“Nicholas Williams is perfect.
And he’s perfectly unattainable, too.
Maybe that’s why I like the Alpha so much, because I know there’s not a chance in hell of someone like him ever going out with someone like me...”
Liam Davis is an Omega, and currently the Executive Assistant to the CEO at StockLow & Co. It’s a job he never intended on having, but after his ex-Alpha left him high and dry, he needed to find a way to support himself. Although, the hardest part of Liam’s job isn’t the expense reports clogging up his email. It’s the secret, unrequited crush that he’s developed on his boss.
Nicholas Williams is an Alpha, and the CEO of StockLow & Co. It’s a job he’s earned through years of hard work and devoting himself entirely to the company. However, ever since Liam Davis was hired on as his Executive Assistant, Nicholas is finding it hard to concentrate on anything besides the gorgeous Omega...
One day, while in a rush to work, Liam forgets to take his heat suppressants. To avoid a company-wide scandal, Liam ends up asking Nicholas for a huge favor:
He needs Nicholas to sleep with him, right now, to help get him through his heat.
This sets off a series of sudden twists and turns that neither Liam or Nicholas ever saw coming...
But could this unexpected situation lead them right into each other's hearts?

Liam has a massive crush on his boss and considers Nicholas completely unattainable, which makes him safe to fantasize about. Liam works his ass off for the very demanding Nicholas, wanting to prove omegas belong in the workforce. The problems start when he forgets his suppressants. Good thing Nicholas is there to help.
Nicholas lives for his job. As much of a workaholic and hardass he is, he does have some good qualities. He is a rare unbiased alpha, who believes omegas are as capable as any other in the workforce and wants to do what he can to support them. A couple of things throw him for a loop though. Liam's heat and the warning of a senior board member.
Suddenly, Liam finds himself in a fake relationship with his crush. Too bad he doesn't know Nicholas is hiding his own feelings. But he's the boss and doesn't want to reveal his feelings and make Liam feel obligated to feel the same. Liam believes his feelings are completely one-sided.
Liam and Nicholas fit. They are adorable together. Liam is sassy and I like it. As happens, problems ensue when they don't communicate (whhaatt? Not communicating causes problems? Who woulda thought!). One chooses to hide and ignore, the other decides that shit ain't happening.
This is an enjoyable read. It held my attention from start to finish. I liked the characters and the story. If you're looking for secret crushes turning into full-blown love while in a pretend relationship? This is for you. It was for me! I happen to love fake relationships turning into love. Ah, I love them so much. I could read a million of them! I'm excited to see what Lyons writes next.
