Publisher's Summary

She's sexy, fierce, and a loud-mouthed know-it-all... and she's completely off-limits. Cecilia isn't your typical college student. Hell, she isn't a college student at all, but that doesn't stop her from applying for one of the biggest and prestigious enterprises in the Midwest. She wants it. She takes it. She doesn't let anything get in her way when it comes to finding out the truth. When Bentley Leighton, soon-to-be CEO of Leighton Enterprises, meets "Ceci", he's instantly impressed. He doesn't have time to train a new intern. However, when he sees her that first day, his intentions begin to change. He's the boss. She's the intern. Nothing can happen. It's against the company rules. Then again, rules were made to be broken. What starts as innocent flirting becomes raveled up into so much more - secrets, lies, deceit.

Good story

If you could sum up The Intern, Vol. 1 in three words, what would they be?

Hot, poignant and frustrating- all in a good way though.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked both main characters.

Any additional comments?

I wish the 2 subsequent books had been available in audio format as well.

Joe Arden is a dream to listen to!

This is a review for Volumes 1 and 2. I honestly couldn't split them up.

Cecelia is devastated when her father is killed in front of her years ago. Not being able to let go of his unsolved murder, she sets out to apply for an internship at an investigative crusaders company. Her hope is to find some new information that will maybe solve her father's case and see that justice is served. Being a high school senior, Cece decides to impersonate her older college-attending sister, and gets the internship.

When the soon-to-be CEO, Bentley has been told to hire an intern, he wasn't expecting the likes of Cece. Trying to deny their instant chemistry, they work to keep things professional. Cece plans to get access to the various databases that will help get her the information she needs. When she and Bentley fail at fighting their attraction, and give in. It's seriously hot, and as they get closer to each other, Cece's terrified her deception will be revealed. Not to spoil anything, I won't give any more specifics.

I listened to the audiobooks, and Joe Arden was absolutely amazing in his narration. In my opinion,
these two volumes could have been one. The premise of the story was pretty good. There was a little dragging and repeating of the same topics, mostly from Cece. Being that the heroine is an 18 year-old high school senior, a lot of this is a bit far-fetched, and she seemed to have the wisdom of someone way beyond 18.

I haven't decided if I'm going to listen to the conclusion in volume 3.

Entertaining start of a trilogy

The story is interesting and easy to follow. It has romance, hot moments and a bit of mystery. It ends in a slight cliffhanger.
Narrators were doing a great job portraying both male and female voices.
