Book Description

Morgan Lane has just completed grad school, and has accepted a job at Baylor Industries with the help of her father, who just so happens to be golf buddies with Drake Baylor Sr., CEO.  Morgan has lived her 24 years of life under her parents thumbs, and is more than eager to start living life and carving successful career for herself.

Drake Baylor Jr. is being groomed to take over as CEO of Baylor Industries upon his father’s retirement.  Although he was raised in an affluent household, his formative years were rough, leading to a string of bad decisions, and hard lived years.  In order to take over as CEO, his father has given him a set of rules to live by for an indefinite period of time: No drugs, limited alcohol consumption, and absolutely no relationships whatsoever with women-his greatest weakness.  If Drake can abstain from those three things, work hard, and gain his father’s trust, he can have the keys to the Kingdome.

Drake meets Morgan on her first day at Baylor Industries, and the phrase “love at first sight” doesn’t even come close to describing what is felt between them.  Their instant attraction is a magnetic pull that is stronger than either one of them can handle.  Now Drake and Morgan are faced with figuring out how to fight for their future together, hoping not to get caught “Breaking the Rules”.

I received this book for a honest review! Thanks!

I know this books don’t seem too original, but I liked it. It was a nice read, easy to go through and there were a few things that made me to like it this much. It’s not the first book I read when the girl get a job in a company and fall in love with his boss, but this is different.


Because of the characters. Morgan isn’t the girl that fall in love and loses her head, and even she likes Drake and she’s attracted to him, she’s not making her look desperate. Morgan wants to keep her job, to be independent and I liked her, she’s a nice one. Drake is the guy who has a bad past, bla bla, everyone know the story. But I liked that in this book, even the past counts, is not told in a way that need to sound bad and scary. Purely he has wrongs, he has his motives, he was paying for his wrongs, end of story.

I liked that even the attraction between them is strong, they don’t try to stay together every day and every single hour, they keep going out with their friends, going at work separately. It was nice to see how they are together, how they are separate and how theirs lives change. And I think it was a good thing, at first a little bit confusing for me, that the story is told from both point of view. The love is there, it was a nice love story, romantic and a little bit sad, but just a little, and I think it was more real because even they are so in love they don’t try to say it out loud. They were happy spending time together, in their „home”, sometimes having discussions, because what couple haven’t, kissing and other cute and sweet things.

Another thing that I liked about this book is that is not a love triangle, or I wasn’t paying attention. I mean ok, it appears another man, but wasn’t trying to put accent on it. The two things that I disliked were Drake’s dad, he’s an *insert words here* and Adrian, I mean how can you tell that in front of… stupid jelous guy. Stupid.

So, to end this review, I want to say that it was a nice, light, romantic read, with nice characters, a nice written story, and the accent is put on feelings and emotios and not just sex. That is important, or for me is. But yes, it have scenes too, don’t worry;)).  Now I can’t wait to read the next one, because I want to know what happens…
