Baiting the Boss
by Coleen Kwan
Macintyre Corporation. But Jack relocates to a remote tropical island after
tragedy upends his life, cutting off all contact. Now Grace’s new boss issues an
ultimatum: return Jack to the family fold or pack her briefcase and move on.
When she turns up at Jack's bungalow, he can’t deny his attraction to the
fiery woman determined to lure him out of his tropical paradise. Little does she
know that returning is the last thing he wants—he’s nobody’s boss, and he likes
it that way.
If he stays, she'll lose her job. If he goes, she'll lose her heart.
Grace always has a crush on Jack Macintyre but could never doing anything about it. A few months into her career at Macintyre Corporation Jack has a falling out with his grandfather, the CEO, and drops off the face of the earth.
Three years later Jack’s grandfather is getting ready to retire and wants the family company in good hands, so Grace is sent to track down Jack.
Grace forgot just how much she liked Jack till she is forced to chase him down and bring him back to Macintyre Corporation, and things start to get dangerous once she finds him. Grace is looking for stability after a childhood without it and Jack threatens everything.
Grace and Jack have an undeniable attraction but Jack is just looking for a fling, even though he knows Grace is not that type of girl. Jack was an easy character to love, he had a lot of heartache in his past and doesn’t want to repeat it again. Grace is an honest character, just looking for a place in the world where she’s stable and loved.
I really liked the book, it didn’t take me long to read it, and it moved along fairly quickly. My only problem with the book was this end, it felt forced, it was like boom boom DONE! I think the book could have used another 20 pages and an epilogue to really polish off the story and pull everything together.
I did receive this book as an ARC for an honest review.
