Publisher's Summary

He ruined my life.

Now he really wants to screw me.

Justin Hayes was my best friend up until the day he broke my heart and disappeared.

When I find out he’s my new boss, I’m about to leave with my middle fingers held high. Instead, I stop dead in my tracks as soon as he steps into my office.

Justin’s all grown up, and he’s even more gorgeous than I remembered. He was always handsome but now he’s the kind of man I really want to… get to know.

But it doesn’t matter. I despise him. 

He says he wants to work together very, very closely, but I can’t let him anywhere near me. I’m afraid I might slap him right before I kiss his soft, full lips.

He says he remembers everything we went through, and he wants to make it right.

I think he just wants to taste the one girl that got away.

I don’t know what to do. This is my dream job and “quitter” isn’t in my vocabulary, but the sight of Justin makes me want to run my nails down his bare back, nice and rough.

I hate my new boss.

But I want him so badly it hurts.

Hating My New Boss is a super steamy, over the top, hate to love office romance with adult themes and lots of laughs. It’s only for listeners 18+.

Hating My New Boss is a full length standalone novel. No cliffhanger. Guaranteed HEA!

Steamy!

Remi has fought tooth and nail to be the next in line to take over as the new Creative Director at an ad agency. But instead of moving into a new office, she gets a new boss, and he’s the last person she ever wanted to see. A war between two families forced her and her former best friend Justin apart and he poured salt in the wound on his way out of her life. Yet he got the job she wanted and her hate flows more freely than ever before.

Justin only got the job because his big shot dad put his two cents in, but being the boss is always fun, especially when you get to be in control of someone from your past. It’s no secret Remi despises him, but he strikes a deal to bring her to his side. And as they work together to woo a major client, it’ll take more than a raise and some creative control to get her to listen…especially when the line between business and pleasure becomes seriously blurred.

As always, Meghan Kelly has given life to a cast of varied characters without making them sound like cartoons. There’s the dippy client with her far out tone, Remi’s firm voice that often shows her hidden weakness, and Justine’s sultry baritone. As you listen, it’s very easy to stay on track with who is who without having to rewind. I think that’s what makes Kelly successful in her field. She toes the fine line between giving each character a distinct sound and making them each a caricature, and she does it beautifully.

And then there’s the thing where the last Kelly audiobook I listened to was a sweet, Christian romance that took place on a ranch. It’s wild how she can go from sweet to spicy without a hitch. That’s real talent.

Now, for the story. Okay, so Justin must have a magic cock. Demi is spitting venom, but the moment he whips it out, she loses all self worth and just gets down on her knees and lets him do whatever he wants. I’m all for BDSM relations, but this was on par with the Fifty Shades issues of trust and mutual respect. When the surprise “butt stuff” first happened, she hadn’t even forgiven him yet for how he once treated her.

Outside that, it was a great plot then went seamlessly from the big city to underground Hawaii without a beat. The history behind Justin and Remi’s relationship is deep and complicated. It couldn’t be washed away with just an apology and more than one conversation had to happen before the pair could even begin to settle thing between them. I liked Remi at once and wanted to kick Justin right out of that office. But when you get to know Justin, you’ll see that under the protective layer he’s been forced to take, he might just surprise you.

Love to Hate You

We have all had that kind of relationship where we wish we could go back and do things over. When Remi's boss gets let go and a her new boss is introduced to her, she literally cannot help but feel the hatred welling inside. It just so happened to be her old friend from grade school, Justin Hayes, who absolved their friendship when she needed him most. The pain that she is experiencing again by him coming back into her life is something that she is having a challenging time dealing with and when Blair, the owner of a VR empire wants them to work on a project to revamp her business and flies them out to Hawaii to say at her "compound". Sparks (good and bad) start to ignite and refuels the energy that both of them feel.


Meghan Kelly did a fantastic job with her narration! I love the innocence of Remi and as well as Meghan being able to voice the strangeness of Blair and the manliness of Justin.....such great talenT

Hot and steamy love/hate relationship

Passed over for a promotion Reno is forced to work for her childhood best friend who abandoned and betrayed her after his father betrayed her father costing her family millions in a business deal

Remi and Jason’s story as they learn to work together, heal the wounds of the past as Jason reveals the truth of what happened is a passionate turmoil of a love/hate relationship of getting past the past to starting a new. it’s off the chart hot and steamy and had me blushing a few times.

