J.A. Huss never wanted to be a writer and she still dreams of that elusive career as an astronaut. She originally went to school to become an equine veterinarian but soon figured out they keep horrible hours and decided to go to grad school instead. That Ph.D wasn’t all it was cracked up to be (and she really sucked at the whole scientist thing), so she dropped out and got a M.S. in forensic toxicology just to get the whole thing over with as soon as possible.

After graduation she got a job with the state of Colorado as their one and only hog farm inspector and spent her days wandering the Eastern Plains shooting the shit with farmers. After a few years of that, she got bored. And since she was a homeschool mom and actually does love science, she decided to write science textbooks and make online classes for other homeschool moms. She wrote more than two hundred of those workbooks and was the number one publisher at the online homeschool store many times, but eventually she covered every science topic she could think of and ran out of shit to say.

So in 2012 she decided to write fiction instead. That year she released her first three books and started a career that would make her a New York Times bestseller and land her on the USA Today Bestseller’s List eighteen times in the next three years. Her books have sold millions of copies all over the world, the audio version of her semi-autobiographical book, Eighteen, was nominated for a Voice Arts Award and an Audie award in 2016 and 2017 respectively, her audiobook Mr. Perfect was nominated for a Voice Arts Award in 2017, and her book, Taking Turns, was nominated for an Audie Award in 2018. Johnathan McClain is her first (and only) writing partner and even though they are worlds apart in just about every way imaginable, it works.

She lives on a ranch in Central Colorado with her family.

Mr. Corporate is the third book in JA Huss’s Mister’s series. Weston Conrad is Mr. Corporate but lets be clear here- he probably should have been named Mr. Romantic. Weston was a great hero who had a sweet, sexy and romantic side.

Mr. Corporate is different than the first two books in the seres because it’s a second chance romance. Weston and Victoria dated off and on for quite a while through college but things didn’t end well with them.
We’re in this endless pattern of destruction. We’re a trainwreck. A plane crash. A hurricane of nothing-will-ever-come-of-this. Ever.

The last thing Victoria Arias expects when she gets called for a job is to run into her ex, Weston. Victoria is a stubborn woman. That’s one of the main reasons she and West aren’t together anymore. This job she’s working, she’s not working with Mr. Corporate, she’s pitted against him. They had this love/hate thing going on, but you could tell West still loved her and she has feelings for him.

There is a romance rekindling between West and Tori, but on top of that there is tons of suspense and mystery. Once again, someone is messing with the Mister’s. Weston is determined to find out who, with the help of our two Misters who have yet to be written about- Mr. Mysterious and Mr. Match.

I loved a cameo that was made by one of my favorite Julie characters! It was great! This book has a great mix of romance and mystery. I’m anxious to see where the rest of the series goes. And especially read Mr. Match’s book!

Someone’s fucking with the Misters again, and I seriously want to know who it is and why! This series is about a bunch of guys who met in college. They became inextricably tied to each other and dubbed the misters because of one tragic and public accusation. Now someone’s targeted them, again. And it’s Weston Conrad’s, aka Mr. Corporate, turn.

While the mystery surrounding these men continues to unravel and gets more complicated with the lies, secrets and betrayals, it also got clearer. Or maybe not. You see, if you’re a Huss fan, you’ll know that nothing is ever as it seems and just when you think you’ve figured it out, wham! The rug gets pulled out from beneath you!

 photo MRC2_zpsa9swxnw4.jpg

West, head hunter extraordinaire, and his ex-girlfriend/love of his life, Victoria Arias (Tori), end up vying for the same job. Tori is wild, head-strong and hot-tempered, and sexy.

“Because that’s the kind of girl Victoria Arias is. Wild. It’s her default setting.”

And West certainly is no slouch either.

The serious tension, sexual and otherwise, between West and Tori was verra, verra good and palpable. And the emotions, hot and cold, that ran deep and wide between these two was ever present.

“Too busy looking for what we want and not realizing nearly enough of what we have.”

While this was very much about the five misters, it was also very much about West and Tori’s past, in more than one way. This was a second chance love story with mystery and intrigue, buried secrets and lies, among other things.

“Everything about Tori and me is real. Except all the things that aren’t.”

“…there has never been another woman in my life like her and there never will be.”

Really enjoyed both Corporate and Tori. Two strong characters who fought hard and loved even harder.

Of course, things come to a head and while more clues are revealed and some things put to rest, we're still left with missing pieces! This is part of the Mister series and while the first four books can be read in any order, Mr. Match should be read as the fifth and final book.

If you haven’t meet the Misters, you should. A girl always needs a few more book boyfriends. Although I must say, Mr. Mysterious is mine. #Claimed.

Mr. Corporate is the 3rd in the Stand-Alone Series, The Misters from NYT Best Selling author JA Huss. The series will consist of five books, the first four can be read in ANY order, but Mr. Match, should be read last.

Review two

Weston Conrad is Mr. Corporate and boy does he have a closet full of secrets. In true JA fashion, this entire story was unexpected and an edge of your seat thrill ride. I ended up reading a few old reviews from prior works from this author and I had to laugh over the number of times I commented about this author’s ability to always surprise me and to keep me on my toes. But it is the truth. I always try to piece together the clues in the book, in a weak attempt to figure out where she is taking us, and every single time she surprises me.

