[ARC REVIEW] “Coldhearted Boss” By: R.S. Grey

I received a copy from the author for an honest review!!

Official Synopsis:

I’m desperate and destitute when Lockwood Construction rolls into my small town with an offer too good to pass up: high wages to any able-bodied man willing to join their crew.

Say no more. I throw on baggy clothes, tuck my long hair under a baseball hat, and apply for a job. Unfortunately, my half-baked idea of disguising myself as a guy is flawed from the beginning. As Shakira says, these hips don’t lie.

Still, I like to think I might have pulled the whole thing off save for one thing:

I know my boss.

Last month, we met at a bar, and after a fiery first encounter, it seems we’re destined to be sworn enemies.

Ethan Stone is ruthless and arrogant, a man I never would have crossed had I known how much he likes to toy with his prey.

He should just fire me and be done with it. Instead, he decides to make me his personal slave. Oh right, I think they’re calling it personal “assistant” these days.

It’s torture, all of it—his bad attitude, his ruggedly chiseled face, his desire to grind me into dust.

Every one of our friction-filled battles burns hotter than the last.

A girl can only hold out for so long. Soon, I’m bound to go up in flames.

My objective? Survive the heat long enough to send home a paycheck.
My real objective? Stop having X-rated fantasies about my coldhearted boss.

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars


This was such a lovely book! I received an ARC in exchange for a honest review, which I was extremely excited about, because I adore Rachel’s books! (This is her 7th I’ve read this year!)

The chemistry between Taylor and Ethan unfolds so nicely. I love how their story starts out, creating instant conflict between them. Their witty (aka savage) banter is so entertaining, and I didn’t want to put the book down! I especially liked when they were “forced” to be in the cabin together — writing always gets more interesting when the characters are forced to interact with each other, especially when tensions are running as high as they are in this novel.

Rachel’s books always have a ton of witty banter, and this one is no exception! I also adore the whole enemies-to-lovers trope, which this book has elements of. Due to the sexual content of the book, I’d recommend this book for 17+!

When Ethan’s friends came to visit I felt like I should know them from previous books! Since I haven’t read all of Rachel’s, let me know if I can read Ethan’s friends’s stories!

The real question is…did Ethan ever give Taylor that $800 back?
