“I need you back. Now.”

I can’t believe I’m letting my ex-boss talk me into working for him again. He’s arrogant. Domineering. He gets under my skin in ways I don’t want to admit. When I quit, it felt great! But now, seeing the big, bad billionaire rendered helpless by a baby, I give in to his demand. And I’m wo

Big Shot by Katy Evans blends the office romance with a forced proximity and an enemies to lovers bent into a quick read! Will and India do NOT get along. India hates how rude Will is and she finally quits...but then agrees to come back for 2 weeks.

Will is emotionally stunted and I wish this character trait was a bit more fleshed out. He is so different from his brother, yet Will blames his behavior on always trying to please his father. It made him seem like a very static character. But, he do

Big Shot by Katy Evans is a sexy office romance told from both William and India’s point of view. Big Shot can also be read as a standalone but is better read after reading Boss by Katy Evans.

About Big Shot:

The worst part of work for India is dealing with her ass of a boss William. The best part about her job is having the ability to look at her drop dead sexy boss whenever she wants. But sometimes enough is enough and this girl needs to find a new job. When she receives a freelance writing opp

Big Shot is a fast paced enemies to lovers workplace romance. I was totally hooked from the very first page. It was impossible to not fall for India. India is hard working and good at what she does. While she makes good money, she can't help but want more from her life. And it doesn't help that her boss is a jerk with a capital J! William is arrogant and speaks first and thinks later. He's used to having his way and never having anyone talk back. So, when India quits her job, it throws him total ...more

Big Shot by Katy Evans is a quick read full of sexual tension, a bit of angst, a brooding hero, a sassy as hell heroine, and an adorable baby who is determined to teach her uncle there's more to life than work.

Big Shot had everything a reader looks for in a Harlequin Desire romance: steamy attraction, interesting conflict, luxurious surroundings, and a satisfying, fast-moving plot.

I’ve been a long-time fan of Katy Evans (as you all know by now, lol) so I already had a feeling that the Harlequin Desire line would be good fit for her writing style. And it really has proven to be a fun ride, first with Boss, which was about William’s half-brother Kit, and now Big

"—William Walker, the man they say has a heart of stone. Oh, yes. Every inch of that guy is rock-hard, heart included."

The story started out exciting. I really loved the heat and sparks between William and India. She'd been tolerating his insufferable behavior for the past year and she hated her job as his assistant for that reason. I was mentally egging her on when it came to telling him off, he deserved it. How she managed to bite her tongue for so long is a miracle and I was ready for her t

William appreciates his woman's taste in food, "...she says, scrolling through the menu with a serious expression on her face. I can’t help but smile at her. “I appreciate a woman with an appetite.” I liked this book, I liked William.

India Crowley has other aspirations other than her current job. William Walker is a tough man to please. As they disclose who they are to each other is how the reader will get to know them. This is why the first person point of view works so well here.

If you are someone who likes connecting with the characters, India is much more approachable and more likable. William is more standoffish and all about business. The author makes him come to a stop when she puts someone in his path that will force

This was a enemies to lovers, boss /employee and billionaire romance.. Lots of little tropes all mixed up.
Oh add in pseudo single dad (uncle really and temporarily taking care of neice) so yea trope heavy
The heroine just didn't work for me. She was too cold and calculating. The hero was too beta.
But it read easy and moved pretty fast.
I just miss my Remy type alpha. I really miss that possessive, protective and totally masculine edge I know this author is capable of writing.

2.5 stars rounded up.

BIG SHOT by Katy Evans is a short, fast-paced read that takes place in the Windy City. It is a workplace romance between CEO William Walker and his assistant, India Crowley.

They both work very hard, however, William is a workaholic. India spends her free time writing her novel and knows that one day she will be able ...more

BIG SHOT is a light-hearted, guilty-pleasure read that can easily be digested in a sitting. India works for William as his assistant. William has cultivated an air as a heartless and cruel boss over time, calling her at all hours and never sparing any praise. When India gets a new job offer and William lays into her about being late again, she is all too happy to quit.

William is left reeling, as he has come to rely on her over time. When his life becomes more difficult (due to having to care for

Mills & Boon style is very present in Katy Evan’s second novel for Harlequin Desire, Big Shot, which was a funny easy read that I devoured whiting two days.

While I love alpha male characters I really enjoyed to have a different male lead for this one, William had insecurities and wasn’t as put together as he liked to pretend and I really appreciated to have a human character as the hero in this story. Now, India, I didn’t really feel like I connected with her but it was still quite fun to re
What a great office romance this proved to be! He has a reputation for being a mean, arrogant boss and she's his PA - until he makes one comment too many and she quits. He then ends up looking after his baby niece and is desperate for India to help him again. She eventually agrees - but only after negotiating herself a great deal . . . or is it such a great deal when seeing him with the baby has her dreaming?

I first read about William in BOSS, and I was curious about him. Now I'm just in love with him.

This story about William and India was funny and sexy. The beginning of their story is a little bit like Kit and Alex story, with the animosity and the enemies-to-lovers vibe, but at the same time it wasn't the same, because Will and Indy's personalities are different, and also the situations were different.

