Fighting for Redemption (The Elite: Book Four) Excerpt © Nicole Flockton 2017


"You're kidding me aren't  you?" Cassandra Fielder looked at her boss, Frank, hoping he was pulling  one of his rare pranks.
  "No, I never joke when it comes  to a client."
  Well crap, he’s using is no-nonsense  tone which meant one thing; it was a no prank day.
  "Since when has Brett Hunter  been one of our clients? I thought Powerz had him in an airtight  contract."
  "As of yesterday he became one  of ours. He and Powerz had a mutual parting of ways."
  "Why doesn't that surprise  me," she muttered under her breath.
  "Now, now Cassandra,” Frank  tutted. “Given your experience with athletes, and given your ability to make an  Eskimo buy ice, you're the best person on staff to handle Brett. I’m sure  you’ll come up with some unique ideas to change the public's perception of his  image. His Agent, Dan, is a friend of mine. I assured him we'd do everything we  can to take Brett from being public enemy number one to hero of the hour."
  God, the task was almost impossible. For his  whole career Brett appeared to go from one scandal to another, culminating in a  poor performance at the recent Olympics—in the pool and more drama than you  could throw a stick at, out of it. The guy was a veritable marketers nightmare.  And, lucky her, he was her nightmare now.
  There was no point in arguing with  Frank Allen, managing director of Star Image Consultants, once he'd made up his  mind not even a jackhammer could prise the command loose. She supposed she  should be flattered he thought so highly of her, even though he had to throw  part of her past in her face. It was the very reason she didn't want to work  with Brett. Athletes weren't high on her list of favorite clients she wanted to  work with. Her only option was to suck it up and hope that she can do the  impossible and do it quickly.
  "Seeing as you have so much  faith in me, and it’s obvious I have no choice. I'll contact his agent and set  up an appointment time."
  "No you don’t and there’s no  need to contact Dan." Frank leaned forward and Cass knew she wasn't going  to like what was coming next. "He's already in the conference room waiting  to speak to you."
  Fan-friggin-tastic. No time to  prepare. No time to come up with any ideas to present to him. Hell, she needed time  to think, image improvements didn’t just rain down from the sky. It was clear  Frank was throwing her in the deep end and expecting her to swim to victory.  Well she was no Olympic swimmer and the one waiting for her was just going to  have to wait a little while longer.
  "Well I'm going to need a few  minutes to plan and look into things to see what I can come up with."
  "No. I need you to see Brett  now. Just meet him and then you can work out the best way to improve his image  after you’ve talked to him."
  God, how she wanted to stamp her feet  and cry why me, but a diva she wasn't. A consummate professional she  was.
  "Fine. But next time, a little  warning would be nice." She stood and headed toward the door.
  "Oh, Cass?" She stopped,  turned and faced Frank, lifting her eyebrow in query. "What fun would it  be if I'd given you ample warning?"
  This time Cass didn't hold back, she  rolled her eyes and chuckled. "You're lucky I love you, Frank."
  Still chuckling she walked out the  door and headed for her own office to gather the things she needed. If it took  her more than the five minutes it should, what did it matter? Brett Hunter  could stew a little longer.
  ***
  Not ready at all for this meeting,  but knowing she'd delayed long enough, Cass straightened her shoulders, opened  the door to the conference room, and found it—empty.
  Great.
  Fantastic.
  He couldn't even wait ten minutes.  Damn, why had she been so caught up trying to show Frank she couldn't be  manipulated. Trying to get the upper hand in a meeting she was going blind  into. She should've just grabbed a pen and notepad from someone else's desk,  marched straight into the conference room, and dealt with Brett. If she'd done  that she may have been back in her office, going over her notes.
  Now she had to walk around the office  to try and find her elusive new client. All the while making sure Frank didn’t  notice she’d misplaced their now star client. Hoping like hell he hadn’t already left the building and was well on  his way to getting into trouble. She had to find him fast.
  If I was a disgraced athlete where  would I go?
  To the nearest exit and the closest  bar?
  That could be her scenario if she  Brett didn’t turn up somewhere in the office.
  "Are you my new brand expert?"
  A deep voice sounded behind her.  Relief coursed through her knowing that she wouldn't have to walk into Frank's  office and tell him she'd lost his friend's client.
  She turned, faced her quarry, and  stuck out her hand. "Good morning Mr. Hunter, I'm Cassandra Fielder and  yes I will be working with you to tidy up your image."
  Her breath caught when Brett took  possession of her hand in his and gave it a firm shake. Liquid heat wound its  way through her bloodstream.
  What the hell?
