I’m desperate and destitute when Lockwood Construction rolls into my small town with an offer too good to pass up: high wages to any able-bodied man willing to join their crew.
Say no more. I throw on baggy clothes, tuck my long hair under a baseball hat, and apply for a job. Unfortunately, my half-baked idea of disguising myself as a guy is flawed from the beginning. As Shakira says, these hips don’t lie.
Still, I like to think I might have pulled the whole thing off save for one thing:
I know my boss.
Last month, we met at a bar, and after a fiery first encounter, it seems we’re destined to be sworn enemies.
Ethan Stone is ruthless and arrogant, a man I never would have crossed had I known how much he likes to toy with his prey.
He should just fire me and be done with it. Instead, he decides to make me his personal slave. Oh right, I think they’re calling it personal “assistant” these days.
It’s torture, all of it—his bad attitude, his ruggedly chiseled face, his desire to grind me into dust.
Every one of our friction-filled battles burns hotter than the last.
A girl can only hold out for so long. Soon, I’m bound to go up in flames.
My objective? Survive the heat long enough to send home a paycheck.
My real objective? Stop having X-rated fantasies about my coldhearted boss.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
My Rating: 4.5 Stars
Is there anything better than an amazing hate to love romance to kick off your summer? I think not! There is nothing quite like sitting outside, sipping a cold drink and reading a wonderfully adorable, steamy romance to kick off the summer months.
Ethan and Taylor had an enemies to lovers relationship with chemistry that just leapt off the page for me. Taylor was sassy and wonderful, Ethan was charming as hell but couldn’t help his attitude towards Taylor. Their little battles made the book that much more fun for me as a reader.
Coldhearted Boss was filled with RS Grey’s trademark humor and sass, but I also loved the way that Taylor and Ethan’s relationship developed. Taylor was such a relatable character with her financial struggles and her desire to stand on her own two feet.
I was actually a little bit torn with my rating because the hate part of their story seemed to drag a bit longer than expected, but one of my biggest complaints with hate to love romance stories is that the characters tend to get over their issues too quickly for the trope to feel genuine. With Taylor and Ethan, that was definitely not the case at all!
Overall, Coldhearted Boss is a great addition to my RS Grey collection and I can’t wait to see what she has for us next!