Review four

Now on to my Mister ;)

Weston is a headhunter. The best in the business. Ten years after being accused of that heinous crime, he’s made quite the name for himself. But he’s pitted against a rival in the industry for this latest job. Victoria Arias. But Tori isn’t just a competitor, she’s a former lover. The woman that stood by his side ten years ago and broke his heart as he broke hers. The one that got away, the one he never stopped loving. But now they are stuck. Stranded. And suddenly it’s not about a job. It’s about them. And their past. And the past that links these five former college kids together.

Fuckin’ Julie. Mother fuck. Fuck. This book. It was ... fucking good.

The first 60% of this story was this constant tug of war. Sexually fueled, push and mother fucking pull. You start to get these slices of their relationship back at Brown. The struggle of wills when West wants Tori to need him and Tori is hell bent on not ever needing anyone. But it was all about the buildup. All these pieces being stacked atop one another. All these questions put out there just waiting for the other shoe to drop. You knew that something big was coming. You could feel it. Like the calm before the storm. And then all hell broke loose.

Review three

As I reached the final 40% of this book, I was white-knuckling my kindle. The calm was over and we were in the middle of the storm. Zero to a million fucking miles per hour. I was on the edge of my seat. I was trying to figure out who to trust, who to believe. I was trying to figure out what in the mother fuck was happening. The action sequences in this book read like blockbuster movies on the big screen.

But after having a night to sit on this book I have come to the conclusion that my favorite part of this book was Mr. Corporate’s heart. He gives Mr. Romantic a run for his money in the name department. There are so many parts where you get this raw version of him. Genuine and sincere. So damn real that my heart ached.

Review one

Each one of these books has had such a unique feel. The sexy times we get with West & Tori are steamy and hot, but there was this quality of sweetness to it all. Even with his dirty mouth, there was such feeling there between these two. It wasn’t just sex between former lovers. It was love. And it shined through flawlessly.

Since the first four in this series can be read out of order, there are no big reveals to the full story, I expect that beyond Mr. Match’s story – every single thing will come together perfectly. But this did give a great lead into Pax’s (Mr. Mysterious) story and that little bit of lead in, has me salivating for it already. For those that are #SuperFans like myself, you will love the little gems in this.

And just so we are clear, these Misters are mine. #MrsToTheMisters #YesAllOfThem #GreedyWhore #DealWithIt

★★★★★ 5 Stars ★★★★★

This series seriously gets better and better, and whilst each book can be read as a standalone, I am completely enjoying the mystery that links each 'Mister' together. There is so much suspense and plenty of excitement that keeps me turning the pages. Plus Mr. Corporate had one of my favourite elements that I love in a romance book - love/hate!

“Why are we so hot and cold? Why are we so on and off? So all or nothing? Friends or enemies?”

Weston Conrad aka Mr. Corporate is a headhunter, and is completely brutal and the best at his job. His ex-girlfriend and rival, Victoria Arias is a volatile and highly independent woman who is counting on this particular headhunt to save her from a downfall that she is determined must not happen and will fight to the death. They are pitched against each other to secure someone for a job, but nothing is what it seems and they end up stranded on a desert island with each other, with dangerous consequences.

“I hate you.” “I know,” he says, good-naturedly. “But I’ll still take care of you if you’re alone, Tori. Don’t worry.”

The dynamic between West and Tori was explosive! I loved how completely bonkers she was, she was a passionate woman who had balls, and she was one of the most interesting heroine's I have read in a long time. West never stopped loving Tori, and although he is not one to let anyone walk all over him, he was determined to prove to her that he meant business when he said he wanted her - all or nothing.

This book for me was pure pleasure, and I can't wait to read more from the other Misters.

Mr. Corporate is a standalone erotic romance, told in dual POV. Part of an overall series with an ongoing story arc.

So you would think Mr. Perfect and Mr. Romantic would win my heart with their given moniker but it’s actually Mr. Corporate. I personally think Mr. Corporate should have been given the epithet of Mr. Romantic since I found him to be more romantic especially when it came to matters of the heart.

 photo 94d4bec24e243e993036f2420dccfb_zpsev2ekfbz.gif “I don’t believe I can do anything right when it comes to Victoria Arias. And it’s not because I feel like sulking against the wall at my own pity party. It’s because I’ve hurt her so many times in the past, it’s become a habit. It’s because we’re in this endless pattern of destruction. We’re a trainwreck. A plane crash. A hurricane of nothing-will-ever-come-of-this. Ever.”

Weston Conrad also known as Mr. Corporate is the best headhunter in the business. He gets the job done with quickness and efficiency that is until Victoria Arias enters into the competition vying for the same contract as Weston. Usually, Weston wouldn’t have any problem with competition but Victoria is not just an ordinary competitor, she is his ex-girlfriend.

