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.
