Product Description


My new temp doesn’t quite have the level of sophistication I’ve grown used to with secretaries from the recruitment agency. She’s only been here ten minutes, and she’s already gotten stuck in the elevator, blown up her computer, and caused the coffee machine to explode all over the floor. She says technology hates her, but I’m beginning to suspect her secretarial skills aren’t the reason she wants to work at my company.

Part of me wants to fire the agency for wasting my time and send Colette and her sassy smile packing.

The other part of me has very different ideas of what do with her.

Is there more to her than her smart mouth, tight skirt, and high heels?

What does she really want from me?

Introducing a brand-new series by USA Today bestselling author Serenity Woods.

These mouthwatering morsels come with Serenity’s guarantee – no cheating, no cliffhangers, heaps of romance and sizzling love scenes, gorgeous alpha male heroes, spirited modern heroines, and always the best happily-ever-afters!

Like a Boss is the first series featuring four office romances.

Taking Charge is a short, quick paced, light hearted, sexy office romance between a short term PA and an alluring co-owner with an emotional/good feeling sideline with an instant attraction. You do have to be open-minded to enjoy this novella as, while there is a little development, the length of the book doesn’t allow for heaps of development between the two characters and plays out only over a couple of days. With the dual point of view, however, you do get a good understanding to the attraction and fast paced relationship with feelings is mutually developing, even if it is completely unexpected for both characters. If you can be open, this is definitely one sexy read that is perfect for a quick read that is easily read in one go!

5.0 out of 5 stars hot, sexy, week with the boss.... 14 May 2017
By Gatorfan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A standalone read with a HEA. First in a series of short, sexy, stories. I really liked it. A young woman takes on the job as temp to a very rich, smart and gorgeous co-owner of a high tech company. They are getting ready to go into trials to test a new device that will change the lives of deaf people. She is the worse secretary ever. She can't type, file, organize or even make coffee. One has to wonder why she ever applied for this job. However, she does have a way about her and she manages to hold on to the job past the first day.

The boss is the hero in the story. He is a sexy hunk and has his pick of women and all for very short periods of time. He doesn't seem to be in in hurry to commit. She walks through the door and he looses his power of speech. He has a reputation for being difficult and hard to work for so he is use to intimidating secretaries and making them cry. However, she seems to not be effected by his deadly glare when he complains about her being late on her first day. She has no problem standing up to him and shocking him.

they are quite the pair. Inside she is scared to death he is going to fire her. But she puts up a brave face. They only have a week together so things move along rather quickly. It appears she has a big secret - it is NOT that she is attracted to him. She lets him know in no uncertain terms that she wants him. However, there is a no-banging the secretaries rule. One he is about to break. Things get hot and heavy really quick. I would suggest you read this book in a cool spot!!! The heat is definitely turned up.

It is a good story and like some of Ms. Woods' books in the past she takes on a disability that effects millions. It is a very good story and I definitely recommend it. It is a fun, sexy, romp through a week with a very sexy boss!! I have already pre-ordered #2 in this series.

I was not paid for my review. I am not an author nor am I kin to this one. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less.
5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 16 May 2017

Taking Charge is a sexy little story. Lust flares instantly between Sebastian and Colette. Neither one wants a relationship but hot, hot wanton sex is something they both want. Who says office romances are a bad idea?

At first, Colette seems totally incompetent but I quickly realized that wasn't the case. She is an intelligent, take no crap, sassy woman. Sebastian has definitely met a woman, other than his sister, who won't be intimidated by him. Sebastian initially comes across as a man married to his job who thinks relationships are a waste of time. It soon became clear he was a caring, sex on a stick, sensitive man. HAWT!!!

This is the first book in a new series of office romances called Like A Boss. I can't wait to read the next one. If you like sexy reads written with humor and an interesting storyline this is the book for you. Grab your copy and have a fan nearby to cool down your e-reader... and you!
5.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced, fun romance 14 May 2017

Sebastian and Colette embark on a path where neither are sure how it will end.

This is a fast paced, sexy romance with minimal angst. How do you feel guilty when your motive is purely altruistic? Colette manages to feel guilty.

Sebastian was the quintessential alpha male. Colette was the strong, independent, sassy female. Together, they were an explosion waiting to happen.

Quick, easy, fun, and humorous. I would absolutely recommend it.

I liked the book, the characters and how they worked out their problems. Serenity is a favorite author of mine and she can definitely tell a good story. Harry & Gabby find that they each have needs and the other one does a great job of filling those needs.They just have to realize what their one night fling is! I was given this Advanced Readers Copy to voluntarily read and review honestly. I would recommend this book.

Sebastian and Colette nearly burn the pages alive in this fun, sensual romance. I loved Colette's snarky humor and Sebastian's alpha dominance in the bedroom.

The story is interesting and fast tempoed and I enjoyed the other characters as well even though they were mostly in the background.

This is a keeper and I know I will be reading it again and again.
