FALLING FOR THE CEO
Finance genius Meredith Klaus prefers numbers to people, especially around the holidays. At least the large sum of money that’s mysteriously vanished from the company accounts will distract her from the ghosts of Christmases past. Until her sexy boss asks her to be his last-minute date to a fundraiser gala, that is, and the promise of a special evening calls to something long-buried in her.
Andrew Stanton, Manhattan’s best-known philanthropist, has worked hard building his reputation in the industry. He offers to work closely with Meredith to fix his company’s financial crisis, but the more time they spend together, the harder it becomes to look at her as just a colleague.
A beautiful dress. A handsome man on her arm. A challenge she can’t refuse. Can they find the missing money and fulfill their holiday wishes, or will Meredith be unable to overcome the demons of her past and lose her chance at happiness?
Meredith Klaus grew up in three different foster homes as child after the death of her parents. An awkward teenage, Meredith was called Klutzy Klaus all the way through high school. She was emotional abused and talked down to throughout her whole life. Getting a job at a top notch company is a boost to her self esteem. That potentially comes crashing down though, because as chief financial officer, it her responsibility to alert her boss of the missing money from her financial report.
Andrew Stanton is the CEO of Harbor Technologies. He knows he has brilliance in the form of his new chief financial officer, Meredith Klaus. When he cuts ties with his date to a very important fundraiser, he knows she's the perfect one to accompany him. What ensues is a cute and romantic story.
Falling for the CEO is a feel good story. The romance is hot once the story gets to that point. You have a genuinely written woman with low self esteem that meets the right guy to build it up. Meredith goes from someone never putting herself first to finally feeling a little more comfortable thinking that she's also important. Andrew is a very likable heroine. He might not have viewed Meredith as much more than a brilliant finance wizard at first but his views drastically change when they are forced to spend so much time together. Her finding the inconsistencies in the financial reports require long hours of togetherness and it allows Andrew to learn about her in more than a professional manner.
