Book & Author Details:
Tempting Jane by Monica Burns
Publication date: 6th March 2018
Genres: Contemporary Romance
When the perfect staffing storm hits Jane Rochester’s temp agency, she winds up being Lincoln Chandler’s assistant for a week. Jane doesn’t do office romance, and her last relationship was one-sided. But one hot kiss from Lincoln changes everything. Now she has to decide if it’s love at first sight or just a fiery physical attraction.
Lincoln Chandler’s been focused on building his real estate development firm into a Fortune 500 company. He wasn’t looking for a relationship—particularly when his last girlfriend married Lincoln’s biggest competitor and took proprietary information with her in the bargain. But Jane Rochester is an undeniable force of nature, and the heat between them might be more than just a few hot nights in the bedroom.
This is a fun, enjoyable book. The characters, including the wider band of sisters, are colourful and witty, and the chemistry between Jane and Lincoln is explosive.
I have one main niggle with this plot line – and that is the office/co worker element of this, given the issues that Jane had with a previous employer.
The story does follow the established formula for a story of this nature. But it is delivered with style.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
