I was given Boss Overboard for an honest review by Manic Readers
Lydia Johnson’s boss sent her message telling her she was going on a cruise as a secret shopper, something she hasn’t done for three years. The cruise leaves in three days and Oh yeah she will be taking a trainee with her. Paul makes her want things but she isn’t willing to jeopardize her job for fling.
J. P. Theriot’s cruise ship is getting substandard reviews and he want to know why. His plan is to go in as a trainee, Paul Thomas. He knows his lack of education can sometimes be a problem but he has surrounded himself with the best people, that’s where Lydia comes in, by all reports she is the best secret shopper his company has and not only intends to get to the bottom of why his cruise ship is failing but prove Lydia is the best. He didn’t expect to fall for her and she isn’t making it easy for him.
Boss Overboard needs some minor editing because I found a few sentence missing words and the story line was pretty boring. I did think that the characters were well developed and written but I spent most of my time asking “Am I done yet?” I think the best part of the whole book was when Paul was telling Lydia what he would with her once he got her into bed, but once he got her there it was just ok.
Book’s Blurb Rating
I think mentioning the ex-fiancé was a bit of a waste but other than that it is well written and fits the story line.
An all expenses paid, trans-Atlantic cruise has romance written all over it…unless you’re the poor sap who has to inspect the toilets and time the cafeteria lines. As if secret-shopping her company’s failing cruise ship isn’t bad enough, Lydia Johnson is forced to bring along a “top talent” new hire as her assistant. With a heart barely healed from her ex-fiancé’s deceit, she’s in no mood to train a man who might cheat her out of an overdue promotion.
Paul Thomas may be new to J.P. Theriot Enterprises, but he certainly knows his way around cruise ships. The Cajun charmer also isn’t shy about pursuing his desires, including his wary, but oh-so-sexy-when-she lets-her-hair-down manager. He’s shared more about himself with Lydia than any other woman…except who he really is–J.P. Theriot.
