~ Synopsis ~

Five minutes until the interview begins.

Fresh on the heels of her college graduation, Cameron Heart has landed an interview at a prestigious architecture firm.

Four minutes until the interview. 
She knows she’s only there because the owner, Grayson Cole, is her older sister’s friend.
Three minutes. 
For the last seven years, Grayson has been the most intimidating man Cammie has ever had the pleasure, or displeasure, of being around.
Two Minutes. 
But the job opportunity is too good to pass up. So, Cammie will have to ignore the fact that Grayson is handsome enough to have his own national holiday. 
After all, she shouldn’t feel that way about her new boss. And, he will be her new boss.

“I’m not scared of you,” I said with a confident smile.
“Perhaps we should fix that, Ms. Heart. Close the door.”

~ Review ~
4 Stars 

This book was hard for me to like in the beginning.  It was one of those ones that I almost gave up reading because I really didn't like one of the main characters.  I am happy that I continued reading it though because it turned into an amazing book.

Cammie has had a thing for Grayson since she was seventeen years old.  He is the reason she picked becoming an architect.  Her dream is to get a job and make money and move to Paris.  She wants to prove that she can make it on her own and doesn't need anyone to be there for her.  She never thought that once she had a taste of Grayson that it would be hard to leave.  Can she finally get her dream and move to Paris?  Or will she give it all up for love?

Grayson has wanted Cammie since he first met her, but the fact she was seventeen and his best friends sister kept him away.  He knew he couldn't have her, but he wanted to help her from afar.  How can he do that?  Finally she is graduated and he wants to help her so he gives her an interview for his architect firm.  He wants to help her, but is he really crippling her?  Can he stay away from her?  Or will he finally give into his desire to have her?  Will he be able to let her go though?

This book was hard form me with how Grayson was in the beginning.  But I loved how he was there for her when she needed someone to be there.  I loved how Cammie grew in this book and learned about what she needed.  I really wish we could have gotten into Grayson's head and learned more about why he did some things.  This was an amazing read and I can't wait to read more books by RS Grey.

~ Excerpt ~

I paused just outside of the front doors and took a deep breath, trying to get my bearings. I was twenty minutes early for my interview. My outfit was still wrinkle-free. My pad-folio was filled with extra copies of my resume and reference letters, and I’d rehearsed every possible question that Grayson Cole would ask:
Greatest weakness? My inability to settle for anything less than what I deserve. I’m stubborn and persistent.
The honest answer? My inability to overcome my schoolgirl crush on you even though you’re a self-righteous ass.
I would NOT be giving him the honest answer.

~ Author Bio ~

I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way, I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things... everyday.
I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors include Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I'm a comedy geek and love all things "funny". Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
