KISS ME TWICE
KISS ME TWICE (4) by Geri Guillaume: Bastien Thibeadaux is miserable in his family's grain-export business. His cousin and his mean grandfather, G-Paw, destroy his confidence and his self-worth. When he hires health, safety and environmental consultant Phaedra Burke-Carter, her feelings for Bastien surface, and she can't treat him in a strictly professional manner. Bastien falls for Phaedra and tries to prove to her that she can be professional and love him too. What will happen when she puts everything on the line to prove her love? Bastien's family loyalty make him a character to root for, and Phaedra's naïvete and conflicting emotions are endearing. Well-written characters -- the bad guys are really, really bad -- and a perfectly paced story yield a great book.
