Going back to work was supposed to be a painless transition, but when my new boss turns out to be an arrogant, cocky jerk, he quickly turns my professional life into a world of torture. Okay, fine, calling him an asshat before knowing he was my boss wasn't my finest moment. Hating him should be easy. I just never counted on him being so gorgeous or charming when he's not annoying me.
I expected my new assistant to be professional and punctual, but all I'm getting are dirty looks and rude comments. I should fire the little hellion, but instead all I can think about is bending her over my desk and breaking every rule I've ever made for myself.
One look. One touch. One night. If we break the rules, our lives will never be the same again.
Good thing rules were made to be broken. And besides, it feels so good to Tempt the Boss.
I liked Lauren and Austin, I liked their journey and evolution as characters. I liked the way it was handled. I really appreciated that you were there with Lauren, and with Austin as they had realizations about the situation that showed the ways in which they were changing and how being together was actually something they each wanted.
Natasha Madison has a writing style that really appeals to me. In the first books of hers I read, Hell and Back and Pieces of Heaven, they were 2 separate stories that overlapped, so you saw the same story but from a different angle/POV. In Tempt the Boss, we get the POV change with Lauren and Austin, and we get to see some of the events as they happen to both of them...there is minor repetition of dialog, which serves as a way to set the scene very effectively, so you are able to easily follow along while getting the other side of the story.
The dialog and the writing are clean. There were a couple of places where I thought the way something was written was slightly off, but this happens, as different authors write differently, and it was nothing that pulled me out of the story.
They say you can't judge a book by it's cover. And, while this is true...I have to admit that this cover really works for me. And, you will be glad to know the insides of this one are just as good as the outside promises.
I recommend this book.
When her nose isn't buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she's in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It's a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn't listen to her...
