Vi Keeland is one of my
favorite go to authors. My fondness for her stories all began with Nico in “Worth the Fight” and with each
subsequent read, I fell a little more in love with her writing style and
characters ~ especially her luscious heroes. “Bossman” did not disappoint. It was just as steamy hot as the
gorgeous man on the cover. A sweet, heartfelt romance filled with loads of passion,
moments of laughter and a hint of drama. Sexual tensions ran high as I was
immediately hooked within Chase and Reese’s world.
Reese Annesley’s a strong
willed and sassy New York City girl who’s down on her luck when it comes to her
career and love life. While in the midst of a boring date from hell, she
crosses paths with the dynamic Chase Parker. He’s drop dead sexy, charismatic,
overly confident, and a colorful storyteller. I loved how his magnetic
personality managed to both attract and piss off Reese from the moment they met.
He definitely caught her attention; despite the fact their first encounter was
a rocky. Reese was immediately consumed and intrigued by all things Chase,
which put her in a precarious position when hired at Parker Industries…Chase’s corporation.
I liked Reese’s cheekiness
and wit. She was sassy and stubborn, which caused oodles of tension in the story-line, as she fought her attraction to Chase. It had me on edge at times, patiently anticipating
the moment where she finally…finally caved. Reese certainly took her time surrendering to her
I adored the tall, dark, handsome
and oh so charming Chase. Loved his relentless pursuit to bed Reese, not giving
a crap she was an employee. Although mostly funny and quick witted, Chase had
an air of mystery surrounding his character. He slowly unraveled all the
reasons why he was total commitment phobe. The complicated love affair with the
feisty Reese not only heated up in the bedroom, but it stirred feelings and
fears buried deep within Chase’s heart.
Chase was an incredibly lovable hero that had me swooning. I adored his personality, which oozed so
much sexiness. But man, was he a stubborn boy at times. Consumed by past
heartache and anxieties, Chase made some poor decisions. I wanted to (lovingly)
bop him over the head and snap him out of his funk while reading the last few
chapters. Nevertheless, even though he vexed me at times, his character shined.
My heart went out to Chase, seeing all his sorrow, guilt and regrets.
All in all, another enjoyable
and well-written romance from Vi. From beginning to end this read held me from
the funny, lighthearted moments, through to the emotionally driven heartaches.
I must confess that I wanted more insight into this couple’s future and explore
their relationship further. That happens to me sometimes when I become invested
within the lives of certain characters. Regardless, “Bossman” was a hit for me and it had all the feels. I highly recommend this fun and flirty read.
