Review: The Director and the Don Juan by Katy Regnery

The Director and the Don Juan
By: Katy Regnery
Series: The Story Sisters #2
Release Date: June 30, 2017


From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes a brand new series set on Blueberry Lane!

The Director and Don Juan is the second of four books about the Philadelphia-based Story sisters who are all on the look-out for love.

Heiress Alice Story left her father's company three years ago in a blaze of glory, inviting all of his employees to jump ship and join her, but only one accepted her offer: mail room clerk, Carlos Vega.

While Alice spent the next three years getting her own company off the ground, Carlos became her indispensable right-hand man -- executive assistant and office manager, loyal counsel and trusted co-worker.

And all the while, they were quietly falling in love with each other.

When Alice is offered a lucrative business deal in Puerto Rico, island-born Carlos is the perfect person to accompany her on her trip as translator, but as they travel together from Philadelphia to Santo Domingo to Ponce, two unlikely co-workers will discover that during their three years working together, their feelings for each other have grown far deeper than they ever could have guessed.

And though business-minded, proper Alice will try her very best to ignore the longings of her heart, scorching hot, insanely sexy Boricua, Carlos, has no intention of letting her go.
'The Director and the Don Juan' was an enchanting read that I flew through in a day. I didn't want to put it down. Alice and Carlos have been working together for three years since she jumped ship from her father's business and started her own company - with Carlos faithfully by her side, sharing the ups and downs. Never have the two mixed business with pleasure, though their mutual respect has only gotten better. Unbeknownst to them, deeper feelings of love have also been growing and developing. And with an unexpected business trip, the two must finally face their feelings, and the risks involved with actually pursuing a relationship or not.

I loved Carlos and Alice's love story. Sure, there were some hiccups along the way. Three years seems like a long time to develop hidden feelings, but really, they both needed to grow on their own, and mature in their own ways. There is an age gap, but for me it was not a problem. Carlos had the opportunity to see the different options for his life, despite his younger age, and I loved his perspective and maturity in deciding what he really wanted. Alice had to take risks as well, holding the responsibilty of being Carlos's boss as well as older than him. But put these two together, with their mutual respect, all-encompassing trust, and deep love for the other, and you get a perfect match. Their love story was sweet and spicy and I loved them. I needed a second epilogue, because I like them so much as a couple and want to see their future.
