Location: Cubicles outside Canon’s office.
Co-workers: Betting on how long Canon’s new PA will last.
Me: No doubts. Ms. Gum-smacker won’t last the day. I need to place my bet.
Manolo Blahnik’s New Fall Shoes: Mine. As soon as Madeline hands over my winnings.
Emma Baker has never spoken a word to Alaric Canon, nor has he to her. But she’s studied him every day across the office tundra for almost a year. Canon is hard and fierce, terrifying and beautiful. He’s also the most stern, unforgiving person Emma has ever seen. Emma’s co-workers run a betting pool for Personal Assistant terminations. There’s a separate pot for the day one leaves without crying. Not likely…Canon made a former Navy SEAL cry.
He has high standards and low tolerance. Everyone knows it. Everyone stays away. Everyone who can, that is. Except Emma. She can’t look away. Alaric Canon is the single most attractive man she’s ever seen. Bar none.
Canon has never noticed her. Not once in almost a year. She’s not even a blip on his radar. But she will be. His radar will be blipless no more.
It is a goal. Emma has a plan.
"If you still think we shouldn't see each other, then we'd better close our eyes. I'm not going anywhere."
"This has the potential to be just that; the first of forever."
All that being said my rating stands at 3 hilarious stars. As a debut it's a good start, and I think Qwen has a lot of potential. She has a unique writing style, and her dialogues are witty and humorous. It's not everyone's cup of tea minions, but if you're looking for a light, comedic read with a lot of banter, office shenanigans and a love story to have you all tingly then look no further. This is just perfect, seriously if you're moods down this book will pick it right back up again.
