Summary from goodreads.com:

Henry Beck, the gorgeous CEO of an advertising company, was in need of a new personal assistant. He expected HR to hire someone older, more experienced, maybe even with gray hair. Who he got instead was the beautiful, young, single mother – Claire Russell. A woman who he is having a hard time keeping his eyes off of…

Claire never expected her new boss to be the most gorgeous man she’s ever laid eyes on. She also never expected him to be sweet to her two year old son, Ethan. But Henry is her boss and there is no future with him. Or so Claire thinks…

Will Henry and Claire be able to fight the obvious attraction between them? Will Henry’s overbearing mother come between them? Or will a freak accident change their perspectives on life and what’s most important.

My review:

Holy grammar and spelling errors batman!  Some editor needs to be fired.  This book is riddled with spelling and grammatical errors.  It was almost like it wasn’t edited at all.  I would have rated this book higher if the spelling/grammar weren’t so bad.  Ok, now jumping down from my soap box….

So Henry is about Henry Beck, CEO of an advertising agency, who gets a new assistant named Claire.  Claire is a single mom of a 2-year old trying to make ends meet.  There is an instant attraction between them, but they both fight it.  Henry ends up with the flu, and Claire ends up taking care of him.  And then his mother comes in….

Henry’s mother is AWFUL.  Overbearing, annoying.  I’m the mother of two boys and I can’t imagine ever acting the way Henry’s mother acted.  Sebastian, Henry’s brother, finally has enough of his mother’s crap and calls her out.  I actually really liked that part of the book.  I will say that Henry’s mother took everything to heart and made some changes.  For the better.

Henry and Claire’s relationship moved slowly – really slowly, but it made sense given that she was a single mom.  Henry was really great with her son, Ethan.  Ethan ended up in the hospital with an emergency appendectomy and Henry was there helping out.  It was really sweet and Ethan was a really cute kid.  I really like Sebastian, who the next book is about.  Thankfully the characters kept me interested in this grammar failed book.  Look forward to the second one.
