He’s tortured and dark, angsty and arrogant. You want the truth? He’s kind of an A-hole.
He’s also the CEO.
Everything in my life goes according to plan, and that’s the way I like it. I got the degree. I got the job. Now I just need to prove that I have what it takes to succeed in the real world.
If there’s one thing that’s not in my plans, it’s falling in love with my boss.
Most relationships don’t start with one person calling the other out in public for being an arrogant jerk. Then again, most CEOs don’t cut their own employees in line at the coffeehouse and bark orders at people like they own the place.
Maybe pissing Oliver Cody off isn’t the right move. And now that he’s part of my world, all my plans go straight to hell.
Oliver Cody, well Hale as Holland knew him first, is a jerk. At least he was at first. He acted like he owned the place, cut in line and she called him out. She thought he was just hanging around, little did she know he was her boss. Their relationship started on a lie (Oliver didn’t tell Holland he was really the CEO), but built into something real and worth it. The drama of their relationship going back and forth, the pregnancy and the resulting breakup and out of control spiral of the male lead are somewhat cliché but enjoyable. Overarching theme is about communication and trust in relationships, not just romantic ones but all relationships. To be fair, Oliver has had a rough go of it lately and has found out some things about his life that he never expected. That would throw anyone off and un-moor them. Overall I enjoyed this book and would recommend to someone.
