Allison Rand is a hot little barista struggling to make rent. The sassy firecracker is not afraid to take chances - except when it comes to her heart. She moved from her sleepy small town beginnings, to chase her dreams in the City of Angels.
When her best frappe friend offers her the job of a lifetime, she jumps in - with both feet. Right into the arms of Billionaire Cooper Brighton. He's tall, handsome, and totally out of her league - or so she thinks.
Billionaire playboy, and CEO of Brighton Enterprises, Cooper Brighton, was thrown into the business after tragedy strikes. He's adjusting as fast as he can, but his new position of power leaves him lonely and haunted by his own demons.
Allie and Cooper are both keeping secrets. As they continue to cross paths, will their secrets bring them closer together, or ultimately become the thing that tears them apart?
I have mixed feelings about this story, it's book so there's going to be more development as they series goes on. However, at this point I'm on the fence about reading any more.
Our main character Allison wants the reader to be sympathetic to her plight in life. She's been with bad men, didn't apply herself in school and wasted tons of money on many tattoos and drinking at the bars with her rough and rowdy bar crowd. I'm not trying to perch to the gal, but it's no wonder where she ended up in my opinion. Onward with the story, a customer at the coffee shop where she slings beans gets her a job as an IT person. However, on day one she's forced to work on a project and for a team she's never been trained to do.
The plot-line itself was lacking and not very believable. After Allison meets the billionaire Cooper, her hearts all a flutter and the angst begins. Cooper does not see her as more then a hump, as fact that her never once asks her anything about herself. Not family, friends, nothing. Granted, Allison tries to keep things professional and didn't give him a chance, but the guy sure finds time to drag her back to HIS office and have sex with her. During working hours on the clock no less.
Soon she's all the office gossiper and the haters gonna hate. But really, she dug her own reputation grave not even a week into the new position. I think there was just a real lack of investment in any of the characters, they seemed flimsy and un-relatable most of the time. I didn't care much about the characters and that's really a shame because I really wanted to!
While this was not my cup of high priced tea, it might be yours. Read other reviews and see what you think, at less then 100 pages you'll get just enough to know if it's a winner!
