REVIEW: Coldhearted Boss by R.S. Grey

by - 1:24 PM

“When’s the last time someone wondered if I was okay?”

Back of the book blurb:

I’m desperate and destitute when Lockwood Construction rolls into my small town with an offer too good to pass up: high wages to any able-bodied man willing to join their crew.

  Say no more. I throw on baggy clothes, tuck my long hair under a baseball hat, and apply for a job. Unfortunately, my half-baked idea of disguising myself as a guy is flawed from the beginning. As Shakira says, these hips don’t lie.

  Still, I like to think I might have pulled the whole thing off save for one thing:

  I know my boss.

  Last month, we met at a bar, and after a fiery first encounter, it seems we’re destined to be sworn enemies.

  Ethan Stone is ruthless and arrogant, a man I never would have crossed had I known how much he likes to toy with his prey.

  He should just fire me and be done with it. Instead, he decides to make me his personal slave. Oh right, I think they’re calling it personal “assistant” these days.

  It’s torture, all of it—his bad attitude, his ruggedly chiseled face, his desire to grind me into dust.

  Every one of our friction-filled battles burns hotter than the last.

  A girl can only hold out for so long. Soon, I’m bound to go up in flames.

  My objective? Survive the heat long enough to send home a paycheck.

  My real objective? Stop having X-rated fantasies about my coldhearted boss.

My rating:

            Each R.S. Grey book tops itself. The queen of romantic comedies manages to impress me every single time. They say to stick with what you know, but sometimes that can get boring. However, R.S. Grey’s sense of humor along with her wonderful sense of romance and you have a novel that is jam-packed with heart and hilarity. Coldhearted Boss is so romantic that it hurts.

“This isn’t a man you use for a night. This is a man you turn your life upside down for…”

            Let’s start with my favorite thing about R.S. Grey’s novels: even though they’re always sold as romantic comedies (and they are exactly that), there’s always so many angst-y and tender moments. And yes, I know a lot of romantic comedies have angst-y and tender moments; however, they’re played off. R.S. Grey embraces them, especially in Coldhearted Boss.

“I was hoping I’d blackout for a couple minutes or—even better—experience a nice bout of amnesia. Nothing too crazy, just maybe I’d forget who I am and where I live and why my life is a bleak desolate nightmare.”

            There’s something so endearing about R.S. Grey’s MCs being so self-deprecating. I think because I can relate to feeling that way, but regardless, I love it. Taylor is the perfect amount of strong mixed with self-deprecation. She’s all heart even if she does try to hide it and I love her for it.

“I’ve wanted her here with me since the beginning.”

            Obviously, we all love an enemies-to-lovers romance. Especially when the reason why they’re enemies is because they’re so attracted to each other. All of the miscommunication, the loathing—all foreplay. It’s so addicting and I swear, R.S. Grey is a master at it.

            Coldhearted Boss is a beautiful addition to Grey’s bibliography and a wonderful way to start your obsession with R.S. Grey! Pick it up today!

Happy Reading!
