Overview

He always gets his way…until he meets his match.

“I need you back. Now.”
—William Walker

I can’t believe I’m letting my ex-boss talk me into working for him again. He’s arrogant. Domineering. He gets under my skin in ways I don’t want to admit. When I quit, it felt great! But now, seeing the big, bad billionaire rendered helpless by a baby, I give in to his demand. And I’m worried it won’t be the last time…
—India Crowley

While this is the second book in a series by Kathy Evans, I read it as a stand alone. William Walker is an enigma. He is a genius, a billionaire who built Walker Industries, one of the biggest online-game companies in the country; he is a workaholic, but has no social skills, behaves like a bully and to me seems to suffer from Aspergers Syndrome (but that was never mentioned in the book). India is his assistant, who hates her boss because of the way he treats her and everyone else, yet she also pushes his buttons, and he allows her to get away with it, because she is so efficient and no one else would put up with him. Why does she? Because she gets paid very well, so she can support herself while she writes her novel. Secretly, they are really attracted to each other, but don't know how to express it. When she gets an offer for freelance writing, she quits, and then feels guilty about it. William on the other hand, is bewildered as to why she quit. Then his brother, needs him to babysit his niece, and when he can't cope, the only one who he can think of to call is India. He makes her an offer she can't refuse and they get to see another side of each other. While India has no problem with little Rosie, can she tame William? Interesting characters, easy banter and an odd plot, make this a fun read. I read a free ARC from NetGally.com and this is my unbiased and voluntary review.

William is just an unhappy grumpy pain in the backside! I would have served him his morning coffee lap side! India has suffered enough stress working under him. There are plenty of jobs for a woman with her skill where she will not develop ulcers. But we all know how Fate works she has her own plans and usually, they do not match with our own William's world is turned upside down and he finds himself needing India's assistance - Can he get her to agree to help him? Will they survive working together in such close quarters? I have to admit it was fun to watch William come down a peg or two. William and India were like oil and water - Every time they entered the others orbit they just couldn't find a way to coexist. You could feel the tension radiating off the pages. But eventually, they found a common ground I read a comp copy #BigShot #NetGalley

What a great office romance this proved to be! He has a reputation for being a mean, arrogant boss and she's his PA - until he makes one comment too many and she quits. He then ends up looking after his baby niece and is desperate for India to help him again. She eventually agrees - but only after negotiating herself a great deal . . . or is it such a great deal when seeing him with the baby has her dreaming? This is a fun read with an arrogant boss being brought down to earth dramatically by both having to deal with a baby and acknowledging his feelings for his PA. The attraction between the two is irresistible, especially as they work based in his home instead of his office. Looking after the baby is just the trigger for a fun romance where reality just has to be faced up to for them to have their HEA. I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.

3.5 stars--BIG SHOT is the second instalment in Katy Evan’s contemporary, adult, erotic, romance series. This is billionaire businessman William Walker, and his PA India Crowley’s story line. Told from dual first person perspectives (William and India) BIG SHOT follows the acrimonious professional relationship between billionaire businessman William Walker, and his PA India Crowley. India is tired of William’s attitude in the office, and decides it’s time to hand her resignation. As William’s personal assistant India finds herself on the receiving end of William’s bad attitude and emotional outbursts more times than she can handle. But days into her self-imposed unemployment Williams offers India a deal she cannot refuse as he struggles with looking after his four month old niece. What ensues is the building relationship and romance between William and India, and the potential fall-out as their time together comes to an end. William Walker doesn’t do office romances but he struggles with his attraction to her PA India Crowley, an attraction that manifests as cold, emotional distant and mean. When his brother and sister in law need time to themselves, William finds himself looking after his four month old niece, and is desperate enough to beg India for her return. India Crowley has dreamed about becoming a writer, and with her lack of employment India begins freelance working for online blogs. A call from William pulls India back into the orbit of the man that pushes all of her buttons, buttons that are about to be pushed over again. The relationship between William and India is a forbidden office romance; an enemies to lovers partnership that comes with an expiry date unless someone steps up and reveals their true feelings. The sex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. We are reintroduced to William’s brother Kit and Alex ( Boss #1), their daughter Rosie, as well as their father Alistair, and India’s roommate and best friend Montana. BIG SHOT is a story of family, relationships, and workaholic. The premise is entertaining; the romance is hot and steamy; the characters are energetic and charismatic but I had hoped for a little more back ground information about both of the characters.

