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 funny and sexy romance between, you guessed it, a boss and his employee. Bossman picks up as Reece is on a terrible date. She’s overheard by Chase in the bathroom trying to bail when he takes it upon himself to crash her date pretending to be a long lost friend from childhood.
Reece and Chase’s chemistry sizzles on the pages through their fun and sexy banter. There were so many moments I had to hold in my laughter while reading in public. What else do you expect from a Keeland novel?
What I enjoyed most about Bossman was Chase as a character. He’s assertive and confident with an alpha male vibe. He is never over-the-top with his alpha maleness. Keeland always straddles the alpha male and douchebag line perfectly.
Now that I’ve read a few Keeland novels I’ve noticed a pattern. Keeland’s novels almost always feature a male love interest with baggage from his past that he has to overcome to allow himself to be truly happy with the protagonist. This kind of story always works since it adds some seriousness to an otherwise standard fluffy romance.
I’m usually not a fan of epilogues since they’re predictable. However, Bossman’s epilogue brings the story full circle. It was cute, funny, and romantic.
Overall, Bossman is the perfect novel to curl up with outside to soak up the rays. It features Keeland’s funny banter, a swoon worthy love interest, and some heaviness to keep the story from getting too fluffy.
