Back Cover Blurb:
To save the firm his father built, ambitious CEO Hal Mercer has to initiate a hostile takeover of industry giant D'Arville Industries.
Owned by the family of the only woman he's ever loved, Kate certainly isn’t going to stand by and let him destroy her family's empire. If only she’d have dinner with him, he could make her understand his intentions. If Hal fails, it's his family’s company that's doomed, his employees who'll lose their jobs. He can't let that happen, but Hal isn’t used to having everyone counting on him like this.
Problem is, it’s becoming less clear which is more important to him—winning the corporate battle of his life or the heart of the woman he loves.
Getting to know the characters in this novel was actually quite fun. Young doesn’t simply develop characters individually, but also based on their relationships to one another. This multifaceted character development brings the entire story into vivid clarity. The dialogue has a great flow to it, and sounds the way that people actually talk.
Overall, this was a fantastic novel. I found it both original and entertaining. I can’t wait to see what Young comes up with next!
