Because murder is cheaper than therapy.

Tatum Wood murders her boss on a daily basis. Daydreams, real dreams, it doesn’t matter. In her opinion, it’s better than therapy. That is until he takes a swan dive off the roof of a building and all evidence points to her as the main suspect.

Enter Franklin Reed, her mysterious, overprotective and drop-dead gorgeous coworker. His inj

Because I daydream of ripping my employer's dick and shoving it down his throat.

That feeling still stand after reading this book.


Yeah yeah, we are all have this dirty-dirty-that's-so-evil thoughts in our mind every time some idiots think they can disrespect us.

Or maybe, some of us do.

This book caught my attention because of the title. It was at that time that I want to slap my ex-boss senseless because he is a douchebag, a jerk, an asshole, a son of a bitch, a motherfucking ASF@GD$%!

loved this one! lots of fun to read, & great chemistry between Tate & Frankie. Tatum must be so dense lol, I had Frankie pegged as some kind of undercover agent almost straight away, she still didn't get it when he tried to tell her!

I received this ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The gist: Tatum works for a PI company. Her boss is the epitome of awful. She fantasizes about killing her boss daily, in both her day and night dreams. When he ends up dead, all the evidence points at Tatum. Franklin is Tatum's new coworker and they struck up a friendship. The heat between them is palpable, even through my Kindle. As people start dying all around Tatum, Franklin becomes her personal bodyguard. The only thing is

Intriguing, Suspense Filled, Hot Romance

This story was a really good read. It's a mix of Murder Mystery meets HOT Romance Story.: Tatum was a girl that grew up being Loved. Her Father was her world, her Hero. Always there for her till he passes away, taking it hard not having her protected/father anymore. Now all grown up she gets a job at Cruse Investigations a company her father started but after a few years tired of it and sold it to his good friend Mr. Cruise. Growing up her boss (Mr. Cruise
This book was funny and it made me laugh at loud at some parts however to really enjoy it you have to be able to suspend disbelief. Normally, I can do that with books but I wasn't able to do so with this book. No matter how hard I tried to ignore it, the hero freaked me! He was a stalker, an obsessive control freak. Let's just say if I spent five minutes with him and he fixated on me like that, I'd be leaving the city I live in, maybe even the country! Which is why I didn't get why the heroine, ...more

I received a copy of this story from NetGalley for an honest review for The Reading Room Blog.

Who hasn’t imagined killing their boss? How to Kill Your Boss is an incredibly exciting read that combines the humor of horrible boss homicide fantasies with scorching erotic romance. I could not put this book down. You should definitely check out How to Kill Your Boss for yourself.

When I picked up this book I wasn't quite sure what to think. To say I was pleasantly surprised, well, that would be an understatment. This book rocked!! There was so much going on in this story that most of the time I wasn't sure which way was up. Krissy Daniels, you had my nerves shot.. in a good way. What started out like a light hearted "I hate my boss" story ended up being packed so full of suspen

How can you pass up a book with a title like that?

Tatum is in her mid-20s and works her dull, dead-end job at Cruse Investigations, a company that was originally started by her father. She hates working for Wallace Cruse, the man who considered her father his mentor, because he’s a bit of a lecherous old man. When Franklin Reed shows up as the agency’s newest employee, things start to look up for Tatum. Although there is

“I protect what's mine. At any cost.”
How To Kill Your Boss was humorous, suspenseful and HOT! The heroine, Tatum, works at a PI investigations firm that was once owned by her father but eventually given to Wallace Cruse, the star of her fantasies. Not her sexual fantasies mind you, she dreams about killing him. When Mr. Cruse winds up dead, all evidence points to her.

The story was told solely in Tate's pov. I loved Tate! She had sass and a backbone. She often said whatever was on her mind wi
How to Kill Your Boss begins with Tatum having a new coworker start at her job with the boss she dreams about murdering. This coworker is named Franklin, and he's probably every girls dream guy. And Tatum wishes he was her's as well, but sometimes that can't happen. But when dead bodies start appearing all around Tatum, and she seems to have a weird stalker, Franklin steps in to help her out. The problem is she wants him and he wants her, but Franklin has lots of secrets that Tatum isn't so sure ...more

How Kill Your Boss

This is a new author for me and so I was hesitant to write a review but since I usually read reviews, well its only fair that I share my two cents.

