A Very Bossy Billionaire by Scarlett Avery
ABOUT THE BOOK
A sinful evening with your boss’s boss isn’t the recommended path for career advancement…
In the land of the size zero supermodel, as a full-figured woman, I don’t often catch the attention of a man that makes my toes curl. To add to the decadent encounter, the illegally hot stranger with a sexy British accent and dreamy hazel brown eyes wants to see me again.
Finally, finally I get to break my one-time coffee date curse.
Standing up Mr. Suit on our second date is the biggest Shakespearean tragedy ever. I didn’t mean to be a no-show. It was out of my control. Losing my phone was the nail in my coffin.
A week later, arriving at my new job and coming face to face with him, counts as one of the worst days of my life… that’s until I discover he’s my boss’s boss.
Turns out, my boss’s boss doesn’t appreciate being stood up without the curtesy of a call or a text. And boy, the man holds a grudge. Mr. Suit is determined to make me pay.
Note to self: Hell has no fury like a boss’s boss scorned…
USA Today Bestselling Author Scarlett Avery brings you an unapologetically sexy boss romance / office romance featuring a sassy full-figured heroine and a former all-star Euro soccer player turned hotter than hell billionaire boss who sits at the helm of a plus-size fashion empire.
Holy lady bits! I need a cigarette. Xavier “X-man” Keller has more game than ESPN and I have to admit it’s addicting. After all, who wouldn’t love a handsome retired football-slash soccer legend who loves curvy women?
From the hilarious and uncomfortable opening meet and greet with the sex-crazed social media influencer, Ms. Avery had me at the Eau de Vage perfume. When you are a gorgeous half-Brazilian, half-American retired soccer legend with a sexy British accent, you’re bound to have a long line of brazen women wanting a piece of that. However, Xavier Keller is out to prove himself as the new COO of his cousin’s curvy women’s fashion company and doesn’t have time for all the cra-cras. So when he spots the luscious and down-to-earth Adeline De Luca across the room, he is gobsmacked at his reaction to the beauty and vows to make her his. Their next meet-up is a bust when Adeline doesn’t show up due to extenuating circumstances, so Xavier thinks she stood him up. The next time they see each other is when Adeline shows up as the new executive assistant in his office and the games begin.
Adeline is a beautiful curvy woman who is sometimes self-conscious about herself especially surrounded by gorgeous models every day. Enter oh, so sexy, walking-suit porn, Xavier who worships Adeline to the point where she should have no doubts that this man can’t get enough of her. Adeline is the real deal and her wit and poise are commendable as she is asked to keep their affair quiet for a time while fighting the undeniable attraction between them. Xavier is sex on a stick with his naughty bad boy ways, but he is also so charming as witnessed by Adeline’s family with his well-thought-out and meaningful grand gesture.
I have no doubt you will get swept away by the wit, charm, and magnetism of Adeline and Xavier. The playful banter will keep you laughing and the shenanigans will keep you guessing about what will happen next.
Thank you to Ms. Avery for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I live in the Great North (aka Canada)!
I’m a USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR and an Amazon Bestseller author!
Here’s the reason I step into my dream every single morning when I wake up:
“Some books you read. Some books you enjoy. But some books just swallow you up, heart and soul.” — Joanne Harris (Author of the award-winning novel, Chocolat)
I muse about dangerously loving and fierce alphas and the sassy women who bring them down to their knees.
I write sultry, sensual and steamy romance novels, laced with kinks. I’ll admit my novels are scorching hot, but if you can’t push the boundaries between the pages of a book, it’s just not fun.
I’m constantly walking around with new stories/dialogues floating in my head. I consider myself lucky I get to spend my days dreaming up the most delicious alphas in romance. I love every minute of it!
On a personal note…
I have a serious love affair with Italian gelato, ice cream, pound cake, white chocolate and Macadamia nut cookies, peanut butter cookies, and Martinis. I could live off French or Italian charcuterie boards. California Chardonnay? Thank you, God!
Like most women, I have way more shoes than I need, but it’s so hard to resist getting new ones. If you’ve read my books, you know I have an obsession with high heels, hence the photo at the top. At 5’9, I hardly need more height, and God knows I can’t walk like a lady with anything higher than 2 1/2 inches, but I drool all over them, and admire women who can rock heels. That’s why I live vicariously through my main female characters who wear 4 and even 5-inch heels with elegance and poise.
I hold two University degrees in two different languages from two of the two prestigious international business schools. Just like Sofia and Ciara, the main female characters of my first two romance books, I speak several languages.
Since publishing my first book, I’ve been blessed with an insanely awesome group of faithful readers. I love those ladies so much. Their passion for my books makes the very, very long hours rewarding.
