He’s the boss. But she’s ready to take charge.
In this provocative and sexy* office romance, a cheeky new hire tempts a hotshot sports agent to mix business with pleasure.

Jenny: Job interviews are a bitch under the best of circumstances, but when your potential boss is the world’s biggest prick, that’s when you should simply walk away. It’s just that I need this job so badly—and I’m mesmerized by Ethan Mason’s piercing gaze. Men like him aren’t supposed to exist in real life. But under the tailored suits and GQ looks, Ethan simmers with barely restrained ambition. And no matter how hard I work to fight the attraction, I’m going to get burned.
Ethan: You don’t become a top agent without learning how to close a deal. I always get what—or who—I want, by staying cool and in command. Then Jenny Jackson walks into my office with her lush curves and “screw you” attitude and blows away my intentions of keeping things professional. All I can think about is exploring the perfect body hidden beneath those conservative clothes or shutting her saucy mouth with one hot kiss. Jenny’s worth breaking the rules over—if I can convince her to break the rules for me.

REVIEW

Jenny Jackson needs this job. She has limited time with her father and the medical bills are piling up. Of course on the day she’s going for an interview for the job of her dreams does everything go wrong, including running into an arrogant asshole that wasn’t ready for Jenny’s quick wit. Apparently Jenny Jackson can dish it out just as well as she can take it. And that’s my kind of heroine!

Imagine her surprise when she walks into her interview to discover the same prick that she met earlier. Jenny already knows what direction this interview is going to go; straight to the crapper. So Jenny wastes no breath on what she thinks of the pompous Ethan Mason, and schools him like a boss!! But Jenny can’t believe his retort…

“When can you start?”
“Excuse me? Did we just experience the same interview?”

Jenny and Ethan have quite the explosive relationship. It’s a good thing that they can’t agree on anything, otherwise they would be tearing each other’s clothes off. Their chemistry is ON FIRE. But Jenny needs this job to help provide for her father, and she’s not going to let her drop dead gorgeous boss stand in her way.
I loved Jenny and Ethan’s banter and wit. It’s like they’ve known each other for years and knew just what buttons to push.

I loved that she could give it back just as hard as I dished it out. Boring women were just that-boring. Could Jenny Jackson be interesting for the rest of our lives?

WOAH! Where did that come from?!? Ethan Mason doesn’t settle down. He keeps people at a distance. He keeps his walls stacked high and heavy. But so does Jenny. This is why they are perfect for each other, and why they drove me crazy, in good ways and some not so good ways.

Let’s talk about the things that I loved about this book. It was a quick, fun, and sexy read that had one of my favorite troupes: Baseball. But this was from a different perspective of a sports romance. We weren’t dealing with an athlete, we were dealing with the agent and I really enjoyed seeing things from that end. I loved how witty Jenny was. The relationships in here was also great. I personally loved Jenny’s relationship with her dad, and Ethan’s relationship with his best friend Matt. Both made you fall in love with both main characters.

So what I wasn’t so hot for: the back and forth. There was a lot of it. There were a lot of insecurities between these two, but it was borderline immaturity. These were grown adults, but they were definitely not acting like it. By the 3rd incident I was just ready to move on.

I really enjoyed how Howell wrapped everything up towards the end. It ended with a lot of heart and I’m a sucker for a good Epilogue! And there’s enough intrigue towards the end that may have me looking for a sequel.
