Rules of Payne
Executive Henrik Payne is used to women following his rules. When his new assistant shows him life isn't all about rules can he learn to break them?
Morgana Drake’s boss is short-tempered, self-centered, in dire need of a social life, probably an undiagnosed workaholic, and practically unbearable. Yet, she wants to ...more
To answer your question, I am busy working on it right now. I am…moreSorry for the delay in answering. I never get questions so I wasn't looking, lol!
To answer your question, I am busy working on it right now. I am hoping (fingers crossed editor and my fast typing fingers) can have it out in July. I am hoping early July, but I will definitely say sometime in July.
I orginally was going to make this one book, but when I got about half towards the end of book 1 I realized it was going to be MUCH longer then I anticipated. I try to outline things, but once I start writing it takes on a life of it's own! So, since I had promised the editor by a certain date and the book release by a certain date, I chose to cut it in half.
So, to make a very LONG story short, I am sorry to make you wait and I am glad you want to keep reading. In the mean time I hope you are being distracted (ha, ha) by the weekly posts at The Payne In The Blog: http://bit.ly/13527bb
Thanks for your question!(less)
Rules of Payne is a new adult or adult (I think it could go either way) romantic comedy. I didn't really love the cover of the book, but I loved the summary of the book. I am a big fan of rules to follow type books, and office romances, especially in the comedy arena because it normally will lead to some very funny scenes. And I can see where some people would enjoy that aspect of Rules of Payne, but this book ...more
Morgan is at a rough point in her life. After getting fired from a crappy job she is steadfastly determined to start her life and get her dream job. When she is hired on as an Assistant to Henrik Payne, she is well on her way to ...more
This book is romantic comedy standalone that also debuts Cake Love Series. Telling us about Morgana and Henrik, we get fun, sexiness, office romance and hero with a Payne-ful past (sorry, but as cheesy as it was, I couldn't leave the pun went by).
I started this series backwards, since I read The Spy Ring first (and it's actually the last book of this series so far). And I loved that book so much! And when I read it, I get glimpses ...more
Allow me to explain. Morgana is the new assistant to corporate big wig Henrik Payne. This is her dream job to help her get ...more
I am not sure that I bonded with either of the main characters but their quick wit and randomness as to their internal dialogue and talking to inanimate objects is what kept me intrigued. As for Morgana and Henrik, I ...more
In Rules Of Payne we get to meet Morgana (the cake loving thirty year old assistant to a business exec) and Henrick (The hot and hot tempered exec Morgana has the “hots” for), and enjoy their hilarious yet tension filled on again off again (seeing each other but not really) relationship.
Part of the story is told from Morgana’s point of view, and the other part is told from Henrick’s. I really liked being able to ...more
Kudos to any author that can write like Ms. Lynx did with the mixture of steamy sex ...more
Rules of Payne was a different kind of book to read. It was quick-witted enough, but the structure of the chapters was split between the two major characters, Morgana Drake and Henrik Payne. Now a lot of books I read do that, but these were long blocks to read for one perspective before they bounced back to the other character and I had trouble sticking with the book because of that.
I loved Morgana’s POV which ...more
I have never read a novel by this author and after reading the synopsis I knew this book was for me. WARNING – Steamy Sex Scenes – Cake addiction – Incorrect usage of the word Potatoes. OK cake had me sold and I was curious about the use of potatoes, so once I got the book I dove in and fell in love with the characters and the author. This novel is a quick, funny and sex read. The story flows perfectly and the characters are developed really well. The author writes the ...more
Rules of Payne was one of those books that started out very promising, and then very suddenly – and very unfortunately – went downhill.
Morgana was so funny and adorable, it was pretty hard not to feel attached to her: she was quirky and independent, and while her narration could feel a bit ridiculous at times, she always made up for it with her humor and charm. I loved reading her chapters, and I think the novel would have done a ...more
Rules of Payne was a cute, quick, relatively fast paced book.
This story flowed well, even though it wasn't written like a traditional story. The first half was Morgana's point of view and explained a lot of the situation up to the current time. I enjoyed her character and her fearlessness -she's sassy, sarcastic, and full of life.
Being a 20-something single, career oriented woman has put Morgana out of the "social" ...more
Omg the things that Morgana thinks up and the conversations she has are to die for, they will have you in stitches. Henrik oh I so wanted to smack him, although this book has a cliffhanger I couldn't wait to move on too the next one to see what happens, so good
I started reading this on the back of another book that was written only from the hero's POV. When I started this book the first 10 chapters were from the hero's POV and I just wasn't in the mood for that. Yes there was a nice mix of humour and angst, with some amusing internal dialogue, but Henrik doesn't always come ...more
Henrik has been haunted from his past. He is the present day Grinch that stays around all year long! He is a very successful Executive and is in need of an assistant. He is not able to get someone to put up with his ways. ...more
If I had to come up with one word to describe this book, it would be hilarious! Time after time, I found myself laughing out loud as I read and I may have gotten more than a few sideways looks from people around me.
Morgana was intelligent and sassy, and far more patient with Payne's eccentricities than I would have been able to manage. As for Payne, I have to say that I liked him a lot even at his worst. It was clear that he didn't feel worthy of having a ...more
Elizabeth Lynx is brand new to me and boy did she give me a fun novel with loads of hilarious banter, two quirky characters, and tons of sexual tension...
Rules of Payne is the first standalone novel in the Cake Love series and an excellent rom-com that will have your smiling ear to ear. This book was so good... fun, light, sweet, sexy and unique. I loved every minute of Henrik and Morgana's story, savouring each bite they gave me.
His new assistant is gonna make him break all the ...more
Henrick does everything he can to repel Morgana. He doesn't want to want her. He doesn't have time to date or have girlfriends. Morgana is so much fun in that she can roll with the punches. She's tough, aloof, and someone you just want to be friends with.
Henrick is one heck of a jerk. The way he is written, it just works for him. It's done in a way you love to hate. For it to work properly. You need a ...more
A hot, succulent, scrumptious, dirty romance with just the right amount of humor and OMG the sex....WOWZA! Henrik and Morgana are a super-powered couple that BURN up the pages with their sizzling chemistry.
Elizabeth Lynx created a book that will leave you panting AND squirming AND laughing! Her writing had me biting my lip and eagerly flipping the pages. Her characters are interesting and developed and HOT. You can't pass up a book like this!
Rules Of Payne gets ...more
I will say that while there were times I enjoyed reading this book, more times than naught, the characters got on my nerves. The story did flow, however, I felt like the characters were slightly wishy washy, and I felt like there was potential for Morgana to be a stronger character than she was. She was run over too ...more
" This is dedicated to anyone who has told you no....to anyone who told you you have no talent... tell them to su*k it. Tell them I have had " no" thrown at me so many times , I have told myself I have no talent, and with my learning disability I could never be a writer. Yet here I am, and here you are reading my words. Tell them that you can do it with hard work and belief. I ...more
I loved the mixture of hilarious inner monologue commentary from Morgana and also the raw emotions from Henrik in the last 50% of this book. Rules of Payne was a great kickstart to the Cake Love series and I can't wait to see what will happen next...this did not end in ...more
I cake!!!! Henrik you're really a sweet Payne in Morgana's life!!!
Girl, High five, I was having so much fun!
But why this cliffhanger????
** ARC provided by the author via Indie Sage **
Laughing out Loud Alert!
Rules of Payne was like taking a bite of a cake and hoping it will never last.
Each bite leading to a full variety of sensations, and through this story, I was having so much fun, reading Morgana’s problems against Henrik’s rules.
One perky, hilarious and sexy red haired girl working
