Jillian has had it with domineering chauvinistic boss, Mike Furie.  Who cares if he is the wealthiest, sexiest man alive? Heís a jerk!  As his highly paid PA, she has given up any chance of having a real life. And for what?  He doesnít even see her as a woman!  Seven years of cleaning up his messes has driven her to the brink.   He calls her at the last moment to fly to Aspen to run interference on a man-eating model.  Itís the last straw.  Sheís done and plans to tell him where to stick his job.  The last thing she expects is to wake up naked next to very man she hatesóand who makes her crazy for him in every way.

This story made my head spin leaving in its wake a few other embarrassing reactions, which means I was nuked by a devilishly steamy read.  Fran Lee, where have you been all my contemporary-romance-reading-life?  After reading Jillianís Job, it is time for me to backtrack and devour anything else Ms. Lee has published.  This is a combo of Two Weeks Notice meets Sex in the City!  Hmmm.  Maybe we should add some extra sizzling heat to that description.  Turn it up by another 100 degrees with a doubled heat index that would make a Texan wince.  Jill and Mike duke it out, make-up, and get down into some heavy action that wonít quit.  Thereís more to this powerhouse pair than just the hot-off-the-printers-sex.  Neither are just a pretty face and a fat checkbook.  The character development more than makes up for the gratuitous sex scenesóahem, you donít see me complaining.  My chief complaint is that this torrid tale was not longer.  What a tease!  I wanted more from this delightfully talented author with the wicked imagination.  Who says contemporary romance is dead?  With creative writing like Ms. Lee, Iíd say itís time for me to take a break from my paranormal sci-fi fix (like now) and catch up on the progressive goodies under this genre. Elloraís Cave, take a bow for snatching up this gifted lady and sharing her with what Iím sure will be an ever-growing mountain of fans and readers.
