    This is probably one of my favorite by Sandra Marton. Of course it's kind of cliche'd. It's standard boss/secretary or actually PA/Executive assistant. Also typical brown sparrow, as the hero refers to the heroine, who turns into a beautiful song bird with a new wardrobe and hairdo. It also has bickering and funny repartee. So for those who don't like any of those tropes you can put this on your to avoid shelf. For myself I enjoy the bickering, seeing it as the H's resistance to falling in love o This is probably one of my favorite by Sandra Marton. Of course it's kind of cliche'd.

For myself I enjoy the bickering, seeing it as the H's resistance to falling in love or in this case both the H/h resisting falling in love. Each resistant to the idea of HEA and resistant to the other as even remotely suitable and complicated by strong sexual attraction. I love the laugh out loud moments. Above all else I think it's a sweet romance between two people who are just right for each other.

    This is a vintage-style HP, and I totally loved it. It was a breath of fresh air, and I adored the chemistry between the "little sparrow" heroine and the cocky boss who met his match. Really cute! This is a vintage-style HP, and I totally loved it. It was a breath of fresh air, and I adored the chemistry between the "little sparrow" heroine and the cocky boss who met his match.

    Sandra Marton is my favorite Harlequin Presents author and this book has one of those conflicted attracted-against-his-will heroes she writes so well, so it started off promisingly. Then it all dissolved into bickering and mind-changing - they're going to get together! Then they're not! Then they are! Then they're not! Then they do, but they shouldn't have, so let's pretend they didn't! Sigh. Props for an American hero and some laughs--both rare in current Presents--but they couldn't save it.

    this had so much potential and fell flat. i was tired of the h constantly changing her mind about what she wants, it was honestly ridiculous. granted, it highlighted her own insecurities about her looks and her place in H’s life, but it was overly done. I had to skim over some of it bc it was so repetitive towards the end. also, the love part of the relationship didn’t feel genuine to me. rather, it felt like sudden lust on both people’s part. she didn’t even have a good opinion of the H despite this had so much potential and fell flat. i was tired of the h constantly changing her mind about what she wants, it was honestly ridiculous. granted, it highlighted her own insecurities about her looks and her place in H’s life, but it was overly done.

I didn’t finish the book thinking it’s true love. The chemistry was lacking.

Emily es divertida sale con unas cosas, como los anuncios de periódico y Jake tiene serios problemas en su infancia y la guinda del pastel es huérfano. el libro no es malo pero no se le falto algo.

    Oh.... oh my, OMG!! I just.. I can't... I don't know how to express this in words, but this book was probably the best romance book I have ever read. It was funny, it was sweet, it was smart, it was real. This book has given me more feels than any book has ever given me. And in the good way. It was beautiful.

I don't know how to express this in words, but this book was probably the best romance book I have ever read. It was funny, it was sweet, it was smart, it was real. This book has given me more feels than any book has ever given me. And in the good way. It was beautiful. Jake was a guy who started relationships with women with the intention of ending them in a few short months. He was faithful to each of them, but never planned to have "forever" with any of his women. His assistant, Emily, was the only woman he thought of as perfect, except he didn't see her as a "woman". He thought her to be a "no-looker" who was dedicated to her job and simply wasn't interested in men. Jake didn't realize it, but he was always comparing his women to Emily, though he tells himself he doesn't think of her "that way". Everything changed when Jake found out Emily was trying to enter the dating scene, and he volunteers himself to be her mentor, much to her protest. It all snowballs from there. Jake cares so much about Emily but just doesn't realize it himself yet. I implore you all to read this book. Read the sample, and I'm sure you'll get hooked like I did.

Love both MCs but the reason why I don't give it 5 stars is because it doesn't have an epilogue with wedding bells and babies..

