Review: The Rule Book by Jennifer Blackwood

****4 Stars****
Lainey finds a new job at Starr Media as a 2nd PA to Brogan Starr. A new job and in a new city kinda freaks her out but she's looking to find her way in the world as well as pay for her sick mums medical bills. 1st day and she's handed a massive folder of rules of do's and don'ts in the company. Her immediate supervisor Jackson who is Brogans main PA is standoffish and rude and treats Lainey like a dog but tells Lainey that Brogan is called the antichrist. Lainey ends up in the wrong break room and ends up chatting to a guy she thought was just a work mate, but when she tells him what the boss's nickname is then asks his own name, she is a little stunned when he replies "just call me the antichrist". Lainey manages to get through the first week breaking 7 rules but there is definitely attraction sizzling between them but can they both follow company rules?
This was definitely a witty read with plenty of humorous moments coming from both main characters. Brogans smelly farting dog made me chuckle.
I really enjoyed the storyline but I felt it was lacking something and at times it dragged on parts that weren't needed.

Starr Media Second-Assistant Survival Guide
1. Don't call your hot boss the antichrist to his face.
2. Don't stare at hot boss's, um, package or his full sleeve of tattoos. (No. Really. Stop!)
3. Don't get on the malicious first assistant's bad side.
4. Don't forget to memorize the 300-page employee manual.
5. If you value your cashmere, steer clear of boss’s dog.
6. Boss’s dimples are lust-inducing. Do. Not. Give. In.
7. “The elevator ate your clothes” is not a valid excuse for showing up to important meetings half dressed.
8. Don't break seven of the rules within the first week of employment if you, ya know, are in dire need of money to support your sick mom.
9. Whatever you do, don’t fall for the boss. See rule eight about sick mom.
10. Never forget the rules.
