World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎🌏
Character development: 😳🤬😏🤓
The Hero: Damon Rose – His brother is a huge NFL star and Damon is his sports agent. He wants to keep his brother’s name in the headlines as long as possible so he and his brother go to the Olympic committee to see if they can bring American Football to the olympics like has been done with Basketball.
The heroine: Chelsea Cross – an upcoming tennis star who needs to get her name out there. So she tries to get on the Olympic tennis team. Her parents used to support her and her tennis goals, but had summarily stopped supporting her when she took her brothers side in an argument with them.
The Story: Chelsea sees Damon at his Alpha-hole worst when he makes a little girl cry. The two of them butt heads from the very start and don’t stop until he has her against a wall in an empty conference room. They both end up late to the meeting and neither gets what they want.
Fast forward five years and Chelsea shows up for an interview at Damon’s company. When the person she has an appointment with isn’t there, she ends up being interviewed by Damon and becomes his personal assistant. Damon is the ultimate grumpy boss and a huge jerk, but he puts forward that persona purposefully.
I liked the premise, the story and the steamy romance. I liked the fact that Chelsea wouldn’t be cowered by Damon like most of the other people that work for him. I love the secret baby trope and really enjoyed the fact that it didn’t become a huge issue that she kept it from him. The narration was great. It was dual POV, dual narration and done by Benjamin D. Walker and Veronica Landon. Benjamin’s voice sounded a bit too old at first for my taste, but it grew on me and I ended up liking it.
