    1.5 Noooo no no no!I couldn't even get to 30% of the read, it was awful!The story was from two different POVs, but they were exactly the same (and the guy sounded so damn feminine, it was annoying!).The writing was bad (and I don't mean just the writing style...). Grammar, tenses (at one point the narrator's voice was in the present, then it changed to past, then back to present)... grammar! Proofread, people! And gah, I didn't like the characters. They were so fucking annoying! I couldn't even try too hard to finish the book.

    3.25/5This book had a lot of potential but somehow it just didn’t work out the way I hoped it would. There was nothing wrong with the plot per se. In fact, it was fairly good, but the lack of heart-wrenching drama made it too bland for my liking. Besides, I had a hard time connecting with two main characters. It seemed like most of the characters in this book were emotionally sensitive. They got overwhelmed easily. Women cried. Men cried. Tears were everywhere! I don't know... It just wasn’t what I expected. However, I really enjoyed how the book revolved around the bonds of love among the family members as much as the romance between Henry and Claire. It was a good and fun read overall.

    4 Short but Sweet Stars!!!When I started reading this I was expecting a smutty read, boy was I wrong!Claire is a single mother to her two year old son Ethan. On her first day as Henry Beck's personal assistant she realizes she may be in trouble. Why you ask? Well Henry is the hottest boss Claire has ever had.Henry is immediately attracted to Claire, but won't pursue her because she is an employee. But fate has other plans and they are thrown together at every available moment, the last straw is when Henry runs into Claire while she's on a date and he realizes that he can't ignore he's feelings for her anymore.This book was sooo cute, Henry and Ethan Claire's son were so adorable together! And even though the book is quite short, Henry and Claire's relationship progressed quite normally nothing happened overnight. And what can I say I love epilogues because they give that extra detail to a happy ending!Henry (he did this thing with his hair when he got irritated)ClaireAnd finally I had to add a picture of Ethan

    First read 3rd April 2014 - 4****Read 4th June 2015 - 5*****So usually I try and avoid office roms and office trilogies as they all seem to be along the same plot lines. This book was lovely to read and I loved every moment of it. 4 Stars for the 1st Beck Brother.Claire is a single Mom after the father of her child did a runner when he found out that there was a bun in the oven. Claire is finally getting back to work and starts her new job in an Advertising agency as Henry Becks personal assistant. Claire thinks that Henry will be an old fart and not an Adonis.Henry Beck doesn't really have enough time for relationships as his work consumes his life. That is until he meets Claire and he was hoping that she was an old bag with bad breath. Claire is a bombshell. Obviously they get along and their relationship develops but neither want to act on it due to work. Claire's son Ethan was adorable especially when he couldn't pronounce his "r" Henwee, Henwee. There was a lot going on in this book and I was enjoying at every moment. We got introduced to the other Beck Brothers (Sebastian, Quinn and Christian) who are all hot. Henry's mother was very overbearing but Sebastian soon rips her a new one. Can't wait for the next books in the series.

    This book was so sweet I'm surprised I don't have a mouth full of cavaties after reading it... it was cute..... but the WHOLE book was cute.. we had cute after cute after cute and happy happy happy.. and as sweet and cute as it was it was a nice surprise to have some pretty hot sexy times. There was ZERO angst in this book, ZERO drama (except a bit from his mom).. it was pretty much all happy from chapter one till the end. No misunderstandings or nothing.. just over the top sweet filled book. I've definitly had my fill of sweetness now to last me a good long while. Read this when you're done with a mindf*ck book or something really angsty and you just want something super sweet with just the right amount of steam and a sweet HEA.

    I could not get passed the poor writing to enjoy this story. The incorrect use of had/has and the way the author used "Claire" in every single sentence. No "she" or "her" or anything else in sight. Sentence structure. Paragraph building. Proper use of tenses. All wrong. I ended up flouncing this story and have no idea why in the hell so many people are giving this story such high marks. I cannot be expected to get in to a book and take it seriously if I can't even get through the first chapter. When an author writes poorly and the editing, if there was any, is this bad - all it does is make the character seem, for lack of a better word, uneducated.

