Coldhearted Boss by R. S. Grey

Book Description:

Published: June 6, 2019

Format: Audio/Audible

 

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.

Review –

This was my first read/listen by R. S Grey and I loved it. Taylor’s character was my favorite.  I loved how determined and driven she was. If you want a strong willed, fierce heroine – look no further than Taylor. Her character was the strongest part of this book for me.

I also gotta give Coldhearted Boss it’s props because this one really delivers on enemies-to-lovers (a favorite genre of mine)and slow-burn romance. I mean this is ~SLOW~ burn  The banter was great for enemies-to-lovers, and the tension between Taylor and Ethan was amazing.

I loved how they were forced into a “live together” situation and they tried their best to out do one another by causing tension and heat between them. The “enemy” part of the story seemed to go on and on but finally they gave in to their desires and started a relationship and the epilogue was fantastic, almost tears worthy.

If you enjoy “enemies to lovers” contemporary romances with humor thrown in, add this one to your TBR list. You won’t regret it.

osslyn found perfection once, and she knows she’ll never find it again. Now widowed, she seeks the one thing her beloved husband couldn’t give her. Dominance.

And so he’s waited in the wings, offering Joss unconditional support and comfort as she works past her grief, hoping for the day when he can offer her more.

What she needs. As realization sets in, he is gripped by fierce, unwavering determination. If she wants dominance, he is the only man who will introduce her to that world. He is the only man who will touch her, cherish her…love her. And the only man she’ll ever submit to.

Review –

Although this is a erotic romance and there is plenty of steamy explicit sex, it is also a story of starting over, loving again and LETTING GO!  Some erotica authors write sex for sex sake but Maya Banks does it unobtrusively and with such immesne feeling that no one else can match.

 Loved it and now listening in my car to the second in the trilogy.

Review –

I rated this book five stars *****

This novella is told from Cameron Cole’s point of view and we discover that he fell for Mia the very first day she trespassed into his BDSM club but found it difficult to admit that,even to himself.

Cameron and Mia are in a good place, they have told each other that the feelings they have are love and are committed to one another and you would think that everything is going to be hunky dorky BUT Cameron’s ex comes into the picture. They were like two or three weeks from walking down the aisle and Cameron backs out. Now his ex is seeing a psychologist that Cameron has thought highly of in the past, but now begins to wonder. She has requested that Cameron sit in on sessions with her so she can get “closure”. It’s been like five years or more and she’s just now wanting “closure”?  Not by a long shot. She wants him back and tells him so. When Mia finds out she is immediately jealousy and thinks right away that Cameron doesn’t love her after all. His ex is beautiful and well-educated and she’s not.

On top of that, Cameron wants Mia to sign an agreement that should their relationship end she will receive from him a sizable amount of money. Mia doesn’t want his money and tells him so.

In betwixt and between Cameron gives Mia an antique ruby collar(choker) that belonged to his grandmother and one day he notices she isn’t wearing and it and she tells him that she didn’t want to lose it. Rumors are floating around that Mia is secretly seeing someone at the soup kitchen and may have given it to him for drugs or whatever. Cameron notices that a man connected to Mia’s horrible past life is working at the soup kitchen. Somehow, he slipped through the security check all hopeful employees have to go through. It is then discovered that the choker had been ripped off Mia’s neck and at the end of the novella Mia has been kidnapped and Cameron is determined to get her back because she isn’t only his lover but his LIFE.

I CAN NOT wait for the next installment coming out later this month.
