Payne? I’ll tell you:
RULES OF PAYNE –
***WARNING – Steamy Sex Scenes – Cake addiction – Incorrect usage of the word Potatoes***
Morgana Drake has some problems in her life. She has a boss she hates but can’t stop fantasizing about him. As she puts her focus into getting into the company’s Executive Development Program she finds only one thing standing in her way, you guessed it – her boss, Henrik Payne.
Henrik Payne is very serious about his job. He has worked hard for over ten years to become VP of Sales and Marketing and make Mimir the third largest online retailer. He has rules he follows to make sure the company and his life run smoothly.
So, why does he keep breaking all his rules?
RULES OF PAYNE 2: Electric Boogaloo –
***WARNING – More Steamy Sex Scenes – Mile High sex that can’t be unread and Dirty Condom Wrappers used as lucky charms***
Morgana Drake has had a taste of Payne and finds she likes it in more ways than one, but she still has a few problems.
Henrik Payne knows what he has to do. In the process he realizes he is too selfish for his own good, and the good of others. He’s also discovers his rules suck balls. He has made a new list.
Henrik and Morgana have gotten caught. Now what?
Do they get fired? Do they stay together? Where does cake fall in all of this? Read this and find out!
THE PAYNE IN THE BLOG –
You have now read the Rules of Payne and Rules of Payne 2 and find an unusual craving for cake? It happens. But you also find out you want so much more. Things that were referenced in the Rules of Payne books, you have to know how it all went down. Well, you are in luck! Get the ‘behind the scenes’ so to speak with this collection of character blog posts. The very first post being the moment Morgana and Henrik first met!
The posts lead directly up to where the book begins. Here’s what Morgana has to say about it:
***WARNING – Real Blog Posts – Sex Scenes – Copious amounts of Cake***
I love cake. Wait, wait, let me start again…. My Boss is an a**hole but mind numbingly gorgeous. That didn’t sound right either. Scratch this (note to author – do not put this in the blurb).
My name is Morgana Drake, I write a blog. You may have heard of it, The Payne in the Blog (same as the title of this book, clever huh!). No? Oh well — you will trust me! I may just be Mr. Henrik Payne’s assistant now, but soon I will be running the company.
How do I know? I can feel it in my bones. There is only one problem, my boss. They don’t just call him the Payne for nothing. He’s a jerk and I hate him! Then why do I keep fantasizing about him? Seriously, I think I need help.
When the dedication is to anyone who has looked at cake and thought “yeah i will have a piece of that.” I knew that she was my people.
So I grabbed some cake, seriously, and started in on the book and the cake of course. Red Velvet if you are wondering.
There is not one page of this book that will not have you either chuckling, giggling or wiping tears from laughing so hard. You know the fully belly laughs that have you bending over and trying to breathe. The author made Morgana so airy that you just want to dig your fork into her cake as she tells you her inner thoughts that are usually word vomit. She says what many of us (I honestly do not have this problem) want to say at any given and what we do not want to say! Payne is the man you love to hate.
Morgana works for Payne and he can really be a pain. Of course there is some history between them. Conference table anyone? And how does a guy fall asleep while “down town”?
Henrik acts not bothered (go see Catherine Tates character Lauren and you will know hear what I hear when I read “:Not Bothered”. Of course I included the skit with David Tennant (Doctor Who #10.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxB1gB6K-2A&noredirect=1) (Sorry tangent there.)But the secret is; he is bothered. Very much so. Naturally (cause when are the virile men not) he is jaded from events from his past which makes him live up to his last name, Payne.
A chance meeting outside of work that is unbeknownst to them and the chart is set to take course on their adventure. Their eyes are set on each other.
The attraction is so strong and tense that a cake knife is whipped out to icing them down. *licks icing*
Morgana and her friends are ones that you want to have in your pocket.
The use of the word potatoes is absolutely hilarious and from now on you will forever see the word differently and chuckle.
The use of cake in every aspect in delicious.
The antics are real life.
The sass, wit, love, fun take on romance stories is done so creatively well that you do not even realize you are reading a book, you feel as if these are your people and you are walking right beside them, with pit stops for cake and the toilet so you do not pee yourself from laughing.
Go and cut you some cake and devour this read.
*An ARC was received for an honest review.
Elizabeth Lynx is not a robot, that’s for sure. At least she says she’s not. She is also not a space alien.
How do I know this, because she was born in Baltimore Maryland in the 1970’s when no one wanted to be in Baltimore Maryland so why would her parents say that if it weren’t true. Of course she has had her suspicions growing up and is still in a continual search for evidence that backs up her space age theories.
To bide her time she writes about ‘normal’ people and their sexy romantic lives. Her husband chooses to put up with her theories and paranoid musings. Her two little boys help her see that perhaps she isn’t an alien but more of a climbing rock. This theory is new, so she needs more time to develop it further.
