Boss I Love to Hate

(Briskin Billionaire Brothers #2)

Dear Mr. Brisken,

How do I hate you?
Let me count the ways.

>I hate your smug, sexy millionaire face.
>I hate your cocky, skirt chasing, playboy ways.
>I hate working as your secretary—but, I love the pay. It almost makes dealing with you worth it.

>I hate how my friends call you a BILF, when really BILK (Boss I’d like to kill) is more appropriate.

>I hate that I need you to be

This was a beautiful, sweet and lighthearted romance read ❣️
After my last unhappy reading experience, Brad and Sonia’s story was exactly what I needed!!!

An enjoyable slow burn office romance with a fake boyfriend and not-exactly-enemies to lovers!!!

The writing was wonderful, the lines were amazing, the characters well developed and easy to connect with, there was romance and little drama, I really devoured it!

Brad’s brothers were very interesting and his nieces adorable!

Over the years I've come to love Mia Kayla's books. Every time she publishing a new book, I get giddy with excitement.
The blurb of this book sounds like a cliche one but don't be fooled...Boss I Love To Hate was one entertaining read! I loved it! I enjoyed reading the office romance/enemies to lovers storyline so much so that I didn't realise I was coming to the end of the book.

I enjoyed the characters and their personalities... I laughed my ass off during so many scenes in this book...I love

I am actually going to rate this book 2 stars. But then I forced myself to finish it and end up liking it very much. Especially Brad. The name of the hero can be better than Brad, but hey, its just a name.

At first Brad is very confusing character. He is portrays as a mean and cruel boss. But underneath it, he is warm, vulnerable and in desperate need of a good woman. A woman he loves and builds life with. Little did he knows, Sonya has been sitting in front of him the whole time. Sonya is his s
I always loved enemies to lovers, office romance story and it was an easy, realistic and humorous book to read.
I really enjoyed this story. The back and forth play between Sonia and Brad is what makes this book.
A great read that I will definitely recommend to others!

Brad Sebastian Brisken is the boss of Sonia Vanducci and while she doesn’t let him tread all over her she also makes no bones about the fact she hates him to her friends and family! She even has a photo of his face as a dartboard in her apartment which has been in regular use over the two years she’s worked for him! So could they ever like each other?

The humour in this book is outstanding and really has you laughing out loud. The teen issue with Brad’s niece is just one example that is hilarious

A few months ago, I signed up to the free trial of Kindle Unlimited because my sister wanted to read one specific book that was available there. Of course, I told myself I’d cancel it right after, and yet, here I am, reading all kinds of nonsense now available to me for the price of subscription.

What can I tell you? It was satisfyingly predictable and predictably satisfying.

In general, I’m rather uncomfortable with love stories between bosses and their subordinates, because in real life the pow

This had a slower start than I expected, though I think some of that is because I thought Sonia was a bit pathetic. I get being sad and all, but pining for a guy who dumped you eight months along just isn't engaging to me. And at least part of that is because this is a romance story so if he were worth her pining, he'd be the romantic lead. So we know he isn't worthy of her emotional distress and seeing her not only not moving on, but having him be such a major part of her motivation was off-put ...more

An entertaining read from start to finish.

Boss I Love to Hate is kind of a second chance at romance. However, these two characters never dated one another and haven't had an inkling of desire until a deal was struck between them. It doesn't hurt that neither person looks like a troll or anything. Now that I think about it.. this book could definitely be a mash of enemies to lovers.. and a second chance at romance.

In it, you will meet Sonia and Brad. He is her boss and she is his secretary. Thes

Unappealing blurb. Why? I know there’s a book oit there where the fmc also hates her boss but also needs him to be her date for a family wedding and she blackmails him to do it because she caught him in a compromising position with another woman. This book is so, so similar, for what I could understand from the blurb.
Geezz... really?! 😒😏

Boss I Love to Hate: An Office Romance was so fun! I felt slumpy-ish again in the first days of may and a funny enemies to lovers office romcom is what I really needed. I loved how fluffy this was. There wasn't much angst which usually would lower my enjoyment but it worked perfectly in this one. I loved Sonia and Brad's journey and development. I also loved his little nieces. They were adorable. If you need a sweet, fun, quick read I absolutely recommend this one. ...more

Boss I love to Hate was an effortless read. The story pace was perfect, the character development thorough and the dialogue is both realistic and humorous. However, the build of the romantic relationship in Boss I Love to Hate is what makes it a great read.

Sonia is a kick arse heroine. She isn't impressed by her boss Brad. His good looks and his money don't hide the fact that he is a self-centred arse. She does her job well and has zero feelings towards her hunky boss of two years. Her friend c

Wow, this is a very cute enemies to lovers, office romance story.
I loved the banter between Sonia and Brad before she showed Brad how much of a douch noodle he was. I LOVED how they both understood the value of putting family first in their own ways.
The way Brad showed Sonia how to not take things so seriously, to be able to just breath and be herself a little more. You gotta love a book boyfriend who can laugh at himself. This is most definitely a you gotta read it for me :)

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This book was such a good read. An enemies to lovers.... kind of. Enemies might be a strong word but either way this book was great. Also it was pretty funny. I laughed out loud at Sonia's dartboard!!! There is a lot of build up and tension. They don't run into anything which I loved it wasn't an insta love etc. When Brad owes Sonia favor we get to see Brad for who he really is and underneath the suits he actually is a human. That opens Sonia's ...more

I appreciate that this was more focused on actually getting into the relationship rather than anything else. At first I really didn’t like Sonia and I thought her reaction to Jeff was incredibly dramatic. She pissed me off a lot. She got better towards the end but still, she’s just another heroine I don’t care for. I really adored Brad though. He was a sweetie through and through and I didn’t really understand Sonia’s disdain for him?? I assumed it was meant to be a ene

I’m a mood reader and as it turns out, I was in the mood for this!

