This book was not for me. A lot of people liked it (evidenced by the reviews that persuaded me) so read the reviews and decide if this is the type of thing you enjoy. You might like it. I, however, did not enjoy it. At all. Below are my reasons. Use it to help you make an informed choice about whether this might be a good book fit for you.
I thought the hero was a huge jerk and the heroine came across as a spineless wimp. It enrages me when a hero treats a woman poorly but all is fo ...more
Worth the Scandal is the first book in the Worth It series by Karen Erickson and it looks very promising. I can tell you right now I will definitely be looking for the other two books in the series to read about the other two Worth brothers. The first story is about Alexander Worth, CEO of Worth Luxury Goods and oldest brother of the family. He took his family’s company and made it into a very solvent international company with stores all over Europ ...more
Alex is rude, harsh and totally self absorbed and he was the biggest jerk to poor little Tessa. He would start something with her only to completely shut her out just minutes later, without fini ...more
Alex guards his heart like a hawk, not letting anyone come near it. That is, until he meets Tessa, who knocks him right off his feet. Being a typical male, and very set in his ways, he takes basically forever to thaw and let Tessa in. If I'm to point out one problem with this book, is that we don't get enough b ...more
Tessa wants to keep her job as Alex's assistant but loses a little piece of her heart to him every day. Her naivete is a little wearing at times, but you can't help but empathize with her. She does fare better than Alex by living somewhat vicari ...more

Okay. Let's get straight to the point.
- I don't know, but it's just me. I kind of liked the concept - an alpha male and a shy innocent female. Perhaps the buzz about it being like FSOG had something to it. However, it's just rather me.
- I like the ending. I wish it didn't have to be a year long.
- The female is a doormat.
- The guy is way a bit over the top. And at one point, doesn't do well with reason.
- Guy couldn't handle blames & kinda quick to judge
- Guy's a bit ...more
Tessa was the assistant for Alex worth. She was really good at her job. The chemistry was there from the beginning, but the two tried kept everything professional. That is until they went on a business trip together. That is when the book heated up. This one had surprises, twist and turns, and was worth the read.
Yep, it's one of those.
Is getting involved with the boss worth the scandal?

Especially the meaningless women flitting in and out of his life mostly for appearances sake. The only bright spot to his days is his efficient and sweetly innocent secretary. Tessa's demure appear ...more

Worth the scandal? Perhaps. Worth my time? Nope!
The Heroine was a passive doormat who let the hero (a condescending, self-serving jerk) walk all over her. And it only took a few hours after they meet again a year after he hurt her for the woman to forgive him.
NOT an enjoyable read
