“Will you do me the greatest honor of all time and be my bridegroom?” she asks, hope in her eyes . . .
How did I get here? My assistant, bent on one knee, holding my hand, her expectant face waiting for an answer.
Just . . . how?
How did I go from being insulted by Charlee Cox to hiring her to be my assistant? How is it that she’s chaos in color – making me crazy and my life better at the same time?
I never thought I would be staring down at her bright blue eyes begging me to go along with this ridiculous scheme I suggested.
Yes, I suggested. Like the idiot I am, I thought hey, why not start an HR nightmare and have my assistant ask me to marry her?
Confused? Don’t worry, so am I.
But try to follow along, because this is how I became Boss Man Bridegroom.
❝ Will you do me the greatest honor of all time and be my bridegroom? ❞
This book landed on my kindle at the perfect time. With all the Covid-19 shit I needed to get away and Meghan Quinn delivered the perfect getaway.
I’ve had books where I’ve giggled here and there but I completely fell off my chair laughing while reading this book. It was amazing, really. Charlee Cox, our main woman, was H I L A R I O U S ! She’s loves office supplies…wait, I mean she’s kind of obsessed. So when she’s at the Second Annual Office Supply Con, NYC she meets a rude and arrogant man, Rath Westin, and he’s not as interested in office supplies such as Charlee.
“Don’t you feel the excitement buzzing in the air? This is the mecca of all pens and paper. Products like the erasable pen were first found here, and whiteout tape . . . don’t even get me started.”
Finally. “You’re deranged.”
Insulted, my eyes widen as I clutch my hand to my chest. “You’re offensive.”
Rath is looking for an assistant and when Rath’s best friends’ assistant advices that Charlee is the perfect candidate, he accepts and offers her the job. The first day on the job doesn’t quite go right and Rath ends up firing Charlee. Only the next day, she comes back and pretends nothing happened the day before.
“She takes my arm again and drags me down the hallway. I’m speechless. Confused.
I fired her yesterday, right?
That’s what happened. I told her to leave . . .
So why is she here looking like Miss Frizzle and acting like we’re at freshman orientation?”
When Charlee’s grandma falls sick, she’s heartbroken. Her grandmas wish is to see Charlee married to the perfect man, and Charlee is scared her grandma is not going to get to see her walk down the aisle. So Rath asks Charlee to marry him and convinces her the marriage will benefit them both.
“Doesn’t have to be a random person.” He pauses, his chest rising and falling faster than before. Time stretches between us as his eyes bore down on mine. It feels like ten minutes pass before he finally licks his lips and says, “Marry me.”
The room stills and only the light hum of his computer fills the silence as I try to comprehend what he just said.
The relationship between Charlee and Rath was perfect and their chemistry was off the charts! Their banter and dioluge was awesome and so hilarious. This is a perfect read.
