Catastrophe Queen by Emma Hart

One hot mess. One hot boss. One too many hot encounters…

It’s not you. It’s me.
No, seriously. It is me. Not only does my name literally mean “unfortunate,” but that’s the story of my life.

Everything I touch turns to crap. An apartment fire—that I swear I was not responsible for—means I’m living back at home with my sex-mad parents. Yay, me!

Which is why I need my new job as personal assistant to Cameron Reid to get back on my feet. Three months in this job and I can move back out and, hopefully, remember to turn off my flat iron once in a while.


On paper, my job is easy. Make coffee. Book appointments. Keep everything in order.

Until I walk in on my boss, half-naked, wearing nothing but the kind of tiny white towel that dreams are made of.

Now, nothing is easy—except our mutual attraction. But he’s my boss, and you know what they say about mixing work and pleasure: unless you do p*rn, it’s just not worth it.

Or is it?

I feel like I failed something. I am quite sad about the fact that I was not into this book as much as I wanted to be. Yes, it’s a sweet Rom-Com, nothing wrong with it, but I wanted more. I’ve had my shares of light, funny, sweet Rom-Coms, but still I wanted more substance. It made it feel too easy, too sweet. No angst, no drama, just happy feelings everywhere.

“You’d have me quit just so you can date me easily?
No, I’d fire you, but I’m not doing that. I’m letting you resign so you could date me.
I’m not going to resign.
I’m not going to fire you.
Then what the hell do we do now?
You can do whatever you like, but I’m going to kiss you.”

I am certain, it is me who’s broken, because I see the 5 stars reviews everyone keeps giving. This was one of the most expected books in 2019 and I think my expectations were too high. And what is funny is that I got so used to Alpha, arrogant, manly, rude hot boss, that it took me by surprise to see Cameron so charming. That I liked that I anticipated wrong.

Mallory, I loved her name. I love male names to female leads! Her family was so funny and outrageous, that you are happy with a less obnoxious one like mine. She’s such a klutz that she’d trip on thin air. Also quite a sweet girl.

” I’d expected to get fired. Instead, I’d gotten kissed.”

Again, I am sorry for being this confused about this book, but I cannot be excited on something that was not doing it for me. But it still is an easy, sweet, lovely read, and based on other’s reviews, people dig this more than me.
