Book 1: The Boss

From best-selling author Lexy Timms comes a billionaire romance that'll make you swoon and fall in love all over again.

Jamie Connors has given up on finding a man. Despite being smart, pretty, and just slightly overweight, she's a magnet for the kind of guys that don't stay around.

Her sister's wedding is at the foreground of the family's attention. Jamie would be fine with it if her sister wasn't pressuring her to lose weight so she'll fit in the maid of honor dress, her mother would get off her case, and her ex-boyfriend wasn't about to become her brother-in-law.

Determined to step out on her own, she accepts a PA position from billionaire Alex Reid. The job includes an apartment on his property and gets her out of living in her parents' basement.

Jamie has to balance her life and somehow figure out how to manage her billionaire boss - without falling in love with him.

Book 2: The Boss Too

Jamie Connors has decided a job is more important than a boyfriend. She's landed an awesome position working as billionaire Alex Reid's personal PA. It is not meant to be a job with benefits, and yet she finds herself in Alex's bed. Despite being smart, pretty, and only slightly overweight, she doesn't believe she's attractive enough for a man like Alex.

Trying to manage work and put as much time into her sister's wedding, Jamie finds herself trying to please everyone. Her sister's wedding is at the foreground of the family's attention. Jamie would be fine if her sister wasn't so bossy, if her mother would stop nagging, and her awful ex-boyfriend wasn't about to become her brother-in-law.

Jamie has to learn to love herself again, speak up for herself, and have the confidence to go after what she wants. She also needs to prove to Alex that she's perfect for her job and for his bed.

Book 3: Who's the Boss Now

How close can you get to the fire and not get burned?

Landing the dream job, working and dating her incredibly hot boss, and at the same time gaining the confidence she's never had, Jamie doesn't think life could get any better.

She's helping to manage a multibillion-dollar company. Her family issues seem to be resolved, and even though she and Alex have to figure out the wrinkles, it looks like they'll be able to be professional at work and romantic after.

Except perfect isn't quite exactly how Jamie imagined it would be.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jaime.. she was sort of a pushover and took alot from her mother and sister, but I loved when she started sticking up for herself and what she did she did herself only not to please anyone..

Not impressed

I love the books and the story line, but the narrator was horrible! A whiney mostly monotonous woman I spent the entire time trying to figure out who was speaking or if they were thinking.

Not Worth the listen

I'll be honest, I'm writing this review without having finished the book. The reason I'm doing so is that, it's so bad, I might not be able to finish. This book sounds like a brand new author wrote it and self published after being rejected numerous times. I downloaded this because I was hoping for a good, or semi decent, BBW novel. Yeah..... no. The character starts off at a size 12 and spends, from what I've listened to, the first part of the book successfully losing weight. Not a BBW romance, Audible. The narrator, while not great, I could have listened to without too much irritation but the book was so bad, it made the narration seem that much worse. Honestly, this time, it's not just the narrator's fault. The book is just that bad. Jamie's family is horrid and she lacks a backbone to stand up to them. She's planning her heinous sister's wedding to her ex boyfriend and her mom and sister actually demand, DEMAND, she quit her job. Oh, and Jamie is the maid of honor but she won't be if she can't slim down to a size six to fit the dress already ordered for her. OH HELL NO! Does Jamie get furious at this treatment? Nope. She just shrugs it off like "That's family. What can you do." Grrr!!!! Does the bad stop there? HA! You wish! The fact that her main male character, Alex, made it to "billionaire" status without ever having a personal assistant is far fetched to say the least. Added to that, at one point the guy just takes off after something upsets him, has zero contact, and leaves his personal assistant to run a client meeting that could mean millions of dollars lost if it's blown?! I mean, WTF?! It's like no attempt at making this book even slightly realistic was made. My advice to the author, stick with what you know. If you don't know or understand the corporate world, leave it out of your writing because the lack of understanding shines through. I just....I can't. Future readers, save yourself the pain and find another BBW novel cuz this is awful.

What was that?!

