REVIEW TOUR ~~~ My Hot Boss by Betty Shreffler

My Hot Boss

by Betty Shreffler

Contemporary Romance

Release Date: August 15, 2017 

From the moment I met Grayson Cole, I knew he was someone I wanted to let in my panties and maybe, even in my heart. One night, one sexy-as-sin kiss, and several drinks later, our incredible evening turns into a disaster and I’m apologising for the vomit spatter on his fancy, black shoes. I never thought I’d see him again after that, no matter how many nights I spent wishing I would. Until a month later, he waltzes into my office as—MY NEW, HOT BOSS. I’m so screwed. 

She was meant to be a fun f*ck. That’s all I wanted. That’s all I needed. But Emma Williams could never be just that for me. The quirky, brunette vixen challenges me at every opportunity. My desire to have her has me working for her affections, like I’ve never done before. What is this woman doing to me? Not only am I her Boss, but I don’t do feelings. There’s only one way I see this ending. I’m f*cked for sure.

4 out of 5 stars

There was nothing wrong with this in terms of writing but I just kept waiting for something to happen. It started well, looked like it would be a good rom-com but then just meandered around.

I couldn't get that Grayson actively pursued Emma, knowing she wanted commitment, then demanded exclusivity from her but didn't want to be in a long term or committed relationship with her. One minute he was 'you're mine' and the next he was 'well it won't last'.

No wonder neither Emma nor I were very sure if they even had a relationship. I get he feared commitment but he was so up and down I couldn't respect Grayson and struggle to like him. Thankfully Emma was a very likeable and natural feeling character and she kept me engaged in the book.

It wasn't a terrible read, I found it enjoyable and it was written and edited well. The story flowed easily and it didn't feel like a chore to read this book. It just didn't quite have that spark, for me, to turn it from a good to an outstanding book.

Betty Shreffler is a self-proclaimed nerd and nature enthusiast obsessed with folklore, photography, writing, reading, movies, board games, hiking, gardening and spending time with her husband and five fur babies. Not necessarily in that exact order though. During her outdoor adventures she's been face to face with an alligator, a bear and a coyote, making for some of the most memorable experiences of her life. She loves to capture and share the world's beauty through the lens of her beloved Nikon camera. Her work experience has been diverse from working as a Ranger for the National Park Service to management positions in Fortune 500 companies. She’s lived in four different states and moved homes twelve times. She received a BA in organizational management and minor in sociology, although her heart has always belonged to writing and photography. Growing up, she read romance or supernatural novels and jotted down poems and short stories to express her emotions and alleviate the characters' voices in her head. Not much has changed, only now her stories are lengthier and her characters more interesting.
