    Oh, boy this is a fun revenge by heroine tale The talent agency owner hero is called Mr Loverman because he dates and discards many, many women Heroine works for him and knows his cardinal rule that he will never date someone who works for him When she was hired, she had a fiance and wasn t concerned about the boss s reputation But her fiance jilted her while working abroad and over the years the heroine has developed a crush on the hero.The story opens with the hero firing the heroine f Oh, boy this is a fun revenge by heroine tale The talent agency owner hero is called Mr Loverman because he dates and discards many, many women Heroine works for him and knows his cardinal rule that he will never date someone who works for him When she was hired, she had a fiance and wasn t concerned about the boss s reputation But her fiance jilted her while working abroad and over the years the heroine has developed a crush on the hero.The story opens with the hero firing the heroine for having a weekend fling with him when they were on location in Tahiti Yes, my jaw dropped along with the heroine s.Hero takes no responsibility for his part in the affair but he is willing to set the heroine up for a dead end job with a voice over company and then they can continue their affair with no strings attached, of course.Heroine is beyond angry and the rest of the story is the heroine setting up a rival agency and doing everything she can to feel better and to make the hero feel worse.I was with her every step of the way Alas, she kept succumbing to the hero s kisses and the hero never bled out from the superficial wounds she inflicted He was angry but he wasn t hurt like the heroine was and I wanted him to hurt If I m wrong on this, I don t want to be right The H h finally call a truce while they are babysitting their big name stars on location in the North of England What began so spectacularly ended in a whimper I think the heroine could have gone on and on goading the hero, but the author ran out of page count We re supposed to believe the hero changed but I didn t see it This is a case of if the heroine is happy, then I ll begrudgingly accept the HEA If you like your heroines smart and full of justified rage you ll love this one especially if you imagine an alternate ending

Lyons brings us a tale of theatrical rivalry when the theatrical agent H fires his assistant h immediately after a torrid weekend in Tahiti where he seduced her because he was bored It seems Mr Loverman Pump and Dump H has a no working with staff he has slept with in a fit of ennui rule for occasions such as this.Our poor little h has no clue that her two years of unrequited love and a dirty weekend lurve club extravaganza are going to cause her to wind up jobless, reference less and contemplating having to sell her nice flat cause she can t meet the mortgage The h can t find another theatrical agent job and her sister won t hire her.ML does the full stereotype here with a red haired h, that is frequently berated as shrewish by the misogynistic, multiple and simultaneous lady buffet sampling H, after the hurt and furious h rejects the H s offer of being the overladen beast of burden for a has been drunkard who owns a voice agency around the corner from the H s office.The H gets all kinds of irate and starts the nasty h is a harlot tart name calling, after telling the h all about the sudden New York City expansion of his agency and how he hired the voice agency owner s current beast of burden guy to go do Big and Great things for the H But the H is sure h will be so grateful to know that she is so downmarket third class that she can easily just slip into the role of eternal handmaiden and run the drunk guy s business, with no acknowledgement, while making herself available for the H to pump and dump in between his regularly scheduled seductions ofpopular, wealthy ladies and theatrical stars The hurt, bewildered H really can t understand why any poor little office type like the h isn t leaping for joy at just the thought of being an occasional afterthought when he needs a little stress relief or a nice back staircase quicky The h is quite rightly livid over this announcement After threatening the H with a wrongful termination suite and then kicking him out of her flat, the h decides to take up an offer to finance her own theatrical agency, made by the H s former partner who is now a big time property developer The H and the former partner broke their partnership after the H s young actress wife had an affair with the partner, so there is not much love lost there and the h is soon convinced that she has the contacts and the knowledge to make a success of an agency of her own.There isverbal spats with the H Especially after the h hires his prior female assistant and uses the similar initials of the H s agency for her own agency name Unfortunately none of this really inflicts much damage on the H, in fact a few H roofie kisses here and there and the h ends up apologizing for her actions all the time even when she manages to set up her own voice talent division and her actions don t directly influence the H.The H meantime is all about flaunting his new assistant, who took over the h s job, and apparently he has no problems sleeping with her and keeping her in the office too, unlike his time with the h Things come to a big blow up when the h gets the H s actress ex wife on her books The woman is a very good and very famous actress, but she is also very narcissistic and the h gets her a plum role in a movie version of Macbeth Theatrically known as The Scottish Play because of bad juju The h s newest and biggest name is in the throws of a major tantrum on the movie set The actress ex wife of the H wanted the part to be with her latest lover, who is the H s contracted actor and stars as the Thane of Cawdor But our murderous King of Scotland actor can t seem to keep his lance of lust in check, either, and while the H s the redoubtable ex wife has no problems cheating herself, she takes great exception to be cheated on.The H is in a bind cause the movie isn t getting made and lawsuit potential is multiplying and he summons the h like a lackey to come sort out her actress The h again allows a few roofie kisses and the Treacherous Body Syndrome to overcome her tiny bit of calcium and answers the H s summons with a loyal pant and a wiggle.The h does do a great job getting the actress back to work and we learn the whole story about how the H and the ex wife were married for two months when the ex was 18 and he was 24 and he was working all the time and she cheated with his former partner and then everyone moved on to bigger and better things, no hard feelings, really, after all this time.All this drama means the by now rather intoxicated with the H s connivance h has to spend the night at the film crew s hotel and of course she ends up sleeping with the H, he had no actresses convenient to shack up with After cracking a joke about stealing the h s client list and then telling her she either sleeps in his bed or outside in his car on a freezing night, the h and H wind up having a boudoir moment after he tells her that he loves her.When the h wakes up in the morning, she finds the H holding her Filofax, which is a leather contact organizer used before smart phones, and she finally figures out that the H is out to mess her over inways than one.She has a major hissy fit and the H