I’m desperate and destitute when Lockwood Construction rolls into my small town with an offer too good to pass up: high wages to any able-bodied man willing to join their crew.
Say no more. I throw on baggy clothes, tuck my long hair under a baseball hat, and apply for a job. Unfortunately, my half-baked idea of disguising myself as a guy is flawed from the beginning. As Shakira says, these hips don’t lie.
Still, I like to think I might have pulled the whole thing off save for one thing:
I know my boss.
Last month, we met at a bar, and after a fiery first encounter, it seems we’re destined to be sworn enemies.
Ethan Stone is ruthless and arrogant, a man I never would have crossed had I known how much he likes to toy with his prey.
He should just fire me and be done with it. Instead, he decides to make me his personal slave. Oh right, I think they’re calling it personal “assistant” these days.
It’s torture, all of it—his bad attitude, his ruggedly chiseled face, his desire to grind me into dust.
Every one of our friction-filled battles burns hotter than the last.
A girl can only hold out for so long. Soon, I’m bound to go up in flames.
My objective? Survive the heat long enough to send home a paycheck.
My real objective? Stop having X-rated fantasies about my coldhearted boss.
*I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
This is Rachel’s best book yet! It had everything that I love, hot slow burn romance, witty banter and two amazing characters that you can’t help but fall in love with.
Taylor is down on her luck and is desperate to make some real money to help out her Mon and Siter, so she decides to pretend to be a guy and get a job on construction site with her cousin, which may have worked if she didn’t already know her boss Ethan, who she met in a bar a few weeks before.
I really liked Taylor she was so sweet and sassy, I loved how she worked her damn butt off every day and didn’t let Ethan’s shitty attitude get her down, she made the best out of everything he threw at her, and it was glorious. It took me a little while to warm to Ethan because I thought he was a little jerky to start with but I can kind of understand his initial attitude towards Tayler.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story, I highly recommend it.
