Chick lit written from the guy's point of view. Alex has been Mr. Nice Guy for too long. Betrayed and angry, he becomes the striving, competitive, ambitious guy who has always passed him by & screwed him over in the past. A bit of selfishness and confidence is not such a bad thing professionally -- he is able do things he had never dared & only dreamed of professionally. But his personal & inner life suffer as he becomes the type of guy he has always hated.
