The plot idea is a good one, the writing is just so bad. When a writer does such things as use "who's" instead of "whose" or "loose" instead or "lose", it becomes quite distracting. Entire paragraphs are written in all caps because the characters are screaming obscenities. There is no character development.
I was hoping for much better after reading the other reviews.

Ashley Fontainne manages to achieve the impossible: she makes accountants interesting! Beginning with an incredibly harrowing scene you are grabbed hook, line and sinker into the story as the book becomes an almost compulsive read.

Audra is a worthy protagonist, almost destroying herself in her quest for vengeance against the despicable Olin, her boss. The action and revelations don't stop as each main character is explored in depth, giving more weight to the overall plot. The book's central scene simply explodes across the pages and is as gripping as it is satisfying. The last chapter is certainly clever, setting up nicely for the sequel, Zero Balance - and if book 2 is anything like Accountable to None it's sure to be a powerful must-read!

The story line sounded intriguing, so I downloaded this book for free. Good thing - it would have been a waste of money as well as time. The character development was pathetic and sadly predictable. The spelling and grammar were horrendous... numerous sentences were like "snakes" - winding around and writhing painfully as they tried to go in too many directions. I found myself reading the same sentence 3 or 4 times to figure out what the writer was trying to say. I dislike profanity, and there was so much of it - fortunately, by skimming over the pages of all-cap yelling and F-bombs, I think I spared myself at least a third of the book. I grew weary of the heroine being described as "frail", even "bony". This was particularly annoying as she was exacting her revenge, a time in which descriptors evoking an image of power would have been much more appropriate and welcome.

Take my advice and skip this book unless you are an English teacher who is looking for bad examples.

The author of Accountable To None, Ashley Fontainne, took me on an emotional roller coaster ride, feeling everything from pain and heartache of a character that the reader finds themselves wanting to wrap in a warm embrace, to the evil sense of entitlement on one of the most brutal characters I have read about in a long time. I'm exhausted. I could not put this book down. It gripped me from the very beginning and the intensity level just kept building and building. I found myself holding my breath as I read. I suggest you start this book on a Saturday morning with nothing planned for the day, because once you start, you won't be able to stop. This is an AMAZING READ! I highly recommend it.

My first book by this author, and it was worth my reading time. I liked how she did the chapters like links in a chain, always connecting the current link to the past and future ones. I like her style, characters, pacing, motivations, and plot. Some really good and different twists. I would definitely read the rest of this series.

I can't believe the number of people that have given this book a four or five star rating. The plot is unbelievable, the characters are one dimensional, and the author's writing is eighth grade at best. She has mastered the run-on sentence, and I've seldom read an author that can misplace modifiers so frequently. She also puts apostrophes where they don't belong and leaves them out when she should use them. (The plural of Barbie is Barbies, not Barbie's. That's the singular possessive, which she should have learned in fourth grade.) I read 37% of this book and couldn't take any more. Fortunately, I got this as a freebie, so I didn't waste any money. I did waste some time on this book which is too bad.

I am going to remove it from my Kindle -- it's that poor.

I took the time to read some of the five star reviews. Be aware a lot of them were given right after the book was published. Many of them are one paragraph long and submitted by people never reviewed anything before or since. Something smells....

This book was a free download and I love mysteries and thrillers. This combined both. I couldn't wait until I got to the end to find out what was going on. The lead character is brutally raped and abused in order to become an equity partner in the firm. She spends 5 years plotting her revenge before everything comes together and she can confront the firm and her rapist. It's a must read!

This book was one of the best I have read in a long time...I read more than 100 books this past year on my kindle and it was one of the best yet. Cannot wait for the next one coming.. I really enjoyed this book because she wasted no words or descriptions. It was just such an easy read. I liked being able to sit down and read it from front to back without ever putting it down.I hope this author continues to write such awesome books . My opinion is Ashley Fontainne is the author to watch for... Good things ahead...Linda
