When Felicity Carter wakes up naked in a strange bed, she has no idea how she got there. And no recollection of meeting the gorgeous man calmly offering her breakfast. Shocked and embarrassed, Felicity flees – hoping that their paths never cross again. The last thing she expects is to discover that her mystery man is Damon Fullbright, partner at the law firm where Felicity has just started work – and her new boss! Damon is appalled to find the young woman he rescued has been hired to work on his team. Apart from anything else, he doesn't need the distraction. Despite their early misconceptions, their appreciation for each other – both personally and professionally – begins to grow. But when Damon discovers what Felicity's been hiding, how will he ever trust her again?

When Felicity wakes up in a strange bed naked she begins to freak out. Running from the man she doesn't know she makes her way home and gets ready for her interview. I laughed a little when she walked into the interview and it was the man from that day. In all the years Felicity has been going to school she has never cut loose and the one night she does it's with her future boss.

Freaking out a little when she thinks he's a complete jerk, she tries to lay down some ground rules and he's not here for it, it's his firm and he isn't looking for someone to come and mess it up.  As we progress we discover that they both formed assumptions about each other based on the facts they can only see. Poor Damon has had a rough time of it and he's trying to keep from repeating his mistakes, when he realizes that Felicity wasn't who he thought she was he cut her loose.  Poor Felicity has given up everything she has had to fight the good fight and no one would listen or fight on her behalf; this was her last desperate attempt at right a grave mis-justice.

I get her motivation, but I have to wonder if the author has ever really been in a hurricane??? Because let me tell you that scene and the subsequent pages?? Wouldn't go down like that. I have lived through many hurricanes and I can tell you no matter how strong willed you are when one comes along nobody stands an effing chance. Until that moment I actually was loving this story.

I love how it eventually ends and I'm happy for Felicity. Damon had some serious making up to do and at least when faced with the task actually made an effort to correct his mistakes. I totally understand his reasoning, I'm sure I would have done the same thing.
It's a cute story with a few good plot moments and some overly dramatic ones. But still a cute story.
