Publisher's Summary

Starr Media Second-Assistant Survival Guide

1. Don't call your hot boss the Antichrist to his face.

2. Don't stare at hot boss', um, package or his full sleeve of tattoos. (No. Really. Stop!)

3. Don't get on the malicious first assistant's bad side.

4. Don't forget to memorize the 300-page employee manual.

5. If you value your cashmere, steer clear of boss' dog.

6. Boss' dimples are lust-inducing. Do. Not. Give. In.

7. "The elevator ate your clothes" is not a valid excuse for showing up to important meetings half dressed.

8. Don't break seven of the rules within the first week of employment if you, ya know, are in dire need of money to support your sick mom.

9. Whatever you do, don't fall for the boss. See rule eight about sick mom.

10. Never forget the rules.

Perfect Office Romance!

Loved it! It was so funny, swoony, and sexy. Characters were relatable and interesting. The story even had a couple twists I didn't see coming.

Great narration! I wish her character voice for Brogan was a little more gravelly instead of whispery.

Can't wait for Zoe's story!

I Couldn't Finish the Book

What disappointed you about The Rule Book?

This book read like a diary of a girl who hates dogs, was crushing on her boss, and worried about her mother who had cancer. It was boring, it took forever to get anywhere and when it did it was awkward and that was when I had to shut it off.

What could Jennifer Blackwood have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Create a more believable romance - why did these two get together? What was the point? I'm not sure if it was the performance that made it difficult to like the characters or the book. If there was a backstory that made the characters more likable, I didn't listen long enough to get to that part.

How could the performance have been better?

No clue.

What character would you cut from The Rule Book?

The dog. Listening to this woman rant on about her dislike of dogs made me wonder why there was a dog in the book in the first place.

Sweet story but no real sexy scene. More YA

This is a sweet story and well written. Definitely not a "sexy hot make you wet" romance but a cute sweet love story that you could give a older YA. It is still well worth the credit. Highly recommend

Really good read.

Not the typical trashy romance. a true love story with many obstacles to over come.

Narration ruined it for me

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I had loved the book when I read it- giving it 5 stars - so decided to listen to it instead of re-reading it. I had expecting to find it as entertaining as reading it had been- but I was so wrong. The narration was awful- half the time I couldn’t tell what she was saying.

Would you be willing to try another one of Alex McKenna’s performances?

Sorry but no

Could you see The Rule Book being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

Before listening to it I would have said yes- but now No

cute story

i really enjoyed this! very well performed and a beautiful quirky love story. there's enough drama to keep you intrigued but does not stray too far away from the love story

Really enjoyable!

I enjoyed the story a lot and the author's turn of phrase and humour I found very appealing. I had moments I actually laughed out aloud.
This was the first time I had heard Alex narrate and she did an excellent job. I will certainly look for her future book narrations.
This story made my road trip even more enjoyable!

Nice story

I was into this book at first then was just waiting what I thought was too long for the couple to get together. But then it happened and I enjoyed every bit of the story. I love romance novels and really liked this one because there wasn't the whole intimacy told in detail. The narrator I haven't listened to before but loved her husky voice I will look out for more that she's the narrator in
