Ashley is down on her luck and needs a job and money. Her roommate sets her up with a job helping at a catering gig and warns her of the mysterious man who has scared off many people. Ashley decides to take her chances and approaches him with some champagne but quickly runs off when the catering manager shows up. The mystery man follows her and they have a steamy encounter in the backroom which has them both wanting more but still not knowing who the other is. He leaves Ashley to recover while he runs to interference to prevent others from bothering her.
Trying to clear her thoughts, Ashley looks at the job board at her job and sees that there is an advertisement for a house manager. While she does not know exactly what the job entails, she is up for it as she needs a different place to live. She calls and goes for an interview and is given the job if she wants it. The master of the house comes up just as she is getting ready to leave and collect her belongings. It turns out that he is the mystery man.
While Zander had wanted to find the girl, this is not how he expected to find her but he is happy and wants to see what will happen. He advises Ashley that he expects her to also perform some administrative duties for him. She agrees to this and wonders exactly what he means and if she is up to the challenge.
I enjoyed this book. Zander is your typical billionaire, at least how they are portrayed in fiction, as he is in control and command, and knows what he wants. Maybe someday I will meet a true billionaire to find out if this is the true way of their actions!
This book is also very size positive as you can imagine just from the genre it is. Ashley is a size 16 and while she has body issues, Zander loves her body and her curves. He hires a personal shopper to help Ashley with her wardrobe, and when the shopper complains about Ashley’s size, he immediately sets to work making sure that the woman will not work again.
