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

I tried. I really, really tried. I read this a couple of weeks ago because I read the blurb and saw all the feedback saying, "OMG, this book is hilarious!" That's like waving a red flag in front of a raging bull, the bull being me of course. So I bought this book and started reading. After a few chapters, I stopped because I didn't like a single thing.

But then I looked at all these glowing 5-star reviews again and thought to myself, "Surely, all these

➦4 stars for OTT humor lol Do you like romantic comedies? Office and second chance romances? Douchebag bosses who secretly lust over their female PA? ...a little pranking at a workplace, perhaps?

➦Ok! Then this one is for you. The heroine is a divorced mom of two who starts a new job as a PA for Mr. Douche. It's her first job in years and she is determined to succeed. Ez, right?

If you've been looking for a HOT and HILARIOUS new book to fall in love with, then you have to read this book!!! It's about a sassy single mom who started a new job only to find that while her boss was incredibly gorgeous, he was also a complete asshat. Or so it seemed. They got off on waaay the wrong foot and their hate-to-love romance -- not to mention the outrageous pranks they pulled on each other -- almost made me cry with laughter. And when the sexual tensio
The award for the best "ride or die" bitch goes to our heroine's sister.
In the preface, our heroine, Lauren, calls her sister to tell her that Lauren's husband has been having an affair. When she pulls into her driveway, this is the scene that awaits her:

..she is there throwing Jake's clothes out of our bedroom window....I don't see Kaleigh come from the side of the house with a gasoline container in her hand. I just see her pouring it all over his clothes. She walks over to me, handing me th
This was my first read by Natasha Madison and I can tell you that it won’t be my last! This story was absolutely hilarious!!! The antics between Austin and Lauren were impossible not to laugh at!! OMG!! These two were very original with their pranks against one another! I was highly entertained by them! When they finally raised their surrender flags, and gave in to their attraction, things began to heat up very quickly!

I highly recommend this book when you need a great laugh and also some heat a

I liked the beginning and the last 25-30%.

Absolutely loved how the heroine handled her cheating husband!
The idea with burn his clothes was great! :-)

The story itself was ok, partly funny, partly very funny; some things the MCs done were a bit too much/odd for mine liking, but since it was fiction and not a real working environment it was ok I guess.

The scene with OW (who came in trench coat to H’s office) didn’t make any sense to me, but only cheapened H’s character.

This was my first read from Natasha Madison and I'm pretty much slapping myself for not reading her words sooner. I loved watching Lauren and Austin battle it out in the office and it was actually a lot more amusing than I was thinking it would be. At the start I had a little bit of a hard time getting into the story but then once Lauren raged war on Austin with pranks I was captivated.

I loved their fun and witty romance and it's one I will be re-reading for sure.

If you love rom-coms and office romances, look no further, THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU!!!

Full of lust and great humor , this book was just perfect for me. Lauren and Austin tortured each other throughout the work day, in both good and very bad ways, and ucky for us we go along for the delicious ride. Tempting the boss has never felt soooo good.

I bust a gut laughing at this romantic comedy. The hijinks and shenanigans are off the charts funny! This book is the perfect mix of funny and sexy! I thoroughly enjoyed every single minute of it!

This is only my 2nd read from Natasha Madison. I really enjoy her mix of high-handed alpha-hole male leads and spunky, take no crap heroines. I'm looking forward to reading many more books from this author!

I really,really enjoyed it.

The first half of the book was hilarious. Very well written, I loved the characters, and the practical jokes they came up with.

After that, in the second half, their relationship progresses. We step away from crazy antics, sexual tension and move into a more of a limbo/uncertain period of testing the waters, not in a dramatic way or anything like that though.

This was a solid office romance and I loved how the writer didn’t go with the usual depiction of the tro

The good: I finished it and the first sex scene was hot.
The bad: I found the couple a bit immature with the pranks, it went downhill towards the end and Noah's disclosure for the next book (I assume?) O.O!!! Not acceptable!

Funny sexy and just brilliant.

This book was just brilliant. I laughed al the way through this book. This isnt the normal CEO and PA fall in luv story they actually can't stand each other at first. The way they met was why they couldnt stand each other and then they end up working together Lauren things life couldn't get any worst. Austin felt the same way but he thought she was sexy as hell and she thought the same as him. But Lauren as been hurt so much by her cheating husbands that Lauren

This book was really hilarious and I laughed so damn much!

