Publisher's Summary

A tyrant by day, a playboy by night. That's the reputation that precedes Richard VanRyan. He lives life the way he wants, no concern for the opinion of others. He cares for no one, is completely unrepentant, and has no desire to change his ways.
Katharine Elliott works under Richard as his PA. She despises him and his questionable ethics, but endures all the garbage he sends her way, because she needs the job. Her end goal is far more important than the daily abuse and demands she tolerates from her nasty tyrant of a boss. Until the day he asks her for something she never expected. A new role with a personal contract-fiancée instead of PA.
What happens when two people who loathe each other have to live together and act as though they are madly in love? Sparks. That's what happens.
Can the power of love really change a person?
Will they survive the contract?
What do you do when the one person you hate the most becomes the one person you can't live without?

The Arrogance

Well...I really enjoyed the plot to the story,I fully expected your typical "assistant/boss"office hook up,but had a different twist than your usual romance.For starters...The assistant was not your"usual"gorgeous,lusty looking assistant,according to her boss(a major a$$ hole,in my opinion)she was a plain,sexless scare crow.He treated her like total $h!t for a good portion of the story and she put up with it because her situation called for her needing her job.In the "hero's"arrogance,he didn't get his promotion so he devised a plan to fix his image with the help of his straight,laced assistant.They worked it out and of course ended up falling in love.A little hard to believe but it happened none the less.If this had some"reality"to it,I'd see a divorce in their future.I think his guilt over how he treated her made him settle and his personality will certainly rear it's ugly head soon,it's not likely to change after all the years of being such a d!ck.

Loved the book, but loved the audio more!

I bought the book when it was first released as it was by one of my go-to authors (I've been a big fan of Melanie's for years) and wasn't disappointed.

So when I found out the audio version had been released I just HAD to get it and I loved it more than the book, John Lane & Tatiana Sokolov did a great job of bringing the book to life and I was emotionally invested (again) from the very start.

This is definitely an audiobook that I will listen to many more times.
