The first time I met Chase Parker, I didn’t exactly make a good impression.

I was hiding in the bathroom hallway of a restaurant, leaving a message for my best friend to save me from my awful date.

He overheard and told me I was a bitch, then proceeded to offer me some dating advice.

So I told him to mind his own damn business—his own tall, gorgeous, full-of-himself damn busi

4.5 Chase Stars

I was originally going to rate this 3 stars, but upon further reflection decided to go for 4+, because, well, CHASE.

He really was such an engaging and dynamic character and his charismatic way of making shit up?


The way he relentlessly and shamelessly went after Reese?





There were some super fun comical moments...


And I really liked the way the way the story ended.


So why not 5 stars, you say?


I just do not love stories with dead exes.

An office romance/friends to lovers story, 'Bossman' was such a fantastic read. After reading “The Baller: A Down and Dirty Football Novel” I was really looking forward to read this one . I enjoyed that one, but I really loved Mrs. Keeland’s newest gem. If you are fallowing my reviews, you already know that I love books that have a little bit of everything and 'Bossman' really had every single one of the elements that makes a book a fantastic read.

Fun And Flirty Office Romance

This is my third book by this author, and it's my favorite so far. Vi Keeland is on the way to becoming a "one-click author" for me. I absolutely adored this story! It gets a solid 4 1/2 stars from me.

From their very first interaction, I was hooked on Reese and Chase. They had incredible chemistry, even if their first meeting was adversarial. Then, what started as bitter conflict morphed into a playful banter. Suddenly, instead of fighting each other, it seemed like

[image error]

It’s been a long time since a CEO suit-type hero has done it for me. They tend to be the same old story lines with slight modifications year after year. That has all changed since I've met Chase Parker.


The story is refreshing, witty, sexy, emotional, and has renewed my love in a hot BOSS hero!


It all starts with Chase Parker crashing our heroine, Reese Annesley’s boring bind date.

”Reese. Is that you?”

What the hell? “Umm…yes.”

The sun had begun to rise, casting a golden hue across the room as Chase slowly moved in and out of me. It was beautiful and tender, and I felt it in a place I never knew another human being could touch—my soul.

Immediately, from the opening lines, Bossman had me hooked!!!!! I could not wipe the silly, infatuated, smile off my face and I had the most intense case of belly flutters. This book screamed, "fun fun fun." And for the most part it was -- fun, sexy, and unbelievably swoony! But it was also something else, something so much more. It was heartfelt and really brought to life some deep feels that left me breathless.

Audiobook review. Alright, ladies and gents. I get why people love this book so much. Chase is sexy as sin and with a fantastic sense of humor. His first meeting Reese is about as epic as it can get. I really liked the guy. Reese is trying to figure her life out and though she takes some time to do so, I liked her approach and how she wanted to learn from past mistakes. These two are ridiculously sexy. The sexual tension and build up was executed flawlessly. Where this fell short for me personal ...more

I loved this. I loved every word in this book. I have to say, I put Bossman on my TBR list because, first: THAT COVER. Yes, not sorry to say that at all.. The man is sex on legs! Second, I enjoyed quite a lot of books by this author. Still, I was extremely cautious about it because my last read by hers was The Baller and it left me with bittersweet feelings. But, luckily, this was not the case. Bossman is, simply, perfect!

Was the writing outstanding and the story original? Sorry, but no.
Was any of it remarkable in any way? THAT'S A BIG FAT NO.

This was a cute re-read. I liked the characters, and I liked the sex scenes. I just wanted more out of the story. There was little that happened, even though the book did have depth to it. I wanted to see the main character connect with other character, to become a big, crazy, and happy family, instead of just mainly focusing on the two character's romance development. Even if said development was awesome and funny. Strangely, I do
Delightfully fun, addictingly sexy. Bossman is a perfect blend of wit, humor and sultriness all wrapped up in a dirty office romance that will touch your heart and make it swoon.

that cover resembles more to a magazine cover instead of an office romance story.

I was looking for a quick and fun romance read when I had started reading this. While it started really good with the guy coming to the rescue of damsel in distress aka our heroine, but it soon turned out that things are not as smooth as I wanted them to be. It could have easily been a good romance for me, had it not been for Chase Parker's reluctant to let past go. He was clinging to it desperately, thus destroyin
