Book: Bad For The Boss
Series: Just For Him #1
Author: Talia Hibbert
Main characters: Jennifer Johnson, social media expert, trying to advance her career. Theo Chamberlain, head of the company and completely bowled over by Jennifer.
Plot: Jennifer Johnson has always been a good girl. She’s scored a promising role at a successful company and she’s determined to do well and keep her head down. Doing well however, does not involve lusting after the big boss.
Theo Chamberlain is master of everything he surveys and likes it that way. When he sets eyes on Jennifer, he doesn’t expect to feel so much, so quickly. His urge to simply get to know her transforms to that of protector when Jennifer becomes the target of an unknown enemy. He’ll keep her safe. Or die trying…
Why you should read it: This was a surprise of a book. It starts off as a simple office romance, but it’s packed with intrigue, secrets and suspense. I really enjoyed the chemistry between Jennifer and Theo – older men are hot, but I also enjoyed his character. He wasn’t afraid to show Jennifer who he was. The scene where he helps her with her hair is so touching – if only a guy like that actually existed!
What you may struggle with: Not much. It’s a very English story but a universal one I think – with some Caribbean patois thrown in – so you may not ‘get’ every reference, but the story is a strong one and so action-packed and I doubt it’ll slow your enjoyment.
Rating: 4/5 for a sexy and absorbing tale.
