The Plan by Qwen Salsbury

Day of Employment: 359

11:05 a.m.

Location: Cubicles outside Canon’s office.
Co-workers: Betting on how long Canon’s new PA will last.
Me: No doubts. Ms. Gum-smacker won’t last the day. I need to place my bet.
Manolo Blahnik’s New Fall Shoes: Mine. As soon as Madeline hands over my winnings.

Emma Baker has never spoken a word to Alaric Canon, nor has he to her. But she’s studied him every day across the office tundra for almost a year. Canon is hard and fierce, terrifying and beautiful. He’s also the most stern, unforgiving person Emma has ever seen. Emma’s co-workers run a betting pool for Personal Assistant terminations. There’s a separate pot for the day one leaves without crying. Not likely…Canon made a former Navy SEAL cry.

He has high standards and low tolerance. Everyone knows it. Everyone stays away. Everyone who can, that is. Except Emma. She can’t look away. Alaric Canon is the single most attractive man she’s ever seen. Bar none.

Canon has never noticed her. Not once in almost a year. She’s not even a blip on his radar. But she will be. His radar will be blipless no more.

It is a goal. Emma has a plan.

I had been pretty excited to read this book because I've heard some good things about it.

Unfortunately, the book didn't have the same effect with me. I'm so sorry. I tried. I really did. The proof of that is that I was able to finish the book and didn't totally abandon it to DNFland.

I didn't feel the chemistry between the two main characters. Not to mention that I was a bit distracted with the writing style. At another time it would have appealed. But not just this time. The fragmented sentencing just added to my frustrations towards the story. Ugh.

To make a short story shorter, my personal score is given for the fact that I reached the last page. Hooray for me!

Final verdict: 4/10. So so...
