Publisher's Summary

Claire Walters has worked for Jason Danvers as his assistant for three years, but he’s never appreciated her as a woman - until the day she jumps out of a cake at his friend’s bachelor party....

To support her ailing mother, Claire is forced to work a second job at a party-planning company. But when her handsome boss ends up with a front-row seat to the action, she’s mortified - and he’s intrigued.

With Danvers International in the middle of an important merger, Jason asks Claire to accompany him on weekend business trips - and suddenly all her fantasies are coming true. Her outspoken best friend thinks that getting a little "executive attention" will solve everything. But Claire sees more in Jason than just sex.

Jason is determined to know how the beautiful, sexy woman in the cake could also be his mousy assistant. The more time they spend together, the more he realizes how much fun it can be to mix business with pleasure. And how much he wants to offer her a happily ever after of her own....

    Story
    "My favorite, so far!"

    Sydney Landon is my favorite author. I've read all of her books in both the Danvers Series and Lucian and Lia Series, multiple times. I've recently rediscovered my love for audio books, while walking back and forth to work each day.

    First, Allyson Ryan is my new favorite narrator. Her voice is sexy and fluid. She grabs your attention from the first paragraph and keeps it until the final word. The voices of the characters that she quotes are done perfectly. She captures the spirit of the characters, including the men. By far, superior to other female narrators in the romance genre.

    Second, Weekends Required introduces us to Jason and Claire, the first of many captivating characters in the Danvers Series. Sydney Landon masterfully brings us characters we can relate to, lust after, and let into our literary families. This series is well written, with just the right amount of love to make it sexy. But, you'll love the characters as much out of bed as you do in. They're hard working, family loving, fun to be around and very sexy.

    You won't be disappointed!

    "Good..."

    What a cute book!!! This is one of those slow paced... sweet romance books... Nothing tragic happens....other than popping out of a birthday cake to stare into the eyes of your BOSS... while halfway naked!!! But other than that... Nope... simply sweet!!

    Narration was great...

    Good buy or sale... maybe save a credit for something a bit more raunchy...

    "It was ok"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    not really


    What didn’t you like about Allyson Ryan’s performance?

    I really wasn't too impressed


    Any additional comments?

    The Narrator drove me nuts, I think I have run across so many mediocre narrators lately that I am becoming immune. Listen to the sample before you purchase. The book isn’t bad, if you need a light fluffy read then get this one.

    "Enjoyably Light!"

    I will admit to liking more hard core but this story pulls the heart strings which adds to the listen. I liked the listen and those that like lighter sex/romance with more storyline will enjoy this book.

    "Good but not great"

    This book was completely predictable in the beginning, but not so much that I didn't keep listening. However, as it ambled along, the character of Jason got more and more irksome. Seriously, Sydney Landon? Men--heck, people!--don't actually act like that. And who would want them to? The dialogue was eh, as was the narration--supposedly both characters are native South Carolinians. Sure couldn't tell from the narrator's portrayals!

    All that said, I did listen to the whole thing, and it wasn't offensive (there are a few narrators on my "never again!" list), and it kept my interest. The story, the narration, the characters--all GOOD, but not GREAT.

    "Nice plot but..."

    It's a nice story but not well developed, I kept expecting things to happened relating you all the background story and hints. But it just ended abruptedly..

    "Narration is pretty bad -Story is pretty good"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Narration was so annoying I wanted to quit listening. Thankfully I persevered. The story was quite good.

    Story
    "Story Been There Done That-Good PartsCame Too Late"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was o.k. My bar is set pretty high, I probably will not listen again.


    Has Weekends Required turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, not at all....I love this genre, it just took too long for characters to act on their attraction. The 'rich boss-starving secretary' has been done many times-there was not anything that made this one unique or stand out.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I love narrators and many times they make a book in genres I'm not particularly interested in (Historical Romance example McCabe Highland Series) draw me in.This narrator was very limited in her execution...subtle differences made for similar voices for all characters.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Nope


    Any additional comments?

    Got this on a $4.95 sale...I'm interested enough to following the rest of the series but only if I can get them at the $4.95 or better price. NOT creditworthy in my opinion.

    NOTE: Adult themes-graphic romance scenes
