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.
"His Banana (Objects of Attraction, #1)" Reviews
His yellow banana
This is the first book by this author. The concept was hilarious. All I can see as she bit his 🍌 I laughed and laughed. The look on his face and he said. My name is on it. You will love this book. Her cherry is next.
Its not that it was bad per say, but its more because nothing was original, characters didn't hold my attention and there was no reason to finish the rest of it because this has been written so many times before.
***DNF*** I really wish I could press on through this book to see what all the hype is about but I can't get past chapter 5. What is it with every new romance novel portraying the heroine as a bumbling fool and calling that attractive? In what world is publicly verbally attacking the CEO of the company you work for ok? I guess the same world in which it's ok for said CEO to continuously make sexual comments to his intern (btw, CEOs don't have interns)? She spills stuff on him, dents the company car, arrives late, stumbles everywhere, and the thing is, she doesn't give a darn. She doesn't even try to be professional. That's not cute... it's inconsiderate and incompetent. Not to mention that the entire premise of going undercover for a news story is unethical these days, even for investigative reporters (which she is not). And I'm not going to even get into how the head of this major organization has time to spend his entire day devising ways to drive an INTERN to quit. That's just... never mind... SMH...
I really tried to get past all of that to get to the actual story (I made it to page 43, surely, with all the 5 stars, it gets better). But then the intern is invited to an important business meeting with the CEO (um, what?!?! are there no VPs or even managers at this company?!?!?) and makes the conscious decision to get drunk in order to teach her boss a lesson (after undermining him in front of the clients). Come on! As someone who's fought hard to be respected in corporate America for decades, I'll literally gouge my eyes out when the CEO and/or the clients inevitably find this behavior charming and endearing. So I didn't turn the page.
I really, really, really wish someone (anyone) would write a romcom about a woman who values herself, works hard in life, AND somehow still gets the guy. How is it that the older I get, the worse women are portrayed? At least Cinderella and Snow White worked their butts off when they had to... and they chose guys who didn't continuously hurt them over and over again. That makes way more sense than this. Is Disney on Kindle Unlimited lol?
When I saw the title, the cover, the blurb and the high rating I had to read. For me this was just ok. It's a pretty common trope (reporter falls for the person they are investigating) and I've seen it done a lot better. The writing wasn't bad I just needed more. I feel that author needed to flush out the story more some parts move faster than they should. Also all the "conflict" in the book is never really developed and is resolved too easily. I feel this had the skeleton to be a good book but in the end just didn't do it for me. Oh well! I liked the whole banana thing though !
I wanted to read something light and funny after the last two emotional books I read, so I found this. It was perfect to pull me out of my depressed reading stage. The writing flowed and we got good insight into the characters' minds. It was a slow burning love with the sex scene only towards the end. Always nice when there's an actual story and not just lots of sexy times.
The realism of the story is debatable, but this is fiction and I read it for entertainment. I mean, even the cover and title of the book aren't something that can be taken seriously. So if you accept the absurdity of the situations, you'll enjoy the funniness of it.
There was good banter between the hero/heroine and the descriptions were great too. The hero's brother, William, cracked me up. The heroine's brother, Braeden, made me shake my head. The story with the ex gave it an extra something, but I'm not sure it made a difference to the story. From the couple of interactions with the ex's daughter, it wasn't clear how much the hero and the little girl meant to each other. They'd hug and then go do something else. If that was supposed to be an important factor in the story, it could have been explored more.
On a different note, the heroine is supposed to be sexually inexperienced, but knows how to please a man orally like a champ. She said she didn't watch porn, so how would she even know what to do? She'd only had sex once for a few minutes. I would have expected her to be more awkward in the bedroom, but she apparently was a natural.
Apart from that, the story was interesting, had me laughing out loud a few times, and kept me reading well into the night. And I didn't mind the countless references to his banana throughout the book. It's was silly book that made banana jokes. I liked it.
