Blog Tour, Rachel's Review: Screaming in the New Year by Jody Pardo

Title: Screaming In The New Year 
Author: Jody Pardo

Living a charmed life in one of the most remarkable cities, Maggie Silipo had everything she could ever want. She built a successful career for herself, had a beautiful apartment and a desirable lifestyle in which she got to travel. What more could she ask for? While the rest of the world was celebrating with loved ones, she was alone…working.
Blake Matthews owned and operated his IT Firm Leverage Logistics with offices in four corners of the US. Maggie was his right hand woman and his personal assistant. Fantasizing about her boss and wishing for more, Maggie watched from a distance as he charmed the ladies of Charlotte and New York City’s high society.
When Blake has an accident, he realizes just how much he needs Maggie. Now, not only is she his right hand, she’s much more. As Maggie carries Blake and Leverage Logistics, the dynamic between boss and assistant evolves and everyone is keeping score.


Rachel's Review~
This quick little read was my first by Jody Pardo.
Maggie is admin assistant extraordinaire.  She works for Leverage Logistics, sitting at the proverbial right hand of THE Blake Matthews.
Like any hot blooded, ready for love n lust, beautiful young woman, Maggie has the hots for her boss.  Yeah, Yeah... I know...pretty commonplace...but Blake and Maggie spend very little time together..until..
Blake is off hobnobbing with the beautiful ladies...ALL. THE. TIME.  But who's there when Blake has a snowboarding accident?  None other than Maggie!  They say distance makes the heart grow fonder...but does it?  I think being stuck with someone and having to rely on them breeds familiarity, lust and love.  Finally Maggie gets her shot.  And whew, it's a smokin hot shot that she gets.
This was a funny little read, with some sexy thrown in.  While it would have been  great to get a little more character is what it is...A little spicy, a little funny. A great addition to your kindle.
