Cole Tate is the boss that isn't used to faking it, and he's not about to start…
It was never on my radar to have a woman living in my house, especially not one that shares my last name. But I've been eyeing a corporate takeover for the last year and Ruby, the newly Mrs. Cole Tate, just happens to be from the same friend circle and is the daughter of the current company owner. She also holds the key to the extra board votes I need to win.
The spitfire beauty just needs to be married to make it happen. It's in a ridiculous clause.
Luckily for me, Ruby has her own reasons for ensuring I succeed. So, we struck a deal and found ourselves as husband and wife. It's a win-win and oh so easy…
Except living together is a constant game of taunting the other—clothing optional. Then there is the fact that we are quite good at faking our attraction in public. Soon our long talks don't feel like pretend anymore. Not to mention, we decide to add benefits to the equation. And yep, we are excellent at those benefits too. Suddenly, what should have been an easy and temporary deal begins to look a little too real…
The Real Deal is the fourth and final standalone story in the Mr. Boss series where you can revisit your favorite characters throughout. This feel-good story is filled with banter, a swoony boss, steamy times, and surprises along the way.
My new favorite fake marriage romance!
I would give this book 10 stars if I could!! ❤️🔥
The entire “Mr Boss” series has been absolutely amazing. I have loved and enjoyed every character and every couple that was brought together in this series. This book was such a wonderful wrap up to the series with what is now one of my favorite couples: Cole and Ruby. Experiencing this couple falling in love was more beautiful than I know how to describe.
Cole and Ruby have known each other for years and more recently have been part of the same group of friends. Neither of them is really relationship material, for their respective reasons, so they enjoy the single game and a flirtation between the two of them. When Ruby wants access to her trust fund and discovers she needs to get married to access it, she comes up with a deal that will benefit Cole as well.
Cole is looking to purchase her dad’s company but the odds are working against him. Marrying Ruby would guarantee that purchase. So they agree to a fake marriage with rules as part of their deal. They alter the deal to include “benefits” because time spent together makes it impossible to ignore their chemistry. Their deal slowly becomes “the real deal”. Will either of them want to part ways as agreed? What happens to the deal when feelings change?
You have to read this book!! Actually you HAVE to read this series! Each couple has been a joy to experience. Cole and Ruby were especially fun to read. This couple can have so much fun together and find such peace in each other’s company. Them falling in love along the way was so beautiful to read! I can’t recommend it enough!
I received an advance copy of this book and I am voluntarily leaving a review.

#therealdeal is the next installment of the #mrbossseries by @authorehlyon
Cole is young, wealthy and very business savvy. He has been buying out companies and improving them overtime. He has an impeccable business ethic and wants to keep thriving. When trying to buy the company from and acquaintance’s father, he tries to get a read on her. But when she comes up with a plan that they both can benefit from, he takes a vow to make it work.
Ruby can be blunt and sometimes cold to others. But really it’s to not let her heart get in the way. She wants to follow her dreams but her father keeps getting in the way. After a wedding and night of tequila, she comes up with a fool proof plan that gets her what she’s entitled to, and her future ex husband what he wants too. That is until she realizes her feelings are starting to rock the boat and she wants him more than her trust fund.
I liked this book so much! Cole said the best things to Ruby. He treated her like a queen. I love a relationship or marriage of convenience, because let’s be real, it’s convenient that you end up finding your true love. This book was flirty and steamy in all the right spots. Totally worth the read!!
