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.

*****FIVE STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

He’s under my skin and going nowhere, and even when we’re not together, my annoyance and hatred of him seem to fester. He’s just so…so arrogant! And rude! And coldhearted!


COLDHEARTED BOSS is “second-chance-romance” at its best! I loved the main characters and their chemistry was nothing short of combustible. The plot was wildly entertaining. It felt like no time had passed before I found myself at the end of the epilogue. I would have loved if the book had gone on for at least ten more chapters!!

Ethan and Taylor don’t have your typical ”meet-cute”. It starts off sexy as hell but then a momentary lapse of judgment ends with Taylor regretting her decision. Her only saving grace is that she’ll never have to see the handsome man in the suit again since he was probably just breezing through her small town for a business trip.

Taylor finds out about a job on a construction site that pays good money and she is so desperate to help care for her little sister and mother, that she will risk being harassed on a job site full of men in order to provide for her family. She never expected that her boss would be the suit she nearly had sex with, in a dirty bar bathroom.

Ethan hasn’t forgotten the beautiful thief who bewitched him over a month ago and while he is still furious with her he can’t fight the strong attraction he has towards her as well. It’s going to be a long summer where the two will be forced to share close quarters. They’re both really good at pushing each other’s buttons but how long will they be able to deny the desires they feel burning up inside??

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 4.5
Plot: 5
Angst: 4.5
Steam: 4.5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

COLDHEARTED BOSS is currently available. R.S Grey fans will not be disappointed!
