Publisher's Summary

The first time I met Merrick Crawford was during my job interview.

Well, technically, I’d met him 20 minutes earlier when he’d barged into a fitting room a few doors down from my appointment.

I yelled. He yelled. After an argument while standing in my bra, I proceeded to smash the door into the gorgeous jerk, trying to yank it shut.

As you might imagine, I was freaked out when I discovered that the rude guy was my potential new boss.

Yet he didn’t seem to recognize me. Or so I thought.... Until we wound up bickering again during my interview and he told me to go sniff my armpit.

Okay, so maybe I hadn’t exactly been changing when he walked in on me. In my defense, I’d been stuck on a hot train for two hours and wanted to make sure I didn’t smell.

I obviously didn’t expect to get the job. But somehow an invitation to a second interview arrived in my inbox.

Before I left, I asked to see Merrick. I needed to know why I was even in consideration after our disastrous start.

Turned out, Merrick only wanted to hire me because I was the least competent candidate. It seemed his board was making him fill the position, against his wishes.

I didn’t really want to work in a place where my boss expected me to fail. But I figured maybe I’d enjoy proving him wrong. It was a little thing I dubbed the boss project.

What I wasn’t prepared for was that there would be other things I’d enjoy doing to Merrick Crawford.

Getting involved with the boss wasn’t the smartest choice.

But you know what they say about choices: Some we regret, some we are proud of. I just had no idea where this one was going to land.

This does not read like a Vi Keeland book

I am a big fan of Vi Keeland but this book does not read like one of hers. Vi's heroines are usually strong, smart, sassy, capable, take no BS women. That is what I liked about them. Evie is NONE of those things so far...I'm only on chapter 5 and am struggling to finish it. *spoilers* Opening chapter, Evie is in a job interview wearing a cherry stained shirt. Her explanation; she was eating cherries and dropped one on her shirt so decided to play it off as part of the shirt's design by deliberately adding MORE cherry stains to the rest of it. Needless to say she didn't get the job. Then the subway breaks down on the way to her next interview and she gets all hot and sweaty waiting. She ducks into a store to buy a new $140 shirt to wear to her next interview but goes into the MEN'S changing rooms instead of the women's. While in there without her shirt on she decides to wipe her arm pits then sniff them to see if she smells. This is interrupted by a man opening the dressing room door while she has her nose buried in said pit. They proceed to argue while she's standing there in a skirt and bra before he leaves. She walks into the interview to find the same guy is interviewing her. That interview doesn't go well either. Making matters worse is the constant reference to the arm pit sniffing incident. From there we find out that she ran out on her new husband at their wedding reception after showing a video of her new husband and best friend having sex in their honeymoon suite the night before the wedding. Because she went thru with the wedding before publicly humiliating him and her BFF, then filing for an annulment her ex-husband is suing her for the $10,000.00 he spent on the wedding. She goes to her ex-BFF's boyfriend who happens to be an attorney for help fighting the law suit only to find out he took said ex-BFF back so he couldn't represent her. I don't know any attorney worth a their fee who would have taken a lying, cheating, immoral partner back after seeing that video. Especially one who had no problem doing something like that to her "best friend". Seeing a pattern here? Then she goes to buy a hot dog for lunch only to find out her credit cards and bank accounts have been closed. Why? Because they were all JOINT ACCOUNTS with her ex! Not only that, she was using said bank account as her PERSONAL ACCOUNT to hold all HER money. Seriously? She couldn't see that coming? If it were me those would have been the first things I'd have taken care of the minute I hit the door at the wedding reception rather then wait for the inevitable the next time she tried to access funds. So far I'm only on the BEGINNING of CHAPTER 5. At this point I'm not even sure I WANT to finish this book. None of this book even remotely sounds like it came from Vi. I'm not going to say who it DOES sound like but if you've read HER books you'll know who I'm talking about even though HER name isn't anywhere on this book. If you like wishy, washy heroines, who are constantly finding themselves in embarrassingly painful awkward situations that don't use their common sense to figure out how to avoid situations (like pre-emptive strikes by closing ALL JOINT ACCOUNTS) that leave her twisting in the wind, this is the book for you. If you don't like heroines who are too stupid to live, can't keep it together for a single day, need a man to bail them out...keep looking elsewhere. Not even the stellar narration talents of Andi and Sebastian could save it for me. I will probably be returning this book VERY SOON.

It all started with arm pits...

Another amazing read. I have such a love/hate relationship with Vi and Penelope's books. They've consistently put out page turners that I love yet I hate when the books end (even though the endingsare amazing too). They do such a wonderful job of immersing me into the story that I feel like I'm leaving friends behind when it ends.

The secondary characters are equally awesome as the main ones. GET THIS BOOK! You won't regret it.

Reasons to buy:
This was funny from the start, then we met the troubled boss and the deceptively fierce new therapist. The hilarious grandma kitty and her wild family tree, and let NEVER forget that there's always a twist you never see coming in all their stories.

