When Cassey Emerson graduated high school 3 years ago, she packed her bags and left the dusty trailer park she called home in the rear view mirror. Since then, she has worked hard to give herself the life, and career, that she always dreamed of. As the Publishing Assistant at Knight Media, her dreams are slowly but surely coming true…
But something is missing…
Kyler Knight is young, rich and the heir to the multi-million dollar fortune that is known as ‘Knight Media’ – the biggest and most successful media company in Chicago. When his father decides it’s time for Kyler to learn the ropes as successor, he didn’t think it would include working with someone like Cassey Emerson.
Their attraction is immediate and Kyler is everything Cassey should stay away from. He can’t give her what she wants, but that doesn’t stop him from pursuing her. When one passionate night changes everything, Cassey must decide whether or not she can accept what Kyler is offering, or walk away from how he makes her feel.
Suddenly, things change, lines are blurred, hearts are broken and Cassey is left to pick up the pieces after her hot, steamy relationship with Kyler becomes so much more… Can she move forward or was she always destined to fall?
A few (okay a lot) grammar/spelling/general editing mistakes, but I expect they’ll be cleared up before publication.
Also I think Cassey’s relationship with her parents is unique- they were the worst possible parents and she never once forgives them or cares for them at all. In other stories, there is usually a message of forgiveness, but here, the message was that you don’t owe these people anything if they weren’t there for you. Stand up for yourself. We didn’t hear much of her backstory, or how she got to where she was, but it didn’t seem too important.
Also- and this is true of a lot of books- the synopsis doesn’t really do it justice. There’s a lot more to the story.
Quinn: Her bond with Cassey was so strong. She was the perfect sister. I wish I had a sister like that. She went through some rough spots, but in the end, I was so happy for her.
Kyler: At first he seemed like the typical player, but it became obvious that he was falling for her. He was so sweet. And so attractive. I couldn’t not like him. (not that I was trying)
Jessa: Total jerk…but hey, every story needs one. A jealous ex.
Drew: Another total jerk. Hey I’ve got an idea…let’s set Jessa and Drew up together. I ship them. Jerks unite!
Jarred: He wasn’t quite as awesome as Kyler, but he definitely cared for Quinn and I’m glad they turned out okay.
Happy fairy tale ending. I wasn’t expecting anything different.
