I bought bad for the boss from Amazon for my kindle app and couldn’t put it down.
Jennifer is a plus sized woman with a dark past. She’s working as a social media rep in an advertising company. The office sleaze is hitting on her, and she sends an email to her friend asking for help to get her out of this situation. But she didn’t send it to her friend–she sent it to one of the partners.
Theo is a work-obsessed man who is unprepared for the accidental email, and is intrigued. He replies, insisting that the work-place should be harassment free, and adds a more personal note. When she replies with a reassurance that she’s fine, but a snarky ps, he’s hooked. He needs to meet Jen.
The connection between the two is irresistible, and as a reader I totally bought in. Jen and Theo are three dimensional people, and you see a glimpse of their lives beyond the office. While Theo is Chinese and Jen is Black, race isn’t an issue beyond a few respectful gestures. Nor is Jen’s weight an obstacle–Theo is hooked on her curves and finds her gorgeous, full stop. As a fat woman myself, it was so refreshing to see a plus sized heroine who I liked and identified with.
When dark things happen, Theo wants to protect Jen, but I don’t want to spoil the ending.
The book is a fast, hot read (I was ready to jump my partner after some of the sex scenes, or failing that, find some other release). I was thrilled to find out there’s a sequel, and have already bought it.
I highly recommend Bad for the Boss. If all the erotica I read this year is this hot, I’ll burn out my vibrator.
I think my only other complaint was that outside of Theo being called an asian guy once by someone drunk, there were no other indicators that he was a Chinese/White hero. He could have just been white and it wouldn't have mattered because there were so few clues and description tags that let me know he was a mixed race hero the way the heroine was written CLEARLY and UNAPOLOGETICALLY Black. Like I said, he could have been white and it wouldn't have mattered since there was little talk about his family or background.
I buried that complaint when he offered to detangle her hair though. That's husband status right there! Loved it!
Theodore Chamberlain is a stereotypical badboy businessman with terrible temper. He should have never met model employee Jennifer Johnson, until Jennifer's email accidentally ended up in his inbox, and he's intrigued, and what he wants... he gets. Jen's not ready to give in, as she does not want to risk her perfect job for a fling, but Ted's determined to offer her any guarantee she wanted, as long as he can have her... And when a threat from her past surfaced, Ted's there...
Ted's supposed to be Asian? Well, he's HALF-Asian, supposedly his father married Chinese from Hong Kong. And JJ is black with curves. But I honestly don't feel much ethnicity there in the book except for occasional bits. The guy's British except for his name (Ted's actually his middle name). The plot was actually above average, with a bit of bookend beginning and end. All in all, above average.
I loved Jen, she's a great character and im pretty sure she was queer too! She did mention to Theo having had boyfriends and a girlfriend. I loved her relationship with her best friend Aria. The sex box discussion had me cackling.
I really liked Theo as well. Even as i found him too demanding at times i loved how much he was enamored by jen. My fave scene has to be when he You Tubes the hair wash routine for her hair type, which is 4B so he can do it right. Now that's love right there ;)
Enjoyed this one so im gonna get to book 2 asap!
