Summary

"Dominic was staring at me like he couldn’t decide whether to chop me into pieces or pull my hair and French kiss me."

Dominic

I got her fired. Okay, so I’d had a bad day and took it out on a bystander in a pizza shop. But there’s nothing innocent about Ally Morales. She proves that her first day of her new job in my office, after being hired by my mother.

So, maybe, her colorful, annoying, inexplicably alluring personality brightens up the magazine’s offices that have felt like a prison for the past year. Maybe, I like that she argues with me in front of the editorial staff. And maybe, my after-hours fantasies are haunted by those brown eyes and that sharp tongue.

But that doesn’t mean that I’m going to be the next Russo man to take advantage of his position. I might be a second-generation asshole, but I am not my father. She’s working herself to death at half a dozen dead-end jobs for some secret reason she doesn’t feel like sharing with me. And I’m going to fix it all. 

Don’t accuse me of caring. She’s nothing more than a puzzle to be solved. If I can get her to quit, I can finally peel away all those layers. Then I can go back to salvaging the family name and forget all about the dancing, beer-slinging brunette.

Ally

Ha! Hold my beer, Grumpy Grump Face.

Author’s note: A steamy, swoony workplace romantic comedy with a grumpy boss hero determined to save the day and a plucky heroine who is starting to wonder if there might actually be a beating heart just beneath her boss’ sexy vests.

Was this a book or a porno?

This could have been a good story but there was so much padding with graphic sex scenes the story if there was one was totally lost. It could have been about 10 chapters shorter than it was if all the over the top sex was taken out. Dominic I think had a medical problem known as Priapism as he appeared to have a constant erection! it really became boring to keep hearing him growl about how much he wanted to shag her and if Ally said one more time that she thought she must be in a dream or have just been hit by a bus or unconscious I think I would have screamed.

A perfectly well rounded story...

First of all... I was sold on this book with the narrators alone. With this calibre of narration, you know that something special is to ensue...

... And.... I was right!

Perfection... Not just a boy meets girl scenario... This was multi leveled, yet not over complicated. Characters and surroundings were flawlessly described. Thoroughly enjoyed listening!

Loved this book

At times Erin Mallon’s narration slightly annoyed me and I wish they had been more SebYo but overall it was a great listen.

Even BETTER second time around!

I bought the ebook and read it and when I 'joined' Audible it was a no brainer to purchase the Audible version of this book!
Do yourself a favour, and treat yourself to this if you love Sassy Independent Women in their late 30s and a Mid Forties Alpha Male who just needs to be taught how to show his softer side. Love that this has not only an epilogue but also an additional epilogue!
Love, ❤, 💓,💞,💝, 💗 it!

Loved this feisty romance 💕💕

Dominic has met his match with Ally and she doesn't hold anything back when giving her opinion of him even when it causes her to lose her job.
Dominic's mother likes Ally's sassy attitude and gives her job working for her, much to Dominic's annoyance. That's when the sparks really start to fly.
Two of my favourite narrators did an amazing job of bringing all the characters to life and I highly recommend this story.
Deserves more than 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Beyond 5 Maleficently Charming Stars

If you only read one book this year / month / week - READ THIS ONE.
Fantastic characters, brilliant story , hilarious, moving , heart poundingly sexy. This book is superb & Dominic & Ally are one of the very best lead MC’s I have ever had the pleasure of reading. The narration by Erin Mallon & Sebastian York is excellent.

Overall

I really enjoyed this book because I tend to binge listen so it lasted me longer than a day in intervals which was great. Story is a little unnecessarily long though, probably could have been condensed a little bit BUT I did still really enjoy it. The male narrator was great but the female was at times robotic and tended to drag her words out at the end... once you hear it you can’t not notice.

If you can ignore that then I would recommend!
