Overview

Claire Walters has worked for Jason Danvers as his assistant for three years, but he’s never appreciated her as a woman—until the day she jumps out of a cake at his friend’s bachelor party.…

To support her ailing mother, Claire is forced to work a second job at a party-planning company. But when her handsome boss ends up with a front-row seat to the action, she’s mortified—and he’s intrigued.

With Danvers International in the middle of an important merger, Jason asks Claire to accompany him on weekend business trips—and suddenly all her fantasies are coming true. Her outspoken best friend thinks that getting a little “executive attention” will solve everything. But Claire sees more in Jason than just sex.

Jason is determined to know how the beautiful, sexy woman in the cake could also be his mousy assistant. The more time they spend together, the more he realizes how much fun it can be to mix business with pleasure. And how much he wants to offer her a happily ever after of her own….

    This was the first book I have read by this author, but it won't be the last. I fell in love with Claire and Jason and I can't wait to read Suzy's story. Such fun characters. I hope this series go on for a while. The Myrtle Beach setting was great.

    Painful

    Liked the premise of the story....but the writing style was painful. I dislike being told. I want descriptions that engage the mind, not a step by step. Let me visualize how it is! I made it 120 pages before irritation got the best of me

    Depends what you're looking for...

    Whoa! The critics are out in full force for this one! The reviews all make valid points... the storyline is sweet, but not believable (what romance novel is believable anyway? Like Fifty Shades was? Please!) And the writing is far from stellar, but if you want something intellectually stimulating, read Tolstoy and not a cheap romance novel. Weekends Only is a quick read with likeable characters and a fun plot. It's predictable, yes, but so what? Its a fun summer read that doesn't require alot of attention. Its sexy and sweet and tough to put down. I recommend it for an airline flight or for sitting by the pool; just dont make it your next Book Club headliner or you'll end up with little conversation at the next meeting!

    Terrible

    Horrible waste of money and time. Reads like it was written by a 12 year old trying to use every phrase she read in adult romance novels and fails miserably. If your looking dor 480ish pages of skimable crap this is it.

    Ugh

    I forced myself to finish this for two reasons: I finish what I start, and I was waiting for it to get better.

    While the premise was promising...

    The actual writing was immature-ish.
    The characters were one-dimensional.
    It annoys me when writers use "piqued" interchangeably with "peaked."
    How is she this shy chick yet jumps out of cakes in lingerie?
    I think the author was going for the alpha-male complex with Jason, but instead he comes off as a weak jerk.
    The dialogue, what there was between h/h, was totally unrealistic. The author relied on sex instead of actual conversation.
    The book pretty much read like a walking cliche.

    Overall, I wasnt impressed with this offering. I feel there was tremendous possibility, but the suthor would have benefitted greatly from more than a friend's read-through. Im not sure what other people reviewing here generally read, but this is far from professional, and something my 14-year-old niece might write.

    Pretty darn good!

    I really enjoyed this book by Sudney Landon. It was well over 400 pages, but I finished it in a day. Really fast read. I came to love the characters - not just Claire + Jason - all of them, even her mother + Louise. I am excited for the other Danvers Novels to debut; the next being from Suzy's perspective which will be kind of fun. If you enjoyed other romance novels like 50 Shades + The Marriage Bargain, you'll love Weekends Required. It's sweet and sexy with a great little story. And so affordable. Come on!

    Good book

    I read this in one day because I couldn't put it down. Im reading the next in the series which is just as good.

    However, I always read reviews before purchasing and was extremely disapointed to see someone complaining about the book and told the whole plot.

    It is one thing to have an opinion but do not ruin it for others. They also must have liked it to a degree to go through the process of reading the whole book and going through the trouble of posting about it to ruin it for others.

    Cute story, poorly written

    This book reminded me of why I read instead of write. It was a cute story, but was painful to read.

    Really Good

    I really loved this book. It has been one of my favorites! Im confused that some people have wrote poor reviews. I really have to have something to keep my attention to like the book in each chapter. This book went way passed the excitement in each chapter. I found myself not putting the book down,because I needed to know what was coming or what was going to happen. Why cant I find a JASON like this! This book had it all - it made me laugh, cry, in suspense, and in love. Youll love this book.

    Pick something else

    Found myself skipping pages and i never do that. Conflict btwn the love interests were predictable, ridiculous, and eye roll worthy.

    This book was terrible, the writing style is horrific. If you can get past that, the storyline is pretty cute.

    Lots of Fun!

    I really enjoyed this book. First of hers that I have read and went right to the next book in the series. Many layers to these characters and plenty of heat. Funny situations.
