Billionaire Lex Rochester has a problem. Someone is trying to sabotage the family company, but the investigation needs to be highly discreet because Lex suspects it’s one of his own relatives. His solution—hire IT security specialist Jacinta Greene, who also happens to be his ex-girlfriend. With Jacinta posing as his newly reconciled girlfriend, the other Rochesters won’t suspect they’re being monitored.
The last thing Jacinta wants is to see Lex again. Their breakup still tortures her, but she’ll do just about anything to help her kid brother, even pretend to reunite with Lex. But the more time she spends with Lex, the more she realizes she’s never gotten over him. Which is bad news, because she and Lex are fatally incompatible.
The fire that still burns between them is as hot and irresistible as ever. Can Jacinta remember what’s real and what’s fake, or will she be hurt by Lex all over again?
Erin: Office espionage is afoot in Coleen Kwan’s novella, Undercover in the CEO’s bed. I must say, that both the hot cover and the blurb were what drew me to this book, along with being a fan of Coleen Kwan’s writing. I wasn’t disappointed. This was a quick and entertaining read.
I have a soft spot for second chance romances, and when sexy CEO Lex Rochester has to contact his IT ex, Jacinta Greene, I just knew that the sparks would fly, and I was right! These two had boat loads of chemistry and I always enjoy watching two people who are meant to be together overcome their own issues and obstacles to see what’s right in front of them. Lex was charismatic and though he’s kind of gruff, you just know he’s got a soft side. And Jacinta was sassy and independent and once she learns to trust him again, all bets are off.
There could have been a bit more character development in this one which would have made me enjoy this even more. But the ending is fabulous, and for that alone, check this one out!
