When Adeline Parker decides to celebrate landing a coveted internship at one of Chicago’s most prestigious architectural firms by indulging in a brutally dark and handsome man, she gets more than she bargained for.
Lost in a maze of hallways on the first day of her new position, she stumbles headlong into a boardroom of suits. Very expensive suits. They are the somebodies of this prestigious firm, and she is, by all accounts, the very definition of a nobody. And sitting at the table with the rest of the principals from the firm is a man—the very man who unwittingly deflowered her only days before.
From the look of it, Jordan Ellinwood is none too happy to see her again; by his own admission, he’s a one-night-stand man, and the fact she conned him into taking her virginity isn’t sitting well with him either. But as her path is inextricably attached to his, their closeness will no longer be a choice.
As an intern, she’s off-limits, and that says nothing of the fact he’s twelve years older than she is. But when coworkers bent on jealousy and resentment threaten her reputation and internship, the long-dormant emotions Jordan has so effectively stifled fight to break free. And as he struggles to get out of his own way long enough to let her see his compassion, her career is jeopardized and leaves him fighting with every last ounce of himself to save her.
Will it be enough? Can he overcome his emotional shortcomings in time to rescue her future and his own—now so very attached to hers?
Review: I’ts 2014 now, and the first thing I thought of when the clock hit 12 midnight was ” what will I be reading this year?” 😀 I know, I am boring right?
Anywho, I have heard a lot about this book and it has been on my TRL for a long while now, so I finally started it.
“Do you want to fuck me?”
Wow…this book really starts out with a bang…literally. Jordan knows what he wants and he wants Adeline…but for the night only. He doesn’t do relationships and she’s fine to go along with the program, that is, till she gets to her new job on Monday and sees him there.
I always love the kind of stories where love breaks through/down walls. It was great seeing Jordan realize how much he wants Adeline and if he truly loves her with having no experience at loving anyone. (I loved the play on the title and Jordan.)
Adeline was equally out of her element but having no experience she really tried to listen to her feelings and at the same time, protect herself. It was really hard reading about all the mean things done to her but I loved how Jordan always defended her.
These two were hot together…and some scene were a bit crazy. Their time in the rain was probably my favorite. I did get a bit tired of them going back and forth with their feelings but I guess it all added to the drama. Im 50% into the book right now and i’m totally loving it.
