Coldhearted Boss by R.S Grey | Book Review

- ARC provided for review -
I am such a huge fan of R. S Grey's books, she is hands down my favourite author and if you're a lover of rom-coms, you need to check her out immediately! This book surpassed all of my expectations, I'll tell you now, Coldhearted Boss was a five-star read and I loved it so much I'm reading it again today as I bought a copy too. 
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.

My Review 

I really want to keep this as spoiler-free as possible, you need to just trust me and read it as I don't want to ruin a thing! This book is rom-com, slow burn perfection. It is one of the slowest burning romances I have read but I didn't find it to be frustrating, I really enjoyed it. I adored the main characters, Taylor is such a tough girl and I honestly admired her, she doesn't quit. This book is dual perspective (my favourite) which made me like Ethan so much because even though it wasn't the nicest to Taylor, you get it and understand it all. The plot of the book was even better than I thought it was going to be, there is so much more to it and it was a little different than many of the other books from R.S Grey.

I loved the work environment and it's so much more than just a workplace romance and it's completely different than anything I have read when it comes to this. I loved that the book was set in the forest, it was something new and fresh to read that I thought was great for this time of year. What I loved, even more, was the living arrangements of Taylor and Ethan, it plays a big part in the story. The weekend that Ethan's friends come to stay are my favourite chapters, so much happens and it's a really fun time, I felt as if I was there. 

I have read almost all of R.S Grey's books, I am taking my time with the last three as I never want to run out. Having read them all, I would have to say that this is her best work to date! It was so well written and I am obsessed with it. I love everything about her books, Rachel is the rom-com queen and this book just became a new favourite!
