Erryn reviews ‘Bossy’ by N.R. Walker. The book was published on March 4, 2021, 277 pgs. The audio was released May 14, 2021, was narrated by Glen Lloyd and is 7hrs and 24mins.
Why I read this book: I loved Upside Down so wanted more of this author/narrator duo.
Michael Piersen isn’t up for complications. He’s one of Sydney’s fastest-moving career-focused corporate realtors, and the only thing he has time for is one-night stands with zero fuss.
Bryson Schroeder’s back home from two years overseas with plans to leave his family’s hotel empire and begin his own business ventures. Out with friends to celebrate his return, he sees a gorgeous blond man across the bar, and with merely a smile and a raised eyebrow, they leave together for a night of incredible chemistry.
The rules are clear: no names, no details, no complications.
But one night becomes one more night, and eventually the arrangement suits them both for weeks…until their professional and personal worlds collide. With their hearts already on the line, Michael and Bry need to decide just how complicated they want to get.
What started out as a one-night stand quickly becomes more in this enjoyable listen by N.R. Walker. I always love her books, and this one was no exception. You’ve got Michael, the driven real estate executive who’s on the fast track, and nothing is going to derail him. He enjoys no-strings attached relationships. Plain and simple, he loves sex without those messy emotion things.
Bryson is newly back to Australia after a great time in Singapore. He’s expected to train in the family business so he can one day take it over. But he has dreams of his own, and nothing is going to derail them. So yeah, sex to celebrate coming home is a great idea. I mean, he’s never going to see the guy again…right?
Yet the chemistry can’t be denied. So they hook up again. And again. It takes several of these nights before they even exchange phone numbers and even longer before they exchange names.
Of course I knew the anonymity wasn’t going to last. Each man was becoming more and more invested in the relationship. Their one date night kept expanding as they spent more time together. Then the personal crashed headlong into the professional and suddenly things are way more complicated.
By then they’re falling for each other. Complicated becomes okay. I loved how each man supported the other in their career choices. I also loved the humor which is ever-present in Ms. Walker’s books. Speedos and parents, anyone? And I got the ending I so desperately wanted so all was right in the world.
Glen Lloyd narrated the story and he did a great job. He helped me sink right into the story. I’m always anticipating the next book, and I’m hoping there are more with this combo.
N.R. Walker is an Australian author, who loves her genre of gay romance. She loves writing and spends far too much time doing it, but wouldn’t have it any other way.
She is many things; a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer. She has pretty, pretty boys who she gives them life with words.
She likes it when they do dirty, dirty things…but likes it even more when they fall in love. She used to think having people in her head talking to her was weird, until one day she happened across other writers who told her it was normal.
She’s been writing ever since…
