After years of being pressured into becoming a neurosurgeon like her father and refusing each time, Katherine Slav’s father has enough of her partying and cuts her off from all financial support, leaving Katherine to find her own place in the world, out of her father’s provision.
Finding a job was a priority. Finding Eric Miller was a bonus, a bonus that quickly proved to be impossible to conquer. How can you have the only man who resists you every step of the way? How can you seduce your boss without losing your job?
Struggling not to blur the lines, Eric tries to keep Katherine at arm’s length, but the more he’s around her, the weaker his resistance becomes. At the end, Katherine gets what she wants, but is it all she thought it would be? Discovering Eric’s secret and baring her own, Katherine fights for her newfound love with everything she’s got, but will it be enough to banish the darkness in Eric’s life? Will she be enough?

I was given a copy by the author for an honest review.
This is a book about a woman who actually knows what she wants in life AND knows her worth. We usually get one but not the other when we read a book. (It is a thin line between being confident and being full of yourself, innit?)
When Katherine chooses herself when given an ultimatum from her father, she gets a job and meets Eric Miller – her new boss.
As said in the blurb, Eric tries to keep his distance from Katherine. She isn’t too fond of him doing this (because he is yummy). It is confusing because he is hot and cold towards her and ain’t nobody got time for that.
I hate how easily he shuts me out. How strong his control is. It makes me feel weak, like some wild animal that can’t control its basic urges. It makes me want to break his precious control.
I found myself just as frustrated as Katherine at the beginning of their relationship. Once they finally got their shit together and made a decision if they were in or out…. BAM! Drama.
A woman who doesn’t understand what ‘no’ means is determined to keep Katherine and Eric apart.
Of course, by this point, I am hooked on the story and then it ends. Yes, it ends! I was frantically trying to turn pages that weren’t there. I am in desperate need of book two (which is currently being written).
Well played, N. Michaels. Well played.
