The Boss Read-Along

This week Abigail asks about Chapter 7, “This chapter introduces Deja, a new character. Have you ever met someone you’d normally be threatened by, only to find that you really liked them? Do you have any predictions for Deja?”

And for Chapter 8 Abigail and Vampbard wonder, “Is it just us, or does sushi sound really good right now?” 

Discuss amongst yourselves!  Abigail and VampBard will be around to kick in their 2 cents until Tuesday!
About the Author
The alter-ego of USA Today Bestselling Author Jenny Trout (Jennifer Armintrout), Abigail Barnette was born during a conversation with author Bronwyn Green, who encouraged Jenny to develop an elaborate fantasy persona– complete with nom de plume– under which to pen erotic romance. Abigail enjoys long naps in fairy-filled glades, running through corridors in tragically romantic haunted castles, and drinking goblet after goblet of spiced wine.

  • Okay… So Chapter 7 is my favorite chapter to date! I loved the “good bye” scene as Sophie leaves Neil’s place. I also loved their dialogue. Deja is interesting… I hope she isn’t there to cause conflict between Neil and Sophie.

    As for Chapter 8… sushi is fun… But I’m never going to look at makeup products the same!! LOL I loved Sophie’s concerns over the new job – because in reality, if and WHEN someone finds out what’s going on… that’s what it’s going to look like – she got the job because she’s screwing the boss. I fear for Sophie as well!

    Love how this book is progressing!

  • I am curious to see how their Dom/Sub relationship develops. I hope it’s in the realm of treating the sex play as one big LARP/Chess mind game- because I think those are some of the most fun to read and people always seem surprised by it.

    I read once that BDSM is a smart person’s game- and while I don’t think Neil and Sophie will measure up to the Gamer/Comic/Manga/Computer Nerd Geeky-ness that I’m use to being surrounded by – they are both smart, independent people and it will be different to see them play without the heavy Nerdyness that I’m use to (different is good!).

    I think the sushi lunch was cutting it fairly close to the ‘screwing around at work and getting caught’ mark, but maybe that was the point.

    What time do these people start work normally? Because they both had a rather late sexy night and had to be at work- in the middle of the week- and this boggles my mind. But I’m also use to a work day starting at 4-5 am and ending at 5-6 pm. So no sexy dates for me during the week. It’s a 9am start for them, isn’t it? -_- That must be nice. Pardon me as I go plot their deaths now.
