Title: Screaming In The New Year
Author: Jody Pardo
Living a charmed life in one of the most remarkable cities, Maggie Silipo had everything she could ever want. She built a successful career for herself, had a beautiful apartment and a desirable lifestyle in which she got to travel. What more could she ask for? While the rest of the world was celebrating with loved ones, she was alone…working.
Blake Matthews owned and operated his IT Firm Leverage Logistics with offices in four corners of the US. Maggie was his right hand woman and his personal assistant. Fantasizing about her boss and wishing for more, Maggie watched from a distance as he charmed the ladies of Charlotte and New York City’s high society.
When Blake has an accident, he realizes just how much he needs Maggie. Now, not only is she his right hand, she’s much more. As Maggie carries Blake and Leverage Logistics, the dynamic between boss and assistant evolves and everyone is keeping score.
Maggie has been working for Blake at his IT firm for years. She feels invisible to him and they have only seen each other a few times in passing. She is his right hand man in NYC and goes to NC for a few days every so often to work out of Blakes places there. Normally he's not there and this time is no different. Well maybe it is when she catches him screwing someone else. But her feelings have always been kept inside. Blake is tough as nails and likes to play but when he needs Maggie she comes. Feelings get in the way, but will he ever see her more than just his employee? And with the new year looming can she move forward and be happy without someone by her side?
