Publisher's Summary

What's the actual last thing you'd ever want your executive assistant to see you doing the morning after you had hot, drunk, angry sex with her in a terrible hotel room? Dancing around your terrible hotel room to "Come and Get Your Love" like Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy - naked? Yeah. Me too.

And yet, here we are.

This isn't even the most unprofessional thing that's happened between us in the past couple of weeks.

The first was when I agreed to let her have Christmas Day off, but only if she goes with me to three family gatherings as my fake girlfriend.

The second was when she caught me belting out a Christmas song on stage in the awful hotel bar.

The third was the hot, drunk, angry sex that followed, but I do not regret it.

And she hasn't even found out the real reason I need her by my side this holiday season.

I need to pull it together before I do the dumbest, most unprofessional thing of all - fall head over heels in love with the only assistant who's lasted more than a month at the job and claims to hate me and my moods more than she hates eggnog.

And I've seen how much she hates eggnog.

This audiobook is dual narration, with portions that are duet-style.

WHAT A LITTLE GEM

Oh what a gem of a story this was.. a fun and cute office romance/fake girlfriend banter-filled love story. And the character connection, the easy flow of the story, the laughs, the sizzles, the charm, the amusing secondary characters and the tender sentiments were all perfectly brought to life by Mackenzie and Connor (Connor you did swoon-worthy accents). Kayley, thank you, you’ve written a very entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable fun and flirty story that warmed my heart. WORTH A CREDIT? Yes absolutely worth it.

This was such a fun and easy listen.
Thr banter was hot and and the tone of this was funny and entertaining.

The narrator performed an enthusiastic and sweet audio delivery.

If you fancy a cute fun filled bite of a fluffy holiday romance this one is for you.

Excellent Holiday Romance!

A Very Bossy Christmas is a very funny, office, fake relationship romance!

I loved Declan and Maddie! Their chemistry was on point and their banter was so fun to read. The two of them (and their families) had me laughing and I didn't want this book to end. Declan was so gruff but melted perfectly for Maddie and when his Irish came out *swoon*! Maddie is a spit fire of an assistant and I love that she keeps him on his toes. Excellent holiday romance that I recommend everyone read (or listen to - I did and the narrators were superb)!

omg



I don't think I can put into words how much I love Kayley Loring's books. They are simply lovely and make me feel as though I'm wrapped in a warm blanket. Her writing naturally flows, is sharp and witty and just makes me feel happy. Ms Loring also knows how to write a hero. Each one is just perfect without being perfect, if that makes sense. Declan is no exception and might actually be my favourite of all her leading men. His dirty mouth, dirty thoughts and big beautiful heart just filled me with joy with every word. Her leading ladies are brilliant too, complimenting the male character yet taking as much of the limelight themselves. Mel has become my girl crush - strong, feisty and not afraid to go for what she wants, with a little persuasion from the fabulous Piper. A Very Bossy Christmas is another to add to my 'oh this is my favourite Kayley Loring book' list because I don't think she's written anything I haven't loved that I've so far read. There's no major angst, no mind blowing cliff hangers or any gimmicks, Ms Loring just relies on her talent to drag you into her world and make you smile.

I can’t even with this book!

Forget about this being a Christmas book. I mean it IS a Christmas book. And the best Christmas book I’ve ever read. But, it’s also the perfect romance book period. It’s in my top five of all time. I wish there was a way for me to give it more than five stars. I read the book first and adored it. THEN, I listened to it and discovered the national treasure that is Connor Crais. This is a tradition for me now. I will kick off the season listening to Kaley Loring’s hilarious, hot, heartfelt words.

Such a cute book!

I really loved this book! I’ve never read this author before. Very funny and sweet. Many laugh out loud moments in the dialogue. I was recently introduced to both of these narrators and I like them quite a bit. Will definitely check out some of kayley Loring’s other books.

Fabulous Narration!

This was my first experience listening to Connor Crais and Mackenzie Cartwright. They were absolutely two of the best performers I’ve listened to in a long time. The story started out interesting but about half way through I got really bored. It just wasn’t enough story to keep me interested. I actually skipped about 10 chapters and went straight to the epilogue.

Sweet romance

Kayley Lori's is a recent but very welcome discovery. Her stories are sweet, low angst explosions of love.
I loved this gentle hug of a Christmas themed romance.
Both narrators were excellent.

5 STARS FOR SURE ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

5 STARS FOR SURE ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

A Very Bossy Christmas was everything I was expecting and more!

Declan a typical workaholic that likes to boss and be in control and his assistant Maddie Cooper is the only one who handle Declan. Maddie is a beautiful, strong and independent woman who gave as good as she received. The chemistry these two is electric and the banter hilarious!!
Having to keep his mother happy, he needs a fake relationship and so what’s the best thing to do? Yep that’s right! and so not to ruin their working relationship they decide to draw up a signed contract where they pretend to be in a relationship.
Theirs's obvious attraction between them and when that spark is lit things become extremely HOT!!! If you haven’t already read or listened to this hilariously hot holiday romance, trust me you don’t want to miss out on this fabulous book by Kayley Loring that brings together two different families an Irish-Italian with a Staten Island and just from knowing that family plays a part in this story it all ready sets the scene for a good feel story which is what Christmas is all about.

Maybe the narrators don´t mix?

Fun book, but I am not really a fan of the narrators. The female is upbeat, while the male is down to earth kinda? Ok, I don´t like the female reading this story. Somehow. Oh, she is really irritating.

liked it a lot

I got my hopes up at first, as it seemed both narrators would do all their main character's dialogue. Unfortunately, it didn't last long. This is my only gripe with this audiobook. Connor has a simply divine voice but I'm not a fan of his version of the FMC's voice. Other than that, this is a steamy yet humorous book which I enjoyed immensely.

Romantic Comedy at its Best

Kayley Loring does it again. The humor and banter between the two main characters makes this book worth the listen all on it's own. Add in the story, side characters and sexy times and you have a five-star listen. I hope to get more books including stories for Declan's siblings.
I listened to the audo version of this book. Mackenzie Cartwright and Connor Crais were fantastic. Connor does an Irish access in part of the story and it is everything. Mackenzie is so great and I hope to continue to hear more from her.

5 stars are not enough for this book.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending A Very Bossy Christmas to anyone who enjoys romantic comedies.
It's a refreshingly different twist on the fake relationship trope in that the big reveal isn't the fake relationship.
The male narrator Connor Crais' gruff sexy voice is perfect and really brings Declan to life.
The Female narrator, Mackenzie Cartwright, is brilliant as Maddie and she especially shines as Maddie's teenage niece Piper who is adorable.
Keep a look out for the punny chapter names!
I know this will be an audiobook I listen to over and over again at any time of the year.
