My new boss likes rules, but there’s one nobody dares to break…
No touching his banana.
Seriously. The guy is like a potassium addict.
Of course, I touched it.
If you want to get technical, I actually put it in my mouth.
I chewed it up, too… I even swallowed.
I know. Bad, bad, girl.
Then I saw him, and believe it or not, choking on a guy’s banana does not make the best first impression.
I should backtrack a little here. Before I ever touched a billionaire’s banana, I got my first real assignment as a business reporter. This wasn’t the same old bottom-of-the-barrel assignment I always got. I wasn’t going to interview a garbage man about his favorite routes or write a piece on how picking up dog poop from people’s yards is the next big thing.
Nope. None of the above, thank you very much.
This was my big break. My chance to prove I wasn’t a bumbling, clumsy, accident-prone walking disaster. I was infiltrating Galleon Enterprises to follow up on suspicions of corruption.
Cue the James Bond music.
I could do this. All I had to do was land the position as an intern and nail my interview with Bruce Chamberson.
Forget the fact that he looked like somebody carved him out of liquid female desire, then sprinkled on some “makes men question their sexuality” for good measure. I needed to make this work. No accidents. No disasters. No clumsiness. All I needed to do was hold it together for less than an hour.
Fast forward to the conference room before the interview, and that’s where you would find me with a banana in my hand. A banana that literally had his name on it in big, black sharpie. It was a few seconds later when he walked in and caught me yellow-handed. A few seconds after that was when he hired me.
Yeah. I know. It didn’t seem like a good sign to me, either.
“They say you know a guy is the one when he gives you the last bite of his favorite meal.”
This was my first book by Penelope Bloom and it’s different from her other books( she said it herself at the end of this book ;-P , I’ve yet to confirm).
So if you haven’t read anything from her and want to start with funny, romantic and light then this is the book. But if you want dark and serious try her other books.
His Banana is first in the series ‘Objects of Attraction’. It is ‘laughing out loud‘ and ‘rolling on floor laughing‘ funny. Believe me when I say I still can’t get over the coffee incident.
He still wore that gorgeous smile as he looked down at me and set his coffee on the table. “So,” he said. “Is that what you’d like me to call you instead of intern? Sugar. “
Bruce Chamberson is co-owner of Galleon. He is organised and has borderline OCD. He like things at their particular place and particular time, specifically his banana XD.
Natasha was the chaos he never expected. She is prone to disaster like stubbing her toe, tripping on an invisible object.
“Tell me then, Intern. How exactly do you plan to charm me? Is it with your work ethic? Your tendency to take things that belong to other people and put them in your mouth? Or is it that you think you’ll seduce me?”
I gripped the handle and pulled but the door didn’t budge. I made a sound between a nervous laugh and a grunt of desperation and pulled harder. I gave it three more firm tugs before I stepped back, huffed at the door, and then turned to look at Bruce with a helpless expression.
He got up, walked to the door, and pushed.
He hired her as a way to punish her and that is when his schedule went out the window. She was never on time(since I already told you she is prone to disaster), never got his banana ripped enough, spilled coffee on him and dented town car. But Natasha was exactly what he needed in his life.
I wasn’t even confident that a single spare outfit would be enough with this woman rampaging around in my life.
I know I’m a little late to discover this gem but so glad I did. So just read it if you haven’t already!!! And if you have then do share your opinions, thoughts with me.
