Description: Nicole–Baby Girl to her co-workers, even though she’s not that young–barely manages to put up with her grumpy boss, Marty. That is, until she gets into a terrible car accident and he unexpectedly comes through. Could this be a case of mistaken intentions, or is Nicole’s mean boss the perfect guy for her?
The Good: This book is a highly romantic read, with one of my favorite tropes, damaged people–in this case literally and figuratively–finding healing in each other. I love that the heroine and the hero get to see each other at their worst, and Ms. Pace does a great job of illuminating the vulnerable people under their hard shells. There’s also a nice emotional mystery running through the story. You’ll be dying to know what’s made these two people the way they are. The answers are very satisfying, as isthe epilogue. BABY GIRL AND THE MEAN BOSS is well worth its small price.
The Bad: See editing.
The Naughty: Steamy. Lots of sexual tension. Masturbation.
Editing issues: Several typos. Adverb abuse.
