Author: Jennifer Blackwood
Released: 5/9/16

Starr Media Second-Assistant Survival Guide
1. Don't call your hot boss the antichrist to his face.
2. Don't stare at hot boss's, um, package or his full sleeve of tattoos. (No. Really. Stop!)
3. Don't get on the malicious first assistant's bad side.
4. Don't forget to memorize the 300-page employee manual.
5. If you value your cashmere, steer clear of boss’s dog.
6. Boss’s dimples are lust-inducing. Do. Not. Give. In.
7. “The elevator ate your clothes” is not a valid excuse for showing up to important meetings half dressed.
8. Don't break seven of the rules within the first week of employment if you, ya know, are in dire need of money to support your sick mom.
9. Whatever you do, don’t fall for the boss. See rule eight about sick mom.
10. Never forget the rules.


Jennifer Blackwood delivers another winner with This book.

I fell in love with Jennifer Blackwood's writing with her Drexler University series, but in this new series, she brings things to another level. The Rule Book is feisty and fun, swoony and HOT all at the same time. I was hooked just reading the synopsis - seriously it set the tone for the whole book.

Brogan - whew, back off book lovers - I claimed him for myself. I loved him - he was the billionaire boss -- but he wasn't typical at all. I loved how relatable he was, how the struggles he fought came clear through the writing and brought him to life for me.

Lainey was hilarious - seriously, she's someone I'd hang around with on a daily basis. Her lack of a filter to keep her from saying things in a way she shouldn't just made me love her even more. Her life 'rules' were awesome too.

The chemistry between these two was palpable, and I loved that they both fought against it for various reasons, but ultimately it just was undeniable. Their interactions were gold and made the story even more enjoyable. I loved how the company handbook rules and Lainey's own personal rules built on the story, they weren't just stuck in randomly, I love how it all fit together.

Jennifer Blackwood wrote a story full of emotions, but also one that will have you laughing. She wrote an amazingly personable heroine in Lainey and paired her with a totally swoon worthy hero, in Brogan.