#Mr.Corporate (1)

Victoria Arias’s business is about to go bankrupt and she needs to secure this contract deal even if it means competing against her ex. Victoria is not your wallflower kind of hero. She is tough as nails. She prides herself on her confidence and determination. In order to save her company, she knows that she will have to outsmart Weston. But what Victoria never expected was to find herself stranded on a deserted island with Mr. Corporate.

 photo 94d4bec24e243e993036f2420dccfb_zpsev2ekfbz.gif “Sex with Tori isn’t boring because, while she does like to be worshipped , she also likes to hear my dirty mouth as I do it. It turns her on so bad, she gets animalistic and wild. Just like she is in real life. Everything about Tori and me is real. Except all the things that aren’t.”

Stranded on an island, Weston and Victoria are forced to somewhat work together in order to survive and figure out how to get off the island. As sexual tension brews between them, revelations of their tumultuous and heated relationship are revealed. Readers will soon discover that the passion and love that they had for each other never went away. After all these years, they both wanted the same thing. Each other. As secrets and truths are revealed, will Victoria Arias be able to admit that Weston Conrad owns her heart, body, and soul? Can this fiery Latina submit to Mr. Corporate and be seen as his equal?


 photo 94d4bec24e243e993036f2420dccfb_zpsev2ekfbz.gif “I’ve always been yours. You should know that. I have never belonged, will never belong, to anyone but you. Even when we’re apart, I am yours and only yours. Forever.”

In the backdrops of the Victoria and Weston’s reunion, JA Huss of course had to throw a little surprise into the storyline. If you are familiar with JA’s books, then you are all aware that she doesn’t give you the cookie cutter romance. This author is practically synonymous with adding a little shock and surprise to keep readers captivated and intrigued. And boy oh boy was I intrigued especially when Julie laid out the groundwork for Mr. Mysterious and Mr. Match’s stories. While readers got a glimpse of the last two misters, Julie made this book extra special with the appearance of FIVE!! **cue in the happy squeal**


Mr. Corporate was indeed my favorite of the Mister series so far. I loved how everything came together in this book. There was the element of love, second chances, steam, forgiveness and suspense thrown into the mix to give readers an engaging and captivating story. What I especially love about this book was the way Julie went about in revealing the secrets of each mister. She masterfully sprinkled the secrets and truths in such a manner that heightened the story in allowing readers to be shocked and intrigued as to who is behind in the reemergence of the certain people in each Mister’s life. All there is left to say, go read this fun, sexy, and wildly entertaining read from J.A. “motherfucking” Huss. If there is one thing you can always count on is that she never fails to deliver a bold romance that has heart, passion, banter and steam.

The Mister Series Book 3 is a twisted take on a second chance office romance. It's completely unexpected. After book 2, I was expecting something so much darker. Believe it or not, the normalcy and lack of darkness was a bit of a letdown for me.

Here's the breakdown: Victoria and Weston dated during the whole rape case drama. They love each other fiercely, but were never on the same page relationship wise. Their views on relationships and marriage could NOT be more different. Long story short....after being forced into a pretty drastic situation they must confront their feelings for one another and deal with the varying expectations of their new relationship. A few secrets are uncovered, but even more questions are raised over the course of this installment. I have no idea what's going to happen!

What I liked: I really enjoyed learning more about Five and Mr. Mysterious. I have so many theories about the nature of their relationship and I have to know how their stories unfold!

I liked Victoria a lot. She's fiery and feisty, but it was a little OTT after her repetitive outbursts. What I loved most about her was her belief in Weston. Although their relationship was not the best, she always believed in him. That was nice to experience.

I liked Weston. He's sweet, sexy, and a pretty great guy. I totally didn't expect that!

Overall, this started out slow for me. That was mostly due to my dark expectations! It eventually picked up, but I'm still left with more questions. Who is behind all the drama and what are their motives? So far, things are working out in favor of the Misters. What on earth will happen next?

Audiobook review: This audiobook is narrated by Abby Craden and Ryan West.. They are perfection! I recommend the audible version.

Story continues with Mr Corporate and while more secrets surrounding that night were revealed, it still ended with me having more questions.

I didn't love this book, but i didn't hate it either. It mainly involved a very traditional man, who wanted a traditional life (i.e. stay at home wife who would cook, clean and take care of his kids) and a cynical, non-traditional woman who despised marriage and wanted a career. There were a lot of fights (both physical and verbal) between this couple and i never really got the love they apparently had for each other. The fights were worrying! They said and did stuff to each other, I'm just wondering if they'd need some counselling down the road :I Not a fan of the heroine at all, she's now one of my most despised heroines in my list. She was nasty, loud, rude and obnoxious. There was nothing sweet about her except during sex. Not sure if that was intended by the author but whatever she had in mind clearly didn't work for me.

Overall, read this if you're intrigued by the mystery surrounding the 5 Misters, otherwise it was a meh-just-an-ok read for me. The next one up is Mr Mysterious and i'll probably wait around instead of pre-ordering. I've learnt my lesson twice now with this series.

Actual Rating: 2.5 stars

I had a weird feeling while reading this book. It didn't feel right. It is like it tries to be feminist, but in truth, it is actually the opposite. To me it seems like it tries to conceal sexism through cliché feminist ideas. The dynamic in the relationship shown here feels unhealthy or unethical to me. I don't think it is intentionally trying to be that way, but it is how it felt to me. Then, the characters' discourse along the entire book is contradictory and it ends up being incoherent.
Regarding the plot, I think there were big missed opotunities, specially during the island part.

