He’s the boss. But she’s ready to take charge.
“Wonderfully witty and fresh, Bossed is a must-read for anyone who loves a sassy, modern heroine and an in-charge alpha hero.”—New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne
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 a 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.
Bossed is sexy. And by that, we mean sexy. Like 18+ sexy. This ebook includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
I’m going to be completely honest here and tell you that I’ve read a couple of things from Sloane Howell before and it really wasn’t my cup of tea. One was a collaboration and the other was a novella. However, I wanted to give BOSSED a try because I like the asshole boss who falls heard and I’m happy I did. I really enjoyed it.
Jenny Johnson has been searching for a better job in order to help pay for her father’s medical bills. As she is getting ready to go to her interview, she knocks into quite possibly the most handsome man she has ever seen. A man who is a complete asshole. Fast forward to her interview and he’s the boss of the very job she is trying to get. After an intense and frustrating interview, she actually gets the job and now the two of them have to fight off their growing attraction for this taboo relationship.
Here’s the thing about BOSSED, Ethan is a complete asshole most of the time. At least until he finally lets Jenny into his world and his heart. There’s something about assholes that just calls to me. I think I like the fact that when they fall, they fall hardd and the reward is so much better. Oh and his dirty mouth….whew. HOT!
The banter in this book is so fun and hilarious. I really enjoyed the whit that both Jenny and Ethan had. Add that to a part sports romance story line and I found myself devouring this book. I loved the baseball parts of it. Especially Jenny and her father. Their bond is over baseball and I loved when we got pieces of them together.
I also enjoyed Matt, Ethan’s best friend, and I hope we get his story. He put Ethan in his place when he needed it but you could tell what a great friend he was and the lengths of things he would do for him.
Overall, I enjoyed this book and I’m so happy I gave it a go. If you are looking for a fun, taboo office romance with great banter, and equally strong hero/heroine, then this is absolutely the book for you.
