I knew that Ms Garnier has written for other publishing Companies such as Ellora's Cave so knew she has a saucy style of writing.

Even though Harlequins are not as graphic as others Ms Garnier still managed to get quite a bit of steam into this book. The sexy tension was quite high in places and some of the conversations between the H & h was quite steamy too.

I definately like Ms Garnier's style of writing and will look into some of her other works :)

This one started off strong, but it petered way out in the second half. She wrote some smoking hot sexual tension between the hero and heroine and when that was gone, there wasn't much left to hang the mediocre plot on. I was skimming the increasingly superfluous sex scenes by the end and all but skipped the worthless epilogue.

This was just ok. No strong feelings either way.

Bit of a slow start, but it improved quickly, tapering off to a bit of an average ending. Still a solid 4 star read with some steamy silhouette rated love scenes.

definitely worth a read.
Likable characters with good chemistry.
the conflict was really weak and the ending felt kind of rushed (but I still liked it; he could have groveled more, but we do see him suffer ;)
the writing felt a bit stilted sometimes.
and OMG! what a stupid title!!!!!!

The boss-assistant is my favorite trope of all time, but sadly, the romances coming out of this trope tend to be badly written and full of cliches.

This one looked promising at the beginning, but petered out once the sex was out of the way for the couple.
