USA Today bestselling series
Good things come in extra-tall, smoking hot stilettos.
Things like Jocelyn Jones.
Jocelyn “Ice Queen” Jones is the hottest agent in town, and I’m determined to make her mine. My agent, that is. She’s the best at what she does, which is why I’m intent on keeping our relationship strictly platonic, even if the sexual tension between us is thick enough to slice with a skate. After all, I already have a woman in my life. My daughter, Charli, and we’re not sure if there’s room for someone else.
Until Jocelyn Jones breaks all the rules. She lets her icy exterior begin to melt, treating me to a view no man has ever seen before. Suddenly, I’m no longer certain if I want to be on her roster, or in her bed—for good.
Tangling business with pleasure has never been on the agenda. Then again, neither has falling in love.
They say it’s bad business to sleep with the boss.
But they haven’t met Jocelyn Jones.

This is a full-length, standalone romantic comedy with an HEA. It is intended for audiences 18+ due to mature content including romance, language, and ridiculously fun times.
Jocelyn “Ice Queen” Jones lives for her career. She’s spunky, intelligent, and prepared to do everything she has to do to get Landon Boxer on her roster of clients. Jocelyn is one of the finest sport agents in the business. She worked hard to move up the ladder. She has a take no prisoner attitude. (Perhaps why she’s thought of as the “ice queen.” There are more vulgar names for her, but she doesn’t care.) So when “Boxer” isn’t interested, she’s bewildered. She realizes he’s peculiar.
Landon Boxer doesn’t need not be a rich hockey star. He lives for 2 things—his daughter Charli and ice cream. Boxer knows he will make a tough choice soon because his present agent is retiring. Boxer’s very attracted to Jocelyn. He doesn’t think he can have a business relationship with her. Charli brings out Jocelyn’s softer side, and they click. His daughter keeps him on his toes, so she has a lot in common with Jocelyn.
First, Jocelyn tries to win Charli over with a barbie which goes flat because Charli’s more of a tomboy. I loved Jocelyn and Charli’s unique bond. Charli’s sensitive because she’s always afraid someone will take her daddy away. Boxer has to be home every night to read her Rapunzel. Jocelyn hasn’t had fun since she was a Charli’s age. She forgot what the phrase meant.
As for Boxer and Jocelyn, well there’s a lot of chemistry and sexual tension. They both walk on egg shells waiting for the other to break down and confess. Like a game of mercy? Their chemistry is immediate. What’s astounding is they don’t just hop in bed together like a typical romance story. They date first but they plan some fun stuff when they go on a business/Landon got an underwear endorsement trip. Landon teaches Jocelyn money isn’t everything. Sometimes the basic things count more.
Boss Girl is a lighter romance. No need for the tissues because you won’t be ugly crying. The story is angst light. The humor, entertaining characters, and swoony love covers up most of the angst. You’ll fall in love with Boxer, Jocelyn and most of all Charli. She’s absolutely an adorable character, and way too smart/perceptive for her age. Overall you’ll enjoy Boss Girl, however there’s not as much humor as Delivery Girl.
