Dylan Farrow puts on his pants every morning one leg at a time, just like everyone else at the Kerrigan Advertising Agency. He handles high-pressure projects with a fast turnaround. He's prized for his keen intellect and admirable performance. But how did he get where he is today-to the level of Junior Executive of Design Production?

Well, that involves how he takes his pants off... and for whom... 
Hoping to break through the glass ceiling under which she's been trapped for years, Valerie Caplan picks up her life and moves to Seattle. After hearing about the position of Senior Executive of Design Production from an art director at Kerrigan, she decides to apply. When she lands the big interview, she never thinks for a minute that she'll have any serious competition. She assumes that she has the job in the bag...until she discovers that the only competition has something she doesn't have-the willingness to go outside the office to impress Danica Stewart, their uptight female boss.

My Review

If you love a fun flirty office romances then this is definitely a book you will want to read!

The book opens with Valerie an independently strong woman who has just moved in Seattle in order obtain a job at a major advertising company.

But to her surprise she quickly learns that the hot ass man who rode in the same the elevator only moments ago is not only the hottest man she ever laid eyes on but he is also her competition for the position.

As if realizing elevator guy was also interviewing wasn’t enough, Valerie is quickly summoned into the interview room alongside Dylan; elevator guy. Here, she is informed that not only is he in the running for the same single position, but that she is to partner up with the sex on a stick Jr. ad exec and work as a team collaborating on a high profile campaign  
campaign that by its end will give one of them the job. Leaving the other…empty handed.

Now both Dylan and Valarie are educated, qualified and determined, so this should be really be anyone’s game.
But there is one huge difference…

The difference lies in their work ethics. Where Valarie works hard and has been slowly climbing the corporate latter by putting in late nights, sacrificing friendships and romantic involvement, she is simply all about her job and making it on her own. 
Despite how lonely she actually may be. Knowing a bit about Dylan's less than stellar work ethic, Valerie believes she's got this in the bag.

         While Dylan has ummm pretty much seduced and screwed himself into getting each position he has ever wanted and now with the prospect of an even bigger promotion he is convinced that he will seduce his new boss into giving him the position. Dylan feels he's got it in the bag.

And so the competition begins…

Oh, I forgot to mention that these two have a crazy attraction to each other and that they are determined to ignore it and focus on winning the job. Oh and that the campaign they have been given is for Labelle Lingerie!

What follows is a fast paced witty story that has sooo much chemistry and sexual tension that I was dying for Dyaln and Valerie to just friggin’ give into their sexual attraction! I loved all the competitive campaign moments; but for me the parts I loved were watching these two trying to deny their growing attractions and feelings for one another. I really like Valerie and how much of a little firecracker she could be and especially how she didn't take Dylan's shit. Most of all though, I loved how she finally takes the reins and goes for what she wants in the end. Dylan!

Dylan is your typical hot confident jerk-store of a man that you just can help to love. I loved getting his POV in the story; especially getting to witness the affects Valerie was having on him, especially as she models some sexy pink lingerie and basically demands him to give her what he's been aching for. Despite being a bit of a slut, but by books end he proves his worth as actual boyfriend material. 
And I was left a little bit smitten with this little -seducing- his -way -to -the -top bad boy of a man!

All and all this was a great read, Dylan and Valerie are great characters with awesome chemistry making this one worth the read!
