Miranda Austin's personal assistant, Patrick Dove, knows just how to please her--professionally and personally.

2.5 stars!
It was good. Maybe too short to feel something for the characters.
The great thing about the Spice Briefs, they are such naughty reads with just enough story to make them enjoyable. I love these hawt yummy quickies. They are all about stripping the story down to the bare minimum and amping up the smexy scenes.

This is a yummy read where the personal assistant takes over outside of the office. Let me tell you the build to the sexing is enough to make you lose your panties!! This man really knows how to get a girl's engine revved!

This is all from Miranda's POV, y

I don't know if it's the narrator,but Priscilla Carson left me feeling empty. And the story... stupid. It was pretty awful. I don't typically HATE books, but this one just did nothing for me. I started this story with an open mind, but nothing helped. I normally LOVE British accents, but this one was just... painful. She sounded drunk. It was just so... not good. I couldn't even feel the "LOVE" that these two characters supposedly developed. It seemed so forced. The writer kept going on and on a ...more

e hanno avuto il coraggio di pubblicarlo?
Lei il capo. Lui l'assistente dominante e depravato. Scena di sesso. Scena di sesso. Lui chiede le dimissioni. Scena di sesso. Proposte per la luna di miele.
Questo è ciò che avviene in queste poche pagine... Ovvero una minchia. Sembra quasi di leggere la fanfiction di qualche ormonata repressa minorenne, senza contare che i due personaggi hanno la personalità della cartavelina. Ovviamente le parti principali sono centrate sul sesso "oh, facciamo come in 5

Un assistente personale di Portia Da Costa è un racconto intrigante e romantico di sole 34 pagine che arrivano al cuore, oltre che ai sensi. L’amore deve assolutamente sbocciare fra i due protagonisti Miranda Austin e il suo assistente personale Patrick Dove. L’amore che nasce sul posto di lavoro ha meccanismi sempre intriganti che appassionano e fanno immedesimare le lettrici e su questo punto non ci sono dubbi. Tutte sogniamo di essere il capo e di avere un attraente assistente personale che c ...more

Finalmente un racconto bello! Sono rimasta folgorata da Patrick, bello da morire, maledizione, e dallo stile di questa autrice, di cui avevo adocchiato il nome sulla cover di un romanzo della Harleiquin :) Fin da subito sapevo che avrei dato cinque stelline, poi... sono arrivate le sculacciate. Dio, è una cosa che non sopporto! Ma siccome sono buona, ho deciso di chiudere un occhio: non era giusto penalizzare una bella storia solo per il mio gusto personale ;)

This is a Harlequin Spice Brief, ebook. (It is strange that Goodreads has almost no information about this book.) I bought the ebook from eHarlequin.

I bought this because the plot appealed - female boss, male assistant, he is dom outside of work. Short, pretty hot. ok.
