The hero Brock has just discovered that his secretary and long term lover Elle, the heroine, has been giving away business information to his biggest rival. He is confused about his feelings as Elle meant something to him and he has no idea why she would do this to him. Things go from bad to worse when he goes to confront Elle and discovers she is pregnant. He insists they marry, he wants both a part in his child's life and to keep an eye on Elle.
Elle is also confused, she hated betraying Brock

Brock Maddox has found out that the woman he has been having an affair with, his very own secretary, is also the one to betray him to his worse competitor. He discovers she is the illegitimate granddaughter of his enemy,and worse yet, the future mother of HIS child.

Elle has betrayed Brock, destroying her own chance at happiness in order to save her own mother from a devasating death by allowing her grandfather to use her to spy on the enemy in exchange for the payments for an experimental treat

I was conflicted on this one. It features some of my least favorite themes -- secret baby, marrying for the baby, deception. But... The story is actually pretty good. I was so glad that when the hero doubts the heroine's honesty once again, the truth is revealed long before she leaves him. Those misunderstandings usually go on way too long and then are cleared up in the blink of an eye. This one was cleared up almost before it began. I thank the author for that. Borderline C+/B- for me, but I'll ...more

There was A LOT going on in this book!! Of course, I found out that it is the 6th in the series!! I liked that he believed in her even when he "should not have."

What I don't understand is why these people are so "high-powered" and dumb. Serioulsy? She could have gone public with her story and ruined her dear, sweet grandpapa...but then she's basically a decent person.

Too bad for her.

It's an okay read, but it could have been a lot better. It just felt as though the author was going too easy on the characters... every time a conflict arose, rather than using it and showing the characters growth through it, the author backed off and the couple got the easy way out. seemed a bit odd, because the story itself had all sorts of potential for drama.

The hero drove me up the wall in this novel. Gosh, just flipping through the novel again made me want to throw it against the wall. He was arrogant, cruel and unusual. He wanted everything his own way and for a while made the heroines life hell. I was saddened for her.

This book was a lot better than I thought it would be. Elle’s mother needed expensive cancer treatment medicine. The only way that her grandfather would pay for the medicine was for Elle to be a spy on the competition. Elle never expected to fall in love while working at the other company gathering secretes against it. She worked as Brock’s personal secretary. They had really good chemistry in, and out of the office. Brock was shocked to learn that Elle betrayed him, he was even more shocked to ...more

Kinda different from the books that I've read before. This one seems... Enjoyable? This book makes me realize that I've a wonderful mother and thank god I'm not born by some one like Brock's mother. As what the brothers call her - the witch. Lol.

Shall not reveal too much of the plot and enjoy this book with a cup of coffee.

it was so so .. for me it was still unclear about what has been done by elle in spying brock's company. however, i like brock's effort in knowing personal issues to get to know deeper of elle's personality.
after all, it's a woman's novel. not expecting so much ..

In all fairness, I should have probably read the other books prior to reading this one, but I felt like I didn't really need all the back story. I was a decent book. Just not as good as I had expected.

klišé, ale stejně tyhle typy prostě číst budu. člověk někdy to klišé k životu potřebuje.

Didn't end how I thought it would. Even though Elle had made mistakes - and she had to deal with the results of those she betrayed. The ultimate betrayal wasn't done by her...and it took Brock a little while to figure it out.

Kinda wished there was another in the series or at least more on the others.

This was probably the most anticipated story of the series for me. I thought there story would be right after his brother's. Elle had been selling trade secrets to Brock's biggest threat. She did it to save her mother's life but it still killed her because she loved Brock. She was relieved he found out but when he found out she was pregnant that changed everything. Can he ever truly trust Elle again and more importantly can she ever truly forgive herself.

Maddox Communication, CEO Brock Maddox had been betrayed by his lover...his own secretary, Elle Linton. He things one thing but it is something different and he feels the need to propose marriage. In this little arrangement love is not a part of the package until it does become the answer to the issue at hand.

Not a great story but a quick read.

i really loved this. i knew from previous books that these two would end up together and i'm so glad they got their story told. this whole series has been a treat and i love that they were all written by different authors.

I liked it, and might just have to read the rest or the series (Kings of the Boardroom). I'm definitely checking out the author.
