This book ended up being so much better than I expected. I had my doubts when I startet on this book, just an other boss and secretary romance, and yes in a way it is, but it is so much more that that. And it had me captivated from the first page, I couldn't put the book down.

First we meet the boss, Bastian Burke, at work he is strict, orderly, polite and he expect his personel to work just as hard as he dos and keep their personel life, well personel. Off work we meet a broken hearted man, that

This book certainly didn't end up by being the story I thought it would be. Let me backtrack a little, I never read the blurb to any of Tia's books as I just automatically jump straight in. But this book had so much going on!!! I thought this would be a story about an office romance (hence the title) but that part is so minute. This story is about Bastian who falls in love with Joanna whilst protecting her from her crazy ex. She also just happens to be his employee.
There is plenty of action and

The book had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. It’s heartbreaking, beautiful, dramatic, and sexy all at the same time! Joanna is in an abusive relationship. Her boss, Bastian, who always wanted her yet never acted on it took it upon himself and decided to protect her from the sadistic, crazy boyfriend who is also a cop.

Bastian, is in every sense of the word, a hero. He’s a hard worker with high standards for himself and his employees. When Joanna shows up late one day and he sees

Protected by my Boss - A Billionaire and his Secretary Romance by Tia Siren is a very good read. Hot, sexy and steamy, this well written story is very entertaining. Storyline is engaging and offers drama, romance and suspense. A great read that is very enjoyable. I am posting an honest review after reading an ARC copy of this book.

Joanna has worked for Bastian Burke for a few months now and she is always so quiet and submissive when it comes to any interaction she has with him. Bastian has always lusted after Joanna and her beautiful curves, but he knows not to mix business with pleasure and she isn't his normal type of woman that he sleeps with anyway. Joanna has a problem and his name is Sid, her super posessive, very abusive, detecti

I love this book, I didn't want to put it down. Joanna works for a hot boss but her life is anything from perfect. Waiting at home for her everyday is her abusive cop boyfriend who loves nothing more than taking his bad days out on her. Joanna wants to stay at work and never go home because she never knows Sid's moods and what he will do to her. She's tired of hiding the bruises, putting on extra makeup to try and cover them, hoping no one will see and ask questions.

What an amazing read by Tia Siren and I have to say it’s my favorite from this author so far. There’s suspense, lust/love and two people who have been hurt, one in the past by an ex and the other currently being abused by her partner. Bastian has been Joanna’s boss for years and he has heard the rumours of her boyfriend, Sid, being very possessive and controlling and until he witnesses him manhandling and hurting her does he step in. But it’s not easy considering he has feelings for Joanna and o ...more

Standing ovation for Tia Siren! The book is amazing. It talks about things that are happening in our society, give us some perspective about them and at the same time entraps you in a sexy romance story.

Bastian is a womanizer but it's just the way to cope from a broken heart that left him many many scars. At work he is just about work but he have a soft place for Joanna, an executive assistant at his company. She is gorgeous and a little shy. He works hard every day to not do something about tha

Bastian and Joanna’s journey to HEA is fraught with peril but don’t worry there are plenty of heartwarming and steamy moments to make the roller-coaster worth the ride. Joanna is in trouble - she finds herself in an impossible situation. It’s started how it always seems to - Sid seemed sweet and protective, but it quickly turned ugly and soon she found herself in a nightmare with no way of escaping. Sid’s charm and job on the force seems to have everyone fooled, not to mention it takes away any ...more

This was annoying ...two stars for effort

The first couple of pages were good, as was the last few pages. Everything else in between flat lined. The heroine went from shy, abused victim to a clingy dope in less than 24 hours.

