Product Description

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.

Katy Regnery delivers yet another amazing romance.

This time it’s the story of Alice Story and Carlos Vega.

Firstly, I love the Story sisters. They are a group of amazingly strong women, who have fought through the adversity of having a very old fashioned father and practically no mother figure.

Alice was determined to win her father’s affection even though he made it well known that he wished she was a boy from birth. She stood by his side for multiple years and even went to prestigious colleges to ensure her shot at running Story Imports. But this was to no avail as after four years, he still didn’t promote her into a managerial role, stating that she needed to find a man to marry who would run the company for her.

Alice became fed up at this point and made a stand. She bravely stood up on a desk at her father’s offices and basically said that she was going to open up her own beverage import-export company and invited any and all to join her. The only person brave enough to do so was the mail clerk, Carlos.

The love story between Alice and Carlos was long coming and came about as almost a slap in the face to Alice. All of a sudden she found herself in a position to go to the Caribbean with him for a week long business trip and suddenly, these feelings just started popping up out of nowhere. Alice didn’t know what to do and had learned through college that having a relationship with a fellow worker just wouldn’t work.

Their business trip turns out to be the culminating part for their story and I loved how Carlos stood up for himself and wouldn’t back down from his feelings for Alice. Carlos is the definition of suave and is so sweet. Alice is as hard headed as ever but finally sees the joys of someone else taking the reigns for awhile even if it just in romance.

I loved this book as I love all of Katy’s books.

I definitely would recommend this series and this book to all readers.

What an exhilarating and passionate read! Alice Story and Carlos Vega, two people I would love to sit down and chat over coffee with.

Their stories fascinated and thrilled me. Alice up and left her father’s company three years ago and when she left, she announced anyone who no longer wanted to work for a man like her father could come with her. Only one person took up her offer, Carlos Vega. For three years they worked side by side. One is refusing to admit that they have feelings and the other not daring to hope that their feelings will ever be reciprocated. I adored the will they, won’t they of this book; but at the same time it frustrated me to no end.

“You haven’t answered my question yet,”
“Does it matter?”
“I…it shouldn’t”

“No,”
“You’re my employer; it’s none of my business.”

Carlos Vega has become a strong contender for my favourite Book Boyfriend of the year to date. I loved how true to his roots he was, and how he waited for Alice.

“For the record? Your ass beats Ana Maria’s any day and twice on Sunday.”
“Is that right?”
“This is one hundred percent a fact, mami.”
“Mami?”
“It’s slang. Like, sarcastic, truth-slang.”
“So you’re not really calling me ‘mommy’.”
“Alice, when I call you ‘baby’ later, it won’t have nothin’ to do with me seein’ you as a child either.”
“Are you going to call me ‘baby’?”

“I been there, mami. Just waitin’ for you to come join me.”

In most romance novels there is straight forward method to the story. The Director and Don Juan didn’t follow that path. The starting of Alice and Carlos’ relationship took a considerably large part of the story to get to.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Huge Swoony Latin Hero Stars!!!! 27 June 2017
By wdelg4 - Published on Amazon.com

I’m absolutely in love with this book. This was not only a super-fast read for me, it’s also swoony, hot, sweet, funny and full of feels! I can’t even with how much I loved it. Katy Regnery already has one of my favorite books of the year with Don’t Speak and The Director and Don Juan is definitely joining the favorites list for 2017.

I mean, who can resist a mega hot, mega swoony Puertorican hero, right? Well, I have to say that when it comes to books about Hispanic heroes or heroines, I often hesitate. I’m extremely picky with Hispanic themed books written by non-Hispanic authors. It sounds horrible, I know, but when you venture into writing about a topic or in this case a culture that is not yours, you might not always get it right. And just like I would pick apart a book about lawyers, or government because of my work line, a book about Hispanics that doesn’t get it right is a total turn off for me. It’s not unheard of though, my fellow bloggers will tell you that they tend to stay away from books about topics they know and understand because they fear about the author not getting it right.

So, on the interest of full disclosure, I did some cultural beta work on this one. I’ve never worked with her before but I love her books, so when Katy asked, I had to jump in. And let me tell you something, Katy just nails it! Not only did she had the right approach and idea from the get go, she truly listened to the feedback and incorporated it like a boss, which elevated this book to the next level! I’m so proud of Katy, and of this book. And you know me, honest is my middle name. Carlos is just a perfect, authentic, macho Boricua! And since I have my own wonderful, awesome, beautiful puertorrican man at home, I’m a self-proclaimed expert on this topic, lol.

