    Accuracy of Book Profile

    It accurately reflects the book

    Draw of Story

    The writing is straightforward, easy, and pleasant to read. The erotic scenes are well developed and blended into the story naturally.

    Possible Drawbacks

    Three things might make the book lose readers, and revisiting them might increase the book's success in the present culture: 1) Ronan Maxwell morally and psychologically abuses his employees to the point where his character becomes irredeemable. 2) His demeaning comments about the #metoo movement felt unnecessary. 3) Once in a relationship, Quinn talks about caring about her career but doesn't act on her words.

    What’s New About the Story

    The story doesn't rely on the female character trope: naive, inexperienced, and unaware of her beauty. The book could be more unique if the male protagonist were also different than most within this genre; we've seen/read the tale of the powerful, hot, rich CEO.

    Lead Characters

    Quinn Montgomery is a confident woman who is aware of her professional potential and her beauty.

    Uniqueness of Story

    It's not a rare gem, even though it is well written. The story, the characters, and the world are similar to many other books within the same genre. It could be more original.

    Synopsis

    Executive assistant Quinn Montgomery, and Art Director, Sylvie O’hara, talk about how hot is their asshole boss, Ronan Maxwell. At a meeting, O'Hara presents to Maxwell and other executive professionals her marketing campaign for the new hotel launch; Ronan hates it and demands a remake. Quinn struggles to balance how much she hates and is attracted to Ronan.

    Quinn confesses to Sylvie she is too attracted to Ronan and needs a new source of sexual inspiration. Still in the building, Maxwell overhears the conversation; Quinn’s attraction is mutual. One night, while working late, the two argue about work, which leads to lustful sex, followed by an awkward silence and anger on both sides. The two regret the encounter for professional reasons and because they can’t stand each other personally, with Ronan being too demanding and often abusive and Quinn not letting him get to her. Ronan finds an earring that belongs to Quinn, a family heirloom.

    The next day, they’re both passive-aggressive at work, attempting to attack each other’s egos. Ronan returns the earring, and Quinn tells him he was a bad sex partner. The same dynamic follows the whole week, and Ronan’s brother, Liam, notices the sexual tension between the two. He and his wife, Avery, plan to set Quinn on a blind date with one of their clients, a Hollywood actor.

    The tension leads the two to have sex again, this time during work hours. Even though they enjoy each other’s bodies, the intercourse is fueled by insults and hatred. They despise each other’s personalities. Ronan asks Quinn to work on the weekend, but she has a date and can’t. On her date, at a café, she runs into Ronan and Liam; she ends up cutting the date short, and the guy accuses her of sleeping with Ronan.

    Jealous of her date, Ronan can’t stop thinking about it and drives to her house. They have amazing sex once more and then agree never to let this happen again. Quinn shares what happened with her best friends, Sylvie and Antonio, and asks for their advice. They tell her to keep her decision to end the affair.

    The next day at work, Ronan avoids Quinn, and she goes after him to get his signature on documents. Stuck in a crowded elevator together, he fingers her, driving her mad; when they arrive, he runs into an old friend, a model, which makes Quinn leave him alone. Avery sets Quinn up on a date with a publicist friend, and Ronan gets jealous. To make her jealous, he pretends to have a date with the model. It works, and Quinn doesn’t enjoy her date and can only think about Ronan.

    Back at work, they passive-aggressively offend each other. They make plans for a business trip to Hawaii. On a ride back from a meeting, Quinn and Ronan have sex in the car and exchange feelings for the first time. Ronan suggests they continue their affair discreetly, but Quinn is too afraid to be seen as using him for a promotion.

    Quinn misses work for several days, claiming to be sick, and the two meet again at the airport, about to travel to Hawaii. Quinn gets drunk on mimosas before the flight and sleeps on the plane. Ronan struggles to keep his mind away from her. When she wakes up, Ronan asks her to give the week in Hawaii a chance for them to get closer. After it, they’d reassess the affair situation.

    On their first day, they go out on a date and really get along. At night, they have passionate sex and agree to monogamy. They spend the day lovey-dovey but fight over Ronan’s jealousy. Later, they agree on becoming a couple outside of work but keeping the professional relationship inside the company. They spend the next day having amazing sex before going to Maui to visit the second hotel the company bought. The more they get to know each other personally, the more they fall in love. Suddenly, an office emergency interrupts their work trip, and Ronan flies back to L.A. immediately.

    The FBI arrests the company’s CFO for inside trading, and Ronan’s father, the founder of the company, blames Ronan’s affair for poorly handling the situation. Ronan's father demands he ends the affair with Quinn before he loses his job. A few days later, Quinn returns to the company to discover she has been replaced and moved to another department, so she quits her job altogether.

    Quinn and Ronan grief the break-up separately. Ronan gets drunk on cheap whiskey at a bar across the street from the company, and Sylvie goes to him to tell him that Quinn got an intern job in Chicago and will move there if he doesn’t fix things. In an attempt to get her forgiveness, he explains what his father did and offers her a new job at the company, but Quinn doesn’t accept it. He tells her he loves her, but she tells him to leave her alone.

    When Quinn arrives in Chicago to start her new job, she finds Ronan at the airport. Again, he tries to change her mind about coming back to the company, but she can’t forgive him. Ronan stays miserable for one month before Antonio convinces him to go to Chicago after Quinn. On his way there, he runs into her inside the elevator; they talk and finally make amends. She’s moving back to California to a better job in a different company, and she decides to stay at his house until she has a place of her own. One year later, Quinn and Ronan share a house in Malibu. He proposes, and she agrees to marry him.
