What it’s about:
He’s the boss. But she’s ready to take charge.
In this provocative and sexy* office romance, a cheeky new hire tempts a hotshot
sports agent to mix business with pleasure.
Jenny: Job interviews are a bitch under the best of circumstances, but when your potential boss is the world’s biggest prick, that’s when you should simply walk away. It’s just that I need this job so badly—and I’m mesmerized by Ethan Mason’s piercing gaze. Men like him aren’t supposed to exist in real life. But under the tailored suits and GQ looks, Ethan simmers with barely restrained ambition. And no matter how hard I work to fight the attraction, I’m going to get burned.
Ethan: You don’t become a top agent without learning how to close deal. I always get what—or who—I want, by staying cool and in command. Then Jenny Jackson walks into my office with her lush curves and “screw you” attitude and blows away my intentions of keeping things professional. All I can think about is exploring the perfect body hidden beneath those conservative clothes or shutting her saucy mouth with one hot kiss. Jenny’s worth breaking the rules over—if I can convince her to break the rules for me.
*By sexy, we mean sexy. Like, 18+ sexy.
Bossed by Sloane Howell might be my favorite of his novels. This super sexy office romance was a very fun read.
The main characters, Jenny and Ethan, have chemistry. At first their chemistry is rather caustic, but it eventually it’s explosive (in the best possible way). Their banter is snarky and funny. The two of them share motherless childhoods, but the reasons why and the outcomes were very different. One is closed-off and focused, and one is open and caring, and one major thing the two have in common is their love of baseball.
The novella is a quick, fun read. The plot flows smoothly, and the secondary characters add so much to the romantic comedy. I loved Matt and Ethan’s friendship and interactions. Hopefully, the second book in the series, Scored, features Matt and Kelsey!
