I am completely and utterly in love with this hilarious book!
If there were an award for most entertaining book of the year, this would be hands down the winner.
I can’t tell you how many times I woke my husband up while I was cackling with laughter. I mean tears were rolling down my face, couldn’t catch my breath laughing. I honest-to-goodness did not want the book to end. The banter! The pranks! The chemistry! Pure freaking gold! I can’t think of anything that I didn’t like about it, I loved everything about it. I was hesitant about starting this just because I’ve read a bunch of office romance books recently. So if you’re thinking the same thing get over it, you won’t regret it.
Going back to work was supposed to be a painless transition, but when my new boss turns out to be an arrogant, cocky jerk, he quickly turns my professional life into a world of torture. Okay, fine, calling him an asshat before knowing he was my boss wasn’t my finest moment. Hating him should be easy. I just never counted on him being so gorgeous or charming when he’s not annoying me.
I expected my new assistant to be professional and punctual, but all I’m getting are dirty looks and rude comments. I should fire the little hellion, but instead all I can think about is bending her over my desk and breaking every rule I’ve ever made for myself.
One look. One touch. One night. If we break the rules, our lives will never be the same again.
Good thing rules were made to be broken. And besides, it feels so good to Tempt the Boss.”
Lauren quickly became one of my favorite heroines. She was quirky, smart, and playful. I loved everything about her. Her kids were always her priority, she was an amazing mom. The conversations with Kaleigh, her sister, were laugh-out-loud funny. Lauren was definitely entertaining and funny as hell. When you added sexy to her list of qualities, it made her lethal.
“I think I almost killed my boss!” I yell into the phone as I speed to his dry cleaners.
“What do you mean, almost? Does he know? Did you wear gloves?” She peppers me with questions, and I hear banging in the background.
“Kaleigh, please, just this once, can you try to be fucking normal?” I ask, thumping the steering wheel in exasperation as I start freaking out.
“Okay, fine. What exactly happened?”
“I put fucking itching powder in his pants. And I think his dick or his ass, or I don’t fucking know, maybe his balls, was allergic to it, and he had to go to the fucking hospital!” I finish on a shrill yell.
“You put what?”
“Itching powder I took from Gabe’s prank box! It was just supposed to be a stupid joke. A payback for the porn bombing he pulled on my computer,” I say as my eyes start filling with tears.
“You mean after you put a laxative in his Coke?”
“Kaleigh, not now, for the love of God. You are on my side always. Blood thicker than asshat boss,” I remind her.
Austin (aka..asshat) built his business from the ground up, and he was married to his job. He was sexy as sin but bossy, he liked being in control. It didn’t take long to realize that he was also very thoughtful, loyal and sweet. I enjoyed his friendship with Noah they were always entertaining together. I loved Austin’s connection with the kids. He genuinely enjoyed his time with them and wanted more of it.
“I open up the porn site and start flipping on all the links that pop up. I click girl porn, anal porn, BBW porn, big tit porn, gay porn, lesbian porn, MILF porn; you name the porn, I open all the links and put her volume to the max. Take that, you little minx.”
“I watch her sit down and touch the mouse to bring her computer screen to life. The second her computer fires up, the normally quiet office is filled with the sounds of loud sexual moaning. “Oh my god! Oh my god! OH MY GOD!” she squeals, getting more and more flustered. I get up from my chair and walk to my door. I lean against it as I say, “Watching porn at work. Real nice.”
The chemistry between Lauren and Austin was undeniable. They just fit together. When they finally get together the sex it HOTT!! I mean cheeks blushing, fanning yourself HOT!
“Okay, Kaleigh is leaving the door open for you. Go woo your girl.” “Woo?” I ask him. “A meal, rose petals, champagne, lingerie, vibrators, cuffs. You know, romance.” “This, I can do.” I make a list of everything I need to get. “I’m going to woo the fuck out of her.”
“That is almost like watching porn,” I tell him. “You doing stuff like watching dishes, vacuuming, homework with [my son]. It’s mom porn.” His eyebrows shoot up. “Are you checking me out?” he questions with a smile. “I’m going more than checking you out. I’m undressing you in my mind,” I tease him as I lean against the counter. He shakes the water from his hands. “Really? Well, in that case, where the fuck is the vacuum?”
I loved all the characters. I adore cute kids in a book, Gabriel and Rachel brought so much to the story. I loved Kaleigh and Noah especially the times when they were all together.
The book was so well written, witty and smart. It was the best combination of funny and sexy. I haven’t laughed that hard in so long. Did I mention that I loved this book? As a new favorite of mine, it’s safe to say that I highly recommend it. I will be grabbing some paperbacks to hand out to some of my friends. If it comes out on Audible, I’ll be grabbing that as well.
Standalone. Contemporary Romance. Adult.
