Hating the Boss
I made a mistake the day I laid eyes on Ethan Riske.
What was supposed to be a summer romance became so much more.
I fell for the small town anti-prince…and I have the scars to prove it.
Nine years later, the prince is back—now as a big city publishing king.
Only this time he wants much more than a summer romance.
He wants my publishing company. My concession. And me.
His last letter was still on my desk, burning a hole in my brain. I wish I hadn’t opened it yet. But I did… I read it for the fortieth time, thinking of what the secluded CEO was thinking when he wrote it—a note so inappropriate it was bordering on sexual assault.
I read it again just to be sure.
Not because it turned me on. Nope.
I’m so flattered that you’re so concerned about what’s inside of my pants. Really, I am. But just so you know there’s nothing “tiny” or “childish” about me. I am, in fact, a big boy indeed.
It’s nice that you think you can play this game with me. In my household, we were born learning how to win, and this will be no different. Your empty threats mean less than nothing to me. And I will meet you but on my terms. Because this is my game, Katarina. My rules.
I’ve only let you on the board because you entertain me. You seem smart enough. If you were smarter, you’d walk away. My dad isn’t the “Daddy” you need to be worried about.
Silly rabbit. Tricks actually aren’t for kids…
