Book 1: The Boss
From best-selling author Lexy Timms comes a billionaire romance that'll make you swoon and fall in love all over again.
Jamie Connors has given up on finding a man. Despite being smart, pretty, and just slightly overweight, she's a magnet for the kind of guys that don't stay around.
Her sister's wedding is at the foreground of the family's attention. Jamie would be fine with it if her sister wasn't pressuring her to lose weight so she'll fit in the maid of honor dress, her mother would get off her case, and her ex-boyfriend wasn't about to become her brother-in-law.
Determined to step out on her own, she accepts a PA position from billionaire Alex Reid. The job includes an apartment on his property and gets her out of living in her parents' basement.
Jamie has to balance her life and somehow figure out how to manage her billionaire boss - without falling in love with him.
Book 2: The Boss Too
Jamie Connors has decided a job is more important than a boyfriend. She's landed an awesome position working as billionaire Alex Reid's personal PA. It is not meant to be a job with benefits, and yet she finds herself in Alex's bed. Despite being smart, pretty, and only slightly overweight, she doesn't believe she's attractive enough for a man like Alex.
Trying to manage work and put as much time into her sister's wedding, Jamie finds herself trying to please everyone. Her sister's wedding is at the foreground of the family's attention. Jamie would be fine if her sister wasn't so bossy, if her mother would stop nagging, and her awful ex-boyfriend wasn't about to become her brother-in-law.
Jamie has to learn to love herself again, speak up for herself, and have the confidence to go after what she wants. She also needs to prove to Alex that she's perfect for her job and for his bed.
Book 3: Who's the Boss Now
How close can you get to the fire and not get burned?
Landing the dream job, working and dating her incredibly hot boss, and at the same time gaining the confidence she's never had, Jamie doesn't think life could get any better.
She's helping to manage a multibillion-dollar company. Her family issues seem to be resolved, and even though she and Alex have to figure out the wrinkles, it looks like they'll be able to be professional at work and romantic after.
Except perfect isn't quite exactly how Jamie imagined it would be.

I've read a fair few of these billionaire romances, the plots are simple, and generally I find them to be a comforting read. The problem with this trilogy is I found both characters unlikeable. There's talk of the boss being dominant, a real strong character, that wasn't how he translated to me. I didn't find him attractive, hence the entire plot was lost on me. The female protagonist was also rather irritating, I was bored by the weight references, Lose weight, whatever, it just felt like she never really had a huge weight problem and lost a few pounds. Weight is something women can preoccupy themselves with, I get that, but I think the subject could have been handled better. All in all I found the characters shallow. I fell asleep twenty minutes before the end and don't have the inclination to go back to see how it ended.
i don't mind reading books that are a little raunchy but found that it was a different matter when it was Audible could be a bit embarrassing if you were interrupted
"LOVED THIS SERIES....."
I have listened this to twice already... love the series, the characters the story plot.. I just didn't realize that the whole series consisted of 10 books.. I ready alot.. you'll love these books..
Jaime.. she was sort of a pushover and took alot from her mother and sister, but I loved when she started sticking up for herself and what she did she did herself only not to please anyone..
Reading this box set was great but listening to it made it rise to another level. I'm very grateful that Lexy let me listen to this box set. Hannah Pralle was just great at reading this series I hope she narrates all the others in it. It needs more than 5 * can't wait to hear the others.
I love the books and the story line, but the narrator was horrible! A whiney mostly monotonous woman I spent the entire time trying to figure out who was speaking or if they were thinking.
great book hard to put it down. wish it was longer though. looking forward to hearing more books like this one.
"Scrumptious, inspirational, out the norm."
Couldn't put it down!! I love their journey. I love that she had a little weight on her and he was not a total prick. her family was horrid though.
"An interesting trilogy"
Good characters and enough intrigue to keep you guessing about the next turn of events.
"Enjoyable with some reservations "
it was enjoyable, but some reservations. I struggled to identify with the main heroine's plight of being shamed for being overweight at a size 10 as well as being so indecisive. I loved the makeup and make out sessions but the storyline was lacking depth in spots.
I alternated between reading and listening, and the narrator was a bit bland and robotic. While rhe voice was pleasant, breaks in sentences and ill-timed voice inflections were distracting.
"Great Box Set"
I'm glad this book came in a box of 3. The story didn't end in the first book and not really in the second book. Kind of in the third book. Great story of insecurities (on both sides), family conflicts, and romance. Gonna have to get the rest of the series. The narrator did a great job with the characters. The author wrote a story that was hard to put down. However, there were a lot of redundancies that made for some boring sections. Still, overall, I liked the books.
So someone is trying to sabotage the relation but we don't get to find out who did it. Book is dry with a very insecure person. The ending is just as dry.
"3rd book lost it"
The first book was a cute romance and the main character was a bit weak but relatable. Her family is awful and her prince charming boss comes to save her. By the end it was all smut and constant whining. It ended up being a terrible relationship where she constantly felt bad and the only good thing between them was sex. I was also not a fan of the use of the word rape in regards to the main character and her boss/boyfriend in the 3rd book, it was entirely inappropriate. Overall I was not impressed.
