Uber asshole, real estate mogul, sexy as hell and CEO of Saddler Enterprises, where I now work. Heartbreaking circumstances thrusts me into motherhood, and on the plane ride home, I break down, kissing a total stranger and the angel offered me a solution; Saddler Enterprises. I’ve climbed the ladder and worked my ass off for months, and in walks, Adam, our intern. I try to keep things professional but all of a sudden, I start to find him funny and charming. His kiss electrifies me but that’s precisely when shit really hits the fan.
Suddenly, I’m on the mysterious Machlin Saddler’s radar. Big, bad CEO that never makes his way to our floor, now makes it his new stomping grounds. He lights my body on fire like no one has before. He’s alluring and gorgeous and I’m being pulled in two different directions. Only the new intern isn’t who I think he is. He’s the perfect stranger from the plane I took to start my new life with Kenzie. The perfect stranger I kissed. The perfect stranger I hate.
The breathtaking woman I haven’t been able to keep my mind off of, has been my downfall. I need her like a lion needs prey but I can’t screw up the plan. She’ll hate me, hell she already does, but the line between love and hate is very, very thin.
“Let me make this clear, Mr. Saddler. I will fuck you. Long gone is the woman that walked into this building on her first day and the fangirl from dinner, so keep your fucking hands to yourself until I tell you otherwise.”
Saddler’s Secret was a FANTASTIC start to a whole new series by Nicole Rodrigues. I completely DEVOURED this book in a single sitting. I was hooked from the very start. The story and the characters drew me in and I fell in love with the entire Saddler family.
Genevieve is heading back home after the sudden death of her best friend. She is travelling with a three year old, she is feeling all sorts of emotions and she just needs a miracle. Enter the handsome stranger, who happens to sit next to her on the plane. He helps with the adorable Kenzie and also gives Genn a job lead in Arizona. Machlin is the oldest of the Saddler squad, CEO and all around alpha male. He feels like he needs to sacrifice everything ot make sure his siblings are well taken care of and that they are okay. This man was like an onion. There are so many different layers to him and the more they are peeled back the more I like the man.
The banter between Genn and Mac was fantastic and hilarious at times. I love the sassiness to Genn throughout the story and she can definitely handle herself in tough situations. Their chemistry was OFF THE CHARTS!
This book quickly become one of my favorite office romances. It is a MUST READ and I can’t wait for more of the Saddler squad in the future books.
