ARC Review: Sleeping With The Boss (Anderson Brothers #1)

Sleeping With The Boss (Anderson Brothers #1) by Marissa Clarke

Publisher: Entangled, 2014
250 pages, kindle edition
Source: Xpresso Book Tours

Synopsis (from Goodreads):
A satisfying category romance from Entangled’s brand new Lovestruck imprint…

Seducing the enemy has never been so tempting…

For the last five years, bookish Claire Williams has been living for the dying. Now that her stint as caretaker is over, she’s off to see the world. She needs quick cash first, so a temp job at Anderson Auctions seems perfect, especially with the unexpected benefits, including the hottest man she’s ever laid eyes—or hands—on.

Former Marine William Anderson has been burned one time too many. His military training makes him the perfect man to flush out the spy undercutting his family business, but no amount of training can prepare him for the kind of undercover work he’ll have to do when the sexy new temp is implicated. Desire lands them in bed…but duty may cost him his heart.

My Review:
When a book has you chuckling within the first couple of paragraphs you know you are in for a fantastic read and this is exactly what you get with this book and latest offering from the Lovestruck imprint.

From the moment our heroines skirt rips down the seam revealing a pink thong to our hero, to the very last page that I finished with a goofy grin on my face, I loved this book.

This was not your typical boss/underling trope. While yes our H/h Will and Claire both work at the same company and yes you could call him her boss. It’s not really that straight forward. We get the pleasure in this book of meeting the three, yes three Anderson brothers. They all run the company, so hence the not your typical trope reference.

In Will we get the returned soldier who was publicly humiliated by his bitch of an ex-fiance and who now doesn’t want a HEA and is happy to run the security side of the business. Away for the office preferably. But that all changes when his brother Michael calls him to the office and he has a interesting encounter with Claire.

Claire, there is so much to love about her. She cared for her grandparents when they became sick and eventually passed and now is taking a temp job for money till her inheritance lands in her bank account. The last thing she expected was to be caught up in a spy scandal but this is what happens.

Watching these two fall for each other was a delight. The sparks fly from their first meeting and continue to spark hotter and hotter the more time they spend in each other’s company despite the whole spy thing hovering over their heads. Will is drool worthy in his pursuit. You will see what I mean when you read it.

“She just made out with her boss against the door of her apartment. Like seriously made out with him complete with some grabass.”

The end of this book had me alternating between sniffles, chuckles and sighs. I also can’t wait to read stories for Will’s two brothers Michael and Chance. They will no doubt not go down without a fight.
This is yet another author to that will be added to my ever growing must read pile.
