Book Tour Review + Giveaway ~ Trusting The Boss (Billionaires in the City #4) by Mallory Crowe

Trusting The Boss (Billionaires in the City, #4)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: June 19th 2015


Billionaire heiress Emma Devaroux has been living a safe-yet-mundane existence in Georgia for too long, but when she learns her sister, Joslyn, has been arrested, she heads to New York City to find out what really happened. Unfortunately, as an unemployed debutante, she’s not exactly qualified to be leading an investigation. But help is at hand in the form of the handsome, former military man Jace Lance who happens to be the one who got her sister arrested in the first place. 

Jace thinks Emma is crazy for even considering working with him since he’s the one who stopped Joslyn from killing his former client. However, he can’t deny that the sexy southerner is in over her head when her tycoon cousins try to hire him to make sure Emma doesn’t find out the truth about what really caused her sister’s murderous actions. 

As they begin to uncover the truth together –and get to know each other intimately – it becomes clear that the more answers they get, the more danger Emma is in. Jace is determined to protect her, but how can he keep her safe when her whole family is in on the conspiracy?

My Opinion

Once again this broke away from the pattern of the previous books. Whilst it followed the same line as book 3, whereby the woman was the one who had the money, there was no corporate/business side to things. Emma is wealthy from inheritance and it made for a nice change of pace I think.

Trusting the Boss is my favourite of the whole series. I know I've said this with every book since Teasing the Boss, but in my opinion the writing and plots became better as the series went on.

I always like hot bodyguards in books, and that's exactly what Jace was. I liked how his protective desire increased as his feelings became real and I believed he really did care about Emma. Similarly, I'm glad that Emma put more importance on her life. In book 3 Victoria didn't so it was an improvement.

As for the story there are some plot holes. With the whole series you have to suspend reality and not question the stories too deeply. There are decisions that are made that seem stupid or out of character to purely get the book to the action and tie the story up. It's not always that believable, and not everything is worked out in detail, but it's still enjoyable.

Similarly, this author doesn't exactly tie everything up. The H/H get their ending but she always forgets the secondary characters. What did Luke and Michael do? How did they? Why did Joslyn do what she did? There are always questions I'm left with.

Anyway, overall these are easy reads. You shouldn't think too hard over them and they're good to kill a few hours.

“Here’s what’s going to happen. You’re going to turn around and go up those 

stairs. Once you’re out of here, you’re going to forget you ever met me and 

pretend that there’s nothing Victoria Green can tell you that you don’t already 


A deep anger settled in her gut at the idea of this virtual stranger telling her 

what to do. “And if I don’t?”

Jace leaned in, until his face was inches from hers. “Well, for starters, I will 

throw you over my damn shoulder and carry you out of here until you’re far 

enough away I’m sure you’ll leave me alone. Think I’m bluffing?”

For a long moment, Emma debated the merits of slapping Jace right in his 

smug face. Screw slapping—punching would be much more effective. 

“What’s it gonna be, Georgia? Are you walking out on your own or do you 

need assistance?”

Emma shook her head. Jace wasn’t worth the bruised knuckles. “I’d rather 

avoid being touched by a Neanderthal, thank you very much,” she said in her 

sweetest voice, laying her natural accent on a bit thicker than normal. 

If he wanted to get rid of her, fine. She’d leave gracefully. Her anger 

simmered just beneath the surface as she walked up the stairs. Let him win the 

battle. But she sure as hell wasn’t going to give up and when all was said and 

done, she’d win the war.
