Liam Davenport is the most infuriating man I’ve ever known – and he’s my boss.
Worse, he’s undeniably sexy. At least until I’m subject to one of his trademark sighs of disapproval. I’m counting the days until I can walk away from this job. But first, I need to survive the trip from hell he’s dragged me on. One entire week with his arrogant smile and my unexpected naughty

4 Stupid Girl Stars

I’d be lucky if I didn’t murder my boss by the end of the week. Then again, I looked terrible in orange and was certain I wouldn’t like prison. Such a shame.

Miss Understanding was the perfect afternoon read. An office romance involving a bastard boss, the ridiculously accommodating assistant and many wrong impressions, I seriously inhaled this book.

Kendall Tate is the assistant to a boss that barely acknowledges her, nor her work. She has spent the last four months wanting to

…meets Mr Oblivious

How frustrating would it be if the beautiful man in front of you was an absolute DOUCHEWAFFLE? I’m not talking egotistical jerk or even an arrogant manwhore type of douchewaffle... this douchewaffle is Mr Oblivious. Sure, he notices some things in his peripheral but generally, he’s absolutely oblivious to everything outside of work. Mr Oblivious is also Mr Workaholic. The beautiful man has no social life, forgets to use his manners and has very high standards when it comes to

At this time I have read this book twice.... and both times it had me feeling it all! This is kind of an enemies-to-lovers story, but really that is only because Liam is trying his hardest to make Kendall hate him so that there is no temptation! He is a jerk of the century boss. The kind that no one would want to work for. But then when they finally get together...... H-O-T! This book had me laughing.... I there was no major ugly cry involved this time.... but there were some tears in my eyes ...more

4.5 Stars!

What a great start to a new series! When I heard that Aubrey Bondurant was coming out with a new series, with the first being enemies-to-lovers/office romance (two of my favorites!), I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. As with all of Aubrey's books, the story sucked me in and I had a really hard time putting my kindle down. Liam is an attorney who has his mind set on making partner at his firm and lets just say, isn't so nice to his assistant, Kendell. Kendell was making do with the

4.5 Stars

Kendall Tate, 24, is a legal secretary with a hot-cold boss. As in he has a cold demeanor, but he’s hot to look at. Liam Davenport, 32, is determined to keep his assistant at a distance. As a workaholic, he doesn’t want anything getting in his way—like a relationship.

“Cinderella had her dress. Now I just wondered if my Prince Charming would be a dick at the ball.”

Liam starts out pretty cold and abrupt, but he grows as the story progresses (with his family background being

Loved Liam & Kendall!!

I absolutely loved this! Enemies to lovers is one of favorite tropes, and then add office romance into the mix? Yes, please!!

Kendall is the perfect heroine. She’s strong and confident and sassy and knows how to hold her own...and surprisingly hold her tongue, when really, she’d love nothing more than to tell Mr. Sexy Pants boss man where to shove it. grumpy, so uptight, so...bossy. And anti-relationship and cold and sometimes rude and seemingly heartless.

Miss Understanding is the amazing start to a new series by Aubrey Bondurant. I am absolutely in love with it! Liam is the perfect pain in the ass boss for Kendall. But he is hiding a lot under that asshole exterior. Will Kendall be able to reach the real Liam? An absolute must read.

Miss Understanding is a hot, fun, sexy office read! Kendall and Liam drew me in right from the start, I read this book in one sitting! The writing was strong and I like the character development and depth of their history. For me the actual story line/plot was familiar and a little predictable. It did not take away from the writing or my love for these characters!!

Wow watching Aubrey learn her craft and get better with each book leaves me feeling like a proud mum. This is her beta book to date it is amazingly written and I simply could not put it down. Liam is a cold and infuriating boss but is he as unfeeling as he appears. Kendall is pretty kickass and his legal secretary. I loved the banter between these two the writing was just superb. The emotions were delicately written but packed a punch. The sexy time is off the charts but also written in a way ...more

5 ALL THE FEELS STARS!! This book is PERFECTION!! The feels in Liam and Kendall story is off the charts. Their story had me, laughing, crying, mad, sad and kept me flipping pages. This author words are like watching a movies, clear and precise, there is nothing missing. The characters are so likeable, even when they are jerks like Liam at times. This is a must read.....grab it now.

It's been a cool minute since I visited Aubrey Bondurant's brilliant world, but I'm so glad I'm back with it, because Miss Understanding was AMAZING! In fact, it was such an awesome experience that I will be reading it again in the very near future. Yeah, I know readers say that all the time, but I'm being serious for real! This story is about that whole enemies to lovers in an office romance setting, and I seem to have a weakness for this type of story. I'm not saying that I didn't absolutely ...more

I dived into this hoping to love it as much as the blurb. But there were parts of the story and the characters that frustrated me.
The story starts off great, we meet Kendall, she is Liam’s secretary and he’s a complete jerk. Totally cold and standoffish, his only focus is work and he’s not prepared to give the gorgeous lady an extra second of his time. That is until she stands up to him and he truly looks at her. I mean he has to blink to clear the work focus fog that he has kept himself in,

5 star Review Miss Understanding (Miss Series #1) by Aubrey Bondurant

Aubrey Bondurant is a relatively new author to me I am so glad I found her. This is the first book in her new series and if this one is anything to go by, she is off to a flying start.

