Overall rating 4. Yes No Thanks for your feedback! Report as inappropriate. The premise sounded promising and I was really looking forward to reading this, but it was too slow-paced in the beginning and had too much explaining. Loved it!!!!!!!! Brilliant, its amazing the tge things that you wish for the most are always were you least expect to find them.
That's exactly what happens with these two Claire has been right in front of Jason and he never quite took notice, there story is fantastic. This was a great book looking forward to number two … Show more Show less. It is a relaxing novel to read but a little bit lacking in excitement. It failed to spark my interest. The author 's other series were more an interesting read.

It seems a little far fetched in a contemporary story. Not to mention that she works for who is supposedly a very prominant CEO of a major company. I find it hard to believe that a she isn't well paid and actually has time for a side job b she has managed to keep that side job for 3 yrs with no other embarassing reveals in front of clients, collegues etc. In record time after seeing jump out of the cake, Jason notices her and decides that he loves her She has great deal of annoying baggage from her past and as a result, has issues regarding what she perceives as contolling men and her pride won't let her accept his help.
She thinks he is trying to control her life by playing Capt. Save-a-ho and paying for sex when it turns out that he has always been generous with his employees and has helped them in times of need. How is it possible that her best friend, the corporate event planner knows this yet she, his personal assistant for three years doesn't? Despite the far fetched nature of some parts of the book, I did enjoy the story.
It was also nice to encounter a male lead character that was a "normal" alpha-male. No baggage, no kinky sexual tendencies, isn't motivated by intense jealousy and possessiveness. He's a normal, rational, kinder and gentler version of "Christian Grey". If you have been reading some of the current popular contemporary romances like I have been, you might find that a little refreshing.
This totally back fired! Let me explain: I am super busy and wanted to listen to something light and fun while I work in the studio.. I got this as an audio-expecting a fluffy romance.
But what I got instead was, well annoying. I couldn't only not relate to ANY character, there was also no character growth. In short the character building was lacking at best.
Each character was so cliche, so predictable that they actually grated on my nerves. The story line, well I kinda expected predictable- its a romance you know, so it comes with the territory. But I was wrong- it wasn't just predictable it was boring. VERY boring. The worst thing though- the dialogues.
Get A Copy
They felt stiff, recycled and half the time just annoyed me. Though the writing style is not completely terrible, I am not a fan of it. It felt woody and unimaginative at times at other times it was repetitive and felt like Landon was trying to hard. The only part of this book I thought was actually any good was the smut! Yes, exactly! The SMUT- the only redeeming feature. Now I happily read books without it- so I am happily rounding this down.
The narrator was ok. I think she made the reading more bearable, but I also have heard better narrations. This book is to cliche and unimaginative for my tastes and it is the perfect example about everything I dislike in a romance novel. Well, except for that smut. That was actually quite yummy.
Which is besides the point. Back to the issue at hand: My tenuous relationship with the genre has just been set back by at least ten books. I am not even sure I wanna dare reading or listening to anything in the genre for the foreseeable future. I don't know if I should just ignore this and jump right back into cute and fluffy- cause I definitely didn't get my cutesy fix or if I should just go back to fantasy. Thing is instead of ranting right now, I really should be working.
BUT Weekends Required just totally messed up my audio plans and my happy vibe. Wish me luck or even better send me recommendations for really good audiobooks that I might like! Needles to say I wont be going on with this series. Oct 21, Marilyn's Book Blog rated it it was amazing. This book is the first book in the Danvers Series, and I can't wait to read the rest.
The two main characters in this book are Claire and Jason. Claire has been Jason's assistant at Danvers International for the last three years. She has always been very plain Jane, wearing her hair pulled back with brown, beige, or tan clothing.
Jason has been very pleased with her work but never saw her as more than an assistant. Claire is very professional but can't help fantasizing about her boss. A little ba This book is the first book in the Danvers Series, and I can't wait to read the rest. A little background on Claire: She comes from a home with an abusive father. He is no longer alive because he died in a car accident along with Claire's sister, Chrissie. Claire's mother is unable to take care of herself as she is suffering from Alzheimers and diabetes.
Louise, a very close family friend, helps care for Claire's mother. There is much expense involved in taking care of her mother, so Claire has had to take on a second job which is for Partiez Plus. She jumps out of cakes at bachelor parties.
Claire's worst nightmare comes true when she jumps out of a cake at a particular bachelor party and Jason is at the party. He immediately recognizes her but can't believe how beautiful she is. He is mesmerized and also confused as to why she has this side job.
He suddenly because determined to learn more about her and find out why she has this job. He does not like the thought of other men ogling her. Jason learns of Claire's situation and begins to understand why she has her second job.
He tries to be helpful and take charge of things in her life. He believes he is helping her; she believes he is showing controlling tendencies which reminds her of her father.
She decides to break things off with him because she does not want to ever be in the same situation as her mother was in.
They are both heartbroken because by this time they are both in love. Claire's mother explains to Jason what Claire's concerns are, so he realizes he needs to change his ways.
Claire comes to the conclusion that Jason is really only trying to be helpful and look after her, not control her. They realize they both have things to work on, but they would rather work on those things together rather than be apart. This is a great love story, but it is also a story about learning how to let go of the past so a future is possible. Both characters have to grow and learn to be trusting. I can't wait to read the second book in the series, Not Planning on You, which I have already downloaded!
Weekends Required gets five out of five stars from me. Aug 23, Fred rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Fans of Therese Ragan, Linda Kage. This was a cute, sweet fast read and I enjoyed it quite a bit. The MC is adorable, if sometimes a bit self-defeating, but c'mon there's gotta be some conflict, right? I liked how they sort of stayed together during the misunderstanding part, instead of rushing off and stewing about it, this time their mutual need overcame that and kept them engaged, if at odds.
It's a romance, and a tenderhearted one at that, too. Suzy, her best friend, is a super charming character, and I'm glad to hear she's g This was a cute, sweet fast read and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Suzy, her best friend, is a super charming character, and I'm glad to hear she's getting her own book in the series next.
Have fun reading this, I sure did! Oct 07, Maree Repa added it. I found this series that I knew I would just love so I thought I would start at the first one As I just didn't want to miss out on anything. It was such a beautiful romance. I just loved the writing, so appealing to the eye and I knew that there was still so much more in the characters, Jason and Claire. I just can't wait to start on this beautiful series no 2. Such a great read!!
May 03, Emily rated it liked it Shelves: Overall rating: Karekterler yerinde. Apr 01, Beate rated it it was ok Shelves: The only reason why I managed to finish this book as quickly as I did, was because I was stuck in a hospital for two days, with nothing to do but read.
Trust me, that is not a good thing. Had I been home, it would have taken me more than a week to get through this one. Nothing annoyed me as much in this book as how the author used he said she said in the book.
Let's put that to the test where we swap out the names with the nouns, shall we? Au The only reason why I managed to finish this book as quickly as I did, was because I was stuck in a hospital for two days, with nothing to do but read.
Admitted Jason. Swap 1: Admitted he. Correct grammar: He admitted. Swap 2: Jason admitted. Stammered Claire. Stammered she. She stammered. Claire stammered. Offered Jason. Offered he. He offered. Jason offered. See where I'm going with this? The other way around only serves to make for awkward reading, and is most often found in fanfiction.
There are some books who sport verb before noun, but they are rare.

