Under Her by Samantha Towle
Genre: Contemporary Romance
A steamy and hilarious standalone romance from New York Times best-selling author Samantha Towle…
I’m used to being in charge. In and out of the office.
So, when my parents go behind my back and hire a co-CEO to help me manage my family’s business, let’s just say, I don’t take it too well.
Especially not when the woman they’ve hired is the one girl who hated my guts in college. She thinks I’m an overprivileged, womanizing man-whore. I think she’s an uptight, stuck-up bitch.
And, now, she’s here, in my office, telling me how to run my company.
I don’t think so.
It doesn’t matter that she has legs that go on for days or that I keep imagining bending her over my desk and showing her just how bossy I can be.
I’ve worked my ass off and paid my dues to get to where I am, and she’s not taking it from me.
No freaking way.
Morgan Stickford is about to learn the hard way that Wilder Cross is the only boss around here.

4 out of 5 ‘Take a walk on the Wilder side’ Stars
I just finished this book and I wanted to hurry up and write the review before I forgot what I wanted to say out it. This is the very first book I’m ever reading from Samantha Towle (*gasp* I know) and I have to say that I truly liked this story. It wasn’t overly dramatic or drawn out.
Wilder Cross and Morgan Stickford have been having a hate relationship since their college days thirteen years prior. Wilder was the privileged man-whore on campus and Morgan was a slightly frumpy working when I’m not study scholarship kinda girl. Morgan always had a thing for Wilder but after many overheard nasty insults directed her way (not to mention the sleeping with her roommate and good friend at the time), she vowed to hate everything Wilder and move on from her ridiculous crush.
Feelings are a funny thing. At times like these, they can really suck. The lusting after of someone you know is a jerk. You know it’s wrong but you can’t tell your mind any different. No matter how many times you rationalized it, or can’t rationalize it, it’s impossible to stop. I get this. It’s what made Morgan’s character so relatable. BUT…..I also get Wilder’s character too. Not the man-whoring or the privileged society part; but I get that he really had no idea what he was doing to hurt Morgan’s feelings in the first place. He was going about his business and unless she actually said something to him, other than scowling at him, then how was he to know how she felt. She made it seem like she hated him. And that’s how he took it.
This book was fun times and definitely some laugh out loud moments. Especially in the beginning…I mean, could a guy have worse luck than Wilder did in the beginning?? I mean, damn. Wilder was a bit too much sometimes with his confidence and all. Or over-confidence/arrogance I should say. Not totally unbelievable because we’ve all met some overly confident people in our lifetimes. *insert eye roll here*
And even though this is my very first book from Samantha Towle, it definitely will not be the last. Thank you for a great read, Ms. Towle. Looking forward to reading more from this author.
