From New York Times Bestseller, Vi Keeland, comes a sexy newstandalone novel.
The first time I met Chase Parker, I didn’t exactly make a good impression.
I was hiding in the bathroom hallway of a restaurant, leaving a message for my best friend to save me from my awful date.
He overheard and told me I was a bitch, then proceeded to offer me some dating advice.
So I told him to mind his own damn business―his own tall, gorgeous, full-of-himself damn business―and went back to my miserable date.
When he walked by my table, he smirked, and I watched his arrogant, sexy ass walk back to his date.
I couldn’t help but sneak hidden glances at the condescending jerk on the other side of the room. Of course, he caught me on more than one occasion, and winked.
When the gorgeous stranger and his equally hot date suddenly appeared at our table, I thought he was going to rat me out.
But instead, he pretended we knew each other and joined us―telling elaborate, embarrassing stories about our fake childhood.
My date suddenly went from boring to bizarrely exciting.
When it was over and we parted ways, I thought about him more than I would ever admit, even though I knew I’d never see him again.
I mean, what were the chances I’d run into him again in a city with eight million people?Then again…
What were the chances a month later he’d wind up being my new sexy boss?
“I couldn’t remember ever wanting another man as badly as I wanted Chase. For a while, I’d thought it was because he was my boss– that exciting feeling of being tempted by the forbidden. But I knew it was more than that. So much more, it scared the hell out of me. “
Chase Parker is so delicious. I mean, Bossman. The story. :p
It’s my second time to read a Vi Keeland book and I must say this was better than the first book I’ve read which was The Baller: A Down and Dirty Football Novel. I needed a fun, flirty, and light NA read and reading some glowing 5-star reviews from my friends, I was totally sold and I considered it as an immediate read. It didn’t fail. The book was what I was really looking for.
Bossman started off when Reese Annesley had an encounter with Chase Parker at a restaurant where she’s meeting her date, Martin. Chase overheard her sending a voicemail to her friend, complaining about her boring date. A few minutes later, she was shocked when Chase joined her table and basically crashed her date by making up stories about their “childhood”. Lol. Now few weeks later, they met again and she eventually learned that Chase is in fact, an owner of a wax company where’s she’s about to start her new work.
What made me love this book? It was for the sole reason that I enjoyed everything that happened here. Chase was so adorable and sexy and his made-up stories just cracked me up. Reese, on the other hand, was a likeable heroine. Despite her issues about her past, she didn’t have annoying dramas which made it easy for me to like her. I loved that the majority of this book focused more on the flirty side rather than the emotional one. I’ve been reading sad books lately and I can’t take another heartbreak for now. So this was indeed a book where you can expect yourself to be laughing out loud because of the humor and the sexy interactions shared by the characters.
There was of course, a huge thing that happened in the later part of this book. Some sort of twist that kind of deviated the story into a heart-breaking one. But it was a good thing since it gave the story a depth and it made me appreciate the characters more because of how they handled the situation and managed to overcome it. I was also able to see the broken, different side of Chase, although it shattered my heart into pieces.
The best part of the book was the ending. I loved it! It left a smile on my face and it simply made me happy. As a whole, this book was fun and enjoyable, with oozing sexiness all over the place. Chase is such a perfect Bossman! I highly recommend this book if you love smexy office romance and friends-to-lovers tropes with a tiny bit of drama.
“You’re fired,” he groaned as he buried his face in my hair. “So fucking fired.”
