One entire week with his arrogant smile and my unexpected naughty thoughts.
I might get fired.
He just might be worth it.
Kendall Tate is the most distracting woman I’ve ever met – and she’s my assistant.She’s irritatingly clever, and much too nice for the likes of me. I need to remain professional, even if the smell of her strawberry lip gloss is my kryptonite. No matter how much I want her, Kendall is off limits.
Growing closer to her might be a mistake.
I might just take the risk.

I’d be lucky if I didn’t murder my boss by the end of the week. Then again, I looked terrible in orange and was certain I wouldn’t like prison. Such a shame.

Miss Understanding was the perfect afternoon read. An office romance involving a bastard boss, the ridiculously accommodating assistant and many wrong impressions, I seriously inhaled this book.

Kendall Tate is the assistant to a boss that barely acknowledges her, nor her work. She has spent the last four months wanting to quit. Since that’s not a possibility, she passes her time dreaming about the little things that could possibly happen to Liam, the twat.. She doesn’t necessarily want to harm him, but would a voodoo doll be too much? Where she thought Monday to Friday was insufferable, she almost hyperventilated when she had to attend an emergency business trip with him.

If I ever wondered if I could be attracted to my boss, he only needed to open his mouth to assure me that would never happen.

Liam Davenport is in self-preservation mode. Perceived as arrogant and unappreciative, he has his reasons. Professionalism is king. He has worked extremely hard for his position at the law firm and has no time for distractions. Yet somehow Ms Tate has managed to worm herself under his skin even though he’s gone to extraordinary lengths to avoid that. However, Liam is completely misunderstood. Because once you take the time to peel back the armour, you will find a man irrevocably damaged. He is the master of self-sabotage and almost incapable of happiness…

I wasn’t enough, therefore I constantly push myself to do more.

Kendall never imagined that she could possibly be attracted to the likes of Liam. But watching their working relationship begin to simmer, was humorous in parts, sweet, sexy and heartbreaking. Who ever thought that non-relationships could work are idiots. Because nothing is worth compromising your self-worth over. It was beautiful watching Liam finally acknowledge what he rightfully deserved and what he could have with Kendall, once it slapped him in the face.

But I’ve come to realize sometimes the best things to ever happen are those you don’t plan. Like falling in love with you.”
