Temping Is Hell by Cathy Yardley
WORST. JOB. EVER.
Kate O'Hara can't wait until this temp assignment is over. The woman who hired her is a psychotic pageant queen, her coworkers are convicts-turned-clerks, and it's so boringly corporate it makes her skin crawl. Even her sexy-as-sin boss, famed billionaire Thomas Kestrel, isn't enticement enough to keep her there. Once she makes enough to pay off her bills, she's out. Or so she thinks...
WHAT THE HELL?
Next thing she knows, she's accidentally signed over her soul. Literally. And she's discovered Thomas's real mission: to kill thirteen bad guys in one year, in order to get his—now his and Kate’s—souls back.
IT'S NOT JUST A JOB. IT'S A MISADVENTURE.
From learning to boost the morale of some paper-pushing demons to navigating her way through blood-red tape, Kate has to work closely with her super-hot supervisor and get her flaky act together, before somebody clocks her out—p permanently!
Cute story - I haven't been reading a lot of PNR so this really hit the spot :)
When Kate was sent to the big corporate offices for a Temp job, she got more than she bargained for.
Her boss, Maggie - lol It's hard to like Maggie, but she makes easy to see through her shell - she's a bitch - she tries hard to make life miserable for everyone else, but she has her reasons :)
When Kate tries to make more of the job than Maggie has to offer, she ends up with extra work. Staying late to finish up, Thomas, The Billionaire owner of the company stumbles into her office.
Now the attraction to Thomas is there, and Thomas seems to find a strange attraction to Kate, but they don't think twice about it. They have a nice friendly chat and that's it.. right?
Next day Maggie gets mad at Kate for over stepping her boundaries. Knowing that the company has secrets that needs to stay hidden, she tries to Fire Kate.
But when Thomas walks in, he likes the extra stuff that Kate did for the company, and can see how it's all helpful, and over ruled the whole being fired bit.
Now Maggie is furious at Kate, so she sends her downstairs to Contacts -
Down Kate goes, and what she finds down there is beyond anything she ever imagined!
The story was cute - funny and different - I was impressed with the whole getting your soul back bit.
Thomas had sold his soul all in the name of Love, and when that backfired, he wanted nothing else but to get it back. hiring Yagi to help him get his soul back seemed like the perfect way.
Yagi wasn't my favorite character. He was all business and that was it. But he's a good guy and is very thorough.
And when he see's Thomas making decisions about Kate that complicate things, he pulls back and lets Thomas decide what's more important.
Kate gets in over her head. No one can understand HOW she can be so helpful, especially with the "basement boys" but she is. And when she learns about what's REALLY going on, she starts to get scared.
Kate is a strong girl, She doesn't always think with her head though. She thinks more with her heart. Trying to help every little lost puppy, or Demon as this book goes, isn't always the right thing.
So when she meets up with Victor Klaus to give him a warning, Kate finds herself deeper into Thomas's life than she ever thought she would be.
Like I said, cute story :) Recommended to those that love a cute PNR - not a lot of Romance, but it's there :)
