Olivia Monroe sat down at the hotel bar and grinned at the bartender, who
grinned back. Thank God for a friendly face after such a long day.
She’d almost gone straight to her room to put on one of those cozy hotel
robes and order room service to eat on her bed, but what she wanted more
than anything tonight was a huge pile of french fries and an ice-cold martini,
and she knew from experience that room service was the least optimal way to
get both of those things. Fries always arrived soggy and martinis never
arrived chilled enough. Better to get the best version of both and a
conversation with Krystal the bartender that had nothing to do with
intellectual property or law.
“Hendrick’s martini, two olives?” Krystal asked her, already filling the
cocktail shaker with ice. Olivia had been staying in this hotel for a week now,
ever since she’d packed all of her worldly belongings and flown out to L.A.
to start this new chapter in her life.
“Yes please.” Olivia slipped off her blazer. “And a Caesar salad and a
large order of fries.”
“You got it. How was work today? You look like you’ve earned this
Olivia laughed and twisted her mass of dark curly hair up into a knot on
top of her head.
“Well, I left the hotel at eight this morning, and I’m just getting back now
at …” She checked her watch. “Nine at night, so yes, I’ve earned that martini.
But I’ve had worse twelve-hour days.”
Much worse, actually. After years of considering it, she’d moved from
New York to L.A., and she and her friend Ellie had formed their own law
firm: Monroe & Spencer. Olivia had spent the last month anxious she’d made
the wrong decision, about both the move and starting a new firm. She was
still terrified about that—so much so that she’d woken up at four a.m. the
night before and worried for an hour. But, God, she’d loved every minute of
her workday today. She’d been on an adrenaline high from the moment she
walked into the office that morning—hell, from the moment her plane had
landed last week. She was thrilled to be back in California, it was great to
have Ellie as her partner, and it felt incredible to be her own boss, finally,
after all these years.
When her martini arrived, she raised it to Krystal in thanks, and silently
toasted herself. She took a sip and smiled. Perfect.
She inhaled her salad and half of her fries as soon as they arrived, and
realized she couldn’t remember the last time she’d eaten. Oh right, Ellie had
handed her some sort of green smoothie at eleven a.m. when they left for a
meeting together, and Olivia had laughed at her. Ellie had been in L.A. ever
since law school graduation, so she did things like drink green smoothies and
go to seven a.m. yoga classes before she got into the office. The smoothie
was terrible; no wonder Olivia had eaten those fries so fast. As it was, the gin
