Zani Best’s family has investments in Suberri Company. She is working undercover, at the insistence of her family, as a personal assistant to the CEO, Corbin de Villiers. Her mission is to do whatever it takes to find out if Corbin is selling company secrets to the opposition.
Corbin de Villiers knows right from the start that there was something not quite right with his new personal assistant but finds himself unwilling to fire her. Despite her less than stellar skills, Corbin decides to keep her close so he can keep his eye on her and try to figure out what she is really up to. Soon he finds himself tangled up in corporate espionage, Russian Mafia and Zani.
Little does Zani know that Corbin is not what her family has made him out to be and soon finds herself unsure of whom it is she can trust? From the first moment, she meets Corbin she feels a connection to him and finds it impossible to believe the accusations her family is making. Zani is unable to uncover any evidence that proves his guilt and soon begins to questions the validity of her families claims.
I found Ms. Nicholas created a confusing woman in Zani, who for all intents and purposes does whatever her family wants her to at any cost. The hero seemed to have more patience than even the higher than average man did. Ms Nicholas has an excellent concept for a storyline. However, I found it difficult to believe that a CEO of a company would be so careless with someone that may not be trustworthy. I found the characters rather stilted and boring which caused the story to drag in places.
