My name is Roman Cavenaugh and I’m kind of an asshole. Running a company isn't easy, especially when everyone expects you to fail, so being a jerk? It comes with the territory. I don't have time to mess around, and I sure as hell didn’t see her coming. Cara Hamilton—she was supposed to be off limits…a temporary employee brought in during my assistant’s maternity leave. But, in the blink of an eye, she became so much more. An obsession I couldn’t shake. So yeah, I may be an asshole, but now, I finally had a purpose, and soon, she would be mine. All’s fair in love and war…

This was my first book by this author. I did not know it was part of a series although it didn't matter because it wasn't too difficult to figure out these can be read as standalones. Roman is a man who is determined, hardworking and a playboy. On the other hand he is trying to prove to his dad that he is more than just what everyone sees.
Cara is a sweet girl fresh out of college, she moves to New York to be with her long time boyfriend. She gets a job being Roman's temp secretary. She is trying to understand why Roman is so withdrawn. Roman keeps his walls up and impenetrable but things start to change and this is where we learn there really is more to this guy then just his good looks. Fun, witty and sometimes I wanted to smack these characters but you know without drama and mistakes you don't have a story. Learning and growing is also what make me connect with characters, I know I'm not perfect, to read a book where they aren't either is great, but then to read how they develop and move forward is even better. I think JL did just that.
I enjoyed this book. This is my first JL Berg book but it wont be my last.
