The Virgin Secretary's Impossible Boss (International Billionaires #8)

3.06  ·  Rating Details ·  176 Ratings  ·  11 Reviews
Linus Harrison's masculinity is a little too much for his sensible, bespectacled assistant, Andrea. He makes her heart beat like crazy! And the last thing Andi expects is to have to spend a weekend alone with her wild, irrepressible boss....

Billionaire Linus loves a challenge and relishes his chance to undo Miss Prim and Proper's buttoned-up exterior. It only takes one sno

Wow! This book was pretty bad! It had a lot of exclamation points! And a heroine who was a virgin but wanted the hero so bad that she had to be mean to him so she didn't feel the urge to beg him to ravish her!

Yeah, the writing was very bad and the story was dumb. Here is an example of the crappy writing:

"He wanted Andi. Now!
But they had too many clothes on still.
Both of them!"

Basically, don't waste your time. I am giving two stars because the characters she created were not bad but the writing a

This book suffered from a lack of good romantic tension. I just didn't feel much of a spark between Andi and Linus, which was disappointing, since there was good potential. I think this book is one of those identity crisis books where if it had been written twenty years earlier, I think Mortimer would have felt the levity to go there and make Linus the meaner, manipulative hero who propositioned the heroine and went through with it. It would have made for more intense drama. On the other hand, t ...more

Snowbound in Scotland!

★★☆☆☆ I should really start letting go of my “snowbound” fantasy. This was a good place to start.
His mouth tightened. “Do you want us to continue working together?”

She grimaced. “I don’t think what I want comes into it, do you?”

“Oh, I think that it does.” He nodded slowly, pale gaze unreadable.
This is the new millennium, isn’t it? Pretty bad when the guy is more aware of woman’s rights that she is.

The story begins just after the deaths of Andrea Buttonfield's fiancé and father in a car accident. Andrea is forced to sell her family home to Linus Harrison who offers to hire her as his personal assistant and allow her mother to live in a smaller house on the property. We then skip ahead a year, and Andi and Linus have become friends. We know this because he is now allowed to call her Andi (with an i - how can you tell when you are speaking?). He wants them to go on a business trip to his nat ...more

A book that should never be read. Agghhh...... God knows why I even picked up this book. What made me think that i will even appreciate this book. I have no f******** idea.
So what did i just read?????? A man who cant keep his hands of a woman and a woman who, as the title suggested, was a virgin. If anything could be more worse this is a story of a boss and employee.
They are stuck in an inn and have to share a bed and room with each other.
And just like in any stereotypical romance novel involv

Dear lord, this book has the most annoying female I've run across in a long while. I swear, I haven't found a single freaking thing to like about her at the halfway point. She's whiny, argumentative, and lashes out constantly at the hero (her boss). I just can't read any more. I don't even care. I like Linus, the hero, he was trying at least, but damn, I would have had to choke this chick.
"Don't be ridiculous" is what Andy says multiple times and it is more or less what I think of large part of this book. :)
But it is a nice sweet romance.
this was just ok for me. I felt the heroine to be flat sort of boring. Why did the hero take so long to notice her. and why was he creeping around her mom?
