    This book was pretty much unreadable, it was silly and childish and it read like something written by a teenager There were mini info dumps throughout the entire book that added things that were completely irrelevant to the story Every woman especially Emily in the book was a TSTL doormat and Adrian was a sexual harassment suit waiting to happen The main characters are supposedly adults, but they actedlike immature kids, and while persistence is usually cute and sexy on a male MC, it This book was pretty much unreadable, it was silly and childish and it read like something written by a teenager There were mini info dumps throughout the entire book that added things that were completely irrelevant to the story Every woman especially Emily in the book was a TSTL doormat and Adrian was a sexual harassment suit waiting to happen The main characters are supposedly adults, but they actedlike immature kids, and while persistence is usually cute and sexy on a male MC, it was creepy and stalkerish on Adrian I felt like the author basically pulled out plots and scenes from similar novels that were actually well written and tried to make it something new and unique, but she failed miserably

    OK I had multiple problems with this book The characters were shallow, felt like she was about 14 and he about 16 with their childish behavior and little girl cutsie attitude and Adrian was a walking Sexual Harassment Suit just waiting to happen I mean what type of boss hits on a total stranger in an interview get real And If I had been her I would have slapped him, walked out and filed a complaint about it Not turned around and accept the job He was cruel to her at times, deliberately OK I had multiple problems with this book The characters were shallow, felt like she was about 14 and he about 16 with their childish behavior and little girl cutsie attitude and Adrian was a walking Sexual Harassment Suit just waiting to happen I mean what type of boss hits on a total stranger in an interview get real And If I had been her I would have slapped him, walked out and filed a complaint about it Not turned around and accept the job He was cruel to her at times, deliberately scaring her or embarrassing her He showed no real genuine feelings for her and she was a doormat..she just kept taking the comments, touches etc I mean really what 24 year old woman would just give in and do everything he tells her to A doormat The scene where he basically tells her he is going to prostitute her out for a night just about did me in And whats with all the blushes and embarrassment whenever he kisses her or touches her or makes a comment No one at that age is that naive and stupid Hell she wasn t a virgin so whats the deal with that I know the author was trying to show inexperience, but that felt like he was hitting on a 10 year old the way she behaved And His father if my future father in law spoke to me like that I would be offended and probably have hit him It was creepy, not funny The writing itself was ok, a bit sporadic and it felt like the author was jumping around a bit, but I think with practice and time she could be decent at writingbut her story definitely needs to improve I really did not understand where all the 4 and 5 stars were coming from He was not an alpha male, he was psychotic if you ask me

    When did sexual harassment become acceptable in the work place The Assistant by Ella Brace was a waste of time and two of my hard earned dollars I hated the characters, especially Amy, the best friend No one was likeable and we had no back story on any of them So you have no idea who the main character, Emily, is or why she desperatly needs the assisting job So much so that she sticks by the prick, Adrain, for so long Also, who in their right mind lets am irresponsible 25 year old run a When did sexual harassment become acceptable in the work place The Assistant by Ella Brace was a waste of time and two of my hard earned dollars I hated the characters, especially Amy, the best friend No one was likeable and we had no back story on any of them So you have no idea who the main character, Emily, is or why she desperatly needs the assisting job So much so that she sticks by the prick, Adrain, for so long Also, who in their right mind lets am irresponsible 25 year old run a multi million dollar business, all by themselves That was never explained to us, nor was it explained to us how he can be best friends with his high school friend, Allen, but be british I was never able to figure out if Allen was American or British, like Adrian I mean he had a sister Lisa who was a teenager so I am assuming Allen is American But if he is American and Adrian is British and they met in high school See what I mean Confusing as fudge P.s Adrian is the worst, he literally throws temper tantrums when he doesn t get his way and has sex with multiple girls in one morning rolls eyes Paaaalease There is nothing sexy or encouraging or indearing about The Assistant It sends the message that it s okay to be sexually harrased as long as your boss is hot and rich Adrian treats Emily like crap and demands things of her that are highly inappropriate for a work relationship The worst part was that Emily let him I like a dominate man just like every other Jane Doe but this was just way over the top and not cute or indearing at all

