Product Description

Chantal Jones is going through a rough patch. A divorced single mother to two demanding boys, she’s constantly putting the needs of others before her own. She’s exhausted, and the only thing that fuels her fantasies these days is her sexy, off-limits boss, Ronan Nakata.

Ronan has definitely noticed how attractive Chantal is, but he’s her employer and their relationship has to remain strictly professional. Besides, he isn’t looking for anything serious and the last thing he wants to do is get emotionally involved.

But when a chance encounter in the company elevator leaves them both strung tight and wanting, taking it to the next level is seemingly inevitable. In such close quarters, will they be able to get their attraction out of their systems without losing their hearts?

Chantal Jones is a single mom of two boys, Luke and Owen, and the Vice President of Marketing at her company. She works hard and struggles to be a great mom after her ex-husband Mike left her for their personal trainer, Gina. Chantal struggles with her self-esteem from this and is trying to find her happiness.

Ronan Nakata is the gorgeous president of the company Chantal works for and has been a subject of many of Chantal's daydreams. When a blunder causes Chantal to mention a sexual comment to Ronan, she is afraid she may have risked her job, but instead Ronan somewhat propositions to her, as long as she is in control of what she wants.

As Ronan and Chantal begin a sexual relationship, will it turn into more or will both of their past relationships halt any chance of a real relationship and will Chantal truly discover what she is worth?

I really enjoyed this book as it looks at so many issues that single moms face. Chantal was trying to be there for her boys and make up for anything that her ex did that caused the boys anxiety. She was awesome at really trying to keep from saying bad about Mike with them and it was nice to see, even though Mike really deserved it. She also worked her butt to prove herself in the workplace and it showed as well, which gave her the money to support her boys.

I liked Ronan but totally understood where Chantal was coming from in calling him on his distance to her. I give her credit for knowing when to break it off when she realized he really wasn't appreciating her the way he should have!

This was the first time I have read a book by the author but it certainly won't be my last.
HASH(0x9d29ec24) out of 5 stars Loved Chantal's journey Feb. 13 2016
By Amazon Customer M - Published on
Format: Paperback
For the last year, Chantal has been dealing with a lot -- a divorce, two rambunctious boys and demanding VP job in Marketing. To say her sex life has taken a major hit is an understatement, and there's some lingering confidence issues as a result of her husband's affair and subsequent divorce. She's on auto-pilot -- working and taking care of her boys and her job, without getting much of an opportunity to think about herself.

As she experiences a sexual reawakening, she finds herself fantasizing about her boss, Ronan Nakata. The sexy Japanese businessman is at the center of her fantasies, and one fateful morning she happens to get stuck on an elevator with her boss. Now I have to say that some of the beginnings of their relationship had my eyebrows in my hairline, as Chantal crosses some unwritten work rules regarding office behavior, but Ronan is definitely interested in Chantal as well.

There's only one caveat to their budding sexual relationship. Ronan puts Chantal in charge, and he wants her to call the shots when it comes to their relationship. While this arrangement empowers Chantal on one hand, it also keeps Ronan from investing in the relationship. It isn't long before Chantal realizes that she wants more than just sex in their relationship.

I adored Chantal's journey of reclaiming her life back after the divorce. Audra North does a lovely job of giving dimension to her character as she discovers her worth and what she wants in life. I read a lot of romance, and A Woman's Worth had a fresh take on giving your heart to a partner without losing your own sense of self worth, and I loved that about this story.

Format: Paperback
A Woman's Worth by Audra North is quite unique. The story centers around two executives who work for the same company, Chantal Jones, Vice-President of Marketing, and Ronan Nakata, CEO. Chanel is recently divorced, and the primary custodial parent of her two young sons. Mike, her ex, is a complete jerk, and up until recently Chantal has had some difficulty standing up to him. Ronan is hot, and in Chantal's very little free time, she fantasizes about him. Little did she know that her fantasies would become real, only with her calling the shots, as they relate to their sexy times.

I liked this story, although it took me a little while to get used to the fact that the woman held all the sexual power. As the story went on, I felt Chantal's despair about this situation, even though she was gaining worth and confidence in the process. However, Ronan redeems himself when he finally lets her in to his life completely, realizing that Chantal wants him for him, not what he can do for her both professionally and personally, unlike his first wife.

Ms. North pens an interesting read and I was cheering for Chantal every step of the way. Power in the bedroom led to her standing up for herself for the first time in her life. Chantal evolved, using her new found worth in many circumstances. Unknowingly, Ronan helped create a truly remarkable woman, and he benefited greatly. Chantal saved the account their company was losing and he fell for her, without even trying.

Overall, a solid, well-written read.

Chantal Jones is a single mother of two boys and is moving forward with her life after her husband dumped her for another woman.

Ronan Nakata is Chantal's very sexy boss who has been starring in her fantasies for awhile. Ronan has definitely noticed Chantal but knows their relationship has to be strictly professional, until a chance encounter in the elevator opens up the possibility of something more.

Audra North has written a great book that shows a woman coming into her inner power. Not just building her confidence in herself but finally giving a voice to what she wants and needs sexually.

Some might think that Ronan wasn't a very dominant alpha male but I disagree. By making Chantal take control of her desires and calling the shots, he was able to keep his feelings from developing out of his comfort zone. By handing her the power in the bedroom, he could keep control of the situation.

But the best part was seeing Chantal evolve into a confident woman who could stand up for herself regarding her ex husband. She didn't need anyone to take over her life and deal with life's messes. And when push came to shove, she was able to open herself up to Ronan, letting him know she needed more from him and their relationship.

I loved the steamy scenes in this book. Chantal was so repressed from her disastrous marriage that her imagination had her primed for Ronan. Almost every little encounter she had with Ronan ended with wet panties and butterflies in your stomach! She became a woman with a mission and that was to get her boss naked!

By Jennifer Pierson: The Power of Three Readers - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the first time I've read Audra North, and I enjoyed this story. Chantal Jones is going through a rough time. She's newly divorced with two demanding boys, after her husband cheated on her. Everyone's needs are put before hers, and she simply exhausted, with her only break from life is fantasizing about her hot boss, Ronan Nakata. He's noticed her, and feels a connection, but their relationship must stay professional, plus from his past relationship demons, he isn't willing to give more than scratching an itch. When a chance encounter gets heated, will they be able to be friends with benefits or lose their hearts?

I really wish this story had been longer, so that character development could have been more in depth, as Ronan has a big air of mystery about him still. A fast paced story line flows smoothly, and I devoured it in one sitting. Hot flash worthy sexy scenes were awesome, and the well placed humor (her boys mouths) had me laughing hard. It was super easy to get lost in the story, making it hard to put down, but the ending felt a bit rushed. I will be reading more by Audra North in the future, so I happily recommend.
