This is the cutest book EVER! Even though it's on the longer side, I finished it in less than a day because I could not stop reading it. This is not my typical read: The language is pretty much PG(I only occurrence of the one F word off hand) and not only is there no sex, there is barely any kissing. Totally not like most of the books on my shelves... But I LOVED IT!!

In a nutshell, this is what it's about...

Trent Lancaster is a rich CEO who is out of touch with reality. He is constantly threaten

God, I loved this story! It was a dream...well more like a hilarious nightmare. The main characters have strong characteristics that the author sticks with consistently through the story. The secondary characters play over the top but in such a paradoxically realistic way you can't help but be drawn in.

The humor is everything from dry sarcasm to slapstick but there are laughs from every direction. I guarantee everyone could find something to laugh about. The hero/heroine chemistry is subtle but

OMG!!! This book had me crying I was laugh so much. I am not sure if it was suppose to be funny or not but it was!! I loved every minute of it.

This truly could be called the Worst Week Ever!!! If everything bad that could happen to anyone happen to Carrie and Trent, sometime twice a day lol. Carrie and Trent are total opposites of each other which makes them prefect together if they stop dancing around it. Trent is the boss from hell who thinks yelling is the way to get people to do things. Car

Another Excellent Read from Liza O'Connor!
Worst Week Ever is funny, romantic, and delightfully entertaining.
Become immersed in Carrie's worst week ever, and you will find
indepth characters and an entertaining plot. I loved this book
After reading Liza O'Connor's book, Saving Casey, I was very happy
to see another book from this author.
Excellent read!!

I'm going to admit I' really had no idea what to expect when I started this book. It certainly wasn't the laugh riot i got. I don't remember any book I have read in recent times that has made me laugh so hard.

Trent is your typical out of touch spoiled company boss who has no idea how the real world works. Carrie his long suffering assistant. The interactions between them are a joy to read though like Carrie i quite often wanted to slap Trent upside the head for being such a dick.

A very engaging read. I shifted between wanting Carrie to dump her rich love interest to understanding why she was persevering, when glimpses of his good nature shone through.
There are some very emotional moments as well as some frustrating moments. Just like in real life.
A fun story and I would recommend it highly.

I have read many books that were suspenseful, exciting, romantic, touching... place suitable adjective here. Most books do not make me laugh. I can count the ones that even make me chuckle on the fingers of one hand.

Liza O'Connor nails it. If you need a book to lift your spirits and put a well-needed smile on your face, this is it!

I spend 6 months as an EA at the end of last year and I was shocked how much I could relate to the antics of the boss in this book! Kept me up till 2am to finish and see how it ends. Thanks to CD Brennan as without her recommendation I would never have found this lovely author and great story!

"Worst Week Ever" has to be one of the best books I’ve read in 2014. I had no idea I’d love the novel so much. What I had thought might be a quick read with about a chapter per day of the week, something to laugh at and a bit of romance – turned out to be full of wit, an emotional rollercoaster ride and lessons for life.
I’m not going to try and summarize the plot because I’ll just get my synopses tied into unmanageable knots. Let me hop on to the characters. I think I have a love-hate relationsh

For all the pathos of Carrie and Trent’s problematic relationship, the humor carried this story. I’m not usually into romance, but I’ve been one of Ms O’Connor’s fans for a long time; the mixture of real life and humorous predictable events did not disappoint.
As it is the beginning of a series, not all threads are tied off and clipped short at the end. I dare say, none of them really are; Carrie and Trent make it to the end of the week, and we’re ready for the next story to start after breathing

Just how many things can go horribly, comically wrong in one short week? Plenty!
Trent is a horribly spoiled, overbearing and egotistical CEO. All of his employees hate him; that is, all except for his Executive Assistant.
Carrie is a bundle of happy, ‘get-it-done’ energy. She’s hard-working, competent and even gets along with her boss – most of the time.
Ms. O’Connor has created these and other characters who I’m certain will make you gasp with laughter just as hard as they did me. And her story

***** I was gifted a copy of this book for an honest review*****




This book was nothing like I expected. I laughed the whole way through this book. Liza O'Connor has written an amazing book with this one. This is not your typical rich boss falls in love with his employee. There is a little bit of everything in this book, but instead of the intense drama you get a muted version filled with humor. Once I started reading this book I could not put it down and I am sure everyone around me thought I was

Ha, this book actually tickled me. I really liked Carrie, but it was Trent who totally sold this whole story for me.

The man is so completely clueless it's incredible. I suppose clueless isn't quite the right word. Maybe, living in his own world is a better description. His thoughts and perception are extremely distorted, and he seems to see everyone as an enemy out to get him. Of course, he doesn't realize he's such a gruff ass to most of them. Carrie happened to see passed that and actually to

Humorous disaster romance that keeps you turning those pages.

Carrie is a cute-as-a-pie heroine with a ton of sassy dialogue. She might be tiny is size, but she can stand as tall as the rest of them. Trent is her uber-rich high-society boss, but theirs is not your normal employer/employee relationship. It's challenging, all-consuming, and completely off the charts. As they battle their worst week ever on the job, anything that can go wrong, does, and on a scale which draws the reader in. All the

Something has happened to Cassey's nice in control life. Everything is going wrong. First she gets arrested at the airport after along flight from Taiwan... and things go downhill from there.
'Worst Week Ever' is a fascinating look at the ups and sometimes hilarious downs on the road to love.

This book is whacky. And I mean that in a good way. Not sure Trent is worthy of Carrie’s love and devotion, but I do love the way his mind works (or doesn’t work, as the case may be). If you like crazy humor, you’ll like this book. And I’d read the next in the series, but that most likely won’t happen. I won this copy as a pdf (which did not exactly make for optimal--or fun--reading) and the series is only available for a Kindle. I own a Nook. If the series ever shows up on B&N (or print), I ...more

Overall the story was a good one and I would recommend it overall. The only reason I did not give this story a 5 star is that it seemed after awhile to be over the top. We all have those times when everything goes bad and even the weird is ordinary. I can understand most anything but some of this was just too much for me.

A wonderful cast of characters and a fabulous sense of humor kept me reading this romance late into the night. Loveable, lighthearted and well-written, I'll definitely be reading more of this author in the future. Well done, Ms. O'Connor.

Sweetest Story.

Rarely have I laughed so much. Our heroine and hero are two different types. She is stable, wise, caring and able to make you feel like you're the most important person. Our hero is rich, arrogant, self serving and incredibly out of touch with r regular people. The comedy of misunderstanding are hilarious. You will love this sweet story.

Not sure anyone could endure the week that just ended for them! Still a long road ahead, but new friends and old friends reassigned just might work. Worth a shot!

This is actually 3 books squished into one. I enjoyed parts of it but it dragged on so long I completely lost interest on several occasions. I finally finished it but I have no interest in reading more in this series.

This has to be one of the zaniest, most charmingly funny and entertaining romance novels I've read in a long time. I think we romance readers have come to take romance a little too seriously - the angsty plot, the broken characters, turmoil and raging hormones.

Worst Week Ever has none of that. Instead, it offers characters that are a bit over the top going through situations that are a bit unbelievable at times but never dull. This book goes from one bizarre moment to the next, carrying the read
