Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 11, 2022
The first time I met Merrick Crawford was during my job interview.
Well, technically, I’d met him twenty minutes earlier when he’d barged into a fitting room a few doors down from my appointment.
I yelled. He yelled. After an argument while standing in my bra, I proceeded to smash the door into the gorgeous jerk, trying to yank it shut.
As you might imagine, I was freaked out when I discovered that the rude guy was my potential new boss.
Yet he didn’t seem to recognize me. Or so I thought… Until we wound up bickering again during my interview and he told me to go sniff my armpit.
Okay, so maybe I hadn’t exactly been changing when he walked in on me. In my defense, I’d been stuck on a hot train for two hours and wanted to make sure I didn’t smell.
I obviously didn’t expect to get the job. But somehow an invitation to a second interview arrived in my inbox.
Before I left, I asked to see Merrick. I needed to know why I was even in consideration after our disastrous start.
Turned out, Merrick only wanted to hire me because I was the least competent candidate. It seemed his board was making him fill the position, against his wishes.
I didn’t really want to work in a place where my boss expected me to fail. But I figured maybe I’d enjoy proving him wrong. It was a little thing I dubbed the boss project.
What I wasn’t prepared for was that there would be other things I’d enjoy doing to Merrick Crawford.
Getting involved with the boss wasn’t the smartest choice.
But you know what they say about choices: Some we regret, some we are proud of. I just had no idea where this one was going to land.
Lita’s Book Review: 5 STARS
The Boss Project by Vi Keeland is another hilarious hit.

After several negative interviews she finds herself at an interview with the man that just saw her in her bra sniffing her pit while unbeknownst to her in the male changing room. Thinking this can’t get any worse he informs her she in not only not qualified for the job but he hates the ideal of having to hire anyone. Merrick is highly successful owner of a stock trading firm. Due to being sued by former employees, the board deems a therapist is need to help the employees. Merrick after discovering what Evie did thanks to YouTube decides to offer her the job. I laughed till I thought I would pee my pants. This story was also full of betrayal and heartbreak. Merrick too has been hurt and as his story unfolds I was left clutching the pearls. Seeing these two people trying to overcome their reservations and hurt made for a fabulous story. Read it in one sitting. Also the grandmother is off the chain. Loved it. Another 5 star read from this author.
The Boss Project
By Vi Keeland
Merrick and Evie’s past traumas are very similar but I loved seeing how different they responded to it. I enjoyed the few twists in the book and I did figure one out very quickly. (Of course I didn’t know until the end, shame on you Vi!! Lol) I love Merrick’s grandmother, she is so much fun. I feel like I repeat myself every time I read one of Vi Keeland’s books. It’s a must read. I read it in one sitting because I would not put it down. I always always always enjoy reading her books and this book is no different. I definitely recommend this book to everyone.
