Book Tour: Bossman by Vi Keeland


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?

Review by Lisa Kane

If I was NASA's next choice to go up in space, they would have to hold up that launch until I was finished reading a book if it was by Vi Keeland. This woman is incapable of writing a bad story. I swear, I always think she can't get any better and then her next one will blow me away. Bossman-no exception here! 

Reese Annelsey is on the date from hell. If her date brings up his mother and one of his bore ass stories about her one more time she's gonna scream. So she does what we've all done. She excuses herself and hides out to call her friend so she can come up with an "emergency" to get out of her date. Only she's overheard talking to her best friend by Chase Parker, who's there on a date himself. He calls her out on her plans. They bicker back and forth and Reese is god smacked by this gorgeous asshat. 

"It's the oldest trick in the book, the emergency phone call. The least you can do is put in a little more effort. It takes two months to get a reservation at this place, and it's not cheap, sweetheart." 
When she returns to her table waiting for her phone to ring, what does Chase do? He and his date just walk right on over to her table and he pretends to be her old friend from middle school. 

"I'm Chase Parker. Reese and I go way back."

"Martin Ward." My date nodded. 
"Martin, mind if we join you? It's been years since Buttercup and I have seen each other. I'd love to catch up. You don't mind, do you?"

Gotta love this guy's moves. 

Reese is enjoying the date way more since Chase interrupted it. He spins story after story about their phony childhood. She hates to see it end. 

Knowing nothing about him, she doubts she will see him again. In the mean time she needs to find a job. She's worked in marketing for years at the same cosmetic company, but made a stupid decision and slept with one of her co-workers. Turns out he got himself engaged a couple of days later and she can't work with that lying douche, especially as he is going to be her boss. So it's one dead end interview after another for the next few weeks. On the upside she's just met a nice guy. Bryant. He's cute, polite and treats her like a queen. Only she can't help but compare him to one gorgeous, bossy, snarky guy she met a month ago. 

In a twist of fate, Reese meets Chase again at Bryant's gym (ok, she may have tracked him down on Facebook and knows he trains there) He finds out she is looking for a job and hooks her up with an interview. Guess he forgot to mention it's his cosmetic company. Of course she ends up getting the job and that's when the story just gets juicier by the page. Chase was reluctant to hire her because he wants her and it's just not a good idea. 

"So we're good? I apologize, you accept? You're going to kick ass in the interview and get hired, then I'm going to try to get in your pants, and you're not going to let me."

Chase might be rich, brilliant and gorgeous but he has some heavy baggage. Reese is funny and dorky and fierce and she can hold her own. 

Reese is loving this working for this company and hasn't felt so excited about her job in years. She puts in a ton of hours and it's bringing out the best in her. 

"I find I'm more creative in the evening. Sometimes after I've climbed into bed and shut off the lights, an idea will come to me for something I was trying all day to focus on." 
"I'm very creative when I shut off the lights and slip into bed, too. Maybe we should try that together sometime? Probably produce some amazing results-twice as creative and all." 
I shook my head but smiled, amused. "You're an HR nightmare, aren't you?" 

But like any delicious story, the axe must fall and the angst must begin. Cue the ominous music... Both Reese and Chase face demons from their past. Real, horrible and debilitating ones. Hearts are gonna break, Jack Daniels is going to get guzzled and readers are going to hurt. God, I love a story that puts me through the wringer. Devour this one folks, cause it's a keeper!! 

"Sometimes you don't know what you're missing until you find it."

“Sorry, I wasn’t looking where—”
I froze.
The sight of Chase standing there was almost enough to knock me over. I’d secretly hoped to see him, yet never thought I actually would. What are the chances? I did a double take, sure I was seeing things. But it was him all right, in the flesh. And what flesh it is. Standing there shirtless and wet—wearing nothing but a pair of low-slung swim trunks—he had me stuttering. Literally.
“Ch…Ch…Ch—” I couldn’t get the word out.
Of course, Chase didn’t miss a beat. He smirked and leaned in. “You do a cute train impression, Buttercup.”
He remembers me.
I shook my head, attempting to snap myself out of it. But it was no use. He was so tall, and I was so short, I had no choice but to stare at his body. Water trickled down his abs. I was mesmerized watching it speed up and slow down as it crossed the rippled lines of his six-pack. Damn.
I cleared my throat and finally spoke. “Chase.”
I was pretty freaking proud of myself for getting that much out. He had a towel slung around his neck and lifted it to dry off his dripping hair, revealing even more flesh. His pectoral muscles were carved and perfect. And—oh, my God…is that… Holy shit. It is. His nipples were cold and erect, and one of them was….was…pierced.
