Because She Can - Abridged
By Bridie Clark
5 hours 57 minutes
Claire Truman has spent six years at a top publishing house patiently waiting to be promoted to editor and stretching her ridiculously small salary as far as it will go. But her life is about to miraculously change. Fresh from an ugly breakup, she is dragged by her best friend to an art gallery opening where she bumps into the man she lusted after all through college: Randall Cox, a man with friends in high places.
When the top editor at a rival publishing house calls her the next morning, Claire suddenly finds herself with a new job worth three times her old salary. Unfortunately, her new boss, Vivian Grant, is even worse than the industry gossip has led her to believe. From middle-of-the-night phone calls and impossible demands to ridiculous hours and over-the-top tantrums, Vivian piles on the work...and the abuse. Now, as Claire's new job demands more and more of her time and her soul, will Randall Cox remain her Prince Charming?
