On the 3rd of August, I died. Well, not literally, but it felt like my life was over. Melodramatic? Me? Just a teensy bit…

When workshy socialite Magenta Bright learns that inheritance comes with one horrific condition, she mentally kisses goodbye to the money. Get a job and keep it for a year? Not likely.

Naïve CEO Anthony Shearman is persuaded to hire her as his PA, and Magenta decides to stick it out, if only because of her sexy boss. But between the bitchy receptionist, Anthony’s beautiful fiancée and not having a clue how to be a career girl, Magenta barely makes it to the end of her first day.

So, just 364 to go then…



Magenta is a 28-year-old woman, who hasn’t held a job longer than a few months. Her parents and sisters have helped her and she didn’t find anything wrong in that situation. It all changed, when her grandmother passed away and left money for all her granddaughters, but Magenta was the only one, who didn’t get the money that easily, she gets the money when she has had the same job for a year or when she turns 45. Magenta finds the situation unfair, but she needs the money and therefore has to find a job. That’s when her sister comes to the rescue and got Magenta a job interview. The job is absolutely perfect for her, as the boss is new to the job as well. Anthony took over the business after his father, even though he had other career choices in his mind. Magenta and Anthony start working together to build up the firm, because it wasn’t in a good place. Magenta and Anthony have a great work relationship, but they both feel attracted to each other as well, although there’s one problem-Anthony is engaged! Can Anthony and Magenta save the firm and will they eventually learn that they are meant to be together?

It was a funny and well written book that keep you turning the pages. I have to admit I didn’t really like the main character Magenta very  much at the beginning, but she grew so much throughout the book that I ended up liking her a lot. All in all it was a lighthearted and fun book that keeps you entertained.