I first read about William in BOSS, and I was curious about him. Now I'm just in love with him. This story about William and India was funny and sexy. The beginning of their story is a little bit like Kit and Alex story, with the animosity and the enemies-to-lovers vibe, but at the same time it wasn't the same, because Will and Indy's personalities are different, and also the situations were different. I had a lot of fun reading BIT SHOT. It was a quick read, with its sweet and romantic moments, and the ocasional cameo of the previous characters. Will is a nasty boss, but he's also a lovely character. India is baddass! Strong, smart and witty, I loved her! Also, her friend Montana was so cool I want her as my friend too. I really really liked this book. I think I've developed "a thing" for sexy millionaire bosses and quick-and-fun office romances.

BIG SHOT by Katy Evans is a short, fast-paced read that takes place in the Windy City. It is a workplace romance between CEO William Walker and his assistant, India Crowley. They have been working together for years with William treating India like a doormat most of the time. Despite that, India is a strong woman and knows how to push William's buttons. They both work very hard, however, William is a workaholic. India spends her free time writing her novel and knows that one day she will be able to pursue her passion for writing professionally. There has always been an underlying attraction between the two. Luckily for India, she receives a job offer and is able to quit both her job and William. Naturally William is shocked, however, he has no choice but to accept her resignation. A few days later, William is saddled with watching his infant niece for two weeks. As a result, he asks India to come back for the short-term, in order to keep his business in order while he takes care of his niece. India agrees, after negotiating a rate of three times her former salary. Working from William's home brings them closer together, and they truly get to know each other, both in and out of the bedroom. This was a cute story and I loved the way William took care of his niece. Babies have a tendency to break down barriers, and William's ability to be a loving uncle improved with each day. Connecting with India was a bit difficult because I found her to be cold and a bit calculating. Their sexy times were hot and sexy. Overall, a solid romantic read. LJT, Romance Junkies, 3.5 Hearts

A big thank you to NetGalley and Harlequin Desire for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. A very convoluted but basically assistant falls in love a boss. India quits because William is cold and grumpy but.he talks her into helping him out when he ends up babysitting his niece. William is a smart challenges guy with odd hangups but basically an ok guy. I didn't really get the.chemistry but it reads ok. I rate this a 3.

I really wanted to get to Will's story after reading Boss. Will is such grumpy cat. You just know the hero will be so demanding in bed when they are so curt in the office, taking command of all situations. India was a pretty confident woman as well, and her despising Will for his rude, bossy behavior just made their chemistry. What I found very interesting is that Will was confident in the office, but very withdrawn in love. India was very withdrawn in the office but confident in love. It took their differences and one strong willed baby niece to pull them together. Good follow-up romance to Kit and Alex's story.

BIG SHOT is a light-hearted, guilty-pleasure read that can easily be digested in a sitting. India works for William as his assistant. William has cultivated an air as a heartless and cruel boss over time, calling her at all hours and never sparing any praise. When India gets a new job offer and William lays into her about being late again, she is all too happy to quit. William is left reeling, as he has come to rely on her over time. When his life becomes more difficult (due to having to care for his infant niece), he is willing to do whatever it takes to get India back. However, as they begin to work together again, they are both noticing other qualities that make them each very attractive to the other. This is a pretty steamy romance. Although William is billed as the one who is impossible/difficult to work with, India really felt like the mean one here (with the backstory only described). Their chemistry is off the charts though, and while the boss/assistant angle could feel like a trope, the fact that she had quit and no longer needs the job allows it to work more smoothly here. The addition of the impossible baby is just some added fun. Recommend for people looking for a quick, easy, and light romance read. Please note that I received an ARC from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

Outstanding! I absolutely love Harlequin books. Mix in Katy Evans with her ability to craft attention grabbing characters; well, the book will be destined to be a top notch read. I loved the pacing, humor and simplicity of their romance. The weariness and uncertainty in William. The desire and breaking down of India’s walls. All of it combined made this a winner for me! An epic Harlequin read!
