Heroine Miranda Johansson has had a very bad day. The strait-laced, ultraconservative stock-market analyst in Chicago’s LaSalle Street financial district just lost eighty-seven million dollars of her clients’ money in a massive stock-market implosion. And if that weren’t bad enough, she just had wild, no-holds-barred sex with a complete stranger on her coffee break----and that complete stranger turns out to be her new boss! Can Miranda get control of herself without losing her job, and her mind? Or will her sexy new boss completely derail her self-discipline, her stock portfolio, and her career? (Not to mention the sudden intrusion of his manipulative ex-girlfriend---a scheming, ruthless woman who controls half of Wall Street.)
Will Miranda survive the ups and downs of her new love life, which is just as volatile and unpredictable as the market? Or will her new romance go down the tubes along with the economy? Only time will tell.
I liked the idea of having the white collar stock market characters. It is a fast pace life and so it explains why the book goes right into the thick of the story. Miranda is a hard ass. Probably one of the biggest bitches I have read in a long time. But when you read about her, you understand why. Max is not what you peg him as. He had to earn what he has made of himself.
Now you will meet Victoria in this book. I can tell you that she is would be on my top villain list. I just wanted to punch her. But that is what makes a good book, right?
The book was entertaining and enjoyed it.
I would rate the book. 4.0.
