The Dirty Truth by Winter Renshaw

The old Elle hated West, but maybe the new Elle can tame him.

From Wall Street Journal and #1 Amazon bestselling author Winter Renshaw comes an enemies-to-lovers romance about the journey of self-discovery that follows a life-changing event.

After a brush with death, I realize it’s time to make changes in my life. Big changes.

First, my job. I love being a journalist, but I hate my megawatt magnate boss, West Maxwell. When he demands I rewrite an article on short notice, I turn the tables on him with a scathing new column and quit in a blaze of glory.

But West isn’t about to let me go that easily, the jerk. He offers me an unexpected new position: mentor to his rebellious teenage niece. For some reason, I agree—I like helping people, but I’m also admittedly curious to glimpse the man behind the mogul.

However, I soon discover that my new assignment isn’t what I expected. As I learn about the private side of my enigmatic boss, I start to see the heart he hides behind his icy facade. The old Elle hated West… but maybe—just maybe—the new Elle can tame him.

Elle is a journalist working for a mega-magazine but after a near-death experience, she decides it is time to move on. Besides, she is tired of her boss but not the job.

The ex-boss, West Maxwell, has other plans for Elle. He wants her to mentor his 14-year-old niece. He can't do anything with her, so maybe Elle can. As Elle and Scarlett get closer, so do Elle and West. Elle learns more about West and she sees that he is not at all what she thought.

This is a really good enemies-to-lovers story that will have you wondering who will survive, Elle or West? The spark is there between them, it just takes a little fuel to set it ablaze. This was a first for me from this author and I look forward to reading more.

Elle is a journalist who has a column everyone relates to. She knows that she could write more powerful pieces, but she also knows that she's good at what she does. When her boss berates her in a meeting and wants a new article in a crazy time frame, Elle reevaluates her life choices.

Elle is also recovering from a few traumatic events – (1) finding out her boyfriend isn't who she thought, and (2) a brain aneurysm. With these new events swimming around and then her boss' crazy behavior, Elle realizes that she wants something different – something more.

West is struggling with being a guardian of a moody 14-year-old girl. He's used to people doing what he asks, when he asks, and not asking questions. When he realizes that Elle was a good writer, person, and that he kind of screwed the pooch by being a jerk, West has to find a way to have Elle help both him and his niece.

These two find themselves on completely different paths than what they thought. As they wind their way through the angst of a 14-year-old girl and reevaluating the preconceived notions both had of each other, West and Elle will either find themselves walking the same path or diverging forever.

You'll laugh at the antics of a 14-year-old girl, swoon and simultaneously curse West, and cheer Elle on.

Elle is confused, trying to navigate a world which is both familiar and strange to her. After having an aneurysm that almost resulted in death, she's trying, one step at a time, to find her footing. Not only is she becoming obsessed with her near-death experiences and what others may have seen on the other side, her new boss is on her last nerve.

As a journalist, she knows you have to roll with the punches, but clearly Max hasn't gotten the message that Elle is just back from sick leave and columns don't write themselves, especially overnight. Taking a giant leap of faith, Elle quits, determined to live her life on her own terms.

Max can't let her go. Seems like Elle struck up a conversation with his niece one afternoon and now all Scarlett can talk about is Elle. Hiring Elle to keep up with Scarlett solves to problems he has: (1) Scarlett has a friend and someone to look out for her, and (2) he can get to know Elle better.

Elle doesn't mind playing nanny/mentor to Scarlett, but Max is a different story. She's not sure if he's what she needs, yet Max thinks he’s the man for the job.

I enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more from this author.