    3.5 stars[image error]I really enjoyed this story. I think readers that are looking for a series that showcases a book per hot brother of the same family should give this a go. The book was short but really realistic and very sweet! It seems that each brother will hold something different for a reader and I’ll definitely continue with this series.I really loved the main character Claire a single mom who falls in love with her new boss Henry Beck. Claire was completely relatable. She never ran and was upfront while being an all out nice gal!Henry and Claire’s relationship was well paced and their banter was very fun. Scenes with Claire’s son Ethan were very heartwarming. I found Henry to be pretty sexy especially when he wore his glasses!! Obstacle wise, Henry’s mom’s a pain but she comes around as well as a scare or two. (view spoiler)[The only scene that bothered me was the pediatrician who used the date rape drug on Claire. He should have been reported. (hide spoiler)] Overall, the story wasn’t over dramatic just a good read.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    2.75 RATING- I know I'm in the minority on this one but just didn't really care for it. The writing just felt a bit amateurish to me. I probably won't read more in this series because of that. Too bad since I have several of the books I picked up as freebies.

    This romance was a breath of fresh air, steering away from the "standard" manwhore hero formula... Offering a different type of "Hero" that I could truly respect and fall in love with! It is so refreshing to read a "Hero" with different qualities that made him evenly more appealing...YES Ladies! "a real man" can be measured in so many different ways..not necessary by how many women he slept with, but simply being a man of solace for the woman of his heart when she needed him the most...Finally a romance based on deeper foundations than just lust!The heroine on the other hand was very sweet and endearing....especially her unassuming beauty and is rare for me to read a heroine with this type of quality. It adds sincerity and vulnerability to her character! I could believe the love both character shared was "real" as the author allow it to grow from a simple friendship to something more meaningful and the bond between the hero and heroin's 2 year old son was really sweet and moving! I will definitely look for other books of this author

    This was me the whole time Henry & ClaireClaire is a single mother of a cute little 2 year old boy. She gets a job as a personal assistant to a CEO of an advertising company. She expects her boss to be an elderly man, but what she gets....oh my...They are instantly attracted to each other, but they would never cross that line, it would not be good for business.But...they can't help becoming friends...and then moreClaire fell hard and fast, and so did I... I couldn't help it!!Henry?There was just this little itty bitty problem they hadBut sometimes life shakes you a little bit and you realize what is truly important..When I saw that there were POV-sThe only thing I don't quite understand is the 3-way POV. Henry's, Claire's and then Sebastian's (Henry's brother)But I guess I got to understand him a little better and I'm dying to finish his story right now, he's gonna be a tough cookie..Otherwise, such a sweet story, they were adorable. I was so happy and grinning like a lunatic all day after reading this :D

    Reviewed by: OrianaSo let me start this review by saying I read the whole book in one sitting. I could not put it down. First let me tell you about Henry he's 34, a CEO and beautiful. The man is everything! He's a complete sweetheart badass boss. And I love him! Haha. Now onto Claire she's 25 a single mom and a beauty. She's amazing with her son and an overall sweet person. The story is a bit rushed. I would've loved more details but at the same time I love the details I got. I love the connection between Claire and Henry. I adore that Henry loves Ethan too, Claire's 2 year old son. Henry is a man of business he doesn't have time for anything else. But when Claire starts to befriend him and their boss/assistant relationship becomes more. He starts to realize that maybe he's missing out on life and what life has to offer. But when a tragic accident happens Henry realizes life is too short to miss out on the important things. But obstacles, people, and life will get in the way. But in the end love can conquer all right? This was a great read seriously. I love that it introduces the other brothers in the series and I love the relationship between them all. I did have a problem with the third person narration but I got over that quickly. Aside from that and some very few grammatical errors I love this. For me it was a 5 star read. I'm off to start Sebastian next. Henry's dreamy brother/best friend.

