Going back to work was supposed to be a painless transition, but when my new boss turns out to be an arrogant, cocky jerk, he quickly turns my professional life into a world of torture. Okay, fine, calling him an asshat before knowing he was my boss wasn’t my finest moment. Hating him should be easy. I just never counted on him being so gorgeous or charming when he’s not annoying me.
I expected my new assistant to be professional and punctual, but all I’m getting are dirty looks and rude comments. I should fire the little hellion, but instead all I can think about is bending her over my desk and breaking every rule I’ve ever made for myself.
One look. One touch. One night. If we break the rules, our lives will never be the same again.
Good thing rules were made to be broken. And besides, it feels so good to Tempt the Boss.
OMG!! This book was both hilarious AND hot!! I have read many office romances but ‘Tempt the Boss’ is one of my favorites. Modern, sexy, and very funny, Natasha Madison is an author to watch! I loved Lauren and Austin’s sexy, witty, sarcastic banter. This book was pure FUN and a fantastic escapist read.
Lauren has to re-enter the workforce after the sudden break-up of her marriage. Enter her beast of a boss, who can’t seem to keep an assistant for more than a few days at a time. Difficult, demanding and sarcastic, Austin is just plain horrible!!
“When I ask you to get me coffee, I’m not asking you to join me for a cup. When I tell you to scan and email something, I don’t need reporting of the task as if you’re waiting for a sticker on your paper. When you have a caller on hold, I don’t need you announcing them to me through the intercom in a singsong voice. I also don’t need you knocking on my door every few minutes to ask me if I need anything. Trust me, when I need something, you’ll be the first one to know.”
Lauren holds her own, though, and refuses to quit. She’s smart, tough and gets even with Austin for his outrageous behavior. Let the games commence! Once these two start playing pranks on each other, hilarity ensues. This story is funny, fast-paced, H-A-W-T but has lots of heart and sweetness underneath all the wit. Once these two get together, watch out!!
“I can only be a gentleman for so long, baby,” I whisper roughly in her ear and then roll the lobe between my lips. Her head falls back, hitting the wall.
BUT…Austin lives by his own set of rules and one of them is that he never, ever dates anyone from his office. Even though he and Lauren have an undeniable connection, he wants to her to quit so that they can continue to see each other. Lauren refuses to give in, even when Austin makes it almost impossible for to stay!
“He wants me to quit. Well, fuck that! I’m going to make him regret he made this stupid rule, even if I give myself blue balls, or a blue vagina, or whatever.”
This the first book I have read by Natasha Madison and I loved it! She has a gift for writing sexy banter and I absolutely loved the way Lauren held her own as a single mom. Her children are an integral part of this story and the ending was perfect for these two characters. This story had heat, heart and tons of sexy times. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Austin’s point of view was PERFECT. If you’re a fan of Emma Chase, you will LOVE Natasha Madison!
“Not just her body, though her body is meant to be worshipped, but her head, her heart. I want it all.”
