Aggie the Horrible vs. Max the Pompous Ass
One’s playing a game. The other’s keeping score.
When wild-child Aggie Johansson shows up for an interview with the last person she’d ever want to work for, golden-boy entrepreneur Max Treadwell, she has one goal—to not be offered the position. While she hates to disappoint the two matchmaking grandmothers who’d pressed Max to hire her, she wants nothing to do with a pity job. Besides, the guy could easily win Mr. Pompous Ass of the year.
The last thing Max wants is to offer Aggie a job. The woman, a mixture of bizarre and annoying, has gone through at least a half-dozen employers this year already. He might’ve promised Grandmother he’d hire her, but if Aggie doesn’t take it because he’s more than a little un-charming, that won’t be his fault. After all, his company is on the brink of a major land acquisition, and the last thing he needs is a screw-up as a personal assistant.
With neither of them willing to disappoint their grandmothers, the interview becomes the stuff of legends, and somehow, before either can blink, they’re suddenly stuck working together.
Aggie’s determined the only way out is to be the worst assistant ever and get fired…
Max knows his grandmother would kill him if he fired Aggie, so he’ll just have to be so awful she quits…
But what happens next, no one could have seen coming.
This book was a fun, light, fast paced read. I really liked the connection between the characters and I liked Aggie’s ideas that she had. She seemed like a fun character. I liked that she tried to make Max think outside of the box a little.
The grandmothers were also fun and cute as well. I liked their little story line and what happened to them at the end because of the story.
My heart broke when Aggie went through her struggles during the story.
There were some things that were predictable and the romance did seem like it was instant.
I still liked this book because of the fun characters and the fast pacing. This was a four star rating. Thank you Netgalley and publishers for allowing me the chance to read and review. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Thank you for reading!
