Royal, Texas – Present Day

With her boss, Alex, mysteriously missing, executive assistant Sophie Beldon's job duties have drastically declined, so when the other partner in the company, Zach Lassiter, asks her to work for him, she accepts.  Of course, once Sophie starts working for Zach, she begins to wonder if he has something to do with her boss missing, and decides to investigate a little on her own. She knows he is still in constant contact with his ex-wife, acts strangely, and soon learns that he is making unexplained phone calls. Working closely with Zach also brings them into personal contact, and an attraction develops. Should Sophie bed Zach in order to dig deeper at the truth?

Zach is frustrated by his added workload with Alex missing and having to deal with his ex-wife's mental issues. He enjoys having Sophie work for him, with her efficient attitude and that she is easy on the eyes. He'd like to get to know her better, but he has to get his life in order first. However, when he escorts her to a party, his libido kicks into high gear when he gets a glimpse of what she wears underneath her clothes. When they become closer—and later make love—Zach is determined to do whatever it takes to keep Sophie in his life.

Business—and life—goes on for Zach and Sophie in SOMETHING ABOUT THE BOSS despite the distractions of Alex's disappearance. Sophie feels the mystery even more because she was Alex's assistant. While there is nothing specific that can be pinned on Zach, she begins to question why he appears to be keeping secrets. Sophie digs deeper and discovers that the only way she can find the truth is to give into the simmering attraction between Zach and herself. Will she discover he's innocent…or find out that he is responsible for Alex's disappearance? Meanwhile, Sophie is having little luck tracking down a half-sister she hasn't seen in twenty years. Is one investigation getting in the way of the other?

Zach seems to be trying to juggle too much at one time. With Alex gone, he has to take over the other man's job and do his own, plus his needy ex-wife continues to demand his time. He wants to see her get help, have Alex found and then he can pursue his attraction to Sophie. Is Zach asking for too much? SOMETHING ABOUT THE BOSS is part of the Texas Cattleman's Club: The Missing Mogu l series, which centers on the mysterious disappearance of Alex. It helps a little to have read the prior two books in the series, but this tale can be done as a standalone. While the answer to where the missing mogul is won't be found in this book, Sophie does find her half-sister—who is literally there right under her nose.

Tempted by the lure of Zach, a man she suspects is behind the absence of her boss, Sophie just may do whatever it takes to find out the truth. Will it end in love for them—and a happily-ever-after? Find out for yourself in the intriguing SOMETHING ABOUT THE BOSS.
