Can you call it an office romance if we've never actually met?
Sara has a kick-ass life. She has loyal friends, works from home, and sets her own hours as a virtual assistant.
Perfect... Except Sara doesn't actually exist.
She's just a borrowed name I use when I'm hiding behind my computer screen. But pretending to be someone else is the only way I can earn enough to make up for the mistake I made and the lives I ruined.
If I hadn't typed my new boss' name into that search engine, none of this would be happening. I would've kept imagining Hayden looked the same way I pictured all my other clients--late fifties/early sixties, a little soft around the middle, and a lot more forehead than hair. I couldn't have been more wrong. Seriously, how many VPs look like they go model underwear after leaving the office?
Damn it, if I'd never found out what an amazing man Hayden is, I wouldn't want to cry every time he calls me Sara. But hey, that's life, right? And nobody's life is perfect.
My life is pretty damn perfect. I'm married to a beautiful woman, live in a luxury apartment, and am prepped to take over the multi-billion-dollar company my father built.
Perfect... Except all of it is a lie.
My wife is madly in love with someone else, my career is meaningless, and I forgot how to live, let alone be happy.
But when I hired a new assistant online, it finally occurred to me that life wasn't meant to be endured. It's meant to be lived. Without Sara, I never would've known what it feels like to be happy or to want someone this badly. It's unimaginably stupid to fall for someone at work, but I can't seem to stop it from happening. I'd give up everything I have to be with her, and I still have no idea what she looks like. That has to change.
Unfortunately, the only way to get what I want is for a lot of good people to lose everything they have.
*****There is no cheating in this novel. **Hayden is far too noble a man to hurt and disrespect a woman like that. Trust me, you'll understand when you read the book. Standalone contemporary romance/romantic comedy (no cliffhanger)***