I must say I had high hopes for this book, but that old saying, You can't judge a book by its cover is true. The only thing good about these books is the cover. The heroine was a doormat to the 'nth degree. The ex boyfriend was a major jerk, the sister and mother were too horrible b"s and the father was just a weakling. I don't know what was worse, the story itself or the narrator. She had no changes in her voice at all. It was all one tone, she read as if she wasn't interested at all. Sorry. The whole thing was BAD just BAD!!

An ok listen

This was an ok listen. I neither hated nor loved the narrator. She did an ok job with the narration. What I didn’t like was the tinny echo that I could hear in the background.
The storyline was eh. Read it before. The drama was flat and, again, something I’ve seen before. The ending was a let down.
Overall I would give this 2.5 stars.

A story with all the twists and turns you'll love

I loved all the twists and turns in the story . It made me laugh out loud and cry completely heart broken. Watching Alex try and deny the love between him and Jamie . She's a beautiful sexy woman who has real curves bit her Mom and sister try and make her feel ashamed of herself. Alex meets her when her ex tells him she's the perfect Personal Assistant because she's not distracting. She's in the ladies room and hears the complete conversation. The ex is now engaged to Jamie's sister the size 2 complete opposite of Jamie. Alex even from the beginning knows Jamie is more then her size but convincing her will be hard to do especially with his hot and cold attitude. Even with all the twists and turns you cheer for Jamie to find her HEA . Sometimes I was so mad at Alex I wish I could reach into the story and smack him . You'll have to read this book it's so worth it ! I'll not write a spoiler but if you pass up this book you're sure to regret it !

Just Fabulous

Reading this box set was great but listening to it made it rise to another level. I'm very grateful that Lexy let me listen to this box set. Hannah Pralle was just great at reading this series I hope she narrates all the others in it. It needs more than 5 * can't wait to hear the others.

Enjoyable with some reservations

it was enjoyable, but some reservations. I struggled to identify with the main heroine's plight of being shamed for being overweight at a size 10 as well as being so indecisive. I loved the makeup and make out sessions but the storyline was lacking depth in spots.
I alternated between reading and listening, and the narrator was a bit bland and robotic. While rhe voice was pleasant, breaks in sentences and ill-timed voice inflections were distracting.

Great Box Set

I'm glad this book came in a box of 3. The story didn't end in the first book and not really in the second book. Kind of in the third book. Great story of insecurities (on both sides), family conflicts, and romance. Gonna have to get the rest of the series. The narrator did a great job with the characters. The author wrote a story that was hard to put down. However, there were a lot of redundancies that made for some boring sections. Still, overall, I liked the books.

Managing The Bore!

I've read a fair few of these billionaire romances, the plots are simple, and generally I find them to be a comforting read. The problem with this trilogy is I found both characters unlikeable. There's talk of the boss being dominant, a real strong character, that wasn't how he translated to me. I didn't find him attractive, hence the entire plot was lost on me. The female protagonist was also rather irritating, I was bored by the weight references, Lose weight, whatever, it just felt like she never really had a huge weight problem and lost a few pounds. Weight is something women can preoccupy themselves with, I get that, but I think the subject could have been handled better. All in all I found the characters shallow. I fell asleep twenty minutes before the end and don't have the inclination to go back to see how it ended.

Good story, bad narration

The story was great but the narration was bad. It needed 2 narrators for Jamie and Alex. We didn't to see Alex's perspective. The narrotor could not express the character's emotions. If the audio were to be redone, this book would be amazing.

FIRST BOOK

Would you listen to Managing the Bosses Box Set #1-3: Billionaire Romance again? Why?

I would if I were real bored. I love romance novels but I felt that the person reading out the story sounded bland and lacked real emotion

What was one of the most memorable moments of Managing the Bosses Box Set #1-3: Billionaire Romance?

There were some funny parts

What three words best describe Hannah Pralle’s voice?

Clear, but a bit bland

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No otherwise id be here a long time lol

Any additional comments?

Overall a very thought out and enjoyable book

i don't mind reading books that are a little raunchy but found that it was a different matter when it was Audible could be a bit embarrassing if you were interrupted