I had three minutes to download something onto my kindle and get out the door. I had three hours of a kid’s birthday party to sit through, and three hours of avoiding forced small talk with fellow parents. This was the last book I’d added to my TBR list and therefore was the chosen one.

Honestly if I wasn’t short for time I don’t think I would have ever picked this up, but I’m so glad I did.

Boss I Love To Hate gave me all the feels. I absolutely loved Sonia and Brad’s story, from the banter, the slow-burn, and the sparks that fly when they finally get together. Add in two adorable nieces that Brad would do anything for, and I was a goner.

Mia Kayla weaves a story that will keep you flipping the pages, waiting to see what happens next. I guarantee you will smile, swoon, and hope for their relationship to overcome whatever obstacle comes its way.

This is a must-read romance that will

I loved this one!

Boss I Love To Hate is hot and steamy office romance that reminded me why I love this trope so much. The push and pull between Brad and Sonia are tangible, they keep you on your toes and you can't wait to turn the next page to find out what will happen next. The slowly burning romance between the duo is real, and it gradually evolves with their relationship. I loved Sonia's sassiness, and couldn't get enough of Brad's sweetness! Yes, the guy is acting like a big a*shole most of

Hoping for a good one! I’ve never read this author before.

I found the set up of this a little... unbelievable. Like, everything set up neatly with a little bow. I also found Sonia’s attitude to Brad annoying - like he’s your boss, stop whining and do your job that your apparently getting Mary Sue overpaid for.

I guess I just didn’t like her - too childish, too entitled, too selfish, too dramatic - and hence lost interest in the story.

Diane (Books and Tequila Blog)
Boss I Love To Hate is such a fun, cute story. It is loaded with snarky humor. It is a real enemies to lovers romance that shows how narrow the line between love and hate is.

“Truth was, this was my fault. A lie that had snowballed into an avalanche, and now, I was asking him to lie for me again on our double date.”

This was my first book by this author and I can’t wait to discover more of her stories.

Starting out, this book seemed like a combination of tropes I usually enjoy very much, so imagine my surprise when it didn’t work for me! At all!

I’m one to rarely rate a book so low so I feel terrible, but it wasn’t just one or two things that didn’t gel for me; it was the writing style, the unlikable main characters, the cringey moments, the continuity issues, the constant repitition of phrases and thoughts, everything annoyed me. Moments that were supposed to be adorable were drawing

I found myself completely smitten with Boss I Love to Hate. Mia Kayla has outdone herself here. It has 10 Things I Hate About You feel to it. This is one of the best romantic comedies no matter the fact that it's over 10 years old. Just like the movie, Boss I Love to Hate is fun and upbeat while occasionally giving us some sweet heart to hearts. The banter between Sonia and Brad were through the roof. I adored their good-natured flirting and the way they tried to pick at each other. It was swoon ...more

This was my first Mia Kayla book and now I'm hooked!
The writing style for one has mr feeling like I'm right in the story with the characters which I love! Sonia, I freakin' adored her. She made me laugh so much.

*spoiler* the dart board of his face I loved so much.

Brad, you can't hate him. (Especially not the way Sonia did.. lol) especially when you get to know him.

Im not the greatest at reviews, but all I can say is I loved this book so much! Its definitely a new fav and I highly recommend i

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review. This book was a slow build up to a HEA. There were a couple of times where I was sure the book was going to follow a standard romance recipe but the reality was that the situation was in the book to develop the characters in a certain way. It was a sweet romance. There were the standard romance misunderstandings at the end, but they didn't last long and the characters were level headed and the HEA came quickly.

DNF - I tried, I love office romances but this one I couldn't get into.
I didn't like Sonia, I get she was cheated on but she was kind of a bia to her boss and Brad want even that bad. Like at all.
He sleeps with girls and is a CEO. He might if shaped at her but he never did anything really mean to her.
I skimmed through alot of this book and just couldn't anymore.

A love a book that can take me by surprise. When I was reading chapter 1, I thought that Sonia was going to be my person and it would take me a while to like Brad, but as it turned out, I liked Brad more than I liked Sonia. To be honest, I got the impression that the author wanted to write a different kind of hero than the average one, but she decided to go with the most used and (most hated for me) way by making him a manwhore. Throughout the book, we are reminded that Brad has slept with many ...more

I haven't liked a book this much in a long time! I absolutely love that this book didn't follow the romance novel check list. It was unique, sweet, and I love that it wasn't strung along. Every single part of this book had a purpose, and it totally fulfilled them. It wasn't drawn out, it was the perfect length. Not left feeling like oh that's it, but also not left feeling like can this just be done already. It wasn't crowded with unnecessary scenes, all just built up the characters and their lov ...more

Cute slow burn romance!

This was a cute read. It was a very slow burn but it would be expected with the events that took place. I loved the chemistry these two shared and I really liked how they were honest with each other instead of beating g around the Bush forever. I love how Brad just went with and even found it funny about the poster. Not sure why but the poster and what it represented was hilarious
