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....

HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
It was o.k. My bar is set pretty high, I probably will not listen again.
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.
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.
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
Lover of all books, especially Romance!
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.
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.
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 was so annoying I wanted to quit listening. Thankfully I persevered. The story was quite good.
New to Audible, but already addicted.
Yes, I held my attention and had great detail.
The final connection they made.
Yes...very descriptive and steamy.
I would have to say no. I was frustrated with the story line.
Given some depth to the actually story.
She was ok, not the worst, not the best
One thing that I cannot stand is a weak female character and a dominate jerk male character. The other thing that I cannot stand is when the characters just LOVE each oh so desperately but just cannot talk to each other about the issues that are apparently keeping them apart. Their relationship was flat, boring and felt forced. I honestly thought I was getting a cute romance story but no…it was a contrived story about miscommunications and childish behaviors.
Say something about yourself!
If you are looking for a story that is easy going, not much drama or keep you on the edge of your seat biting your nails intensity, with some hot steamy sex then this book is for you.
Personally I like a bit of suspense and drama in my stories and everything seemed to come too easily in this book. I mean there was some turmoil, and potential for disaster, but disaster seemed easily averted and I missed that holding my breath intensity.
So, it was a nice book...just a bit too sweet for me.