    Overall rating: 5 "Darlin'" stars!!!Triggers:Cheating: (view spoiler)[ no(hide spoiler)]Sex with om/ow: (view spoiler)[ nope(hide spoiler)]Love triangle: (view spoiler)[ no(hide spoiler)]HEA: (view spoiler)[ YES(hide spoiler)]My review:This book was just what I needed!!! It was such a sweet romance! You have Claire who is the sweetest hero and best mother. She is starting a new job. When she meets her new boss though, instead of a fat and elderly stuck up man, she meets Henry. Henry is taken with her immediately. I didn't feel this was insta-love. It started out with friendship and grew into more. I loved how the author made time go by with these two just being friends, but made it go by quickly. I also loved the fact that the hero was COMPLETELY faithful 100% once he meets the heroine. In fact, we know he just got out of a bad relationship and we do not see ANY intimate scenes with him and other women. He also doesn't have that man whore vibe at ALL. Which is quite refreshing!!! And little Ethan - goodness, he was adorable!! Henry was so great with him too. If you are looking for a sweet romance with very little angst, if any, this is your story!!! No bullcrap drama in this story :)I am very excited AND anxious to read Sebatian's story. After what happened to him in this book, I feel SO terrible for him. He was a great friend/big brother to Claire. I only hope we don't have to read about him whoring it up :/

    I really enjoyed this! I picked this up as a freebie on Amazon and what a little treat. Yes the sexy hunky CEO who falls in love with his PA has been done before but... I really enjoyed Henry in the fact that they didn't rush in and start humping right on his desk on day one. It's a slow build up. There are things that happen that make them realise their feelings for each other and bring them together. I loved the scene when Sebastian and Henry save her from the date from hell Omg something is wrong with me cause I was like ohhh yes get it on, do it!.... hahhaha so wrong. I love love love books with children in them and Ethan omg how cute is Ethan!! I loved all the brothers they were great! I couldn't believe his mother!!! Seriously, was pretty shocking considering how sweet her sons were.. but all is well in the end! Can NOT wait to get my hands on Sebastian. Need it now! +++ 4 Stars +++

    Not for me. Never could get into it. Fun fact, after I did a search out of curiosity I found out that the word than was used about one time. Subsequently then was used a total of 278 times. So obviously one word was more popular then the other ;)

    It's a good start of a series, 4 stars from me! This is a classic love story, the one between the boss and the secretary. It's also borderline cliche as well, because we all know how this going to end, and how the twists in it are predictable. Yet, I found myself finishing it, and how comforting, reading this book. Henry is our usual CEO type Hero; workaholic, cold-ish, and in need of the warmth of love but didn't realize it. Until he met Claire. Claire, is our usual heroine; strong, kind hearted, single mother of adorable two year old boy, and have a lot of love to give, especially to Henry, her boss. They found their way to each other, obviously. And they live happily ever after. There are parts that kind of uncomfortable to me, like Henry's mother, and the style of writing that somehow awkward, unlike Large's writing in Hammer and Nails, the first book of her that I read previously. Maybe it's because this series is her older work? I don't know. Plus I'm a bit sad seeing how Sebastian treated his mom. I mean, sure she's demanding, selfish, and all that, but.. He's plain rude toward her. Ugh. So yeah overall I loved this book, again it's a good start of I think it's going to be a good series. Look forward to read Sebastian's story!

    4.5 stars. I truly enjoy a very romantical book. It was a very great reading. Loved the Characters of Henry and his brothers, as well as Claire, this couple was a sweet wanting each other but denying themselves because of the work environment; Scared that there will be consequences, but finally they started to be friends at all cost. Oh Ethan, what a cutie putie, adorable little 2 years; This book was also very intense with the Mother, (Anne) who wanted know female was good for her sons. Sebastian was definitely my hero, how he put his mother in place. Even though he felt guilty of doing it but momma was not listening to her husband. Oh I almost cried, when they couldn't find Henry in the plane crash, I was going to get pissed if the book end it like that. But very lovely ending. Kudos to Ms. Large, first time newbie with reading one of your books. Bravo!

    This was a nice sweet story. Henry and Claire were both likable characters -- they were kind and treated each other with care and affection. The only reason no 5 star is that it was a nice, sweet, simple story, but just not memorable enough for 5 star. I definitely recommend it for people who like sweet romances!I probably won't read the next story, only because the hero of that, Sebastian, has basically been participating in endless one-night stands for months and months. I don't like that type of guy -- no matter the reason for his inability to enter a real relationship. Just gives me the heebie-jeebies.

