I loved this book, it was really good and the humor made for some very laugh out loud moments.

Morgana has given up on dating and is focusing on her career. Morgana is fun, flirty, clumsy and sexy with it. Morgana may have given up on dating but this hasn't stopped her and Payne; her boss; having a few less than work appropriate encounters, but after each one Payne pushes Morgana away. Morgana has no idea why but she takes revenge by wearing outfits that she knows will get under his skin!!

Morgana has been convinced into trying online dating and she has been chatting with one guy for a little why, they haven't swapped photo's and have no idea what the other one looks like until they decide to meet up. On the day of the meeting Morgana arrives to find...

Henrik Payne; Morgana's boss, comes across as quite the jerk! The way he treats Morgana had me hurling abuse at him several times(and cheering Morgana). But once I begun reading the parts from Payne's POV I begun to understand him a bit more, and eventually I found myself becoming quite fond of the guy!!

I'm glad Elizabeth gave me the opportunity to discover Morgana and Payne, I enjoyed getting to know them both. The swapping between their POV worked really well as I felt that I was getting to know both characters and was inside both their heads.

In such a short book the author has demonstrated her wonderful writing style, and her fantastic ability to develop the characters and to draw the reader into the plot.

Overall Rules of Payne is a great, quick, funny read.

If you're looking for a short well written, sexy, laugh out loud read then what are you waiting for? Grab yourself a copy of Rules of Payne!!!

HASH(0x9d790a38) out of 5 stars Humorous & Sexy 4 April 2015
By Xkoqueen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received a complimentary copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Rules of Payne by Elizabeth Lynx is billed as a romantic comedy, and in the parts that read like a romantic comedy it is quite funny. Ms. Lynx has inserted a number of detailed sex scenes that while key to her plot, I feel would have worked better without the detail.

The main characters Morgana Drake and Henrik Payne were introduced in a previous book, and their story will conclude in a future book. Rules of Payne is not stated to be part of a series. There is sufficient information and backstory given that reading the prior book is not completely necessary, but I think Rule of Payne might be more enjoyable if The Payne in the Blog is read first.

The chapters of the book are alternatively Morgana’s rules and then Henrik’s rules. Morgana is young and ambitious, but she lets her libido get in the way of her career plans. Her perception of Henrik Payne is rather one-dimensional, and until the story moves to Henrik’s rules, the reader doesn’t have enough backstory to appreciate his character.

The plot is quick paced, and the book is an easy read. Cake-obsessed Morgana is a cute and quirky character from the start. This 20-something must “endure” an airhead roommate who doesn’t respect personal boundaries, a family who audaciously demands her time, and a gruff boss who she simultaneously lusts for and loathes. The online dating scenes are particularly funny.

Morgana and Henrik might be brilliant retail moguls, but their personal choices lead them to one funny mishap after another. I’m looking forward to the reading the conclusion of this story.

HASH(0x9d3d6bc4) out of 5 stars On the fence... 25 Jun. 2015
By JB - Published on Amazon.com

I am usually so decisive with my thoughts on books, but not with Rules of Payne. I am seriously conflicted. I loved the premise and I’m always ready for a hot office romance, but something just didn’t totally work for me with this book. Morgana Drake is an executive assistant with a jerk for a boss. Henrik Payne is said boss. Morgana and Henrik have a bit of a sexy past, which has led to them both breaking their self-imposed rules. They can’t seem to keep away from each other and trouble ensues. This book was billed as a romantic comedy and definitely had its humorous moments. I wasn’t a huge fan of Morgana’s internal dialogues with ‘Brain’ and ‘Heart’. I know some may find that amusing but it didn’t work for me. I did like Morgana and Drake as characters. They had great chemistry and I loved how they could torment each other. There were some good steamy scenes to be sure!! The secondary characters were interesting as well, with the exception of Morgana’s roommate Aria. I just wasn’t digging her quirkiness. I kept thinking ‘who would be friends with this chick???’

I did not read The Payne in the Blog, which is a sort of pre-cursor to this book in the form of Morgana’s blog entries. It may have helped to read this so that I had a bit of background but I don’t think it was absolutely necessary.

All in all, the more I read of this book the more I became engaged….it wasn’t until around 70% that I really felt it got into the groove and then of course there is the dreaded cliffhanger. I am invested enough to read Book #2 just to see if things keep picking up. I am hoping for a lengthier book next time and a little more character development. It definitely has the potential to be a good series.

