Jillian's Job

Jillian has the perfect job. Great benefits and pay, access to her bosses homes and private jet, and a gorgeous boss to boot. Too bad he doesn’t know she’s a woman, and treats her like she’s not entitled to a life. After he interrupts her plans for her birthday with her family, she’s had it. She’s quitting, and this time she means it.

Determined to go out with style, she answers his call for rescue by spending $350,000 of his money to outfit herself for a party he demands her presence at. She accomplishes more than she expected though. When she wakes up the next morning, she’s in bed with her boss, and appears to have married him. And how did that happen?

This reminded me a little of that movie with Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant. Personally, Mike Furie was obnoxious and I don’t care how cute he was, I would have shot him years ago. Jillian was a little wishy-washy for my tastes, but when it mattered she came out swinging. Regardless, I inhaled this story because it appealed on many levels. With similarities to a few fairy tales of princesses and such, I loved it. The sex was plentiful and enviable, and my heart went pitter-patter at the end. A little predictable, but a great escape.

Book Blurb for Jillian's Job

What good is a dream income, access to a private jet, all the perks that go with being Mike Furie’s überproficient personal assistant, if Jillian has no life? She wants a life with a man in it. And staying with overbearing, totally sexy, self-serving bachelor Mike will lead nowhere.

A trip to Aspen to “rescue” Mike from the clutches of the latest woman seeking to sink her claws into him, an excess of champagne to fortify her, and she tells him what she thinks of his high-handed tactics. She’s quitting. Again.

So how the hell did she end up in bed with him in a Tahoe honeymoon suite, naked? Why can’t she recall how her signature got on that marriage license?

Mike discovers talents he never knew Jill possessed. Now he has her right where he wants her. And he wants her again…and again. In his bed and under him. But it’s not all about the lust, and if he gets his way, Jillian won’t be leaving his side or his bed—ever.
