THE BACHELOR BOSS
By Sara Ney
Release Date: April 7
What is The Bachelors Club?
It’s a gentleman’s club—like the dignified men of the past used to have. Except, we’re not gentleman, and we’re not dignified.
We’re ineligible bachelors, bored, jaded and not looking for relationships. Quite the opposite actually. So committed to being single, we’ve created a high stakes bet to see who can remain single the longest…
Four days co-habitating in a shared work space shouldn’t be a big deal. It shouldn’t be distracting. But Spencer Standish saw me puking in a company trash can, and won’t let me live it down. Cheerful, aggravating Spencer, who wants me to fetch her coffee.
As if she’s the boss of me.
And now I’m stuck sharing her office.
Let’s face facts: I can’t be in a relationship; not when there’s a bet to win—not with Spencer, who loves my uncontrollable basset hound, lazy Sundays, and grilled cheese as much as I do. I refuse to fall for her.
I will be the last Bachelor standing.
Bachelor Boss is surprisingly sweet and cute, as Phillip is so utterly clueless and geeky you can’t help but fall in love with him.
With Brooks falling at the first hurdle in B~st~rd Bachelor Society the prize pot remains between the two remaining bachelors, with Phillip determined to win at all costs. I have to say I couldn’t really understand Phillip’s desperation to win, he wasn’t exactly planning on enjoying the spoils of war. It must be a man thing 😂
However, this is before temptation is thrown into Phillips path in the form of Spencer when he has to share an office with her during a refurbishment.
The sparks fly between them from the very first moment, even though Phillip’s intentional douche-tastic moments. Yet, Phillip and Spencer’s rough edges are smoothed when they are joined together. Spencer is a nurturer by nature and Phillip basks in the warmth of her giving nature. Soaking it up like a plant soaking up the sunshine after the winter.
Although Phillip puts up a valiant fight you know it’s going to be a futile effort because Spencer is perfect for him. For me watching Spencer and Phillip together makes me imagine two halves of a brain melding together – the whole right brain, left brain ideology – with Spencer being creative and optimistic while Phillip is logical and airs on the side of pessimism.
There is an even spread of sweet, funny and smexy throughout the narrative to make any reader fully invested in the happiness of both Spencer and Phillip, although I was actually rooting for Spencer all the way through. Sara Ney’s trademark humour brings the story to glorious life.
Although I will say Humphrey, Phillip’s Bassett Hound completely stole the show. You can even imagine the way in which Phillip would resemble a Bassett Hound 😂
