Series: Possessed Part 1
My boss is an asshole.
I’d take off my heels and throw them at his face, if they weren’t so expensive.
Why? Because my boss, the sexy, billionaire bad boy Leo King, wants me to be his wife.
That’s right. His wife. Except, it isn’t real. It’s all pretend so his family believes it, and I’m supposed to go along with it.
Asshole doesn’t even begin to describe him, and it’s only going to get worse. Especially because his cocky attitude and sudden interest in my private life make it difficult to concentrate on something other than his sexual innuendos. I always do what he wants, and we both know it. It’s not like I have a choice. Agree or get fired.
I’m going to need a drink … Or twenty.
I actually really enjoyed this story – even though it had nods towards FSOG a bit. We are quickly thrown into the crux of this story – with Samantha our leading lady being asked to do something for her boss that’s outside of what her job scope is. very far outside her scope. She’s the assistant to the CEO of W magazine and of course, said CEO, Leo, is very attractive, yet quite the asshole. He has found himself in a jam where he’s told his parents that he’s married since that’s what they told him needs to happen, and he now needs to bring a wife home to meet them.
Between you and me, how he sets it up is very fishy since we learn that he was in vegas and he was drunk texting Sam – so i gather that he DID get married but that the person that he married may not be the right type of person to show off. we’ll see i’m sure.
In any event, Sam of course has her own level of sass and won’t just take the request lightly from Leo, she makes him put everything in writing, gets an increase in pay and gives him grief every step of the way.
If that weren’t enough, there’s an interesting side bit of the story with Sam who likes to engage in a bit of phone/text flirtation with an unknown man – and they share emails back and forth telling each other what it is that they want the other to do sexually and to provide picture proof that they’re doing it. just not any pics that would be recognizable (i.e. faces etc). So we have that side story of Samantha’s mystery man – who i have a feeling will turn out to be Leo – but that’s just my expectation since things like this tend to be predictable.
As we tend to find in this genre – the CEOs tend to be Alpha and very dominating, which Leo seems to encompass. It’s only when we see him with his family that his facade crumbles a bit, but i’m sure there’s a story there. When he’s with Sam, he’s very controlling and powerful and brings out responses in Sam that she’s not expecting yet quite enjoys. Seeing as how she engages in whatever it is with her phone buddy at work, masturbating in the bathroom and all that, it’s surprising to me that anything would shock her, yet some of the things that Leo insinuates certainly does that.
So within this short 100 or so page intro to the series, we have a complicated story that i cna’t wait to see how it will play out. There’s clearly chemistry between Sam and Leo, yet there’s so much more to the story that we don’t know about – the mystery of the maybe wife from vegas, the mystery man on the phone – all things to make for a very tense next few chapters. I like that we got the tease of their scening together at least towards the end of the book – they were hot and steamy and definitely have shared passions which make for a good story. so….enjoy!
