Starr Media Second-Assistant Survival Guide

1. Don't call your hot boss the antichrist to his face.
2. Don't stare at hot boss's, um, package or his full sleeve of tattoos. (No. Really. Stop!)
3. Don't get on the malicious first assistant's bad side.
4. Don't forget to memorize the 300-page employee manual.
5. If you value your cashmere, steer clear of boss’s dog.
6. Boss’s dimples are lust-inducing. Do. Not. Give. In.
7. “The elevator ate your clothes” is not a valid excuse for showing up to important meetings half dressed.
8. Don't break seven of the rules within the first week of employment if you, ya know, are in dire need of money to support your sick mom.
9. Whatever you do, don’t fall for the boss. See rule eight about sick mom.
10. Never forget the rules.

  • Office romance

    By hnobbs
    This was a good work place romance. Lainey gets a job as second assistant to Brogan Starr in his social media company. On her second day she makes some questionable comments about her boss...unknowingly to him. Luckily she doesn’t lose her job. Of course this makes her interesting to Brogan and even though he wants to stay away there is just something about Lainey that draws him in. I liked how Brogan didn’t make it easy for her to like him at all times, he jumped to conclusions about her even realizing that it didn’t sound like something she would do. But his life revolves around his work/company and he doesn’t want anything to interfere. Luckily Brogan is good at groveling and Lainey is a forgiving woman. This was a great book and I am looking forward to reading the next in the series.

    Story’s okay but the writing speeds up the story too fast.
  • Way too PG

    By bookworm betty
    The story line was good, but I seek R rated with my adult romance. This was seriously pg...all the build up with no action. Also, all the early 90's references just didn't add up for this 24yo character.
  • The Rule Book

    By BookSnuggle
    The Rule Book by Jennifer Blackwood is book number one in the Rule Breakers series. This is Lainey Taylor and Brogan Starr’s story. Brogan is CEO of Starr Media where Lainey has been hired as his second-assistant. Brogan has created a rule book that he expects his employees to follow. Brogan and Lainey are definitely attracted to each other but according to the rule book a relationship is off-limits. Will they be able to follow this rule or give in to the attraction? This book is different and may not be for everyone. But, it was entertaining with some funny and very serious moments even though at time the characters did frustrate me. The intimate scenes fade out. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    Horrible. I wish I could get a refund.
  • Best book!

    By Nikki1117
    As soon as I opened it I couldn't put it down. By far my favorite book so far!
  • Rules were meant to be broken

    By Talley121416
    This was a fun read for me. Lainey was full of spunk and made things more interesting to read from her perspective. An insight on Brogans perspective would've been nice to see as the two worked through their differences and stubbornness.
