Jacob can't believe it when Anna comes to him with a business proposition. For the last six years he has been working toward taking his revenge on Adam, and Anna is about to give him the perfect shot at it. He doesn't expect the girl he had given up to have become a woman who makes him want to give it all up. But one night in her arms has him trying to find a way to stop that runaway train before it ruins everything.
I loved Anna. She isn't afraid to go after what she wants, professionally or personally. She knows that going to Jacob would be looked at as a betrayal by her brother, but she can't think of another way to get what she wants. She also knows that she is going to have to keep tight control over her emotions, because she has never forgotten the way she felt about him.
I loved the way that they reconnected so quickly, almost as if they had never been apart. Their ride on Jacob's motorcycle had the heat that had been simmering between them burst into a full boil. Though they agreed that their one night couldn't be repeated, that vow lasted only a few days before they couldn't stay away from each other. Over the next few weeks they spent as much time together as they could, with their relationship growing deeper each day. Because of the bad blood between Jacob and Adam, he and Anna kept their relationship secret.
All that secrecy begins to wear on Anna, and she finally tells Adam the truth, only to find out that Jacob is behind a group of investors trying to take over the business. Because he had been trying to find a way to call off the takeover, he had never told Anna what was going on. Heartbroken and feeling betrayed, Anna breaks off her relationship with Jacob, only to discover a short time later that she is pregnant with Jacob's baby.
Anna's conscience, and best friend, won't let her keep that information from Jacob. I loved Jacob's reaction and how he is determined to be a part of Anna and the baby's life. The scene at the doctor's office, both with his protectiveness and how emotional they both got when they heard the baby's heartbeat, was really sweet.
I loved Jacob's determination to win Anna back. He has realized that his feelings for Anna are far more important than any kind of revenge, but is it too late? He has continued his attempts to make things right, and eventually finds the information he needs to do so. That information provides a very interesting twist to the story, Jacob's big moment brings everything to a satisfying end.
As much as I liked Adam in the first book, in this one I spent most of my time feeling like Anna should hit him with a very hard blunt object. He was really obnoxious to her and to almost everyone around him. I was a bit frustrated that we never really got an explanation of what had caused the rift between Adam and Jacob. I also hope that Aiden gets his own story, as his part in this one seemed too easily fixed.
I settled in, knowing I'd scour the book lightning fast - Karen's books are page turners and I finish them in one sitting most of the time. This was no different - I found myself getting absorbed in the plot very quickly. After all, who can resist a story about falling for the rival - with an overpowering big brother to match. With the slightest shade of Romeo and Juliet in the mix along with some of the hottest scenes I've read in a while, I had no trouble staying focused on the book at hand. I thoroughly enjoyed reading a book where the main character was a strong woman, and she didn't fall for your typical white guy. I liked the sexual tension, as well as the family drama that plays out very well throughout the story. I think a lot of times, these books can have a tendency to be fairly formulaic and forget that they really do need to convey a well-planned story or they get boring, and I can assure you that Pregnant by the Rival CEO is NOT in that category. The plot is fine tuned without getting bogged down in the details, the sex scenes brought a flush to my face, and I really enjoyed the read! Grab it and enjoy!
Anna Langford (Adam Langford's sister from That Night With The CEO) has been interested in her brother's best friend Jacob Lin since ...forever. But a feud between Adam and Jacob put an end to anything that might happen between them.
Six years later, Anna decides to take a chance on Jacob, even though she knows it will cause problems with her brother. It doesn't take much for Anna and Jacob to end up in bed, and once they do, their continued relationship puts them at risk of losing it all. Business takeover rumors push things to a head, and well, things get rough for the lovely power couple. Oh, and I did I mention a surprise pregnancy?
Karen Booth does a skillful job of constructing a believable and very heart-warming situation between business rivals here and I loved that the most about this story. The beginning was a bit a slow for me, and it wasn't until these two get between the sheets that this story took off for me.
I liked how this story was connected to the previous release That Night With The CEO. Pregnant by the Rival CEO is a great addition to the Langford family story. I hope there will be more.
Overall, Pregnant by the Rival CEO is a sweet romantic story perfectly sized for an afternoon read.