She's the drug and I'm the addict. I've never wanted someone so much in my life.

Austin and Lauren were amazing and so funny and a bit immature for their age, but who cares the book was really good and funny and captured my attention since the beginning. I read it in one sit and I enjoyed every second of it.

Besides the main characters I really enjoyed every one else as well. They were one crazy gang of people who had no filter and

5 stars!

An enemies-to-lovers story, this book is smart and sexy with fantastic banter and a heap of snark, and it’s absolutely hilarious! I haven’t laughed this hard while reading in such a long time, I had tears streaming down my face! So much fun! And the love story is sweet and emotional, making this a really well-rounded read that I could not put down. A definite favourite, I loved it!

This is a true enemies to lovers book. Usually this trope is loosely represented, meaning they usually aren’t really enemies and it normally only last for a few chapters even if they are. But this is a fun take on it since they really go after one another. The pranks they play on one another are highly entertaining and pretty elaborate.

I’m really enjoying this author and will continue to read her books!
I would recommend you check out Alex's review:

For me: 3.5 Stars


Lauren is the true hero of this book. She is a strong woman. Period.

It took me a while to Warm up to Austin. He really WAS a weak hero. He DID intend to sleep with OW, on the other side of the door while Lauren was there. She was sitting on his LAP, kills the buzz and DOES leave a bad taste in your mouth. Well he went nowhere near the thought of sex once the OW was there is
3.5 Stars
Loved the beginning of this book! Enemies to lovers is my thing! The pranks these two pulled on each other had me dying laughing!! But sadly after they finally got together the book became just ok for me. I'm sad to say I skimmed all the sex scenes. Loved how great Austin was with her kids. Loved how Lauren handled her douchebag cheating ex! Loved Lauren's sister and Austins best friend!

If you're in the mood for childish pranks between a PA and her boss this book is for you! Get ready

Warning: this review is likely to contain spoilers.

Another one bites the dust.

I think Tempt the Boss had some good intentions, especially in regard to rom-com. But, ultimately, very little of it worked for me. It had potential, but, on the whole, it was executed so poorly as to render it unbelievable—in an utterly preposterous way. The book tried too hard to be funny, which ended up having the opposite effect and, in turn, lost its appeal. Charmed, I was not.

Just a wee bit OTT but I still enjoyed it...

Tempt The Boss was very entertaining and the kind of contemporary romance I find easy to sink into. An unhappy intro to the characters...because what's the point of a romance story if the hero and heroine are blissfully happy without each other? Blistering chemistry that jumped off the pages and made me squirm. Romantic gestures that made me sigh and remember the good-old-days of courtship. Saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, seeing the repercuss
I've just recently discovered Natasha Madison's work and I've been so impressed so far, but her latest release, TEMPT THE BOSS, was one of the FUNNIEST romantic comedies I've read in a very long time! People, we are talking laugh out loud, fall on your ass, tears in your eyes, spit-take worthy romantic comedy here. The banter is EVERYTHING in this story. The sexy and hilarious shenanigans are EVERYTHING in this story. The minute I read the very last page, I wanted to experience the hilarity ALL ...more

Really enjoyed the first half this book. Their antics were funny even if sometimes a bit silly. But I still found myself in stiches especially the itchy powder. It was classic.

The h's sister Kaleigh, I truly love. She's loyal and funny. She's epic. The bomb Noah dropped about him getting a divorce, really wonder about that.

I was a wee bit disappointed with the h because one day she was adamant about not quitting her job for the H and next she made arrangements for her replacement. hmmmm...

Oh Dear God in Heaven, this was hilarious! I only wish it wasn't the middle of the night so I could howl with laughter real loud and not get cursed or exorcised. xD

Funny. Hilarious. Especially the first 50%. Oh my all those pranks are just hilarious. Good thing I read it in private place so I don't have to snort out loud. It is also a sweet story. I really like Austin. He is sweet and loving alpha male. I want more of his POV actually. And it is right ladies. A man who is not afraid on doing household chores is very sexy.

The things that I found lacking is the layer and depth of the story. On some part of the book the story is bit flat. I wish the ending c
