Breaking Up with Barrett is the first of six books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly handsome English brothers who are all on the lookout for love. (Except Alex. He´s a womanizing manwhore. And maybe Stratton because he´s wicked hot but super awkward around girls.) Barrett English, aka ´´the Shark´´, is the fair-haired firstborn of the English brothers and the CEO of the oldest, most prestigious investment banking firm in Philadelphia. He rules the boardroom with an iron fist, refusing to take no for an answer and always getting his way. Emily Edwards, a first-year doctoral student at the University of Pennsylvania, grew up in the gatehouse on the outskirts of Barrett´s childhood estate. The daughter of his family´s gardener and housekeeper, she was always looking through the window of privilege but forced to remember her place at the very periphery of the kingdom. When business partners suggest that a fiancée might soften Barrett´s image over business dinners, he approaches Emily for the job of fiancée. And while love isn´t necessarily on Barrett´s radar, he begins to realize that Emily always has been. But will his take-no-prisoners boardroom tactics work on the heart of the woman he loves? 1.
