Testing the Boss by Mallory Crowe – REVIEW

Testing the Boss by Mallory Crowe



Billionaire Luke Devereaux gets what he wants and what he wants right now is to bring down the shady organization threatening his family. Teaming up with the FBI is his only option–even if that option comes in the sultry Evelyn Price, the ice-princess who’s all business.

Refusing to be distracted by the sexy, rich playboy, Evelyn forces herself to stay focused on the case, gearing up for the criminal takedown of her entire career. As the enemy closes in with Evelyn as its next target, it’s up to Luke to keep them out of danger. The more they work to protect each other, and fight for control, the harder it is to resist their undeniable attraction.

And the one thing Evelyn has learned from working with him is that Luke Devereaux gets what he wants.


3.5 Stars

This book was full of suspense, steamy scenes, off the charts chemistry and a fantastic role reversal. Instead of the tough alpha guy being the protector, it was a bad-ass female FBI agent keeping Luke safe and kicking ass.

My Thoughts

This is a stand alone in the Billionaires in the City series, and while it can mostly be read by itself there were so many things happening and backstories weaved into the story that I think I would have benefited from reading the others first. I enjoyed the fast pace of the story and the banter through out the book. It was also refreshing that Luke was not an alpha billionaire that demanded everything and got pissy when he didn’t get his way. He may have stacked the deck to get his way but he wasn’t overly pushy and my way or the highway as so many are today.

This is the story of Luke Devereaux, a billionaire mixed up with white collar criminals and Evelyn Price, the tough FBI agent tasked with protecting/helping bring them down. They start the book fighting all the time and hating each other, which of course leads to smoking chemistry down the line. I didn’t really understand why they hated each other from this book, but maybe it was better explained in the previous book.

Things moved pretty quickly for the case and the duo’s slow burn of a relationship. Once they realized their attraction it was hard to ignore. So much so that Evelyn was distracted from her job and tried to step back to focus on the case. There was angst and drama and suspense right up until the very last page that kept you wanting to know what would happen next. That made this book a fun quick read.
