Review: Baiting the Boss by Coleen Kwan

Title: Baiting the Boss
Author: Coleen Kwan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Source: Entangled Indulgence.
Release Date: October 14, 2013
Reviewed by: Jasmyn

For years Grace Owens harbored a secret crush on her boss, Jack Macintyre, the heir to the Macintyre Corporation. But Jack relocates to a remote tropical island after tragedy upends his life, cutting off all contact. Now Grace’s new boss issues an ultimatum: return Jack to the family fold or pack her briefcase and move on.

When she turns up at Jack's bungalow, he can’t deny his attraction to the fiery woman determined to lure him out of his tropical paradise. Little does she know that returning is the last thing he wants—he’s nobody’s boss, and he likes it that way.

If he stays, she'll lose her job. If he goes, she'll lose her heart.

Another winner from Entangled Indulgence this month.  Grace has been sent to find her boss's long lost grandson who ran off to a mostly deserted island after a tragic falling out with the family.  But now the family business needs him back and Grace won't give up until she convinces him to at least give it a shot.

Jack has demons in his past.  When they erupted into an argument with his grandfather he left and swore never to return.  But Grace has ways of making him see things differently and after spending some time with her on his island, he thinks that maybe returning wouldn't be so bad after all - as long as he gets to return with her.

A very touching romance with some fantastic and real characters.  Jack's haunted side comes out when needed, but stays away enough to keep him from being too dark and brooding.  While Grace seems to be full of light and happiness they make for a very interesting and explosive couple.  Jack's family is a great secondary character to help push and pull at the couple the whole time, leaving you wondering at times if they are really going to get their happily ever after or not.