I´ll keep reading this series, but I woundn't recommend reading this book.

Narration: 🎙🎙🎙
Narration Type: Dual Narration

The Heroes: Weston Conrad (a.k.a. Mr. Corporate) - He is an elite corporate recruiter who finds job candidates for executive positions. He never graduated college, but him and his wealthy friends (dubbed the Mister’s) went to Brown College ten years ago and were accused of gang rape. They never went to trial but were certainly portrayed as bad boys in the media and went through hell in the process for the two years it took till the charges were dropped because the girl died. They say they were set up and the guys had a pact never to speak about it and don’t even really know where each other were on that night it happened.

The heroine: Victoria Arias (a.k.a. Tori) - she is a headhunter and is in direct competition with Weston Conrad. They are rivals and old flames who went to Brown College together and happened to have been together on the night everything happened. She says she hates him, but she is attracted to him and always has been.

The Story: Weston and Tori have always fought each other but now, ten years after college, they are business competitors. Though Arias Corporation is struggling, and Tori is sad to see her father’s company disappearing before their eyes. Her father who has a brain tumor, wants her to team up with Weston, but Tori wants nothing to do with her former lover.

Victoria gets a call for a headhunting opportunity for a job that pays 7 figures. She hopes it will be the savior for her company. The person wants the job to be on contingency, where she is competing with other companies to fill the job. The company wants a guy named Wallace Arlington whom she went to school with and who had a crush on her. The person also wants her to do another job for them which sounds dubious, but she agrees and finds herself competing with West again.

The Mister’s are worried that someone from their past is purposely starting things after what happened with Mr. Perfect and Mr. Romantic. So, when Victoria reappears in Weston’s life again, he thinks that he doesn’t believe in coincidence that much and someone might be targeting him this time. I didn’t like this story or the characters in this book as much as in the first two books.

Weston was cocky like Mr. Romantic, whom I also didn’t like at the start, but Mr. Romantic got better pretty quickly. These characters just turned me off from the start and it didn’t really change. It might have been the narration, but I think it was the way they were written as well. Their arguing annoyed me more than anything. Though I kept listening because I wanted to find out more about who is setting them all up and why. Once that storyline really started, the book got much better, though still I wasn’t too hot on the romance between these two.

This book is told in dual points of view via dual narration and was narrated by Ryan West and Abbey Craden. I love the fact that J.A. Huss is using different narrators for each of these books. Many authors use the same two narrators for a series even though each book centers on a different couple. Ryan West has a deep, clear voice which isn’t bad, but sounds a bit older than I picture West as. Abbey Craden has a kind of deep sultry voice, but I don’t really like it all that much.

With every story I keep getting more and more pulled in. What will happen next and when will all the secrets come out. I have a feeling Julie will be waiting until the very end to tell us.

The thing I do enjoy is how this series has a mysterious and suspenseful edge, but each couple also has their own romantic story.

I loved the EOBS for this book, it's like being gifted a behind the scenes pass to the making of the story. I'm a huge *GIANT* Rook and Ronin fan, so as much as I enjoyed this book....I'm on pins and needles waiting to read Mr. Match's book, and the fact that Julie says this is Oliver and Five's book....that noise you're hearing...my happy squeals. The fact that Cindy, Cinderella, is the love interest in Mr. Mysterious' book...yep pretty jacked about that little fact too!

This was a good book, but not quite as good as the first two. The story was interesting, and the action was pretty good, especially the last scene in the bar.
But what pulled my enjoyment out of the story too many times were the main characters. Although he kept saying he wasn't sexist he had very little respect for her work. Instead of understanding her feelings about being controlled after she told him her past (which BTW, how did they live together for years and never discuss it with each other?) Anyway, after she tells him their next sex scene has him controlling her. It just felt uncaring.
As for her? Good God I was tired of all the slapping! I couldn't keep up with all the mood and opinion changes. And what's with all the dresses?
I'm not really sure if this moved the overall Mr. story along much. There are a few clues that may be useful, and we learned more about Five. Just have to wait and see, cause you know I'm going to the next book right away. I'm hooked. Gotta find out who the puppet master is. 🤔

This is the third book in the Mr. series and it follows Mr. Corporate Weston Conrad a handsome, rich head hunter for the business world and his ex girlfriend the hot-headed business woman Victoria Arias. They are thrown together when they both end up head hunting the same client, only problem is they get stuck on a remote deserted island together and that's where it all starts again, still in love and lust with each other they continue their relationship debate (With lots of hot sex) while they wait to be rescued. Things turn dangerous when Mr. Mysterious and Five arrive and both Weston and Victoria are embroiled in a shoot out and try to gain some control over demons from the past. I love this series although around 70% into it you might tend to get a little lost and confused but stick with it as it all comes together in the end. Loved the characters and the hot sex, so bring on book four Mr. Mysterious. Brilliant narration by Ryan West and the talented Abby Craden and her sexy male voice.

