Beauty and the man who’ll never let her go…
On paper, this should have been the perfect arrangement.
Elise Bravo needed a job, desperately. And soldier turned thriller writer Jed Walsh burned through—almost literally, it turned out—assistants like hellfire through brimstone. Turned out he had some…unusual work habits to go along with his giant talent and ego. He threw knives to relax. He cleaned his guns as he acted out scenes. And more than anything, he hated cats…
Enter Elise, crack typist, master plotter and perfect for the live-in job in every way but one…two if you count Mr. Wiggles, her furry companion. For though Jed had sworn he would never get “involved” with a woman who worked for him, it took only a day or two with the perfectly professional, pencil skirt–wearing Bravo beauty to realize that he needed to keep Elise—in his bed, in his house and in his life. And the first step was building Mr. Wiggles a catio—because maybe there was more than one way for Jed to make Elise his.
Elise Bravo needs a high-paying job to put herself back on track after a series of losses in life, in business and in love. Jed Walsh needs the perfect assistant. He’s a world-famous thriller writer with a specific writing process: he dictates his stories to his assistant.
Unfortunately, Jed is big and gruff and scary, a real beast of a man. He’s having serious trouble keeping a typist; they tend to run away screaming.
And then Elise shows up at Jed’s door to apply for the job no other assistant has been able to keep. She’s a whiz on the keyboards and he doesn’t intimidate her. Jed may be hard to deal with, but he pays a lot.
It’s only supposed to be a temporary solution. She’ll type his overdue book, make all that money and go back to her own life.
But then slowly, Elise begins to realize that she’s falling for her secretly softened beast of a boss. As for Jed, he’s decided that, no matter what it takes or how much it costs him, he’s never letting Elise go…
I hope you enjoy their story as much as I did.
Happy reading, everyone.
