~~Reviewed by Evelyn~~
IN THE EYE OF THE STORM and CATERING TO THE CEO, a pair of perfectly paired short novels by Samantha Chase were originally released in 2013. They have something else in common: they both involve falling in love with rich bosses.
The hero in each story is a good-looking, workaholic CEO who is very demanding of those that work for him. Neither man has any interest in a serious relationship, but both have become attracted to an employee on whom they have come to rely heavily. While both women, a personal assistant in the first book and a caterer in the second, are strongly attracted to their bosses, neither holds much hope that anything lasting will develop. Similar premises, but their roads to possible HEAs are different so the readers are kept guessing.
Both stories are well-written, and surprise, steamier than her current novels. The sex is much more explicit than in her most recent stories which tend to leave the sex up to the imagination of the reader. I would have expected it to be the other way around, but I honestly think I prefer the subtlety of her current style of writing.
I enjoyed the chance to read two of Samantha’s earlier novels since I missed them the first time around. I’m giving this delightful duo four stars.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers’ Copy of this novel.
