She quit after her boss hero didn’t stand up for her when his gold-digging fiancée spilled coffee on her. Heroine has had a mysterious crush on her chain-smoking, womanizing, rude boss for three years. The heroine is now working as a “detective” in the office featured in The Case of the Mesmerizing Boss. The hero often uses this agency to find his mother who goes on adventures when she gets bored. Hero needs his secretary back because it’s taken three women to replace her. Heroine is done with the hero treating her like crap and she gets in several digs at the OW as well. So far so good. This heroine seems to have a backbone. Until the hero’s mother escapes to San Antonio and the hero’s cousin, Emmett. Yes, it’s the same EmmettLong, Tall Texans: Emmett, Regan Burke: Emmett\Regan\Burke from that book. I hated him then and I hate him now. He’s a horrible father and human being. And in this story he and his trio of delinquent children are used as comedy and as a foil to the hero. Since both Emmett and this hero are tools, I didn’t see a lot of contrast, to be honest. And I hated seeing the heroine of Emmett’s book being a sniveling doormat *again.* These are horrible, horrible characters. But back to our H/h. Heroine had a backbone until the hero saw her topless and did some breast magic while she was trying to get coffee stains out her blouse. Hero barges in on her in the bathroom. (Romantic – yes?) And let me make this clear: he’s sucking on her nipples while he’s engaged to the OW. Because some dim part of his mind knows that he’s cheating, he makes himself feel better by being cruel: He tells the heroine the OW is better looking then her. That he knows she has a crush on him. That he could take her virginity anytime. He continues to put the moves on the heroine while he’s engaged. He won’t break the engagement because he can’t admit he’s wrong. Once the OW gives him back his ring, then he seduces the heroine (no condom) and offers marriage since she might be pregnant. His mother goes missing again and heroine finds her in the hospital having tests for cancer. Heroine promises not to tell hero until the results are known. Hero finds out and breaks their engagement because heroine was loyal to his mother and not to him. Heroine mopes around for awhile until hero finally realizes he loves the heroine and takes her back. Gross. He was a cheater and hypocrite and his family was full of psychos. The bathroom seduction was tacky. Telling heroine she was not pretty was cruel. There wasn’t one redeeming thing about this hero. Run away heroine. Run away. Diana Palmer checklist: Hairy chest check Breast Description up tilted nipples (!?) Cigarettes hero has gone from cigarettes to cigarillos Alcohol no Town Descriptions Takes place in Houston. There are other characters who will get their own stories (Emmett – gag) Gardenia Scent No. Who could smell anything over all that smoke? LOL detail Heroine advises the new secretary to find the “smokeless ashtrays” Cutesy detail So many, cringey attempts at humor. (a) the three horrible children of Emmett’s (b) Emmett’s many marriage proposals (c) three secretaries to replace the heroine (d) the hero’s runaway mother who has been arrested as well as placed in a mental institution during her adventures. Hilarious! DP hobbyhorse Society has no values because art and culture are disappearing. Kids play with plastic toys, have VHS tapes and video games. (Diana Palmer, let me introduce you to the internet)

    This was the last of the series and by far the worst of it. I can't even say it was good cause only the sex was ok. First time I ever read about them using a condom was in this book. It can't really get on board with his attitude towards her. He calls her ugly and treats her like a doormat and she takes it all in like some kind of virgin sacrifice. His only concern was for himself and that's not what love is about. He is arrogant and vain and I did not believe him when after he keeps blaming her This was the last of the series and by far the worst of it. I can't even say it was good cause only the sex was ok.

Sorry but I did not feel it. Just the sex was ok.

    I have a love/hate relationship with Diana Palmer. This one falls under the "meh" category. Kit was Logan's secretary for 3 years and has loved him just as long. Logan never noticed her "that way" and got engaged to a gold digger because he wanted to get into the gold digger's pants. Kit quits. Logan's beside himself. Kit has a bit of backbone in her new career as girl-detective. She goes after bail jumpers (shades of Stephanie Plum minus the car trouble) and stands up for herself to Logan.

Things happen to be include safe pre-marital sex. It'd be something if one day a Diana Palmer heroine gets schooled in ways to have mutual fun that don't involve penetration or suckling breasts (holy cow, did I just write that?). At least this one acknowledges that people can and do have sex without getting pregnant or catching a social disease. There's the most minor of misunderstandings which happens and is resolved in a matter of about 3 pages. At some point when I'm in the mood for more patented DP shenanigans I'll read Emmett's story. Which shouldn't be confused with Ethan's story. Or Evan's story.

    Logan Deverall has been blind to the fact that his secretary Kit has had a huge crush on him for three years. He is bad tempered, successful, relentless, but loves his mother who drives him crazy with her antics. Logan fires Kit due to a woman. Kit is hired by the Lassiter detective agency and well thinks go wonky from there. She is sent out to find Logan's mom who has disappeared again. Kit finds her on Logan's cousin's ranch.

Kit is hired by the Lassiter detective agency and well thinks go wonky from there. She is sent out to find Logan's mom who has disappeared again. Kit finds her on Logan's cousin's ranch. Emmett has three very undisciplined children who provide comic relief. They are obnoxious and have no discipline, they even call their father Emmett. He tries to marry Kit but Kit only has eyes for Logan. Will Logan wake up in time before he loses her? This is a quick fast read and follows Ms. Palmer's typical format. I will say that I didn't find Logan to be as much of a jerk as her other heroes. Kit has spunk but she is very green. She can handle Logan in a temper and doesn't back down from him.

    Kit & Logan I am a big fan of Diana Palmer but I must say this book is not one of her best work. This is another story about unrequired love but the H was quite brutal towards the h and treats her super bad and she just takes it. This could have been more accepted years ago ( this is a old book) but it doesn't fly well this days. We need and demand stronger women that won't take that kind of thing any more.

    Terrific Logan and Kit hit sparks off each other as she worked as his assistant for three years. He had a terrible temper and she did too. Loving him as she did made her vulnerable as she tried to warn him about his gold digging fiancee. So he fired her and then kept kidnapping her to try to get her to work for him again. Passion and love won the day.

    Yes, I know that there are many who proclaim that Palmer is formulaic and simple romantic fluff at best; and they are probably correct in their assumptions. But there are some authors whom readers will pick up; regardless and sometimes, in spite of the reviews, Diana Palmer is one of them. Some can and do go into great detail of why readers choose her books and I've even tried to explain it to myself.

    Another crazy loveable family, a female who's boss seems to get under her skin and a zany bunch of secretary replacements that are trying to fill her role but have between all three of them the ideal skills...... Plus who doesn't love a matchmaking mother who takes off and has to be tracked. Light and funny and another of her novels that I have read and enjoyed.

    Logan's driving me crazy. He's annoying and self-centered yet he won't let Kit go. I wonder why Kit loves him so when he treated her like piece of klunk in the first place. But then again love is blind indeed. As much as I enjoyed this book, I still don't fancy Logan's mean attitude. Three stars. Logan's driving me crazy.

    0.5 extremely disappointed with this book! this story is just nonsense. this story has nothing special to offer. the dialogues were stupid and nonsense as if the author wrote this when she was drunk. the girl's gonna push him away but with just a crook of his finger she'll come running back to him. stupid female. stupid male. 0.5 extremely disappointed with this book! this story is just nonsense. this story has nothing special to offer. the dialogues were stupid and nonsense as if the author wrote this when she was drunk. the girl's gonna push him away but with just a crook of his finger she'll come running back to him. stupid female. stupid male.
