USA TODAY bestselling author Janice Maynard asks:

Can a boss on a royal mission mix business with pleasure?

Diplomat Alex Ramon's Miami mission is on the rocks. Convincing the exiled Montoros to give up their American life and return to Alma's throne has become personal. Not only is his trusted aide Maria Ferro flirting with a potential prince, but Alex is actually jealous! So jealous, he might sabotage his goals so he can take Maria to his bed…a prize more tempting than any commission from the crown.

But Alex doesn't know that Maria has a longtime crush of her own—and it isn't on the playboy prince…

My Thoughts:

Romances in the workplace are always a touchy subject... and often considered taboo. But for some reason, I love reading them. It's always so much fun watching the internal struggle, and all the attempts to hide the affections that end up failing--which is exactly what this book is full of!

Alex and Maria have not only a working relationship, but also a friendship. They both know they shouldn't cross the coworkers to lovers line, but neither one can hold back. It's impossible to resist now that they're in such close quarters. But when Alex is convinced that Maria is interested in someone else, things start to change. She isn't, and she tells him she isn't, but he doesn't want to believe her, which causes her to get very upset. Now Alex has to figure out how to win her back, despite all her efforts to push him away.

Minding Her Boss's Business is a cute little romp. I love the dynamic between coworkers, employers/employees, and bosses/assistants. And Alex and Maria are great for it--there's genuine caring and feelings, as friends and as more than friends. Janice Maynard doesn't disappoint!

  1. I met my husband through work and let me tell you, work place romances suck mostly because of other people's reactions. It was like walking on egg shells. Anywho, fictional work place romances are probably much better.

    1. Oh I know! People at work giving the side eye and whispering in each other's ears as you walk by. SMH. Some people need to grow up. I think the fictional ones are slightly less catty. :P
