Leah Griffin is about to leave for a
company conference that she has put together, but first she
has a bit of business to take care of. Mainly to break up
with her live-in boyfriend and tell him to get out of her
house. So itís not much of a surprise that Leah really
isnít looking for another relationship. However, she is
looking forward to spending some time with her best friend
who is coming to the conference. All Leahís good intentions
seem to disappear once she meets the hotelís conference
service manger. Brandon Long is tall, dark and too sexy.
Best of all he is a bit younger and wants nothing more than
to please Leah, or so it seems.
Kate Edwards has made some serious
changes in her life that just about no one important to her
knows about. Like she bought a condo, changed positions and
most importantly she is moving within two hours of Leah.
Leahís company has hired Kate as a specialty contract
attorney, something Kate is very, very good at. But this
job has also given Kate something she has tried to avoid the
majority of her adult life Ė a secret relationship with
someone she is currently working with. Charles Dixon is
Kateís downfall, he is a hot attorney and a serious bad boy
who Kate has problems saying no to. Now that they will be
within driving distance with each other, Kate wonders just
how this might affect her secret fling with Charles.
Kate and Leah have always backed and
pushed the other since the beginning, and this weekend is no
difference. Leah is amazed to learn of the secret that Kate
has kept from her, but even she can see that Charles makes
her friend happy Ė well when he isnít driving her up the
wall. Kate is happy that Leah dumped her creep and when
they spy Brandon, Kate is only too willing to push Leah into
experiencing Brandon in all ways possible. Passion isnít
the only thing that complicates what was at first a simple
working weekend; however it is the only thing that brings
everyone face to face with his or her heartís desire.
I was surprised when I started reading Taking Care of
Business as I expected an anthology. Instead I
found a very complex book that combined both womenís lives
during a conference they will never forget. The hot and
erotic sex that each couple have was enough to all but turn
on my fire alarms. Kate and Leah are both very strong women
who know what they want and are not afraid to fight or ask
for it. Brandon and Charles have fallen for the perfect
women for them and now just have to get them to agree.
Sometimes when two authors write the same story, I can tell
who did what, however this is not the case in Taking
Care of Business. Everything blends so beautifully
that if I hadnít seen the cover, I would have thought only
one author had written it. If you are looking for an escape
involving strong and professional women and equally strong
and hot men, you cannot go wrong with Ms. Daneís and Ms.
Hartís Taking Care of Business.
