Jillian's Job by Fran Lee


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.

Jillian’s Job is a fast, enjoyable read. The flow of the story moved relatively quickly and at certain points I’d hoped it was slowed down a little bit but overall it was a really good read.

Jillian has no social life. Her life for as long as she’s been employed by Mike Furie is to pretty much look after him. She’s his personal assistant and he uses her for everything. She’s the first person he phones, even having her cancel her vacation to help him out.

When she finally decides to quit and tell him what she really thinks about him, she wakes the next morning naked in his bed and married to him.

I have to say there were moments when I disliked Mike but he redeemed himself as his feelings for Jillian became clear during the story. At points the story is humorous and others very touching. The characters a described really well. I would have loved for the author to go into more detail of the night they got married but I’m greedy.


Verdict:

A quick, easy and enjoyable read.
