My Hot Boss was the first book I have read by Betty Shreffler and it will not be the last. When we meet our heroine, Emma, she is drinking away her troubles in a bar. Determined to leave with a man for the night, things start to go awry when she meets our hero, Grayson. From there, the poor girl is finds herself entrenched in one embarrassing episode after another. I really liked Emma. She is fun and smart and very much tired of being treated like dirt by her boyfriends. She is passionate about her job and her relationships with her friends are equally telling in how devoted and loyal she is to those around her. Even better, her hilarious hijinks do nothing to dissuade Grayson. The poor man finds himself smitten from the very beginning. Grayson was very hard for me to read at first….he was hot one minute and cool the next. I have to say, it took me awhile to warm up to him. But once I did, he was a pretty great guy. They had some hot chemistry, on top of a great working relationship. Surprisingly, Grayson had a sweet side I didn’t expect and alpha male tendencies that were a complete surprise! Together, the sparks between them are dynamite and the sex scenes were erotic and plentiful! I love a hero with a dirty mouth and Grayson has a fabulous one. There is some angst and office shenanigans and one woman Emma worked with that was a complete witch!!! The book held my attention the entire time and I was very satisfied with the ending. Reading My Hot Boss was definitely a wonderful way to spend a weekend afternoon. From beginning to end this book entertained me. I am definitely looking forward to the next book by Ms. Shreffler and will be adding her past work to my reading library. She has a real way with words that is both emotional and lighthearted. Definitely an author to keep your eyes on. 4 stars.

Release Date: August 15, 2017
From the moment I met Grayson Cole, I knew he was someone I wanted to let in my panties and maybe, even in my heart. One night, one sexy-as-sin kiss, and several drinks later, our incredible evening turns into a disaster and I’m apologizing for the vomit spatter on his fancy, black shoes. I never thought I’d see him again after that, no matter how many nights I spent wishing I would. Until a month later, he waltzes into my office as—MY NEW, HOT BOSS. I’m so screwed.
She was meant to be a fun f*ck. That’s all I wanted. That’s all I needed. But Emma Williams could never be just that for me. The quirky, brunette vixen challenges me at every opportunity. My desire to have her has me working for her affections, like I’ve never done before. What is this woman doing to me? Not only am I her Boss, but I don’t do feelings. There’s only one way I see this ending. I’m f*cked for sure.
Betty Shreffler is a self-proclaimed nerd and nature enthusiast obsessed with folklore, photography, writing, reading, movies, board games, hiking, gardening and spending time with her husband and five fur babies. Not necessarily in that exact order though. During her outdoor adventures she’s been face to face with an alligator, a bear and a coyote, making for some of the most memorable experiences of her life. She loves to capture and share the world’s beauty through the lens of her beloved Nikon camera. Her work experience has been diverse from working as a Ranger for the National Park Service to management positions in Fortune 500 companies. She’s lived in four different states and moved homes twelve times. She received a BA in organizational management and minor in sociology, although her heart has always belonged to writing and photography. Growing up, she read romance or supernatural novels and jotted down poems and short stories to express her emotions and alleviate the characters’ voices in her head. Not much has changed, only now her stories are lengthier and her characters more interesting.
