Review of Weekends Required

Weekends Required is a contemporary romance novel by Syndey Landon. It’s the first book in her Danvers series.

Claire Walters has worked for Jason Danvers as his assistant for three years, but he’s never appreciated her as a woman—until the day she jumps out of a cake at his friend’s bachelor party.… Claire is forced to work a second job at a party-planning company to support her ailing mother. But when her handsome boss ends up with a front-row seat to the action, she’s mortified—and he’s intrigued.


With Danvers International in the middle of an important merger, Jason asks Claire to accompany him on weekend business trips—and suddenly, all her fantasies are coming true. Her outspoken best friend thinks that getting a little “executive attention” will solve everything. But Claire sees more in Jason than just sex. Jason is determined to know how the beautiful, sexy woman in the cake could also be his mousy assistant. The more time they spend together, the more he realizes how much fun it can be to mix business with pleasure. And how much he wants to offer her a happily ever after of her own….

  • Title: Weekends Required
  • Raina Rating: 7.5 out of 10
  • Genre: Romance

  • Series: Book 1 out of 4

Claire Walters has worked for her boss for years, and until recently, he hasn’t even realized she was a human being, let alone secretly a hottie.

Claire has fallen on hard times and had to take a part-time job to make ends meet. Only it’s not just any part-time job, she’s taken a part-time job working as the girl who jumps out of cakes at bachelor parties. I would have been fine with this storyline, but the author tries too hard to emphasize that she’s not a stripper, making way too big a deal out of it. It’s like somehow that makes her more classy? Ummm okay. Anyway, that just really rubbed me the wrong way.

Minus that part, the rest of the story was romantic and sweet. They had good chemistry, and it was a believable romance. It wasn’t the best story I’ve ever read, but it wasn’t bad, and I’ll be reading book 2 in the series.
