Worth the Scandal: Worth it By Karen Erickson @karenerickson

Excerpt from Amazon:

Strictly business? Try telling that to her heart…

Worth It, Book 1

Alexander Worth, President and CEO of Worth Luxury Goods, is a man never to be crossed. His unwavering sense of responsibility to the family business requires him to always be in complete and utter control. Until it comes to Tessa Crawford.

She’s quietly professional, shy, voluptuous…and she works for him. Which means she is the one woman he must never touch, no matter how hard his gut twists with need for her.

After rising above her disadvantaged childhood, Tessa knows the last thing she should do is risk throwing it all away by falling into bed with her sexy boss. But on an extended European business trip, all self-imposed barriers burn away in the heat of their sizzling chemistry.

Once back home, though, whispers of corporate espionage turn into full-blown scandal—and Tessa finds out the hard way where Alex’s loyalties lie. Determined to soldier on, she picks herself up and carries on with a secret, yet welcomed burden. Never guessing that Alex will make a reappearance in her life, ready to show her once and for all that family does, indeed, come first.

Warning: Contains a sweet-yet-strong woman, and a bossy alpha male brought to his knees by the woman he desperately loves. Involves enough begging and groveling that the reader may be tempted to “accidentally” leave it for her significant other to “find”. For instructional purposes only, of course!

This was a decent read but not something that set my kindle on fire.  It is your typical girl works for boss and finds him attractive.  They end up hooking up and falling in love.  Tessa seemed flat to me though.  I was kind of hoping that she would turn into this badass heroine that told him where he could take himself.  Alex just seems to be the typical rich boss, who seems to think that he is entitled or something.

I was kind of surprised that Hunter (Alex’s brother) was determined to convince Alex that Tessa was a corporate spy.  It seemed like he didn’t want Alex to find love or be happy.  After Tessa left, Hunter seemed to be pissed off that his brother wanted to find her.  I was disappointed that he wasn’t more supportive.  When Alex finds Tessa, I was pissed that she caved into him as quickly as she did and I was not happy that he blamed her for everything.  I think Tessa should’ve had more backbone and I would have probably liked her more.

All in all, I liked the book.  I would have liked to seen more depth to the main characters but that is a personal preference.
