I take whatever book I am reading with me wherever I go so it was inevitable that someone was going to catch me reading Promoted to Wife in public It just happened to be at our local grocery store I am well Flying Scotsman Manual known there because I cook for our family every night and I love fresh produce and ingredients I am at the store daily So when Diane one of the cashiers saw me reading Promoted to Wife she was uite happy to tease me and I took it with good grace But as I walked away she said You could learn some things from reading books like that sic I thought Really So here s what I learnedTwelve Things I Learned Reading Promoted to Wife12 I am too fat and poor and old to be desirable in any way 11 Romance is all about domination and mindgames10 I spend way too much time making love when I make love I should just fall asleep when it is all over 9 Communication schommunication8 Screw flowers and chocolate expensive shoes are the perfect romantic gift7 Computer billionaires Real Estate millionaires and Mafiosos have nothing in common 6 It is my groin that should be swelling rather than my penis 5 You can t be friends if the things you do to one another are downright dirty 4 You really can write a book set in Australia without any marsupials 3 Motherhood doesn t define the uintessential feminine that would be shopping 2 A little bit of rape is acceptable so long as your lover wants it 1 I could have learned the previous eleven lessons except maybe 4faster and enjoyably watching Days of Our Lives Younow though I wouldn t be opposed to reading another As a romantic fantasy the affair with the boss is at once and less understandable than most formulas of the genre On the one hand it is relatively plausible many women work and most workers at some point have bosses and people do have workplace romances You are a lot likely to be groped by a supervisor than carried off by a sheik On the other hand rendering this scenario romantic seems a bit difficult Of course being ravished by raiders of whatever ilk pirates sheiks feuding Highlanders etc would not be at all romantic either but as a potentiality it is so removed from the lives of average romance consumers as to constitute pure fantasy But the office is a realistic setting hypothetically Raise your hand if you ve ever had a hot unattached billionaire boss Now lower your hand if your boss never inappropriately touched you Yeah there s the really difficult part of the fantasy If your boss is a decent human being or sensibly concerned with sexual harassment laws he will not take off your glasses touch your breast tell you to change your hairstyle talk about your body ask about personal matters that you have explicitly reuested to not talk about call you at home for a ride when drunk or push you against a wall and fondle you If he does sue him and then use the settlement to finance your career as a life coach live comfortably while finding a new job Even within the fantasy structure she herself has created Roe is unable to escape this distasteful issue of power ineuality indeed it appears to be inherent in the subgenre which almost always features a woman in an ancillary role to the male love interest These comments are really general to a formula rather than specific to this book This particular story was uite weak as to plot tension and the characters were cardboard They wear boring clothes seem to have few and generic interests jogging shopping listening to extremely well nown music Even their descriptions of one another reflect a lack development For instance Emily describes her sister with whom she supposedly has a very close relationship as uncomplicated straight talking and her sister calls her a hyper organized good girl with a strong moral compass Please jump in I m incorrectly generalizing from myself Running a multibillion dollar company meant long hours for Zac Prescott Thankfully his efficient assistant made the workload almost bearable Theirs was a strictly professional relatio.
Ut I never think of my family or close friends in this type of reductive pigeon holing Zac does the same sort of uick one sentence characterization of his brother But maybe I m naive in imagining that most people are smarter and less shallow than these characters Books like this sure make that easy to doubt Very Hot fantasy and likable lickable Of course as with most romance books not really plausible in real life but most people read all forms of fiction for escapism when real life escape is not possible Most of my career peers are married to people in the same industry It s a result of long work hours and long commutes as there s not a lot of time to meet mates in other ways I m not sure how younger people will meet mates as the business climate has become palpably very paranoid and sabotages most opportunities for trust networking or I ve noticed an extreme change in how genders interact at work Rbrs 11I m glad the title has a uestion mark at the end because what the heck ind of message would it have without that little suiggle of doubt or even worse if it had been an exclamation point I was once talking to a coworker s wife about the rough work week that was happening and she casually tossed out that all I d have to do was get married and then I wouldn t have to work at all I didn t Whalerider know what to say to that and suppressed my immediate urge to vent a spittle filled pssh of disbelief or an oh my God or horror or a motherfcker of disgust I ended up giving a non commital laugh with a neutral I guess that works for some We didn t become friendsI don t mean that choosing work over creating family is the way to go but I certainly don t believe choosing to focus on the domestic over work is superior I hugely admire people who ve made allinds of choices career driven family centric tackling both and the tendency to raise one over the other isnot goodAnyway the title is unfitting for what ended up unfolding in this book Did anyone else think the timeline was screwy that the book stated she d worked for this dude for 2 years but then later the dude stated she d worked for him for 6 months Maybe I misunderstood A woman who is very good at her job attempts to go back to school to prepare for her own business life coaching and I laugh at the thought of it but looking at my path so far maybe I could benefit from it She d been careful to Charlie Turns Into a T-Rex keep herself businesslike and totally disguised with glasses as wenow from the movies glasses can hide everything from superhuman strength to a smokin body and boxy blazers but her boss chanced to see her in casual clothes and got the hots for her He tricks her into staying as she is his assistant but it s okay because they re meant to be together Before they realize this he coerces her into a sexytimes arrangement but it s okay because she really actually wants him too There are a few cardboard conflicts including a dead ex husband s debts rich family issues a blip of a stalker At the veeeeeery end there s a tacked on marriage proposal Oops spoiler alert And hey it all works out in the end because spoiler alert her father in law to be agrees to fund her studies and business None of these should be spoilersI did appreciate that even though she s supposed to be totally gorgeous with great jugs and hot buns this is embarrassing it s like my sorry excuse for cussing but different she s awkward Not original but at least she s not perfectI realize I m overlaying my own working values over this reverie of a situation that this is not intended to be realistic but the contemporary setting throws me off and I think it makes me not expect everything to work out just rightI have to add in my field by the time someone gains enough experience to become a managerboss they ve usually married their schoolteacher sweetheart had a few.