    Ok first off after reading this book I never want to hear, see, or even think about the word smirk Jesus there are so many ways she could have conveyed a character s facial expression or feelings other then smirk Second it was hard for me to believe the romance was real, Adrian was a arrogant big baby, and Emily was the weakest female character I ve come across in a long time Somehow the relationship happened and Emily was just riding along SPOILERS The kidnapping was just so weird, so Ok first off after reading this book I never want to hear, see, or even think about the word smirk Jesus there are so many ways she could have conveyed a character s facial expression or feelings other then smirk Second it was hard for me to believe the romance was real, Adrian was a arrogant big baby, and Emily was the weakest female character I ve come across in a long time Somehow the relationship happened and Emily was just riding along SPOILERS The kidnapping was just so weird, so you mean to tell me that Emily is soooo hot that a smart, wealthy business man kidnaps her OKAYYYYYY Mason is a pig and everyone finds it cute and funny even his wife ALRIGHTTTTY The best friend w the constant yelling There are so many ways that excitement can be convyed w out shouting The least annoying character was Allen

    1 star or 5 stars, that is the million dollar question, for me I m relatively new to Wattpad, The Assistant being the second book that I discovered The description had me interested from the beginning, but after reading into the information and comments made on Wattpad, I discovered that this book had been picked up by a publisher I m all for seeing people succeed, so congratulations to the author But, here is where I have such conflicting feelings about how to rate this book.1 but not real 1 star or 5 stars, that is the million dollar question, for me I m relatively new to Wattpad, The Assistant being the second book that I discovered The description had me interested from the beginning, but after reading into the information and comments made on Wattpad, I discovered that this book had been picked up by a publisher I m all for seeing people succeed, so congratulations to the author But, here is where I have such conflicting feelings about how to rate this book.1 but not really I m not patient I always check to make sure a book is completed before reading on Wattpad, but I was evenexcited when I got to purchase this book for my Kindle but that leads to 22 Even better, a book picked up by a publisher means a polished story Or so you would think My thoughts while reading this book were Did this book even go to an editor There were hundreds maybe even thousands of typos and grammar errors I understand that this isn t an American author, so not everything is going to be the same, but I usually don t have to reread sections to try and figure out what words are missing It was almost like reading a fill in the blank book.3 How many times can a girl blush or stutter before its beyond annoying For me, about 20% into the book It was enough that I started replacing words in my head A quick Kindle search for the word blush came up with 150 results including, blush, blushing and blushed I m not sure if that is accurate, or if my Kindle just gave up and decided this girl blushes too damn much and stopped counting.Normally, I look past most of these details when it comes to self published authors If I m hooked on a story or the characters, it doesn t ruin my reading experience However, I do expectout of publishers, there really is no excuse, to me This is where the 1 star rating comes into play.I m sure by now it seems as if I hated The Assistant, but I didn t I actually loved this story I love cheesy romance and over the top plots It took me awhile to become invested in the characters, it least, Emily And even then, she was just okay My biggest problem with Emily was letting Adrian walk all over her Even then, it waslike knock her down and run his car over her and back up and run her over again You get the idea Adrain is her boss, and I get that, but Sheesh, the girl needs to blush less and stand up for herself Emily wasn t a virgin, but she might as well be It isn t until a bit into the story that we learn that she has in fact lost her v card What didn t work for me was the, I had sex once with my boyfriend, but he broke up with me when I told him I didn t want to do it again There was no real explanation as to why About half way into the book things started looking up Emily started beingassertive and I started liking her , but by that time, there was no way to erase all the other negatives about her from my mind.Adrian Hot, rich, British, alpha male and most times controlling asshole, Check, check, check and check sigh Need I sayOverall, I liked this bookthan I was annoyed with few things mentioned above I only recommend this book, if you enjoy over the top situations Sleeping with multiple women, one after another, happens through a pretty big portion of this book, but if you can get past that, Adrian will make you fall in love with him in the end Oh, and a future father in law that is obsessed with tits and ass, is disturbingly hilarious

