Rule #1: All important men have assistants. Rule #2: Men rule the world. Still. Rule #3: There is enough money. There is so much money.
Fontana is a thirty-year-old executive assistant to Robert Barlow, the
CEO of Titan Corp., a multinational media conglomerate. She’s excellent
at her job and beloved by her famous boss—but after six years of making
reservations and pouring drinks from bottles that cost more than her
rent, the glamour of working for a media company in New York has
completely faded, but her student loan debt has not.
technical error with Robert’s expense report presents Tina with the
opportunity to pay off the entire balance of her loans with what would
essentially be pocket change for her boss, she hesitates. She’s always
played by the rules, but this would be a life-changer. As Tina begins to
fall down the rabbit hole of her morally questionable plan, other
assistants with crushing debt and fewer scruples approach her to say
that they want in. Before she knows it, she’s at the forefront of a
movement that has implications far beyond what anyone anticipated.
an eclectic clan of coconspirators, a love interest far too handsome to
be trusted, and a razor-sharp voice full of wry humor, The Assistants is a rallying cry for the leagues of overeducated and underpaid women who are asking themselves, How is it that after all these years, we are still assistants?
