Tempting the New Boss - Angela Claire

This is book #3 in the Sleeping With The Enemy series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and have a better understanding of the series, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Camilla needs this job as the CEO's assistant.  He has many quirks, but she figures she can handle the job.  She is completely blindsided by the sudden attraction.

 

Mason wants Camilla and is not afraid to show it.  She is an excellent assistant and impresses him on several levels.  Wanting her just makes things more complicated.

 

Such a fun book and a great addition to the series.  Sexy, fun, and full of humor, this story moves at a good pace.  I enjoyed how witty and clever the story is as it unfolds with some serious heat punching you as you read.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Tempting the New Boss
Tempting the New Boss - Angela Claire

This review was originally posted on One Curvy Blogger

2.5 stars

You know how all of us book reviewers have all said at least once that a character has totally ruined a book for them? A character in Tempting the New Boss did that for me. Not just a character – the main character. The heroine. Camilla Anderson. Sigh.

I could have dealt with the unrealistic sex scenes, the ick factor that the lack of condom between two virtual strangers gave off and I could have dealt with the insta-love. What I couldn’t deal with was the preachy, hypocritical, holier-than-thou heroine that just had to go and ruin everything.

Tempting the New Boss actually started out swell. I was really getting into the book and enjoyed the vibe between Mason and Camilla while they were feeling each other out. It’s when they got more comfortable and started to get to know one another that all hell broke loose.

Now that it was just the two of them, he really should be asking her to call him by his first name. She was about to suggest it, more of that etiquette training, when he said, “Listen, do you think we could, you know, have sex? I could pay you extra, of course. I know it’s not part of your job, but I’d love to strip you bare to just those pearls and bury myself in your–“

“What?” Only it came out as more like a squeak. Enough to stop him in his tracks, though.

Of all the…! Fury pounded through her veins.

Okay, so I get it. I would be extremely pissed off as well. Even though we are warned that Mason is extremely socially awkward going in and Camilla was told that she way partly hired to teach him to communicate with other humans, Mason propositioning her was definitely over the line and she rightly tells him off. She tells him that it is not only is it inappropriate to ask a coworker for sexual favors of any kind it is illegal.

What pisses me off? An hour later, she is tipsy and still telling off the new boss and then proceeds to proposition him! Seriously.

This kind of bullshit kills me. The hypocrisy kills me. As the book moves on, she continues to treat him like the socially inept boss and dares to continue to judge him, even after the multiple times they have sex and everything.

Yes, he made a huge mistake. But he apologizes and owns up to his mistakes. He is honest about his inability to connect with others, but it is clear that underneath his inability to make eye contact, talk to large crowds or stop himself from blurting out whatever is on his mind, he is a good guy.

Camilla, however, preaches about manners and etiquette and never seems to have a handle on either. Gah, she kills me. She really does.

Honestly, besides the heroine Tempting the New Boss wasn’t a terrible experience for me. Yes, there were other things about the book that I didn’t like, but I couldn’t put it down. I enjoyed the writing and I enjoyed the characters (except for Camilla) and I am interested in reading more from Angela Claire. Provided her other heroines are less snotty and they remember to don condoms, or course.

Even with all the issues I had with Tempting the New Boss, I still want to read more from the series so I guess the book wasn’t the worst book I’ve ever read!

Tempting the New Boss by Angela Claire


When Camilla Anderson loses her job just as a position at Talbot Inc. opens up, there’s no way she’s questioning the lucky break. Working for the quirky, reclusive CEO will pay off her student loans within a year, and they’re flying to Europe in his private jet.

Mason Talbot isn’t good at talking to women. Well, to anyone, really. But when his new lawyer boards his plane, biology kicks in. But he can’t tell if her adverse reaction is to him or his painfully awkward attempts at flirting.

As the flight gets bumpier, Mr. High IQ gets calmer. And…he holds her hand? Maybe the guy is redeemable after all. As soon as they land, she’ll have to teach her endearingly awkward new boss how to seduce a girl properly.

That is, if they don’t die in a fiery plane crash first.

About Angela Claire

Angela Claire, like most writers, grew up loving to read, which led to a degree in English literature, which in turn led to unemployment. Not having been born to wealth, Angela developed a more practical plan for eating and paying her rent—hence the dreaded and expected descent into law school and inevitable career as a lawyer. Once she paid off her pesky yet massive student loans, Angela saved for an escape from the law profession one day. Now a multi-published author, she does what she loves, but with a little less leeway on the eating and paying rent thing. She is represented by Kerry D’Agostino at Curtis Brown, LTD.

Tempting the New Boss (Sleeping with the Enemy)
Tempting the New Boss (Sleeping with the Enemy) - Angela Claire It's not everyday that you encounter a character like Mason. Mason has a head for business, a body for sin and an aloof attitude that he hides behind to conceal his insecurities. Camilla sees the man behind the genius. As she gets to know him all she wants to do is help to build his confidence. I liked Tempting the New Boss. Mason was an Alpha in training that found himself when he met Camilla. He needed her guidance to help him develop the courage to speak up and never doubt the choices he had to make. She needed him to show her that she was more than a face in the crowd. Angela Claire took a different path with this read but that's what I feel made it all the more romantic. Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
