Blurb: She’s sexy, fierce, and a loud-mouthed know-it-all…and she’s completely off limits.

Cecilia isn’t your typical college student. Hell, she isn’t a college student at all, but that doesn’t stop her from applying for one of the biggest and prestigious enterprises in the Midwest. She wants it. She takes it. She doesn’t let anything get in her way when it comes to finding out the truth. When Bentley Leighton, soon-to-be CEO of Leighton Enterprises, meets “Ceci,” he’s instantly impressed. He doesn’t have time to train a new intern. However, when he sees her that first day, his intentions begin to change. He’s the boss. She’s the intern. Nothing can happen. It’s against the company rules. Then again, rules were made to be broken. What starts as innocent flirting becomes raveled up into so much more—secrets, lies, deceit.


 Well, where do I start? It was a fast-paced and gripping story, which holds your attention till the end and makes you want to pick up the sequel immediately ! I really liked the male protagonist, but a bit iffy about the female protagonist.

Ceci is a not a typical high school student, she is smart, determined and fierce. Her father was killed 7 years ago and she applies for an nternshop at Leighton Enterprises in hope to solve the mystery, which police wasn’t capable of doing due to lack of evidence and eyewitnesses.  She has to lie about her age and education in order to get the internship, but she gets the place and starts working under Bentley Leighton.The chemistry between Ceci and Bentley sparked immitiately they met at the interview. They both knew it was inappropriate, but they couldn’t resist to it.

The first installment ends with a cliffhanger, which leaves readers with several questions. Will Ceci’s and Bentley’s chemistry going to last? Will Ceci find out who and why killed her father? What happens between them, when Bentley finds her under the desk, where she was hidden after snooping in his office? What happens, when Bentley finds out the truth about Ceci’s real age?

The intern, Volume 1 has an interesting story line, enough mystery and romance, which will keep your interest until the end.
