Promoted to Wife? Running a multibillion dollar company meant long hours for Zac Prescott Thankfully his efficient assistant made the workload almost bearable Theirs was a strictly professional relationshipuntil the night Emily Reynolds finally let her hair down And the tycoon took full advantage by stealing a kissSuddenly all Zac could concentrate on was his once plain Jane secretary Too bad that after the kiss she'd uit Could he lure her back with better prospectsand add some pleasure to the job description Or was Emily looking for the ultimate promotionto wife While this romance followed a pretty standard format it really didn't flick my switch The heroine had huge self esteem issues and this coupled with the huge power imbalance of having a relationship with her boss made it seem like a 50s pairing than a 2011 one Emily seemed to have a few control issues as well needing complete control over all aspects of her life but then strangely unable to control herself around her boss Zac Either start a relationship or don't; don't just dither to and fro No means NoThe chemistry between the two was well written but the rest of their relationship seemed pretty far fetched for a modern audience especially some aspects of the ending I know romances are supposed to have a happy ending but really this was a little ridiculous to whom it may concernplease excuse emily from work today she is suffering from so many physical ailments i felt it was best to put her to bed immediately among her complaints are flushed thighs racing blood lossfaltering of breath redness of cheeks melting bones burning skin racing pulse and explosions using webmdcom i have concluded she has either a panic disorder a snake bite dermatitis or herpes simplex at any rate i felt it was best to keep her home away from zac in whose presence these symptoms seem to become pronouncedTHINK OF TEH HEROINEsincerelykaren t brissettebook club membercome to my blog Rbrs #11I'm glad the title has a uestion mark at the end because what the heck kind of message would it have without that little suiggle of doubt or even worse if it had been an exclamation point I was once talking to a coworker's wife about the rough work week that was happening and she casually tossed out that all I'd have to do was get married and then I wouldn't have to work at all I didn't know what to say to that and suppressed my immediate urge to vent a spittle filled pssh of disbelief or an oh my God or horror or a motherfcker of disgust I ended up giving a non commital laugh with a neutral I guess that works for some We didn't become friendsI don't mean that choosing work over creating family is the way to go but I certainly don't believe choosing to focus on the domestic over work is superior I hugely admire people who've made all kinds of choices career driven family centric tackling both and the tendency to raise one over the other isnot goodAnyway the title is unfitting for what ended up unfolding in this book Did anyone else think the timeline was screwy that the book stated she'd worked for this dude for 2 years but then later the dude stated she'd worked for him for 6 months? Maybe I misunderstood A woman who is very good at her job attempts to go back to school to prepare for her own business life coaching and I laugh at the thought of it but looking at my path so far maybe I could benefit from it She'd been careful to keep herself businesslike and totally disguised with glasses as we know from the movies glasses can hide everything from superhuman strength to a smokin' body and boxy blazers but her boss chanced to see her in casual clothes and got the hots for her He tricks her into staying as she is his assistant but it's okay because they're meant to be together Before they realize this he coerces her into a sexytimes arrangement but it's okay because she really actually wants him too There are a few cardboard conflicts including a dead ex husband's debts rich family issues a blip of a stalker At the veeeeeery end there's a tacked on marriage proposal Oops spoiler alert And hey it all works out in the end because spoiler alert her father in law to be agrees to fund her studies and business None of these should be spoilersI did appreciate that even though she's supposed to be totally gorgeous with great jugs and hot buns this is embarrassing it's like my sorry excuse for cussing but different she's awkward Not original but at least she's not perfectI realize I'm overlaying my own working values over this reverie of a situation that this is not intended to be realistic but the contemporary setting throws me off and I think it makes me not expect everything to work out just rightI have to add in my field by the time someone gains enough experience to become a managerboss they've usually married their schoolteacher sweetheart had a few kids lost the hairline and refused to give up those now too tight slacks resulting in muffintops All my bosses have been fatherly in their contact with me and in my view of them The fantasy of getting with the boss has never been one that I wanted This book is not for me I take whatever book I am reading with me wherever I go so it was inevitable that someone was going to catch me reading Promoted to Wife? in public It just happened to be at our local grocery store I am well known there because I cook for our family every night and I love fresh produce and ingredients I am at the store daily So when Diane one of the cashiers saw me reading Promoted to Wife? she was uite happy to tease me and I took it with good grace But as I walked away she said “You could learn some things from reading books like that sic” I thought “Really?” So here’s what I learnedTwelve Things I Learned Reading Promoted to Wife?12 I am too fat and poor and old to be desirable in any way 11 Romance is all about domination and mindgames10 I spend way too much time making love when I make love I should just fall asleep when it is all over 9 Communication schommunication8 Screw flowers and chocolate expensive shoes are the perfect romantic gift7 Computer billionaires Real Estate millionaires and Mafiosos have nothing in common 6 It is my groin that should be swelling rather than my penis 5 You can’t be friends if the things you do to one another are “downright dirty”4 You really can write a book set in Australia without any marsupials 3 Motherhood doesn’t define the uintessential feminine that would be shopping 2 A little bit of rape is acceptable so long as your lover wants it 1 I could have learned the previous eleven lessons except maybe #4faster and enjoyably watching Days of Our Lives You know though I wouldn't be opposed to reading another
