Release Date: September 11th 2016 by JL Berg, LLC
Genres: Romance, Contemporary
My name is Roman Cavenaugh and I’m kind of an asshole.
Running a company isn't easy, especially when everyone expects you to fail, so being a jerk? It comes with the territory.
I don't have time to mess around, and I sure as hell didn’t see her coming.
Cara Hamilton—she was supposed to be off limits…a temporary employee brought in during my assistant’s maternity leave.
But, in the blink of an eye, she became so much more.
An obsession I couldn’t shake.
So yeah, I may be an asshole, but now, I finally had a purpose, and soon, she would be mine.
All’s fair in love and war…
From the cover to the synopsis, I was immediately intrigued with the story and it did not disappoint at all. Right at the beginning of the story we get to meet Roman Cavenaugh, a successful businessman whose CEO status makes everyone afraid of him. He is ruthless and always has high expectations, but that all comes to a stop when he gets a temporary assistant. It's all supposed to be business, but Cara Hamilton is different, and that is exactly what he wasn't expecting at all. Now as the two start to spend more time with each other, the more chemistry starts to grow, and soon he has to find a way to make Care his.
For Cara Hamilton moving to New York has been a huge step, especially moving from a small town in Nebraska. Now following her dream to the big city along with her boyfriend, she is ready to start a new life. Yet, after trying to find a stable job, she gets a last minute offer to be Roman's temporary assistant. This would have been perfect for her, but she never imagined just how much her life was about to change.
I absolutely loved reading Behind Closed Doors, there is a lot of chemistry between the characters that had me reading non stop. There is also character development in the characters throughout the story. Cara is nice and caring, she wants to make a name for herself in the big city, but transitioning from her old life to her new one has proven to be a bit hard. She has a boyfriend to think about, and their relationship is put to the test when they start to drift apart. On the other had, there is Roman whose past have made him the way he is now. He wants to prove to the whole world that he is capable of making the family business grow, and will not stop at nothing until he succeeds. It is when Roman finally meets his match that he is able to slowly let go of his past. Ultimately they have to decide whether they can be together or not. The ending was my favorite part, it's sweet and ties everything together. I would highly recommend reading this book, you will not regret it. :)
