Release Date: July 11, 2022
The first time I met Merrick Crawford was during my job interview.
Well, technically, I’d met him twenty minutes earlier when he’d barged into a fitting room a few doors down from my appointment.
I yelled. He yelled. After an argument while standing in my bra, I proceeded to smash the door into the gorgeous jerk, trying to yank it shut.
As you might imagine, I was freaked out when I discovered that the rude guy was my potential new boss.
Yet he didn’t seem to recognize me. Or so I thought… Until we wound up bickering again during my interview and he told me to go sniff my armpit.
Okay, so maybe I hadn’t exactly been changing when he walked in on me. In my defense, I’d been stuck on a hot train for two hours and wanted to make sure I didn’t smell.
I obviously didn’t expect to get the job. But somehow an invitation to a second interview arrived in my inbox.
Before I left, I asked to see Merrick. I needed to know why I was even in consideration after our disastrous start.
Turned out, Merrick only wanted to hire me because I was the least competent candidate. It seemed his board was making him fill the position, against his wishes.
I didn’t really want to work in a place where my boss expected me to fail. But I figured maybe I’d enjoy proving him wrong. It was a little thing I dubbed the boss project.
What I wasn’t prepared for was that there would be other things I’d enjoy doing to Merrick Crawford.
Getting involved with the boss wasn’t the smartest choice.
But you know what they say about choices: Some we regret, some we are proud of. I just had no idea where this one was going to land.
I really feel like a broken but in the BEST way record when I write reviews by this author. I honestly love every single book she’s put out in this bookish loving world for us readers! I adored both Evie and Merrick so,so much! And Kitty, Kitty is a woman that I could only wish was my grandma, oh the fun we would have getting into to trouble. She was a fiesty, fiery lady that loved with her whole being and really brought this book full circle.
The Boss Project was certainly a slower burner but not a slow feel while reading. It had everything you want and expect when picking up one of Keeland’s books. Evie and Merrick both struggled letting go and letting themselves fall into one another because of their pasts. Their chemistry was undeniable from the get go and watching them both open up through the book just warmed my heart. They may have been nudged along the way a bit by a certain fun lovin lady. As always it wasn’t an easy, smooth paved road for either them with lots of bumps along their ride but oh what a sweet ride it was. Their initial meeting may have gone completely “Cherry Pittin” wrong, but the ending was Oh So Right! Another Vi Keeland favorite for me and one of my top sizzlin’ summer reads!
