’s past. As we also start to learn more about Mr. Miller, it would seem he may have something going on with him too. While some things get uncovered, I feel like there’s still some mystery to him, like we haven’t uncovered all of his layers yet.
And I have to mention Laura, she’s the best! Nanny, housekeeper, friend, everyone needs a Laura. She sweet, motherly, and takes such good care of Katherine.
This book is loaded with anticipation and I couldn’t put it down. There is so much that happens, and that ending…OMG! Next book, please!
