Tara Johnson’s sacrifices are about to pay off: a senior executive at thirty-five at a Fortune 500 company, she’s one of the two finalists in line for a Managing Director position. Unfortunately, her rival of fifteen years, the charming, infuriating Richard Boyd, is just as qualified, and unlike her, he’s willing to cross pretty much every line to get what he wants.
Of all the things Tara stored in the attic to make it to the top, it’s her personal life she misses the most. That is, until she starts a steamy affair with sex god Aidan, her direct report. Interoffice relationships with a subordinate can mean the end of a career, and when Richard finds out, it’s the perfect opportunity to take his high-heeled nemesis out, especially since he’s still nursing a grudge against Tara for rejecting him years ago.
But Tara’s increasingly domineering lover has his own dark secrets, endangering more than just her career. As her liaison spirals out of control, salvation will come from the man she always thought she hated, and perhaps the only one to truly understand her.
I loved how well thought out these characters, their positions, and lives were. There weren’t loop holes or questions when it came to what they were doing day to day or why.
Tara was a solid lead, I wasn’t as huge a fan of hers from the beginning, but I really got on her side.
Neither of these guys are 100% hero material from the beginning. Reading this novel they change and grow and the way the reader feels about them changes right along with how Tara feels.
I liked the culmination of all of the themes in this novel, suspense, emotion, tension, and love. There is a lot going on and it all comes together in the end.
