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....

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
Claire was working two jobs to support herself and her ailing mother. When her boss asks her to work a couple of weekends with him it throws a monkey wrench in her second job. You see Claire works for a pleasure party company, meaning she jumps out of cakes at bachelor parties, in a skimpy outfit.
Jason, whom Claire has worked for, for several years, is suddenly aware of her as a woman, and begins to manage her life the way he thinks it should be, and this causes a lot of fireworks.
This is a cute, mushy, a lil over the top romance book. Simply put a happily ever after book.
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.
For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
yes but maybe not back to back like I would normally do.
Now the narrartor while she has a sweet soothing calming voice which is great but not great for a book of this nature. Maybe a zin/self help book? And lord this woman talks so freakin slow. What's up with that? I had to speed her up and you can really tell how slow she talks when you speed her all the way up and she finally sounds like she is talking at a regular speed.
She woman, he man, she in trouble, he wants to rescue her from all her problems. ( hence the title for my review) This is almost a sickly sweet mush romance book. I found myself saying really?! No man talks like this.....
The story started off strong but once the h&h got together it became that sickly sweet mushy lovey dovey * rolls my eyes*
Loved Claires best friend, she made me laugh threw out the book and I will be getting the next one in the series just to see if she holds her fire in her own book that she had in this one. Over all it was a good book, I assume this is a new arthor ( at least for me it was) she has alot of promise in her cant wait to see what she writes in the future.
when she pop out of the cake
wow her voice was great on expressing the feelings
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
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.
Stay at home mother of three teenagers. Love to listen while exercising or doing housework. Give me a good book and I'll make excuses to iron!
I was looking for a light and fluffy romance complete with unrealistic story to make me smile and this book fit the bill perfectly. It is a sweet story of a young woman working hard to handle everything life throws at her. The context could have been dark, but the author did an excellent job of keeping it light. Mixed with the perfect amount of comedy and the best friend. This is complete with everyone living perfectly happily every after. Excellent!!! Downloading book two now. Need Fun for a rainy day? This is the one! Great break from the heavier stuff.
I'll never again listen to a book narrated by Allyson Ryan.
The story was *just* okay. I might feel differently about it if someone else narrated. It was hard to separate.
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
The narrator sounded extremely young and made it sound as if I was listening to a Nancy Drew or Babysitter's Club book.
Would not buy again.
I really enjoyed this audiobook, the story is warm and anyone in my age group could probably relate to issues in Claire and her Mother’s life living with a verbally abusive husband and the death of a sibling. I like these feel good stories and how strong the women are and that love is never where you think it is, had me in tears at times, Jason is just so cool. The ending was predictable no angst just love. The narration was good.
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.
