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?
Review: Vi Keeland delivers another delicious romance in the form of Reese and Chase. How do you make a dull date more exciting? Have Chase Parker crash it and spin false tales of a childhood that never even happened. Of course, this is only after he openly insults you for trying to craft the perfect escape from Mr. Boring. Vince and Reese’s chemistry was undeniable from that first encounter in the bathroom hallway of the restaurant. After getting a new job and discovering that a certain Mr. Parker is her new boss, she finds herself struggling to resist her attraction to him. He becomes relentless in his attempts to get her into his bed, bending his own company policy to his will. Reese is full of fire and has enough self-respect to continuously dodge his attempts. I loved that she thought about the consequences of giving in to her personal desires and how it might affect her job. She wasn’t some lust-filled woman ready to sleep with her boss and climb her way to the top. Their endless flirty banter and sexual tension could be cut with a knife and the plot had a lot of emotional depth to boot. There was a lot of mystery to chase that left me hungry for more and Reese realizes he doesn’t have to be the perfect guy to be right. Bossman is a fast-paced forbidden office romance that kept me on the edge of my seat, devouring every last page.
