Allt eller inget

Allt eller inget All Or Nothing

Opposites Attract #1

Lexia Vikander is a copywriter at a small advertising agency in Stockholm. She loves her work, but can’t help but feel as if she doesn’t quite fit in. Whether it’s into the calorie-counting ideals her business promotes or the high-strung personality type it breeds. Also, things are messy at work. The agency has just been sold and a new owner has taken over. Rumor has it there’ll be cutdowns. And so Lexia finds herself in a bar, drowning her sorrows and job worries. Luckily, she’s found the perfect distraction: a good-looking man who gladly joins her in a bit of flirty conversation.

Adam Nylund is a man of integrity, and not about to let anyone in. He prefers to focus on work, but the woman on the bar stool next to his piques his interest. Until she has one too many to drinks, kisses him, and vomits all over his shoes.
Monday morning, they meet again: Lexia, and her new boss – Adam.
