ABOUT CATASTROPHE QUEEN
It’s not you. It’s me.
No, seriously. It is me. Not only does my name literally mean “unfortunate,” but that’s the story of my life.
Everything I touch turns to cr*p. An apartment fire—that I swear I was not responsible for—means I’m living back at home with my s*x-mad parents. Yay, me!
Which is why I need my new job as personal assistant to Cameron Reid to get back on my feet. Three months in this job and I can move back out and, hopefully, remember to turn off my flat iron once in a while.
On paper, my job is easy. Make coffee. Book appointments. Keep everything in order.
Until I walk in on my boss, half-naked, wearing nothing but the kind of tiny white towel that dreams are made of.
Now, nothing is easy—except our mutual attraction. But he’s my boss, and you know what they say about mixing work and pleasure: unless you do p*rn, it’s just not worth it.
Or is it?

It all started with an awkward encounter with THE boss and the WOULD-BE personal assistant…
Emma Hart hits it big with her latest release, Catastrophe Queen, and making it my first five star read for the year 2019. With the perfect dose of romance and comedic scenes, this book and its characters easily wormed its way into my fluffy heart. I love the lightness, fluffiness, quirkiness, humor, sarcasm and everything else about it.
“I don’t like it described any way, but if you ask Jade, I’m either a hot mess, a walking disaster, or a catastrophe queen.”
Reading Catastrophe Queen was certainly a breeze. With an exciting and interesting start, you won’t help it but to look forward on how things will unfold. You need to know how Mallory and Cameron first met…lol. It’s definitely one for the books.
Mallory aka Hurricane Mallory aka our Catastrophe Queen, well from those names given what would you expect? She stumble from the littlest of things, clumsy yet super adorable while at it. On the other hand, we have Cameron, a sexy and accomplished bachelor. Her boss. They quite have an unconventional office system/atmosphere since for the most part they only interact with themselves. Phone calls here, client and viewings there. That certainly helped in building their relationship. They got to know each other as boss and assistant then later on, on a deeper and a lot more personal level.
“I’d expected to get fired. Instead, I’d gotten kissed.”
I don’t know how to properly describe it. You see the story may be fast paced but everything that happened between Hurricane Mallory and Cameron was a natural occurrence. You know they click. You just know they are supposed to be together. I’m happy they took their time and it was so refreshing to read. The build up of their relationship is tastefully done with a lot of playfulness and a sprinkle of slow buuurn in it. Hart made slow burn work for such a fast paced story, huh.
I love it.
“She blows through like a hurricane wherever she goes. She even gave me a list of demands for tonight which blew my plans apart.”
Bonus, crazy and old relatives. *winks*
Catastrophe Queen by Emma Hart is such a light and refreshing take on the boss x assistant trope. If you’re fond of that, then you might as well check this book out. There are lots of scenes that cracked me up so much, banters that really won me over and of course a chemistry that will tease you.
