His Bananaby Published 16 Jul 2018
My new boss likes rules, but there's one nobody dares to break...
No touching his banana.
Seriously. The guy is like a potassium addict.
Of course, I touched it.
If you want to get technical, I actually put it in my mouth.
I chewed it up, too... I even swallowed.
I know. Bad, bad, girl.
Then I saw him, and believe it or not, choking on a guy's banana does not make the best first impression.
I should backtrack a little here. Before I ever touched a billionaire’s banana, I got my first real assignment as a business reporter. This wasn’t the same old bottom-of-the-barrel assignment I always got. I wasn’t going to interview a garbage man about his favorite routes or write a piece on how picking up dog poop from people’s yards is the next big thing.
Nope. None of the above, thank you very much.
This was my big break. My chance to prove I wasn’t a bumbling, clumsy, accident-prone walking disaster. I was infiltrating Galleon Enterprises to follow up on suspicions of corruption.
Cue the James Bond music.
I could do this. All I had to do was land the position as an intern and nail my interview with Bruce Chamberson.
Forget the fact that he looked like somebody carved him out of liquid female desire, then sprinkled on some "makes men question their sexuality" for good measure. I needed to make this work. No accidents. No disasters. No clumsiness. All I needed to do was hold it together for less than an hour.
Fast forward to the conference room before the interview, and that's where you would find me with a banana in my hand. A banana that literally had his name on it in big, black sharpie. It was a few seconds later when he walked in and caught me yellow-handed. A few seconds after that was when he hired me.
Yeah. I know. It didn't seem like a good sign to me, either.
"His Banana" Reviews
Insta 💘Love and The Big 🍌Banana
Seducing The Angry Sex God.....
Natasha💃💋 is a screw up prone reporter for a business magazine, and she is barely hanging on in NYC. Her boss usually gives her the worst assignments. She is still working there after three years, despite all her life mistakes, lateness, and wrong turns.
She gets a good assignment she thinks, to go to Galleon Enterprises and get hired as an intern. Then she is supposed to dig up dirt on the company and its owners, handsome twins, Bruce and William Chamberson.
The twins are alike in looks but as different as 🌙night and
Day🌞 in personalities. Bruce🐺 is uptight, regimented, and serious. William🐺🍆🌋 is a fun loving womanizer who doesn't sweat the small stuff. He's often late. Every young woman is a conquest.
Bruce🐺 is always on time. Bruce exercises and eats a regimented diet every day which includes a 🍌banana for his taste of sugar. It's left in the employee break room with his name written on it. NO ONE IS TO TOUCH IT.
On her first day, Bruce🐺 strolls in to catch Natasha💃💋 already halfway through eating HIS 🍌banana. Instead of firing her, he assigns her to bring a 🍌banana to his office every morning. He is kind of drawn to Natasha💃💋, for some reason.
Natasha is definitely drawn to Bruce🐺🍆🌋 He's super model handsome, tall, and jacked💪, too! His blue eyes are ice cold, and he's taking her measure. Does a normal hot blooded guy🐺🍆🌋 exist under that impeccably tailored suit?
I think Natasha💃💋 is gonna find out!

I also got The book📑 with KU.
💘Love this book! The sexual innuendos fly fast and furious, especially out of William's 👄mouth. It's a fun, well written, and very enjoyable book, as readers should be able to figure out from the cover! Recommend.
You should know that just by the title that this is not a deep, dark, oozing romance. Noooo. This is LOL stuff. The writing, the dialogue is priceless. So thank you, thank you, thank you, Ms. Penelope Bloom. You have given us a story that, on every page I either laughed out loud or smiled. The chemistry you created between Natasha and Bruce was spot on. His neurosis, which could be debilitating, you've gently allowed him to see the healthy side of it.
Now, your task, should you choose to accept, is twofold: 1) Write a book two (at least). I want more of Natasha and Bruce. 2) Write about Bruce's twin brother, William. He seems like a wild child and I would love to read about his life up close and personal.
I have never recommended a book so highly as I recommend this book for everyone's reading pleasure and enjoyment. This is a perfect story for vacation, sunbathing, or just chilling on the beach with a luscious cocktail. Salute!
(Note: I was provided an Advanced Review Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)
When I saw the title, the cover, the blurb and the high rating I had to read. For me this was just ok. It's a pretty common trope (reporter falls for the person they are investigating) and I've seen it done a lot better. The writing wasn't bad I just needed more. I feel that author needed to flush out the story more some parts move faster than they should. Also all the "conflict" in the book is never really developed and is resolved too easily. I feel this had the skeleton to be a good book but in the end just didn't do it for me. Oh well! I liked the whole banana thing though !
This book had a lot of potential because the beginning was pretty funny. Once the girl started working for Bruce things became less believable as bland. I lost interest and had no desire to pick up the book and keep going. I made it to 74%. If I don’t read the entire book in 2-3 days it’s just not for me.
***DNF*** I really wish I could press on through this book to see what all the hype is about but I can't get past chapter 5. What is it with every new romance novel portraying the heroine as a bumbling fool and calling that attractive? In what world is publicly verbally attacking the CEO of the company you work for ok? I guess the same world in which it's ok for said CEO to continuously make sexual comments to his intern (btw, CEOs don't have interns)? She spills stuff on him, dents the company car, arrives late, stumbles everywhere, and the thing is, she doesn't give a darn. She doesn't even try to be professional. That's not cute... it's inconsiderate and incompetent. Not to mention that the entire premise of going undercover for a news story is unethical these days, even for investigative reporters (which she is not). And I'm not going to even get into how the head of this major organization has time to spend his entire day devising ways to drive an INTERN to quit. That's just... never mind... SMH...
I really tried to get past all of that to get to the actual story (I made it to page 43, surely, with all the 5 stars, it gets better). But then the intern is invited to an important business meeting with the CEO (um, what?!?! are there no VPs or even managers at this company?!?!?) and makes the conscious decision to get drunk in order to teach her boss a lesson (after undermining him in front of the clients). Come on! As someone who's fought hard to be respected in corporate America for decades, I'll literally gouge my eyes out when the CEO and/or the clients inevitably find this behavior charming and endearing. So I didn't turn the page.
I really, really, really wish someone (anyone) would write a romcom about a woman who values herself, works hard in life, AND somehow still gets the guy. How is it that the older I get, the worse women are portrayed? At least Cinderella and Snow White worked their butts off when they had to... and they chose guys who didn't continuously hurt them over and over again. That makes way more sense than this. Is Disney on Kindle Unlimited lol?
