Length: 319 pages

The first time I met Chase Parker, I didn’t exactly make a good impression.

I was hiding in the bathroom hallway of a restaurant, leaving a message for my best friend to save me from my awful date.

He overheard and told me I was a bitch, then proceeded to offer me some dating advice.

So I told him to mind his own damn business—his own tall, gorgeous, full-of-himself damn business—and went back to my miserable date.

When he walked by my table, he smirked, and I watched his arrogant, sexy ass walk back to his date.

I couldn’t help but sneak hidden glances at the condescending jerk on the other side of the room. Of course, he caught me on more than one occasion, and winked.

When the gorgeous stranger and his equally hot date suddenly appeared at our table, I thought he was going to rat me out.

But instead, he pretended we knew each other and joined us—telling elaborate, embarrassing stories about our fake childhood.

My date suddenly went from boring to bizarrely exciting.

When it was over and we parted ways, I thought about him more than I would ever admit, even though I knew I’d never see him again.

I mean, what were the chances I’d run into him again in a city with eight million people?
Then again…

What were the chances a month later he’d wind up being my new sexy boss?

My Review

Vi Keeland's writing, as always, was a delight to read. The opening scene, the infamous bad date, was both cute and funny. The overall tone of this book was almost witty and extremely sweet. Although it touches on some pretty deep topics, it still felt pretty light and fun.

Who made this book so great for me???

^^^ That man right there. Bossman aka Chase aka Gilberto Fritsch. His image is what carried me through this story. This is what I pictured in every single scene. I know I sound perverted and I don't freaking care!!

Let's just agree that I was a very happy woman while reading this book.

wink

Chase's character was handsome, sexy, charming, brilliant, successful, protective, loyal, considerate, passionate, etc. I LOVED Chase!!

Reese, unfortunately, annoyed me for the first 80% of the book.

shutup

That's pretty much how I felt whenever she opened her mouth. Considering the story is primarily told from her POV, I was saying this a lot. She wasn't witty. She wasn't cute. She wasn't charming. I only liked her because Chase was hopelessly in love with her. And I wanted him to be happy. Do I think she's good for him? Absolutely. But I was slow to warm up to her. By the end though, I wasn't a fan, but she and I were cool.

Honestly, Chase was this story. The tragedy of his past completely shaped him and further endeared him to me (he really didn't need help to get me to like him), and I especially liked how the author wove in his healing, then his backslide, and his path to healing again.

Great story.
