Kellan James is unwinding at his favorite bar when he spots the last person he’d ever expect to see there. Sara Connelly—ER nurse, do-gooder, charitable crusader, and frequent pain in his ass. Both grew up privileged in swanky Southampton, but that’s where the similarities end. Kellan’s made it his mission to seek out life’s pleasures, and Sara gains pleasure from lecturing him on his lifestyle.

He would never date someone like her.

But when Kellan discovers Sara’s been stood up by her date, a fierce protectiveness awakens inside of him. Typically, he would enjoy teasing her, but something in Sara’s face sends him over to her table with a plan. He encourages her to take a walk on the wild side, one weekend of sin—with him—no holds barred.

She accepts, but it quickly becomes apparent that once isn’t enough. As the pull between them grows stronger, Kellan realizes it’s a very dangerous thing to say never...

Seducing The Boss was a fast paced lighthearted romance that was equally steamy and sweet. This is the first book that I have read from Mari Carr and it definitely won't be my last....

5 - "Never say never." Stars!

Being the first book I have read by this author, I have to say I was mightily impressed by Seducing the Boss, it may have been short, but it was perfectly formed.

I think the main thing that stood out for me, is the fact that Mari Carr took me back to the days where you w ...more

Mari Carr wastes no time in showing her reader what awaits them in Seducing the Boss and whilst may be a little heavy on the tropes, they're done well and Kellan and Sara bring plenty of hot and steamy goodness.

I really enjoyed reading Seducing the Boss, it was one of those books you didn't want to put down.

Seducing the boss was a steamy, hot, sexy novel with a whole heap of sweet, feel good mixed in. It’s been a while since I have read a book that was just so easy. The characters were well developed for a book this length and I genuinely liked them both.

The blurb is a little misleading or maybe it’s ...more

SO, this little book was quite surprising to me...

First, I didn't expect the story-line to be so completely well unfolded for us in such a short amount of pages. But it was.

Second, I expected the over-used trope of let's get this sex thing out of our system just this once and then never look back t ...more

This boy is just what I needed after so many bad reads. It's a friends to lovers book with zero angst. Just a little pushing from the hero towards the end but that was fast wrapped up. He was alpha, strong and sweet. She was not a doormat or a pushover. A normal, regular woman who had expectations l ...more

This was a short, quick enjoyable read about lifetime friends falling in love unexpectedly. I have to admit, I didn't think anything really stood out about this story until I got to the second half of the book. I struggled a bit in the beginning because I had a hard time thinking Kellan just suddenl ...more

Hello, hotness!! I should have known, after having read several of Mari Carr’s books, that I was going to get a little hot and bothered reading Seducing the Boss. And really, I did know.

With a BRAZEN book, I'm always guaranteed a sexy good time, and that is just what Mari Carr gave me in her latest release, SEDUCING THE BOSS.

That was the first "medical" romance I've read in a long while. I loved that while Kellan worked in the hospital, he wasn't a doctor...he was the dreaded hospital CEO who did the Board's dirty work. Sara is the head ER nurse and a long time friend of Kellan. They have explosive chemistry but manage ...more

So when I say I’m a brazen junkie, I mean I’m a die-hard addict that automatically buys before I even bother reading the blurb. If it’s a new brazen release then it’s in my pre-order list. I knew I would love Seducing the Boss from the very first chapter because the pages were heating up from the ve ...more

A friends with benefits offer that was only going to be a hook up, that turned into a 3 day affair. It should have been cut and dried for Kellan and Sara.