“That is one hundred percent a fact, mami.”
“Mami?”
“It’s slang. Like, sarcastic, truth-slang.”
“So you’re not really calling me mommy.”
“Alice, when I call you “baby” later, it won’t have nothin’ to do with seein’ you as a child either.”
“Are you going to call me baby?” she asked.
He nodded. “Hell, yes.”
“When would that be?”
“When you’re lyin’ beneath me…baby.”
Her neck jerked and she faced him with wide eyes. “Whoa. You just went there.”
“I been there, mami. Just waitin’ for you to come join me.”
“Damn,” she breathed, speeding up, pulling away from him.
Nope. Not happening. He dug deep and gained on her.
“Stop runnin’ away from me.”

See? Nailed it!

I know, I’m all over the place with this review. Tends to happen a lot when I really love a book. So, let’s talk about the book. The Director and Don Juan is book 2 in the Story Sisters series. The story centers around Alice Story, who left her father’s company to start her own company from the bottom up. When she left her dad’s company, she invited all of his employees to go with her (kinda Jerry Maguire-ish) and Carlos, who worked in the mailroom, is the only one that joined her. Now 3 years later, her company is flourishing and Carlos has become an irreplaceable presence in her work life...and maybe so much more. When they find each other alone away in a business trip to the Caribbean it might be time to explore those feelings that have been growing between them for years!

I loved everything about this book. The writing, the pacing, the story. Loved both characters, especially Carlos. He was so beautiful and caring, and also hott!!! And Alice was strong willed, feisty and smart. As the story progresses and Alice and Carlos find each other more and more attracted to each other, they have to navigate through their differences to figure out if they can make it work. Not only is Carlos younger than Alice, but they also come from different worlds.

“I’m from Puerto Rico. I don’t have an MBA. I’m less successful than you. Hell, I’m your assistant.”

There’s a little back and forth between them because of their differences and some super awesome angsty moments. However, their problems are truly realistic, not over the top, and there’s no stupid or unnecessary drama. There’s also tons of feels along the way.

“Really, mi amor,” he said, still cradling her cheek in his hand as a rain cloud covered the sun. “I walked away from your father’s company because I believed in you. I didn’t care about anything—or anyone—else, and so far, that choice was the best decision I ever made. In my whole life.”

“I love you, he thought. I love you, you driven, smart, beautiful, sexy woman. I love you like crazy. I have for the longest time.”

And the sexy times, OMG, scorching hott!!!!

“You’re the boss at the office, Allee. But, here?” He stood up, then reached for her hips, turning her so that they traded places and the backs of her knees touched the bed. “I’m in charge.”

“Take me to bed, Carlos.”
“Are you sure, Allee? Once we cross that line, I’m not stepping back. You’ll be mine, mi amor. And once you belong to me, I don’t intend to walk away. Ever.”

“Te amo. Te quiero. Quiero hacerte el amor.””

See? Fantastic! I don’t want to say anymore cause I don’t want to spoil anything else, but I promise you will love this one. Katy is so talented and her books are the perfect combination of sweet and hot. Can’t wait for the next book in this series. I absolutely recommend!!!!

“Where do we go from here?” she finally asked.
“Mi amor, as long as we’re together, we go wherever we want.”
4.0 out of 5 stars Swoony Latin hero and romantic story 27 June 2017

Blueberry Lane always has an exciting story to tell and I always enjoy Katy's series. I'm excited for Alice story and I like that the hero is diverse too! I love how they started out and for Carlos to stick by Alice when no one would. That kind of loyalty in business is hard to find, through the rough start for SST until now. While Carlos has always found his boss attractive well he thinks she's way above his league. Alice never treated him like that and the fact that the tension ramped up was exciting.

It helps that I like both Carlos and Alice as individuals. I admire Alice for sticking to her guns and having the courage to stand on her own. Feisty and smart but still cares for her employees. Carlos is hot but also loyal, caring and supportive plus family guy. From the start he always wanted to be there for Alice and yet he has his own ambitions. It's great that the author seems to have done research to the Latin/Hispanic/Puerto Rican culture too.

The way they are familiar and knew one another is a huge plus is how their relationship moved on. I like that it was the opposite of the usual office romance with the heroine being the employee. Here there is that forbidden factor plus the age gap and social differences and I liked that. Their relationship evolved unbeknownst to them and the pacing was perfect. As they say Spanish is a lover's language especially when you have one hot guy like Carlos speaking it. The swoon! While mine is rusty I still know some words that boy is smooth. Alice might have reservations but this guy is determined enough to break down her walls little by little. When they finally ar down they are just like their connection wonderful and full of passion.

