Namie claims that the only reason she hasn't poisoned him yet is due to the large paychecks she receives. However, she has shown a surprising level of patience with Izaya and has frequently been shown going above and beyond what would normally be required of her such as when she agreed to let Akane Awakusu stay with her while she ran away from home.
Since Namie initially became his secretary, Izaya seemed to take pleasure in having watched Namie fall so far from grace. Shortly before she agreed to work for him, her family's company was bought by Nebula.

Izaya dangles this fact over her head, attempting to get to her though it seldom works. Due to Namie essentially being on the run from Nebula, Izaya provides Namie with an apartment to live in, moving her around frequently to protect her. Although Izaya himself owns multiple safe-houses, Namie nonetheless seems to appreciate Izaya's protection even if she dislikes him.
The more she works with him, the more she finds out about his personal secrets.
For example, Namie has discovered that Izaya is an incredibly lonely individual. This was shown when he found out that everyone else in the chat-room had been invited to Shinra's for hot pot and even Masaomi had Saki to eat with.
Without realizing Namie had been reading the chat, Izaya asked her if she would allow him to treat her to some hot pot. Namie, realizing that he was only asking in order to comfort himself and his wounded pride, refused and poured salt in the wound by rubbing it in her employer's face that she had seen what he was up to and that he was only asking because he was lonely.
She asked him if he would 'mind not using her to satisfy his vanity'.
In addition, Namie has discovered that Izaya greatly dislikes his sisters being let in on any of his business, Namie frequently tells them information that Izaya himself denies them. She also pays them the same rate she gets paid by Izaya to spy on Seiji for her rather than ask Izaya for information on Seiji himself, technically giving them Izaya's money to do his work.
Upon realizing that Namie told his sisters about who Celty was and that she reads up on what happens in the chat-room, Izaya calls her 'a force to be reckoned with', suggesting his respect for her abilities even if he doesn't enjoy being scrutinized. Izaya is often mentioned or shown to be irritated or uncomfortable with how well Namie does her job and how much she pays attention.
In one instance, he gives her a great deal of work, only to seem perturbed when she finished it a very short while later. She even went above and beyond completing the tasks he gave as if knowing it would annoy him more. Most fans said that this is to turn her away from Seiji, but I think this is to fuel her obsession with Seiji.

Izaya might see Namie as someone who is obsessed with a human, not all of humanity like himself, but at least Namie is obsessed with a single human. Namie, without even noticing it herself is similar to Izaya. They are both obsessed, and Izaya loves this, hence why he likes keeping Namie and respects her. He see's her as someone who is as close as a companion as he can get. Love, probably not, sorry to say.

She did also once called him "the king that she serves". Despite Namie's bossy attitude, she does show some slight fear towards Izaya.Izaya x Namie (Izanamie) AMV - Boyfriend -Durarara!!-
Namie also knows quite a lot about Izaya's personal life. She knows that Izaya is incredibly annoyed at his two sisters and that Izaya is lonely.
She does use this against him when she can. Izaya later calls her "a force to be reckoned with", further gaining more respect from Izaya. So maybe in the end a romantic Izaya and Namie relationship isn't really possible, as Izaya is to obsessed with his love with the rest of humanity and Namie to obsessed with her love for her brother. Izaya would not even love Namie in the off chance that Namie falls in love with him, since Namie is no longer interesting for him, she would be just a normal human for him.
Perhaps the best thing that we can hope between them is respect and interest in each other's secrets and weaknesses.
