Susanne is seeking a book and as usual, the account of the plot is just fabulous. Seriously, y’all crack me up.
I have a Help a Bitch Out problem, but I’m not sure if I even qualify… I haven’t read a romance novel in over ten years. I remember bits and pieces of this one story, though, that I really enjoyed when I was in my late teens. I’d love to find it again. Here’s the gist:
There’s this girl who lives with her grandmother in a small town somewhere. They don’t have much money and nan isn’t well. She needs an operation. This business man or lawyer (I can’t be sure) shows up in said small town. Somehow – search me – the girl ends up working for the Man in the Big City as his secretary? Assistant? I don’t know. Anyway, she doesn’t like him much at first (no way!) because he’s this coldhearted (no WAY!) business man/lawyer (BM/L) person. He’s also really INTENSE all the time. Capital letters justified.
Then I remember him doing a deal or something with her help and they go out to celebrate with his friend/brother/business partner, and she gets a bit tipsy, and will you look how she radiates. “And then he kissed her.” And then they fight have some really INTENSE moments and stuff. Also hot secks but they bring out the violence in each other, so remorse and stuff. More intensity has never been on a page. BM/L cries at one point, I’ll have you know. Oh, and nan has her operation and BM/L is really nice and sweet all the sudden. And then he has his friend/brother/business partner come over when he’s not home, I think, so he can check out the girl and give the relationship his blessing.And then it gets all happy and wonderful. *sigh*
That’s ALL I remember. No names, although she could be a Jo and he could be a Ryan… Oh man. Is this as hopeless as I fear? Can you help?
