Ostensibly, the book is supposed to center on who is raiding the corporate coffers. Kate is brought in as a financial detective to solve this dilemma. Apparently, the transfers via WESTERN UNION (OMG) were too tricky for the billionaire to figure out himself. Kate makes false accusations, but ultimately solves the case by reading Tupperware. I wish I was joking about this.
To top the silliness off, Kate is supposed to be under cover, as opposed to under the covers. The undercover behavior consists of the billionaire taking the day off the minute she arrives and wheeling out her suitcase from his office, sending her flowers and lunch to her office, wandering around New Orleans together, partying with the boss's sister in public, and HAVING SEX IN HIS OFFICE during the work day. These guys make the Scooby Doo gang look like Navy Seals.
For all that Kate is supposed to be a financial guru, little of the book is about the supposed mystery and Kate comes off as immature. The silly drunk girl scenes wore thin as did the "let's make Kate swear" games.
The book flies off in all directions with many superficial subplots. The requisite misunderstanding is tossed in for good measure and never explained. The author includes a rape and death for no useful reason. Kate's ex-husband morphs from just being a jerk to a murderer. There seems to be some confusion on the author's part because early on we are told he remarried a week after their divorce. He delayed the divorce for two years because he didn't want to ruin his social standing. Then we are told he is in jail. I guess they played Folsom Prison Blues as the bride walked down the aisle.
Eli sings the "I'm not good enough" serenade until he mystically remembers something his father told him.
The novel is stuffed with secondary characters whose main purpose is to introduce them for future books in the series. What is the purpose of the Asher incident otherwise? The same goes for Rhys and one of the lamest epilogues ever.
Don't expect any witty dialogue.
"I love girlie stuff.”
“Well, you are a girl, so I guess that fits." Gak!
Skip this book and go eat a beignet. Two stars only because it was free.
