ARC Review : Entry-Level Mistress By Sabrina Darby

Summary :

Daniel Hartmann and Emily Anderson have every reason to hate each other. Her father destroyed the lives of his parents and he in turn sent her father to jail. Now Daniel’s a successful billionaire and artsy Emily is his newest employee. Both of them intend to make the other pay for the sins of the past, but revenge has never been so sweet.


**ARC received through NetGalley **

Entry-Level Mistress is the story about revenge. Its the story about how love surpasses everything. Its the story of Emily & Daniel. Emily is planning revenge on Daniel for bringing down her fathers business and resulting in him being jailed for five years. She's reviled him ever since, hating what happened to her family as a result. Then she sees an ad for his company, applies and gets taken on. 
She wonders if he knows who she is, and quickly finds out he does.
They than start having an affair with a rule of not talking about the past. But is she still planning revenge? Is he planning to dupe her in the same way? And what really is the truth, is it what she's always believed, or is there more to it? Daniel doesn't seem like the heartless, dangerous, vindictive person she's always pictured, but is he just playing a role in order to use her for revenge? 
It was much harder to get a read on Daniel, given the book was first-person POV with Emily. So much of the book was just … meh. Daniel, other than being quite bossy and arrogant about her coming when called/texted (and she did), wasn't a alpha male, which was nice to read for a change. But I never really got a feeling for him as a person. I couldn't feel much depth to either of the characters.
So, overall, the book was okay, but not spectacular for me. I wish there’d been more drama and actual revenge-getting moments than what we got.
