Liam Baxter is my new boss, and he’s not so bad. I mean, he does require that I knock before I walk into his office. And he doesn’t want me to bring my cat to work. Then he tells me if I don’t follow his rules, there will be discipline. On top of that, others say he’s cold and calculating. Hmm, maybe my boss is a little bit bad? But the more I work for him, the more things change. He shows me his true self in delicious glimpses. Perhaps underneath the stern, handsome boss, there’s a man who needs love even more than he needs an assistant.
Georgia Lavine is a means to an end for me. Her father’s business is one I intend to destroy. What better way to strike at a man than to take his daughter? That’s just what I did, hiring Georgia as my assistant to spite him and also to gain more leverage. But this acquisition isn’t without its pitfalls. Georgia is too sunny, too beautiful, too fun, too naïve, too everything-I’m-not. She treats everyone so kindly. So much so that I begin to find that I’m the only one who should get her smiles, her attention, and everything else she has to offer. After all, I’m her boss. And though the assistant position is temporary, I have a much more permanent one in mind.
MINK’s Note: This is a fun office romance that’s safe and gives you a sweet HEA. Curl up with your fave kitty and enjoy.
May be spoilers:
Beauty and the Boss has 18 chapters with an epilogue and is about Liam and Georgia.
Liam hires Georgia for revenge on her father. He must not have done his research because she doesn’t have much to do with him.
She’s so sweet and tries to be positive all the time, which I thought was cute.
They both are attracted right off the bat, but he is a little bit of a jerk in the beginning.
There is spanking/punishments, so if you don’t like that, just skip this one. I don’t mind it.
It definitely kept me smiling. He was so possessive, even though all he thinks about is using her.
She’s a virgin and it doesn’t ever say how long it’s been for him.
Lots of steam, lots of spanking.
It’s a good story. Kept my interest all the way through.
I have to say that I loved Georgia. She was a little immatureish? Is that a word? Anyways, I still loved her. She made me smile so much.
Liam, I loved him too. Even with him being a jerk and thinking that he was just using her, his actions spoke differently.
Blip of drama, but it was over quickly.
Great read. No cheating, no ow drama, just a couple blips of om, but no real drama, just a night separation.
Epilogue doesn’t say how long it’s been. But, it’s their wedding day. Really wish for a further out epilogue as I don’t call that a HEA. Still good though. I gave it 🌟🌟🌟 ½ . Thanks for reading.
