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 Darian finds himself less than prepared to plan his little sister’s wedding. Luckily, he has the perfect personal assistant on call to help him.
Working for Darian is a stress-filled 24/7 job that Allison Reed would like nothing more than to quit. But she can’t leave King Enterprises without a glowing reference, so she agrees to help Darian with his sister’s wedding, even if it means getting closer than ever to the billionaire who doesn’t see her as anything more than his assistant. Allison decides that once the wedding is done, she’s out the door, even if Darian starts to look at her a little differently…

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.
