He threw her inhibitions overboard.

Cruise director Michaela Western has everything she wants—everything except a sex life. But there are no secrets on cruise ships. She risked her job once for a dalliance with the Captain, and won’t do it again for a few minutes of toe-curling pleasure. Until a devilishly handsome new staffer with a body made for sin tempts her to walk on the wild side...

Investment billionaire Dylan Johns always gets what he wants. He is used to giving orders—not taking them—until he’s forced to go on hiatus from his investment company. To bide his time and carry out an old dream, he takes a job on a cruise ship—and ends up taking orders from his gorgeous, but uptight, new boss. He is determined to loosen her up with a fun onboard romance, but their no-strings fling turns serious and Dylan is forced to confess his lies.

When the affair threatens to shatter Michaela’s own career dreams, she finds herself caught between the devil and the deep blue sea.

When I first heard about this, I was like HELL YES. I mean, have you read the book's summary? Cruise ship, no strings fling that turns serious, and fun onboard romance? Yes please! Now, after I finished this read, I wasn't blown away by it, but it was still very enjoyable to read.

The characters do take a little time to warm to them and I have to admit by the very end, I still wasn't very interested in them. I liked them enough to want to continue reading, but nothing special. 

Out of all of the Indulgence lines from Entangled that I've read, this is probably my least favourite. I don't know whether it's the plot itself or the characters I couldn't connect or sympathize with, but I just wasn't feeling it, unfortunately.I also thought the misunderstanding/miscommunication throughout was just too easy and doesn't make for an exciting read.

The writing was very good. I couldn't put this book down even though I didn't like it that much. I give props to authors who make me want to continue reading, and I read this in one sitting only. Granted it was short, but I'm easily distracted so that's also saying something.

If you're looking for an adult short read with very lovely written steamy scenes, then I recommend The Boss and her Billionaire. 

~Special thank you to Entangled Publishing and Heather Riccio for sending me this book to review! :) ~
