Goodreads:  Bright, ambitious Sophie Landgraf has landed a job as a Wall Street analyst. The small-town girl finally has her ticket to the American elite, but she doesn’t real­ize the toll it will take—on her boyfriend, on her family, and on her. It isn’t long before Sophie is floundering in this male-dominated world, and things are about to get worse.
With the financial crisis looming, Sophie be­comes embroiled in a multibillion-dollar merger that could make or break her career. The problem? Three men at the top of their game, each with very different reasons for advancing the merger. Now Sophie doesn’t know whom to trust—or how far she’ll go to get ahead.

Kritters Thoughts:  Sophie has a job that is consuming her life and a relationship and friends and family from home who may not make it through this change in her life.  She must decide whether this is the job and lifestyle that she wants and what she is willing to give up for it.  

Being in my second job and where I will probably spend many more years, it was fun to read a book that reminded me of myself a few years back.  The right out of college, first job time of life was such a transition and trying to figure out where to commit your time was such a challenge.  I also loved how she had to make ethical decisions and the gut checks she had to make about the path she wanted to make for herself.

With a lot of financial chit chat, this book had some moments where I had to skip over a little and trudge through, but the heart of the story and the characters made up for the things that may have gone over my head!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from TLC Book Tours.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
