Leena has been in love with her boss, Nick DeMarco, for almost eight years. But he's never given her any indication that she was special to him. Their relationship was close, but rarely outside of a business function. So when he invites her to be his fake girlfriend at his family's Christmas week she is thrilled and ready to show Nick just what he's missing out on, her only wish for the Christmas season.
Nick wouldn't admit it to anyone except his brother, but his assistant Leena is the only woman he's had feelings for in quite some time. He didn't want to seem like a powerful boss trying to seduce his employee so he had ignored his desire for her for the past five years. When the opportunity to take her to his family's chalets opens he takes it, intent on seducing her.
When things begin to heat up with Leena and Nick, both are pleasantly surprised. But a winter storm traps them in the chalet just as Nick's older brother Jake arrives. When he makes no attempt to hide his attraction to Leena the whole vacation becomes heated. What will happen when the storm lifts, will the assistant have gotten her Christmas wish?
Would you consider the audio edition of The Assistant's Christmas Wish to be better than the print version?
I have not read the print version.
Who was your favorite character and why?
That's a toughie. They all had different qualities to them. I could relate a bit to Leena. Nick was yummy. Jake... hmmm... I'm going to pick Jake. He's a honey with a lot of geeky cuteness to him. I can't say no to that.
Which scene was your favorite?
Hmmmm... Leena and Jake decorating the Christmas tree, the whole chapter.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I think I yelled out "Pick one!" a few times. I may have cooed once or twice too. And I know I blushed.

I'm not normally a romance book kinda person but this book was really good. The story line was not what I was expecting at all. It took me by surprise with some of the decisions the characters made. But in the end love wins. A very good read you go in expecting one thing, and it comes out a whole different way.

There was no suspense. The only question you had was how they told everything to everybody and it never got back to either of them. Very low class and tacky. Couldn't read or listen to entire story.

I had hoped this would be a sweet, Sunday afternoon read, unfortunately, it was actually grating and annoying. First, the narrator's voice is like nails on a chalkboard! Her inflections for the female lead's voice sounded like she was doing baby talk in a bad porn flick. Her interpretation of the male leads was non-existent. Usually, I can get passed a bad narration if the storyline and characters are good. Sadly, this book had no redeeming qualities to save it. The lack of development of characters and the vapid dialogue was only the beginning. The male leads are brothers, and they have no respect or loyalty to each other. They care only about wanting the heroine for themselves. The heroine is an idiot. She is incredibly shallow and sleeps with each brother within 48 hours of each other! She can't decide which one she wants, and has no idea how she feels or how to should choose. Supposedly she is a strong, smart woman, but from what I can tell she is a wishy-washy shallow moron with a serious lack of morals and loyalty. I don't usually rip a book like I have this one, but I felt I needed to warn prospective readers who are looking for a happy story with decent characters and a half way decent plot that this is not the book for them! It does have a HEA, but by the end of the book the only HEA I would have liked is if the heroine's plane had gone down on her way to France!

I wish I hadn't wasted my credit. I just did not like this book, particularly the main character. She maintained relations with two brothers, obviously uncertain of her own feelings about either of them. There was no love, only confusion and deceit. Absolutely NOT a good read.

What would have made The Assistant's Christmas Wish better?
What a whiney voice reading a story about a woman who couldn't choose but had sex with the wrong man in the same house she was staying with him and the right man.
What will your next listen be?
The great Christmas knit off
How could the performance have been better?
The voice was too whiney for my ears
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
