Summary

Sexy. Intriguing. Easy. Eli Boudreaux's family has built ships and boats in Louisiana for generations. He comes from a hardworking, wealthy family, and his empire is growing by leaps and bounds. At 30 he is the youngest CEO ever to head Bayou Enterprises, cochairing with his eldest brother. His head for business and his no-nonsense work ethic are also quickly making him the best the company has seen in generations. His staff admires him, women adore him, and Eli's family is solid. But he's recently discovered that someone on the inside of his business is stealing from him, and he's determined to find out who.
Kate O'Shaughnessy is hired by companies all over the world to slip inside and investigate every member of the organization from the CEO down to the custodial staff to find the person or persons responsible for embezzling. She's excellent at blending, becoming part of the team, and finding the weakest link. She's smart, she's quick witted, and she's now been hired by Bayou Enterprises, specifically Eli Boudreaux.
The attraction is immediate, and the chemistry is off the charts, but Kate has heard all about Eli's playboy past, and she has a job to do. Sleeping with the boss isn't a part of that job, even if just the sound of her name rolling off that Cajun tongue and the way he fills out a designer suit does make her sweat. Eli's Southern charms surprise Kate. The man whose reputation labels him as a ruthless, callous womanizer is not the man she's coming to know intimately. He's generous and protective, and he makes her smile.
Cracking through Kate's cool, reserved demeanor and discovering her love of sexy, expensive lingerie is a challenge Eli can't resist, but her sweet nature, love of family, and sense of humor pull at him in ways no one else ever has. But when the person responsible for trying to singlehandedly dismantle Eli's empire comes to light, and it's time for Kate to move on, to what lengths will Eli go to keep the woman he's fallen in love with by his side?

Another great series

If you loved kristen Probys Monthomery series you'll love these . Sometimes the stories are a bit ' samey ' but that works for me . I'm now going to sit back and enjoy the whole series and I'm looking forward to it. They are all ' feel-good' books and sometimes that's just what's needed.

Feel good listening

I enjoyed this a lot.
Loved the characters, and it's well read by the narrators. A very engaging story, I'm interested to hear how the the bigger story pans out with the other characters in the story, which is the mark of a good series.
I will definitely be getting some of the following books.

Just okay

I really wanted to like this story bit I found of lacking. I loved the setting and the characters but Kate's role to find the thief kind of got lost.

As far as narration goes, Rachel did a fantastic job, even putting on an accent for Eli's character. Sebastian is a great narrator but I think someone with a true Cajun accent would have been better. It made the story inconsistent and took away from the fantasy.

I really wanted to love this...but,

I am a die hard Sebastian York fan. I will listen to books just because he is the narrator. When I saw him and New Orleans (my favorite place) together I was thrilled!! And while his voice is still perfect, I hope he never utters the words Chere or Bebe again! You can not play a southern Louisiana man without a drawl! I still love him, but that was like nails on a chalk board horrible. To make it worse the female narrator tried (and failed) at the accent. This lead to a pretty bad disconnect between the two parts. Next time you need a Louisiana character, get Brian Troxel, he is amazing!

As for the book...sigh, lackluster, predictable, and at times just bad. The theme of domestic violence and rape were way to lightly thrown around which made the plot seem forced. Characters were far underdeveloped, one demential and average. All that said, if Sebastian York could have pulled off the accent, it would not have hated it.
