REVIEW: Coldhearted Boss by R.S. Grey

I’m desperate and destitute when Lockwood Construction rolls into my small town with an offer too good to pass up: high wages to any able-bodied man willing to join their crew.

Say no more. I throw on baggy clothes, tuck my long hair under a baseball hat, and apply for a job. Unfortunately, my half-baked idea of disguising myself as a guy is flawed from the beginning. As Shakira says, these hips don’t lie.

Still, I like to think I might have pulled the whole thing off save for one thing:

I know my boss.

Last month, we met at a bar, and after a fiery first encounter, it seems we’re destined to be sworn enemies.

Ethan Stone is ruthless and arrogant, a man I never would have crossed had I known how much he likes to toy with his prey.

He should just fire me and be done with it. Instead, he decides to make me his personal slave. Oh right, I think they’re calling it personal “assistant” these days.

It’s torture, all of it—his bad attitude, his ruggedly chiseled face, his desire to grind me into dust.

Every one of our friction-filled battles burns hotter than the last.

A girl can only hold out for so long. Soon, I’m bound to go up in flames.

My objective? Survive the heat long enough to send home a paycheck.

My real objective? Stop having X-rated fantasies about my coldhearted boss.

Roses are red and violets are another color and I don’t care, just please let me kiss you again.


I love R.S. Grey and this may be one of my favorites from her. I love enemies to lovers and I love office romances, this book checks off both of those for me.

Taylor is one strong woman. Despite everything that is going on in her life, she will do whatever she can to help her family out. She is barely making any money as a maid, so when the opportunity to make more money comes up she jumps at the opportunity. Of course, her boss is a man she met a bar. Ethan, despite him being coldhearted, I found it so hard not to love the man. You could tell there was a sweet, caring and loving man under that cold exterior. I just couldn’t get enough of him.

I loved that this was a little bit different when it comes to an office romance, considering they weren’t in a traditional office setting, but out in the middle of the woods. The banter between Taylor and Ethan was AMAZING and their chemistry was fantastic.

This story was funny, sweet, and does not disappoint one bit! A TOP READ of 2019 and a new favorite of mine by R.S. Grey!
