Part 1 of 3 of a serial series (needs to be read in order)
Be warned: This books ends with a cliffhanger.
Hardened by her damaged past, Alice Bennett has no desire for any type of relationship and easily dismisses the warnings about her handsome, but extremely difficult, temporary boss. She is determined to do her job, and do it well. She needs this job, and the references that come from working at a prestigious law firm.
But the moment she lays eyes on him, Alice’s determination waivers as unexpected desires stir inside her – even as he barks orders about her choice of lunch.
Dylan Marshall is the best lawyer in the city and knows exactly what he wants, and how he wants it done. As the senior partner at his prominent law firm, he expects the people working for him to do what they’re told. Discouraged by the string of incompetent temps, he has low expectations for anyone new the agency sends his way.
But the latest temporary assistant is anything but incompetent, and Dylan discovers he wants to know more about her, and intimately. Especially when she stands her ground and questions his orders. Suddenly, this domineering boss learns he prefers a woman to be his equal.
Content warning: Adult language and situations, plus some very hot explicit love scenes.

If you do not like cliffhangers wait to buy this until all parts are out. This was a very intriguing read we get some insight into Alice's life and some hints about Dylan that will hopefully get answered about and a shock for the end. I look forward to reading the next one The scenes were well written and the characters and there story pull you in.
LOVED it! Great chemistry. Alice is spunky and determined which gives Dylan a run for his money. He needs someone to push back against his alpha tendencies. Told with dual POV which is fun getting all angles to this relationship. Alice needs this temp job but has been warned that Dylan is a tyrant. She hasn't been able to find a job after graduation so she will work hard to keep this job to pay the bills. What she didn't expect was to be attracted to Dylan. Dylan is surprised by his reaction to the new temp. He struggles to maintain his distance but also tries to be less of a tyrant, he is tired of secretaries walking out on him. He never expected the temptation of Alice to be so difficult to fight. Of course, as with any amazing serial, we end with a crazy cliff hanger … bring on part 2 please!
