“This woman will argue with the grim reaper when the time comes, I have no doubt.”
The Boss Man is the fourth book in the Manly series by Teddy Hester. I have to be honest here and say that although this book was a little slow to get going, I really did love what came once the pace picked up. So, I felt that it still deserved a 5 star rating, despite the fact that it didn’t immediately grab me. The author has woven a wonderful storyline with interesting and loveable characters, intrigue, s ...more

Not my favorite of the three books I've read in the series, this 💕romance in the oil fields of Texas is good but not great. The idea that this engineering contractor hired a women journalist blogger to help on his worksite is a bit bizarre. It does give them the interaction needed to build the romantic tension, though, and draws her into the mystery of weird hap ...more

I read this story in one sitting and its my first by this author. This can absolutely be read as a standalone since that's what I did, it doesnt feel like it’s an ongoing story, of course I could be wrong but I don't think so.
Jack and Jilly were fun characters as far as how their interaction was written, and the storyline was good I just don't feel like I got enough of a story and it seemed kind o ...more

This book was captivating and I was totally compelled while reading it. This plot was well written and this author had created some brilliant characters. This was a short read, and at times I think it could have been better if it was a full-length novel just so that we had more depth to certain parts in the r ...more
Jilly is the type of female I love to hate beautiful, smart and spoiled. I kind of felt like her purpose in the story wasn’t needed. Like the author couldn’t figure out a way to put her into the story that would make sense for her to be around all the time. With that being said I liked the story because you get to see this controlling guy take a step back and relax. You see this guy who is used to getting things his way stop and thi ...more
