Former Chicago cop Mingus Black is used to liars. So why does the PI believe a teacher who insists she’s being framed? Joanna Barnes is totally convincing…in more ways than one. The chemistry between Mingus and Joanna becomes perilously potent, but until he can find out who framed her for a heinous crime, everything they love hangs in the balance.

“We play by my rules now.” —Kit, the new boss
Who does Kit Walker think he is? The trust-fund heir waltzes in and wants to boss me around, but if I catch him misbehaving, his father will yank his inheritance. Stalemate, right? Not when our chemistry is irresistible! Ironically, we run the top dating app. Could this be my “perfect match”…or the perfect scandal? —Alexandra, the one in charge
BOSS is one of my favorite tropes. Plus add enemies to lovers and you can not go wrong. This latest read from Katy Evans is tame. Not what I was expecting.
With Alexandra Croft its all work and success. For years, she has become the best web designer for Cupid’s Arrow, an online dating app. Yet when her boss Alastair announces his retirement it becomes her duty to guide his son and make sure he is groomed to be the new CEO. A crazy scenario considering why not make her acting CEO instead? Imagine that story??!!!
Alex is smart, sexy and determined to build her perfect life. Suddenly she’s tempted by a man who’s totally off-limits – her new delicious boss – Kit Walker.
Emotions run high as Kit’s infuriating presence causes sparks to fly both in and out of the office. But a vicious smear campaign may prevent Alex and Kit’s happy ever after.
In closing, I believe the Desire platform prevents the hotness and bad boy vibe I want from Katy Evans. I was introduced to her via Manwhore and its that spicy, explosive banter I want in my romance. If you have not read Katy Evans, this would be a great introduction. However, the heat she is known to generate comes from her titles in the Real and Manwhore series. Check them out also.
Katy Evans is the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of over a dozen novels, starting with her blockbuster debut romance, Real. She writes sexy contemporary romances with smoldering hot alpha males.
