Darian King has never met a challenge he couldn’t handle. Running a billion-dollar corporation? Piece of cake. Hostile takeovers? A walk in the park. But when his little sister begs him to plan her wedding, Darian finds himself less than prepared for the task. Luckily, he knows just who to ask for help.
Allison Reed wants nothing more than to leave King Enterprises behind. Being the personal assistant to a man like Darian is a 24/7 job. Asking her to help plan a wedding is simply the icing on the stress-filled cake but to leave she needs a glowing reference and will do anything to get it. Even plan a wedding with the man of her dreams.
Stepping outside the office has unexpected consequences. Darian doesn’t believe in relationships, yet he’s starting to see Allison in a whole new light. But he doesn’t know her secret, and she fears that by the time the vows are exchanged, she won’t just be leaving her job behind but her heart as well.
Fun and Light
Darian King is a self-made billionaire who raised his sister after their parents died when he was just 18. Darian knows that people can be gone in an instant so he isn't looking for any committed relationships. His sister calls to announce her engagement and insists her brother plan her wedding while she tours Europe with her fiancee's band. Since Darian is a CEO so doesn't have the time or knowledge to plan a wedding, he enlists the help of his longtime personal assistant, Allison. Ali has been Darian assistant for the past four years. She loves her job but since being Darian's assistant requires her time at all hours of the day and night, Ali is ready for change so her life can more to it than work. Darian's assignment of planning his sister's wedding to her just solidifies her resolve that it is time to move on.
This was a light, fun, quick read. This story had humor, angst, and heat. The author did an amazing job of connecting me to the characters and hoping for a HEA. This was my first book by this author but it won't be the last.

Third person POV.
Alison was Darian's executive assistant for four years, keeping things 100% professional and platonic, until Darian's sister calls one day wanting him to help her plan a wedding in a month's time. The monumental task would have been impossible if not for the help of his assistant, but eventually all the hours spent planning romance wear on them. Neither planned for it, but both obviously harbored some deep-seated emotions...
The characters are truly enjoyable and richly developed. The chemistry between the leads built slow, but they'd been quite compatible from the start. Secondary characters added a fun layer to the plot. The dialogue was believable and the interaction felt natural. The plot had some minor conflicts along the way that were always resolved in a timely and appropriate manner. There was a slight bit of predictability throughout, but nothing outstanding. The plot flowed smooth and steady. The conclusion seemed to wrap up rather quickly and too easily, but it was still a solid ending with a satisfying end.
This was my first time reading something from Ms. Davies and I'd be happy to read more of her work down the road.

Fun relaxing read
I loved this one! It was refreshing to read a story with a very successful powerful man who didn't dictate to his employees or walk around with an air of entitlement. Darian King was a self made billionaire who cares deeply for the ones he loves. That's not say he can't be tough and ruthless when the need arises. He's a commitment phobe to the core but when his sister asks for his help organizing her wedding what can he do. Well, call in his already overworked assistant of course. Allison Reed knows it's time for a change. Late nights working and having very little time for a social life is not what she had planned for her life yet that's exactly where she was. She intends to quit as Darian King's assistant but just hasn't found the right way to tell him yet. Then the last straw is pulled. He wants her help planning his sisters upcoming rush wedding. She decides that's enough. She'll complete this last task and that's it. Or is it????
This was a fun relaxing read that was filled with humor, passion, and love. An excellent read that I recommend to everyone.
