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 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.

*By sexy, we mean sexy. Like, 18+ sexy.

Jenny is a numbers lady, specifically when it comes to baseball stats, which she will need to kick ass for her latest interview.  Of course, just before heading to said interview, she’s almost mowed down by a hot looking guy in a suit who plainly tells her “You’re excused” when he was in the wrong.  Well that ensues a way of words.  Jenny is no mousy heroine, she dishes it out really quickly. Did I mention the person she so eloquently puts in his place is none other than Ethan Mason, her new potential boss?

Ethan has a hard chip on his shoulder.  When the woman he ran down walks into the interview, let the verbal assaults begin.  As much as he’s sort of aggravated with Jenny, he can’t seem to keep his arousal down.  He’s never met a woman who can keep up with him.  Jenny really needs this job to help with her father’s illness.

Office romances, they can either go so right or so wrong.  At first Jenny was not amused with Ethan and the hoops he would have her jumping, yet their chemistry was undeniable.  There was some bumps in the road for these two, but we get our HEA.

Bossed was one of my favorite Sloane Howell book.  He wrote dueling POVs, his writing chops is certainly developing better with each book.  As well as he can write an male POV, but even more impressive was writing Jenny’s POV.  He made her sassy, smart and snarky.  And gentlemen, if you read our reviews, don’t you find it hot when a lady knows her baseball stats better than any man?  Yeah, I know you’re turned on.  As much of an ahole Ethan was trying to be, he really was a standup guy, especially when it came to Jenny’s dad.

Can this office romance survive?  Will the verbal insults get in the way?  Get a copy of Bossed and see for yourself.
