He was supposed to be my first and only one-night stand.
He was definitely never supposed to become my boss.

I had always been the good girl – the workaholic with every second of her life mapped out to a tee.

Then I got trapped in an elevator with Julian Hoult.

He was… irresistible. Sophisticated sex in a crisp white shirt. His voice alone dropped me straight to my knees. What was I supposed to do?


I can tell you what I was definitely not supposed to do.

I was not supposed to run into him ever again. I was not supposed to be desperately unemployed, and I was definitely not supposed to accept his dirty little job offer.

But I couldn’t resist.

As CEO of the Hoult Media empire, Julian will stop at nothing to get what he wants. So for his next venture with Manhattan’s most lecherous billionaires, he’s hired me to play the role of bait. And while my official title is that of Executive Assistant, my actual job requires low tops, tight skirts and flaunting everything I’ve got till his clients are easy to bend – till they can barely think for themselves anymore.
It’s sleazy and wrong. Against everything I’ve worked for. But with Julian as my audience, I can’t help but enjoy every second. Thanks to him, I’m embracing the bad, and I swear…

I’ve never in my life felt this damned good.

Bad Boss is about Julian and Sara. They’re the best friends of Lukas and Lia from Sweet Spot. They’ve never really met and during an event, they can’t keep their hands off each other which leads to them having an almost one-night stand. Figuring they’ll never see each other again, they are both surprised to realize that their meeting was inevitable.

Julian is very no-nonsense. A self-made billionaire, he doesn’t do relationships because he’s too busy overseeing his empire. But he can’t keep his eyes or his mind off of Sara. Neither can his potential clients. Sara’s just been fired/quit from the only job she’s ever had and for the first time is at a loss with what to do with herself. Knowing that she could help smooth things over with his potential clients with a bit of flirting and some light sexual harassment, Julian offers her a job as his personal assistant until he can negotiate a deal. She agrees because she wants more of Julian but then he tells her that he has a strict no-fraternization policy. Bummer. Too bad he’s having trouble adhering to his own rules.

Once again, Stella Rhys treated us to a painful truth about her hero. The trials Julian went through only made him a better character to read and, in a strange way, humanized him. There was a lot of intense back-and-forth between these characters and their chemistry was off-the-charts hot. When it finally came to the climax of the story, although it was a tad predictable, it was nevertheless very entertaining.

I’m hoping there will be a third book added to this series because I’d love to see the easy-going, happy-go-lucky Emmett finally meets his match. I’ve gotta say, this author has found a way to make her heroes truly irresistible.
