Thirteen years before Emma Dumas bought me in a bachelor auction to teach me a lesson she stole my heart down on Key West. I fell so hard for this girl I made all the promises. Only with Emma, I really meant them.

And then I disappeared.

But it wasn’t my fault. Let’s just call my reason “Family Business”. I’d tell you what that business is, but then I’d have to kill you. Jus

So entertaining!

Another hit out of the park for J.A. Huss. I will definitely be reading the rest of this series! I loved this book and I loved Jesse Boston! This one was especially hilarious because Jesse used to be a drunken playboy in his younger days. He was so bad that at one time down in Key West he got with four separate girls during one week and told them all the same story about how they were the one and how he would show them the world.

After never hearing from Jesse again, these four

Is it possible to love and not like a book? Well that is how I feel...I LOVED parts of it and parts of it well...not so loved.

Emma is a wounded woman. While she is one of four owners of a billion dollar cosmetics company and has the world at her fingertips, she has been harboring anger towards a boy she met 13 years ago. A boy she felt an instant connection to. A boy who stole her heart. A boy who made her think soulmates were possible. A boy she wanted to spend forever with. This boy though....
3-3.5 stars
This felt like two very different books to me and sadly, I didn't so much care for the first half. I had a really hard time with Emma and her dumbass friends. These "women" were ridiculous and stupid and for fucks sake, 12 years have gone by, get the fuck over it.
However, once we got to (view spoiler)

This author has been on my TBR for awhile now. I am happy to have jumped in with this book. I knew from the blurb that this was going to be a fun ride. Jesse and Emma have a history. But 13 years later, there is still a bit of angst around their whole situation.

Comedy, sass, steamy chemistry, meddling friends and family and a superbly matched power couple. Great summer read! The other men in the Boston family intrigue me as well. I'm not sure where the story line will go. There is a bit of a my

OMG. OMFG. WTF? This ending man. LOL. This is the best book. This one seemed like it was going to be a little more light romcon but then there is some creepy weird stuff in the end which I can't reveal because obviously I don't want to spoil it. But it's one of those "JA Huss things" and it worked it's way in. I can't wait for the audio on the next book.

This was a nice surprise. When I read this was a kidnapping I did not expect the end result. This was quite funny at times, and not everyones humour, but I enjoyed it. (I am a big fan of this author, and she writes some weird stuff at times) and I get it.
I loved cocky Jesse, and Emma was just his match. She was great. ( hell have no fury like a woman scorned)
Jesse certainly comes from a strange family and I still do not know what they do exactly, but who cares, this sis about Jesse

I just Didn’t connect with Emma only read up to 40% of the book but just was struggling she roofied him and still kidnapped him after hearing what he had to say about his past . Yeah he slept around so what you had 1 night with him does that account to a relationship erm no , yeah you bonded with the other girls he slept with which one of them is such a hypocrite she is doing the same damm thing 2 dates different men on same night but still feel it’s right to get revenge on Jesse .

I had a ridiculous amount of fun reading this and I cannot wait for more Bossy Brothers!

Okay, so Jesse and Emma have history. History that Emma wants revenge over … Let the games begin!

I’m not gonna lie and tell you that some of this is a little far-fetched and OTT, because … shenanigans LOLOL However, I will say that it’s because of its OTT that this story is just plain fun! It worked. I personally found it to be a unique plot with eccentric twists. Both Jesse and Emma sparked off the pages

Oh that J.A. Huss. Her imagination is far beyond anything I can comprehend and boy, am I happy she shares it with us! With Bossy Brothers: JESSE, I began reading thinking it would be a great little rom-com about one woman's plan to exact revenge on the man who broke her heart 13 years prior. And at the start, that's what I got. But silly me, I should have figured that any book written by Ms. Huss will undoubtedly get a bit more involved and would ultimately put a bit of shock in me before it was ...more

What starts as a incredibly fun, light-hearted romantic comedy eventually turns into a wickedly twisted mystery. The queen of conspiracy strikes again! Author J.A. Huss’ latest novel, Bossy Brothers: Jesse, is all kinds of fun.

This book was so easy to jump into. I was engaged with the characters from the start; no need to figure them out to warm up to them. Emma Dumas and her girl tribe are great! The girls met thirteen years ago and bonded over their spring-break one-night stands. These girls

Wow I absolutely love this story. We meet Jesse Boston and Emma Dumas. After a weekend to remember back when they were just young and dumb teenagers. Fast forward 13 years and after both of them becoming insanely rich either by family or hard work and an impromptu auction and kidnapping, have them meeting back up again.

The chemistry and back and forth banter between these two had me laughing my ass off. Jesse definitely met his match when it comes to sassy Emma. She is one pocket rocket and can

BOSSY BROTHERS: Jesse by J. A. Huss.
Emma Dumas met Jesse Boston about 13 years ago, they felt a connection. Emma thought that they were soulmates and everything with that. But Emma learns that Jesse is a playboy and has said pretty much the same things to a few other women. Those women and Emma end up being great friends that go on to become very well off but neither forgot the hurt Jesse made them feel. In the current day they think to kidnap Jesse from a bachelor auction that his brother rope

This book started out as a fun read but quickly developed into something more. JA Huss has a clever way of writing that had me smiling one moment, then had my mouth gaping and questions galore the next.

