Sydney Landon first book offers a contemporary romance featuring a love story between an administrative assistant and her workaholic boss. Claire has been working hard taking care of her sick mother. She needs extra money to keep her month in her own home, so she takes on the job of jumping out of cakes at bachelor parties.
One night she jumps out of a cake for her boss's best friends party, where her boss is attending and changes her life forever.
Jason can't believe his eyes when his beautiful assistant jumps out of the cake at his best friend's party and he can't believe how jealous and protective he feels toward her. Now he can't stop thinking about Claire in a way that doesn't just have to do with boss and assistant.
I was very impressed with the writing of this first book and would enjoy reading the future books made available in this series. Both Jason and Claire are great characters and work well together as a couple. The supporting cast in the way of Claire's friend Suzy is a great source of comic relief in Claire's otherwise saddened life. It will be great reading her story next.
Claire Walters has worked for Jason Danvers as his assistant for three years and he has never thought of her as a woman until the day she jumps out of a cake at his friends bachelor party. Claire is forced to work a second job at a party planning company to support her ailing mother. She is horrified when Jason not only finds out but has a front row seat to the action. Jason is determined to know how the beautiful, sexy woman in the cake can also be his Plain Jane assistant who tries her best to blend in to the background from 8-5 every day. Now not only does Jason see her as a woman, he fully intends to give her the fairy tale ending that she deserves!
