Release Date: July 11, 2022
The first time I met Merrick Crawford was during my job interview.
Well, technically, I’d met him twenty minutes earlier when he’d barged into a fitting room a few doors down from my appointment.
I yelled. He yelled. After an argument while standing in my bra, I proceeded to smash the door into the gorgeous jerk, trying to yank it shut.
As you might imagine, I was freaked out when I discovered that the rude guy was my potential new boss.
Yet he didn’t seem to recognize me. Or so I thought… Until we wound up bickering again during my interview and he told me to go sniff my armpit.
Okay, so maybe I hadn’t exactly been changing when he walked in on me. In my defense, I’d been stuck on a hot train for two hours and wanted to make sure I didn’t smell.
I obviously didn’t expect to get the job. But somehow an invitation to a second interview arrived in my inbox.
Before I left, I asked to see Merrick. I needed to know why I was even in consideration after our disastrous start.
Turned out, Merrick only wanted to hire me because I was the least competent candidate. It seemed his board was making him fill the position, against his wishes.
I didn’t really want to work in a place where my boss expected me to fail. But I figured maybe I’d enjoy proving him wrong. It was a little thing I dubbed the boss project.
What I wasn’t prepared for was that there would be other things I’d enjoy doing to Merrick Crawford.
Getting involved with the boss wasn’t the smartest choice.
But you know what they say about choices: Some we regret, some we are proud of. I just had no idea where this one was going to land.
True to Vi Keeland’s style, The Boss Project is another gorgeous office romance full of hilarious banters, sexy times and a little touch of emotional feels. Devoured this baby in one night. The first time Evie and Merrick met was already a disaster – Evie was caught in a male dressing room sniffing her own pits and freaked out on a certain male that innocently barged into the correct dressing room J Soon after Evie found out said handsome stranger is about to be her new boss. Merrick is not interested in hiring a therapist to help his employees destress (he thinks it a waste of money and time). Evie’s resume was not that stellar, and after the first unfortunate run-in Merrick is not impressed. Merrick is hell bend on hiring Evie aka the underqualified therapist just to spite the company’s demand. Well … let’s just say his plan back fired. Not only Evie managed to win the employees over, she began to wiggled her way into his heart. I love Merrick and Evie together even during the slow burn chase. Their chemistry is undeniable – love all the flirting and banters. Evie is attracted to her boss but she wants to keep her job professional. Merrick is relentless. Smart man for a reason – he found a loophole and eventually broke down Evie’s armor. Of course all romance has a bit of up and down. Love is pain right? At one point I want to kick Merrick in the behind but thankfully he redeemed himself. The sweet HEA ending made it all worth it. Over all, this was such an entertaining read – adorable, lighthearted, sexy and just a feel good romance.
