Overachiever Mary-Kate Grant (who is indeed named after an Olsen Twin) has followed every rule to the letter to pursue her dream of working in TV programming. Ripping a page from the “hard work pays off” playbook, she takes an assistant level job at a Chicago sports network to break into the industry.
MK has no time or desire for a relationship right now—she is totally focused on her career and being independent, unlike the other women in her family.
But MK’s plans are run through the shredder when she finds herself working for William Cumberland, a British media mogul who made his fortune with Connectivity, a social media site. William blows into Chicago just like the winds off Lake Michigan and purchases the group of networks MK works for—and makes her his personal assistant in the process.
Suddenly MK finds her career plans in jeopardy. William makes her question everything she has ever thought and has the uncanny ability to see right through her. And for the first time in her life, MK finds herself not only questioning what she wants for her career but for her personal life as well…
I would like to start this review by thanking Aven for sending me an ARC of this book.
I really enjoyed this book. I instantly loved MK and very quickly fell for William. MK always thought she didn’t want a man. Her career was the most important thing. She didn’t want to be like all the women she knew who sacrificed themselves for their career. she wanted to be someone. That was until she met William.
Oh William. The gorgeous bad ass mogul. MK knows that falling for William could ruin EVERYTHING she has ever worked for but for the first time in her life she just doesn’t care.
I just loved the way MK and William’s relationship developed and the constant back and forth banter between the two of them. It was great to read and I was always on edge waiting to see their responses.
I was very happy with ending of this book. I found it most appropriate as MK & William would say. This is a fantastic chicklit book and I would recommend it to all you chicklit lovers out there.