The time it took for them to be ready was a blessing cause once they are, it's all in. The problems they faced as a couple make sense and creates angst but fit the story. They certainly make for on sweet and hot couple! Emphasis on the hot.It's interesting to me how these sisters are all so different but got along. They used to be divided and now they are united well lost of them. Katy Regnery is clever in her pairings most if them may seem unlikely but they work and balance out. I appreciate the fact that Alice and Carlos have different lifestyles yet were able to merge them well. I'm curious for Elizabeth's story to come.
5.0 out of 5 stars This Man deserves this woman - another Must Read from Ms Regnery 1 July 2017
By Karen Hulseman - MyOwnBookshelves - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love Katy's storytelling. Katy just gives me what I want in romance after a long day of real life for entertainment and escapism. So, besides everything she gives me that I crave in a story, this story delivers extraordinary imagination that had me devouring the pages.

I've been lamenting in social media about what has been missing from offerings in romance today. Katy Regnery's novel checked off these boxes:
★ Older woman/younger man
★ Driven characters but not cutthroat
★ No big drama scene for drama's sake
★ Culturally respective
★ I think I'm going to start running again

I want to delve into two points to persuade you to add to your TBR. First up, "Driven not Cutthroat". It seems of late all the office romance stories involve some level of competition. Not here. As a reader, you clearly understand they respect each other and their talents they bring to the workplace. So much so that each one wants to make it work - without big drama about it. Second is the "Culturally respective". Now, in private, I make fun of my own cultural base. But sometimes in stories that difference between the hero/heroine's known sphere of influence is used for comedic relief. Now, am I saying this is wrong? No, not that at all. But Ms Regnery envelopes Carlos' upbringing and brings those differences in the forefront as something to be embraced.

Okay I said two, but really seeing the smart, driven woman get the hot younger man? GO TEAM GRACEFULLY AGING WOMEN!

Now, if you've never read Katy or any of the Blueberry Lane series, this would be an excellent place to start. ( There are a few characters in previous books but nothing to make you feel you are missing. Solidly could be standalone. If you are familiar with her books, this story offers solidly realistic characters, *fans self* moments, a super swoony hero, and as always a HEA.

Wow… Just wow… Not a single contemporary romance book could hold a candle to Katy Regnery’s Blueberry Lane. Believe me. I’m not really a fan of contemporary romance, I’m more romance-suspense kind of girl, but Blueberry Lane series? It’s an exception. I absolutely adore it. They are all extraordinarily great.

This book, The Director and Don Juan, is no different. It’s so achingly beautiful. Alice Story, our heroine, was the boss in the Story Sisters company, while Carlos, the alpha-hero, was Alice’s personal assistant. He’s also 7 years younger. Quite a lot of romance book depicting this kind of story, in reverse mode, where the older and in higher office position is the alpha-male. While office romance might be frown upon, that kind of situation was (mostly) acceptable. But when you reversed it, the frown got a lot deeper. And this situation was captured very well in this book. The way the situation captured was very classy, so heartfelt, I couldn’t help it but felt for them.

The story mainly revolved around how these two main characters came to term with their feelings toward each other, and how they reacted to it. I love how they went through it in a very mature way; a bit of drama, yet never prolonged. They tackled the obstacles one at the time, and in the end, they tackled them together, a true partner. I also love how the principles that strongly held by Alice was still being held in the end, and they still found a way to be together.

So, if you like office romance story, or romance story in general, you should try this one. It’s excellent, really in different stratosphere than the other.
5.0 out of 5 stars A New Kind of Love Story with a New Kind of Hero 3 July 2017
By Lena Loves Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a different kind of love story. In most books, the man is older than the woman and is much more experienced in life than the heroine. In this book, the heroine, Alice was seven years older than Carlos, the hero. It was a nice change to get lost in. I couldn't wait to see what Katy did with this storyline. She did not disappoint.

The thing l loved most about this book was Carlos. With this character, Katy has revived and redefined the Latin Lover. Carlos was the perfect blend of everything. He may be young but he had the mental maturity than most men ten years his senior. He was dominant in the bedroom without being overbearing. He was soft and loving without being a pushover. I could not get enough of him.

Alice may have been smart and strong when it came to business affairs but she was timid and insecure when it came to the affairs of the heart. Carlos's ability to be honest about his feelings with Alice allowed her to be honest as well. It helped move the story at a good pace so that the we were able to enjoy their journey and celebrate in their happily ever after.

I loved this story and these characters. I am hoping to see more of them as the series continues.
