His Private Assistant (Billionaire Office Romance) (Thorn Brothers Series Book 1) by Sissi Grandeur

This is the first book in the Thorn Brothers Series.

“Believe me, Electra, when I say this will be an entirely new experience for you.”

And he is right. It is something different, forbidden, and exciting. It is thrilling, sensual, and provocative.
Even when I’m afraid of the unknown, I feel safe. He protects me, cherishes me, and adores me. And at the end of the night, I know that I’m his.

Electra has been a private assistant at Thorn Enterprises for years. She loves her job, and has a great relationship with her boss. However, her usually peaceful life is turned upside down when the current CEO retires and is replaced by his oldest son, Sebastian Thorn.

From the first moment Electra lays her eyes on Bastian, she is enchanted by him; drawn to him. He is like a magnet for her. She can’t get him out of her head. But his behavior toward her is despicable, pushing her to be one step away from quitting her job. She stays to give her boss one final chance, and in return, he rewards her by giving her the most unforgettable experience of her life.

I enjoyed reading this book. The story was good and I liked the characters.

I loved Electra. She was a good character and I loved seeing her thoughts and feelings slowly develop towards Bastian. She knew nothing of his lifestyle, but she was willing to learn. He almost pushed her to the edge, but she gave him a chance which paid off in the end.

I liked Bastian. He was a bit of a grump, especially at the beginning in the office. He made things hard for her until he laid his offer out on the table. I loved the softer more affection side of him and the fact that it was Electra who brought that out of him. I just wished that there was more chapters in his POV.

The scenes between them were steamy. I loved seeing Bastian introducing her to the lifestyle and teaching her about her new role. I liked how Electra pushed his buttons at times. She enjoyed everything he did, even most of the punishments.

There was only small things which stopped me from giving this five stars. I felt the first chapter served no relevance. Yes, it was a new experience for Electra, but it had nothing to do with the rest of the story. I just didn’t see it’s relevance. I also didn’t like the overuse of the word orbs. There are a lot of different ways to describe eyes so it could have been shaken up a little instead of repeating the same word over.

I also get that this was a HFN, but the ending seemed very abrupt. I loved how things progressed and seeing him finally show her his true feelings, but I just felt that it needed something more. The ending just came out of nowhere.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and loved the characters. The scenes were hot and I enjoyed the story. It was a fun quick read and I would recommend it.

My rating: 4/5*
