Rex Donovan is an asshole. He gets what he wants, and right now he doesn’t want Nora Covington as his PA. After screwing all the other women who’ve worked for him, Rex doesn’t know how to handle Nora. She’s the type of woman that men don’t screw around with, and she’s also one of the hardest working women he has ever known. But instead of showing her any appreciation, he treats her like shit.
Nora hates her boss. He’s a horrible person. After a particularly bad incident in the office, she goes looking for a new job. She doesn’t want to work anywhere else, but she can’t take anymore.
But then an argument fuels a moment of passion between them, and for Rex there is no backing down. He wants her, and he’s going to have her, even if no one can know.
But secrets only last so long, and when Rex’s temper gets the better of him, all could be lost. Nora is pregnant with his baby, and now wants nothing to do with him. Is there any way for him to win her back?

Rex stayed at his desk, waiting. He couldn’t hear what Frank was saying, and he wasn’t interested. Finally, they were all alone on the floor, and seconds later, Nora came in.
“Hey, I didn’t realize the time. I’m going to head out,” she said.
“Why didn’t you tell me you had an interview today?” He closed the file on the Richmond case, and looked up at her. Her hair was down, cascading all around, tempting him. The moment she had entered the office that morning, he had noticed her hair. Never had she worn it down. Looking at her now, he saw that she was dressed to impress. The skirt she wore molded to every single curve that she possessed, the white blouse highlighting her full tits and slender neck.
“You know. Frank told you.”
He got up from behind his desk. “Yeah, but I want to know why you told Frank, and you didn’t tell me.”
She licked her lips. “You wouldn’t even answer my question, and you would have probably made it next to impossible for me to go to an interview.”
“You want to leave?”
There was a pause, a slight hesitation.
“You’re lying.” He stepped closer to her.
“I don’t want to work for you anymore, and I don’t want to work in this office.”
“What have I done that is so damn terrible?”
“What have you done? You don’t even see what an asshole you are?”
“Oh, so now I’m the asshole because I expect a level of respect—”
“Respect! You treat me like a damn dog, and you have no respect for anyone but yourself. You’re the worst person I have ever worked for.”
Raising his voice, he closed that final distance. “You know what, fine, go elsewhere. I’m sorry I wasn’t the kind of boss to kiss your fucking ass.”
“I don’t need you to kiss my ass! You could have just been nice to me without all that crap. You’re mean. You’re a bully, and I want out.” She was yelling just like him.
“Is that what you want? You want me to tell you how wonderful you are, how nice you are.”
“No, I don’t want you to tell me anything because you know what, I’m not sticking around. You’re a horrible human being, and I’m glad that I know what it’s like to work for a scumbag. I’ve finally seen one.”
It was just too much. Rex didn’t know what happened next. One moment they were yelling, and the next moment he had her pressed up against his bookcase. Her hands locked above her head as he slammed his lips down on hers. She was so soft, so curvy, and he pressed his body against hers, needing her softness.

Oh how I hated Rex!!! He was everything I hate in a man!! Nora was more of a nice person that I would have been. As I continued to read the story I started to change my views on him but I still actually cheered when Nora finally told him off! When Rex started to change, I think my feelings started to change. He was still a jerk but you could tell his feelings for her were coming to light.
This was a wonderful story of enemies becoming lovers and how they deal with it. I love how Ms. Crescent weaves her magic with her readers and keeps them fully engaged until the end. Another thing I love about her books is we get to see the couple a few years down the road.

Nora wants to wilt, does she ever. But she knows if she gives in too easy he'll run their whole lives.

Form the first page I freakn hated Rex. He's such an a**hole. I couldn't imagine how, I could even like him. But somehow, somewhere along the story I did. I don't know how it happened. I guess, those a-holes knows how to win your heart. Lol
Nora was one of those nice and sweet characters. And I love more sassy with some crazy in the h. So, I would loved for Nora giving some back, when Rex’s was a d*** to her.
But still, Rex and Nora being such contrasting people, somehow fit together. Maybe they fulfilled each other with theirs differences.
This book is pretty good for quick with no big dramas read.
Oh, and if you are interested in Alaric, you can get his story in The Enemy's Daughter.
