Blog Tour, Excerpt, Review & Giveaway ~ Bossman by Vi Keeland

Are you ready to meet Chase Parker in BOSSMAN?
A standalone Contemporary Romance novel by 
New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Vi Keeland

Book Description:

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?

Then again…

What were the chances a month later he’d wind up being my new sexy boss?

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4.5 stars
***ARC received for an honest review***

“Fear does not stop death. It stops life.”

For me, Vi Keeland is one of those that authors that always delivers, whether it be solely penned or collaboration I can guarantee that I will get a read that makes my heart melt, my emotions run rampant and a smile that runs from ear to ear and Bossman is no different.

The banter and dialogue in this book is some of the best that I have read in a long, long time. From the time that these two characters first meet their chemistry is palpable and the ease with which they banter back and forth goes to show just how similar and well suited they were. They fed off each other, their senses of humour almost equal and their quick witted stories and comebacks were hilarious as well as a joy to read. In short and in essence these two just made sense.

“It did what I intended it to do – lightened the mood – but it also had desire fighting the voice of reason inside of me. And, at the moment, desire was kicking reason’s ass.”

Reese Annesley is not having the best of times, having resigned from her job, by necessity, she is floundering around trying to find something that best suits her and her talents. She is in marketing and having worked in her past job for seven years is a little out of touch with the job market. If job hunting wasn’t bad enough her man hunt had little luck either and finding herself on another dead end date she goes to the ladies to make the “rescue me” call.

Chase Parker overhears her desperate pleas on the phone and after rudely interrupting and telling Reese she was out of order she begins to explain just how much of a disaster this date is. Thinking no more of it she goes back to her table…much to her surprise, Chase calls her name from his table and introduces himself as a friend from way back and the rest is history. Who is Chase Parker?

From the minute Chase and Reese first meet you have that intense feeling, that feeling of knowing that something great is going to happen. The way these two fed off each other was a joy to read and really made this book for me. Chase is not your typical Billionaire business suit. He has the charm and swagger and a touch of cockiness, but he is just a normal man, with a fantastic sense of humour and a heart of gold. He was just one of your mates and all round good guy and one that will capture many reader’s hearts.

“Sweetheart, I know you. You didn’t put up that wall to keep him out. You put it up to watch him break it down to get to you.”

When these two bump into each other again it seems fate has other ideas and when Chase passes Reese’s details to a recruiter and she ends up working for him it seems the dating gods have these two firmly in their sights, however, Reese doesn’t mix business and pleasure as that is what led to her unemployment in the first place. Bossman better have game!

“Stop worrying. Harassment policy only applies to employees, not to the owner. Checked this morning.”

Vi Keeland though actually gives you a well-rounded story, not only based on their present and future but also their pasts. These two have a lot in common and while at times Vi Keeland pulls at every heart string and emotion she then proudly puts you together with another hilarious scene that will have you wondering why you were sad in the first place.

“I’m tired of looking back. It’s been a long time since I’ve wanted to live in the moment.”

This book has a touch of everything, everything I loved and everything I wanted to read. Another fantastic read from Vi Keeland.


“Sorry, I wasn’t looking where—”
I froze.
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.