One of the things that keep me coming back for more with JA Huss is that each new book is like having a reunion. She has this talent of making these great standalone books that anyone can read and enjoy on their own, yet if you’ve read all of her books, she slips in old characters from past books that bring back fond memories. It’s like saying hello to an old friend. I love her books on their own, but I’m fond of all her books as a whole.

The one thing I’ve always been a fan of, is series because I fall in love with characters and don’t want to say goodbye. I want to call them up and ask them how they are doing and what’s new in their life. This is something JA Huss provides. She knows how to deliver a book for those readers that just want a standalone but at the same time for those that like to see past come to present. I’ve also noticed that when I finish one of her books, I’m left thinking about it long after I finish reading it. She likes to keep her readers guessing and providing puzzles to solve. I realize I am huge fan of this.

While Mr. Corporate can be read as a standalone, we got to say hi to past characters and was left with some teaser for the next book. I’m so excited for the next two books. I can’t wait to see where this is all going and seeing more of my favorites.

Picture this: You're stranded on a island with your ex, the one that always runs away, the one that holds your heart, the one that you hate to love - love to hate. 'Naked and Afraid.' You'll totally get this when you read this book. Haha! Prepare for 4 hours of non-stop reading, you won't want to put this book down.

Mr. Corporate is one of five men who've been wrongfully accused. The past is edging it's way into each one's life. All interconnected standalones. JA Huss explains it in every book. Anyway, it's Weston Conrad's turn to fight with the demons of the past. The past and present collide. Shocking secrets unfold as we try to figure out another piece of the puzzle. I laughed out loud, the banter between the two mains was hilarious. Stubborn love at it's worst, or in this case, maybe best. Just one of the many reasons I loved this book. The characters aren't perfect, but they fit perfectly together. I crave mystery in my books, and this plot, the plot for this entire series has got me in a noose. They can't be written fat enough. A new layer of flavor for every character. And I fall in love with every new secret.

I feel like JA Huss reaches in my book soul and picks the perfect balance of romance, mystery, action, and suspense. I can't wait to see what's next.

I loved book 1 & 2, but for me book 3 was good but it didn’t really get interesting for me until the last 6 chapters.

It’s not like I didn’t like it it’s a good book just didn’t like it as much as the other books, still worth the read hells ya it is. It brings all the Misters together and you get more of the story for sure.

“Why are we so hot and cold> Why are we so on and off? So all or nothing? Friends or enemies?” – Victoria

These two keep dancing around each other they are together or they aren’t and when they have to spend time together, trying to win over a job that could save her from the downfall of her company.
So they are both fighting for the positions. Only they end up fight for more than just a job, their lives, and love if it can be salvaged.

More of there all of their back stories come out, and you will be shocked at what you learn.
So again I said I like the book by no means is it bad, it just wasn’t as good in my eyes as book 1 & 2. I am very much looking forward to book 4 :)

** 3.75-4 STARS **

We’re in this endless pattern of destruction. We’re a trainwreck. A plane crash. A hurricane of nothing-will-ever-come-of-this. Ever.


Well JA Huss sure knows how to surprise. After reading Mr. Romantic, I was 100% positive this one would have a subplot as edgy and unpredictably controversial, but this one seemed so...normal, you know? Well...as "normal" as a JA Huss plot can be, of course.

OVERALL: I am getting more and more excited with every new book and curious about who is lying or hiding huge secrets. No one is off the hook yet.

Honestly... I feel so bored with this series... Its the same thing, over and over and over again...
June 1, 2023
3 days, 3 books by Huss. I can't put my finger on why I'm so addicted to the Mister series. It is probably a combination of things, such as tough heroines and sexy alpha heroes, a pacey plot with lots of unexpected twists and an air of danger, and steamy scenes that are hot enough to melt your e-reader.

The push and pull between Weston and Victoria could have become irritating. Instead, the short timeline, fast pace and precariousness of the situation they were facing worked together to make a passionate, high-stakes, emotion-packed read.

I really can't recommend this series enough. Each book has been just that little bit darker, that little bit more twisted than the previous one. Goodness knows where Ms Huss will take me with the next two books.

You know that Pringles advert, "once you pop, you just can't stop," well that was absolutely the case with JA Huss's "Mister" series. Ok, that may be a tiny lie. You may get away with reading the first book and leaving a gap before starting the next but once you've got "Mr Perfect" and "Mr Romantic" safely under your belts, you can kiss goodbye to your life for the next few days, a week tops because you will want to devour this absolute gem of a series. You (like every single other person who read this series before you), will want to know the answer to the question that was on everyone's lips, "what the fuck happened that night?" Oh that darn question drove me crazy and kept me up night after night until all was revealed and then of course came the gasps, the shock, the palpitations, the sweaty palms. Uh huh, prepare yourselves peeps because this is one hell of a bumpy, crazy, wild ride and I loved every single freakin' bit of it.
I feel like i just walked into a trap. I feel like a rabbit looking up into the eyes of a wolf.

