EASY READ. Nicely written, engaging storyline, a strong hero, a heroine who matures over the storyline, good secondary cast, and the author deals sensitively with the terminal illness of a parent. HOWEVER, the opening scenario with the heroine and hero hooking up for a one-nighter, is not all that admirable and doesn’t fit the strong family values plot.
THE STORY revolves around float designer and V.P of Operations, Tess Ullo, her father Frank, and mechanical engineer and MBA, Graham Naquin. Fresh out of college, Tess joined the family business, Frank Ullo Float Builders, the largest, most successful firm in New Orleans. About the same time, Graham, his pregnant girlfriend, and his best friend, joined together to form Upstart Float Builders. After Graham’s daughter was born, his girlfriend dumped him, and he sold out and left the state.
As the story unfolds, Graham wants to return to New Orleans to be closer to his daughter and interviews for the position of CEO of Ullo Float Builder. That evening, he meets Tess in a bar, they spend the night together, and both believe they have fallen in love. What she doesn’t know is that her father has pancreatic cancer and has secretly hired Graham to take over as CEO, a position Tess assumed she would inherit whenever her father retired. Angry and hurt after learning the truth, she joins Upstart, Ullo’s biggest rival. But both Graham and her father have faith that she will begin to understand the difficult decisions that were made and reconcile before it is too late (bpl).
OVERALL, an intense storyline about making mistakes, seeing another’s point of view, and letting love, not pride, determine your choices in life, IF you can get past the first few chapters.
You may also enjoy the complex characters and storytelling of N. Bruhns, Anne Stuart, and E. Palfrey. For funny, heart touching romances with great dialogue and descriptive imagery, try Susan Fox, Cara Colter, and Nikki Logan.
Tess is definitely spoiled and immature. She is not my favorite character in this story but it was interesting to see her growth while she struggled to figure out her future.
Graham does his best to be supportive but he made mistakes that in turn had Tess doubting his intentions.
I think Talley did well in her plot development. I would have liked to see less cattiness in the female characters, it was completely over done in that aspect. Overall it was a fast paced, emotional but entertaining read.
He doesn't know her last name and she doesn't know what her dad's up to. What's Tess to do? Why, quit and go to work for a competitor! Right? Well... maybe that's not such a good idea when she has an itch to get with Graham again and again, in spite of her fury that he's taken her job. Graham wants more of Tess, too, but he's caught in a web of intrigue he never expected. Only being close to his 7-yr-old daughter makes his return to New Orleans worth the issues he now must deal with.
Talley keeps this story moving, entangling the characters in realistic conundrums. This reader kept cheering for Tess to get real about her skills--what she knew and what she didn't--even as Graham decides to pursue Tess for real even as he seeks to explain that he didn't know what her dad was up against or who she was when they first hooked up. A worthwhile read.
