As his wife gives birth, Victor Exeter’s at the hospital doing business on his cell phone and flirting with nurses. CEO of a Manhattan financial firm, he has an ego that sees no problem with leaving his family for Liza, his secretary. Liza screws up little things for Victor and Ken, his protégé, but Victor can’t fire her – she’s too good in bed. But when he flies to Detroit for meetings, it turns out that Liza rented him a car in Houston. When she’s told to book first-class plane tickets, she sticks outraged CEOs in coach. When it’s time to re-new the firm’s license to sell insurance, she forgets.
The affair unravels and Gwen sues for sexual harassment. She discovers Victor can’t be crossed, so she uses the line of thinking he taught her to frame Ken, the only person who ever encouraged her. This compassionate guy worked hard to find his dream job, fiancee and co-op…it only takes one accusation to ruin his life.
Who's the main character?
Is it Gwen? I don't like her much and if she's the main character she can be vile as can be but there has to be something appealing about her. "Good in bed and stupid" don't work-they aren't things I find appealing.
Is it Ken? He sounds like a dolt.
Is it Victor? He can't be crossed cause he's with the Bloomingdale pack of the Poodle mafia?
You've got a story you want to tell but you'll need more nuance and tighter focus to hook my interest. A shotgun will help too of course.
