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.


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.


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.

This is the first book I have read by Sloane Howell, and I enjoyed it.  His writing is strong, the characters and the dialog seem realistic and I was involved with both of them from almost the beginning.  That said, I wasn't sure what I thought of their initial meeting, but once I got farther into the story, it absolutely did work.

Jenny and Ethan were interesting.  I liked their dynamic and I liked the passion that they both had, for one another, for the people in their lives, and for one another...the turn of this from adversaries to a couple was compelling.

The subplot with her father was interesting, and I thought a little heavy for the story as the relationship between Ethan and Jenny maintained a bit of a hard edge.  The 2 stories combined, in my opinion, drew away from the romance of the story.  

I thought the ending was a little odd, as the focus was drawn away from the relationship with Ethan and Jenny.

That said, I liked it overall.  The writing was strong.  I liked the characters and while it did seem a little heavy, the story itself was interesting.  I thought there were small issues with the pacing as mentioned above, but I did enjoy the story overall.

I recommend this book.
