Taming Rourke (Devereaux Billionaires, #4) by Mallory Crowe

Cali thought the handsome stranger who kissed her was nothing but a mistake. But it turns out he could be the biggest payday of her life.

Cali has spent the last year of her life bending over backwards for the Devereaux brothers and she's had enough. But when she threatens to quit, she's given an offer she can't refuse: If she brings the third, estranged, Devereaux brother, Rourke, back to the family, she'll get a two million dollar reward.

Rourke Devereaux vowed he'd never have anything to do with his family again, but it's hard to remember that vow when the sexy blonde he never thought he'd see again comes knocking on his doorstep. Even after he hauls her over his shoulder to carry her back to the car, she's not ready to give up. 

But as the two draw battle lines in his small, Maine coastal town, her old enemies pay them a visit. Now the one woman Rourke wanted to leave is under his protection and the longer he's with her, the more he realizes he doesn't want her going anywhere.

4.50 Hunky Stars Another Devereaux brother (fanning oneself.) I love Mallory Crowe's 'Billionaire in the City' series. I eagerly awaited each new release and I have never been disappointed. In this book we focus on the illusive Rourke Devereaux who years ago, after a tragedy and heartbreak, vowed to never again have anything to do with his family. He is gorgeous, wealthy and a loner who has kept himself hidden in a small Maine coastal town. Our heroine is the beautiful blonde Cali who has her life-plan and future all mapped out. She works for the Devereaux Brothers and has for years. While at the ball she is devastated to find out her boyfriend is wanted by the FBI and has been using her to get information on the Devereauxs and their business. She leaves the ballroom, calls a cab and quickly heads for the exit. On her way out she runs into a gorgeous stranger and they are immediately drawn to one another. They chat a bit while she waits for her ride. He kisses her an it knocks both their socks off. She has had enough of being overlooked for promotions at work even though she earns a great salary. She is fed up as she has bent over backwards for Luke and Michael. When she tells them she's resigning they make her an offer she can't refuse. Bring their estranged brother home to them and collect 2 million dollars. That's a deal she can't refuse. This is a great read and the character development is right on the money. It is well-paced with the story unfolding and propelling forward without stalling. I was so intrigued I read it in one sitting. Just couldn't put it down. I received this ARC in return for an honest review.

Great story... great characters! Here we have book 7 for this series! It can be a standalone story, but I have been enjoying how things unfold book after book... We see Cali and the stranger she kisses... turns out to be Rourke Devereaux. His brothers have been reaching out to him, but there is a lot of pain between them, and he won't let it go. Will Cali be able to convince him to hear his brothers out? A deeper look into their lives and who they are, brings Cali and Rourke to life. I loved how these two were around each other! Great chemistry! Very entertaining scenes! A bit of danger... a man's protective instinct coming out... romance and intrigue... a great story page after page! I really enjoy books that leave me with a smile on my face and this one does big-time! *copy given in exchange for an honest review.

TAMING THE BOSS is the seventh installment in Mallory Crowe’s contemporary, adult BILLIONAIRES IN THE CITY romantic, suspense series. This is billionaire Rourke Devereaux, and PA Cali Carson’s story line. Taming the Boss can be read as a stand alone but for cohesion and backstory I recommend reading the series in order as the story lines are interconnected and a number of the characters cross over between installments. Told from dual third person perspectives (Cali and Rourke) TAMING THE BOSS focuses on Cali-Luke Devereaux’s former personal assistant (whom we have met throughout the series)- and a woman wanted for questioning as to her involvement with a man named Easson Harper –a man hoping to destroy the Devereaux family. Cali was tired of playing the corporate monkey and decided it was time to walk away but found herself in the arms of the Devereaux prodigal son. Enter Rourke Devereaux, a man estranged from his family, and the man Cali will be tasked with bringing back into the Devereaux fold when they make her an offer she cannot refuse. Rourke Devereaux has been estranged from his family for close to ten years and with it comes heartbreak and betrayal, and the loss of the family he once loved. Now a man who restores older homes, Rourke finds himself immediately attracted to his brother’s PA-the woman sent to bring Rourke home. The relationship is one of insta-lust to love although there is plenty of push and pull between our leading couple especially as it pertains to Cali’s safety-someone is hunting Cali, and the FBI is having a difficult time tracking him down. The $ex scenes are intimate and seductive without the use of over the top graphic language or text. Most of the Devereaux siblings play secondary and supporting roles including Luke and his significant other Evelyn Price; Michael and his fiancé Lori Briggs; Emma Devereaux and Jace (by way of mention). We are introduced to billionaire Walter Farrell, and his right hand man Colin Carter. Colin’s story line will be told in RUTHLESS-the first installment in Mallory’s new spin off series Fractured Farrells-A Damaged Billionaire Series-as Colin goes in search of something he believes he is owed. TAMING THE BOSS is an entertaining and spirited story line with a little bit of mystery, suspense, romance and love. The premise is intriguing; the characters are energetic; the romance is a quick build to a happily ever after.
