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 stomping good read, and I can’t believe that I am only discovering the genius that is Vi Keeland now. Funny, Poignant, Heartwarming, Sexy and Sweet all in equal measure, Bossman will pluck your heartstrings until you feel like an invisible hand is squeezing your heart to bursting point. I had all the feels reading this one – ALL the feels. It was so so good.
Chase is a refreshingly different CEO than the typical dominant type you usually read about in these kind of books. He was happy to stand back and let his employees shine, and I loved that about him. He flirted outrageously with Reece, which could’ve earned him a lawsuit if she wasn’t as attracted to him too. Even though he’s a little bit naughty, he was still a real gent and he totally made my heart swoon. However, he’s hiding a tragedy from his past that has dictated how he’s lived his life up to this point. He’s now at a critical juncture – feeling more than just fleeting lust for a woman – and you know it’s all about to go pear-shaped.
I loved Reece – she really spoke to the career-driven part of my persona. She didn’t wanted to get involved with her boss because she wanted to earn the respect of her co-workers on her own merit, and not because she was sleeping with the bossman.
While she did her damnedest to resist Chase, the man is irresistible and soon they were indulging their sizzling hot chemistry. The sex scenes were brilliantly written and I loved these two together.
Of course, as soon as Reece entertains the possibility of them as a couple, his past comes back to haunt him. He falls apart and pushes her away and it was heartbreaking. I felt their mutual pain and I cried for our tortured hero.
Thankfully, we get our HEA in the end so I’m a happy camper.
I loved the writing and the witty banter between our loving pair. It also had the perfect amount of angst and drama. I can find nothing to fault because it was exemplary in my opinion.
