Claire Gracen’s life is picture perfect. Her career as a marketing director is on the brink of being legendary, and her marriage to her high school sweetheart has never been stronger. No, wait. It has. It used to be amazing and fulfilling, but one day Claire realizes that she’s been living a lie and her best friend and husband have committed the ultimate betrayal.
Broken and depressed, Claire is in need of something new—new city, new job, new friends.
When she happens to attract the interest of the sexiest man she’s ever met, a man significantly younger than her, she immediately turns him down—only to later discover that this man is Jonathan Statham, self-made billionaire and CEO of Statham Industries. Her boss.
Jonathan Statham is unlike any man she’s met before. He’s used to getting whatever he wants—whenever he wants, and he isn’t about to take no for an answer.
I don’t think I’ve ever read a book with a heroine I hated more than I hated Claire. This woman was awful. She was beautiful and successful, yet the most insecure woman on the planet. I tried really hard to relate to her, since we are close in age, but I couldn’t. She was awful, and the way she treated Jonathan was awful.
Jonathan was the only good thing about this book. I LOVE him, he may be my new book love! He was no nonsense and knew what he wanted, and for some reason, he wanted Claire, despite how awful she was. Jonathan deserves a crown for the shit he put up with from her.
Jonathan’s mother was almost as awful as Claire, and I give him so much credit for trying to mend fences with his mother. She certainly did not deserve his forgiveness or his love, but he gave it. Made him SO likable.
I’ve read some blurbs about the next book, and I’m not going to read it, because it sounds like Claire gets worse and her ex-husband comes back, so I’m out. But if you like strong alpha males, then read this because Jonathan was great!