First off, this book was written in the first person. This is something that I normally don't like to read but the very first chapter had me smiling so I dug it. ;)

The ways in which to "kill your boss" were hilarious, outrageous & very creative. That was the best part of the book. The female lead, Tatum Wood, was likeable, humorous

"How to Kill Your Boss" surprised me. As soon as I read the synopsis I knew I had to read it. It sounded like my kind of book and it most definitely was.

Tatum dreams about killing her boss on a daily basis and she enjoys it. Until the day that he is murdered and all the evidence starts pointing at her.

Franklin is Tatum's mysterious co-worker with a bevy of dark secrets and things he can't and won't talk about. But one thing he makes abundantly clear is that he wants Tatum. Together they go on

This book was interesting. The dreams that Tatum had about her boss had me laughing and even picturing my ex boss in some of them.

Tatum Wood is a character that confused me sometimes but I ended up really liking her. There were times I wanted to smack her upside the head and tell her to use her head but her personality was awesome. She was extremely funny. The way she handled some of the situations so found herself in took courage.

Franklin Reed is one hot, crazy ass man! He is alpha, sexy, over

I was gifted this book for an honest review. This is the first book I've read by Ms. Daniels, and all I can say is, WOW!! So many unexpected twists and turns to plot of this story! For those of you that need the "hot scenes," there is plenty, but the story itself will have you drawn in from the beginning!
Tatum Wood doesn't need her job. She inherited plenty from her father, but working for Mr. Cruse helped her stay grounded. She actually never liked Cruse and would constantly entertain the idea

This book is right up my alley. It kept my attention cover to cover and I mean literally. I could not put it down.

Tatum- One Date Tatum.. This girl, I kind of hated her in the beginning of the book. Her attitude and way of thinking kind of put me off. Smart girl, honest to a fault and still has so many personality flaws.

Franklin- Holy batman. This man had me very intrigued from the word go. I honestly couldn't tell you what my thoughts were in the beginning of the book. As

I loved Franklin right off the bat, "the pleasure is all mine." Franklin tilted his head as if inviting me to admire him." Tate I loved her wild mouth she has on her, "as a matter of fact, Frankie, I check out your rump at least three hundred and twenty-five times a day. I'd appreciate it if you'd stop wearing your suit jacket at work. It covers that fine tush of yours, and when it's hidden, it puts me in a foul mood." She also loves to challenge her man, "wow.

My oh my! It's confirmed Krissy Daniels can write!! Fantastic story, unpredictable which to me is one of the best cards an Author can play. Certainly my ideal kind of book. It is not an intense crime novel which some may assume based on the gun featuring on the cover, let's just say crime features but is light.
Fantastic writing, once the story got going I could have read it in one sitting. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and as soon as I have finished typing I am headed to see if by chance Krissy

I felt there was a bit too much happening here to get five stars. Mysterious, dangerous co-worker. Stalker. Framed for murder. Drug cartel. Dad not who he seemed to be. Jealous, attractive Ex.....OMG, how did Tatum survive all this? I felt the H held on to his secrets a little too long, but I am a sucker for the dedicated, obsessed type, so I could just eat him all up. The comedy sustained the first half, the action-suspense the second half. I prob won't re-read this, but I loved, loved, loved F ...more

Move over E.L. James. At the risk of sounding trite, I simply couldn't put this book down. The sex scenes left me salivating,but beyond that, the dialogue is tight, the plot fast-paced, and the writing crisp and original. This is simply the best book I've read...ever. I ordered this book yesterday, slept a scant four hours and finished it this morning. Daniels is one "hot" author. I will read every book she writes.

What a wild ride

This book has more than just romance. It has mystery, lies, kidnapping, murder, stalking, secrets and so much more. But it has a great love story.
