5 Smooches

 a4-3 a4 a4-5 a4-4 a4-3



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.


On the heels of two very dark and highly emotional books, the workplace romance, Tempt the Boss, is a breath of fresh air for Madison’s readers. While she definitely does darkly, emotional and gripping stories well, I think her romantic comedies are my preference from this author.

Tempt the Boss was uproariously, laugh-out-loud funny, with slap-stick style humor, terrific back-and-forth banter and some workplace antics that were so ridiculously inappropriate that you just couldn’t help but laugh. There were some emotional moments between Austin and Lauren, and she was coming off a very painful divorce following her husband’s infidelity. But it was the unmistakable, unavoidable chemistry between them that really exploded off the page. When they gave into that attraction, they sizzled.

I enjoyed this book very much. I laughed, I smiled, I swooned and I fanned myself. I love romantic comedies, and Natasha Madison’s Tempt the Boss is a great one. Five smooches from me!
