    “he had dated more women than he had done in the past few years. But none of them had so much as dragged his thoughts away from Harriet for as long as five seconds.” Yes, he was celibate after seeing h and he didn’t have hope of having her. That’s why I love PJ’s besotted heroes. After reading SC’s Santangelli Marriage, it erased the pain of cheating hero. It might be the reason of 4,5 stars despite of foolishness of both MCs and plot. ;)

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The only reason this received the two stars is because of hero’s celibacy. Both the BFF and the h were shortchanged where their partners were concerned. The BFF’s partner demanded he cut h off to prove his love for her. He claimed at the end that he’d never have accepted his fiancée if she didn’t accept h as part of his life, except, she DIDN’T. The h had to produce a fiancé to be accepted in the bff’s life. Same with the H. He never had or would believe the h that she has NO feelings for the BFF. The only reason this received the two stars is because of hero’s celibacy.

Parents? The mouth guard? Tampons? There was no trust, and zero respect. H was slightly better than the bff’s gf. That woman needed to die.

    Read it a long time ago. I remember it made me smile so it's worth 5 stars still. A cute romance. Matt fell in love at first sight with Harriet. Harriet's the same. Matt believed that Harriet loved Ben, her best friend, and saved her virginity for Ben. His jealousy seemed so painful, at first. After a while, despite of her insistence that she didn't love Ben as a lover, his jealousy had grown and furthermore became a silly one. It's funny, tho.

    This book had shades of Katherine Hepburn & Spencer Tracy’s Desk Set and Doris Day & Rock Hudson’s Pillow Talk. It just felt like the same sort of story to me and I adore the classics so this was a treat. Harriet is in love with her boss but believes that it’s unrequited. Her boss Matt believes that she is in love with Ben, her best friend. Ben is dating Cindi who also believes that Harriet is in love with Ben. They all work together and it’s causing all sorts of problems. So Matt comes up with This book had shades of Katherine Hepburn & Spencer Tracy’s Desk Set and Doris Day & Rock Hudson’s Pillow Talk. It just felt like the same sort of story to me and I adore the classics so this was a treat. Harriet is in love with her boss but believes that it’s unrequited. Her boss Matt believes that she is in love with Ben, her best friend. Ben is dating Cindi who also believes that Harriet is in love with Ben. They all work together and it’s causing all sorts of problems. So Matt comes up with the great idea of forcing Harriet into a fake relationship so that Cindi and Ben’s relationship will not suffer. The fake relationship becomes a fake engagement when Ben accidentally finds Harriet and Matt in bed together. It was innocent, for the most part, but Ben is protective of his BFF and demands what Matt’s intentions are. There relationship is one but of misunderstanding after another. The journey to the ending was amusing and the ending was sweet. I liked this one.

    Penny Jordan at her absolute BEST! I loved the fact that finally I can read the guys perspective instead of the girls! The story line is just amazing. I love this book, and would always be one of my favourite books to read!

    3.5 stars Cute quick read. The H has loved the h since the beginning of the book and wasn't shy to admit it! The h realized she loved him in the middle of the book. Misunderstanding and stubborn insecure H caused the drama. Ending was okay. Expected kid/s at the end but there wasn't any. Oh well.. quite enjoyable. 3.5 stars Cute quick read.

