The first time I met Chase Parker, I didn’t exactly make a good impression.
I was hiding in the bathroom hallway of a restaurant, leaving a message for my best friend to save me from my awful date.
He overheard and told me I was a bitch, then proceeded to offer me some dating advice.
So I told him to mind his own damn business—his own tall, gorgeous, full-of-himself damn business—and went back to my miserable date.
When he walked by my table, he smirked, and I watched his arrogant, sexy ass walk back to his date.
I couldn’t help but sneak hidden glances at the condescending jerk on the other side of the room. Of course, he caught me on more than one occasion, and winked.
When the gorgeous stranger and his equally hot date suddenly appeared at our table, I thought he was going to rat me out.
But instead, he pretended we knew each other and joined us—telling elaborate, embarrassing stories about our fake childhood.
My date suddenly went from boring to bizarrely exciting.
When it was over and we parted ways, I thought about him more than I would ever admit, even though I knew I’d never see him again.
I mean, what were the chances I’d run into him again in a city with eight million people?
Then again…
What were the chances a month later he’d wind up being my new sexy boss?

My Review

“Don’t focus on the what ifs. Focus on what is.”

Bossman by VI Keeland is a standalone friends-to-lovers, contemporary romance novel.

“Please, Mr. Parker. It will be coming from these lips…mark my words.”

Reese Annesley wants more from her life than a job and relationships that will never show progression. Chase Parker didn’t know that he could want again until he met Reese.

“You didn’t put up that wall to keep him out. You put it up to watch him break it down to get to you.”

Told in dual points of view Bossman was a funny, sexy, and irresistible read that was like a cool breeze on a hot day; it just felt so darn good. It was a major play on the thrill of the chase, with its slow build and sexy innuendos. I adored the mutual respect Reese and Chase had for one another in business. Each encouraging one another in their jobs and skills.  But one of my favorite qualities of their budding relationship was the tales they could tell. It was what anchored me to this story, giving it an almost magical feel. The underlying story lines that helped shape the hero and heroine’s adult lives endeared me to them, creating a greater desire for healing.

“I’m tired of looking back. It’s been a long time since I’ve wanted to live in the moment.”

When the pique moment of sadness came, I couldn’t contain the immense amount of tears that drenched my cheeks.  I was a mess. I wanted to tear through the pages and correct all the wrongs that had been done. But, much to my delight, Author Vi Keeland was the broken heart mender and made the world sit right on its axis again. Bossman was another great book for this author to add to her ever-growing list of must-reads.

“It was beautiful and tender, and I felt it in a place I never knew another human being could touch – my soul.”
