3.5-4 stars! ARC provided by Xpresso Book Tours for an honest review.
You know how they say don't judge a book by it's cover? Well the same goes for the title...when I saw the title of this book I thought this was going to be just another steamy story about a boss seducing his secretary or something, but I was so wrong, (except maybe for the initial elevator encounter). And this book is just what I needed after the emotional roller coasters I've been reading.
Seducing the enemy has never been so tempting…
the last five years, bookish Claire Williams has been living for the
dying. Now that her stint as caretaker is over, she’s off to see the
world. She needs quick cash first, so a temp job at Anderson Auctions
seems perfect, especially with the unexpected benefits, including the
hottest man she’s ever laid eyes—or hands—on.
William Anderson has been burned one time too many. His military
training makes him the perfect man to flush out the spy undercutting his
family business, but no amount of training can prepare him for the kind
of undercover work he’ll have to do when the sexy new temp is
implicated. Desire lands them in bed…but duty may cost him his heart.
Claire is a smart, caring, and funny woman and she's not a doormat like some h's. She can make fun of herself instead hiding away because of embarrassment, and she has a lot of embarrassing moments (Claire-ism's). She wants to have fun and be free for the next two weeks until she leaves for Egypt for an internship. What she wasn't expecting was to fall hard for her boss William Anderson.
William has been through hell and he just wants to have a fun easy relationship with his new temp. The problem is, she is the number one suspect in the Anderson company, the only one they can even think that could be the spy undercutting the business. William doesn't think it's her but all signs point to the woman he's falling for. When they start dating he knows he'll find out for sure it's not.
William and Claire are great characters! They are a little corky but it makes them that much more likable. I'm not the biggest fan of instant love but it didn't matter to me that much in this book. I liked this book because of the suspense too and what I really liked is that the person I had pegged to be the spy wasn't. I thought the author did a good job of keeping you guessing. This was a quick fun read, it was sweet and funny. I just wish it had a different title. I'm excited to read about the other Anderson brothers.
