Summary
Bridget Steele's father taught her two things: how to build and how to fight. With those skills, she created her own company and began building for New York City's elite. Often the only woman in the room, she's faced sexism, corruption and harassment, but armed with her designer hard hat and steel-toed stilettos, she's up for any challenge. Bridget figured out quickly she had to be ten times better just to be considered equal. Even with a stellar reputation, this scrappy young woman from the Bronx can't seem to gain access to the old boys' club. She doesn't fit in with the powerful men in commercial real estate and construction. But this single mom has learned how to play the game, and she never gives up. With her quick wit and determination, she won't let anyone get in the way of her dream-- including the irresistible man who is also her biggest competitor. She's learned the hard way that if she wants the view from the top, she'll have to build it herself" --back cover
