“Will you do me the greatest honor of all time and be my bridegroom?” she asks, hope in her eyes . . .
How did I get here? My assistant, bent on one knee, holding my hand, her expectant face waiting for an answer.
Just . . . how?
How did I go from being insulted by Charlee Cox to hiring her to be my assistant? How is it that she’s chaos in color – making me crazy and my life better at the same time?
I never thought I would be staring down at her bright blue eyes begging me to go along with this ridiculous scheme I suggested.
Yes, I suggested. Like the idiot I am, I thought hey, why not start an HR nightmare and have my assistant ask me to marry her?
Confused? Don’t worry, so am I.
But try to follow along, because this is how I became Boss Man Bridegroom.
“This kiss was sweet, short, nothing that would blow anyone’s socks off…besides mine. Because even
though it only lasts a few seconds, its within those seconds that I get my first taste of her. It’s where
I get to feel myself tip over the edge into falling for this girl. I’ve had many first kisses. Aggressive,
passionate, consuming, but nothing like this. Nothing this sweet, this….understanding. Nothing that
has ever made me want to drop all my defenses and expose my true self to a woman. And that’s
scary. Terrifying actually. Because if a kiss this simple can turn my world upside down, what’s going
to happen when I feel her tongue against mine, when she kisses me longer, when I get to feel her
delectable body against mine? Was Roark right? Am I screwed?”
“I was born with a piece of your soul inside me and I want to claim it. Right here, right now.”
2020 might have just started, but I’ve already got a book on my tops reads of 2020 list. Boss Man Bridegroom is intense, combustible and will leave you in stitches. Just spend a couple of minutes with this story and these characters and you’ll why I fell head over heels in love with this story!
Boss Man Bridegroom follows the story of Charlee & Rath. From the moment I dug into their story, I was utterly hooked. Charlee is quirky, lively and so unique. She is like sunshine on a cloudy day, the rainbow when you need it the most. And then you have Rath. Rath is the serious business man with a heart of gold. But, when he is around his friends, the real Rath breaks loose. The read Rath is hilarious, a total frat boy. These two couldn’t be more opposite, yet somehow, they just work. Their road to happily ever after is filled with hilarious antics, an outrageous personality, a meddling grandma and so much more. Boss Man Bridegroom is not only hilarious, but is filled with a lot of heart. If you’re a fan of romantic comedies, I promise you won’t want to miss Boss Man Bridegroom.
Boss Man Bridegroom took my heart on an intense roller coaster ride and gave me all the feels. Rath & Charlee were off the charts in every possible way. It was impossible to not fall in love with these characters right away. I loved how intense and quirky Charlee was. Yes, she had some insecurities, but for the most part, she just embraced who she was. And her grandma was a total riot. I loved her quirkiness as well and I loved her meddling ways. There is just something about meddling grandmas that gets me every single time. And Rath, man did I just love him. When he wasn’t be a jerk, he was utterly swoon worthy. He tried hard to stay away from Charlee, but let’s face it, that woman is a force to be reckoned with. And I absolutely loved the bromance between Rath and Bram. Those two men were ridiculous in the best possible way.
Together, Rath and Charlee were the ultimate couple. They were complete opposites, yet had so many similarities. Together, they were intense and combustible. I was left hanging on each interaction, dying to see just how their story would play out. And, I will tell you this, these two do not disappoint.
Boss Man Bridegroom is the perfect romantic comedy. It seriously was everything that I want and need from romance. Add in that it was funny, as well as an office place romance with a fake fiancee and this book was seriously everything!! It was romantic. It was funny. It was totally unforgettable. I laughed. I had tears in my eyes. And boy did I ever swoon. I seriously loved each and every second of this book and never wanted it to end.
Megan Quinn has totally knocked my socks off with this book!! It is definitely on my list of top reads for 2020 and I look forward to re-reading this book again.
*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*
“Rath Westin, my boss, my commander in chief, my Gucci Governor—”
“I don’t wear Gucci.”
“Go with it.” She winks and clears her throat. “Mr. Big Shot, Barking Britches, and Irritable Ira—”
“Jesus . . . Christ.” I rub my hand down my face.
“Will you do me the great honor . . .” She wobbles on her bent knee and clutches my hand to steady herself. “Will you . . .” She tears up, her voice becoming shaky. “I’m sorry, I’ve never done this before.”
“I sure as hell hope not,” I say through gritted teeth.
“And I didn’t think I’d get emotional either.” On a deep breath, she finishes, “Will you do me the greatest honor of all time and be my bridegroom?”
Christ, nothing is ever simple with her.
“Why did you say it like that?”
“Did I not do it right?” she mumbles to herself. “See, I knew I was doing something wrong.”
“No, why did you say bridegroom?”
“Oh, well, that’s what you would be. You see, that’s what they used to call men who were soon to be married . . . a bridegroom. But then somewhere along the way they shortened it to groom. But if you marry me, I would give you the dignified pleasure of retaining the honorable title of bridegroom.”
“Don’t call me bridegroom.”
“Boss man bridegroom?” she asks with a cheeky grin.
How the fuck did I allow myself to get in this position? With my quirky and sometimes annoying but mostly efficient assistant, kneeling in front of me . . . proposing.
Proposing to me.
In a pair of belly-covering slacks and suspenders, hair pulled back into a tight bun like she often wears it, looking up at me through her red-framed glasses, her bright blue eyes shining past the lenses, begging me to go along with this ridiculous scheme I suggested.
Like the goddamn idiot I am, I thought hey, why not start an HR nightmare and have my assistant ask me to marry her?
Don’t worry, so am I.
Where do I even start? Maybe from the beginning?
Here is a quick rundown: my ex, who used to work with me, left me for bigger and better things. We don’t talk about her, ever, because she took my heart with her. Instead, I buried myself in my work. I became a hermit in my office, firing one assistant after another because they weren’t good enough or their voice annoyed me, or they thought salt was sugar and gave me one bad cup of coffee that ended their career at Westin Enterprises—that mistake was on them.
In my spare time—not that there’s much—but when I do have spare time, I follow my two idiot friends around the city, helping them avoid fucking up their lives. But now that they’re both in loving and committed relationships, one planning a wedding with my sister as the bride, I have much more time on my hands.
Maybe they’re to blame for my demise, for this ridiculous charade I’m now a part of.
What does this have to do with my assistant proposing to me?
Well, you see, I was in the market for yet another new assistant, and that’s when one of my best friends, Bram, suggested I lean on his assistant, Linus, to help me find someone. Side note: Linus is a gift from God, and I’ve offered him huge pay raises many times to jump ship and join my company, but his loyalty lies with Bram . . . unfortunately.
So Linus helped me find an assistant, and that’s where it started to go downhill.
The minute I saw her, I knew it wasn’t going to be a good fit.
Because she’s too goddamn beautiful.
Because she’s far too bubbly.
Because with every smile and checklist she devises, she makes me want to bend her over my desk and make her mine.
But, since I clearly don’t know how to make any decisions worth a shit, I hired her, right there on the spot.
And that was the beginning of the end.
Need to know more? Well in case you are on pins and needles about my answer to her proposal, I said yes.
Here’s the story of how I became Boss Man Bridegroom.
