MISADVENTURES WITH THE BOSS
Misadventures with the Boss by Kendall Ryan is a standalone story in the Misadventures series. Piper Daniels is new to NYC and her sister is insisting that she get out of her apartment and meet people. So insistent in fact that she sets up a profile for her on a dating app and gets Piper a date with someone looking to hook up. Piper decides to actually go on the date and Jackson, the super hot and in charge guy, who she meets gives her a night of passion that she will never forget. The only problem is that in the elevator for her first day of a new job she sees Jackson again and soon learns that he is Jackson Dane. a.k.a. Mr. Dane. The CEO. Her new boss.
Jackson can’t get his hot date out of his mind and when she ends up being his assistant it provides extra torture. Once he devises a plan to get what he wants, and he always gets what he wants, he and Piper have a, mostly, professional relationship at work, and a raucously intimate one in every other moment, but as things go this casual hook up becomes more than just that as they work together and sleep together.
I enjoyed how each character grew the more they spent time with the other. This was a fast read, but it works because the characters are intelligent and driven and able to adapt and overcome their initial issues. When they run into problems it is because they genuinely care for the other and want to do what’s right, even if it hurts them. I enjoyed the interactions between Piper and Jackson and seeing their relationship become more.
Overall, I recommend Misadventures with the Boss by Kendall Ryan as a fast, hot, sensual, romance novel. This one night stand, to work place hookup, to happily every after was fun, intelligent and passionate.
