He’s all business…until he’s all hers

Brody Flynn waited years to get his revenge on Douglass Shipping for his parents’ accidental deaths. Now the company is fumbling, profits are down, and it’s the perfect time for a hostile takeover. Vengeance. But the former CEO’s daughter Kate Douglass has other plans…

Kate’s been waiting for her chance to take on a real role at Douglass and prove to her family that she’s not the fragile piece of glass they all think she is. There’s no way she’ll give up without a fight. All she has to do is convince the gorgeous new CEO to hire her…and not fall for him.

But Brody was never supposed to feel attracted to the daughter of his enemy. He was never supposed to want her as hard as he does. And the only thing stronger than his hunger for revenge is his hunger for her…

When Brodie Flynn was a young boy, the reckless truck driving policies of the Douglass Shipping company caused the deaths of both of Brodie’s parents.  He has spent years planning his covert revenge and it has finally come to fruition – a hostile takeover of the majority of Douglas Shipping shares and the systematic dismantling of all its assets.  What Brodie didn’t count on was the wicked business acumen of Katie Douglas, daughter to the former CEO.  Despite her stellar background in business, Katie has been relegated to glorified gopher and trophy figurehead of her father’s company.  But when the company is taken over by Brodie Flynn, businessman extraordinaire, Katie seizes the opportunity to prove to the new boss exactly what she can do to turn around the failing business.  And ends up losing her heart in the process.

Katie and Brodie are a perfectly matched couple.  Their personalities and intelligence make them both sharks in the boardroom.  After reading about such well-developed characters, it’s easy to imagine Katie and Brodie ruling at the head of a vast business empire as their employee-subjects look on in awe at this power couple.

The plot of this novel had me glued into my seat all afternoon.  Intrigue, betrayal, corporate politics (which may sound boring but was actually very interesting the way everything played out) and layers upon layers of subplots make up REVENGE BEST SERVED HOT.  The pacing was clipped and the characters dynamic.  Nothing seemed rushed or forced – this was the kind of novel that made me feel like I was watching a really good tv episode or movie.  Everything flowed so well and the ending leaves you with pleasant tingles of happiness that you expect from reading a romance novel.

This is #6 in a series, but you do not need to read the other novels to fully enjoy this one.
