Book Review: 'Please, Boss' by Juliana Conners
For those of us who are new to the writing of Juliana Conners it is best to note what is written in her biography section – ‘Juliana writes sizzling hot romance about bad boys with filthy mouths and even dirtier thoughts, and the feisty ladies who win not only their rock hard, tattooed bodies but also their hearts.’
The language of Juliana’s books, best sellers here on Amazon, is raw and difficult to quote because of the crude expletives, but somehow she makes this choice of language work very well for her characters - true Bad Boys!
The synopsis is tight and accurate – ‘Take Me. Teach Me. Train Me. Please, Boss. I'm filthy rich and used to getting everything I want: A yacht, jet skis, a private plane and plenty of women. But my one rule is never to mix work and pleasure. An office fling isn't worth losing my lucrative law firm. Now I have a spunky young secretary named Ruby. I also have a dilemma. Because I want Ruby in a way I've never wanted anyone. I'm her much older boss-- old enough to know better. I can tell by the way Ruby looks at me: I make her knees weak. She thinks she wants me. For her very first time. But she doesn't know what it is she's asking for. I don't just want her on my desk, on my floor, on my lap. I want her tied up and begging me to do whatever I want with her. Taming her will be quite a challenge. Ruby's no pushover. She has a mind of her own. I'm beginning to suspect she also has some dark secrets. Her own past, mixed with my present desires, could get us both into a lot of trouble.’
And from the first page the action is vitriolic, erotic and packed tightly between the expletives. For those who like their erotic on the naughty side, this is it. Grady Harp, July 17