I had a lot of fun reading BIT SHOT. It was a quick read, with its sweet and romantic moments,

The only problem with this book is that it was too short. I really enjoyed watching William and India discover each other as well learn things about themselves. William Walker runs his business like a tight ship. He is not friendly with his employees and can sometimes be quite rude. India Crowley has worked for William for a few years and is fed up with his treatment of her. When a great opportunity comes along, she quits with glee. Suddenly William is in a bind and needs India’s help. What happ ...more

I probably should start the review with sharing that I really don't care for 1st person narration- though I would not give a book a negative star rating solely based on narration, however it does play a factor in this review. I found the writing to be clunky, lacked flow and had a very informal writing style that I do not usually see in Harlequin books. Putting aside the writing style I was prepared to be entertained - yet I found both characters to be unlikable and the story was boring, leading ...more

BIG SHOT by Katy Evans is the story of William Walker and India Crowley.
William is a workaholic who has built Walker Industries which is one of the biggest online game companies. Which has also left him with being sometimes harsh and thought to be cold due to his main focus being building that company. India was his assistant until she go a better offer and just couldn't take his attitude anymore. But now he is left in a bind when he has to look after his infant niece and he turns to India for

Big Shot by Katy Evans tells the story of India who absolutely despises her boss, William whom she describes as “a pompous pretty boy.”

Even though William is a terror in the office he has a good heart, as seen when caring for his 4-month old niece. After India quits he asks her for a favor, come back to work for him for two weeks, so he can care for his niece and get work done. She reluctantly agrees.

If you’ve read The Boss you will recall William, but this book can be read as a stand-a-lone. T

Big Shot by Katy Evans is a steamy enemies-to-lovers office romance. India has had enough of her boss. He is arrogant and cold. So, she hands in her resignation and walks away. Then Will finds himself in need of help. He grovels and gives her an offer she cannot refuse. Suddenly she is seeing him in a new light.

Will is demanding and rude and used to getting what he wants. India is feisty and smart. She has never bent to Will’s needs, but suddenly they are working very close together and lines a
Big shot is a stand-alone but his brother Kits story came out before this. William is a workaholic.

She wasn’t happy anymore and her feelings for William are well more than they should be.

A boss and his assistant, oh my!

I really wanted to get to Will's story after reading Boss. Will is such grumpy cat. You just know the hero will be so demanding in bed when they are so curt in the office, taking command of all situations. India was a pretty confident woman as well, and her despising Will for his rude, bossy behavior just made their chemistry.

What I found very interesting is that Will was confident in the office, but very withdrawn in love. India was very withdrawn in the office

William is the boss from hell! India has had enough of his demeaning, rude behavior. She quits in a spectacular way. Finally she's able to tell him off! What a jerk! Too bad she also thinks he's hot! When William heard how horrible he treated India, he begins to reevaluate his life. That's when life throws him a curve ball, and he desperately needs India's help. She agrees to help him, only because he's trippling her pay. At least that's what she tells herself. This is a sweet, sexy read that I ...more

This book was good. India and William’s story is an enemies to lovers story. He is the tough as nails boss and she is his assistant until one day he takes it too far and she quits. He ends up calling and begging her to come back when he has to spend two weeks watching his niece so he can get some work done. Being outside the office they are able to see a different side to each other and explore a new found chemistry. William isn’t Katy’s typical aloha male, he’s a little more unsure of himself w ...more

A big thank you to NetGalley and Harlequin Desire for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. A very convoluted but basically assistant falls in love a boss. India quits because William is cold and grumpy but.he talks her into helping him out when he ends up babysitting his niece. William is a smart challenges guy with odd hangups but basically an ok guy. I didn't really get the.chemistry but it reads ok. I rate this a 3.

William a truly all work no fun workaholic, finds himself watching for his niece and without an assistant and issues with his dad. India had to leave her job, her feelings for William are more than what she knows is right. However she gets herself living at his house, watching her niece and helping him with his work, but with some rules in place. Two weeks and what do you think will happen? Fast reading story with an enemies to lovers, billionaire boss and a sexy woman, fantastic read.

Outstanding! I absolutely love Harlequin books. Mix in Katy Evans with her ability to craft attention grabbing characters; well, the book will be destined to be a top notch read.

I loved the pacing, humor and simplicity of their romance. The weariness and uncertainty in William. The desire and breaking down of India’s walls. All of it combined made this a winner for me!

An epic Harlequin read!

I like books like Big Shot, partly because you can read them in a day or so, partly because of the whole falling for your boss theme. It's a little taboo, against the rules, and this one already has a year of tension for them to overcome. I mean, some of the side character moments seemed rushed, but it's a short book. It was entertaining, and romantic, with a romantically awkward hero and a sassy assistant. I enjoyed it.

4.5 🍒🍒🍒🍒popped!

Totally enjoyed this quick & sexy read by Author Katy Evans.

William & India kept me entertained with their pull back and forth with each other.
India coming to William's rescue when he needs it had me swooning. She knew she couldn't resist helping him even though he drove her nuts.
Great banter, sexy, swooning moments that make this book one to pick up and enjoy.
