Publisher's Summary

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Vi Keeland comes a sexy new stand-alone novel.

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 and went back to my miserable 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 that a month later he'd wind up being my new sexy boss?

I CANT EVEN FINISH THIS

Try as I might, I can't finish this book. I'm about 2-3 hours from the end and I just don't care to put any more effort in. Normally I've enjoyed Maxine Mitchell's narration, but her over dramatized hesitations/pauses are literally grating on my nerves. Overall the story has potential, there are funny moments and some moments that tug on your heart strings, but it didnt reel me in at all. If you're desperate to waste a credit, this one will suffice, otherwise, I've definitely heard/read better.

Written for a 12 yo Cinderella stricken girl

ridiculous storyline. A hot guy with a perfect 10 (HOT body AND smart AND a business owner AND witty AND AND AND...) is all hot and bothered with the heroine literally by the second chance meeting they have. He wants a committed relationship shortly after they meet although apparently he is in HOT demands and is willing to wait for her to say yes. The majority of the story is him chasing her and the heroine secretly dying to hook up with him but holding back. Also the sappy settings where the hero just showed up made him seem like a stalker and again childish as he always showed up exactly when she was approached by a man.This is a story written for a 12 year old Cinderella stricken girl and not one who lives in reality. Still 4 hours to go and can not finish it. Don't waste your credit.

predictable

It started out interesting and funny but once the characters got together the story became predictable. I knew what would happen at every turn.
Also, the female lead was an underdeveloped character. I only learned that she had red hair, nothing more.

A bad Narrator can totally ruin a book and she did

Maxine Mitchell has very few good points about her narration. Not many, but a few.
Her narration did ruin this book. As I started listening to the beginning, I cringed as she has so many high intensity whistling S's in each of her words. It's ear piercing. It's like nails on a chalk board. The word Intensity took 5 seconds to complete. When she says Chase ask's for steps. I had to pull out my ear buds. Okay, you get the picture.
She also doesn't sound like a 20 something pretty girl.
Joe Arden was really good. He didn't have much narration in this book though. Too Bad.
This story was okay.
I did finish since the last half of the book was much better than the first.
Chase was a funny guy as he built up fabricated stories over and over to get rid of other guys flirting with his girl. He had a heartbreak of a love story years ago which he had trouble getting over.
Reese was the perfect girl for him and got him to love again.
The back and forth and sneaking around was a good story.
I wish I enjoyed it more and could get more out of it. Those S's just got in the way too much.
I was able to finish the book, but it wasn't easy. I am picky about good narrators and this one was hard to listen to for over 9 hours.

CHASE AND REESE....WOW WHAT A STORY!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Bossman to be better than the print version?

Always is....This was very well narrated!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Bossman?

When she says she quits...and its ON!

What does Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I thought they were great!! Both..really good job!!!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and I did!

Any additional comments?

This was almost perfect..I am still giving it 5 stars, but really 4.75 because it ended super abruptly....we needed like 1 more sentence....it was weird...

Reese needs a new job, and has been applying all over....she goes on a date that is not going well and meets HIM....Chase...Mr Bossman...of course he is super gorgeous and they are drawn to each other....Well fate is a cray thing and she keeps running into him..and ends up working for his company like a month later....The have a whirlwind romance...but both these people have damaged pasts...and Mr Chase runs hot/cold...Reese doesn't give up though...and they get their beautiful HEA!!

I swear romance books are ruining me for all other men....because these kinda guys do not really exist...LOL

GREAT LISTEN....FLOVED IT!!!!!! :) :) :)

a bore, really

the narration was slow and draggy, too old to narrate this type of book. The book constantly tried to develop a story line. Weak, very weak....no erotica to speak of, book was a bait and switch.

Great story but...

Why can it be two fair share of the narrative be done by both male and female POV. That kills any romance book ever!! That really sucks when either of them has to constantly pose with a voice intended to be the male or female specially when there are clearly two people already narrating the book. That sucks big time! It kills the point in communicating the dream intended by the book. If that is the point then just leave it as a book no need for a narration if you don't intended on distribution the work equally. Plus it gets utterly BORING... really.

Hot stuff is a nice guy

Lovely romantic story, well narrated.
Enchanting characters. definitely a feel good story with plenty of saucey bits.
I loved that although he was a successful business man, the descriptions were about the people and not the stuff around them.

Want a hot office romance, look no further!

The whole sleeping with the boss concept is nothing new, but the story of Reese and Chase is simply adorable. From the very first moment they meet in a restaurant, both on separate dates, the sparks are there, and they only intensify when they start working together. Chase Parker is arrogant, funny, sensitive, gorgeous, but has his own baggage to deal with; Reese is smart, completely likeable, vulnerable, and completely falls under Chase's spell. This is just a lovely read, one of those books that just warms the heart.

Great story, fantastic Narrators

Maxine is my favourite Narrator so far on my audible books journey. Joe has that sexy voice any woman could dream about.
I loved the way they told this beautiful, funny, sad and lovely romantic story of two people who helped each other take that leap of faith into falling in love.
