Jamie Connors has given up on finding a man. Despite being smart, pretty, and just slightly overweight, she's a magnet for the kind of guys who don't stay around.
Her sister's wedding is at the foreground of the family's attention. Jamie would be fine with it if her sister wasn't pressuring her to lose weight so she'd fit in the maid of honor dress, her mother would get off her case, and her ex-boyfriend wasn't about to become her brother-in-law.
Determined to step out on her own, she accepts a PA position from billionaire Alex Reid. The job includes an apartment on his property and gets her out of living in her parents' basement.
Jamie has to balance her life and somehow figure out how to manage her billionaire boss without falling in love with him.
The Boss is book one in the Managing the Bosses series. All your questions won't be answered in the first book. It may end on a cliff hanger.
For mature audiences only. There are adult situations, but this is a love story, not erotica.

This is insulting!
The story implies that Jamie is over weight at a size 12. Really? When there are shows on the air like the biggest loser with real people who are over weight with real health problems. I am annoyed with the message this story implies that "overweight" people are hideous and can't find love. This story also uses the sisters wedding as the focal point to drive the story. I mean really who are these people? One daughters wedding over takes the other daughters professional career. Christine the bride to be expects her sister Jamie to delay taking a job until her wedding is planned.
Let's talk about the ex boyfriend/brother -in-law to be, Steven. He describes Jamie, to Alex as unattractive and hideous and overweight. What does that say about his character. He must have seen something in her to date her at one point in his life, unless he is a dirt bag user. I can understand that you date one sister and end up with the other, I can buy that because sometimes people's personalities don't mesh. I just find the premise of this storyline weak.
Let's talk about this narrator she is awful. Monotone and the characters all sound the same. The cliffhanger is not enticing me to complete this series.

This one of those stories that just makes you want to smack the main character's whole family. I am not sure why this grown woman listens to her family to such an extent that they literally try to ruin her life. I felt as though the story accents too much on the main character's weight. I mean I get it already the family wants her to loose weight but ,geez, does it have to be throughout the whole story. Then to have to plan pretty much the whole family who thinks you are nothing but a modern day Cinderella. SMH All I know is I hope her next book ends better than the first. Oh and I forgot to mention, in case you missed the cover, she is working for a very hot boss. At least Prince Charming is something to look forward to in this woman's pathetic life. I am thinking that this book was an introduction so until then I will keep an open mind. I've already bought it so we'll see.
