My rating: 4 of 5 gargoyles
An interesting story, a bit different from your typical boss/employee story, starting from the fact that technically, Cassie isn’t really his employee, more of an independent contractor.
Jack – Loved how he was so initially closed off, very routine-oriented, and enjoyed his working meals. Over the course of the book he loosened up a bit and learned to look beyond just the very surface of things. Granted, he wasn’t exactly Mr. Stellar Nice Guy when he jumps to a TOTALLY erroneous conclusion based off of a single text, buuuut I’ll cut the book some slack because of how that situation resolved itself.
Cassie – Such a sweetheart. I totally get her backstory and how difficult it is working and having a problematic relative who won’t actually help themselves despite desperately needing help of some sort. I like math girls and thankfully they’re showing up more often these days.
Story itself? Pretty good. I thought the big misunderstanding toward the end was a little done, but like I said, I’ll go with it. What I didn’t particularly care for was the CFO issue and how easily that was wrapped up. Just seemed a wee bit too convenient for my tastes, but hey. Okay. ‘Nuff said on that.
Sex scenes were pretty hot and I really liked how neither was shy about going after what they were desiring. No shrinking virgins here, yay!
So – great book from Entangled (duh).
