Miranda is a very conservative, very smart stock analyst who has a really bad day She loses 80 million dollars in one morning which completely throws her off track She runs into a very attractive man in the midst of her crisis and ends up having mind blowing sex with him This is extremely out of character for her Later she finds out that her erotic encounter occurred with the new owner of her company Miranda struggles to figure out who she can maintain her professional career while she is discovering a lot of new things about herself Max finds he is unable to keep himself away from Miranda and struggles to get closer to her until something happens to both of them and he feels that he needs to back away from their relationship for Miranda s safety and well being I liked how strong and smart Miranda is She has been excelling in a male dominated field for a long time, and it was great to see her realize that she could be herself a little , and still be great at her job Max was pretty wonderful for the most part although it is always frustrating to me when someone feels like they have to keep secrets and hurt someone under the umbrella of protecting them They definitely had some serious adversity to overcome, and the villain in this story is completely horrible and evil It was interesting to see how things got resolved, and I was hoping for the sakes of both main characters that they would be able to figure everything out One thing that puzzles me is the cover To me it gives a false impression of what a reader can expect I know you can t judge a book by its cover, but sometimes I can t help it I also think that a cover can give a general impression of the vibe of a book and this cover and story just don t match for me Overall, I enjoyed this book.