As I've said on many an occasion, this author's story telling abilities are second to none and although she has written numerous books (like maybe a gazillion), I never feel like they are "samey" or that there are similarities in the story lines. But this story line, what can I say other than this was pure genius on Julie A Huss's part. The way this series was written ensured that although (in theory) each book could be read as a standalone, in practice that was never (and I mean NEVER) going to happen. The sub plot, that wasn't a sub plot but was actually the pièce de résistance had me hook, line and sinker. God I could talk about it but I can't, I just can't because this is one you will want to read without any knowledge of what's to come. That element of surprise will seriously knock you on your ass.
I can't believe I'm so turned on. Am I supposed to be turned on? Am i supposed to like this?

So on to the characters, boy did these guys test me. Having read "Mister Perfect" and "Mr Romantic," I honestly thought I'd got these books and these men and their leading ladies sussed. I thought I'd worked out the formula for what was to come but nope. Book three turned out to be such a huge game changer as did books four and five. None of the characters were alike. Some I absolutely loved. Some I just wanted to hug and some, well some were really going to have to work their asses off to win my affections.
An honest enemy is always better than a friend who lies.

What else to say without spoiling anything, nothing I guess other than the whole series is a must read. This whole story from start to finish was dramatic, full of twists and turns, action packed, sexy and swoony and full of mystery and suspense. I could honestly see this on the big screen some day. The icing on the cake for me was the link to some of Julie's other series. When an author does this and does it well, it will blow your mind as this series did. Go grab it. What are you waiting for!!!!
The rules of the game state that you only get one chance for every moment. Make the wrong choice and it stays wrong forever.

So ratings: The whole series gets a ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ for the genius way it was written.
Mr Perfect: ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Mr Romantic: ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Mr corporate: ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Mr Mysterious: ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Mr Match: ❤️❤️❤️❤️.5

The Misters just keep getting better and better. Each time I think she is not able to outdo herself, she does. J.A. Huss is an author that, in my opinion, never disappoints. Her mind, though even I have to admit, can be a bit scary, continues to give us stories and characters we love (and love to hate). To come up with the plot twists, fresh story lines and timelines she gives us is an amazing feat.

In Mr. Corporate, we meet Weston Conrad, also known as Mr. Corporate. He is ruthless, determined and very cocky. He is the best at what he does and he knows it. Nothing and no one stands in his way. His only weakness? The woman he cannot get out of his heart.

Victoria Arias is an independent woman that stands on her own two feet. She needs no one, especially one cocky, arrogant, sexist man to come to her rescue. It does not matter who he is or what he was to her. They were always water and vinegar.

There is so much I want to say, but so little that can be said, because I do not want to spoil the story. Again a mister is found in a situation out of his control and orchestrated by others. Who can he trust? So many secrets surround all the misters. Even from each other. How do they overcome that horrible night that forever changed their lives? They move forward and are pushed back over and over.

Just when they think they may have a clue, will it all come crashing in? You will be at the edge of your seat for the entire ride!

Then you have Weston, he just stole my heart. He is not a nice guy, can be very mean when he wants too, but when he opens up and share his heart? Well, you will be a goner. When West and Tory come to a realization about each other and he explains something to her, it will steal your heart.

And Tory. She wants to be strong, she wants to succeed, but when we get to see her vulnerabilities, we get to see a whole new side of her. Why she made the choices she did.

This story is fast-paced and intriguing from the prologue to the epilogue. It will grab you and not let go until you read the last word. You will walk away with more questions, but that is J.A. Huss at her best. Her stories and series will pull you in from start to finish.

I loved this book. Loved Mr. Corporate. These are all hard men who learned early that life was not easy or fair, but they also have a side to them you can’t help to love.

I give Mr. Corporate by JA Huss 5+ stars!

Happy reading!

I have been waiting for him.. Mr. Corporate. He's MINE. Boy did I pick the right one. He is passionate, handy, hung, manly and MINE. Oops I am not fighting for him on FB right now. I am telling all of you why you should read this one, this book of the MISTERS, by J. A. HUSS. She brings it. Romantic suspense at it's best right here. Weston Conrad is the 3rd book in the 5 book series. These books are standalone and can be read in any order.

This story is a love story of old love re-united. Love between Weston Conrad and Miss Victoria Arias they are both corporate headhunters and old flames. Ironically they were together that fateful night when the Misters earned their names and altered their lives forever. I was shocked by their backstory. I loved the character development, the banter and fire. Victoria is feisty and sexy. Weston Conrad is swoon worthy. Sexy and a real man, knows how to work with his hands and his brain. Their chemistry made the story. I also enjoyed all the twists and turns, the plot was crazy. I white knuckled my wine glass. The story wasn't just about them, no that wouldn't be a Huss book, it's about what happens to them, with them and then the WHOLE big picture.. plus we get some nuggets which rock!!

Again Huss weaves her story over the dynamics of love, between men and women. Submission and domination who wins. Is love a loss or a win. Read this book to understand my question then ask yourself to love is to give or is it to get?

I won't tell you the book, just 1*Click it and be done. This is a #CLASSIC.

Fucking Tori Arias. Why, of all people to get stuck on an island with, does it have to be her? The only girl I want but I can't have?
And this new revelation about her past. It intrigues me and sends my Mr. Corporate cynicism into overdrive at the same time. Because I see what's coming. She's gotten a little glimpse of my lies as well. And if I want more of her, she'll want more of me.
Something I cannot-will not-give up. So we are doomed.

