Jack Reed spells trouble. But has trouble met its match?

The business world trembles at the mere mention of Jack Reed, but Becca Stevens has no such fear. Her pleas for him to end his hostile takeover of Lassiter Media should be laughable.

Fantastic book, filled with all types of emotion. In previous books of the series, JD Lassiter's death and the terms of his will have split the family apart. Taking advantage of the turmoil, Jack is helping Angie Lassiter attempt a hostile takeover of the family company. He is known for acquiring companies and then tearing them apart for maximum profit. Becca has seen the effects this takeover bid is having on the Lassiter's charity foundation and is determined to do something about it.

The Lassiters have not been my favorite dynasty. The will hasn't allowed the family to be shown as a family unit. This book shows Becca Stevens,the director of charities, trying to get Jack Reed to stop helping Angelica to takeover the company.

was a good story. I didn't like the character of Jack to start with but when I finally found out how he was used I changed my mind about him. Becca's character was strong & pushy but I liked her a lot. This whole series has been good, enjoyed reading them & like the idea of each book being written by a different author. They all have their own way of writing but it seems like it's seamless in the progression of the story.
D3218 Aug14 Dynasties: the Lassiters #5 Becca Stevens and Jack Reed. Becca works with the Lassiter Charitable Foundation fund raising. She fights Jack with actions showing him the people involved and results. Jack, corporate raider, is out to break up Lassiter Media. JD Lassiter's will left the business he had promised his only daughter, Angelica Lassiter, to her fiancé, Evan McCain. Good story with Jack pushing buttons to get his way yet getting pulled into things he didn't want.

Not exactly my favorite of this series. I just didn't care for the Becca, the heroine too much.