    This one is a short novella to celebrate 100 years of Mills and Boon and it was evidently written in a hurry. The reason I assert this is that the author makes a number of uncharacteristic mistakes. First off, she has Matt (the boss who’s going to make the marriage arrangement) taking Harriet (the hapless unsuspecting employee) home to her country cottage down a “dark narrow lane”. However, just a few pages later, he takes her home to a “down-at-heel” area which resembles Moss Side with “yoofs” This one is a short novella to celebrate 100 years of Mills and Boon and it was evidently written in a hurry. The reason I assert this is that the author makes a number of uncharacteristic mistakes. First off, she has Matt (the boss who’s going to make the marriage arrangement) taking Harriet (the hapless unsuspecting employee) home to her country cottage down a “dark narrow lane”. However, just a few pages later, he takes her home to a “down-at-heel” area which resembles Moss Side with “yoofs” making a nuisance of themselves outside the Chinese takeaway and assaulting old ladies. Second, we have Matt leaving Harriet in a hotel suite (where he’s basically kidnapped her to) but when he arrives at his car, he finds that he only has two sets of hotel suite keys on him. With these he somehow locks the car he never managed to open because he had the wrong keys and returns to get to know Harriet better and pick up those car keys he didn’t need really because the hotel suite keys somehow fit his car. Careless errors aside (and the fact that the editor clearly didn’t bother reading the book before publication), this is a great story which made me laugh a lot. Matt, Harriet’s boss, decides that he doesn’t like the fact that Harriet’s BFF is a male, Ben; another of his employees. In fact, lots of people don’t like it and Harriet has become something of a subject for office gossip because of it. Instead of just leaving people to gossip, as people will do in offices, Matt then decides that he has to save Harriet from herself by forcing her to pretend that she’s in a relationship with him, not Ben. Harriet, instead of rushing down to the nearest legal advice she can find about harassment in the workplace, goes along with it. Before you know it, they’re in love and organising a June wedding. which leaves the office folk with something of a hole in their gossiping schedule - oh, but they could always talk about Tom who never washes up after himself, or Jean who's a bitch, or Julie, who's pinching the tea-bags. There's ALWAYS someone to gossip about, in other words, rendering Matt's heroic "saving" of Harriet somewhat pointless. It’s ridiculous nonsense in which Jordan shows her age and old-fashioned values – nobody thinks anything of having a best mate of the opposite sex these days (and probably didn’t years ago either). However, when Jordan breaks the revelation in the early stages of the book that Harriet’s best friend is Ben, she puts in “Yes, that’s right, her best friend was male!” as if it is something utterly astounding. This basically is a load of romantic twaddle, but it’s still a great bit of Jordanesque escapism. Matt, despite his (many) failings, including harrassment in the workplace, bullying and kidnapping, is still the red hot hero and Harriet is the touching vulnerable heroine. My favourite line comes at the point when Matt is becoming overwhelmed with desire for Harriet: “If he didn’t get some space between then, and soon, he would be taking her up to the penthouse with him” Well, I’ve never heard it called that before. Brilliant.

    I did not understand this book. I felt like I had been plunged into the middle of the story without a background brief. Ridiculous plot, the most ridiculous I have ever read. At every page I felt the urge to reach down and slap the annoying hero, the even more annoying heroine and the frankly stupid cast of characters. Do not read this book.

    A really lovely story. A very formulaic plot as all romances in this genre are but she is one of my favourite romance novelists and well worth reading.

His girlfriend has been jealous of their friendship. Her boss has wanted her for his own. The plot line is good. But the male hero's jealous tendency is questionable. If he would listen to her and believe the one he loves and not the gossip things wouldn't have gone so wrong.

    Plot, Storyline and Ending sooo dismal! This storyline could have gone somewhere if the writer understood how. I’ve been a Harlequin reader over 25 years and this has got to be top 5 of the worst ever. There was no chemistry between H and h. They were in love and had never spoken to each other!!! And then all of a sudden boop, engaged because she looks pitiful. Omg. I can’t. This was a really bad one. I read it through the end just wanting to find something good in it. Any positive but there’s no Plot, Storyline and Ending sooo dismal! This storyline could have gone somewhere if the writer understood how.

    Maybe I'm getting bored with romance novels. I liked the characters in The Boss's Marriage Arrangement but the set up was ridiculous. The story got lost in the focus on sex. This is more a novella than a full novel, perhaps an hour read. Maybe I'm getting bored with romance novels. I liked the characters in The Boss's Marriage Arrangement but the set up was ridiculous.
