“We play by my rules now.”
—Kit, the new boss

Who does Kit Walker think he is? The trust-fund heir waltzes in and wants to boss me around, but if I catch him misbehaving, his father will yank his inheritance. Stalemate, right? Not when our chemistry is irresistible! Ironically, we run the top dating app. Could this be my “perfect match”…or the perfect scandal?

➳No matter what or where, I will always be drawn to anything by Katy Evans and this beauty is calling my name...

➳As a true fan of Katy's work, I will never back down to reading any of her novels! Especially when it's a steamy, office romance that will have you wanting more. This kind of romance is the type of romance that Katy is known for and deserves every form of appreciation because of it. Kit Walker and Alexandra will stand tall with power and determination as individuals. When they first

Katy Evans is always an author I look forward to read. She constantly achieves to create remarkable couples with intense chemistry. Boss isn’t an exception with its irresistible hero and feisty heroine that just are the perfect match. It’s a swoon worthy read for sure!

The premise for BOSS is the kind of book that promises a trope I enjoy. An office, heated dislike, slight forbidden element and chemistry. Alex was the boss under the owner of a dating app company but the owner decided to pass the reins on to his errant son, Kit.

Kit was arrogant, normally polished but inexperienced in business. I liked the idea of Alex mentoring him, even if he didn’t. Alex was a strong character initially but she had elements of flakiness. Alex was naturally attracted to Kit an

Despite the fact that Katy Evans wrote MY Remy...I can't say that any book of hers after that was a stunner...

Either my expectations are way too high or I just can't find that groove in Ms Evans' books...I have to say this story was simply 'meh' for me...with unfortunately totally forgetable characters...*shrugs*

Lacey (Booklovers For Life)
I was so happy when Katy Evans' announced she would be releasing a book for Harlequin Desire. I knew this book would be quick and steamy, and thankfully Katy didn't disappoint. She writes alpha heroes so well, and Kit Walker is full of alpha goodness. I couldn't get enough of his and Alexandra's story! If you like office romances with a strong heroine, I highly recommend you read Boss!

Full review to come!

Thanks to the publisher for generously providing me an ARC to review.

A nice, quick insta-love story with a strong female and male boss leads. Lots of sparks and very steamy sexy times. Highly recommend for those looking for a fun read that may help you out of a book funk.

Katy Evans introduces us to Kit Walker in Boss!! It is her first Harlequin Desire release. You will be romanced and swoon as you read this feel good, romantic story.

I'm a big fan of Katy Evans. Remy is one of my top 10 favorite heroes. As I alluded to earlier, I was afraid that the constraints of a category romance might affect her voice. Happily, this wasn't the case at all. The witty exchanges and strong sexual chemistry between the hero and heroine that Ms Evans does so well were here in abundance. The story started out very strong, but the characters were not always consistent and I think the shorter story length impacted her pacing. The initi

Katy Evan's Boss was a delightful read. It was sexy and snarky and I loved the Employee-Boss dynamic. Kit and Alex were delicious and full of swoons!

When Kit Walker is suddenly Alexandra Croft new boss she could not have expected the fiery chemistry between them. Meant to mentor him before he takes the reins, their explosive chemistry and sizzle could be felt off the pages. This story had heat and sizzle and I look forward to more stories from this author in the future. 4 stars! ~Ratula

I haven’t read a Harlequin Romance in years. When I started reading romance, I would pick up either a Desire or Blaze from the bookstore.

If you have read a Katy Evans book, but of her leading men tend to be a little brooding, or like playing head games and her leading women tend to be more timid. Here you get Kit the soon to be CEO of his father's dating app company and Alexandra, the tough as nails HBIC of her design team.

An office romance mixed with a little enemies to lovers. It was a quick read that wasn’t big on emotions. I was able to sit down and devour in one sitting. It was enjoyable but not memorable.

I do look forward to the next book though.

I received an arc and this is my honest review.

Boss is a fast-paced, entertaining read written as a Harlequin Desire story. These reads are emotional, sexy stories filled with passion and desire, sexy times and ultimately end with Hero and Heroine riding off into the sunset. Okay, they don't really ride off into the sunset, but they do find their happily ever after. Such is the case Kit and Alexandra. Two people who started off hating each other in that classic enemies to lovers, office romance kind of way, but quickly succumbed to the blazi ...more

Boss is an amazing steamy quick read. I couldn't put this one down. I love the heat that left me fanning myself. The insta-lust between Kit and Alexandra is felt from the very beginning. This is one steamy office romance. You feel the hate and the heat as Kit and Alexandra go head to head in the office. The sparks fly once they decide to become friends. I love the changes in Kit as the story line goes on. Alexandra is feisty and fiery. She is dedicated to her job. Kit comes off as a playboy who ...more

I had never heard the term ' A Harlequin Romance ', and honestly I had to look up the definition to even find out what it means. To be quite blunt, Boss is the pure definition of a Harlequin Romance . A simple story with a happy ending. As always, Evans has the ability to write anything she puts her mind to, with the perfect writing style, that always seems to capture my attention. Boss is not a complex story, it is a quick bite into the romance world, with characters that are likable. This inst ...more

I'm a Katy Evans fan and was thrilled to find this new Harlequin Desire story.

The mouth-watering sexy Boss who shows up to shake up her orderly life was not what she'd been expecting. She thinks he's just a playboy who thinks he can charm his way into everyone's good graces, but she has news for him, she's not that girl.

Definitely not your typical boss and employee romance. This one is so much more. Exciting, enjoyable, romantic, real. When Alex first meets Kit she really doesn't like him, and when she is told she has to be his mentor she isn't too excited. After all he is a rich playboy who hasn't worked a day in his life. Now he is the acting CEO of his father's multibillion dollar company. There is an attraction but she definitely does not want to acknowledge it. But he does surprise her. Kit steps into this

When working for a company named Cupid’s Arrow you never think that maybe it might strike you.
Alexandra Croft leads the design team and has the utmost professionalism when it comes to her job. Her boss has unending respect and confidence in her but when he says he’s announcing his retirement everything she knows about her job is about to change.
