Brooke went to work for a company developing drugs and it was sold and she became a vice-president in a large pharmaceutical company. She meets Chase Allman the CEO but still things don't go her way. From that point forward the story develops both main characters and challenges them with adversity, romance, some humor and more life's problems to make it one of the best books I have read in a long time.
Got a message on Goodreads from the author about his book-this one and directed me to Amazon. I really liked the description and
bought it and told him I'd post my review.
Starts out with Brooke just accepting a new job at Pharmcial where she is a vice president. At a board meeting she meets the head guy and can't even pay attention to what's being said. He's everything she'd want in a man, problem is she must remind herself is 'he's married'.
She is able to get together a team of other competent people to work with her but the whole department is dismissed.
The book also follows Chase and his son. We learn of his past marriage and that his wife wants the child but she was in rehab for a drug problem. He is having dreams of Brooke and knows he can't date her while she's in his employ.
He has NO idea that the people he hired had dismissed the department she worked for.
There is some sex and romance and a few other peoples relationships come into play to make this a really worthwhile story.
Love hearing how Chase takes care of his son Parker and found the child CD just the perfect thing to do for our grandson while on long car rides.
Lot of misunderstandings on both parts and their faith in God may be able to save each of them..
Loved hearing all the songs and lyrics along the way and finding out what really happened with Brooke and Tanner..
Especially enjoyed the detailed descriptions of the seashore and the food-made me feel as if I was there.
Things really heat up with action towards the end and I love how the book got its title and what they signify.
This book has it all, excellent combination of family, love, romance and work and action and travel and nature.
Pink Slips and Glass Slippers is the story of Brooke Hart, a successful business woman who is still trying to find her way after the loss of her husband, Tanner. She was working for GenSense, a research company, when it was sold to Pharmical Solutions and she decided to make the move along with it. Unfortunately, the new company is nothing like her old one. They are interested in only what will make them money, not the drugs that could save thousands of lives.
I have to admit to liking Brooke right away. She was incredibly smart and successful, yet that didn't impact her personality at all. She was very kind, hardworking and sensitive. I couldn't imagine the pain she was going through after such a horrific loss and that just made me cheer for her even more. She also reminded me a little of myself in a few ways, especially when she would get angry (although I'm not really sure that's a good thing).
Then we have Chase, the CEO of Brooke's new company and a very handsome one at that. Sparks fly between Brooke and Chase immediately but of course, nothing can happen since they work together. Chase is a loving father and only wants the best for his son, even if that means keeping up appearances where he'd much rather move on.
The relationship between Brooke and Chase may have started out with just a mutual crush, but eventually things start to heat up and once it did, I couldn't get enough. Things don't come easy for the pair though, and some pretty hilarious misunderstandings make them have to work that much harder to make things right. Even though there were some heavy subjects fused in with the romance, they didn't weigh the story down one bit. If anything, the personal backgrounds of the characters bring them to life and make their budding relationship all the more believable.
Overall, even though some of the romantic talks and metaphors came off as a little corny, I definitely have to say that the author did one heck of a job putting that "dare" to shame. There's a reason that this book has been so successful. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone who enjoys romance with a hint of mystery and a lot of substance.
