Bossy Grump: An Enemies to Lovers Romance (Bad Chicago Bosses) Kindle Edition
You know that awkward moment when your lava-hot boss says “marry me?”
Not for love. Not for real. Not without a mammoth payoff.
Of course, this fortune comes with a ginormous snag—Ward Brandt.
Call me bananas.
I must be short of a full bushel rejecting Chicago's finest billionaire.
Who knew he was my boss when he crashed my worst date ever?
Oh, but he found out.
He swore I wasn't fit for Brandt Ideas, chewed me up, and spat me back out.
I vowed I'd prove him wrong—and sabotage a metric ton of his coffee.
Then tragedy strikes, upending his limitless ego.
Guess who needs an image makeover to shore up the family business.
Big fat hell no.
King Snarlypants has a peanut-sized heart and a chip on his shoulder bigger than a redwood.
Find another sucker, Ward-hole.
Even if I agreed, my shields are up.
No magnetic kisses. Zero butterflies. Nix the blushing when everyone gushes over what a “perfect couple” we'd be.
Then again...it's just ninety days and mama needs a windfall.
What's one little white wedding lie with a bossy grump built like a god?
Full-length enemies-to-lovers romance loaded with banter, drama, and so much slow-burn heat you'll want that Happily Ever After shaken over ice. A storm cloud of a man stuffed into a suit strikes a deal with the girl whose smart mouth drives him to the ultimate madness called love.
"There's a truckload of family baggage onboard this runaway train, and the author's witty writing style still manages to deep dive into the emotional abyss as we get to the bottom of what's left of Ward's heart...I've never read a Nicole Snow book I didn't absolutely adore and this one is no exception." -Viper, Reviewer
"Off to a rocky start is an understatement. The push and pull of this couple had me snickering constantly." -Linda, Reviewer
"Nicole Snow does it again...I binged this book so hard. I may have even shed a tear and gasped a time or two and swooned quite a bit." -Brenda, Reviewer
"Too funny, I loved those emails! With a storyline as smooth as silk and characters that can be a little rough around the edges, this book hit it out of the park!" -Lisa Reviewer
"This book was pure enjoyment. The snarky humor, sizzling sparks, and witty banter really fly as Paige and Ward's story unfolds." - Gladys, Reviewer
"Character development is such an important factor in a book truly being wonderful, and in this story it's really top notch. There's so much more to the grouchy 'Warden' than the face he shows the world." -Denise, Reviewer

It’s a romance that leaves out no detail; irrespective of how small, insignificant, or needless that detail may be.
When I had read for about…100 years, and saw I was only to the 37% point, I almost cried. But, I kept trying.
I finally made it to the 50% before I saw what lay ahead….
At about the half-way point, I sadly realized ‘it’s beginning to look a lot like yet another Scooby Doo Mystery!’
Yay! How fun is that?
It’s beyond me, why a writer of ROMANCE feels that ‘romance’ isn’t enough.
Or why they feel like some goofy ‘suspense/thriller’ nonsense, is somehow, ‘better’. For me, it is not. Ever.
This had the foundation for a great enemies-to-lovers romance. But in her quest to….I dunno, see how far she could drag it out, I guess, the writer managed to snatch away any hopes of greatness, in favor of ‘suspense/thrills’ and….just dragging it out.
OMG THIS BOOK WAS TOO FUNNY, I LOVED THOSE EMAILS ! WITH A STORYLINE AS SMOOTH AS SILK AND CHARACTERS THAT CAN BE A LITTLE ROUGH AROUND THE EDGES, THIS BOOK HIT IT OUT OF THE PARK ! ! ! I LOVED WARD'S JEALOUSY AND HIS INNER DIALOGUE ! WITH NODS TO ENGUARD SECURITY AND HEARTS EDGE, I LOVED HOW THEY FIT TOGETHER PERFECTLY ! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK ! AN ABSOLUTE, DEFINITE MUST READ ! ! !

I enjoyed it worth a look.
This is Ward and Paige's story.
Both Ward and Paige are shaped by their past , both haunted that their past will be their future .
Ward fights not to be like his parents , and Paige hopes that she can find true love , and not end up being someone's place card , again .
There is a fine line between love and hate , or in Ward and Paige's case, hate and love . Past demons stand in the way , hearts need to break before they can be mended .
Such a great read
" I thought my heart never best normally again playing messed up Cinderella "
