This was a short but intense read. Despite the novella format, I found that the author managed to give a lot of background information about the heroes. The way the plot was built made it interesting and a page-turner.
Griffen Woodlock, a ruthless corporate raider specialized in hostile takeovers, and Aubrey Hargrave, the classy daughter of a senator, have been lovers until Griffen pushed Aubrey away, refusing to commit. But his affair with Aubrey still feels unfinished and he could never forget her, even after several months.
Audrey and Griffen will be forced to meet again, as Griffen has taken over the start-up company Aubrey manages. His apparent intention is the usual for him : cutting jobs, restructuring the company and selling it with profit. But is he really the heartless bastard he seems to be, or it this takeover a business decision motivated by emotions running very deep ?
I enjoyed reading this story, though I regretted the absence of some form of epilogue. I will definitely follow this author in the future. 4 stars
