Successful businesswoman Samantha Jones gets the emergency call just minutes before an important meeting with her boss, Cal Tremaine. Her sixty-nine-year-old grandmother has had custody of Kippy since the baby's parents died just before Christmas. Now her grandmother is hospitalized, and her niece placed in temporary foster care. Somehow Samantha must balance Cal's substantial staffing needs and her own personal crisis.
When the call comes, Samantha knows it would be irresponsible to walk out forty-eight hours before the massive screening process at a recruitment open house. She hadn't come aboard Cal's company for the generous salary, but for the promise of a seat on the board after two years if she does an effective job. Walking now would jeopardize her goals, and make her personal life very public. Samantha has maintained a strict distinction between the two, not even telling her boss about her sister's death five months ago. The careful distinction allows Samantha to remain in perfect control of her life; something she refuses to give up. But control has suddenly been wrenched from her grasp by way of circumstance, and Samantha doesn't quite know how to cope. Especially when Cal insists upon helping.
Cal's fascinated and impressed by the woman who put his company in shape. After being burned by his previous partner, Cal had been hesitant to bring in high level help, but Samantha had quickly demonstrated her proficiency at organizing and delegating, making a remarkable difference in the success of the company. Samantha seems to have no personal life, spending eighteen hours a day on work if needed. He admired her ambition and drive, and believed her too valuable to risk a temporary romance, despite his attraction. Then he sees her barefoot, hair down to her waist, holding a baby, and everything changes.
I find romances refreshing when the guy falls head over heals first, and spends most of the novel convincing the girl that he's right for her. Watching this hero convince his lady love is hoot! Further, as a member of the Information Technology industry, I find a delightful humor in the references to the industry, such as developers don't like stodgy companies, and outdoing IBM. But fear not, folks who don't know what a developer does will still find THINK ABOUT LOVE a high powered romp not to be missed! Highly recommended.

I'm going to get straight to the point here. I don't usually write reviews, but if I were considering purchasing this title, I would want to know. The heroine of this story is extremely unpleasant to read. She's an uptight control freak, which wouldn't normally be a problem for me, except that her narrative is equally uptight and unpleasant to the point of making her unlikeable and the novel itself stressful. This book is very well written, but I'm at the 65% point and I just can't take the gloom any more. I feel sorry for the hero. I can't take any more.

This was a well written book. The plot was nicely developed and flowed well. The hero was every women's dream guy. Handsome, sensitive, loving and caring. The heroine was a different story. She was an uptight, bitter control freak. She was constantly rude and insensitive to the hero. I did not like her at all and couldn't believe he put up with her emotional detachment for as long as he did. If you can overlook a distasteful character like this then it is worth reading.

I liked the beginning of the story, but after 2/4 of the reading the book became repetitive and boring. In particular, Sam's character became annoying. The likeability of the two main characters was further compromised by the last turn taken by the story. The logic and the heart should have advised them, as a young couple, to look after a baby and not to leave her with an old woman, no matters how healthy she can be. In conclusion, at the end of the story Cal and Sam strike like selfish, self-centered beings, not at all my favorite blend of romantic characters.

I enjoyed the book and loved the H but what stopped this book from being great was the irritating h. I must say that the author would have done well to lighten her up a bit earlier on in the book. I was in danger of not caring at the end.

Slightly predictable, but well written romance. It kept my attention throughout. The author made me care about the characters. I will be purchasing other books by this author.

This was such a sweet romance. I really enjoyed it. I really felt like I was inside Sammantha's head. You feel all of her hopes fears and neurotic misgivings while she resists falling in love or loosing control with Cal.
The love scenes were some of the best I have read in a long time. There was so much tension that I felt like I was on the edge of my seat while reading it.
I will look for more from this author and would recommend reading it.

I really enjoyed this book. The author keeps you guessing about how things will turn out. Good fantasy, escape from reality. I recommend it.

Talented, headstrong businesswoman, Samantha Jones, and her boss, successful, hunkly Cal Tremaine, have had the perfect business relationship for 18 months. That all changes when problems in her personal life threaten to disrupt Samantha's work life and Cal steps in to help. Suddenly their relationship is turned on its head.

Cal is very likeable, the perfect hero - handsome, considerate, loving. Samantha's character is a little less likeable - she is an independent, stubborn control freak and, at times, cold in the extreme.

My main criticism is that, whilst the beginning and end of the book were quite interesting, somewhere in the middle the story seemed to drag on and became so boring that I almost gave up. The author could have wrapped it up a lot sooner.

Book was an easy read. Character were likeable but not loveable. Main female character was stubborn to the point that it was irritating. Ending to me was somewhat predictable.
