Contemporary stories generally are not my thing but occasionally one pops up that says ‘you just have to read me’. Henry just so happens to be one of those particular stories, I was worried at first that I would be eventually get bored out of my gourd but it never happened. In 227 pages Andria Large was able to build a plausible and sound relationship between to people who deserve to find each other.

I really liked Henry and Claire but I absolutely loved little Ethan, the precocious 2 year old. I also very much liked Henry’s brothers and father as well Claire’s dad. I do, however, have my doubts about his mother and will reserve judgment for the somewhere later into the series, when I get to it.

There were a few places where some editing could come in handy and are the main reason for my decision to give Henry a 4 star rating rather than a 5 star rating. If Andria Large ever does an edited second edition I will be happy to revisit Henry for re-evaluation of this rating decision.

Heat Rating
The first half of Henry is a slow build to a friendship and pretty dry sex wise. When the sex finally does enter the equation you will know it’s there but it wont really send any steam rising off your e-reader, and thankfully it does not dominate there entire last half of the book stealing from a pretty good story.

Book Cover
This cover is decidedly better than the first cover attached to Henry. I am not sure that the plane actually fits because there is only one instance in the story where a plane comes into play.

Book’s Blurb
Henry Beck, the gorgeous CEO of an advertising company, was in need of a new personal assistant. He expected HR to hire someone older, more experienced, maybe even with gray hair. Who he got instead was the beautiful, young, single mother – Claire Russell. A woman who he is having a hard time keeping his eyes off of…

Claire never expected her new boss to be the most gorgeous man she’s ever laid eyes on. She also never expected him to be sweet to her two year old son, Ethan. But Henry is her boss and there is no future with him. Or so Claire thinks…

Will Henry and Claire be able to fight the obvious attraction between them? Will Henry’s overbearing mother come between them? Or will a freak accident change their perspectives on life and what’s most important.
