Stella Rawson is a widow and the sole owner of a large successful electronics company after the death of her husband Mark Since she is beautiful and was considerably younger than her husband she d had to prove herself to the company to show them that she was deserving of the management position Mark had put her in Now that she s in charge of everything Stella works doubly hard to be seen as than a figurehead and to be respected by the company s board members all of whom are male When she pushes for the hiring of a young brilliant whiz kid educated in America for an important management position the board members are suspicious because Russ Langford all of twenty five years old to Stella s twenty nine is also lean tall and ridiculously good looking Stella who has to be beyond reproach at all times must prove to her board members that Russ was hired due to his brains and technical know how and not for his abs and pretty blue eyesLuckily Russ is brilliant self assured and gains the respect of his team right away Upon getting to know him Stella discovers that it is not so easy to stay cool and professional when a mere glance from the man gets her all hot and bothered Though Stella is initially reluctant to admit it Russ is not only a treasure to the company but is also easy to talk to and hang out with after office hours They develop a uick rapport with each other and at first only a mild flirtation and Stella is careful to keep their friendship out of the office But the friendship develops into something a little when the casual end of date kisses turn into long passionate embraces and desperate groping sessions Stella finds herself falling headlong in love with Russ and begins to steadily go out with him and even eat lunch with him at the office though they remain totally professional when others are around uncaring when people in the company start to talk Or at the very least it doesn t bother Stella at first Until one board member who has designs upon Stella s person points out that Russ is indeed a very clever very ambitious young man eager to make his own path in the business world and what better way to do so than to seduce the lonely lovelorn love starved widow into marrying him so he could get his hands on her very successful company Stella brushes this off at first but niggling doubts soon begin to take root After all she and Russ have yet to make love even though they ve had a few close calls and Stella realizes she needs that intimacy When Russ confesses his love for her and proposes marriage but still holds out on the sex Stella begins to get suspicious herself Is Russ playing her after all stringing along the rapacious and love starved widow with promises of sexual delights in exchange for matrimony Why would they have to get married Why couldn t they just be lovers for now Could the vile innuendoes and vicious gossips be true and Russ really only wants to get his hands on her money and company Though Stella has moments of insecurity about their age difference ooh four years big whoop she is really worried about whether Russ is as emotionally invested in their relationship as she is especially when she sees him out with another girl younger and prettier than Stella at the fair while she is there with her goddaughter After all while she could be in love with him Russ feelings for her could be casual and not as deep and she really didn t want to risk another heartbreak since she had loved her husband very much and was utterly despondent when he died Another really great aspect of this story is the pacing While Stella and Russ are obviously instantly attracted to each other their relationship is allowed to progress organically and they start out as friends who enjoy each other s company they play Scrabble chess or just sit together companionably I especially enjoyed that scene on the beach not to be confused with the Other beach scene which tickled me pink where Stella is lying on her stomach sunbathing and Russ comes up to rub lotion on her back and Stella becomes breathless with anticipation but nothing else happens I also liked how Stella s grief and love for her dead husband was dealt with It wasn t just shoved by the wayside to make room for this newer hotter love but actually explored It was also very refreshing to read about a heroine who had loved deeply before the hero arrived and even had satisfying sex life with her husband I m happy that dead husband wasn t a brute a louse a cheat and was genuinely loved by the heroine I hate it when a previous love is made to look bad just to show that the heroine has never found love like she has with the hero eye rollAnd shocker Stella s worries and insecurities are actually fairly relatable and reasonable and not overly neurotic Russ is a dreamboat though he does stumble a little near the end and ventures into whiny man baby territory for a hot minute It s also refreshing to read about a hero who is not mine mine mine all the time nor overly grab happy and just wants to be seen as a man in his own right Just the perfect amount of alpha tendencies to make him sexily grrrowly and dangerous but not enough to turn him into an alpha hole with just a dash of beta to make him charming and sweet Really really liked this book I think it s gonna go in the keeper shelf

Stella who inherited her husband s company after his death has just hired young and handsome Russ Langford as a new project manager She s ribbed by some of her senior execs because they think she s enad with Russ but they re mostly just jealous because they want Stella Turns out she is attracted to Russ and he to her but she s certain that she s way too old for him and that a relationship with him would look bad at work and affect her authority Russ though is persistent and charming and Stella can t resist She falls in love with him But her self esteem gets in the way and whenever she sees Russ with a younger woman she knows she can t possibly hold on to him long term In addition she doubts Russ s motives for wanting to be with her That was probably a really poor summary I sort of saw this is something of a historical document For one it s written while computers were just becoming a thing and the way the characters talk about them and discuss them is so very telling of the times I have to imagine that people in 1984 were reading this and sort of in awe at the descriptions of the capabilities and applications of such technologies When they got on the topic of RAM I was waiting for them to drop a number like 16 MB as some sort of impressive number Things have certainly changed in 30 years haven t they In addition whether intentional or not this author really puts out a commentary on sexual harassment in the workplace Poor Stella is basically sexually accosted by her own underlings and the one asshole talks about her lack of consent like it doesn t mean anything Even as a boss it seemed she had little recourse for avoiding unwanted sexual attention other than to avoid the man She apparently didn t want to fire him because he did good work for the company and it put her in a difficult situation Likewise the way her co workers perceived her and the gossip they spread because she was dating another co worker added some nuance to the situation I have to wonder if this was indeed the sort of thing women could expect in the workplace in 1984 Unfortunately I have no experience with that since I was in kindergarten at the timeAs for Russ and Stella as a couple this was indeed pretty angsty and dramatic It put me in mind of a tennis match where the dramatic angsty feelings kept bouncing back and forth between Stella and Russ It was definitely entertaining But I definitely liked the role reversal thing here For once it s the guy who is inexperienced with relationships it s heavily hinted at but not explicitly stated that he s a virgin Russ is intent on a some sort of relationship with Stella but doubts whether she s serious about him given her behavior and comments to others He keeps coming back for though because he loves her Russ has plenty of angry moments since Stella is pretty frustrating but this mostly stems from her self esteem and the bravado she needs to put forth in order to run her company She is a widow and still very much loves her husband but you never really get the sense that she feels guilty for moving on though This is very much how I like things to go in this situationno sense that the hero is second best or a second choice What did seem strange to me but is probably a product of the times was Stella s insistence that her being 3 4 years older than Russ was a deterrent to them having a relationship She talks like she s some ancient crone at 29 turning 30 and he s a teenager or something She also seems to think that 30 is today s 50 or something Nowadays they say 30 is the new 20 and all that but wow I did really like that the author threw in a contrast in ages Stella s husband had been 15 years older than her and it was no problem but Russ being 4 years YOUNGER is a major issue for her That was a nice touch and possibly another commentaryI like to think it was deliberate So this was a very entertaining story overall It wasn t steamy sexual or anything but there s chemistry and passion between the MCs and I have to consider the beach scene one of my favorites view spoiler For some reason the idea of a guy being so excited that he can t control his reaction is super sweet and sexy to me hide spoiler
