Kellan James is unwinding at Score when he spots the last person he’d ever expect to find in his favorite bar. Sara Connelly—ER nurse, do-gooder, charitable crusader, and frequent pain in his ass. Both grew up privileged in swanky Southampton, but that’s where the similarities end. Kellan’s made it his mission to seek out life’s pleasures; Sara gains pleasure from lecturing him on his lifestyle. Kellan would never date someone like her. Ever.
But when Kellan discovers Sara’s been stood-up by an online date, something fierce and protective awakens inside of him. Typically, Kellan would enjoy teasing the jilted Sara, but something in her face sends him over to her table with a plan. He encourages her to take a walk on the wild side, one weekend of sin, no holds barred.
She accepts, but it quickly becomes apparent that one night isn’t enough. As the pull between them grows stronger, Kellan discovers it’s a very dangerous thing to say never.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Seducing the Boss was a hot and surprisingly sweet little gem. While I think the title is not at all fitting, the story I found entertaining and engaging. Sara and Kellan work at the same hospital, while she is an ER nurse Kellan is the CEO so it could be argued that he is, technically, her boss. They’ve grown up next to each other, and though they’ve never been BFFs they have a close bond and are in each other’s lives constantly.
A clear friends-to-lovers storyline, Kellan’s eyes are suddenly opened to all that is Sara when she gets stood up by an online date. Set on erasing the sad look on her face he propositions her: one night to try all the kinky things she’d like to do… only when the list gets too long their night of passion becomes a whole weekend.
Kellan was a hunky, sweet, charming and funny commitment-phobe. An occurrence in his past had left him wary of marriage and anything long-term that could lead there, so he kept all his hook-ups light and easy. One night with Sara, though, starts a ripple effect in his soul that he doesn’t quite know how to handle. Did I mention he was hot, sexy and really knew how to handle himself in the bedroom? Must have slipped my mind… but he was totally and completely yummy.
Sara was dedicated, caring and took no bs from Kellan. Being witness to the string of women passing through his bedroom, she had never allowed herself to see him as more than “just my friend Kellan”. Except now she’s had the best sex of her life she can’t stop her feelings from becoming involved, especially when everything seems so effortless and right with him. Kellan’s issues are the only thing getting in the way of their chance at happily ever after, but it’ll take all of Sara’s strength to be the woman to help him realize forever doesn’t have to be a bad thing.
With a great pace, perfect balance between sexy hotness and sweet romance, the silly banter that had me smiling like a goof was just the cherry on top. I enjoyed the crap out of reading Seducing the Boss.
