My Thoughts: You'd think that an allegedly hot story like this would be, I don't know, more interesting? And it started off really well too. I mean, I was like, ooh, this is good, but then... it just flopped. The biggest issue with it is that it just dragged and got nowhere. Trish and Keith in the beginning, there was a connection there. But their story just didn't feel like it was going anywhere at all and I just couldn't get into it. I ended up skimming and skimming until I could find something that was leading somewhere, something for me to root for and hold onto. I just wasn't finding it. In Bed With the Boss had me drawn in, at first. I'll give Alexa Bravo that, because it was well done. But maybe if there wasn't this back and forth of 'should we, shouldn't we' commentary even though they clearly want to. It's like my god stop dawdling around and get together please! I mean, just gimme something to sit at the edge of my seat for. My Rating: It's Okay
A romance that will make you make you learn to never, ever make eye connect in an elevator/lift again! Trish Carter is a divorcee, who had an ex that condemned her worthless in all things womanly, & has thrown herself into her job. She earned herself the #1 Rehab Manager of the Donnelli-Smith company & is invited to the corporate conference to talk about her plan to increase growth. Keith Donnelli was involved in a car crash that devastated his life, killed his manipulating, unwanted fiancée & unborn child & left him crippled in a Swiss Alps hospital. His company is ironically a rehab business, so he was rehabbed & counseled to death & an almost at 100%, except no libido. His company is on the brink of bankruptcy due to his absence, so this corporate conference will allow his board to see him, regain his sterling reputation & meet the employee with the plan to save his company. At the corporate conference, Trish is excited for the chance to show her plan & Keith is hoping to remove all the pressure off his partner's crumbling shoulders, but plans never, ever work. So when the lifts doors open, both Trish & Keith's eyes meet & a web of powerful LUST causes them a waken, earth shaking, non touching & standing orgasms, but they shallow their mutual moans, as the lift slowing empties. They are pulled together by unseen strings, devouring kisses explode between them, the lift's hold button is pushed, he picks her up & slams her against the wall, she releases his very 1st & very welcomed erection, in over a year, he pulls her undies aside & shoves them into mutual heaven & hell. After an uncomfortable clean up, the lift's doors are opened & they are introduced as boss & employee. Their hell gets hotter, as they must take a forced 2 week long business trip with a private plane, connecting rooms, shared cars, meeting & dinners, but they can't be in the same room without attacking one another. All Trish feels is instant "I must have him now" & insulted that business is always his #1 & all Keith feels is insane jealousy, an erection that won't stop & absolutely no understanding for this gorgeous & madden woman. Is there hope & maybe love on their horizon? Can they keep their clothes on long enough to actually COMMUNICATE? Will they allow their pasts to overshadow their futures? Is there a growing bun in Trish's oven? This is my 1st Ms. Bravo read & her knowledge of the corporate world flows through this romance. Trish is a woman who feels less all things unwomanly due to crappy ex, who did an amazing job crushing her self esteem under his shoe. Keith was deeply scarred emotionally by his evil, vain, gold digging & self center forced fiancée & if she wasn't dead, I would find her & beotch slap her out of my universe. The corporate world is not in my personal wheelhouse & the Corporate attitude that individual feelings are always overshadowed by business is unnatural to me, so this story's true core was not something I could relate, too. Ms. Bravo did hit a grand slam with understanding that good romance read need steaminess, so I applaud her many creative PANTIES DROPPING & yummy naughtiness between these 2 characters. For me, this read had really great misbehaving scenes, characters rethinking their priorities & emotional discoveries, but the corporate world is confusing to me, so it didn't tickle my fancy. Ms. Bravo gets a score of 2 fingers up & 4 toes for this NAUGHTINESS galore Corporate driven romance. NetGalley ARC given for my honest review.
