Arrogant, brooding, domineering, possessive, dangerously handsome, and a playboy. These are all the characteristics on Rebecca Gellar’s Run-Like-Hell list for men, but she’s about to meet a man who’s the epitome of these and more…
After breaking off her engagement with Hollywood actor Miles Storm, Rebecca is ready for a change of scenery in her life and in her bed. So when the opportunity to work for StoneHaven Publishing, one of New York City’s most respectable publishing empires, presents itself, Rebecca doesn’t hesitate moving to the Big Apple.
Convinced she can show the owner of StoneHaven Publishing that she has the ‘right stuff,’ Rebecca agrees to a six-month trial as the personal assistant to the owner’s playboy son, Nicholas StoneHaven. This is her big chance. If she can just get through these six months without strangling Nicholas with his Armani tie, she’ll be okay—easier said than done. Nicholas is the last person Rebecca thought she’d find herself pining for, especially when he hits every category on her list
This is volume one in the Millionaire’s Row Series and I came upon it by accident and I’m very glad I did!
Rebecca’s is a curvy, average, all American girl who’s dating a move star. Miles is caught up with his co-star and Rebecca is having none of it. No matter how much Miles tries to make Rebecca believe he had sex with his co-star to create more on-screen chemistry, Rebecca isn’t having it and dumps him.
Wanting to leave LA and try something new, Rebecca takes a chance and applies for a job with her dream company, StoneHaven Publishing in New York. She gets the interview.
Halfway into her flight across the country, things are looking up when, by accident, she meets (falls in his lap) a handsome gentleman in First Class. He’s very attractive and sexy looking, but she believes there’s no way – especially so soon after Miles.
Rebecca has several chance meetings with this hunk from First Class and has her realizing she wants him, badly. Passions begin to flare and then his fiancé walks in. End.
The characters are well-defined and very likeable, except for Miles, of course and Rebecca is described as curvy so I guess she’s supposed to be a BBW. Usually this means she wears a size 14, but I think the author has done a good job of describing her larger frame in the most flattering way. I’m looking forward to reading the other two books in the series because you can just tell that sexual sparks are going to fly.
