Sara has a kick-ass life. She has loyal friends, works from home, and sets her own hours as a virtual assistant.
Perfect... Except Sara doesn't actually exist.
She's just a borrowed name I use when I'm hiding behind my computer screen. But pretending to be someone else is the only way I can earn enough to make up for the mistake I made and the lives I ruined.
If I hadn't typed my new boss' name into that search engine, none of this would be happening. I would've kept imagining Hayden looked the same way I pictured all my other clients--late fifties/early sixties, a little soft around the middle, and a lot more forehead than hair. I couldn't have been more wrong. Seriously, how many VPs look like they go model underwear after leaving the office?
Damn it, if I'd never found out what an amazing man Hayden is, I wouldn't want to cry every time he calls me Sara.
But hey, that's life, right? And nobody's life is perfect.
My life is pretty damn perfect. I'm married to a beautiful woman, live in a luxury apartment, and am prepped to take over the multi-billion-dollar company my father built.
Perfect... Except all of it is a lie.
My wife is madly in love with someone else, my career is meaningless, and I forgot how to live, let alone be happy.
But when I hired a new assistant online, it finally occurred to me that life wasn't meant to be endured. It was meant to be lived. It's unimaginably stupid to fall for someone at work, but I can't seem to stop it from happening.
I'd give up everything I have to be with Sara, and I still have no idea what she looks like. That has to change.
Unfortunately, the only way to get what I want is for a lot of good people to lose everything they have.
***There is no cheating in this novel. Hayden is far too noble a man to hurt and disrespect a woman like that. Trust me, you'll understand when you read the book.*** ***standalone contemporary romance/romantic comedy (no cliffhanger)***

Deeper Water (Once and Forever #3) - Get a look into Carson and Laney's after happily-ever-after and be there for Hayden and Andi's island wedding!
Virtually Impossible is a twist on Sleeping Beauty, and this is how the story begins:
Once upon a time there was a woman who made the mistake of trusting the wrong man. And that mistake led to another. And another and another, each more damaging than the last. But the woman was as ignorant of her mistakes as she was of the damage they caused. Until she was punished for them. Around the same time, but in a totally separate part of the city, lived a noble man and his beautiful wife. Though their castle was the envy of all, its empty halls echoed of loneliness and regret. For the man had lived his entire life asleep, and both of them remained silent of who they truly were and what they truly wanted. And then one day, the woman entered the man's life and forced him to awaken...

A great follow up to Darker Water. Intense and sad, with joy at the end.
4.5* Andi and Hayden....I quite enjoyed their story. Andi is hired as Hayden's Virtual Assistant, but due to past circumstances, can't use her real name and goes by Sara, who is a friend a co-worker. Andi is hiding from life behind a computer screen, paying for a crime that she didn't commit, but feels immense guilt over. Hayden is a workaholic, spending very little time at home. We get the sense that Hayden's marriage isn't all it's supposed to be, and we get the reasons why as the book goes along. If you're worried about this being a "cheating" situation, don't; it's really not written that way, but I can't really give details without spoiling part of the plot line. Hayden and Andi communicate mostly via a chat function on their computers, although they eventually progress towards phone calls and texts. Hayden and Andi are good counterpoints to each other....she helps him to see that he's been missing so much in his life, and really awakens him to wanting more out of his life.....and maybe realizing she's allowed to have more than she's let herself have over the past few years. I like that these stories are based off of fairy tales, but with modern twists. And even though this book is brand new, I'm already excited to read the next.
Another great book by an amazing writer! Lauren Stewart has a way with words and is definitely a fav of mine.