    I expected this book to be just sex and nothing else.. But it was such a sweet story! I love these brothers.Henry is a sweetie! And my word are they a bunch of emotional men. But it was a nice change from the normal macho male personality.Definitely reading the other ones.

    Normally I don't like books where the main female character has kids but Ethan is just to damn cute and I fell in love with him just as much as I did Claire and Henry. Henry in the beginning is all business, "I will email you my schedule. Get settled in, and I'll come back for you at lunch. We'll go to my favorite deli. Bring a copy of my schedule with you and we'll go over it while we eat," Henry said. He left, closing her office door behind him." And of course Claire's good lookin' body doesn't go unnoticed, "Claire's breasts filled out her purple silk blouse nicely. From what he could tell, she had to be a D-cup. Henry was absolutely a breast man. He was also an a** man. He'd love to give Claire's a** a swat. She had a fine a**. Henry shifted in his chair, his pants becoming uncomfortably tight in the groin area." When it comes to paying for expenses Henry will take no bull and will take charge, "Henry paid for lunch. Claire protested but he would hear none of that. He always paid for lunch, and everything else for that matter. Claire would learn." Sometimes you have to put the pain in the back of your mind to get to the good stuff, "Henry shook his head and thrust his fingers into her hair, cupping her head. "I don't give a s*** about my ribs," he said roughly before lowering his mouth to hers."

    I liked the basic principles behind this book. It could have been great if more emotions were adapted and more insight into the basics of the main characters were portrayed before they acted upon their instincts leaving the reader wondering what happened and why it happened.Another thing I wished that would have been added was drama. I wanted a little more. The author had the base line to add drama (hello, he's boinking his personal assistant and the heroine had a baby daddy who didn't want to be part of their lives who could have turned up and caused lots and lots of drama).Don't get me started on the grammatical issues. There, their, and they're are used whenever it floats the boat of the author as well as then and than. And boy, all the speaking lines where quotes are used were used incorrectly throughout the entire novel and most of the time a comma was used after a period. If the author got someone to clean up her story it would definitely be a four star novel - if she added more drama and more depth it would be a five star. Right now, it's a 2.5 for me but I rounded it up to a 3.If you can overlook grammatical issues, this novel was a light and easy read. It was fun and flirty but the minute you start noticing the incorrect usage of words that's all you'll focus on.

    I love, love this book! The story is about a CEO, Henry Beck, who fall in love with his personal assistant, Claire. Claire also has a son, named Ethan, who bonds with Henry as if Ethan was his own son. The bond between these three characters is unimaginable. It is easy to fall for Henry when you just see how amazing he is towards Claire and Ethan. I kinda wish there were more love scenes between them but they kinda got together a little after half the book so I guess I get why there weren't more. This book was filled with so much love, emotion, and drama to entertain the masses. The best and worst part of the story for me was the end. It was the best part of the story because it was packed with emotional scenes. I could not stop crying over their Christmas Eve and the epilogue. However, it was the worst part of the story because it was the end. :( I just wished this story was longer. I wanted to read more about Henry and Claire but I hope we get to read more about them in the other books. I also loved how the story provided a great background for the other characters in the story, especially Henry's brother, Sebastian. The Beck brothers just seem completely irresistible. Cannot wait to read Sebastian's story!

    5 Super Sweet Stars!Just finished it and I have to say I really loved it. Such a cute story. I mean who doesn't like the Guy - Baby thing? Because I love it! A bit classical story where the guy is tough and stiff and doesn't believe so much in all that love and family thing till he meets her. Plus 4 hot brothers? Yeah, I liked it. I would like a bit different end though. I liked the happy ending of course but maybe the writer could give a bit more information or something.My Henry. [image error]

    MehAverage quick read, could do with someone going through an doing a more thorough edit.Henry has a lot of potential to be a kick ass alpha but just didn't quite get there I'm afraid. This is my second reread of this book, and was ok to pass some time.
