Title: Bossy Nights
Author: Liv Morris
Genre: Office Romance
Release Date: 24 July 2018
I’ve landed in New York City with my resume in one hand and my V-card in the other. The resume? I’ll give to any man on the street. The other? Well . . . I won’t settle for anything less than lightning bolt chemistry and so far no one has flipped that switch.
Until I meet Barclay Hammond, CEO of the most prestigious publishing house in NYC and the city’s most eligible bachelor.
And my new boss.
The raw attraction between us is off the charts. Late nights together in the city, the looks he gives me across the boardroom table make him impossible to resist. I want him to be the one and he wants me too…
There’s only one BIG problem. Sleeping with your boss is strictly forbidden at Hammond Press.
Who knew losing it would be so complicated?

“Where are we going?” She turns a curious eye toward me, tilting her head to the side. I glance over my shoulder as I guide her a few steps away and around a corner.
“Trust me?” She nods, and I point to the closed door in front of us.
“The cloakroom?” she asks with a teasing smile.
“Shush,” I whisper, twisting the handle to see if it’s locked. It moves in my hand. I’m in luck.
I open the door wide enough for us both to slide inside, then leave it cracked a few inches so a sliver of light streams in. Aside from a few empty hangers on a rod, the room is bare.
“What are we doing in here?” Tessa asks, but her eager eyes give her away. She wants me as much as I want her.
“I need something from you before we join the others.” I lean forward and speak into her ear.
“What’s that?” she breathes.
“This.” I place my hands on her back. She shivers at my touch, following with a sweet sigh. My fingers trail over her velvety skin, lingering at the simple hook connecting her lone strap. If only we had more time. “Your skin’s so smooth and silky.”
I bend down and kiss her lips, and she returns it with a passion matching mine. Tessa links her fingers behind my neck, and we are lost in each other. Minutes later, when we both need to draw in a breath, I move my lips down her neck and over the exposed curves of her breasts.
“I want to taste all of you,” I say against her skin, and feel her pulse racing like mine.
Dropping to my knee, I bring my hands to the back of her toned legs, and trace the delicate skin behind her knees. Her muscles flex and release in anticipation. With a feather like touch, I inch up her thighs, finding the lacy edge of her panties. “Has anyone touched you here?”
“No one,” she blows out between labored breaths. She gazes down at me with eyes full of desire, but there’s a tentativeness in them I can’t ignore. My touches, and the promise of more between us, are new and unchartered territory for her.
I rise to my full height, changing our position. Looking down at her, I wonder if this beautiful woman is ready for what I want to do to her and what we can be together. I have to ease her into things, build her confidence. It should be her decision to freely give into the passion and trust me. Let me make her mine. I won’t push her from the base of the mountain to the peak in one night.
“I want to be the first. Are you okay with that?” I run my fingers over the curve of her shoulders.
“Yes, please,” she begs.
Before starting the book, I was thinking that this would be another great office romance but it turned out to be a truly amazing read!
I loved both the characters and the story! Tessa has just graduated from college and she’s moving to New York to find a job in publishing. She’s still a virgin and with her moving to the city she’s determined to lose it at last. Enter Barclay, the sexy CEO of Hammond Press aka her dream job. When they meet, the connection between them is undeniable but they can’t act on it because Tessa is now hired at Hammond Press and Barclay is her new boss.
I loved Tessa; she’s the young book blogger behind Shakespurr (coolest blog name ever :-P), a real book lover and enthusiast! The scene where Tessa gets to meet her favorite author made me wish I’ll have the same chance one day. Barclay is the older, hot man. Their age difference is actually his main concern about their relationship. At times it got kind of frustrating; I mean you like her just act on it! Tessa’s best friend is hilarious and I can’t help but wonder if we are getting her story next. Her brother is too overprotective and Barclay is ok with it and act accordingly.
This book sucked me in from the first chapters and I was so interested to find out more, that I devoured it in one sitting! I really like the ending, it was amazing, and I can’t wait to read more from the author!
