Meet the Author:
Stella Rhys is an author of contemporary romance and can’t help but write it hot, steamy and borderline filthy (just kidding, it’s flat-out filthy). Writing aside, she lives for coffee, the Yankees and cooking recipes way out of her league. She was born and raised in New York and now lives there with her husband and charmingly entitled fur baby.
Stella absolutely loves talking to her readers so don’t be shy!
Genre: Contemporary Romance
He was supposed to be my first and only one-night stand.
He was definitely never supposed to become my boss.
I had always been the good girl – the workaholic with every second of her life mapped out to a tee.
Then I got trapped in an elevator with Julian Hoult.
He was… irresistible. Sophisticated sex in a crisp white shirt. His voice alone dropped me straight to my knees. What was I supposed to do?
I can tell you what I was definitely not supposed to do.
I was not supposed to run into him ever again. I was not supposed to be desperately unemployed, and I was definitely not supposed to accept his dirty little job offer.
But I couldn’t resist.
As CEO of the Hoult Media empire, Julian will stop at nothing to get what he wants. So for his next venture with Manhattan’s most lecherous billionaires, he’s hired me to play the role of bait. And while my official title is that of Executive Assistant, my actual job requires low tops, tight skirts and flaunting everything I’ve got till his clients are easy to bend – till they can barely think for themselves anymore.
It’s sleazy and wrong. Against everything I’ve worked for. But with Julian as my audience, I can’t help but enjoy every second. Thanks to him, I’m embracing the bad, and I swear…
I’ve never in my life felt this damned good.
Bad Boss is super steamy! Like…super steamy folks. The sex scenes are abundant and off the charts hot! Like panty melting, body scorching, hot as hell, type of steamy. I’m talking sex anywhere and anytime people! Julian and Sara are DTF anywhere and ERRRRYYYWHERE! If you’re looking for a sweet, hand-holding, quick peck on the lip kind of romance, keep it moving. This is more like THE HUBSTER’S GETTING SOME TONIGHT kind of hot.
Okay, now that we’ve covered the highlights let’s do the breakdown:
Sarah is overworked and under-appreciated in her current job. On a whim, she quits and decides to have a weekend of fun before shifting back to uber-professional mode. While waiting on an elevator and discussing exactly how wild and free she plans to get, she notices a handsome stranger behind her. Needless to say, he overheard everything and takes her up on her offer of a one night stand. They’re interrupted in the middle of the “festivities” and she leaves quickly. He can’t stop thinking of him and she can’t stop talking about him. Luckily, they run into each other again very soon. A scheme is hatched, plans are made, but the situation ends up pushing the together more than they considered.
What I enjoyed:
See 1st paragraph re: Smoking Hot Sex ERRRRYYYYWHERE! LOL
Don’t get sidetracked by the steamy bits though. The story is fun and flirty, yet it’s also emotional at times. These two characters have the most unexpected backstories I’ve read in a while. I enjoyed getting to know them and watching them heal from the scars of their past.
The true win for me was the ending. I was a very happy camper at the end.
Overall, a very good read from Stella Rhys! Grab your copy while I go cool down. Enjoy!
