Description: Abandoned by her mother and spurned by her father, Reina St. James is tired of being treated like a dirty little secret. It wasn’t easy making her way into the high-risk, high-reward Wall Street world ruled by financial kings and trust fund tyrants. But now that she’s got a stiletto-clad toe into one of the swankiest firms in Manhattan, Reina is determined to prove she’s more than just a pretty face hiding an ugly past. For Tristan Xavier Bettencourt IV, escaping the shadow cast by generations of family fortune has been difficult, and success hasn’t come without sacrifice. Tristan has always put business before pleasure… Until Reina’s curved lips prove an invitation he can’t resist. Walking away from their explosive night together won’t be easy, even if the heat between them might consume both of their careers. Will Reina and Tristan risk everything by betting on each other?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
➳When it comes to sleeping with the boss, and it may sound wrong but feels right? Tara Leigh knows how to do it correct…

➳One always expects to read more and more about the mystery of the male character in a love story, and how the female changes him and makes him think about love and how he is capable of loving someone. This story is different though. Tara Leigh has brought a new meaning to the idea of the female having a past, that no matter the consequences, she does not indulge in the action of love. One would think that it would be the other way around, but after witnessing the past of Reina, and Tristan being there to try and comfort her, this story takes a turn of events that one would never expect.

➳I really love the chemistry between these two characters. The differences is what brought them together hare their similarities in a world that is separated by the high and lows of a socialite or anti-socialite. Though struggles were brought upon between Reina and Tristan in regards to having to indulge in a relationship during working hours or during their private time, their actions are what makes them such unique characters in a world filled with insecurities and hierarchies.

➳Overall, I enjoyed this book much more than what I was honestly anticipating. The second book, I can already tell it will be incredible knowing what was shared in this first one. Thank you to Tara for sending me this novel as I will treasure it since it was beyond beautiful. I highly recommend this novel if you are looking for an office romance “affair” with struggling character to find what true love actually means. And if not, then just read it anyways cause you will adore it either way;)
