Release Day Review! Bossed by Sloane Howell

Bossed by Sloane Howell
Genre: Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: March 28, 2017
Publisher: Loveswept

He’s the boss. But she’s ready to take charge.

In this provocative and sexy* office romance, a cheeky new hire tempts a hotshot sports agent to mix business with pleasure.

Jenny: Job interviews are a bitch under the best of circumstances, but when your potential boss is the world’s biggest prick, that’s when you should simply walk away. It’s just that I need this job so badly—and I’m mesmerized by Ethan Mason’s piercing gaze. Men like him aren’t supposed to exist in real life. But under the tailored suits and GQ looks, Ethan simmers with barely restrained ambition. And no matter how hard I work to fight the attraction, I’m going to get burned.

Ethan: You don’t become a top agent without learning how to close a deal. I always get what—or who—I want, by staying cool and in command. Then Jenny Jackson walks into my office with her lush curves and “screw you” attitude and blows away my intentions of keeping things professional. All I can think about is exploring the perfect body hidden beneath those conservative clothes or shutting her saucy mouth with one hot kiss. Jenny’s worth breaking the rules over—if I can convince her to break the rules for me.

*By sexy, we mean sexy. Like, 18+ sexy.

Bossed by Sloane Howell was an entertaining and quick read. I enjoyed Jenny's character quite a bit. She's quick and witty. She loves her family. She's funny. She knows how to put Ethan in his place and isn't afraid to. I loved those parts. Ethan, on the other hand, had a personality that contradicted itself. He comes off all Alpha jerk. He yells at people. They fear him. His business is the most important thing in his life, yada yada yada. Yet he stays home and hides/pouts when Jenny's mad at him or hurts his feelings. What? That doesn't make sense. He was so worried about making the same mistakes as his father, but it seemed like we would easily allow those very same things to happen if Jenny was anything like his mother. So, his character disappointed me a little. With all that being said, the story was pretty good. I'm not a sports girl, but it even made baseball seem cute. I really liked Matt, and I hope he gets his own story.. maybe with Kelsey? That would be a fun story too.

The ARC of Bossed by Sloane Howell was kindly provided to me by the publisher through NetGalley for review. The opinions are my own.

Sloane Howell lives in the Midwest United States and writes hot romance stories. A former college baseball player turned author, when not reading or writing he enjoys hanging out with his family, watching sports, playing with the dogs, traveling, and engaging his readers on social media. You can almost always catch him goofing off on Facebook or Twitter and trying to convince Mrs. Howell that it is "work"
