Laura’s Review of Bossman by Vi Keeland

From New York Times Bestseller, Vi Keeland, comes a sexy new standalone 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―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? Then again...

What were the chances a month later he'd wind up being my new sexy boss? 

What I Loved

         For me the better question is what didn’t I love about this book?  The story opens with Reese on an awkward date calling her best friend to help bail her out when she runs into a sexy stranger and from there the flirting and sexy banter begins.  I love that the book jumped right into the story because I quickly got a sense of who Reese and Chase were. I immediately fell in love with both Reese and Chase and stayed that way till the very end.  

        I loved Reese’s humor and wit, and all the hilarious situations she seems to find herself in whenever Chase pops up.  She was an easy character to relate and connect to, making it easy for me become emotionally attached to the plot. 

As much as I loved Reese, I think loved Chase a little bit more.  He is sexy on every level and after everything he’s been through I fell in love with him even more.  I loved his attitude and his sense of humor when it came to making up these hilarious detailed stories.  Chase was a man of many sides and layers which gave this character so much depth and made it easy for me be emotionally invested in his story.

        It’s been a long time since a book has made me literally laugh out loud or put a giddy smile on my face and Bossman certainly did that.  What I particularly loved though about this book though is I was this way from the very beginning to the very end.  Of course, the story was a ton of filled with sexual tension which lead to some very hot sex scenes but with the humor added into the mix I enjoyed this booked even more.
Not So Much
        I really don’t have any complaints about this book it was amazing from beginning to end.  I do wish though, that maybe there was a little bit more detail added in.  I felt like more attention was paid towards Chase rather than Reese.  It was said repeatedly how good looking Chase was, what he was wearing, and what his home looked like.  But those same details just weren’t mentioned as much when it came to Reese’s outfits, her overall look or her apartment.  I just don’t like it when the male character gets more description than the female lead does.

To Sum It All Up!
        Overall, this was such a fun quick read that I would recommend to anyone!  I loved the humor between Reese and Chase and how it developed the very instant they met.  It was great to see them interact with each other not just because of the attraction they both had for each other but because Chase would always make me laugh.  I loved how he eventually wore Reese down his amazingness and charisma, and how he couldn’t get enough of her body.  The sexual chemistry sizzled and made reading this book just as much fun as the humor did. 

        Also, I really liked how the book not only switched point of views but timelines as well, letting a second story unfold on its own.  It broke my heart knowing what was coming towards the end but I loved how it was all laid out.  I felt like the plot was well planned and though out and the writing was so amazing.  I immediately was sucked into the story, and was emotionally invested in both Chase’s and Reese’s happiness from practically the beginning.  Reese was an easy character to relate to, and Chase was an easy character to fall in love with.  This was my first Vi Keeland book but I can certainly say I am a definite fan and can’t wait to read her other books.
