Rivers Edge book 5
Release Date October 15th, 2015
Last man standing. That’s the way it feels when Will Stevens looks at the happiness and fulfillment his siblings have found. Will isn’t necessarily looking for “happily ever after” but…what if? The one thing that helps him get through the loneliness of bachelorhood is his job. As a paramedic with Rivers Edge Health Center, Will is dedicated to saving lives. But one person has the potential to jeopardize everything he has worked for: his boss.
Carmen Brady is a woman working in a man’s world. Determined to be taken as a serious professional, Carmen is hard and ruthless on the job; not interested in being anyone’s friend. There’s no room for personal relationships in the workplace, and Carmen is unwavering in her pursuit to run a tight ship in the Emergency Department at Rivers Edge Health Center. Yet, as much as she tries, Carmen can’t seem to stop thinking about one man she can’t have: her employee.
What happens when the line between work and personal is crossed? Can Will and Carmen keep the two worlds separated? Everything comes down to a single choice: love or career?
Boss Me is the final book in the Rivers Edge series and I knew going into it that I would love/hate this book and I was right. I LOVED everything about this book and HATED that it was the last book and that we are saying goodbye to the Rivers Edge family.
Will Stevens in the middle child. He is the healer of the family and this carries through to his professional life with the Rivers Edge ambulance crew. He wants what his siblings have but doesn’t see it in the horizon any time soon.
“Cruella. AKA Carmen Brady. AKA my bitch from hell boss.”
Carmen Brady is new to Rivers Edge. She moved here with her son after a divorce. She is the new hospital administrator at the Rivers Edge Health Center. She knows how she wants things done and she is not afraid to tell people. She’s not known for being soft and lovey.
Carmen and Will have an undeniable attraction to one another but there is the tiny fact that she is his boss that makes things just a little difficult. Add in a 12 year old that has no filter (honestly what 12 year old boy HAS a filter?), a meddling mom and sister (with nothing but the best intentions) and a sexual tension that could spark a fire in the rain forest and you have the makings of an AMAZING novel!
The short story at the end is a great tie up for the series and definitely had me in tears. I couldn’t have hoped for a better ending to this series!! Can’t wait to see what’s next from the amazing Lacey Black!
