Synopsis:  Sign: Virgo
He's all business...until he's all hers
Brody Flynn waited years to get his revenge on Douglass Shipping for his parents' accidental deaths. Now the company is fumbling, profits are down, and it's the perfect time for a hostile takeover.Vengeance. But the former CEO's daughter Kate Douglass has other plans...
Kate's been waiting for her chance to take on a real role at Douglass and prove to her family that she's not the fragile piece of glass they all think she is. There's no way she'll give up without a fight. All she has to do is convince the gorgeous new CEO to hire her...and not fall for him.
But Brody was never supposed to feel attracted to the daughter of his enemy. He was never supposed to want her as hard as he does. And the only thing stronger than his hunger for revenge is his hunger for her...

My Thoughts: This was my first Jackie Braun book and I have to say that I really did enjoy it. Brody was devastated when his parents were killed by a driver working for Douglass shipping and he was determined that one day he would avenge his parents death and get his revenge somehow. What Brody didn't expect was Kate Douglass walking into his world and changing things. Kate has all the credentials and great ideas to pull the company out of the hole, but since her father still see's her as his little girl, he doesn't take her seriously. Brody and Kate both learn something from each other. Revenge isn't all its cracked up to be and that the right person can make everything else seem trivial. There's also a lesson in there about not judging a book by its cover, so to speak.
