They say love is blind, and growing up as a little girl lost, Aniqa Haddon is now a woman that’s had enough of no love. She loved Je’Marcus Watford past his flaws and stayed loyal, even when he failed to put her first. She dove head first into their young love, allowing Je’Marcus to be her lifeline when her mother abandoned her to chase the street life, but when the smoke clears and those blinders come off, Aniqa finds herself living a heart-breaking nightmare. Hoping to give her baby girl, Essence, the world, Aniqa is faced with a tough decision: move on from Je’Marcus’ abusive love drought, or stay blindly committed to a disloyal dude. There’s just one problem, though: the only way Je’Marcus plans to let her go is through death.

Linc Carmichael is a low key boss that wants no parts of the L word. Determined to take the family business to the next level, he plays it close to the chest when dealing with chicks. He sticks to chicks that don’t expect a commitment and has one main rule: no chicks with kids. That all goes out the window when he meets Aniqa; her natural beauty and heart of gold bring Linc to his knees, and he knows he has to have her—no matter who has to die in the process.

Crushed is what you feel when love don’t love you back, but Linc just might be the one to renew Aniqa’s faith in love when she finds herself Crushin’ on a Boss...

My Review

Crushin’ on A Boss is a great story written by Tysha in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It centers around the abusive relationship between two young parents, Aniqua & Je’Marcus (Marcus).

Aniqua is a young mother who's stuck in an abusive relationship. Unhappy and wanting to leave, she's afraid of the outcome that will follow. She's more concerned about her little girl, Essie, than her own life. I mean who can blame her? My child would be my top priority as well.

I loved the way Tysha presented this story. It was visually written and paid attention to detail. She touched basis on the abuse Aniqua went through & why. More importantly, she showed how and why it was so hard for Aniqua to just pick up & leave from her abusive relationship; something most people don't & can't understand.

I was able to read this story all in one setting. It touched my heart because no one should go through what Aniqua was going through. It also touched my heart because I just went through a similar situation as well. So many women are abused, yet no one knows about it but a select few. That goes to show the saying, ‘No one knows what goes on behind closed doors’ is so true.

I loved Beautiful’s character. She was so down to earth & a real backbone for Aniqua. Their friendship, Essie & her education & dreams kept Aniqua pushing.

When Linc came into Aniqua’s life, it was like a breath of fresh air for her. Although it scared the shit out of her, she still embraced it. I really do believe that he will be good for her & will be more motivation for her to get out of her awful situation. At least, I hope so. I also believe that if he knew the details of Aniqua & Marcus’ relationship, he would definitely handle it without a second thought.

I'm looking forward to reading part 2 as soon as it's available and I highly recommend that you all read this book, the entire series. That cliffhanger at the end has me itching in anticipation for more. I have to know what's going to become of this nightmare Aniqua is living in.
