By Sloane Howell
He’s the boss. But she’s ready to take charge.
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.
BOSSED is the first book I’ve read from Sloane Howell and I’m sad to say that I struggled with it. I even considered not finishing it a couple of times, but I pushed through. It started out okay, but it quickly became boring and repetitive. I think the biggest issue for me was that Jenny and Ethan’s behaviour was extremely childish. They would scream, shout and storm away instead of having an actual conversation to sort the problem out. For the first half of the book, all they wanted to do was push each other’s buttons to see what kind of reaction they would get. Good or bad, they didn’t care; they just wanted a reaction. The second half of the book was mostly sex mingled with break-ups and make-ups. Ethan’s rude attitude right from the start made him hard to like, and Jenny’s over-the-top reaction to everything had me shaking my head. BOSSED is told in dual POVs, comes with a HEA and can be read as a stand-alone.
