If He Only Knew... - Debbi Rawlins

Creepy chick on cover doesn't seem v. into it.

 

Because I totally relate to a poor little rich trust fund baby and her almost gratuitous law degree from Yale...

 

The book starts out at her going away party. Not the going away party you assume; the going away party for her alter ego who has decided she can't take living on a legal secretary's salary and doing without her favorite booze and high class dining one more day. She's going home.

 

Chapter one is several weeks later when the former boss she had a crush on calls her out of the blue and wants to meet for dinner or something. The next 2/3 of the book is her hiding her identity from him while sleeping with him. I sort of wondered if she would ever have told him. Her sister, not realizing the poor guy was completely in the dark, arranged a double date and clued him in.

 

Near the end, she reluctantly invited him to a reception of some sort her parents were hosting. His client showed up drunk and said things to her in his (the H) hearing, prompting him to decide they were mostly just tolerating him, so he started to leave but changed his mind.

 

Epilogue has them back in NY (she was from Atlanta) so I guess they worked things out.
