Secrets, desires, and exquisite pie. It’s all in a day’s work at The Company.

Growing up, I was the rough guy from the wrong neighborhood who couldn’t catch a break. Posy was the pampered girl I tried to impress. But I managed to steal only a single kiss before I had to skip town.
Now I’m back, and the tables are turned. Posy runs a struggling pie shop. I’m the VP of a secretive billion dollar security company. 
Not that I can tell her.
There’s a murderer on the loose in New York, and he seems to spend a lot of time at Posy’s shop. I can’t let on that I’m here to bring him down before he can harm a hair on her pretty head.
Going undercover as Posy’s new barista wasn’t my idea. I don’t even drink coffee. But now I have to call her “boss,” and do everything the curvy perfectionist asks of me. I’d forgotten how much we infuriate each other, and that she somehow fills me with both irritation and desire in the same breath.
There’s nobody more skilled at stealth ops than me. I can bring this killer down. Right after I take a cold shower. And just as soon as I figure out how to make a skinny peppermint latte with milk poured in the shape of a kitten... 

Praise for the Company series:

A sexy, smart and heartwarming modern love story full of heat, banter and lots of twists and turns. New York Times bestselling author Lauren Blakely 
An abundance of romance, heat, humour, secrets and duplicity. Totally Booked Blog
My new favorite! Relentless Romance


  • Two day read!

    By Kbaybro
    Really loved everything about this book! I couldn’t put it down.
  • A wonderful addition to the series

    By TyDyMomVT
    Sarina Bowen has a gift for writing strong female leads and caring heroes who are surprised when they find themselves falling in love, but completely ready to fight for their future happiness once they come to that realization. Posy and Gunner are good people and it was easy to care about them and get pulled in to the story - humor, emotions, sexy-times, danger, and suspense - this book has it all!
  • Charming and suspenseful!

    By Virna Thompson
    I had an opportunity to listen to an early audio copy of Loverboy by Sarina Bowen, the second book in The Company series, and I truly enjoyed listening to it. Narrated by Joe Arden, Emma Wilder and Vanessa Edwin, this is a second chance romance with so many feels. Gunner and Posy have history but a lot has changed since they last saw each other. He is back to protect her and catch a criminal. Which is how he now finds himself working in her pie shop. Posy is likable and full of sass. Gunnar is charming and sexy and knows nothing about working in a pie shop. I loved listening to them fall. The story was suspenseful and charming and had me intrigued from start to finish. Happy reading!
  • Great read! I really enjoyed both the plot and the characters.

    By Ghelka
    Great book! Sarina only writes great books. This is one more book that reads fast because it is so exciting. I enjoyed all the twists and turns. Keep them coming!
  • Yes, yes, YES! I needed this book in my life.

    By M.K Cox
    Yes, yes, YES! I needed this book in my life. Sarina Bowen is back again with Loverboy, book 2 in The Company standalone series. Gunner is all about his job and when it sends him to pose as a barista, things couldn’t get worse... except they did when he ends up in Posy’s pie shop. Posy is a blast from the past and things didn’t end on the best of terms. But Gunner is persistent and he has to keep Posy safe. Posy just wants her shop to succeed and when she’s left in need of a barista, Gunner looks like her only option. Things keep turning from bad to worse and when Posy is left in danger she’s not sure who to trust. This is a well written book that had me turning pages until the end. One Click this gem!
  • Thrilling, Romantic Fun

    Oops, she did it again! Ok, that’s just silly but it’s ultimately true. Sarina has done it again...a beautifully written story with incredible characters that makes it so easy to escape. And I don’t know about you, but 2020 unfortunately is something I need to escape from occasionally. Gunnar is the focus of this particular installment of The Company series book Loverboy. Gunnar is the college roommate, best friend and business partner to Company owner Max Bayer. And he’s been requested to return from the west coast to New York to flesh out the identity of a super secret killer. Gunnar is a great character. I love his witty banter and his back and forth with Posy...a blast from his past and now coffee shop owner and temporary boss. Sparks fly between these the best possible way. Can’t wait to continue on with this series. Hopefully we get a glimpse of the super secretive Max in the next release.
  • eReader on 🔥.... Loverboy is a fab read!

    By Lse587
    eReader on fire!!! Loverboy by Sarina Bowen was a 5 star read for me! Why? Immediate re-read and a highlight of nearly the whole book. Loverboy is another book in The Company series that features favorite characters from Ms Bowen’s other books. It’s got dual POV, a HEA, no cliffhangers, terrific characters, and a unique storyline. Gunnar is an undercover barista who really needs to up his game to prove to Posey that he’s worthy of working in her pie shop. They’ve got history and their chemistry after their reconnection is instantly off the charts. Posey’s barely making it, helping her sister, all while trying to ignore the betrayal by her father years ago. ... and Gunnar’s trying to solve an international cyber case while keeping Posey safe and her shop open. Loverboy is sweet, fun with a capital F, suspenseful, romantic, heartwarming, sassy, witty and absolutely fabulous! The writing is tight and dialogue is witty. Download Loverboy now ... and if you haven’t read anything by Ms. Bowen, prepare to download the rest of her books! I received an ARC and am voluntarily (and very happily) leaving my honest review!
  • so good!

    By Laura__F
    This book took me a little bit to get into it but once I hit about 30%, I couldn’t stop reading. It’s not often I actually fall asleep on my kindle and wake up not knowing what happened but that’s how my night went with Loverboy.... I have been obsessed with Sarina Bowen since I binged all of her series in about six months and I have come to the conclusion that there’s absolutely nothing that she can’t do. Sports? Check. M/M? Check. Small-town? Check. And now she’s absolutely nailed suspense. I love that there’s such a mystery in the background of this story and I wasn’t able to guess any of it. I love this series and I really can’t wait to find out what’s going to happen next!!
  • Love this series!

    By mpatane5
    I loved this romcom/suspense storyline. Gunnar and Posy’s chemistry is sizzling and their banter hilarious. It’s definitely a great addition to this series. Narration by Joe Arden, Emma Wilder and Vanessa Edwin was fantastic!
  • Loved this sooo muchhhh!

    By Ashel05
    Loveddddd!!! Gunnar. Who works for/with Max Bayer (Erik from moonlighter brother) comes to New York for a stealthy assignment. Little did he know it would be the crash and burn, the one that got away! Loved Posy! So much. She’s taken some emotional knocks from her ex husband. Confidence is a little shaky. But she’s set on making her pie shop the best ever. Looking for heat? Intrigue? Sweet? Flirty? Dander? This is the book for you! Highly Recommend PS: Cannot wait for Max’s book!
