Summary

She’s small-town business. He’s Manhattan high finance. Together they ignite in a novel about unexpected love and danger by Nancy Herkness, award-winning author of the Wager of Hearts series.

New Jersey bookkeeper Alice Thurber has a carefully constructed risk-free life. Everything in perfect balance. Until little discrepancies show up in her clients’ accounts. Most would ignore it. Not the impeccably precise Alice. In desperation she reaches out to a high-powered consulting firm for help. New York City’s movie-star handsome financial wizard Derek Killion reaches back. All he has to do is smile and Alice’s fantasies stir. A girl can dream, can’t she?

A cofounder of KRG, Derek’s promise is to advise small-business owners in trouble. He never guessed that assisting the diffident but sexy Alice would be so captivating and make it so hard to keep his desires in check. But just as intriguing is the alarming puzzle behind the computer glitch that’s unsettled his client. As the investigation unfolds, they must also confront an attraction too palpable to ignore. Every new dark twist they follow is only bringing them closer together - in passion and in danger.

Awful

Thought this was going to be a financial thriller. It soon turned into what can only be described as a soft porn novel. And not a very good one at that Couldn’t finish it.

Awful.

Terrible narrator. Story is weak. Female lead is wimpy, submissive and ocd. I wish this genre's writers would realize not everyone is in their 30's, all lead women are not just "ordinary" and that all problems do not stem from their childhood. We also do not need to know the exact brand and/or cost of what characters wear or use. I wonder if writers get bonuses for mentioning such brands. I would not waste a credit on this story. I didn't even finish it and have it from kindle unlimited. Returned.

Hunt for Cyber Criminals

I was in the mood for a romantic suspense story. This Kindle Unlimited listen fit the bill in that it had a reasonable amount of romance and mystery. Two workaholic accountants chase cyber thieves after a series of minor accounting discrepancies point to criminal activity. The storyline was somewhat unique. However, it felt a little bit like a story written a decade ago and then updated to be more current. Narrator Laurie West is the voice for all of the characters and is easy to listen to. She does an admirable job making each character distinct. She invokes the appropriate accents and changes her cadence as she performs so that each character is recognizable to listeners. There were a significant number of male characters. The addition of a male narrator would have enhanced the listening experience.

Can an accounting software glitch lead to love?

Bookkeeper Alice can’t find the $3 shortage in one of her client’s books. She reaches out to a large accounting firm, through a small business initiative program, and is pleasantly surprised when one of the partners contacts her directly. Derek Killion is busy preparing for a presentation to a large Asian client but decides to meet with Alice. Derek is impressed with Alice’s intelligence and doggedness...and he is insanely attracted to her. Alice lives vicariously through her historical romances and immediately casts Derek as one of her book boyfriends. As the pair work together, and explore their mutual attraction, it becomes obvious that Alice has stumbled upon a scam. Can Derek keep her safe and gather evidence of the crime? Love the seemingly simplicity of the story. Very engaging and enjoyable.

Wow... innocence, suspense, sex!

This quick read kept me on my toes from page 1 through the end! The story of an innocent small business owner who inadvertently becomes entangled in an international scam. As for the sex and romance, pick up the book… You won’t be disappointed.

DISAPPOINTING!

I usually love Nancy Herkness. I did not enjoy this one so much. The heroine was too wishy washy and the narration was terrible.

Good story

I actually read the second book in this series first and really enjoyed it so I wanted to read this one. It was fun- I liked both the characters, Alice and Derek. Alice, especially, is a fun character- a little obsessive which makes her a great book keeper. Derek is, from the beginning, sweet and I loved their interactions. There was romance, steaminess and a bit of intrigue and action so overall, a well rounded story. This was a little drawn out but overall, I never lost interest. I love kindle unlimited's read and listen program and I got to listen to the audiobook through that program. And it was well done- Laurie West played all the characters really well and she paced herself really well. I enjoyed the narration but did wish there was also a male voice.
