Fresh out of film school at UCLA, Sydney Andrews is on her way to living her dreams. A job with one of the top five film production companies in the world seems almost too good to be true. On her very first day of the job… she realizes it probably is.
Enter Simon Mulroney, the handsome and cocky CEO, who uses people as if they’re extras in his life. With his careless attitude, he treats everyone like they’re beneath them… until his new assistant walks in and gives as good as she gets.
The chemistry between Sydney and Simon is undeniable, but so is the mutual distaste. Determined not to back down, Sydney digs in her heels and fights back. And in doing so, may be the only person capable of breaking her beautiful bastard of a boss. If he doesn’t break her first.

Behind The Scenes
Sydney leaves her small town in NC and moves to CA to chase her dreams. When she lands a job as an assistant at a movie production company she's thrilled to get her foot in the door.
Simon is her boss and he's a bit of a mystery. He took over the family business from his dad and he is determined to prove himself. That's really about all we know about Simon. Remember when I said he was a mystery? Well, he is. We don't really ever get to know what makes him tick. We know that he is a single good looking guy but that's about it.
This was a quick easy read but I found it confusing at times. Although the relationship between Sydney and Simon is the central part of the story I just don't think we really got to know either of them. Sydney has two roommates that are funny and seem to be very protective of her. Eryk, one of her roommates, takes up a good portion of the book with his banter and guy problems. And in the end I think we know more about him than anyone else.
If you're a fan of Jessica Blake you will probably enjoy this book. Personally I would have liked to see the characters and the story developed a little more. It wasn't an overall bad book but it just didn't work for me.
