Everything Girl: Evelyn Mercer has always had a plan. She lives and breathes the plan. The plan and coffee.
Go to law school. Check.
Make Law Review. Check.
Get competitive internship. Check.
Land dream job. Double Check.
That dream job? Yeah, it’s a nightmare, and Evelyn is miserable with a capital M. When she reaches her misery threshold, Evelyn does the unthinkable and deviates from her plan.
Her unexpected new job takes her to Pinehaven Ranch in the middle of nowhere Montana where Evelyn is faced with her biggest obstacle yet. No coffee shops within a 30-mile radius and her new boss’ brother, former rodeo champion Jack Danvers. The three words that best describe Jack are stink, stank, stunning. He is perfection and he inexplicably seems to hate her on sight. But if there is one thing life has taught her, it’s that she still has a lot to learn and Montana is full of surprises.
“The original article was supposed to be part of their 40 Under 40 series in which they featured 40 of Chicago’s most influential citizens under the age of 40. Unfortunately, a photographer from the Tribune had spotted Ben with the commissioner’s wife and the story had changed direction.
“I did. It’s not…great.” I offered, unhelpfully.
“Yeah, well the board agrees with you.” He sighed. “They want me gone before the article is released.”
I sat up straight in my chair. “Gone? What does that mean exactly?”
“They want me to lay low until this whole thing blows over. They’re worried about what this ‘scandal’ will do to our stock prices.” His voice held a note of defeat I didn’t like. This was the same man who had negotiated multi-million dollar contracts without breaking a sweat. He had been described as cunning and ruthless, both in his professional and personal life. Ben practically grew up following his uncle around the boardroom. I doubted anyone knew this company as well as him.
“So, what are you going to do?” I asked, watching as he picked up a pen to twirl between his fingers.”