basically humiliates and laughs at her The h has a mopey moment in the bathroom and then has to come out apologize to the H, again The h decides to declare her love for the H and he claims that he has a ring, which we never see, and that they need to get married He very conveniently skittles around any references to whomever else he might be sleeping with at the time by claiming he is subject to a lot of exaggeration The H now plans to marginalize her business by moving her into the attic of a supposed new house he will purchase, probably offering to take care of herimportant clients to boot But the h will not really have time for a career anyways, cause she will be tending the domestic and childcare duties of the home front, while the H continues running his multi country theatrical agencies and sleeping with whatever lovely lady happens to be the flavor of the day for the very non sparkly and non believable HEA.This book did nothing but irk me to death I did not find the perpetual cycle of bickering, threats and then h apologies to be in any way, shape or form entertaining ML had to really work hard to stay within what she decided were the precepts of HPlandia which ML believed dictated that an HP h couldn t besuccessful or equal with the H and also that when career and motherhood were at stake, the career had to go You could see the struggle on page, the h would pull off a pretty smart career move and then was forced by the author to go through yet another bickerfest and apology routine with the H It wasn t funny to see this obviously talented and smart h get belittled and unsupported on all sides during this I would have tolerated this book much better in the HPlandia of ten years earlier, but at this point and time in the HP line up, it came across as dated, outmoded and trite and I thought that when I read it 20 years ago ML never did much in the way of hero sincerity here, there was no convincing scene that led me to believe he really did love her Unfortunately this H came acrossas wanting to belittle a woman for daring to challenge him or step outside of his appointed role for her plus she had the temerity to refuse his demands that she wait around for his sexual convenience and he was not about to let that go unpunished There are some funny moments in the book and the story really does move along quickly, but ML also has the h kinda dithery about her new career path That heroine hesitancy is probably supposed to soften the forced abandonment of her career at the end, but as the times in HPlandia are a changing, ML is one of the few HP writers who just can t seem to keep pace with it and her stories are starting to show it

office on a high, only for her boss, Jack, to bring her world tumbling down I should have known better than to give in to temptation however enticing it may have seemed at the time Unfortunately, I can now see that our brieferaffair was a very unfortunate mistake A mistake I m not blaming you it s entirely my own stupid fault, he admitted with a heavy sigh, brushing long, tanned fingers through his dark hair Nevertheless, rules are rules And they apply as much to me as to my colleagues, he added quickly over her strangled gasp of protest So, while I obviously don t want to lose you, I m afraid that I m going to have to terminate your employment with this firm You must be kidding she gasped, scarcely able to believe her ears No I m perfectly serious Suddenly feeling as though she d been hit very hard on the back of the head by a heavy sandbag, Laura stared blankly at his hawk like profile On our trip to the South Pacific, I had absolutely no intention of doing anything which would jeopardise our normal, good working relationship On the other hand he hesitated for a moment I have to confess that during the past year I ve been finding it increasingly difficult to concentrate on work when you re around The truth is, Laura, I find you far tooerfar too distracting Which is precisely why I m going to have to let you go I am very sorry about the situation, of course, but You re sorry How the hell do you think I feel she cried, still not really able to believe that this was happening to her Incidentally, if you re going to fire me, kindly have the courtesy to do it to my face she demanded furiously, incensed at the way he was continuing to avoid looking at her This isn t a decision which I ve taken lightly, he said as he swung his chair back from the window While I agree that you ve always been a valued, highly successful member of this agency, I m not prepared to reconsider my decision However, I will, of course, give you a handsome settlement in lieu of the proper notice, as well as a glowing reference Oh, gee thanks Laura glowered at the handsome man sitting behind his desk So, what happens when, halfway through an interview for a new job, someone asks, And just why did you leave your last firm, Miss Parker What am I supposed to say That my boss fancied a quick fling and is now covered with remorse for having had his evil way with me She gave a shrill, harsh peal of laughter, roughly pushing back her chair as she leaped to her feet For God s sake, Jack, they d never believe it Not in a month of Sundays Calm down, Laura I really don t think that No you re right That s one thing you didn t think about, she retorted, her voice rising in fury as she paced angrily about the room Any prospective employer is bound to assume that I was either cooking the books or that I was caught with my hand in the till And why she demanded fiercely, spinning around to face him Because no one could possibly imagine that handsome Jack Wilder the Mr Loverman of the London theatrical world, who s hadgirls than I ve had hot dinners would sack a colleague simply because they spent a weekend together Don t be ridiculous he snapped I m not the one who s going to look ridiculous when the news gets out, she stormed, her temper by now well out of control as she hit back at the man who was treating her so cruelly Get out Relax I m going But if you think you ve seen or heard the last of me you re very much mistaken, she hissed, quickly whisking herself around the other side of the door as Jack left his desk and began moving menacingly towards her Because I m going to get my own back on youyou philandering Casanova if it s the last thing I ever do I must confess at this stage I didn t really like Jack very much, but Ms Lyons quickly back tracks to their weekend away, and we see a different Jack, one whose clearly smitten with Laura However, Laura was right, no one seemed to have a job for her, and when her settlement doesn t arrive, nor the glowing recommendation, she faces the prospect of having to sell her condo because she can t keep up the mortgage And just as she thinks she s heard the last from Jack he prances back into her life, and thinks he s got the perfect job for her with another firm, but it s not the job Laura felt she deserved and after another sparring match, it s Jack s turn to storm out The only solution is to start her own casting agency, with Jack s former partner backing her It s obvious to this reader that Jack and Laura adore each other with Jack afraid of commitment after a bad brief marriage, and Laura afraid that Jack is only interested in sleeping with her There s is an explosive combustible relationship, riddled with misunderstandings and jumps to ridiculous conclusions Their trip to HEA was great fun to read
