From the Shelf: The Plan

Title: The Plan
Author: Qwen Salsbury
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Chick-Lit
Date read: March 31 - April 2, 2014
Dawn Rates:  (3/5)

Summary (cr: goodreads)

Day of Employment: 359

11:05 a.m.

Location: Cubicles outside Canon’s office.
Co-workers: Betting on how long Canon’s new PA will last.
Me: No doubts. Ms. Gum-smacker won’t last the day. I need to place my bet.
Manolo Blahnik’s New Fall Shoes: Mine. As soon as Madeline hands over my winnings.

Emma Baker has never spoken a word to Alaric Canon, nor has he to her. But she’s studied him every day across the office tundra for almost a year. Canon is hard and fierce, terrifying and beautiful. He’s also the most stern, unforgiving person Emma has ever seen. Emma’s co-workers run a betting pool for Personal Assistant terminations. There’s a separate pot for the day one leaves without crying. Not likely…Canon made a former Navy SEAL cry.

He has high standards and low tolerance. Everyone knows it. Everyone stays away. Everyone who can, that is. Except Emma. She can’t look away. Alaric Canon is the single most attractive man she’s ever seen. Bar none.

Canon has never noticed her. Not once in almost a year. She’s not even a blip on his radar. But she will be. His radar will be blipless no more.

It is a goal. Emma has a plan.

My Review: (also in goodreads)

Aside from the fact that Emma is kind of creepy and stalker-ish, I guess this book is quite funny. And because the genre is chick-lit fiction, expect the guy to be perfect. And when I mean perfect, everyone's dream and rich at that too. At first I had the impression that the writer portrays Emma as a nerd, with her use of sentences (yes, it is in her POV) and the way she sees Alaric Canon. All in all, I did enjoy it.

Till the next read...
