Bad Boss – Stella Rhys

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.

I would like to thank givemebooks promotions for sending me this earc as well as the author! It is very much appreciated! I signed up for the release and review of this arc because of the description it drawed me in and I was like well that sounds good! This review will be non-spoiler.

My favourite thing in this whole book was the characters the chemistry between Julian and Sara, I could like feel it from the book and that has never happened to me before so it was a nice surprise. The characters were so funny and the teasing that happened between them and when she went to work for him how they both tried to stick with his rule of not dating or sleeping with the employees of the companies he owns. I thought that rule was quite funny and I think we all knew that it would be broken between them. At first, they both believed it was the sex that drew them to each other but they slowly began to get to know each other and eventually fall in love. I loved how they teased each other sexually as well as normally. I also loved the tension between them both you could feel it off the page. When they did finally break that rule, it was funny seeing the confusion that they both felt and how they would deal with them breaking the rule. The fact they both felt the same was quite funny too!

The relationship building was fantastic I felt like it fit the pace of the story and didn’t take long or too slow, and the way it built was brilliant. Also, the way that they both Sara and Julian revealed stuff about their pasts the way it happened it really fitted them as characters. I really want to say something about that but I don’t want to spoil it, but once you discover Sara’s past, in particular, you understand a lot more of her and why she acts in certain ways.

I felt every bit of happiness, pain and sadness in this book, it was heart warmingly beautiful! I would love to go into way more detail about everything that happened in the book but it’s spoiler free! I really did enjoy it, I read it in one setting.