I ordered the paperback too...per usual.

Little Sebastian York

It was a pleasant fell good second chance romance. The narrators, Sebastian York and And Arndt, never disappoint, stellar narration. However, the story had little of Sebastian York, 65% of his delightful voice. I wish the plot had more participation of the male character. The story itself didn't disappointed but went slow until its reveal. I was waiting much more of Vi Keeland. Overall, it was somehow entertaining. Happy reading! ;-)

Well Done!

After a bad streak of reading/listening to multiple books in a row that didn’t hold my full attention, I was so excited to get into a new Vi Keeland story! She doesn’t disappoint!! Evie was a bit silly/flaky seeming at the outset but quickly proved to be likable, relatable, intelligent and strong. Merrick was sexy, charming, and possessive in the best way possible. He made some mistakes along the way, particularly toward the end but he had been through quite a bit of trauma in the relationship department and I felt for him as he worked through his pain and issues so that he could be the man Evie needed him to be. This storyline is a bit of a slow burn but so worth it. Great balance of depth, relationship building, character development, and heated scenes. Wonderful side characters as well. Top notch narration. 5 stars all around for me!

was expecting more

I was expecting thos story to have more sex scenes than it did. I do like character building and seeing relationships actually blossom in a story but this just seemed almost elementary in its romance/erotica.

One of My Top Listens of 2022

Every time I start a new Vi Keeland book I know that I am in for an entertaining , well written, character driven read. The Boss Project is Ms Keeland at her very best. I loved it. From start to finish I was so involved that I read this in almost one go, I simply couldn’t put it down.
It was everything I was expecting and so much more. I fell hard and fast for Merrik Crawford and Evie Vaughn from their witty meet cute and it only increased as the story progressed. From the moment they met the chemistry and sparks flew and The Boss Project was full of fun, with plenty of heart, steam and witty banter. I spent a great deal of the time laughing out loud and swooning. It was wonderful to watch their relationship develop and I found myself smiling continuously.
One of my top reads of 2022 and the narration by Sebastian York and Andi Arndt was spot on. They brought the characters to life and did this fantastic story justice.

This book made me giggle, swoon, tear up, and fan myself! Lol. A great slow-burn, office romance.

Andi and Sebastian did a superb job narrating, as always!

Outstanding story…

Vi always delivers a fantastic story but she excelled herself this time. This book has it all - a gorgeous cover, the best narrators and a storyline that’s romantic, sexy, funny and sad in places too. All in all it’s a real workout for a huge range of emotions. Don’t deliberate it download it.

Chic-Lit Comes of Age

Wow. Where to start. Fine narrators in their usual genre; long standing, much featured and enjoyed since almost the start of Audible, it was nice to see a progression into tale as 30'somethings, which suits the age of their voices so much more than high school kids. I had started to boycott this team as all the stories they did were so similar (unless written by Huss).

The female MC is a doctor, not a baker/hairdresser/pet groomer/nanny/librarian/event manager etc, which pitches the level of the story above a frivolous comedy romp into more of a meaningful heartwarming drama.

It's refreshing to have minimal swearing, minimal knickers off in chapter 1, minimal male assholary where he will be redeemed by a good women by the end blah blah blah. He might be a billionaire, but he has heart and soul from the start.

Well written, with lots of humour and warmth. VERY ENJOYABLE

What happened?

I don't want to give too much away so will try to keep things vague. However everything was going quite well, was just your typically romcom style of book - (easy listening) It was getting a bit predicitable until a twist at the grocery store which caught my attention. Though as quickly as the issue popped up the sooner it was resolved... then our leading lady had issues of her own with her ex that started to feel like it was building to a big climax of some kind .., I had to go back and double check to see if I had skipped a few chapters or if this was really how the story was ending. I am not sure why the author thought it neccessary to cut the ending short and decide to do a flashback to a point in the story that I'll be honest wasn't a focul point. Nor added to the romance or the story. It felt like it was a book that didn't know how to end so it just sort of stopped. The Pefromance was good but at times a little distracting with some of the ways they decide to "act it" If you want an easy book to read this is the one, if you are wanting something with a bit more depth and story I would look elsewhere.

They both have trust issues from past relationships. Just when all was going well, he see’s a person from his past and his world comes crashing down again. It wasn’t till he finally dealt with his past that he was able to come back to her. Great read

Couldn't stop listening

My two all time favourite narrators combined with Vi Keeland writing mastery caught me from the first chapter.

Such a beautiful story, full of giggles and oh the sexual tension throughout made for a "can't put this book down!!" story.

I love Merricks grandmother she is such a hoot and made this story unforgettable. Thank you team fantastic you made my light spark with books again. Love ya xx

Really enjoyable but…

A great story, with lots of humour. The characters were very likeable. The only issue I had was the later sex scenes which quite suddenly became kind of trashy. I found it a bit jarring. Maybe others will like that.
