The interview was odd, basically a set-up and a bribe to spy on another company. I was shocked that Collingsworth, the boss, put his trust in someone like that and I was more surprised that Ben accepted the deal without question. Ben didn’t seem naïve or stupid, but those were my thoughts as he took the job. And of course, he ends up working for a women he likes and respects, while the boss ends up being…Cody.
They try to keep things professional for a bit and Cody has some serious hot and cold moments. The secret of how Ben got the job is always looming over them, as well. I liked the interaction Ben has at work, other than Cody sometimes! He actually starts off right away with, “Ben, about our meeting in Greece, I’d rather you didn’t mention it to anyone at Starwest Industries.” But it’s right around the corner that Ben is invited by Cody to Santa Barbra for the weekend. So, he’s aggravating. It is telling that Ben believes his boss is honest, yet “…Ben believed Cody was capable of using dishonest means to further his interests…”
There were some things in this story that worked really well for me and then some that didn’t. I really thought Ben capitulated way too easily at the end because let’s be honest – Cody was a jerk and humiliated him. Yes, Ben had started off with less than stellar intentions but Cody was closeted, pushing him away and treating him like a dirty secret before he even knew that. And didn’t listen when Ben tried to explain. My rating was a 4 for Ben, probably a 2 for Cody.
I liked the plot itself, and Janet, Ben’s boss, is lovely. Cody and Ben have some good moments but when Janet says, “I’m guessing you’re making Cody feel things he doesn’t want to feel. I’d advise you to give him more time” I just felt bad for Ben but had some sympathy for Cody as well – he doesn’t tell Ben his story, but Janet does. I look back and realize I sound really critical of Cody and I didn’t for all of it. But I did for quite a bit!
I’d recommend this for those who like their MC to work for it and for the intrigue of the corporate world. Let’s not forget Janet, because I really liked and respected her. Ben is also lovely and I seriously wish I could have seen him punch Collingsworth before it ended!
Ben is only trying to help his mother and brother after his father is killed in a car accident and his brother is injured. They become his main priority and trying to help them financially. So when offered to go under cover to try and find out if Starwest Industries is stealing ideas from the competition Ben jumps at the job. Plus the pay will help Ben to help his family.
What Ven does not expect is to fall for the president of the company, Cody. Even more surprising is Cody falls for Ben also but he does not want too.
Sometimes when secrets and lies come to light, the truth is still not what we find. That is the case for Ben and Cody. Can these two men that seem to cannot let the other walk away find a way to make a life together or are they doomed from the first meeting.
This was a good book where the more you learn about the characters the more you feel for each of the. Neither man has had it easy. Both have family issues they have had to deal with and have to get over in order to find their own happiness. Great story.
Was given this galley copy for free for an open and honest review
I have never read any books before by Ali Atwood so I was quite pleased to be offered the chance to read and review Scoring the Boss. I chose the book because the author was new to me and because I liked the look of the storyline,
Cody and Ben are from two totally different backgrounds but there is an instant attraction when they meet in Greece. Ben has to put everything aside though when he gets tragic news from home. He puts his artistic ambitions aside and looks for a full time job to help his family.
When Ben starts working for Starwest Industries he has no idea and Cody owns the company.. Further complications arise because Cody is closeted and Ben is out.
There is a subplot which I will not go into but rest assured that both Cody and Ben will have to work for their relationship.
The writing style was good and the story was interesting enough to want to know what happens.
I will be reading more books by this author and I have no problems in recommending it to others.
