Review: Kept by the Boss: A Bossy/Protective InstaLove Romance by Sasha Gold




Published Sept. 2019

Jenna doesn’t know I protect her, but I do. Every night, I watch over her.

She’s my niece’s best friend, my employee, my obsession. A single photograph, of a girl barely 21 years old, changed my life.


She’s a musician, not a bartender. She should be performing, not serving. I know she’s better off without me, a scarred beast, so I keep my distance, and make sure she’s safe until she goes back to her other life.


Until the night a brawl breaks out, and my girl’s in danger. All my good intentions fall away. No one will hurt her. After the chaos, she ends up safe in my cabin, deep in the Alaskan wilderness. I tell myself I can resist my sweet obsession while I protect her.


But all it takes is one, single forbidden touch…


May be spoilers:

Kept by the Boss has 16 chapters with an epilogue and is about Harrison and Jenna.

Jenna works with her friend at her uncle Harrison’s bar. Jenna hasn’t met Harrison in person, but she gets little notes that she hopes are from him.

Harrison has fallen quickly for her through a picture. He’s been looking out for her, even though she doesn’t know it. He’s kept his distance because he thinks he’s too old for her and he’s scarred.

Things change when there is a brawl in the bar. She’s sent to stay at his cabin.

It does take until chapter 8 before they actually speak in person and chapter 15 before they even kiss. So, it was very, very slow for me.

She’s a virgin and he’s been celibate for years. Steamy scene was pretty good, but I wish they had gotten together way sooner. Still a good read though.

Little drama with the brawl at the bar and then the poacher for a minute.

No ow/om drama, no cheating, no separations.

Epilogue is 2 years out. They are happily married with a son and pregnant. I gave it 🌟🌟🌟 ½ Thanks for reading.
