Some people may think this story is a bit bland and I agree that at first thoughts, it does sound bland. Yet, I actually found this more enjoyable than some of the coitus packed harlequins. The story is more of a beginning romance between our two main characters but it develops so well. The hero and heroine meet by chance in an elevator then being trapped in an elevator. It’s after the heroine gets out that she discovers the guy who she kissed is her boss. Unexpectedly, he offers her permanent and higher pay as his personal secretary (no sex offers, how nice for a change) since he read her resume. However, she rejects the whole thing when he questions why she left her last company, a highly esteemed one under vague reasons. Her rejection doesn’t stop the hero from wanting to know more about her. He’s actually interested in forming a deep relationship with this woman. Unfortunately, the heroine doesn’t want to open up at all thanks to three major men in her life: her father, her ex-boyfriend, and her ex-boss. Plus, a couple of bad boyfriends in between them. Next, he drives her home and they have a great homecooked meal that is half way ruined thanks to greedy step-sister’s phone call. She accuses the heroine of stealing back the ex-boyfriend that she stole from the heroine. The heroine says no but the one way conversation the hero hears makes him wonder what’s going on. He then starts flirting with her. Then the lights come on and things come to a halt. It doesn’t stop from the relationship progressing from Christmas tree and ornament shopping. Sadly, it’s ruined by the heroine’s ex-boss’s appearance, begging to talk to the heroine. The hero leaves in a soured mood. The ex-boss has come to apologize to the heroine for his past actions. It turns out she was unfairly and unjustly fired for calling his wife to confirm a plane ticket. She got the wrong woman and it spurred the wife to start divorcing the boss. He in turn blamed his problems on the heroine and fired her. Now, he’s gotten back together with the wife and wants the heroine back. Of course, she says no and leaves it at that. Later, the heroine’s sexist supervisor pushes her into quitting but the hero goes after her later. This is where he learns the truth about the whole thing when the step-sister comes crashing in, accusing the heroine of hiding the ex at her place. Imagine the woman’s surprise at the sight of the hero. Once, she learns his name, she tries to seduce him but the dumb woman can’t keep her mouth shut about how she stole the heroine’s boyfriend. I loved the hero’s response,” Between you two, I would choose the heroine without hesitation,”. That was really romantic and it really embarrassed the step-sister. The irony is she can’t believe that she’s in the same position as the heroine once was. It matches with the Madea phrase, “If you dig one ditch, you better dig two.”. After she leaves, the hero and heroine have that sit down. She reveals about how her father married the step-mother to ease his loneliness but revealed her true colors after he died. She also confesses the situation with the boss and how she doesn’t want to stir up anything since it would only hurt the wife and kids. I loved how the hero admitted his assumptions and cute clumsy states he wants a serious relationship with the heroine. The heroine takes the chance and they end up decorating the Christmas tree together. During the decorating, the hero tells the heroine he sent the sexist supervisor to another branch to work under a woman as his one last chance to better his work attitude towards women with higher credentials and learning. The whole thing ends quite sweetly and I really did enjoy it.
