Where did the review go?

I really like this series because all heroines are extremely capable business-women. Their father wasn't really a trooper though, and they grew up in a very competitive environment that ruined all familial feelings between the sisters. Now that their father is dead, they are all three owner of their department of the company, with the caveat that they have to make a big enough profit in the first couple of years to keep the ownership.

Tess will make her target with this la
I didn't like the emotional blackmail that Nick put Tess through, that was really not okay. I was with her all the way - until she refused to tell Nick the truth about why she couldn't stop drilling, that is. It would've explained everything to him and he would've backed off. But no, rather than telling him what was going on, she let him think she was a greedy bitch. Convoluted, IMHO.
Heroine is all business because she was raised by a cold father and taught to be competitive even with her siblings. The hero wants her to stop drilling, a move that will cost her a great deal of money and more. Honestly, I had a hard time with the book, its characters and their actions. Most importantly their falling in love wasn't believable for me.
