Jade
The job is exactly what I want. I know I can do it well. I'm excited until the woman at the agency says there's no point applying since, the essential but unspoken qualifications are being either married, or middle-aged, and I'm neither.
Apparently, Luke Remington, the CEO is a workaholic who's sick of having his young secretaries fall in love with him and lose concentration on their job. Turns out unattractiveness is considered a bonus since he didn't want to be distracted either.
But I'm not giving up that easy. I convince the agency to send me for the interview. I ditch my cosmetics, invest in a cheap wedding ring, put on some dowdy clothes. For good measure, I add a pair of ugly glasses, pull my hair into an unflattering bun, and voila. Married and unattractive.
Yeah, I got the job, Oh, and guess what? I now understand why the other secretaries couldn't concentrate on this job.
Luke Remington...the hottest CEO alive
Luke
My new secretary is super-efficient, but even better she doesn’t fawn over me. I guess she could be attractive, but she doesn’t make much of herself. The woman is still wearing coke bottle glasses and her fashion choices might look better as curtains. Well, not my problem.
We’ve just arrived for a conference in Thailand. If I’m really hot I could potentially cut a couple of big ticket deals at the same time. Jade made all the arrangements, and so far, so good. Then I hear a scream coming from the room next door. Her room.
I rush in through the connecting door and she’s in the bathroom. Yeah, I see the massive spider. But that's the least of my problems. Jade is in a towel. Without her thick glasses. Or her granny clothes. And her long thick hair is loose and tumbling down her silky back.
Damn, the agency screwed up after all.
I’m so f**ked!

sexy office romance

by Valeen

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

The CEO & I is a sexy office romance. Jade was warned by her hiring agency that Luke Remington only hires unattractive and/or married women. So, she disguises herself in baggy, unattractive clothing, no makeup, thick glasses and pretends to be married, so she can land the PA job that she desperately needs. It works and she's been working for him for a few months when they end up going on a business trip to Bangkok. It's there where things will change for them, where Luke finally acts upon the seemingly out of nowhere attraction he's been feeling for her.

I liked CEO & I, but I wish it had been a little longer and we got to see more of their relationship. It felt a little rushed because it was a bit too short. Still, though, it's sexy and sweet and Luke and Jade have great chemistry. If you like office romances, CEO & I is the story for you!

Hot and fast.. what more could you want?!

by PeytonGG

This book starts fast! The couple already knows each other and have been working together for the last couple of months. There is a little backstory so you don't feel like you are missing anything and bam! The action is on and it hits you right in the mouth. It is hot and intense and you want nothing more then this couple to make it.. but then there is always baggage and I admit I love some heart ache in my book so I was very pleased even as my eyes grew misty. This is a must read for anyone that loves steamy hot scenes, a little romance and some heartbreak.

I enjoyed reading this book. A business trip turned romantic. Luke tried so hard to fight his attraction for his PA, Jade. The sex scenes were HOT. A must read. Short and steamy....

Excellent book.

by Anonymous

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Well....that escalated quickly. Jade and Luke are on a business trip to Thailand. Luke thinks that Jade is an unattractive, dowdy woman...only to be surprised later that she's really beautiful. Jade and Luke and their off the charts chemistry...way too hot. They bring out the best in each other. I really liked this book.

Luke Is A Winner

by rainbowtourist

I voluntarily received an arc of this book via Booksprout for a fair and honest review. If there's one thing that Luke Remington doesn't suffer from it would be low self esteem. He knows he's hot and toss in his bank balance and women are tripping over themselves to get to him. Not wanting to be tempted into the old boss and his PA sex scenario, he hires, frumpy, married Jade Emerson. There's no way any romance can come of this. He considers himself waaaaay out of her league. They have just arrived in Bangkok and Luke is already irritated because Jade had some problem getting thru customs. Thank God Jade is some other man's problem. It turns out Luke Remington's reputation precedes him. He doesn't hire attractive, unmarried assistants. He finds out after two months of working with her that Jade IS attractive and ISN'T married. After one business dinner their first night in Bangkok lands Luke and Jade in bed. Luke swears he doesn't want to become some cliche of a boss who sleeps with his assistant but he also doesn't want to stop sleeping with his assistant. As in never,

Fast paced - steaming hot

by Bookreview.dk

A very well written story and an unsuspected enjoyable plot. The main characters are Luke and Jade. Luke is a workaholic and seeking a new secretary. Jade wants to work in Lukes firm and dresses down to get the job. I like the fun and laughs you get during the story. It is an amazing read and I just love the writing style of River Laurent. It is a very fast paced story and an easy read. There is a great banter, hot chemistry and steaming scenes between the characters. The attraction is over the top. It caught me from the first to last chapter. I like that it is written in dual POV because that gives the reader the possibility to get to know both the thoughts and feelings of the main characters. It has a emotional rollercoaster from heartbreak, drama, lust, passion, dark pasts and twists that are unsuspected. A very recommendable story.

You can never hide who you truly are!

by Lisa99

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. To get the job and prove that she is the best person for the job Jade has to downplay her appearance to her extremely attractive boss Luke who is tired of his secretaries falling in love with him and refuses to be a stero-type. Even though Luke doesn't understand it ...... there is some different about Jade even if she is unattractive. Then on a business trip Luke finds out how Jade has been pulling the wool or more like the oversized pants suits and coke bottle glasses over his eyes! Look who falls for the girl....not the girly, but can Luke get over past pain to be happy. I definitely recommend this book!!!!

I LOVED this book. I won't give the synopsis since you can read the blurb and others give more detail but I definitely recommend!
The chemistry, sexiness, sweetness, and twists in plot kept things very interesting.
I can't wait to read more by this author. I will probably end up buying any future books she writes!