This is one of the bigger issues with the book, but there are more. Like continuity issues. At one point Claire lives with her mother, then a few pages in, she's living on her own. At first we learn that Jason lives in the penthouse above his offices, then towards the end of the book he lives in a house he designed and has been for years. In the beginning we learn Jason only eats take away since he can't cook, but towards the end he's quite handy in the kitchen and can whip up a number of meals.
We also learn early on that Claire's dad was never physically abusive to anyone, he just yelled a lot and had a mean way with words.
Towards the end, it is strongly hinted at that he also was physically abusive to her mom. Again it seemed like the author forgot about very cruicial details and just randomly changed characteristics. It feels like once a chapter was done, the author completely forgot how the little details went. Which is an issue which is also often found in fanfiction due to one chapter being written, posted, reviewed, and then some time later the author writes another chapter following the same format.
In the end so much time has passed by, what was written weeks ago is vague and often details are forgotten. I'm not claiming this is a rewrite pulled to publish , but it sure does read like one. Both the author and the book would have benefitted greatly from brining on a good editor who could have picked up on all these things. Using your friends to correct your grammar doesn't help, a professional is a much safer bet.
I nearly fell out of my chair when the author called Claire a drama queen.
That was the first time I whole-heartedly agreed with the author. In parts, a lot of info-dumping happened all at once, making for a lot of skimming. And it was too heavy on the telling and not a lot of showing going on. A lack of balance, if you will. A heroine who keeps lying, even if it's explained ad nauseaum why and how much she hated it, it's just Makes for an even less likeable heroine. Had she avoided the subjects she had to lie about.
Had she chosen to not reply when asked about her whereabouts. Anything would have been better than the outright lying. And I never warmed to the sudden, but very handy solution to all of Claire's financial problems. It seemed to come from left field, and as if it was written in to just wrap up the story already. Seeing how lately I have been literally attacked over some of my negative reviews, here's a lil' something to chew on from the Goodreads guidelines before you decide to use me as an outlet for your frustraions: Negative book reviews do not count as inappropriate.
Then I started commenting and finally I applied to be a reviewer and the rest they say is history. Weekends Required is the first published work by Sydney Landon. Claire not only supports herself but takes care of her ailing mother as well. To do this she has a second job with a party service which includes jumping out of cakes for bachelor parties.
When Jason sees his buttoned up assistant jumping out of a cake, he about blows a gasket. Because this is a novella, the relationship between these two moves fairly quickly. We learn early on the Claire grew up with a controlling and verbally abusive father.
Jason grew up taking care of his alcoholic mother and dealing with a workaholic father. To say their path towards happily ever after was difficult is an understatement.
What Jason sees as caring, Claire sees as controlling. It takes her good friend, the hilarious Suzy, and the woman who she considers a second Mom, Louise, to make her confront how her past is affecting her future. For a first effort, this is a great story. Although I read it when it was first released, a second reading prior to her latest release left me feeling the same way…happy and eagerly anticipating the next book.
I really wanted to like this book. It had tons of great reviews. But unfortunately this book did nothing for me. It has a lot of potential with the plot but the Hero was very wishy washy.

I felt like the author was trying to make him dominate but sweet. Really he was a jerk not dominate one minute calling her a stripper because she jumped out of a cake and then the next minute he was sweet holding her while she is puking in the bathroom because she was drunk.
Through out most of the book he ju I really wanted to like this book. And if she ever finds out that I killed her stepfather and stepbrother, I'm afraid nothing short of a miracle will make the beautiful spitfire give me a chance to prove that there is more to me than the job she holds so much contempt for.
