Title: The Specialist
Author: Anna Hackett
Series: Norcross #3
Executive assistant Harlow Carlson is having a bad week. She is reassigned to work for the bossy and sexy tyrant Easton Norcross, her father is in trouble and has gone missing, and she has been attacked on her way home. While he may be a workaholic, Easton steps up to keep her safe and help her find her father.
I rarely read office romances but this one really worked for me. Easton Norcross finds his new assistant extremely sexy, organized, and also very sassy. He keeps her at a distance until she gets attacked on her way home. After that he refuses to deny his feelings and will do anything to protect her. Harlow was perfect for Easton because she stands up to him and is constantly pushing his buttons. Easton was the standard protective alpha male with some scars from his past. He could also be surprisingly sweet at times, which really made me love him more.
Harlow is a very efficient and independent woman. Her upbringing has taught her to take care of herself and not to rely on anyone. She struggles to allow Easton, and the rest of the Norcross siblings, to help him with the threat against her father. Harlow is a heroine that I instantly fell in love with. I just loved how efficient, smart, and sassy she was. She also wasn’t afraid to fight back if she needed to or to put herself in danger.
This was just a great addition to the series. Harlow and Easton had a very steamy and suspenseful relationship that hooked me from the beginning. I couldn’t put the book down really. I really can’t for Vander’s story because that scary man really needs some love.
