Head Over Heels for the Boss (The Donovan Brothers #3)
by Susan Meier.
Audience/Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance.
Publication: September 14th 2015 by Entangled Publishing, LLC (Bliss).
Fantasizing about the boss is one thing. Falling in love with him is quite another…

Isabelle Cooper's in big, big trouble. Her flower shop? Well, it was just bought by the man she’s had a crush on forever. Her new boss, Devon Donovan, is a tall glass of melt-in-your-mouth hotness. The problem? Devon is definitely not interested in love. No ifs, ands, or buds about it.

Devon knows Isabelle has been crushing on him since college, but buying her business shouldn’t be a problem. Not only is she his employee, but as the eldest Donovan brother, he’s too busy protecting the family fortune for romance. But tomboy “Izzy” is all grown up now. And he’s finding it impossible to resist her, no matter how hard he tries...

Reviewed by Kelly.

Overall – I love this cute series. The issues that everyone in this series has had to overcome are endearing and make the characters so much more real, believable and loveable.

Devon is the oldest Donovan. He is the ultimate protector. Now that his abusive father is out of the picture and the Donovan’s have inherited lots of money. Everyone in the family can breathe. Everyone except Devon. He keeps moving, working, living in a certain way so that no one can hurt him again. He doesn’t believe in relationships or love. He saw how that worked for his mom. He is willing to have affairs and then walk away. The only problem with that is a cute redhead that has grown to a woman. She isn’t the girl who once asked him to the Prom when he had come back from a deployment in the military.

Isabelle’s parents sold their flower shop to the Donovan’s and they decided to retire in Myrtle Beach. Leaving Isabelle to work with Devon as part of the deal. Isabelle is the girl with the MBA who can help the Donovan’s with their money investments. Or so Devon’s brothers believe. He had no intention of allowing anyone help him with the business. He doesn’t trust. He just let his brothers believe it. But Isabelle proves to be very good at helping them and Devon finds himself trusting her. He just doesn’t see it that way. Isabelle though has always had a crush on Devon and when they both feel the chemistry; Devon proposes an affair with no one knowing. He makes it clear to Isabelle that is only an affair that can’t go anywhere. To protect him and his business, he wants Isabelle to sign an employment agreement. Isabelle doesn’t sign it but decides to go with Devon’s offer of an affair in hopes that he would come to love her. Stupid girl. I can’t believe anyone would really do that and really not think they would or could get hurt.

So begins the affair and time they both start spending together. They both start enjoying themselves in the other’s company after five pm and only working as professionals during the day. Trying to keep his large family from knowing anything except that he is seeing someone and not sharing with his family.

I love the Donovan family. For all they have been through, they care for and help each other. Their mom is getting remarried and Devon is having a hard time thinking his mom is making a good choice. He thinks that she is making another bad decision. He only finds out that she is happy and that the man his mother is marrying is a good man. Everyone is happy except Devon. He was beaten by his father and his emotional scars are deep. Isabelle is good for Devon. They are good together. They really care for each other and the chemistry and love they share is very tender and I can’t help but scream at Devon to let her in and love her back and shout it to the world!

Just like every story, there comes a point where the bottom falls out and Isabelle has had enough and won’t let her heart hurt any more. I felt the pain that Isabelle was feeling as if it were me! What Devon does surprised me. What a good man he really is!

I have read the second book so I knew some of the family before this book. I think even if I hadn’t read it I would have been okay reading this alone.

So, if you like swimming, sneaking around, fade to black intimacy, family, babies, flowers, brats, weddings, surprises, money, finding love, makeovers, overcoming abuse and letting it go, Myrtle Beach then this might just be for you.