So the heroine has been working with H for years and has always behaved professionally ans reserved. They only had a working relationship. Then h gets physically abused and H rescues her but taking her to his house. That same night h decides to strip for

Tia writes such great books and this was no different. This had suspense, action, resists and turns and love. Bastian is the CEO of his company and has only had flings. His ex-wife made it difficult for him to trust another woman and have a real relationship. Joanna is one of his assistants, and has been working for him for the past few years. She is also having problems at home with her boyfriend, Sid. He is very overprotective to the point of being abusive. While she is out with her best frien ...more

Bastian was a playboy billionaire, every since his ex-wife played him. He wasn’t going to give his heart to anyone else. Joanna was an employee of his. She was in an abusive relationship with a cop. They both had thoughts about each other. Bastian ran into Joanna and her friend at a concert. Her boyfriend got physical with her outside and Bastian came to her aid. She was late coming to work the next work day and when she came in it was plain to see she had bruises on her neck and a black eye. Ba ...more

I wasn’t a fan of this one – I didn’t even have the gumption to finish it. My biggest problem? The main characters are absolute idiots. Alone, they’re annoying at best, but put them together and they’re downright unbearable. The only reason I made it as far as I did was because the book was set in Salt Lake City/Park City, Utah. Seeing as I’m from Utah, I never would have guessed I’d encounter a book like this set in Utah. I mean, can you imagine, Utah as the sexy setting for sexy encounters? Ta ...more

This was a bit different from some of her other books in that it had a slightly darker side to it in the way of why Joanna needs the protection her boss Bastian offers her. She has been in a relationship with a cop that over the years has turn from a good one to one of abuse and control.

Well Done Tia Siren!! I wish I could give this one more than 5-stars, would consider this book one of Tia's best, if not her best! This is a wonderfully well written story with drama, angst, love, lust, heat & one hot alpha male that sure knows how to protect the one he loves. The chemistry between Bastian and Joanna is scorching it can't be denied or contained!

Great story!! Bastian is a good looking billionaire CEO and can have any woman he wants. After his short marriage and divorce, he chooses not to be hurt again so he sticks with one night stands.

Bastian is attracted to his secretary but he keeps telling himself that she’s not his type, until he starts losing sleep because of constant dreams about having her in his bed.

Initially I liked Bastian Burke, our Hero. He came across as a strong alpha who expected and commanded respect in his office. He's supposed to be a smart successful billionaire running a capital management company, yet he appeared at times to be completely naive to basic HR issues concerning interoffice relationships until his lawyer kept repeating warnings to him. The author initially portrayed our heroine, Joanna, as a strong, professional woman whose personal life was a dangerous mess. Yet, w ...more

It was a good story, but I had some serious issues with the timelines being off and the grammatical errors. How can someone have just gone missing 8 hours prior, flip a cou[ple pages and it's been 2 days, go forward a couple more pages and suddenly it's back to having only been 8 hours? Unless someone's got the use of a time machine, that's just not possible. And if they did, this would have been a completely different story.

Excellent contemporary billionaire, work romance. This book was exciting in that there was a lot of emotional issues. Some of these issues dealt with domestic violence, both verbal and physical abuse so there could be triggers. In spite of this the author made a female character that was venerable yet also strong. Sid, the abusive cop is a character you want to hate. Whereas Bastian, the boss, is someone who was hurt by love so believes it's safer not to trust or love a women until Joanna. Joann ...more

Bastian was exactly what Joanna needed and when she needed it. He can't deny he is attracted to her, but he won't touch her for so many reasons. All those reasons don't mean anything when she is in danger. He will stop at nothing to make sure she is protected and safe from any danger of her ex-boyfriend. Even if that means he will lose his company. Joanna isn't sure she can trust her feelings after the abuse at the hands of her ex-boyfriend. She is even less sure she can trust Bastian, but feels ...more

First, fair warning. This book may cause some triggers about abuse. If that may upset you, then this may be a book to pass on. If it is not, then you REALLY need to read this book!! It was so emotional there were multiple times that I was crying as well as wanting to strangle someone. Not to mention the passion in this story!! I really could not put it down. I was on the edge of my seat to see what would happen next until I turned the very last page. Absolutley loved it and think this was one of ...more
