Billionaire Kaden Barnes has a reputation for being difficult and always getting his way.
Enigmatic and exacting, he's unable to keep an assistant for long. Enter his newest hire, Lexie Parker. She's no-nonsense, efficient and all business. She's also hot as sin and soon starring in Kaden's dirtiest fantasies.
As their passion for each other reaches a boiling point, neither can control the explosive outcome when they finally give in to their desires. He may think he's calling the shots, but for this bad boy, going down easy has never felt so good.

I loved getting to know Kaden and Lexie. She is a strong female who starts to fall for her boss who goes threw assistants like crazy. They make a great team. This book gripped my attention from the beginning and even though it is a very predicable story I couldn't put it down.
I loved the secondary characters in this book as well. I can't wait to get to know them more.
While the book itself is in a dual POV, the audible version only has a female narrator. Personally this isn't my favorite. I prefer for a male narrator to do the male chapters/POV. But it works well enough with this book. The narrator's voice is soothing and does well between narrating and changing tone for the different voices.
Kaden is a genuinely stand up guy, always wanting to do the right thing. It's kind of surprising because so many people have betrayed him. His life experience has proved that especially women continually screw him over. That's caused him to have deep trust issues even when it comes to letting any women in just, even a little bit.
Lexi is loyal, caring and honest. She is so used to caring for others and selflessly gives up her own needs and wants for the care of others. Because of this, it leaves her no time for relationships and even if she could make time, she's too nervous to risk it. Her past experience has shown that other men aren't as willing to share her when it comes to her caring for her sister's constant needs. Family is more important than anything and Lexi won't risk getting involved with anyone and ruining the relationship between her and her sister.
Lexi becomes Kaden's personal assistant. It's at a time in his life that is especially stressful and he's surprised to find out how much she helps balance him. But he still can't help but be wary about her. In an attempt to protect his heart he tries to keep her at an arms length. Of course Lexi being the caring and compassionate person she is, she is set on breaking through Kaden's walls and being there to help support him. There's a bit of drama from the outside that threatens to tear these two apart. Given their priorities and insecurities it's hard for each to let the other in. But love proves to be stronger than any other factors.
Overall it was a good read. The characters strong, the storyline good. Some drama and angst but not overwhelming or distracting. The secondary characters were interesting and I wouldn't mind reading more about them in future books.
Love listening to audio books.
This book is an erotic romance.
Kaden Barnes is use to getting his way well almost he just cant keep an assistant, but when his new one walks in the door, not only puts him in his place and in a discreet manner dismiss him. He is not use to that kind of treatment from the opposite sex, but the more he learns about her, it is not only he attitude that has captured him, it is her heart and he wants it all for himself.
Lexie Parker has her hands full, her mother is mentally ill and her twin sister is bi polar as well. this gives her a limited social life since she is caring for said sister. When certain events take place and her sister is getting worse placing Lexie's job on the line she finds that she is caring more about her feeling for her boss than her sister. She might have to choose.

This is the first book in a new series, but can also be read/listened as a stand alone, by Carly Phillips. Lexie is the care taker of her twin sister so she ends up taking a position as the assistant to a quirky Kaden Barnes, billionaire tech ceo with a past. There is some suspicious activity and wonderful story telling. You just don't want to put this book down. This couple has great chemistry and respect for each other. Will they be able to work through their trust issues. Can't wait for the next book in this series to see what's going on.
Sophie Easlake is a great narrator and always makes it difficult to turn the book off, she keeps you interested and wanting more.
I love every single gel one of Carly Phillips books, she never fails to make you want to listen or read the whole book. She really is a brilliant author. So looking forward to book 2