    I don't seem to have much luck with HP books. I just could not get over Jake's ego. He was such an inconsiderate jerk that needs to get a reality check. Every other thought in his head was how plain/average/unattractive Emily is. He looks down on her because she dresses appropriately for work, forces himself into her private life because he's jealous, and has such a big head that women should be there for him at his beck and call but disappear when he's tired of them. He's selfish, annoying, and I don't seem to have much luck with HP books. I just could not get over Jake's ego. He was such an inconsiderate jerk that needs to get a reality check. Every other thought in his head was how plain/average/unattractive Emily is. He looks down on her because she dresses appropriately for work, forces himself into her private life because he's jealous, and has such a big head that women should be there for him at his beck and call but disappear when he's tired of them. He's selfish, annoying, and a pathetic excuse for a man. Emily wasn't a bad person but she's been walked all over in her life and that's carried on into her adult life. The only time she stands up for herself is if she hears Jake insulting her but other than that she lets him bully her into doing what he wants. In front of others he can be very charming and normal the way he seemed in the very beginning the book. But all they ever do when they're alone is argue, how could she possibly be attracted to someone who makes her feel less of a women than other women and, yells at her for trying to get out there in the dating world which is what the whole agreement was about, and insults her as if she's a dimwitted airhead who can't think for herself. On top of that, Jake astoundingly is the only decent guy in the book. Every potential man for her to date has something wrong with him, either he's a shady jerk or a stuck up prude who Jake seems to be friends with but actually doesn't like them at all in reality. Emily made some naive decisions but I get why she does. She's desperate and lonely as much as she doesn't want to admit it. It may be a terrible date but a date is a date and to a woman who is barely getting into the dating scene, it's one of the most exciting things she can experience. So by the end of the book, Jake finally sees Emily for the beautiful woman that's been in front of him all along even though it takes a whole makeover for him to see it. But surprisingly, he gets his head out of his ass and even though he was a jerk for most of the book, I did come to like him. She finally puts her foot down and does what's best for herself and he goes after her. I respect that he put threw his pride away and opened himself up to her knowing fully well she could send him right back home with his tail tucked between his legs. Even though the first half of the book was irritating and and gave me a toothache from all the grinding my teeth together, I was happy and satisfied with the ending. I believed in them as a couple that would make it and I'm glad I gave this book another chance after not liking it the first time. If you can get past Jake being a douchebag most of the book, the ending will be worth it.

Jake y Emily son todo eso con la diferencia que Emily es un patito feo o eso cree ella.De hecho lo mismo opina Jake hasta que uno de sus amigos nota que es una mujer guapa.Allí el se da cuenta que Emily tal vez no este tan mal.Pero sobre todo cuando se entera que Emily esta buscando pareja por medio de una revista.Ahí el se ofrece a ayudarla a conocer hombres y a mejorar su aspecto. Las citas que tiene Emily no son muy satisfactorias y mientras sale con sus amigos,Jake se da cuenta que en realidad Emily le gusta.De hecho se acercan cada día mas,pero Jake es el típico mujeriego que no cree en el compromiso y le huye al matrimonio por eso se aleja porque sabe que Emily esta en busca de no solo el hombre ideal si no también del amor algo en lo que el no esta dispuesto a seguir...aunque le siga gustando cada día mas Emily. La historia es la típica,pero la pareja formada entre Jake y Emily ,principalmente ella tiene sus momentos cómicos y hace la lectura mas llevadera a pesar de ser algo tan común este tipo de historia en Harlequin.

    There is a LOT of back and forth between Jake and Emily that can get pretty frustrating. Neither of them can make up their minds about whether or not they want to be in a relationship with each other, and when they finally do decide to be together, it's really anti-climatic. On the other hand, they're both crazy and in denial so it's actually amusing sometimes to watch Jake get jealous of the terrible men Emily goes on dates with.

    I loved this book! Sandra writes amazing characters, and this book was no exception. It was very different for a Presents, and I adored it to pieces. Witty banter, characters who just can't resist each other no matter how they try, and that lovely push/pull of forbidden attraction. It just doesn't get any better than this. I loved this book!

    Beauty is skin deep. She is a real Plain Jane, with an efficient no nonsense approach. This is an ugly duckling waiting to transform into a swan. He is the one doing the transforming, only to realize that he wants to keep her to himself. A romantic, sensual, fun read.
