Morgana Drake has some problems in her life.
Problem #1: She has a boss she hates. Truth be told everyone at her company hates him, he’s a jerk.
Problem #2: Morgana fantasizes and has sex dreams about her awful boss because he is just sooo good looking. She may have done a lot more than fantasize, but please don't tell anyone.
Problem #3: She wants to get into her company’s Executive Development Program, but there is one thing standing in her way. You guessed it, her boss.
Problem #4: Morgana needs to get laid by someone other than her boss. She feels if she likes someone else she will stop lusting after Henrik Payne.
Henrik Payne is very serious about his job. He has worked hard for over ten years to become VP of Sales and Marketing and make Mimir the third largest online retailer. He has rules he follows to make sure the company and his life run smoothly.
Rule #1: Know the company from the ground up and the people who make this place great.
Rule #2: Don’t do anything that might negatively affect the company or him.
Rule #3: It’s best not to date women. If he does, they are to be kept at a distance. Emotions cloud judgment and can cause harm to the company if he is with the wrong woman and reveals too much.
Rule #4: Don’t drink. It weakens people's resolve, makes them act ridiculous and can make them do horrible things. Things that can’t be undone.
So, why does he keep breaking all his rules?

~My 5* Review~
Disclaimer: I received a free ecopy in exchange for nothing more than an honest review. All the thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
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 Elizabeth 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. I can not wait to get my hands on the sequel. *stares at Ms Lynx expectantly*
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!!!
(WARNING: there is a cliffhanger at the end)!!

~About The Author~
Elizabeth Lynx is not a robot, that’s for sure. At least she says she’s not. She is also not a space alien. How do I know this, because she was born in Baltimore Maryland in the 1970’s when no one wanted to be in Baltimore Maryland so why would her parents say that if it weren't true. Of course she has had her suspicions growing up and is still in a continual search for evidence that backs up her space age theories.
To bide her time she writes about ‘normal’ people and their sexy romantic lives. Her husband chooses to put up with her theories and paranoid musings. Her two little boys help her see that perhaps she isn't an alien but more of a climbing rock. This theory is new, so she needs more time to develop it further.
