Sometimes you have to break the rules…
When Camilla Anderson loses her job just as a position at Talbot Inc. opens up, there's no way she's questioning the lucky break. Working for the quirky, reclusive CEO will pay off her student loans within a year, and they're flying to Europe in his private jet.
Mason Talbot isn't good at talking to women. Well, to anyone, really. But when his new lawyer boards his plane, biology kicks in. But he can't tell if her adverse reaction is to him or his painfully awkward attempts at flirting.
As the flight gets bumpier, Mr. High IQ gets calmer. And…he holds her hand? Maybe the guy is redeemable after all. As soon as they land, she'll have to teach her endearingly awkward new boss how to seduce a girl properly.
That is, if they don't die in a fiery plane crash first.
Tempting the New Boss by Angela Claire is different from any Brazen book I’ve read. And that difference, in my opinion, makes this a very unique story. This book will make you see things a little differently, and have you questioning your own interactions with people.
Mason Talbot isn’t your typical hero, at least not any I’ve read. Mason is clueless and funny, without trying to be. At times, he’s even sweet and adorable. In the early reading stages of Tempting the New Boss, I found myself laughing and I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to be. Mason definitely lacks social skills. As it turns out, self-made billionaire Mason Talbot has the characteristics of a person with Asperger’s Syndrome, but he doesn’t actually have it.
Camilla Anderson is like a coin. There are two sides to her and depending on what side you’re on determines which person you’re going to get. There’s the professional lawyer side, who is serious, all business, and focused on making sure her loans get paid off. Then, there’s the fun, throwing caution to the wind side. This side drinks until she’s tipsy and is a seductress.
Sparks fly when these two reach cruising altitude on a transAtlantic flight. When their plane crashes and it’s just the two of them, they’re able to connect emotionally and physically. But, once rescued, all the good vibes seem to disappear.
I love that Mason is different from other heroes. He looks at things differently than most people do. And I think it takes a very special person to see just how great he is. At times, I really thought Camilla was that person. However, when her family gets involved, my faith in her does falter.
Tempting the New Boss has wonderful secondary characters. My favorites are definitely Joey (Camilla’s younger brother) and Marcia (Mason’s assistant). As I mentioned before, this isn’t your typical Brazen book. However, Mason is an amazing hero. He’s so much more than people give him credit for being.
Angela Claire has delivered an opposites attract duo that will make you laugh, cheer, and at times, bring you close to tears. Mason is definitely one of those characters who has made an impression on my heart.
