So why, when she requested a leav

OMG, this book was perfect (yes, this too. It's surprising how many 5 star reads I've been reading lately. THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. I'M ON A ROLL, BABY. (I just hope I don't jinx the roll now that I'm talking about it))

The heroine was super awesome, she was sensible, hard working, and totally in love with the hero - which, imo, is the best part of a book. As y'all know, I love books where the h falls in love first/h has been in love with the H for aaages.

The H was a bit dense, but total

Recommended to Emona by: Aayesha Khatri

Firstly, all thanks to the one who reccomended it, because I would have really missed out on something like this!
I usually don't care much for a Vintage Cherish but this one's a real sweet read!

Rachel always loved her boss, Brad, since the first time she laid eyes on him; but supressed her feelings, not wanting to destroy their friendship.
But then, one day, she gets lewd letters from some "secret admirer', and decides that she could do with some time off from her work!

Brad, on the other hand, kn

Quick, enjoyable read. Well told. I hope to read more by this author.

When his fledgling construction company gets to the point that Brad Phillips needs someone to help in the office, he hires recent college graduate Rachel Woods to be his Jill-of-all-trades for his soon-to-be finished office space. He tells her she can take a look at his books and figure out what she should be paid based on what he has left at the end of the month.

Eight years later the business and the office has grown and while

This is a typical Mills and Boon romance. It does what it says on the tin but don't expect anything special. I'm happy to say that at least the main characters in this book were likeable.
