Gave this a second chance but yet again I stopped reading three quarters of the way in due to the author's racist and insulting descriptions of the Arab culture. I've traveled extensively and have lived and worked in a few different places throughout the Middle East. Her descriptions reek of arrogance and a complete lack of real understand ...more
I can't recommend this book.
But Emily's life is quickly turned upside down when Kadir makes the request of a life time by suggesting she marries him in order to help him get rid o ...more
I so love pretending books. Any time you can get two people who are attracted to each other to pretend they are together in front of others, it always ends up as sexy fun. This one did an awesome job of that.

I suggest not reading this right before bed.
The 2 main characters are actually quite wonderful (first time I haven’t had anything bad to say about a male lead), but Emily, omg she has a bit of sass and a temper to match! And oh boy does she let er—Sheikh Kadir have it! After 4 yrs. of not being able to speak her mind, she let’s h ...more
As I started to read Kadir's story, I stopped because I was impressed with Lynn's concept. It's a good concept! Marry someon ...more
Kadir is a playboy sheik, who is used to getting what he wants, but I like that he stands up for Emily in the start of the novel. I also like that he’s smart enough not to be fooled by his ex for long. However, I wanted Kadir to me more alpha – yes, I’m spoiled – bu ...more
I’m not gonna lie, I am having a bit of a hard time trying to think of what to say about this book. It has the qualities I want in a book. Such as a rich, alpha boss and personal assistant relationship. I have a weakness for that kinda read. It is your typical Harlequin read. I do love my Harlequins. It even had me getting a cheesy smile on certain parts. So I am trying to figure out why it didn't leave me in WOW status.

Working for the prince of Kyr had its ups and downs. As his personal assistant Emily saw him through all kinds of things and through all kinds of women. Like a normal woman she noticed he was attractive but she kept that out of her mind because he was her boss. When Kadir receives a phone call from his father, something changed. Suddenly he was asking her to go home with him. Not as his assistant but as his wife.
Kadir was content ...more
Love this story. Both had uneasy upbringings and guarded their hearts in different ways.
This is book one of a two book series ...more
A few things that detracted from the story:
-Too much focus spent in Emily's thoughts - a lot of emphasis on her no I shouldn't want Kadir and no I can't be with him stuff. After reading pages of it throughout the book, as a plot element, it became a bit tired.
-The end. I get Emily is worried about the future of their relationship, the the constant 'what if in x days/years we get tired of each other' stuff was annoying. He was telling her he loved her and she kept avoiding it, it seemed. Sh ...more
