Publisher's Summary

Will his temporary PA turn into something permanent when they land in Vegas?

When billionaire hotelier Luca Bernardi discovers his trusty assistant can't come with him on an important business trip, he panics. Thankfully, she calls in a backup. Only...she was a little under the influence of heavy narcotics when she made the call...and when the temp shows up wearing sequins and a tiara, Luca wonders if his PA has taken leave of her senses and arranged for a...worker of the night instead of a professional assistant.

As the PA to a renowned venture capitalist, Marcel Abbott knows his way around an investment negotiation. As far as he's concerned, he's the best temp this Luca guy could ever want for his business trip to Vegas. But when Marcel boards Luca's private jet, Luca treats him like...a rent boy. Just what does this man think the "P" in "PA" stands for?

enjoyed it

Would I listen to it again: yes
Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Was I invested in the characters: yes

📖 Story comment: Good pace, likeable characters, nice flow. Considering how short this is, it was entertaining and I enjoyed the interaction between Luca and Marcel. There isn't much in the way of character development, but having listened to Hostile Takeover first, it was nice to get more of a glimpse into Macel's character.

🎧 Narrator comment: I enjoyed Michael Dean's narration, he knows how to bring the best to Lucy Lennox's characters. He has good cadence, inflections and intonations and it's easy to distinguish the characters from each other. Overall an enjoyable performance.

Love this!

I adore this. Soo funny and so swoony. Can we just appreciate marcel and his sass, and also be so happy to get to know them and their relationship outside of the intro of these two in hostile takeover. Totally sweet short story—can be a standalone but sets you up for more!

Perfect lead up to the next book.

Love this short. These two were adorable to have Michael narrate. Can’t wait for the next one to come to audible.

Short but good

I listened to this on audio, and because I speed up most narrators, this made a short story very short but enjoyable.

I did laugh a lot at the shenanigans of Billionaire Luca and his temp PA Marcel. But, if nothing else, it will make you smile a lot, and that's what we need from our romance fiction.

This is a good story, with zany characters and lust. Well written has good narration, and overall a really fun read.

Michael Dean is a great narrator and doesn't disappoint, and I did speed up to 1.25 on audible.
