An ambitious intern, a perfectionist executive—and a whole lot of name calling. Discover the story that garnered more than two million reads online.

Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate—and completely irresistible. A beautiful bastard. 

Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative—completely infuriating—creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting that he’s willing to bend the rules—or outright smash them—if it means he can have her … all over the office. 

As their appetites for one another increase to a breaking point, Bennett and Chloe must decide exactly what they’re willing to lose in order to win each other.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bev | 2/16/2014

    " I liked their chemistry and snarkiness! I would have loved an epilogue about how they were doing a year or so down the road but I guess that is where I just have to use my imagination. Looking forward to the second book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 1/30/2014

    " I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Finally, a heroine who isn't a innocent little virgin who is in awe of the big, bad, tortured hero (retch!!). Just two stubborn people who drive each other crazy but have amazing sexual chemistry. I really liked Chloe - she was strong-willed and not afraid to call Bennett on his crap. Equally, Bennett was a loveable bastard who redeemed his behaviour towards the end of the book. I am so glad he didn't have a 'tainted past' that he could blame for his crap - he was just a bastard haha. Refreshing :) "
