    1. "I'll give it to you straight. I want no female emotionalism in this office. We get on with the job. That's it. Do I make myself clear?"Ann stared back at him fiercely, wanting to cut him down to size. He was her employer and she wanted nothing-absolutely nothing-of a more personal nature from him.-"I'm sure I won't trouble you, sir. Actually, I prefer younger men."POW! And just like that, the gloves were on, the two contestants started circling each other in the ring, and the first of many gorg [...]

    2. 50% in: Hey I like this! A lot!75% in: Oh wow, I love this!This heroine did not miss a step. She did everything perfectly right, just the way I wanted her to. I loved her so much! And her hilariously old-school-chauvinistic boor of a sexy boss was alternately infuriating and adorable in the way only a big, rude, macho sweetheart can be.So Ann is one of those sexy-but-hiding-it-under-dowdy-clothes personal assistants, and Matt is one of those don't-fall-in-love-with-me-or-you're-fired bosses. Old [...]

    3. This was adorable - from the personal assistant heroine spiking the head honcho hero's guns with the frilled dress shirt to the underwear fiasco. The dialogue was sparkling and the characters well-rounded. There are a lot of great reviews for this one, so I won't go into the plot, but I will say how much I liked how the author handled the mommy/daddy issues. The heroine was still reeling from her mother's notorious death - in fact, she was embarrassed by it and that prolonged her grieving. I lik [...]

    4. I always enjoy an Emma Darcy romance. Especially the earlier vintage work. This was no exception. A young successful woman finds employment with Mr. Gorgeous when she quits her job after being sexually harassed. Of course, new boss (Mr. Gorgeous) warns her to make sure she doesn't fall in love with him, like the last three PAs he had to fire. Since our heroine goes out of her way to avoid any sort of non-professional encounter with him, this shouldn't be a problem. Furthermore since she purposel [...]

    5. Rating 3.5The heroine was quite spunky in this and had a habit of getting the upper hand with the hero, her boss. She left her last job because of sexual harassment and started dressing in an unflattering manner at work and she kept putting the hero in his place, first by saying she preferred younger men and then when one of his lovers called, kind of making fun of his sexual prowess and when he told her to shop for him, buying outrageous stuff. She had a habit of taking things the wrong way and [...]

    6. I really enjoyed this book. I liked that the heroine would not allow the H, her boss, to treat her with disrespect. She was a little passive/agressive in her reactions to his unreasonable demands but the situation warranted it. If she had actively confronted his chauvinistic behaviors she would have lost her job. She always put him in his place by complying with what he asked but with an attitude that ensured he would not be pleased with the outcome.Both the H and the h had issues that interfere [...]

    8. A re-read for me and still holds up with respect to the contents. Heroine was sexually harassed and now has a method to avoid that in her new job but realizes that she was not being true to herself. 'Course the H realizes that and loves the h for her brains. HEA!

    9. This was such a delightful story. I loved both Matt and Ann. Really enjoyed it a lot. Definitely one of my favorites. Thank you Leona for the recommendation. I didn't want to stop reading the book. I didn't want to say goodbye to Matt who was adorable and behaved quite well and Ann who gave it back to him splendidly! I am going to read the other books of Emma Darcy that you have sent me and I am going to forget the nightmare I had when I read the other book by Emma Darcy. Please throw any more g [...]

    10. This is how I rate romance novels. On one end of the spectrum, there is your typical vanilla romance and on the other, there is simply disgusting porn. And in the middle is mind sex, which is where Pattern of Deceit lands. I loved the heroine, Angel Carmody, in this surprising novel. She was smart, beautiful, funny and not a shrew( I hate shrews in romance). They was not a lot of body contact between H and h but let me tell you, they made passionate love throughout the whole book. Love that. Rea [...]

    11. Holy shit, this was an emotional roller-coaster from start to finish. I find a common pattern (hah!) in 80's books is that everything is very over-the-top. Exaggerated reactions, implausible plots and characters that are archetypes more than people. This book was written in the late 1980's and it shows. There's a strong undercurrent of sexism and slut-shaming, but hey, I knew what I was getting into and was able to read past it and enjoy the story. Ann, the heroine, works as a personal assistant [...]

    12. I really enjoy Vintage Romances with an office set-up and this was no exception. When I started this book, I felt maybe I have already read this one but as the story progressed, it was different from the other office romances I have read this far.The H was a male chauvinist pig but at the end I really liked how he came to care for the h as a person and how he encouraged and supported her to achieve her dreams.Also, apart from the romance there was a background story of the h's life, the effect i [...]

    13. I had fun reading this one. I liked the characters and their spunk. I couldn't wait to see what the next battle of wills were to next. I liked the insight and images. The ending was a good blend of true self and a leap of faith. I liked the courage and the mutual support at the end too. The true ending was touching and left a small smile on my face. I would enjoy reading this again, a good anytime book for relaxing and/or escapism. Enjoy
