Review: Sleeping with the Boss (Anderson Brothers #1) by Marissa Clarke

My rating: star star star star

Heat rating: Flame  Flame  Flame

A satisfying category romance from Entangled’s brand new Lovestruck imprint…

Seducing the enemy has never been so tempting…

For the last five years, bookish Claire Williams has been living for the dying. Now that her stint as caretaker is over, she’s off to see the world. She needs quick cash first, so a temp job at Anderson Auctions seems perfect, especially with the unexpected benefits, including the hottest man she’s ever laid eyes—or hands—on.

Former Marine William Anderson has been burned one time too many. His military training makes him the perfect man to flush out the spy undercutting his family business, but no amount of training can prepare him for the kind of undercover work he’ll have to do when the sexy new temp is implicated. Desire lands them in bed…but duty may cost him his heart.

I love the Entangled Lovestruck imprint almost as much as I love the Harlequin Romance imprint. They are fun, flirty romances focusing on the couple, giving me plenty of heart warming romance for a warm, satisfying read.'

This story has all the elements of a good romance that I love. Great heroine, wonderful hero, no muss, no fuss, great relationship building and general all around feel good stuff.

Claire is a great heroine. I love Claire. She's raw, honest, real and funny. She's a genuinely kind and caring person who is optimistic even though life has dealt her a raw deal. She doesn't wallow in the past but looks forward with hope for the future. When she meets Will, even though she knows she shouldn't, she decides to give in to the attraction because she wants to live and experience life and love. I loved that about her. My heart stuttered at one point when she unselfishly sacrifices her own happiness for someone else and her selflessness made me love her all the more. Fortunately, Will saw beyond her sacrifice and went after her in a spectacular fashion.

Then there's Will. What is there not to love about Will? A hot, handsome, filthy rich ex-Marine who has been burnt by love. You know he's just waiting for the right woman to come along and heal his heart. He's strong, kind, direct and goes after what he wants, and what he wants is Claire. Some of my girlfriends (I'm looking at you, Bambi) love a bad boy or an asshole, but not me. I love a good guy, a nice guy, and Will is just an all round nice guy, so there's plenty about him I love. He's definitely a guy of grand gestures and is every girl's fantasy, if what he does for a first date and a weekend away is any indication (I won't tell you what it is and spoil it for you!), but gee, it must be nice to be filthy rich. There's a scene on the airplane and what Michael (his brother) says about it afterwards ... Cracked me up!

An all around, very enjoyable read. I'm looking forward to the next Anderson brother.
