Summary

Lauren:

Going back to work was supposed to be a painless transition, but when my new boss turns out to be an arrogant, cocky jerk, he quickly turns my professional life into a world of torture. Okay, fine, calling him an asshat before knowing he was my boss wasn't my finest moment. Hating him should be easy. I just never counted on him being so gorgeous or charming when he's not annoying me.

Austin:

I expected my new assistant to be professional and punctual, but all I'm getting are dirty looks and rude comments. I should fire the little hellion, but instead all I can think about is bending her over my desk and breaking every rule I've ever made for myself.

One look. One touch. One night. If we break the rules, our lives will never be the same again.

Good thing rules were made to be broken. And besides, it feels so good to tempt the boss.

Contains mature themes.

Enjoyed

Enjoyed this book. Its predictable but is well written and enjoyable if you like this genre.

The one problem I have is the author, when a new chapter begins and it changes points of view to the other character, they back track and retell the same situation but through the other persons eyes. Sometimes this adds something more to the story and sometimes it's a little annoying. This is this authors style though, as I've noticed in their other books and doesn't stop me from enjoying story.

ANOTHER ENJOYABLE READ BY NATASHA

Another enjoyable read by Natasha Madison.

An enemy to lovers romance containing light, funny moments and plenty of hotness.

Lauren is starting a new job, its a new start for her now that she's a single mum and she's ready to get back Into work after divorcing her cheating husband.
Austin is one of those bosses who has worked his way through a lot of personal assistants, he's bossy, rude, basically, he's an A-hole but a hot A-hole and he's about to meet his match.

Lauren has a backbone, she's sassy and outspoken. There's instant chemistry between the two but instead of pretty fireworks there's heated explosions.
Lauren wants to prove she is no push over and tries to teach Austin, her bossy boss a lesson but it backfires more than once.

I enjoyed Tempt the boss, it's a light-hearted read with enough going on to keep you interested, I Iiked the characters and the plot although not original, I have read many similar.
I also liked Lauren's quirky sister too, who I'm looking forward to reading more about in her own book.

Hot in all the right places, swoon moments, great characters and finishes with a hea, perfect.

I listened to this in audio which was good but the male narrator's voice didn't have much emotion at times and I think the funny parts of this book may have been funnier to me if I had read this and those parts left to my own imagination rather than how he told it.

Would you consider the audio edition of Tempt the Boss to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the book so can't say but I enjoy audio books better in general

What was one of the most memorable moments of Tempt the Boss?

itching powder, sooo funy

What does Guy Locke and Jillian Macie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

very well read. They add character to the people

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

not really

Any additional comments?

a simple story, quite predictable, but a light hearted book and funny in places too

I havent laughed this hard since Beautiful Bastard

This was an awesome listen, not only was it a great romance, but it was FUNNY. I made the mistake of listening to this at work and I couldn't focus. The narration was perfect, along with the story line. So many books the female lead is some 20 something who's a virgin right out of college. This is about a 30 something single mom starting work after being a stay at home mom for years. Well worth the credit!!

Ridiculous immature pranks, ridiculous story!

After reading all the reviews about people loving this story and finding it funny, I'm scratching my head trying to figure out if we were reading the same book!

I really, really didn't like the people in this book. The two main characters, Lauren and Austin are two of the most immature main characters I think I've ever encountered in a book. Lauren goes back to work for a temp agency after her jerk of a husband leaves her for her child's teacher (she finds out during a parent teacher conference, again a ridiculous scenario). Her first job is as a PA to a CEO (how did this idiot ever get to be a CEO anyway??), who has gone through at least 10 PA's before her. She quickly finds out why no one will work for him and they begin a series of retaliation pranks that really are full-on criminal activity. I had an awful time, especially with Austin, believing that he wasn't 18 years old - that's how he acted the whole way through this book. And who hires their former childhood nanny to run an HR department? Did she go back to college after raising him to get a business degree? The fact that the nanny was running HR explained how the stupid criminal pranks went unpunished and no one was fired.

Sorry for the ranting and raving, but there is so much wrong with this book, I just couldn't write a review. Don't waste your credit and instead go get the book "The Hating Game" by Sally Thorne, which is a wonderfully written book about two people who work together and don't get along.

Funny and Sweet, Hot and Sweaty

Wow I loved this story!...Lauren is a woman in her thirties who has stayed home with her two children while her husband worked...she goes to parent meeting at school to find out her husband has been cheating in her with the teacher....forward 6 months and she on the way to her first temp job and she’s rear ended by a hot looking guy who is rude and mean to her...things just flow from there.
Lauren, the cheated on wife, is not afraid to speak her mind she has a funny sister who moves in with her who is funny and supportive and she has a one up manship with her temp boss..
Let just say it’s so much fun watching Lauren get what she deserves as well as her ex Husband!
I will be getting more of this authors books....and audio...the narrators, both POV narrators were great!
My first book by this author and i plan to snatch them all up!

Tempt The Boss

The story line has promise, however the way it was written left alot to be desired. The story line flipped back and forth unnaturally, (at one point the hero left to go home on a Sunday night when he had work the next morning and no cloths to wear to work, the heroin questioned if he wanted to be in her and her kids life because he "ditched as soon as the kids came home from their dads"... meanwhile the hero has been taking her and the kids to ice skating and eating ice cream and spending alot of time with them all as a family), it just felt like forced angst to give the story some grit. There was alot of fluff here, that if it were cut out it would probably bring the book from 9 hours to 6. There was some funny banter in the beginning that had me laughing, and the character development was good.

The narrators also fell flat for me, the female narrator (Jillian Macie) does not portray a good male character voice, and there was no true inflection to give depth to the story. The male narrator (Guy Locke) came across very nasal sounding and too soft spoken for such a strong "alpha" male lead.

Couldn’t finish book

I was looking for a light, funny story . According to the other reviews, this was the book. But sadly it was not. It was silly in the beginning then quickly turned over the top ridiculous. The narrators were annoying at first but as the story worsened I couldn’t tolerate the voices any longer.

Guy Locke needs to NEVER narrate a book, ever.

First, he speaks interminably slow in an attempt to enunciate cor-recT-ly. Second, he is monotone, to a fault. Three, he sounds about as romantic as a chair. Please encourage him to read only math and manuals in the future. Thank you.

Horrible!

Which century was this book written in? There is work place harassment, sexism and absolutely senseless and horrible storyline!
