Judith McNaught was not her best with this one. Aside from the fact that I devoured this in one sitting without thinking, I found myself outwardly cringing. The roomie had already read this one and we got a kick out of how bad it actually was. We both enjoy Judith McNaught tremendously, but this is the worse book of hers that we've read. It was cheesy, overly dramatic, completely unbelievable, and just plain silly.

Not as engaging as some of McNaught's other contemporary books, somewhat dated, and her characters lack their normal color and depth, but an engaging story and quick read.

This book did it for me. I know it was outdated and definitely showed it age with some political incorrectness in sexual harassment in the office place, but I loved the story. I thought Nick was arrogant and a user and pulled one over on Lauren. He lead her to believe he was really into her and more than a one night stand. Since she was so innocent she didn't realize what a rake he was, but once she did she was strong and lead him on a merry chase. I liked how he try to make her jealous, yet she didn't cave until he fell hard. I love these kind of stories!!

This is the story of Lauren Danner, a woman who is talked into industrial spying by her family's who never gets the high bid on their building projects. As soon as she gets hired, she goes off for a weekend of fun with Nick Sinclair, a man she met the night before. After starting her new job a few weeks later, she finds that Nick is the president of the company she is spying on.

Lauren is too naive for my taste. Nick could be the poster boy for sexual harrassment in the workplace. I'm sure this book was popular when it was published in 1984, but times have changed and this book feels dated. It's not one of McNaught's best.

This is one of JMs early romances. Hero is a bit of a jerk, but redeems himself with a nice grovel at the end.

In the exclusive, glittering world of business superstars, Nick Sinclair was a legend...

The ruggedly handsome president of Global Industries handled his business the way he handled his women -- with charm, daring and ruthless self-control. A man used to the very best, Nick hired Lauren Danner, and assumed the proud beauty would soon be another easy conquest. But Lauren's flashing wit and rare spirit dazzled him -- and slowly, against his will, he was intrigued, challenged -- and in love.

Yet Lauren was living a lie, a charade that became more dangerous with every passing moment. Trapped in a web of deceit, she fought her growing love for Nick. Her secret could destroy his fragile trust -- and the promise of life with the most compelling man she had ever met!

Judith McNaught never disappoints! I absolutely adored this story. The hero was a bit frustrating at times; however, there were so many LOL moments in this book. Love books that gives me a good laugh! ^.^ I was a bit crushed to see the story was over so soon!
