I like this story. Quick and to the point. It was great to past the time. So, after reading this book, the blurb felt like a chapter because it’s like the story picks up from the blurb. I felt the end was abrupt or where it ended just felt that way to me. There was a particular scene I wanted to know what happened, but it

3.5 Stars

Stories about an office romance is one of my favorite genres, but I have rules:

1. It must be between two people on the same level and
2. No sex in the office!

Otherwise, I’m on pins and needles waiting for them to get caught and fired! However, this is not THAT story, but it’s a quick read, between a man that knows what he wants, and a woman that wants to give it to him. Read It!

Billionaire Boss
by Aries.Pisces

This is my first book by Peyton Banks and I would read more. Although this is a short story rather than a full on book, the plot was well executed and the characters were were fleshed out. While the ending isn't totally abrupt, I wish there had been a bit more of the story leading up to the events that transpired.

My one irritation is that Soraya, as so many women in these boss/subordinate stories, wanted to keep the relationship out of the office so that there wou

The addition starts with the book cover….yeah…yeah…yeah don’t judge a book by its cover they say ….well we all do it and this one here it is the scratch to your itch or better yet the filling to your oreos! Speaking of filling…..wait, that’s for later. Within the first chapters you get the panoramic view of whom you’re dealing with! By the time you’ve figured out who is who and who to like and dislike, you’re already hooked, and you may as well give up the fight and prepare yourself for an all-n ...more

Kinkade Hamilton is the CEO of a financial company and one of the few African American who is in charge of a thriving financial business. His assistant, Soraya Stevens had been a big help in his company's success. He's also had a crush on her for sometime now. What he didn't know is that Soraya felt the same way about him. When an opportunity came, he took it and took her to a party but there is a clause in their workbo

Soraya has been executive assistant to Kincade for six months. She has been attracted to him from day one. Human Resources has a no fraternization clause so she just fantasizes about a relationship. Little does she know he’s as attracted to her as she is to him. He decides to do something about their mutual attraction. This was a short book but it was packed with hot scenes. I enjoyed the interactions between the characters. I really hope Kincade’s brother, Braxton gets his own story. I highly r ...more

Soraya Stevens, has just landed her dream job as an executive assistant (nice Job); but all she can thinks about is her eye candy handsome billionaire boss Kincaid Hamilton when she should be working.

This was a great short read with great characters, job romance, that left me wanting more pages because it end just as things were getting good.

Will Kincaid and Soraya get their HEA, will Soraya be able to continue to work for Kincaid if their office romance fails; inquiring minds will just have t

When you typically think of someone having eyes for their boss, you may think it's a bad idea. A relationship with your boss can't cause anything but drama. What happens when both parties are invested in seeing where things can go? Kincaid knew what he wanted, and it was Soraya.

This story captured my attention from the start. It had a nice and steady flow throughout. Although it was a short read, it was more than capable of standing on its own. My only complaint was it left me wanting more of t

This office romance will keep you caught up in the office drama of the story. Soraya has just landed her dream job but all she can do is dream about her boss Kinkaid Hamilton. What she doesn't know is that Kinkaid has dreams of his own and they include Soraya. Will these two make an office love connection that leads them down the path to a happily ever after? This is one story with hot scenes and an alpha who will inspire you to find a Kinkaid of your own!

For Saroya working her way to a position of executive assistant for her billionaire boss is a dream come true for two reasons. It is a good job and she is attracted to and interested in the man himself. Kincaid too interested in her and they have definite chemistry so the professional does mix with the personal. But as often happens, there are consequences when you break the rules. Will they be able to find their HEA? I enjoyed this short office romance.

Soraya is the executive assistant of Kincade Hamilton, CEO of Hamilton Financial Corporation. Soraya was attracted to her boss but she was aware of a memo on fraternizing policy sent out by their Human Resource department. Kincade has plans for Soraya too. Would the policy regarding employee fraternization stop him? A short office romance story, it is sweet and steamy with great characters and a satisfying happily ever after ending.

Fast Paced and Wonderful Read

Breaking The Rules is fast paced and a completely addictive read that Peyton Banks has brought out. This book is a wonderful and enjoyable book that will have you flipping the last page a couple of times making sure you didn’t miss anything.

I’m looking forward to seeing a couple more stories from this book.

I enjoyed reading about the intense feelings in this relationship. The trials, the emotional drama and the unexpected passion. The chemistry between the H and h is undeniable and unexpected. The  misunderstandings lead to a bit of  wasted time. Connecting with the characters may come easy in this story, following the plot might not be

A good short story if you are looking for a quick read without much substance. Soraya has gotten her dream job and quickly becomes Kincade's assistant through merit. Their relationship becomes personal and they must deal with talk from those making assumptions. There is some steam between the sheets and elsewhere, but not much depth to the characters. ...more

Working hard is easy. Working for others who your attracted to gets a little dicey, But a slip of the tongue figuratively and literally can cause heart palpitations and an adventure. Good read. Billionaire or not Kincade seems to have the right stuff. Soraya is excited to experience it all. No cliffhanger

For some reason this author recent books is not getting so much of my attention has her older books has. I’m going because her recent books have been short and it doesn’t have that much of a story going on. Don’t know the reason but so far they haven’t. The written is good and it has that hot moments I love reading but this story was just not there for me.

An entertaining office romance page turner! It is well written, well thought out, emotionally deep, and will leave you wanting more. The characters you will love; the chemistry between them is off the charts! Definitely recommended!

I need a Kincade for sure lol, Soraya was too cute and she better get the man and the job and walk with her head high. Kincade knew what he wanted he just needed to by time and then he took what he wanted because always gets what he wants!!!

Cute, quick read

Lusting after your boss is usually a bad thing! But Kincaid Hamilton, is anything but ordinary. He kept it professional, until he couldnt. Kincaide and Soraya were adorable. He did not play about his woman. Enjoyed it. 👍👍👍

A good story that was on the shorter side. The story had some really good moments but there didn’t seem to be much to the story itself. The character development was also a bit lacking.

I requested a copy of this book so I could provide an honest review.

It was such a waist of my time to read (even if it take less then 1 hour) such a vapid story. There is nothing happening, story and characters are just plain flat

This is the perfect read for a lazy Saturday. This man is fine, loaded and a romantic. What else could a woman want right? I'm new to this author's work but I'm definitely hooked!
