Review: Bossed by Sloane Howell

BossedBossed by Sloane Howell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Scorching hot...(fans self) My first Sloane Howell novel and I loved it.

Ethan Mason is a Sports Agent and CEO of Mason & Associates. He's a generous employer but rules his workforce with an iron rod, micromanaging to ensure they perform 100% all the time. When he interviews Jenny Jackson, he can't believe she's the same woman who he literally bumped into only a few minutes earlier and astonished when she corrects him over incorrect data he quoted. Leaving him little choice but to hire her on the spot but not necessarily for her bookkeeping skills.

With mounting medical bills to pay, Jenny Jackson needs to secure the job she has an interview for but after getting knocked to the ground by a bad-tempered man in a suit, she's going to have to pull herself together to gain her composure. When she enters Mason & Associates she's surprised the CEO will be present at the interview and is even more shocked when he's the same bad tempered guy who bumped into her minutes earlier. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, she challenges him about misinformation and is even more astonished when he hires her on the spot.

Her physical appearance smacks prim and conservative but once she opens her mouth, Jenny is a formidable force. The champion of the underdog, she challenges Ethan when he humiliates a colleague before everyone. She's tough...brought up by her single father and more importantly a perfect match for Ethan. Ethan's has met his match, however, he's an expert at sabotaging his chances with Jenny. That said, I love that he's very conscious about his flaws and tries to wrong his rights after he's called out and made accountable for his behaviour. Even though his initial reaction is to retreat into himself, unable to handle situations he caused.

The result? An exciting roller-coaster of a ride with Ethan and Jenny's volatile temperaments generating combustible chemistry. With verbal sparring, acerbic retort and knee-jerk reactions before engaging their brains, there's never a dull moment! Balance and harmony are achieved courtesy of their best friends Kelsey and Matt who provide welcome wisdom and peace....phew!

4 stars
