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?

Got only a couple of chapters in and couldn't continue due to the narrator. Authors other books have been an easy fun listen so I was looking forward to this

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.

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.

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.

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.

Tall, Dark and Handsome

Bossman really surprised me. I saw the cover and read the blurb and was not anticipating how meaty this story really is!

There is the hilarity that Vi Keeland is known for but also a seriously sweet romance between two people who have been traumatized by very unfortunate circumstances.

Hot and steamy is an understatement between this pair and I couldn't get enough of their banter and their "pretend history".

I feel like Maxine Mitchell doesn't even need any more accolades because she must have heard them all by now. She is a seasoned pro that brings any story to life and I know that no matter the content, Maxine will make it a good listen. There are cameos from Joe Arden but not a whole lot. Joe for me is the same as Maxine. Solid performance every time.

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.

didn't like narrator

I like Vi Keeland books and think this could have been a good story but I really didn't like the female narrator, especially when she was performing the male voice ...i sent it back after a few chapters as just couldn't listen to it .

Bossman is such a masterpiece

I'm finally getting into audiobooks and I've been really drawn into this story! The humour and tone really comes through as well as the emotional scenes!
Vi Keeland delivers such a captivating story from the start to the very end, and everything else in between.
Chase and Reece make such an incredible couple! ♥
