about

If you think it’s hard to win back the one that got away, try doing it while you’re taking over her family's company.

To save the firm his father built, ambitious CEO Hal Mercer has to initiate a hostile takeover of industry giant D'Arville Industries. 

Owned by the family of the only woman he's ever loved, Kate certainly isn’t going to stand by and let him destroy her family's empire. If only she’d have dinner with him, he could make her understand his intentions. If Hal fails, it's his family’s company that's doomed, his employees who'll lose their jobs. He can't let that happen, but Hal isn’t used to having everyone counting on him like this. 

Problem is, it’s becoming less clear which is more important to him—winning the corporate battle of his life or the heart of the woman he loves.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a great novel I quite enjoyed Young’s writing style. The easy forward flow of words allows you to focus on the story while at the same time highlighting certain aspects of it. Young writes naturally, and words things in a way that is just a little off centre, really keeping your attention. His descriptions made the story pop. I could easily picture myself sitting in the boardroom with the characters, or in any of the other aspects of the story. I loved the parallels that can be easily drawn to Shakespeare. For me it gave an extra element to immerse myself in. At the same time, this story would be equally as enjoyable without any background knowledge of Shakespearean literature. Getting to know the characters in this novel was actually quite fun. Young doesn’t simply develop characters individually, but also based on their relationships to one another. This multifaceted character development brings the entire story into vivid clarity. The dialogue has a great flow to it, and sounds the way that people actually talk. Overall, this was a fantastic novel. I found it both original and entertaining. I can’t wait to see what Young comes up with next! Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
