Alex anticipates Hillary's rage, but she can't believe that this multimillionaire is holding her newest staffer to a nondisclosure agreement that demands reparation of 5 million dollars. Alex has only 48 hours to repair the damage. And with a vengeful Hillary P. watching the clock, the devil will have her due...

Review: I feel like I have mentioned this quite a few times on past book reviews, but one of my biggest pet peeves is when a novel feels to rushed. This book had so much potential, but it really should have been another 70-100 pages. I thought the book was so supposed to span over a 48 hour period, but it doesn't. The first half of the book takes place for around 3-4 months, while the second half is 48 hours. Because of this, the second half of the book felt way too rushed which made it seem completely unrealistic. With that being said, there were things that I did like about the novel, it wasn't a complete write off in my opinion. Just another one of those quick reads that demand little attention or thinking for that matter. It was a fun read and was certainly a page turner. Luckily because it is such a quick it didn't feel like a waste of time once I was done. 

Rating: 3/5
