Publisher's Summary

Plain Emma Stephenson might not look like a tycoon's glamorous assistant, but for Luca D'Amato - a playboy who likes to play - breaking through her no-nonsense attitude is his favourite new game. Sensible Emma thought all they'd be sharing was an office - not a bed! But she's learning fast what being Luca's personal assistant really means! Now he's standing there offering her a promotion - and she's trying to find the words to tell him she's pregnant!

A typical light, feel good romance

An enjoyable love story about a 'tormented' Italian stallion tycoon and his Secretary who tries to resist his charms but, as the title suggests, she fails miserably. Nice, building, blossoming then blooming romance with likeable characters. A typical harmless easygoing listen. Short but sweet. Great Narrator that does a sexy Italian accent.

Worth a credit? I would put it in your Wish List and wait to get it on sale but if you want a nice holiday listen and you can't wait, then yes.

Feel Good Read!

A happy ever after ending. English girl gets job, falls for boss. Birth control fails....Oops! Boss has made it clear wants no involvement, entanglements etc , with dignity she decides to raise child w/out his knowledge,......But somehow they come together at the end. Happily ever after.
Paid eight dollars for this one. Was worth it, but wait till 4.95 sale, don't waste credit on it.

Really????

I am really sick of weak heroines in these novellas. Too much to say not enough space. Get a grip ladies, what's with not making sure that you protect yourself from pregnancies too, why are all these "SMART" women just getting knocked up? Why do they surrender as soon as the heroes say "I love you"? Snap out of it, what does love have to do with the way he has treated you over the months or years? What if he reverts back to is ACTUAL self?

A book to fall asleep to

It was an okay story although unrealistic. It put me to sleep and that is what I bought it for.

Dreadful title for a good book

This story was much better than I expected from the unimaginative title, Emma was no push over and was emotionally stable, unlike some of the dramas you get from other books in this genre.

Romantic and Engaging

I adored this, it is well narrated with lovely Italian accents and British. The storyline is fantastic featuring two strong main characters facing their own demons that their families have bestowed on them, but together finding their way through the maze of maintaining a loving relationship and forgiving (or at least learning to not let the past affect them and their decisions). I loved this the character Emma with a strange combo of wise-naivety and Luca with his cold-love, what a fab combo of personalities these two have that will keep you hooked and unable to stop listening to until the very last word!!! Loved it and will defiantly be listening to it again in the future. DONT MISS IF YOU LOVE ROMANCE WITH ATTITUDE!
