Tee loves Kyle Jacobson
Where do I begin with this review..... I have no idea because this is the first book I have ever read by W.S. and let me tell you this will not be the last. I mean I read the blurb and said this is one book I want to read and when I started reading I was so entranced with the book that I could not put it down. I read all night until I was done and when I was finished I wanted more and I was like oh hell no I need more. Amari and Gianna are two amazing characters and they both know what they want ...more

4.5 stars...What a ride!!

I have been a fan of WS since his first book. Every time just gets better and better. When he announced that he was releasing BOSS, I could not wait!!

Amari is not one to be messed with. I didn't know what to expect after he got out of prison, but he had a plan and that was to make sure he was going to get what was owed to him. Talk about hooked!! :) Page after page, I was amazed at the things he accomplished. The love he has for his family made me love him even more. Whe

"Amari smiles at me like he already knows he owns me, and now he's about to take pleasure in making sure I know it too."

Let me preface that I enjoyed many parts of this story. Amari is a character easy to fall in love with, cocky, assured, brought himself from nothing to something, incredibly intelligent, street-smart, and strong in his presence. Aside from being a little choppy in the beginning, and repetitive in his dialogue, I enjoyed him very much. The intimate scenes were steamy, and their
Natalie Weston Book Club Gone Wrong
Intense action and danger paired with steamy love scenes make for an enjoyable read.

Amari was very self assured, streetwise and over the top cocky. He knew exactly what he wanted and would stop at nothing to get it.

Gianna was classy and a little badassy herself. The confidence she had in herself poured off the pages. She to knew what she wanted.

The chemistry between her and Amari was combustible right from the start.

There was nothing these two couldn't accomplish together .

All in all this was

Loved it

I loved this book. Amari and Gianna were dynamic together. Two people from different backgrounds going hard for each other against all odds. There was romance, suspense and adventure. Read this book. You won't be disappointed. I hope the other Goddard siblings get a story.
Caitlin Audet
Amari Goddard is coming out of prison after being away for 5 years on a mission to raise himself up higher than anyone thought possible. All that time being locked up was actually a good thing, giving Amari the knowledge of what he wants to do and gave him something to look forward to. What he didn't count on but was actually a great bonus was meeting Gianna Capone, casino/club owner with a few hidden secrets of her own. Like attracts like and these two were already burning before their night wa ...more

I saw a teaser for Boss and the cover and I pretty much decided right then and there that I wanted to read it. I didn’t really pay attention to the synopsis and while that has backfired for me a time or two before, this was definitely not one of those instances. I did have those new-author-jitters because I’ve been in one of my finicky moods and I was a bit worried that that would affect they way I read Boss, but all of my nerves were for nothing because I absolutely loved Boss!

Amari has to really hit the ground running after he gets out of prison, as he finds himself the head of his family, so it was up to him to do whatever it took like he promised. And nothing was going to get in the way of his plan. Gianna was a heroine who should have been a boy, that's how tough she was, but since she was a girl, she couldn't enter the family business, which always just irritated her, plus I'm of the same mind that it was unfair. When these two meet, instant sparks are flying eve ...more

I really like this rags to riches story. That has a completely different twist to what I have read in the past. I didn't really see how this man could go from nothing to everything when I first read the blurb but my god, what I got was more than I ever thought possible. It was a genius story.

I really liked this book. It was refreshing to read something a little lighter and down to earth than I have been reading recently.
Amari is a bad boy! He's a bad boy alpha male if I ever read one and hes hot. Stepping out fron his recent incarceration he has BIG plans and boy are they big lol
Miss Capone is also fab too, strong and sassy, she takes no sh!t from anyone. You don't get where she is in this life without making a few waves, but she's more than capable of backing it up.

This was a great story. I have enjoyed everything I have read by this author so far !!
My favorite thing about these characters was that they didn't have to change for each other or lose any of their personality. They were able to come together as one and conquer the world.
The story was full of suspense and danger. I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the floor to drop a number of times. It had all the feels and nothing was over or under done. Amari was the complete bad a$$ with a heart of

An intense ride from start to finish! Amari, recently released from prison, has a plan to help his family. Well, of course it's not exactly legal but he's got the confidence and intelligence to pull it off. Gianna, Italian mafia blood, has her own illegal operations to impress her father. The two connect and it's a whole new family, Mafioso and gangsters. I found the intensity of the book thrilling and the pages heated up quickly. However, the repetitive language got tiresome and his thug-like w ...more

After reading WS Greer's previous novel Manman, which I absolutely devoured, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Boss, and boy did it not disappoint.

This book follows Amari, a bad boy recently released from prison and has a plan to improve things for his family, and once he has he eye set on something there is no stopping him. Then you have Gianna, a mafia boss's daughter, she is a great character.

This is such a well-written book, and full of so much detail that the story literally jumps out of

I really tried to read this book. It did not grab me from the beginning & I could not connect to the characters. Maybe I gave up too quick (I very seldom give up on a book), but with this one, I tried 3 different times & I couldn’t get into it.
I can’t really explain it, maybe I was in the wrong mood trying to read it. Sorry, but I just couldn’t finish it.

Amari and Gianna’s story is an intense and intriguing roller coaster journey from beginning to end. This story is dark, violent, action packed and filled with suspense and thrills. The only down side in my opinion anyway, is that the story is a tad repetitive, however, I look forward to reading more from this author.

I love mafia romance, and this is my first time reading WS Greer. Amari was such a well-done character! Something from nothing… Loved that! Gianna was written as a very strong heroine… Loved that too! When Amari and Gianna get together, watch out! Intense, dark, steamy suspense! I’m looking forward to reading more by this author.

I absolutely LOVE this author. His mafia books are so action packed and the hotness level is a 10! Amari and Gianna are absolutely PERFECT in this book. You have the best blend of street smarts and old school mafia in this book. LOVED it!

It's an ok book

I don't believe that this is the best book WS has written, Carter will always be my favorite character, I didn't fall in love with Amaury, I like to love the main man, and not enough action for me. Not a bad read tho

Shelves: garbage
The only reason this book is two stars is because there was a decent plot and the characters were well rounded. However, at 69% this was a DNF because I just couldn’t take the ‘hood slang’. It was just ridiculous and grated on every last nerve.

Boss was so interesting to me because from the beginning it felt real, from the descriptions of Amari's release from prison, to where he came from, and his family life it all felt like you were part of the atmosphere. Amari grew up in poverty but he was super smart and one day at his 9 to 5 he got extremely discouraged because his boss would not let him grow in the company citing excuse after excuse, so he did something not so smart that landed him in prison. The time in prison allowed him to th ...more

4 mafioso stars!!! Holy wow.... what a book!!!

I love a good mobster story and this book has it all! Amari is one bad, bad man and you can't help but fall for that sexy beast! His backstory is crazy, but crazy in all the good ways. And then you add in Gianna and these two together are just electric! I can't even tell you how so good this book is... you just need to go read this yourself! Like go now!