Victoria Arias is a whirlwind of crazy. She's a know-it-all hot shot who knows she's all that and a bag of chips. She's also nuts, stubborn, and full of baggage. I found it a little hard to like her, but for some reason, her craziness worked for her character. Although it annoyed me how much she fought West in everything. She just couldn't concede to him or his love. I can see why he hated to love her and loved to hate her. Because Tori Arias holds a past that is a little too turbulent, and it causes trouble for her and for the love she constantly rejects.
Weston Conrad, on the other hand, likes crazy-you can even say he's in love with crazy. He loves it when it slaps him in the face, he likes when it gives him a run for his money, and he definitely loves it when it offers itself up to him on a silver platter. Weston loves crazy, because through his cool, hot as sin, all-business demeanor, Mr. Corporate holds his own kind of crazy. His own secrets that hold him back and keep him hidden and always vying for control.
Add in a deserted island, an approaching hurricane, and a gangster who may or may not be trying to kill them and you have a recipe for some seriously hot sex and some intense secrets that may or may not destroy them. On top of that the Misters take a turn for the hostile, making this book as intriguing as ever. Thank you Ms. Huss once again, for giving us an unforgettable Mister.

This Mister series keeps getting better and better and Mr Corporate is soooooooo excellent!

Weston 'West' Conrad is Mr Corporate and finds himself face to face with the ex love of his life, Victoria 'Tori' Arias, after several years of being apart. Their history goes back to when they attended Brown University. They tried to make their relationship work but due to secrets they kept from each other and a humongous amount of baggage, they fell apart. But a phone call from an anonymous caller brings them back together and the twist and turns and craziness that is pure JA Huss begins.

Throughout Mr Corporate we get some more history of the Misters which I loved and all the Misters pop up to varying degrees throughout. Plus we get more of Five, I love Five! I hope he gets his own spinoff! By the end of this book some secrets are revealed but some are not, then more questions arise and are left unanswered. But instead of leaving me frustrated, I was left fascinated! I was left guessing...wanting and needy, aching...in a deliciously masochistic way. Oh yeah, JAH! You know how I like it, give it to me just like that!

So is this more of classic JA Huss? You betcha by golly wow! Yes indeed! I wasn't disappointed, no siree, not one iota. I was over the top in heaven! Plus the EOBS.....I am so addicted to the EOBS!! Insight galore, it's a must read so don't skip over the EOBS!! (Hint: it's at the End of the Book!)

Thanks to JA Huss for nothing short of another brilliant book. I love love loved it. I'm giving Mr Corporate 5 delicious stars!

This one was a little hard to get into but it wasn't the writing, it was the male narrator. He's good but he wasn't the voice I initially would have picked for Mr. Corporate (based on what I knew about him from previous books.) But as the story went on, I really started to like his narration. Either way, the story is great, and I love Mr. Corporate! (the character). I'm really enjoying this series. Johnny (book 3 in her bossy brothers series just came out in audiobook, but I want to finish the Mister series first because I HAVE to know about Mr. Mysterious.)

Every single one of these books starts out normal and then the plot takes a huge twist into WTF land. But in a good way.

Mr. Corporate is the latest addition to JA Huss’ set of stand alones “The Misters”. Mr. Perfect was Pop Rocks - sweet and fizzy and a lot of fun in bed (those urban legends are true). Mr. Romantic was that decadent chocolate truffle – dark and rich but you can’t be sure that you’ll actually like it until you actually bite into it. Mr. Corporate is your favorite childhood candy that takes you back to a safe happy time. For me that’s candied cherry sours. A tart, hard shell with a sweet soft center. 

To recap, each of The Misters is the story of a man finding love in the aftermath of a high profile criminal investigation that left five college friends under a cloud of suspicion. Mr. Corporate, Weston Conrad, is seemingly the least affected by that night ten years ago, because he has an alibi. An alibi the other Misters were never aware of.

Weston is a corporate headhunter at the pinnacle of his field, closing multi- million dollars contracts and wheeling and dealing because he loves the thrill of the game. Victoria Arias is his direct competitor. Just as skilled but on the brink of losing it all because of mistakes connected with a real estate deal she made. But this is JA Huss so nothing is as it seems. Victoria was Weston’s alibi that long ago night – and his soulmate. Only she fought their destiny at every turn – sometimes physically - and now they’re six years out from the mother of ugly break ups. And in direct competition for the same $7 million contract – one that will save Victoria from losing it all. A fact that is one of many secrets each of them has kept from the other

Then things take a turn – don’t they always in JA Huss’ universe? Sex on a beach has never been this complicated. Deserted islands straight out of an episode of “Lost”. Helicopters. Hurricanes. Mercenaries. And let’s not forget that sketchy charter pilot, Vlad. The course of true love never runs smooth – a massive understatement in this case.

Weston is the ultimate alpha business man – except when it comes to Victoria. He is an unabashed, dyed in the wool romantic – even swoonier that Spencer Shrike, which is saying a lot. Victoria, the object of his affection, is a fighter with a cartload of baggage, who will physically and verbally lash out to hide her vulnerability. For me, Victoria’s treatment of Weston sometimes made it hard to root for them, she was that cruel to him. But the heart wants what the heart wants, and Weston’s unceasing optimism, commitment and COURTSHIP of her made me fall in love with their love. Theirs is one of the most "capital R” romantic couplings created by Ms. Huss to date. They were thisclose to edging out Spencer and his Bombshell. If you’re craving romance, Mr. Corporate with satisfy your hunger. I LOVE THEIR JOURNEY.

