Title: My Boss’s Son
Author: Amaka Azie
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Adanna Ezenna needs this promotion. What’s more, she deserves it. But after a workday from hell, her chances look grim. So, when some joker, posing as the lead actor in a hit British television series, slides into her Cupidess dating app DMs, her response pulls no punches. Her career, not romance, is on the agenda right now. Besides, no way could the lying fraud be the man for her, right?
Justin Igwe is in Lagos searching for his biological father. A bitter breakup has left him sour on love, but a savvy guide around town could aid his mission. So, he puts his profile on the hip, new dating app Cupidess. And bingo, there she is— totally not his type and knows the city like the back of her hand.
Now, if he can only convince her he’s not a con. Easy enough. The hard part? Keeping his unexpected attraction to her in check.

My breath hitches. Is he trying to say what I think he is?
“I’m attracted to you, and I like you a lot. I sense the feeling is mutual,” he carries on in a deep, reflective tone. “Why can’t we continue to explore what’s developing between us?”
His question seems reasonable. But also, ambiguous. I need clarification. “You mean date, or continue to hook up?”
He suddenly reaches out to cradle my face in his palms. “Let me make this perfectly clear, Adanna. Last night wasn’t a hookup for me. I don’t let just anyone spend the night in my bedroom.”
He caresses my jaw with his thumb, spreading shards of desire from his fingertips through my skin, and transmitting those sensual impulses straight to the already sensitised bud between my thighs. I do an involuntary Kegel exercise, trying to tamp down the need stirring in my loins.
“Dating is what I mean, Adanna. Can we give this relationship a try and see where it leads us?”
Multiple concerns storm my brain like a blizzard in winter. Can a relationship with Justin possibly work? Won’t I be setting myself up for another train wreck.
Let’s get real. He lives three thousand miles away in London. And I already know from my time with Tayo that long distance is a no-no for me. When he moved to Ghana for work, he became insecure, and it intruded on our rapport. Am I really prepared to go through that again?
Then, there’s the problem of my unemployment, and Justin being an English actor with a net worth of over ten million pounds. Can a relationship survive such a vast divide in financial and social status? Will he eventually realize dating a broke, unemployed Nigerian hoping to make ends meet as an Uber driver would bring down his international status? What if …
“Don’t overthink things, Adanna,” he murmurs, cutting into my torrential thoughts as if he’s read my mind. “It’s just me and you. Right here, right now. Nothing and nobody else. Does this feel right?”
I gaze into his eyes, and my heart flipflops. Pure hope is shining in their dark depths. The answer is plain and simple to me. And it’s a whooping YES. At this very moment, taking every other thing out of the equation, being here with Justin feels absolutely fantastic.
