Book Review: "Revenge Best Served Hot" (Jackie Braun)

After a car accident involving a semi-truck from Douglass Shipping killed his parents years ago, Brody Flynn has been biding his time, waiting for the chance to exact revenge. When the company's CEO screws up several major opportunities and lands the business somewhere in the red, Brody steps in and executes a carefully planned buyout-slash-takeover, and not of the benevolent variety.

Enter the CEO's daughter, Kate Douglass, who has wanted for years to prove to her father and his colleagues that she can handle more than being a coffee maker and secretary at the shipping company she loves. Now that the company is in Brody's hands, she makes a desperate play for a job, and winds up with a vice presidency and a whole lot of suspicions about the real agenda of the new owner.

If only she, and he, could keep their forbidden attraction to one another under control.

Entangled Publishing's Indulgence imprint presents the sexy category romance Revenge Best Served Hot by talented author Jackie Braun, newly released this month.

A trademark of the Indulgence imprint at Entangled is the fantasy hero, the ultimate self-made man, the one who has it all. Brody Flynn embodies just exactly that kind of scintillating, sexy, raw power and hunger, all of which is underscored and heightened further by his rage-fueled agenda on behalf of his deceased parents.

Sure, his actions are ethically suspect and morally reprehensible, but when viewed through the lens of his grief, loss, and years of built-up bitterness, no one would blame him for his well-planned maneuvers. Besides, once he lands in control of Douglass Shipping, he remains fair and largely impartial to its current employees and works tirelessly to turn the company around, both signs of a businessman with integrity, character, and determination.

Kate, for her part, is his undeniable equal in more ways than one. Just as passionate and savvy about the business world as her father always assumed she was incapable, her drive and devotion to her work mark her as a worthy opponent, serious about making her own notch along the corporate ladder. When Brody unexpectedly gives her that opportunity, she's gracious enough to make the most of it.

Their respective demons only further serve to complicate matters between them, especially when attraction flares hot and inevitably proves to be a distraction and even a hindrance to their individual determinations to stay detached and not involved.

Prepare for a steamy corporate romance sure to keep you turning pages!
