Are you ready to meet Chase Parker in BOSSMAN?
A standalone Contemporary Romance novel by
New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Vi Keeland
5 DELICIOUSLY DIRTY CROWNS
My love affair with Vi Keeland began late one night as I stumbled upon Throb, and it has only been strengthened with each novel I have read by her. I can always count on good characters, an interesting plot, and excellent writing, and Bossman did not disappoint.
I thoroughly enjoyed the main characters of this story, Chase and Reese. Our heroine is my favorite kind of leading lady. She knows what she is worth and isn’t afraid to ask for it. She has ethics and morals and spends a good deal of the story resisting the hero to follow these rules she has set up for them. I also love that although she is afraid due to incidents from her past, she doesn’t allow these past events to dictate her life in the present. She faces fear head on in relationships and life. The use of her relationship with her brother is an excellent literary tool used by Vi Keeland to develop Reese’s characterization. We get character motivation, background information, characteristics, and skills used to have some dirty conversations in a room full of people. Reese is simply charming. Chase is my favorite kind of hero. He is the perfect mix of cocky arrogance and sweetness, resulting in major charisma. I love the way he interacts with his employees, showcasing that while he is cocky about his personal life or looks, he respects others. He deeply cares for the people he loves as well, which is shown with his reaction to particular events in the story. Once you become a part of this man’s inner circle, he is protective and caring, all the best attributes in a hero. Finally, I love his dialogue. The confidence in his “relationship” with Reese is fantastic. His ability to weave tales is entertaining and will have the reader laughing. Plus, he is hot, physically and linguistically. Really, what is better?
The plot of Bossman I found to be incredibly engaging. Yes, this is an office romance, so it does follow the typical trope. The author, however, uses the past of the characters to create the conflict in the story, which allows the reader to get an office-romance with a unique twist. It completely fits with the characters, considering their past and how it has shaped who they are as people. The resolution of the story just solidified how much I love these two as a couple.
Vi Keeland has never disappointed, and Bossman has only helped to solidify my love of her writing and that this author is an automatic one-click author for me. If her name is on it, I will be buying it.
The first time I met Chase Parker, I didn’t exactly make a good impression.
I was hiding in the bathroom hallway of a restaurant, leaving a message for my best friend to save me from my awful date.
He overheard and told me I was a bitch, then proceeded to offer me some dating advice.
So I told him to mind his own damn business—his own tall, gorgeous, full-of-himself damn business—and went back to my miserable date.
When he walked by my table, he smirked, and I watched his arrogant, sexy ass walk back to his date.
I couldn’t help but sneak hidden glances at the condescending jerk on the other side of the room. Of course, he caught me on more than one occasion, and winked.
When the gorgeous stranger and his equally hot date suddenly appeared at our table, I thought he was going to rat me out.
But instead, he pretended we knew each other and joined us—telling elaborate, embarrassing stories about our fake childhood.
My date suddenly went from boring to bizarrely exciting.
When it was over and we parted ways, I thought about him more than I would ever admit, even though I knew I’d never see him again.
I mean, what were the chances I’d run into him again in a city with eight million people?
What were the chances a month later he’d wind up being my new sexy boss?

“Sorry, I wasn’t looking where—”
The sight of Chase standing there was almost enough to knock me over. I’d secretly hoped to see him, yet never thought I actually would. What are the chances? I did a double take, sure I was seeing things. But it was him all right, in the flesh. And what flesh it is. Standing there shirtless and wet—wearing nothing but a pair of low-slung swim trunks—he had me stuttering. Literally.
“Ch…Ch…Ch—” I couldn’t get the word out.
Of course, Chase didn’t miss a beat. He smirked and leaned in. “You do a cute train impression, Buttercup.”
He remembers me.
I shook my head, attempting to snap myself out of it. But it was no use. He was so tall, and I was so short, I had no choice but to stare at his body. Water trickled down his abs. I was mesmerized watching it speed up and slow down as it crossed the rippled lines of his six-pack. Damn.
I cleared my throat and finally spoke. “Chase.”
I was pretty freaking proud of myself for getting that much out. He had a towel slung around his neck and lifted it to dry off his dripping hair, revealing even more flesh. His pectoral muscles were carved and perfect. And—oh, my God…is that… Holy shit. It is. His nipples were cold and erect, and one of them was….was…pierced.
