This ARC was provided to me via Kindle by Random House Publishing Group- Ballantine and #NetGalley for my honest opinion. Opinions expressed are completely my own.

I would’ve liked the women to be more empowered, especially since it was a take on the #metoo movement. I feel like the women involved could’ve broken off and formed their own agency, had a more powerful story without pandering to the men in the story. It’s formulaic Danielle Steel though, women needing men in some fashion. It’s still my guilty pleasure. You know exactly what you get when you pick up a Danielle Steel book. That’s okay if that’s what you seek.

This book was sent to me by Netgalley electronically for review…I have read every book by this author and enjoyed many. This one is romance…there are too many explicit scenes for me, but others may not mind…I just skip those…the story is about romance but a,so big business and harassment…this theme runs through. It is evident that this author is ingenious at weaving a story.