Liam Davenport frustrated me so much at times with his jerk like behaviour. He is arrogant and totally in control, until Kendall Tate barrels in to his life. He is determined to ignore the attraction that sizzles between him and his assistant

What an absolutely brilliant love story .
The characters of Liam & Kendall grabbed my heart and held it in a warm hug from the beginning of the story right the way to the very end .

Liam has always thought that to be worthy he always had to do better and better in everything he did . His work took over his life , his goal was to reach the top and then push even higher .......then , along came Kendall.

Kendall had to put her dreams on hold , her family needed her . She works as a legal

MISS UNDERSTANDING is an example of the kind of romance books I love to read. There’s a credible storyline, the plotting and pacing is spot on, there’s humour peppered throughout, I like the main characters and I think they make a great couple.

Liam Davenport and Kendall Tate are both strong and hard-working individuals. Their underlying vulnerabilities made for complex characters that I was interested in reading about. They often butt heads, making for some very funny scenes, but what I loved

I really enjoyed this book. I thought Kendall and Liam had really great chemistry and I enjoyed watching the sparks fly between them. I thought that Kendall was very relatable because of how she was living her life and having to deal with such an obnoxious boss on a daily basis because of it. Plus, anyone that has found themselves in this situation is sure to get a big chuckle out of her "List". Liam was definitely a character that had to grow on you but once his layers started to be revealed I ...more

First I want to say I am a big fan of this author and was super excited to get my hands on this gem. And Ms. Bondurant did not disappoint with Liam and Kendall. I could not put this book down once I started it. I just loved how their story unfolded and the flow in which it was written. I totally fell head over heels for Liam even when he was being a jacka$$. I was still rooting for these two. I honestly can say I will be rereading this one again. Definitely recommend. Can't wait to see what is ...more

What a journey this book will take you on. Aubrey Bondurant is a new author to me and I will definitely be reading more from this author . I was captured right from the start. Brilliant characters that you will fall in love with... ok maybe not straight away with Liam but you will eventually .Kendall has an amazing sassy attitude and Liam is a sexy as sin but icy cold alpha Male. They both lead completely different lives and have opposite reasons for their goals. They say opposites attract, but ...more

This is the 1st in this amazing series and is Liam and Kendall’s story. Liam is a workaholic who is not the easiest of bosses, and Kendall is his assistant. This is a well written story which is emotional, humorous, and a great enemies / lover’s tale. I look forward to reading more in this addictive series.

What a great book. I thoroughly enjoyed the uptight extremely handsome bossy boss tamed by the naive hard working assistant. The forbidden office romance seemed ‘more’ in this book - it was typical, but just so much better.

Loved it!

Liam and Kendall are like ice royalty, each trying to freeze the other out. But when the snow falls, the ice melts and they are forced to learn how to bow to one another. And that’s when the heat rises to the perfect temperature for actual struggles to come in to play. This book has everything you want from an enemies to lovers romance. Brava!

This author is a new-ish author to me and I have really enjoyed everything I have read so far, so when it was announced that a new series was coming, I couldn’t wait to read it and it was better than I thought. I could not put down Liam and Kendall’s story. It is an enemies to lovers romance filled full of intense but sweet moments that had me dying to see how it all ended. If you have not read this author before, then this is the perfect place to start!!

I’m a huge fan of the super talented Aubrey Bondurant, and I’ve read everything she has written. She gets better with each book, which is truly saying something since every book has been fantastic. Her writing style is best described as adult contemporary erotic romantic comedy—smutty chick-lit—but whatever anyone calls it, make no mistake, readers will be treated to an engaging, smart and witty story. She writes the kind of romances that just pull the reader right in with a sexy love

On the beginning of my review I must confess something to you. I am quite new to Aubrey's writing but after few her books and this one especially I know that I will be waiting for more. Yes this story is so good and it has got one of my favourite tropes - enemies to lovers and office romance in one amazing story. It will suck you in and it would be really hard for all of you to put your reader down.
It's a story about Liam and Kendell. He is an attorney set on a goal to become a partner in his

I received a complimentary ARC - early release copy of this book in Kindle format from the author for review purposes.

This is my first time reading this author and I LOVED it a lot. This is a boss/employee romance with a twist I guess you can say. Liam is a lawyer and Kendall, his assistant and they both work together and he is a royal pain in the neck. He has to go home for a week before a big meeting with a clients deposition and so he takes Kendall with him.

He has not been home in many many

What a great start to the new Miss Series and if book 1 Miss Understanding is anything to go by this will be a great series that I’m sure I will be reading and re-reading.
Liam doesn’t want Kendall his PA to like him, he wants to be the boss everyone hates and he is doing his best to make sure she has no reason to like or think he will ever be anything more than her obnoxious boss.....but the problem is the attraction is instant and the chemistry sizzling and what can I say about the witty
