Life had dealt me so many curveballs, Struggle became my middle name.
Wouldn’t it be nice for once not to have to fight for what I want?
Enter: Mr. Perfect Stranger.
He promised me a time to remember.
I can safely vouch he kept his promise. All. Night. Long.
Trouble is, his family bought the company I work for.
And his first order of business was to remind me that I left him…
Without saying goodbye.
But that’s not the worst of it.
He wants to pick up where we left off.
Last time, I barely escaped from falling. Who’s to say that this time, I’ll be the one asking him to stay?
Bossed Up by the Billionaire is a dual POV Contemporary Romance with no cliffhanger, no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA.
Read an Excerpt
From the chapter The Snare of a Web
And just like that, I’m in high school all over again. From the time I was born, I’ve been in the 75th height percentile. That means I’m a smidge over average. Royce Grayson towers over me. He was a big man when I met him two years ago, and he’s even bigger now.
He could do some serious damage.
And I sure as hell want him to.
“Royce, give me my phone.”
His grin spells trouble. His words even more so. “That’s all I was waiting for, Sin. I wanted to hear my name come out of that damn sexy mouth of yours. I’ve been thinking about it all day.” He places the phone in my palm and his slight touch lights a trail of fire up my arm.
I ignore the sensation and glance at my phone. Besides a thin crack on the left-hand side, close to the top, the screen now has a spider web of lines starting in the lower right corner and progressing to the middle in a wide arc.
Terrific. Fine. Whatever.
My annoyance with him and his kind comes out in the harshness of my tone. “Don’t call me ‘Sin,'” I say, stuffing my phone in my bag. I’m going to the bar. To hell with this.
Whatever this is.
I loop my bag over my shoulder and take a step forward to brush past him.
He stands in my way. “We need to talk.”
I ignore the hope blooming in my chest. It’s not right. It’s not right.
I’ll flat out admit that this book was NOT what I was expecting. It took me a while to get into it but once I did, BAM…Slow to start but once Royce and Genesis meet up again, the plot definitely thickens. However, this isn’t your typical billionaire book. In some ways it is but what I felt was a bit different was the characters, Thomas and Tiffany. Especially, Tiffany. Ooo, how I loved her. She was the perfect sounding board for Royce. And I loved her honesty and I will leave at that. I really would like her book. Thanks in advance.
Genesis is just one of those heroines that you just want to hug. Ms. Holt lays out her backstory in small bites so you are not overwhelmed. She really had to overcome some obstacles early on in her life and then the big life changer didn’t help matters. Enter Royce and the one-night stand. Talk about hawt. But trust me, there are more scenes like that but they made sense. The sex between them is emotional and helps both of them grow into themselves and as a couple. Trust isn’t easy to come by with them but it does grow.
I loved Royce. Billionaire? Check. Alphahole? Nope. He was actually pretty sweet in the end but it was kinda rough going. Some men are just blind and have to mess up to learn. His loyalty to his grandfather is perfect. The old man is a total pill but his heart is in the right place. Royce’s backstory isn’t pretty but I appreciate how Ms. Holt developed his relationships with Thomas and his grandfather because of it. Again, Ms. Holt takes her time unfolding his story for us and while heartbreaking, it made him the man he is now.
Again, this book surprised me. Took me a while to get into but once I did, I was hooked. If I had one complaint, what happened to Natalie, the co-worker? Give yourself some time to get into and you won’t be sorry. Once, Royce has a meeting with his grandfather about the company…yep, no spoilers.
