The heroine(s): Peyton – she works at an adventure company owned by Roman. She does a good job for the company and is ready to set out on her own and open her own business. So Peyton goes to Roman to hand in her two weeks notice and see if she can show some of her ideas to him, which doesn’t go quite as planned.
The Hero(s): Rome Blackburn – Owns his own fortune 500 outdoor adventure company and has been so focused on creating a successful business, that he has let the rest of his life go and has become quite a grouch.
The Story: Peyton is carrying a pretty big torch for her boss, even knowing what an overbearing jerk he can be. All her girlfriends in the office can’t believe she feels that way because even though they will admit how hot Rome is, they claim his personality is enough to deter them from catching feelings for him.
When Peyton goes out with her friends and has a few drinks (or six), her friend in IT hooks her up with a fake internal company email address that she can use to tell Rome how she really feels about it. Rome gets the email and in flashes between anger at the audacity of the mail and the fact that he can’t get some of its content out of his mind.
I love Sara Ney and Meghan Quinn and they make an awesome team. The grumpy boss trope is a classic and one I can never get enough of. I listed to the audiobook of this one and it was done by Alexander Cendese and Ava Erickson who are two of my favorites. Alexander is perfect for the arrogant Rome and Ava has a perfect voice for just about any romance. Her voice is soft and pleasing and completely ageless, she sounds anywhere from 17 to 35.
The story was great and it was overall a terrific audiobook and I give it 4.5 stars!
