Sam Hunt is hellbent on making it on his own and stepping out of the shadows of his controlling and tyrannical family. But when Sam realizes that his father hired his former secretary, April Morgan, who quit on the spot after a slight run-in with his "fling of the week," Sam knows that something's not right. April is just another one of his father's pawns in one of his sick and twisted games.
However, April is on the fast track to success and has no interest in heeding Sam's warnings even though he's been the leading man in many of her nightly fantasies; she's got a job to do and she's going to do it. But when April realizes that Sam was right all along, she and Sam team up to take down their number one enemy: Sam's father.
Teaching the Boss was a well written contemporary romance. It hooked me in early on and kept me reading late into the night. Sam starts off as a bit of a playboy, but ultimately it’s revealed that he mostly uses these women—mutually—for publicity. It’s easy to fall in love with him right along with April. I actually enjoyed that the book didn’t start at the beginning of their relationship. They’ve known each other for six years, so this wasn’t a case of instant love. Their relationship progressed at a good pace. For once it was nice to see the alpha male listening to the advice of the heroine and not always thinking he was the only one who could be right.