On other fronts, the Misters have pretty much lost the battle on keeping a lid on their past and things are really starting to bubble over. The underlying mystery has become so hot I’m losing sleep trying to figure out all the moving parts. I’ll be counting the day until we get to spend more time with Paxton Vance. Mr. Mysterious, and getting some answers to my questions. In the meantime, I’m going to lose myself in love and romance Weston Conrad style. How can a girl can say no to soulmates? Sighhhh

5 eternal stars

I'm super sorry to the Mr Corporate lovers out there, but I was so disappointed with this book. I loved the first two in this series and felt obligated to finish this book so that I could get another piece of the mystery and wouldn't have any blank spaces when I read the next book but seriously, if this was a standalone i wouldn't have made it past the third chapter.

Weston conrad is our Mr corporate and he's decent as far as a leading man goes, though his back story is convoluted and ridiculous. spoiler alert!! he found treasure at the bottom of the sea when he was 7 years old and was tortured by gangster's because he wouldn't tell them where it was? really??? okay... but corporate seemed a fairly decent guy but honestly, I spent most of the story feeling sorry for him because he had to put up with Victoria.
where do I even start with this leading lady? okay, well she's whiny, seriously annoying, vindictive, rude, selfish and spends the majority of the book behaving like a spoilt brat. she throws a tantrum a 2 year old would envy whenever corporate makes a decision, claiming she's an independent business woman yet having a hissy fit at any mention of her being left on her own. ugh I really couldn't stand her.

the plot line was a tad ridiculous too - they've been trapped on some island somehow, I really don't get what happened and if I liked the book at all then I'd go back and figure it out but I'm really not that masochistic.
another thing, what ever happened to character description? I sort of realised with this book that I don't know what any of these characters really look like - there are some vague mentions of hair colour in the characters first scenes but I don't actually have a mental image of them...

I'm going to carry on with the series because I can't wait to find out what mysterious's deal is but really, I couldn't help feeling kind of let down with Mr corporate 😕 sorry Huss lovers, I feel what I feel.

Oh. My. Word. I'm blown out of my wits. Again. Seriously, this is absolutely what I dig and crave so much in this author's writing. It's phenomenal. Just, oh my god. This entire series, the whole story just gets deeper and even more intense than the last one. My head is ready to explode, my heart was about to leap out of my chest from everything going on! This is way more addicting than I thought. It's like this huge mystery puzzle that will drive you insane—book after book, revelation after revelation—trying to put everything together, to make sense of the things that continue to unravel.

Sweet and gentle Weston Conrad... Where do I even start with you? All I know is that I'm swooning and drooling over every single thing you say and do. The way West loves Tori so vehemently makes me want to marry him, regardless if he still got a couple of secrets hidden up his sleeve. Despite all that, I still utterly fell head over heels for the man. I loved how much he cared for and never really got over the love of his life. The one woman he knew would be his future and that if it doesn't work out with her, he can never love or even be with anybody else. The way he took every crazy stunt she dished out on him in stride makes me yearn for that tenderness in him. He was Tori's polar opposite, but he always loved that untamed and raw passion in her. He adored her so deeply despite all her fears and insecurities. West always knew what to do with her and he was just willing to give everything up, if it means he'll get his Tori for eternity. And that in itself is already swoon-worthy. I mean, how lucky can this woman be???

And Victoria Arias, gosh, I can't imagine the horrendous and heartbreaking childhood this woman went through. There's no way, just no chance for you to get out of that unscathed and not be scarred on the inside even as years pass by. No wonder she grew up to be that way. She and West saved each other's lives that night years ago. And they were so good in the beginning when they first met. Until West starts talking about the future he wanted for both of them and Tori's fears rear their ugly heads. She became so wild and unhinged. They started to keep clashing and exploding that even I got to the point of being so frustrated with them fighting all the time. But I still loved this girl. She tried so hard to be strong and independent and be in control of her entire life, but she clearly needs West too. She was just too stubborn and scared.

Everything that happened in the Exuma Cays were all so mind boggling. Every single thing that Mr. Corporate revealed from his past left my jaw stuck on the floor. It messed with my head so bad, but I live for these kinds of plots in a book. I felt like my brain was getting stretched and pulled in so many directions all at the same time, though it felt so good. It will honestly make you think, dig more and even try to put pieces of the puzzle yourself. And I'm still going stir crazy, waiting for Mysterious' and Match's story. I know Match will be the one to tie it all up and I can't wait to see how it all comes together. And Five... God, I just love his many faces as we get more and more of him.

This is, without a doubt, an outstanding sequel to the Mister series and a little less extreme compared to all of Romantic's kink. It really is on the more normal side, but still with a great twist and J.A. Huss' flare. Another epically mind-blowing read. It will definitely keep all your body and brain juices flowing everywhere!!
