Today, I’d like to explain why Carrie is NOT happy with how their transformation is turning out.
Carrie doesn’t think Trent’s old fiancée, alleged HR expert, is doing a good job. Actually, she’s not even doing a mediocre one. Honestly, she’s the worst HR person ever!
The only job she’s interested is become Mrs. Trent Lancaster.
Trent was once engaged to her, but finally got her to break it off by being constantly bad. Now years later, unable to hook any other wealthy socialite, she’s returned. Her first and only act of business was to remove Carrie from her EA position and put in Grant.
Pretty sure he majored in arrogance at college. And for some unknown reason, he thinks he’s God’s gift to women.
Then Trent hired Angela against Coco’s wishes.
Not only is she Grant’s girlfriend, (Strike one) but she’s incredibly nosy-possibly a Gossep undercover reporter (strike two) and she advises Carrie to do what Grant wants, because he’s going somewhere.
Also, Trent keeps calling her ANGEL instead of Angela.
So in essence, all Coco has managed to do is kick Carrie out of her job as EA and inserted a jerk in her place. Then Trent gives Grant a sex kitten to occupy his time.
No Systems Manager
No Sales Manager
No Finance Manager
No one of use.
Just a jerk and his sex kitten.
Seriously, as a trained change specialist, Carrie needs to take over. But to do that, she’ll need Trent’s support.
Will she get it?
Read the book and see.
Oh Stupid Heart
Book Two of: A Long Road To Love
Humorous Contemporary Disaster Romance
Carrie Hanson is in love with a different species: Trent, a pampered, uber-rich socialite who’s also her boss. Everyone keeps telling her it’s a train wreck looking to happen, but her heart wants what it wants. So despite the billion and one reasons not to, Carrie commits to this inter-species relationship. But while she’s off being trained for her new job responsibilities, a beautiful ex fiancée is working hard to get Trent back and Carrie fired.
Carrie glanced up at Trent. “Can I have one of your business cards?”
He handed one over, curious why Carrie wanted it. She flipped it over and wrote, These bills were given to Miss Claire as an act of charity. They are hers to spend.
She handed Trent the card. “Sign it, please.”
He signed the card and Carrie presented it to the old woman.
Her eyes rounded as she read it. “You know my name.”
“We’ve talked before.”
“Right. You’re the nice girl who pointed out how much cheaper it would be for me to buy a monthly card instead of paying the daily rate. I appreciated your advice. I’ve been able to buy better food and even had money saved up so, when I got sick, I could get well enough to keep working.” She patted Carrie’s arm. “I’m glad you got yourself a good man. You deserve it.”
Carrie glanced up at him and smiled. “He is a good man.”
She whispered in the old woman’s ear. Whatever she said cause the woman’s forehead to furrow.
She thrust the bills into Carrie’s hand. “I appreciate the thought, but I can’t take your money. But thank you both. You’re good people, and the world could use more like you.”
To his shock, Carrie didn’t argue. She only hugged the woman. “You are good people, too.”
Half the crowded train watched the fiasco. Great! Not only had the old woman rejected his act of charity, but a mob of commuters had witnessed his failed attempt at being a “good person.” His grandmother had to be thrashing in her grave.