Emma and Jesse have a past that Emma remembers clearly, Jesse not so much. Jesse is one of three Boston brothers. In his youth, he was spoilt, rich and arrogant. Although he has cleaned up his act, Emma still remembers the old Jesse and is wary. Emma has grown to be a take-charge boss. She is no

This is my official review by the author but not my first read ever. I got drawn to this book by the blurb!!

This is a story of a boy and a girl, they were wild together, fell in love, were young and reckless together…until the only boy she ever loved LEFT HER! Fast forward to 13 years and by a kidnapping and impromptus auction incident(s), they meet again. But now they are older, more mature and both very successful.

3.5 ⭐️

A 2nd chance romance with a revenge plot thrown in. This part was all good.

Emma and her 3 friends and business partners had all been subject to the attentions and subsequent dismissal of Jesse when they were teenagers and hatch a plot to get revenge 13 years later. Emma is the only one who developed real feelings.

Things go wrong with their revenge plot and Emma starts to get to know Jesse however this is when a strange confusing element hinting at assassins/cults/mafia type goings on are

**I received a free copy of this book to read and review from the author.**

Jesse Boston and Emma Dumas met in Key West when they were teenagers. Jesse was a player and she wasn't the only one he had a one night stand with and left without a word. Emma teaming up with three other women who Jesse walked out on that same weekend, went and made something of themselves being the top multimillion dollar makeup developers. Jesse fell into family money. He was the youngest of the Boston brothers always

I enjoyed this series opener. I liked strong bossy Emma. She took charge of her future and flipped the tables on Jessie, showing him what its like to sweep someone away and overwhelm them by throwing your money/lifestyle at them (like he had done numerous times to girls just to f*ck 'em and forget about 'em). She took her power back and put them on equal footing. Jessie was able to be himself and open up about the truth of his life and open his heart and mind to truly connect with Emma beyond th ...more
Holy SHIT! WTAF did I just read?!?!

Ok let’s first start off with how amazing this story was! Jesse and Emma first met 13 years ago when they had an amazing weekend together, making promise after promise. He took off and left her where she met 3 other ladies at a bar that all had 2 things in common... Jesse and the same promises!!! What an asshole right? 13 years later these women turned into kickass self made rich women with a revenge plan. To teach Jesse a lesson he’ll never forget!!

In true JA
JA Huss is such a talented writer! She delivers another hit in Bossy Brothers. Bossy Brothers is Book #1 in a new series by JA Huss. This book takes us on a funny, entertaining, complicated, twisted, sexy, and steamy ride with a little conspiracy thrown in!

I loved the dynamic between Jesse and Emma. Their chemistry was hot! The one-up shenanigans & "eyebrow innuendos" had me cracking up. The secondary characters were entertaining as well. Jesse's brothers are mysterious and I am dying to know mo

Sweet holy hell

This dang author... I should have known better than to think that this was going to be a lighter side to Huss. I figured it would have a little mystery(because let's be real there is always mystery) but didn't think it would leave me on the edge of my seat dying for answers. Shame on me. Not that I'm complaining since that is one of the reasons this author is a favorite.

I loved the bantering between the characters. I adored the Dumas family. I was sucked in by the mystery trying t

Man! I don't know how Huss does it. Jesse seemed like it was going to be good, old-fashioned, contemporary romance with some revenge humor and second-chances rolled in. Then it became something else. Something more. And I absolutely enjoyed the ride! I'm going to admit right now to NOT knowing what the heck is going on at this point. NOT.ONE.THING. But Huss has me hooked. I'm eager to see what her devious mind has come up with for us this time. So even though I thought this was go

I liked this book even though it’s weird. I would have automatically given it 4 stars but I read right up to 100%.

The EOBS, I think needs to be talked about.

If I pay for a book, I have the right to review it the way I feel. I honestly do. And so is anyone who does. But saying how a person is bad and horrible because of their opinion is incredibly sad.

We’re readers. We pay for these books. I love romance books—even the horrible ones that have a happy ending. So writing a whole page on why a re

Another amazing read that had me intrigued from the start. Jesse and Emma are absolutely a couple that you will not forget. The way that Jesse and Emma reconnect is priceless. There is nothing like a scorned woman wanting revenge but Emma gets so much more. Another 5 Star read that had be completely hooked.

Well, what a ride!
If this is just book one of the series, then all I can say is I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of the guys.
It didn’t take long for the content to draw me in and hold me, hostage, don’t get me wrong I was a willing participant but I couldn’t have walked away even if I had wanted too there was so much going on that had I turned my back on them I had a feeling they would have revolted!

I simply adored this fast paced light hearted RomCom. The storyline kept me smiling, laughing, and at times my eyes popping open at the OMG moments. This is a very well written book with characters that I absolutely fell in love with and with surprises that blew me away.

Emma is a very rich, sassy, independent woman who thinks up a hairbrained scheme to get back at Jessie, the womanizer that broke her heart 10 years ago. Jesse is a billionaire playboy who spent his early twenties living life in a

This book was perfect for Jesse and Emma, I loved their connection and the games they played with each other. Their times together were filled with funny moments and some very hot scenes, I loved all their interactions and the stubbornness they both had. I really enjoyed how strong they both were in their own way as well as how all the other cha
