In the midst of all the fun, romance and passionate interludes, and there are quite a few moments of complete and utter abandonment, the author has incorporated some serious sub-plots into the story.
The gender inequality in the top tiers of the business world is still a huge problem, despite being well into the 21st century. The boy club still believes women are not cut out to be at the top or at all capable of leading. Becky has to deal with the insulting behaviour of her boss, who thinks women are better off barefoot, pregnant and serving their men.
As if that wasn’t enough she now has to compete for the position previously promised to her. Compete against Mark, her exciting and unforgettable one night stand. Someone she definitely didn’t expect to see ever again. Now they have to go head to head to prove which one of them is best at their job.
Sounds simple and it would be if it weren’t for the backstabbing, the betrayal and intense physical attraction between Mark and Becky. No room, carpet, elevator, table or chair is safe from their tumultuous physical relationship. This is certainly a very passion driven romance.
