WHY I READ IT
I was really interested in the female boss angle.
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
Monica Morgan is off limits. 100% untouchable.
Too bad I didn’t know it when we met.
We were just two people in a club, drawn together by chemistry.
Hot, SIZZLING chemistry.
Imagine my surprise when I find out she’s my new boss.
Now that we work together, she’s determined to keep it professional.
My problem? I can’t forget the night we met.
I know there’s a sexy siren under that prim and proper exterior. She tries to bury that side of herself away, but I want to be the man to show her it’s okay to be professional AND sexy.
I’ve felt the magic we can make when she loses control.
Because I’ve already touched her. And I want to do it again.
Untouchable was a decent debut novel from new author Isabel Love. Told in alternating POV’s, Love gives us the story of Max and Monica, who meet on a crowded dance floor, but don’t exchange names. Little do they know, just a few weeks later, they will be working together, with Monica as Max’s boss.
I love forbidden stories, and this one had a nice twist with the woman as the boss. Even with a seven year age difference, Max seemed years more mature than Monica in many ways. Max was a lot of fun to read. He was confident, just short of cocky, but he wasn’t afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve for Monica. Monica, on the other hand, was a mess. Feeling like she has something to prove, she avoids Max’s advances because she is worried what it will say to her employees if she is dating someone on her staff. She also knows her overbearing, jerk of a father will not approve, and make life difficult for Monica if she pursues a relationship with Max.
I liked, but didn’t love this story. While I liked Max and Monica as individuals, I just didn’t feel the connection between them. The sex scenes were hot, but I was missing the chemistry, the butterflies, the anticipation. It was just words on the page, and I never found myself getting lost in the story. This particular story may not have been for me, but I look forward to what Love gives us in the future.