    If there was a negative star scale I would have given this book top marks The Assisstant by Elle Brace is a book that, were Grammar Nazis in power, would have the author condemned to life imprisonment My pet peeve and the book is riddled with so many peeves is the chronic overuse of the word smirk and by chronic I man apocaliptically so Our hero s and I use the word purely in its literary sense incessant smirking is so good that he s apparently had it trademarked a fact we are blud If there was a negative star scale I would have given this book top marks The Assisstant by Elle Brace is a book that, were Grammar Nazis in power, would have the author condemned to life imprisonment My pet peeve and the book is riddled with so many peeves is the chronic overuse of the word smirk and by chronic I man apocaliptically so Our hero s and I use the word purely in its literary sense incessant smirking is so good that he s apparently had it trademarked a fact we are bludgeoned with on every other page and gradually infects every other character in the book as it progresses, until it is rare for any character to do anything but smirk In fact it is quite evident that the author has no idea what the word actually means, evidenced by the repeated use of the phrase smugly smirked hint the two words basically mean the same thing I mfluent in Oxford than American English but that aside there are some glaring gaffes when it comes to tenses Here s a hint Ms Brace It s probably easier to leave something in the past than the passed and don t get me started on the difference between two, too, and to I think it would be fair to say that if the author has paid to have the novel professionally edited then she has been severely ripped off, and if she edited it herself then not only should she be ashamed but would be well served in investing in either a a decent creative writing course, or, b a reputable literary editing firm.Preferably both.Leaving aside the technical issues, the story itself is such that I have to question the gender of the author given its misogynistic overtones The male lead, Aiden,the purported head of a multi million dollar global empire is neither likeable nor relate able Indeed, real life would have such a sex crazed, immature man slapped with so many sexual harassment lawsuits that his millions would be quickly swallowed by the judicial system The female lead, Emily, sets the Women s Movement back decades as she puts up with indignities from the get go that would have any self respecting professional woman filing charges tout de suite Her so called best friend a flimsy character at best is no help as she encourages Emily to overlook her boss s childish temper and pysical liberties, labelling them as harmless signs of affection, totally justified since he is rich and handsome Abused women everywhere would scream out at the actions of the characters in this truly bad novel The ending, following as it was a truly farcical attempt at conflict, was akin to sitting through the endless epilogue scenes of The Lord of The Rings movies as the reader is slapped with epilogue after epilogue after epilogue when GodI just want it to be over How many times do I have to endure demonstrations of how in love this pair of deviants are, and, excuse me, but no woman wants to have sex after having been through that particular experience in epilogue 2 To summarise, The Assistant manages to hit the trifecta of literary awfulness awful writing awful characters and awful plot and for a bonus, hey, it s actually quite offensive too It was like reading a car crash you know the sight is going to mentally scar you forever but you can t turn your head to not look That can be my only excuse for reading all the way to the end Now, if you ll excuse me, I need to go and bleach out my brain

    I see all the high ratings and I just don t understand The books was soooo off, humor was disconnected, heck the whole book was disconnected It read like a Wattpad book to me, each chapter disjointed w the previous one.Characters were flat and downright annoying because they were so repetitive The hero reminded me of a toddler tantrums physical , poutings, unreasonable demands, and just plain immaturity that made me wonder if I would even let him run an ice cream stand let alone a billion d I see all the high ratings and I just don t understand The books was soooo off, humor was disconnected, heck the whole book was disconnected It read like a Wattpad book to me, each chapter disjointed w the previous one.Characters were flat and downright annoying because they were so repetitive The hero reminded me of a toddler tantrums physical , poutings, unreasonable demands, and just plain immaturity that made me wonder if I would even let him run an ice cream stand let alone a billion dollar company And of course, the heroine reminded me of his mother I guess, that is the point of their romance, I don t know If you enjoyed books like Tangled or Beautiful Bastard, or even Harlequin boss romances, this will be a very very very poor effort to replicate those
