Sample Chapter



Walking as fast as my four-inch Prada pumps will allow, juggling my hand bag, briefcase and Kaladi Brothers Hazelnut Breve. I can’t believe I’m late – well, I’m not really late -- I’m just going to have to trust that Brandon Meyer, the manager of the “C” Street Branch, has everything set up properly for the presentation we are giving this morning. This irks me. I did not become the youngest District Manager in the history of National Bank of Alaska by relying on other people. This morning I, along with Brandon and our Treasury Management and Commercial Banking Partners, are meeting with the Executive Board of Directors for General Communications, Inc., a major phone and cable company for Anchorage and surrounding areas. This is a huge opportunity for the bank and for Brandon’s branch as they will be opening and maintaining the accounts if this presentation goes well.

I glance down at my coffee and lift it for a sip -- just then I crash into a very hard body. The lid on my coffee pops part way off and some sloshes on the suit and tie currently covering the hard body.

“Oh my god, I am so sorry!” I sputter and look up into the most amazing blue eyes I’ve ever seen.

He grasps my shoulders to steady me. “Are you okay?” he asks.

“Yes,” I say, fishing in the side pocket of my hand bag. “I’m just so sorry about your suit!” I pull out a business card and hand it to him. “Here’s my card. Call me and I’ll pay for the dry cleaning.”

He reads my card and I see what -- surprise on his face?

“But --” he tries to say.

“Again I’m sorry,” I say effectively cutting him off. “I’m late right now. Call me, I’ll take care of it.”

Holy mother of God that man was gorgeous! I think as I start to walk again. He’s wearing a dark grey suit, Armani maybe, a blue tie that matches his eyes and makes them stand out. He has broad shoulders, a narrow waist and short dark blonde hair. Running into him was like hitting a human wall so he has to be built under that suit. Suddenly I’m hoping he really does call me about the dry cleaning.

When I get to the GCI Headquarters, I’m relieved to find that Brandon has set everything up perfectly. As I said, this acquisition is a huge opportunity for the bank and the "C" Street branch, and quite frankly, for me. Snagging a client like GCI is really good for the bottom line of my district.

“It looks great in here.” I tell Brandon with a smile. Speaking of hot guys, if I didn’t have a strict policy against dating co-workers, especially my direct reports, I would definitely be interested. He’s tall and lean with brown hair and chocolate eyes. Yeah, he’s yum-worthy.

“Hey, Madison,” he says. “I was starting to worry. You’re usually the first one to any meeting.”

I roll my eyes. “It’s been a morning.”

I say hi to the Diane, our Treasury Management partner, and Jeremy, our Commercial Banking partner. This is going to be a perfect presentation -- we are going to win this client and it will be another excellent milestone in my banking career. I smile at the Board Members starting to trickle in, then suck in a sharp breath as I’m met with the blue gaze of the human wall. He smiles at me with a knowing grin and glances at his tie -- it’s the same one coffee stain and all. Shit. This is a fucking disaster.

I collect my shattered nerves and when everyone is seated I step up to the conference table and wait for them to settle.

“Hello, and thank you all for your time today,” I start. “I am Madison Savidge, District Manager with National Bank of Alaska. With me today are Brandon Meyer, Manager of our "C" Street Branch, Diane King, our Treasury Management Partner, and Jeremy Williams, our Commercial Banking Partner. We are very grateful for the opportunity to show you how we can save you time and money on all your company’s banking services, from International Letters of Credit to Employee Direct Deposit. NBA has an excellent reputation for servicing businesses both large and small, and we look forward to being GCI’s main financial institution. I’ll turn it over to the rest of my team now and again -- thank you for your time.”

I sit and Brandon gets up to give his part of the presentation.

As I sit and listen, I notice that the human wall is actually Joshua Blake, Chief Financial Officer for GCI. Shit, I think to myself, he would have to be the CFO for christ's sake. I was right -- this is a disaster.

The presentation is outstanding, we showed the board how we would save them an average of ten percent across all their banking needs. It’s a huge undertaking for a company of this size to switch financial institutions so the savings have to be significant, and ten percent is significant.

We shake hands with the board members, thanking them once again for seeing us today. Joshua shakes my hand and holds it just a little longer than necessary. His touch sends heat coursing through me and I know I’m blushing. Grinning down at me he tells me they will be in touch soon. God, he is freaking hot. He could have held my hand grinning at me with that sexy mouth for another hour and I would have been okay with it.

After the presentation, Brandon, Diane and Jeremy want to have a celebratory lunch. I agree to go but decide not to tell them that I spilled coffee on the very man that will probably be making the final decision about this switch.
