“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?
What were the chances a month later he’d wind up being my new sexy boss?”

BOSSMAN is a standalone novel that is majorly told from Reese’s point of view but we do get some chapters told from Chase’s point of view. I will say that his chapters kind of confused me in the beginning, but as the story progressed, I understood why the author wrote the story this way. It all makes sense in the end. Reese was a wonderful heroine. I really enjoyed her character.
She was slightly broken from a trauma in her childhood, but she didn’t let it slow her down. She just adapted to her fears and learned to live with it. It’s weird but what happened to her in her past is what helped with the connection to Chase. (You’ll understand that more as you read this story). Chase was also an amazing character. He is charming, sweet, witty, and smart. The author made me love him immediately by giving him this fantastic snarky personality. Chase stood out from the type of arrogant, wealthy CEOs we’ve all seen because he treated Reese with respect. On top of that, he was witty.
After the oddest and yet strangely awesome non-first dates ever (if you can even call it a date since it wasn’t technically theirs), Reese couldn’t forget about the stranger she’d met at the restaurant who she’d pegged at first as a jerk, but who quickly showed himself to be surprisingly fun and charming. Though the chances of running into him again in the city were slim to none, the last thing she expected was that a few short weeks later, he’d not only be her new boss, but he wouldn’t let something as pesky or insignificant as “rules” to get in between of his pursuit of her.
I thought Chase and Reese were a perfect couple. They had an amazing connection, their banter made me laugh, and their chemistry was off the charts. Their dynamic was so much fun — the way they danced around their affection for each other, unsure of how far they were willing to risk taking things between them within the workplace, but certainly not willing to let each other go. This made for some fantastic banter that kept me smiling for pages on end.
Despite the undeniable connection and heat between them, she’d had bad luck with relationships in her past — specifically a damaging office romance — and she was in no hurry to repeat the mistake again or risk the new career she was building for one night of fun. Before she was willing to put her heart on the line, she needed to know for sure that what they had was more than just a fling.
Contrasted with their fun, sexy new relationship that was slowly building in the present day were heart-breaking glimpses into Chase’s tragic past that showed just how much pain he was hiding. Both of them had a lot to heal from, but with each other they’d both found, for the first time, someone who they wanted to try to have a future with.
I really liked that Reese and Chase didn’t jump right into bed with each other, but spend a ton of time together. It made the anticipation and building sexual tension that much more intense. This was a slow burn in terms of sexy times, but the chemistry and physical attraction was palpable. I was kind of excited when Reese gave into her feelings.
This book was awesome! It was fun, sexy, and light-hearted, but well-balanced with angst, swoon, and great banter. I was laughing from the first chapter and honestly didn’t want to put it down even for a minute. You could just feel how much the hero and heroine were drawn to each other and their “forbidden office romance” situation made the tension and longing between them that much stronger. There was also a “story-behind-the-story” that made me heart ache for the hero but it made the healing they both found in their new relationship so much more meaningful. If you’re looking for a hot, addictive and romantic book to fall in love with, this is it!!