This is my first B.B. Hamel book, it is very well written with developed characters that had me captivated from the very beginning

I think this is my favorite Meagan Kelly performance. She brought the emotion of the characters out so perfectly. She moves through the characters with such expertise. She had me cracking up as the Australian, sorry don’t remember his name and brought Blair’s bizarreness out like a pro.

Definitely recommend

friends to enemies to lovers

Remi’s life took a dramatic turn in her early teens...her father lost his job when his partner tricked him, and she lost her best friend. Justin’s dad went on to a lucrative career while Remi’s dad struggled with depression. 10 years later and Remi has worked hard to get where she is at her job at an ad agency and believes that she will be promoted to the vacant executive position...except the job is given to non other than her former best friend, Justin. Even though Justin has worked hard, he was given the job at the ad agency as a favor to his father. The large account that he has brought with him is that of a virtual reality company. Now this is where the story gets interesting...the owner of the VR company, Blair, is a straaaange lady...well she wants to be a rat! Anyhoo, Blair knows the back story of Remi and Justin’s dads and she wants them to work together on her campaign. Justin has never gotten over losing his best friend, Remi, but as a young teen with an abusive father, he didn’t have any choice but to stop communicating with her. Now he has to work closely with, and manage, the beautiful Remi to produce a successful campaign. Can Remi forgive Justin and work with him? Can these former friends turned enemies, become more? This is a quick story mainly about forgiveness and moving forward. Liked that Justin wasn’t the typical playboy...he was a great guy. Enjoyed the interactions with that strange Blair...had me LOLing! Worth the read-listen. Great narration...really brings out the weird in Blair's character...lol.
I voluntarily accepted a complimentary copy of this book, and this is my honest review.

Old friends turned enemies

I really enjoyed this tale of childhood friends turned enemies. Can they admit to their true feelings and find their way past their own misconceptions. Can Justin have a chance at redemption. Also who needs dual narration when you have Meghan Kelly as your narrator. She does an exceptional job with both the male and female voices.

Virtual reality book that is a interesting read

This is a very good book with amazing narration by Megan Kelly. Trigger warning it does talk about childhood abuse, but it does not go into detail. The story is about to childhood friends that get torn apart due to their parents hate for each other. In the end he becomes her boss. In order to get a big advertising client they have to work together. While they were working together they find out that they truly do love each other.

QUITE THE ADVENTURE. 👍

Very interesting story with lots of shocks and emotional turmoil for Remy, and that's all on the first morning.
Meghan Kelly's narration upholds the underlying strength of character this young woman shows throughout the book. She manages to match the voices to the other characters so it's obvious and flows seamlessly.
There are entertaining clients, challenges and stepping out of their comfort zones to contend with.
And of course, as it a part of the Hate/ Love series the are titillating sex/love scenes. 💝

Remi and Justin!

Remi and Justin were best friends until his father not only told him that they couldn’t be friends anymore, but he also cheated her father in a business deal. When her boss is fired not only wasn’t she chosen for the position, but Justin is now her boss.

At a client’s request they were required to work together on a project and the feelings that they had for each other as children returned stronger than ever. Will Remi be able to overcome the hurts of the past so that they can have a second chance?

Full of heat and drama these two are perfect together but first they must overcome some obstacles standing in their way. I thought the narrator did a great job of bringing both the characters to life.

Love an office romance


This is my first audio from B.B.Hamel but I do have 2 more in ebooks. Once I saw who was narrating this story it was a given I’ll get it . This audio has more in depth storyline than other BB stories. Loved how the 2 main characters were friends then enemies then life long lovers .

Hero is Justin. Heroine is Remi .
Remi hates Justin when she sees him again after so many yrs spent out of each other’s life she gets bypassed from the promotion and she finds out Justin got it . There is a history between Justin and Remi . They were the best of friends when they were 6 years old . And their fathers were working on a movie together. Writing the story . But one bad turn from Justin’s dad . And when Justin left her it was the icing on the cake .
But that’s not all , an old business women comes into the company and tells Justin if they want her account both Justin and Remi have to work together.Loved every single moment of it

I can’t say enough of Meghan Kelly voice. She was Phenomenal narrating this story . All the characters were done to perfection. She nailed it. How she did the low raspy voice of Blair. Justin character was dead on . I didn’t want this to end . I felt all the emotions.

