Kinsley just wanted to have some fun for a change. Then she wakes up in a stranger’s bed, with her bridesmaid dress on backward and a hazy memory of what happened at her friend’s wedding. With a quick escape, she can get back to her predictable life. But then she meets her new boss—the same guy she’d woken up next to—and seeing him with a clear head doesn’t make him any less attractive.

Mixing business with pleasure has never been Damon’s style, and easily avoided, but the hotel he just bought comes with an unexpected perk—its manager. “Sensible” Kinsley today is as alluring as “impulsive” Kinsley was the night before, and she talks him into a deal. If she can turn around the hotel by the end of summer, he won’t tear it down to put up more profitable condominiums.

Their plan is simple…until falling for each other becomes more than they bargained for.

I know I'm probably in the minority, but this is exactly one reason why I don't drink--I don't want to wake up, not knowing if I did something dumb or not, haha.

After Sabine Durrant's LIE WITH ME I needed something sweet and fluffy, and I thought Jennifer Shirk's BARGAINING WITH THE BOSS would be the perfect choice. As it turns out, I was one hundred percent correct!

Throughout the entirety of BARGAINING WITH THE BOSS I was grinning from ear to ear! I ...more

The man cocked his head, his blue eyes dancing. “I hate to disappoint you, but I’m not Chris Hemsworth.” ~ Bargaining with the Boss

By Kim Reads July 25, 2018

If you were to ask me to rate Bargaining with the Boss immediately after reading it, I would have given the book 3 stars. For me, that would have been an unfair rating. My low rating would have stemmed from the fact that I didn’t like the childishness of the heroine, Kinsley Roberts. However, part o ...more

Bargaining with the Boss, by Jennifer Shirk, is so much fun. It’s a quirky, laugh-out-loud, swoony type of love story.

If you asked Kinsley’s ex-fiancé, he’d say she was “boring and predictable.” After she becomes single again, she somehow dives headfirst into a never-ending pool of embarrassing sit ...more

Kinsley has always been seen as the 'sensible' one, so waking up next to Mr. Gorgeous the morning after attending a wedding is the most irresponsible thing she's ever done, especially once she discovers he's also her new boss. Even worse, the hotel that once belonged to her family is now owned by hi ...more

3.5 Stars rounded UP

What a roller-coaster ride “Bargaining with the Boss” is!! A not-exactly one-night-stand turns into true love. It’s a common enough trope but the way the author weaves the plot is a delight! Without a doubt, this is my favorite of Jennifer Shirk’s books so far.

Kinsley Roberts is ...more

“Cute,” he said with a grin.
Her cheeks automatically ignited. Calm down, Kinsley. He didn’t call you a sex kitten. He called you cute. Even Dopey the Dwarf is considered cute.

There are times when you need a book that’s heavy on the erotic—that is dirty, kinky and explicit. Just like there are time ...more

Recently, her novel Sunny Days for Sam won the 2013 Golden Quill Published Authors Contest for Best Traditional Romance.
