I'm not going to rate this because I only got 16% in, but it's driving me nuts. So far, the biggest conflict is the fact that the main character is working with a pretty boy, they're attracted to each other, and the boy's employer doesn't allow them to date because of their working relationship. Lots of admiring how cute he is, concern for whether she looks good enough, and talking (or trying to avoid mentioning) to other people about how cute he is.

I'm bored. I want something with more substance. I quit.

On a side note: The consistent misuse of participial phrases and occasional dangling modifiers were also driving me nuts. Sorry, that's just how I am.
