The Intern, Volume 1 (The Intern #1) (Megan’s Review)






She’s sexy, fierce, and a loud-mouthed know-it-all…and she’s completely off limits.

Cecilia isn’t your typical college student. Hell, she isn’t a college student at all, but that doesn’t stop her from applying for one of the biggest and prestigious enterprises in the Midwest.

She wants it. She takes it.
She doesn’t let anything get in her way when it comes to finding out the truth.

When Bentley Leighton, soon-to-be CEO of Leighton Enterprises, meets “Ceci,” he’s instantly impressed. He doesn’t have time to train a new intern. However, when he sees her that first day, his intentions begin to change.

He’s the boss. She’s the intern.
Nothing can happen. It’s against the company rules.

Then again, rules were made to be broken.

What starts as innocent flirting becomes raveled up into so much more—secrets, lies, deceit.

*The Intern is a three-part romantic suspense serial.*
Not suitable for readers under 18.


Vol. 2 to be released June 18, 2014






Megan's review

4 stars



And the crumbs start dropping…
The Intern is the first in a three part series from Brooke. She’s done a fabulous job of hooking us with the first installment of the Intern series.

Cecilia, an eighteen year old who you already know is hiding behind some serious grief and she is determine to figure it all out.  Having witness a horrific unsolved crime when she was younger she’s never forgot a detail of it.  Now obsessed with ever cop show around she uses her devious ways to try and make head way in her own investigation- Leighton Industries.

Bently Leighton is going to one of those guys we will love.  He’s young hot and made to be a part of his family business and his nasty attitude is not keeping that a secret from anything.  He meets Cecilia when she interviews for an internship at his (not yet but soon to be) company.  As she talks of her wants they share a few similarities. Along with each thinking the other is smokin’ hot. Bently doesn’t want anything to do with the interns or the company but he has to.  So as he decides to give Cecilia a try…
“If I have to deal with an intern every Saturday for four month, she should at least be hot – give me something to look at.”
The quirky little banter they have, all innocent but enough to make me smile. Cecilia sort of can’t help herself which makes it all the more entertaining to a reader-ME!!  I even find Bently’s inner thoughts amusing. He doesn’t exactly deny his want for Cecilia but as he tries to rein it in she just can’t help herself. His professionalism, although a struggle to keep it on check, it is lost and the full flirty Bently begins!


“Well…what can you do, Miss West? What do you want to learn?”

“What can you teach me?”


“Are you ok?”

   “For someone so well-educated, you’re sure a curious thing,”

“Sorry, sir. It’s just… you look very uncomfortable. Like you’re trying to scratch your skin off or something.”

“Excuse me?

“Oh, shit. I’m sorry. That was really inappropriate.”

In a second everything this book was about changed. It went from innocent flirty read to full on this is really happening scorcher. Lines have been crossed, the boundaries bent and the war has begin and he has no clue what truth will be drop.


“I just want you to know, in case your mind is racing a thousand miles per hour like mine is, that I don’t do this. I don’t go around groping my interns or people I work with.”
“Oh, so I get to be your first.”


The ground work for an excellent, suspenseful, exciting, boiling hot series has been laid. I can only hope the next installment is soon to be released because I AM REALLY NEEDING MORE!