Hating My New Boss

This was the first book I have read/listened to by BB Hamel, as well as the first narration by Meghan Kelly.

The story itself was really strong, and Remi/Justin had really great chemistry, but I really did not like Remi. She was whiny, selfish, spoiled, brat. I've never heard of someone talking to their boss - no matter how much they didn't like the boss - the way that she did. She spent the whole book blaming Justin for his fathers actions, and never once did she think about anyone but herself. I loved Blair and how weird she was, I really had a whole Lady Gaga vision going for her.

The audio performance was well done. At the beginning I really wasn't sure how I felt about the narrator but as I continued to listen I realized that I was only annoyed during Remis parts, and realized I was more annoyed with Remi than the narration itself. Will be looking for other audios by Meghan Kelly in the future.

Love to Hate to Love

She’s holding an angry grudge for something that happened to her family years ago when they were children, unfortunately she never got his side. He never told her why he cut off contact and let her continue to be angry and hurt. Will becoming her boss bring them back into their easy friendship? You will definitely ride an emotional roller coasters with this couple, and you’ve got to love Blair’s the eccentric client that forces them to work together. Absolutely loved their story! As always Meghan did an outstanding job in the narrative.

Hating My New Boss

If you like second chance romances then you will love this one. Because of something that happened when they were younger, these two have been on the other side of the fence with each other but because of a meddling client, they find their way back together. Very nice book that keeps you interested throughout.
Narration was done beautifully as always when I hear a book by Meghan Kelly.

Good story

This was a fast paced book but with a good story and a good HEA.

The story of Remi and Justin started a long time ago when they were just kids, they were best friend with strong feelings but life and circumstances separate them.. not knowing what happened Remi feels like Justin broke her heart and betray her in some way.. she doesn't know exactly what happened, she just knows that he doesn't want her anymore and that she has to move on far away from him.

life goes by, she has a new life and a new project that apparently she is about to lose to the person she loves/hates the most. she didn't count to see him again, to feel what she feels and to want him as much as the first time. she didn't count he is the want stealing her dreams. a roller coaster of emotions, an enemy to lovers story that will keep you enjoying this story from the very first moments and lines..

The narrations by Meghan Kelly were good and Overall the story and book were good.

Hate to love her second chance romance

I overall enjoyed this story. I things the narrator did an okay job at playing both the male and female characters in the story I only gave it four stars I think I would prefer to male just for a bigger differentiation between the two. As for the story while I enjoyed in thought it was a good listen it wasn't one of my faves only because I like to see a stronger female character. I didn't think the author did a great job with the actual storyline and us getting to know the characters. I definitely feel like this is both a hate to lovers but could also be categorized as a second chance romance because of their past. While I did give it four stars I would recommend it.

Good Love Hate Story

Remi and Justin were best friends until he just stopped talking to her. Now he is her new boss and she makes no secret that she hates him but is having hot fantasies about him. They are sent away together to work on a project and develop a hot and steamy romance. Can they cope together back at home or will what they have developed become real.

when your childhood friend becomes your boss

the narrator was good. she did a great job between characters voices, I rather enjoyed listening to her. She made the story easier to keep on going. She had fluctuations in the voices.
the story itself was a bit dull. it started out well but then went down for me. it could be the heroine became more meek and whiny. She kept rehashing the issues from the childhood over and over. There was a lot of sexual kinky aspects. Times I felt the story went off track. It seemed the title and the story line didn't always mash.

Great book!

Great book! The main characters were both strong and likable. The author has given this plot more depth by having them know each other as kids. It also has some fantastic steam scenes lol The narrator did a fantastic job of keeping the story on a good pace. She also did a great job with the voices! Really enjoyed her performance. All in all, this audiobook was definitely 5 stars!

Hidden kinky side

So, there’s some hidden kink in these two. Which caught me off guard. Vanilla style office romance...wait, what did she say she wanted!? And right back to Vanilla style story. The narrator is amazing! The storyline itself is kinda wonky, but you still have an enjoyable listen. 🎧 AudiobookObsession
