Six months out of law school, Rachel Pearce is completely disillusioned by her job hunt. Despite pounding the pavement with her Ivy League degree in hand, her job prospects are no brighter than the day she graduated. Then in a chance meeting with a former acquaintance, eccentric young millionaire Henry Walker, Rachel finds an unexpected opportunity: Henry is looking for a personal secretary. Swallowing her pride, Rachel sets aside her law firm aspirations for what she envisions as secretarial work—mountains of paperwork and filing. But when she finds her most demanding duty to be daily cookie runs for her new boss, she’s baffled by her unconventional job responsibilities.

As she’s pulled into Henry’s delightful whims, caught in a whirlwind of private jets and fancy dinners, Rachel finds herself inexplicably drawn to this handsome and charismatic man. But reality always has a way of intruding, and logic tells her that this adventure can’t last. When real life inevitably comes calling, Rachel must decide if she’s willing to trade in her dream of success in the courtroom for a chance at love.

I loved this book!! It was such a fun, fast read which had me laughing out loud multiple times. Rachel Pearce is an attorney without a job. She's getting desperate for something when she runs into Henry Walker, an ex-boyfriend of her best friend, Shannon. He offers her a job and she's not interested until her situation becomes dire. 

Once she starts working for Henry, she is given quirky tasks to complete, like mastering the copy machine, helping him with his book club and buying gourmet cookies every day. She is also exposed to the life of the wealthy and enjoys it but she can take it or leave it. Her friend, Shannon, is going through a major life change and that caused some funny scenes as well. 

I enjoyed all the characters in this book and thought they interacted well together. I wasn't that impressed with Henry at first but he quickly grew on me and I loved how their relationship developed.

I didn't even know this was a sequel until I was telling my sister about it and she told me there was another book, so I would say this definitely stands on its own. The first book is the story of her best friend, Shannon, and her husband, Nathan. This is the first book I've read by this author and I enjoyed her writing style a lot! I will be reading more of her books in the future!

Aubrey Mace lives in Sandy, Utah. She attended LDS Business College and Utah State University. When she is not writing, she enjoys cooking, traveling, gardening, playing the cello (badly), and spending time with her family and psychotic cat.
