Goodreads page:

It is not very often that you find a story that can make you laugh, smile, and cry all at the same time. This story does just that. Vi Keeland brings us a couple that on the surface looks like it’s just going to be a fun romance, but peel back the layers and you see that there is something deeper going on here.

Case in point, Chase. Chase is that loveable playboy that you think is just trying to woo Reese after he sees her at a restaurant. And their first encounter? Probably the funniest first encounter I have ever read for two people. She is on an awful date with someone and is trying to use that old tactic of having a friend call and whisk her away on an emergency. Chase of course feels bad for the poor shmuck (but not bad enough not to crash the date).

Things get worse for Reese as she tries to get over that crush she developed for Chase but it only gets worse when Chase becomes her new boss. Now, she opens up a can of a whole new mess of problems. She’s been burned by an office romance in the past and doesn’t want a relationship with Chase to affect her job.

Sounds like an easy enough job right?

Now when you have Chase using every single opportunity he can to try and break her. And obviously she does break. You can’t really stand your own against a man like Chase. Let us be honest with one another. What Reese doesn’t know that she signed up for was the ghosts that Chase is ‘chasing’ (ha like that pun there) from. He holds a lot of guilt and it only gets worse as the story progresses.

When we finally get to the truth behind Chase’s past, you can’t help but feel for him. I mean, it’s hard to take what happened to him and try to move on. Guilt would eat at anyone. Vi Keeland does a great job at dropping subtle hints to Chase’s past without it overpowering the story. She creates character that you are rooting for from the beginning and never stop rooting for no matter how stupid one of them may act (Chase…achoo).

Bossman is a fun read that you will likely swallow up in one day. It’s funny, cute, and got those touching moments that will make you want more. It reminds me a lot of Emma Chase’s Tangled series, so if you like those books, then you will love this book as well.

Rating: A

You can buy Bossman on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and iBooks