Laughing out Loud Alert!
Rules of Payne was like taking a bite of a cake and hoping it will never last.
Each bite leading to a full variety of sensations, and through this story, I was having so much fun, reading Morgana’s problems against Henrik’s rules.
One perky, hilarious and sexy red haired girl working as an assistant of the king of the Payne in everybody’s life and one hot, kinky, hot and cold boss with a tendency to become crazy just by looking at her, I was sold!!
How could I pass the opportunity to read this book after this blurb « ***WARNING - Steamy Sex Scenes - Cake addiction - Incorrect usage of the word Potatoes*** » and I knew this book was for me!

IMG_1801Morgana has a lot of problems, mostly included her boss.
Damn this girl was so efficient at work but when it comes to cake or mostly M.Payne, it was her body which took control and couldn’t stop this downward spiral. And damn she got it bad!

But each time, he closed off and she felt used, because he was a total jerk to her. They had sex and then he treated her like crap, and in these moments, I felt bad for her.
She was struggling to this sinfully and addictive sexual attraction they had, but failed!
Besides these parts, I loved her inner conversations with her brain, when we saw how she fought to decide whether or not she made the right decisions.

Well, Well, Well, Henrick Payne was the epitome of the perfect jerk boss , inside and outside the office, at first. He was bothering me in his ways to be with Morgana, but the more I read about him, the more I actually liked him.

This man was full of contradictions; playing hot and cold with Morgana, sweet, caring, funny and always in control … until her!
He has this hilarious side that you won’t suspect and it was delightful!
While Morgana’s was struggling with her problems, he was having a hard time with his rules he settled and this woman was making him break them each time. He was infatuated.
She was his addiction and he could help to surrender.

All was thrown away, and damn the sex was a festival of fireworks! Henrik was a very, very kinky man and damn it was steamy sex and it was their way to communicate when things were too hard to say. She was pushing his buttons and he couldn’t get his hands off her, like an addict!Let’s just say that the word « Potatoes » was used more than once!

This book was a very easy, quick read, with strong hilarious vibes and a lot of kinky, sexy and smoking hot sex in a lot of places!Not only Elizabeth Lynx created two great characters, with an incredible banter and chemistry, but she also wrote some second characters that you will find endearing and at the same time crazy, giving a great rhythmic to the story.
I don’t know which one was the most hilarious between Morgana or Henrik, and this book was a complete and wonderful surprise!
I forgive you Elizabeth for the cliffhanger (even if it wasn’t a big one), because I’m looking forward to read the next one from The Cake Love series! For some of you who reads The Payne In The Blog, it wasn't a repeat and I highly recommend this book!
If you’re like me after reading it and have some withdrawals, you can read Morgana’s blog.

No pressure if you don't, but I think you should! Damn I want to eat cake now!

1.5/5

Rules of Payne is a new adult or adult (I think it could go either way) romantic comedy. I didn't really love the cover of the book, but I loved the summary of the book. I am a big fan of rules to follow type books, and office romances, especially in the comedy arena because it normally will lead to some very funny scenes. And I can see where some people would enjoy that aspect of Rules of Payne, but this book really did not work for me. I am sad to say it, but if based on the summary you think it will be a hit for you- I have linked a couple of reviews from people that really Enjoyed Rules of Payne.

Rules of Payne is the first book in the Cake Love series. And yes, the main character really liked cake. I really, really wanted to like Morgana. I so did. And Payne- Morgana's boss. I liked him ok, but my real issue came with Morgana. And that is almost a kiss of death for me. I wanted her to be ambitious and quirky and witty. And she was...kind of. It is hard to pin down exactly what my issue was with Morgana. Because I couldn't connect with her and that just ruined my chances with Rules of Payne. Morgana was funny, but she just wouldn't take a breath. She was exhausting. Her conversations always read to me like "and this. and this. and this! and this!!! and and andnand and and...etc" I couldn't really get to know her because she wouldn't slow down enough to let me.

This book is a very fast read, which was a good thing because if it had been much longer I am almost positive that I wouldn't have been able to get through it. I so very much wanted this to be a fun and sexy read, but it felt more cringe worthy than fun to me. I couldn't connect with the characters and the pace of the book seemed disjointed and always at a sprint. I couldn't get into it enough to enjoy it. So not the book for me, but for those of you that like instant gratification and funny (in its' own way) stories, you may completely fall in love with the Rules of Payne and Cake Love series like the readers below. Check it out if you think you will enjoy it more than I did, and please let me know your thoughts after reading it.

*Disclaimer- I got a copy of this book for free in exchnage for my honest thoughts. I was not compensated for my thoughts.
