Review of The Personal Assistant by RaeLynn Blue with a giveaway


BLURB:

In the high stakes world of popular music, stardom and fame are commonplace. Superstar, Morgan Thomas, is a commodity to be bought and sold. Tyrone is her assistant, charged with making her insane life--manageable. But once Morgan goes missing, can Tyrone summon the courage to find her and take their relationship from platonic to passionate?

Excerpt (PG-13)

Tyrone scanned the menu. It was dinnertime and the luxury hotel’s special was filet mignon with crab sauce. Morgan was allergic to seafood, so that was definitely out. He kept his cell phone in his right hand, just in case she called down to him.

God, I’m so trained! Sitting here with the freakin’ phone in my hand, waiting for my precious pop princess to dial down to her lowly servant.

He silently read the entrees on the menu, but mentally, he pictured Morgan. Tall as any model with a smooth complexion that resembled creamy mocha, she stood out in a crowd. Her mixed African blood had produced a stunning beauty. Brown, natural curly hair flowed down to her shoulders and blue eyes lit up her face. When she smiled, the whiteness of her teeth made her thick, bee stung lips look even pinker. She hated her lips. He couldn’t figure out why; her smile illuminated the dreariest of places.

At least to him.

She wasn't skinny like most women in the entertainment industry. With a long waist, full hips and ass, she put anyone of those cookie-cutter blondes of Beverly Hills to shame. Her ethnicity made her stand out; her beauty made her radiant

And she shined for him like the sun on a crisp, clear summer day.

He found her enchanting, and had since they were in high school. Yet, when she flirted with him—like the incident in the limo—it made him angry. She was simply toying with him, just like she did with many other men.

He didn’t want to be any other man to her; he wanted to be the man—her man.

My Thoughts:

I had a hard time getting into this book. It wasn't that there was anything wrong with the book. It was a decent read.

I'm not sure, but I wonder if it was because the woman was the popular, rich person in the book instead of the man. I may just need a paranormal fix. All of these steamy books are starting to blend together for me. While this was good, for whatever reason, I just wasn't blown away. :-(

This book had romance and steam galore. ;-)


I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I thought The Personal Assistant was a decent read but not exceptional.

  3. As a reviewer I hate leaving bad feedback but it's apart of the job, so I feel for you. However, as a reader seeing bad feedback doesn't put me off, I sometimes like to see what everyone thinks and see if I feel the same. I still plan on reading it, sounds like something I would love. Great honest review! Donna @BookPforLife

    1. I'm glad that my opinion didn't put you off. That is never my intention (well almost never!)

      I hate being negative too, but I don't really think this was negative. I didn't say it was bad just not amazing to me. I'm sure there are lots of people who will give it 5 stars. I just couldn't really get into it. That's on me not the book. You know what I mean?

  4. It happens sometimes where you just can't get into them. I had that recently where the main female I just couldn't connect with. She was the rich socialite and it wasn't really for me. But not a bad read. I'll add this to my maybe list then. :) Thanks hun!

  6. Your review was simply honest not negative, we can't all fall in love with each book it doesn't mean the book is bad or not the perfect one for someone else and you really did well to explain your feeling so need to feel bad or worry i'm sure you haven't put the readers off with this one

    it's strange how we can be troubled when the table are turned off ^^ we are so often seeing teh man being rich that we are not sure how to react when it's the female^^
    i'm in a reading slump so honestly this one dioesn't tempt me but mostly because it's comtemporary... it's taking a lot to make those catch my interest though even good paranormal at teh moment just wait on my table^^

    1. :-) I'm in a small slump too. Partially it is because I'm trying to get all of the reviews completed before camp so that I can read books that I purchased and have been waiting patiently for my attention.
