One look. One touch. One night.
If we break the rules, our lives will never be the same again.
If you’ve been looking for a HOT and HILARIOUS new book to fall in love with — an enemies-to-lovers romance that’ll make you laugh out loud and swoon — then you have to read this book!!! It’s about a sassy single mom who started a new job only to find that while her boss was incredibly gorgeous, he was also a complete asshat. Or so it seemed. They got off on waaay the wrong foot and their hate-to-love romance — not to mention the outrageous pranks they pulled on each other — almost made me cry with laughter. And when the sexual tension hidden behind their animosity finally exploded, things got HOTTTT!!! It was a fun, sex, and seriously fantastic read!
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…
Can I just say that one of my favorite things about this book was that I actually LOVED everything about it. That might sound weird to say but it’s true. Literally everything about it worked for me. The writing was strong and flowed so smoothly. I never wanted to put the book down. There was no stupid drama at all, the wit and sarcasm was on point, the banter and pranks had me in stitches laughing myself silly…
“John! Get the fuck in here,” I whisper-yell angrily through clenched teeth.
He walks in, and I close the door as he looks down and gasps, taking in the state of my balls. “What the fuck, dude?!”
“I don’t know what’s going on! I was sitting in the meeting when I felt a prickling sensation. I thought my pants were just tight. Dude.” I look down. “My balls.”
I look up again to see that John is standing there, a hand over his mouth, his eyes wide. “You need to go to the doctor. Jesus, do you think they’ll explode?” he wonders as he crouches down — a little too close considering our relationship — to get a better look.
“Get the fuck away from my balls, please.”
Once the main couple got together they were functional and fantastic together. There was just the right balance between hilarity, heat and swoon. There was great character development and more importantly great relationship development. There were just enough feels to ground the story but still keep the overall feeling light-hearted. And despite the pranks (which were AWESOME and HILARIOUS beyond all reason #swollenballs) the characters were actually really quite mature. This was also easily the funniest book I’ve read all year and one of the hottest!
“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 just… I just genuinely loved everything about the book. Plus, when a hero can be amazing with the kids of the woman he’s falling in love with, that’s just mega bonus points right there. It’s impossible not to swoon over that!
“Do you love my mommy?” Her question has my breath stopping in my chest…
“I love your mom more than you know,” he answers her, and me as well. His words bring tears to my eyes. There’s a softness, almost a reverence to his voice as if he’s talking to me, only me, as if we were alone. “I’ve never loved anyone the way I love your mom.”
I know, I know, this review is less polished than my norm but I literally just finished reading this book a few minutes ago and I’m just in major gush mode over how much I loved it right now!! I CAN’T STOP SMILING!!!
“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.”
You guys, this is the romantic comedy you’ve been waiting for! Just read it. You’ll thank me later!
