If you are looking for a short, entertaining, sexy but fun read "Deceiving Her Boss" is the book for you. Can you imagine a prominent, good looking, sexy businessman who is constantly having to fire his assistants because they are constantly trying to lure him down the aisle. Well, his name is Sean Greyson and he had decided that this time he wants a matronly assistant who can keep her eye on business only.

Allie Mitchell has always wanted to work for Mr. Greyson because he is intelligent, succes

I only made it a quarter of The way thru.. This is going in to my 'started but couldn't finish' pile. It is beyond cheesy.. It's not well written.. The characters have no depth.. I only gave it 2 stars because I thought the premise had potential to be an interesting story. Don't bother.
Spoils Alert!!

I really liked this book up until Sean coerced Allie into marrying him, telling her she owes him because she deceived him about her appearance. First off, he has no right to judge her based on how she dresses. If she wants to dress unattractively, that's her choice. Second, he has no right to threaten to fire her just because she has a sexy body. SO WHAT?!?! So she's attractive, and she hid it. That's her flippin business. The is no reason for him to be angry about it. I also hate

I loved the start of the book and most of the middle... But the ending was quite rubbish. It lacked depth. The scene where Allie caught Sean kissing another women could have been soo good if the author had elaborated on it more. There also would have been more drama if she had just left instead of saying the responsible thing to do would be to tell him that she was leaving.

I thought the whole marriage plot just came out of no where. The fact that Allie agreed to marriage was beyond me. I though

A good lighthearted romance story.

DNF 35% - tedious. This would have been better if Allie was a junior Analyst than an Assistant.
Not sure why the author hates women so much but it relies on clichés such as beautiful women not eating but "pushing food on a plate", or beautiful assistants' hoping to seduce the boss, or women not managing to make it far in the Corporate world as CEOs or even Executives. I thought that sort of sexist thing was all over.
Not all women who work in the Corporate world are assistants. Some of us do more

I quite impress in Allie,heroine of this book.
She have her own way of thinking and stick to it.

With Sean ,when He tells Allie that he has interest in her
even when Allie is in her not-quite-impressive look. But he never really show sign of it
until he sees her real self (beautiful , sexy and charm in everyway)
he left me with doubt that he really into her because ?

anyway , this book is quite enjoyable to read : )

The novel was cocky and sweet. It had this amazing blend of balance that walked a very thin line. I actually loved the heroines morals and values. She was a stand up character, right until the end. The hero ticked me off at times but he got it together.. well... eventually! It was a great read.
Jun 23, 2015 JK rated it did not like it  ·  review of another edition

I really liked the last 2 books by this author that I read. But this one's an old-fashioned patriarchal bodice ripper disguised as a contemporary romance. I like alpha male stories every once in awhile, but this was just offensive, particularly given the progress that women have made in the workplace over the past 50 years. And the "premise" of her deception? Since when is dressing in a less attractive manner at work in order to be taken more seriously an unethical "deception" ?!?! Patheti

Fast paced action-packed romance...

Finding love at work is unavoidable no matter how much you battle it. Allie and Sean made sense together. What was hard to swallow was Sean's avoidance of commitment, in that it was contradictory to his family history and what he experienced growing up. If that could have been fleshed out better, this would have made for a more solid book.

Fun and sweet

Liked the author's writing style. Story flowed nicely and the relationship developed naturally. Love scenes were written tastefully and without unnecessary explicit details. I enjoyed the book and would love to read more from this author.

Was a good book but the ending was just stopped like in a middle of a thought. It was like the author got a call and just hit send without finishing the book, other than that it was a book I enjoyed very much. But just can not get over that ending.

Cute story

I thought this was a cute story but just not for me. But if you like a light read with that HEA this is your book.

Sean goes through assistants like people change their underwear apparently until Allie. She deceives him by disguising her beauty by stage make-up and wearing hideous old lady clothes from second hand stores. This doesn't keep the wonder from her boss, Sean Grayson. Once he discovers she is friends with his competition this adds fuel to his ever increasing fire for Allie.

I am not going to say how they get together. The parts I did not like was when he met up at a bar with another female, how he

I was undecided whether to give this one 3 or 4 stars. While the plot was instantly grabbing at the start, there were several times throughout the book where it just became tedious. I had to argue myself into continuing it twice (I have a "meh" collection on my kindle reserved for books I never finish). It was, however, a very sweet story, and I'm glad I stuck it out to the end. I most likely won't ever revisit it for a second read-through though.

Sweet Story

Just the right amount of hot steamy scenes. Loved the characters, especially Sean and Allie was a person we could relate to.

The book was good but lacking. There was many misnomers throughout the book. The love was there even though at times it does not feel that way.

I was born in upstate New York, and I've been weaving stories since I was a little girl. But my family was full of mathematicians and scientists, so admitting to a love for writing fiction (or romance!) would have made for some serious teasing around the dinner table every night.
