My Four Star Review:

This was a really great Sports Romance Anthology with three stories revolving around The Prestige Media Group.  Each story has a happily ever after, strong characters and fun romance.  They are the first stories I’ve read by these authors but I look forward to checking out more stories by these ladies.

I would highly recommend this anthology.

Offsides by Elise Faber

Job title:
Executive Assistant for CEO of Prestige Media Group

Job description:
(1) Deal with a massive amount of emails.
(2) Schedule conference calls and meetings with top athletes and other hugely important people.
(3) Pick up dry cleaning and food, consult on tie selection, make dinner reservations, and book flights . . . basically act as a wife-on-steroids.

Job performance:
Failing.
Absolutely failing at number four.

Off Guard by Stephanie Fournet

Life couldn’t be better for Charlie Woodruff.

After a year of holding out, she’s finally landed the job she’s always wanted in the city of her dreams. An apartment she can afford and new friends at work make the transition easy.
When she meets a gorgeous stranger who makes her laugh and steals her breath, it seems like the icing on the cake…

Until Charlie discovers he’s a client.

Hutch Barlow — newly drafted wide receiver for the Oakland Raiders — looks like an avenging angel, hangs on her every word, and is completely off-limits. The trouble is he also refuses to take “no” for an answer.

And if she’s being honest, Charlie doesn’t want him to.
But seeing him means she could lose everything — including her heart.

Off Limits by Kristin Vayden

Everything about Ava screams off limits.
To want her is to invite disaster.
To pursue her is to risk my job.
To kiss her might cost me my best friend.
But all those risks seem small in light of the first problem.
She hates me.

To her I’m a sell out, choosing to advance my career rather than protect my biggest client.
Her brother.
And my best friend.
She hasn’t spoken to me in over a year, but that ends now.
Because I’m done with holding back.
To hell with the consequences.
Wish me luck . . .

Bossed by Sloane Howell is a Sports Romance with a good dose of humor and extremely witty writing.  Bossed will release on March 28, 2017, and is intended for readers 18 years and older. bossed-sloane-howell

My FOUR Star Review:

I must confess, this is the first book I’ve read by Sloane Howell but it will definitely not be the last.  Bossed is the first in a standalone series with the second book Scored releasing on June 27, 2017.  Bossed is written in the first person but each chapter is written from one of the main character’s point of view which I love.

Bossed consisted of basically two main characters, Jenny Jackson and Ethan Mason but there are some secondary characters I loved as well and I’m looking forward to reading their story.

I absolutely love a strong female character and Jenny fit the bill.  From the moment I met her, I adored her and just knew that every interaction she had with Ethan going forward was going to be awesome.  At times Ethan’s inner monologue was so funny, I was laughing out loud.

This story is not just and office romance.  Yes, romance is alive and well but it is so much more.  Jenny’s life is a little complicated and Ethan’s is as well.  The way they navigate through the complications was really a joy to read.   I would highly recommend Bossed!

More About Bossed:

Jenny: Job interviews are a bitch under the best of circumstances, but when your potential boss is the world’s biggest prick, that’s when you should simply walk away. It’s just that I need this job so badly—and I’m mesmerized by Ethan Mason’s piercing gaze. Men like him aren’t supposed to exist in real life. But under the tailored suits and GQ looks, Ethan simmers with barely restrained ambition. And no matter how hard I work to fight the attraction, I’m going to get burned.

Ethan: You don’t become a top agent without learning how to close a deal. I always get what—or who—I want, by staying cool and in command. Then Jenny Jackson walks into my office with her lush curves and “screw you” attitude and blows away my intentions of keeping things professional. All I can think about is exploring the perfect body hidden beneath those conservative clothes or shutting her saucy mouth with one hot kiss. Jenny’s worth breaking the rules over—if I can convince her to break the rules for me.
