5 out of 5 Stars
April Morgan has been making her own way in the world by working and going to business school. She’s been sexy billionaire Sam Hunt’s right hand woman for six years, and up until now she’s been able to push thoughts of having him as anything other than a friend aside. When Sam’s flavor of the week pushes things too far, April finds herself out of a job and with mixed feelings for Sam.
With Sam’s company about to go public, April taking a job with his father—his enemy—is a risky option. She discovers something that could bring Sam’s company to its knees, and she and Sam will need to work together to save all their hard work as well as their relationship.
Teaching the Boss was a well written contemporary romance. It hooked me in early on and kept me reading late into the night. Sam starts off as a bit of a playboy, but ultimately it’s revealed that he mostly uses these women—mutually—for publicity. It’s easy to fall in love with him right along with April. I actually enjoyed that the book didn’t start at the beginning of their relationship. They’ve known each other for six years, so this wasn’t a case of instant love. Their relationship progressed at a good pace. For once it was nice to see the alpha male listening to the advice of the heroine and not always thinking he was the only one who could be right.
The secondary characters were well incorporated into the story, never leaving me feeling like their scenes were filler. I even enjoyed them enough to want to read other books in the series about them.
If you enjoy sexy billionaires and strong heroines, this book is a must read. I would definitely read more from Mallory Crowe.
