Haylee Holloway has experienced more grief than a 22-year-old should have to endure. When she moves to LA for a fresh start and takes a job as an assistant for an advertising company, the last thing she expects is to have to step in last minute during a photo shoot as the model.
Her bikini line and weight are suddenly open topics of discussion, and a client's million dollar campaign is hanging in the balance. To cap it off, the multi-millionaire, gorgeous owner of the company shows up and takes charge.
Josh Singer, the owner of Gamble Advertising, is private, intense, and hard to read. His voice is sexy, his eyes are smoldering, and when he learns of Haylee's goal to save money for law school, he makes her an offer she can't refuse:
To move to New York City and work for him directly as his assistant.
Haylee's dilemma: how does she travel the world with a gorgeous boss whose voice alone conjures up a romantic fantasy and not completely make a fool of herself?
Frustrated with Josh's mixed signals, Haylee finally puts it all on the line. Blurring both their professional and personal lives, can they keep things temporary as planned or will they both realize some things weren't meant to end?
This audiobook has flavors of romantic comedy, chick lit, and a true contemporary romance novel all in one. Told in first person, it's about finding romance where you least expect it, with the belief that humor, self-discovery, and love really can conquer anything.
Full length standalone audiobook with no cliffhanger. First audiobook of the Something Series
Recommended for mature listeners due to situations of language and sexual content.

This was most definitely an interesting story. There are many PA/boss romances, but most of them involve someone down on their luck where the boss makes them an offer to bail them out and usually includes sexual favors. This did not have that. Sure, it had a very rich boss who offers a job but there were no favors to be had. Although the boss had a bad experience, it wasn't from his childhood. And the assistant was taking care of herself quite nicely on her own, mostly by her own merit where it counted. It was an enjoyable read for certain.
And I was also lucky enough to listen to the audio along with it. The narrator was a little stiff at times, but told the story how it was written. I would have liked to hear more warmth and inflection between some of the interactions, but overall I did enjoy the listen.

Tell Me Something NEW
While the author shows talent, the plot was old, tired, and incredibly insulting to intelligent women. When a rich older man (Josh) lured young college graduate (Kaylee, an extremely immature 22 year old) across the country to work for him, promising to help her get into law school, nothing good could happen.
Josh became obsessed and overbearing with Kaylee, trying to control every aspect of her new life. Rather than assertive and self-confident, Kaylee crumbled into a week, pathetic and needy child who obeyed Josh's every command like a well-trained dog, never believing she deserved respect and affection.
I am not sure who was more annoying, Kaylee for being such a doormat or Josh for being a selfish asshole. I quit about half way through this book, so I don't know if Josh ever became physically violent with Kaylee but I wouldn't be surprised.
Not sure why women authors continue to portray female characters as brainless twits, rather than intelligent and strong.
