In the latest kicky romance from Esdaile (Keepin' It Real), Philadelphia CPA Karin Michaels does a 180 for love when her firm lands an account with hunky rap star Jacques Bernard "J.B." Dubois. At J.B.'s insistence, Karin plans to fly to his Caribbean home to examine his books and determine the extent of his tax difficulties. When her boss decides to send another accountant to handle J.B., Karin makes an uncharacteristically bold move: she ignores her boss's wishes and accepts J.B.'s offer to fly her out on his private jet, ostensibly to make sure the "skittish client" doesn't bolt. Once she gets to St. Lucia, however, this conscientious accountant abandons her job almost entirely to engage in a heated affair with the rap giant. The relationship that develops between this unlikely pair is unique and engaging, and the author's rich descriptions of St. Lucia add an extra dimension of sensuality to the tryst. Karin's impulsive decision to ditch her duties and run off with a celebrity doesn't ever quite jibe with her serious, career-minded persona, but those with a sturdy suspension of disbelief should find a lot to like in this sunny, sexy romp. (Oct.)

I've never come across a romance read as short, wrapping up as smooth, and coming across so believable! It had to be that opening, Esdaile speaking a language I know all too well (...raggedy as a bowl of yock - LOL)!
What else can I say but what a tease... wheeling readers in and spitting them out before they know it! The perfect beach read.
Karin is invited to Jacque's concert while in Philadelphia and takes her "stuck up" doctor boyfriend, Lloyd. This is a fun read as Karin enjoys herself at the concert.
Karin has to travel to Jacques home in St. Lucia to look over his books and this is where she better understands his lifestyle while their attraction for one another truly surfaces especially with the sly help of Jacques housekeeper, Mrs. Orville.
This was an enjoyable story and one that you have to keep reading until finished.
