Re Trophy Husband - Lynne Graham makes a foray into the long running 9 to 5 series in this very funny story of unrequited office love.
LG gives her own unique and entertaining spin on the topic here. Because while other HP authors give us the inner pining of a yearning h, LG wants to see what happens when it Re Trophy Husband - Lynne Graham makes a foray into the long running 9 to 5 series in this very funny story of unrequited office love. Because while other HP authors give us the inner pining of a yearning h, LG wants to see what happens when it is the boss who is caught up in the unrelenting claws of frustrated longing.
Given that this is LG's HPlandia and H's are bound by iron-clad HP Hero contractual obligations to be dominant manly alpha lurve club swingers, it is a pretty safe bet that they aren't going to sit at their desks and blush whenever their love object makes an appearance. When the story starts, Sara, the 23 yr old h, is hurrying home to the flat she shares with her evil cow of a cousin.
We learn Sara is an orphan who was very begrudgingly taken in by her snob and snot pustule aunt when she was a child. Sara's mum had little holiday romance with an Italian, came back with a baby and then sadly moved to a different plane of existence a few years later.
Sara is not a doormat, exactly. But she was made painfully aware of how limited the amount of goodwill was towards her in her mother's family and the snobby snot pustule aunt is the epitome of a bully. Even tho Sara is well aware that her aunt is a snot pustule, she does consider it a matter of personal honor standards to be appreciative of her aunt letting her live with them until she was So when her cousin Antonia's modeling career tanks and she loses her apartment, Sara agrees to let Antonia move in with her as she will be marrying her fiance Brian and moving to her own house soon anyways.
Plus Sara can't help but have a smidgen of utter glee that nasty bovine Antonia is getting some comeuppance for all her years on slime swilling behavior by going way down in the career stakes. Sara's cousin, Antonia, is a blonde amazon of a beauty and hates that she had to share even a fraction of a shadow of the family limelight with Sara.
Needless to say, this has led to years and years and years of Bovine Antonia trying to either destroy or co-opt anything that might belong to Sara. Unfortunately this also includes Sara's fiance, Brian. When Sara rushes home after the emergency phone call, she finds Antonia and Brian in bed together. Sara is utterly gobsmacked and somehow manages to stumble back to the office, where she works as a PA for a big time business guy, and down a coffee cup of brandy the other PA keeps in his desk for emergencies.
Enter Alex, the big time Italian business guy, who has been massively in love with Sara for over a year. But Sara doesn't even really see him, except as a lady buffet lurving arrogant tyrant with a knack for pulling off impossible deals.
Sara is a bit disapproving of Alex, tho she is too polite to say so. So it must have been the brandy that made her tell his latest dumped lady love caller that Alex is a slime swiller toe rag and the lady can do much better.
Alex seems strangely unimpressed that Sara is completely sloshed and not answering the phones. There are some really funny dictation attempts and Alex generously offers Sara the use of the company apartment as she haltingly explains the horror she just walked into.
When the other PA calls Sara to ask her to get Alex's brother Marco to sign some papers, Sara learns that Alex told Marco that he would pay 2 million dollars for one night with her. Sara's ego and self esteem are at an all time low. Her engagement and her dreams of a happy marriage and home are shattered too. So a two million dollar offer sounds lovely and Marco wanting to do a pin up semi nude photo of her boosts her ego a little too.
Alex shows up and freaks out over Marco and his suggestive lewdness, he punches Marco and then drags Sara out. Alex manages to get Sara back to his apartment, he seems pretty shocked that Sara was really in love with Brian and cancels a dinner party he had planned for the aftershock of Sara's betrayal.
So you guessed right, Alex set the whole in flagrante delicto scene up. He had one of his security staff check out Brian and discovered he was seeing Antonia on the sly.
They faked a call to Sara and that takes us to the start of the book. Sara is still too gobsmacked and boozed up to realize this. Alex tries to comfort a seriously distraught Sara by telling her about his own big failed love affair ten years earlier.
He met a lovely lady, things were great and then she dumped him and took off. Sara isn't feeling much better by Alex's travails in love, but after a nap and a roofie kiss or two, Sara is ready to revoke her unicorn grooming license forever.
Skip The Soul Mate, Find A Trophy Husband
Opinion: High-powered women have something to learn from men with trophy wives. Since creation, man has been an entity unto himself and woman has been his counterpart. First, God made man; then he made him a girlfriend. Men are the protagonists of our children's stories, the majority of our doctors, generals and CEO's, the president, Jesus, God, Allah and Buddha. All "men" are created equal.
The Declining Significance of Gender? Francine D. The last half-century has witnessed substantial change in the opportunities and rewards available to men and women in the workplace. While the gender pay gap narrowed and female labor force participation rose dramatically in recent decades, some dimensions of gender inequality—most notably the division of labor in the family—have been more resistant to change, or have changed more slowly in recent years than in the past. These trends suggest that one of two possible futures could lie ahead: an optimistic scenario in which gender inequalities continue to erode, or a pessimistic scenario where contemporary institutional arrangements persevere and the gender revolution stalls.
