The Professor

First days of classes for Harvard Law School was starting getting Olivia prepared. One more night before the class started and she would be working her second job until 2 am. She had a nine o'clock class, then another at noon, then at four, then off to her first job at the law firm, then finally her diner shift. It had been this way for four years for Olivia. Since she left high school four years ago, leaving in the middle of the night from Cyrus and James's house to pack her things and be gone. Olivia had never gone back since then. Cyrus and James would fly out to see her on the major holidays and she appreciated that. Her breakup with Fitz was one sided but mandatory for the situation. "You cannot be a mistress" Liv reminded herself every time she would think of him. Several times she wanted to go back and make everything right but it would never matter because he was happy with his wife and son and whatever other children they had.

Olivia hadn't dated anyone since him. She felt too heartbroken to get invested in anything like that again, though she would never admit it.

"Good afternoon, Henry, getting home early to Maria and the kids tonight?" she asked her boss. Henry was the biggest lawyer in most of Massachusetts and she managed to get the job as his head paralegal assistant, his right hand woman, the first month she moved to Cambridge.

"Hopefully, the new client interview is piling up and I have to go through all of them tonight and decide by tomorrow. So getting home to them won't happen for a while. Maybe, if I make it home before 8 though, she won't change the locks again. I had to wake Amy up by throwing rocks at her window the last time. Something a father should never do to his daughter," Henry explained.

"What if I go through them tonight?"

"Liv, you don't have to do that."

"You trust me right?" Henry nodded and smiled at her. "I'm read through them tonight and decide which ones we should take. You go home to your family and take the rest of the night off. I will handle everything."

"Are you sure you want to take this on? I can do it, Maria is always mad at me for something. I mean you don't know that much about the intakes."

"I always trust my gut. If I decide that we take someone and it doesn't work out, I'll let you fire me."

"You're really sure of yourself."

"That I am. Now go before I change my mind."

"Okay, I'm gone!"

Henry rushed out of his office heading home for the night. Olivia started to read the intake interviews as she sat in his chair. There had to be at least two hundred that she had to read front to back and then decide on. It wasn't a simple job but it was one she was going to take on.

When the clock turned to 7 pm, she went to her office and changed for her next job, leaving Henry the pile of clients she already decided yes on.

The diner was an easy shift for the night, mostly a few tourists. Usually, the place was jammed with Harvard students getting coffee and Wi-Fi. But since it was the last night before classes started they were all at the fraternity parties.

kwilliams: I am an avid reader, and I do mean AVID and few indie authors capture my attention the way you have. I absolutely fell in love with these characters and their story.

Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...
