Someone's leaking information in their company.
To find the culprit, Lex asked Jacinta to help him.
Posing as his girlfriend so she will have an access to the company's info.
It wont raise anyone's suspicion because they used to be a couple.
It's an opportunity that can help Jacinta's brother.
Pretending love each other in public. Pretending to not love each other in private.

The best thing about "Undercover in the CEO's Bed" is the ending. I'm not saying that to be harsh but because its true. The ending was something that I didn't see coming. And truly a refreshing surprise. Overall I liked the book. But being 100% honest most of it was both predictable & forgettable. This is not a book that I would read again. But I would recommend that anyone looking for a beach read or quickie romance read give it a go, because the ending alone is worth it.

#1 in The Rochesters romance series

This was a surprisingly good 2nd-chance-at-love romance--I'd rate it 3.5 stars. Lex and Jacinta were an item at one time and broke up painfully. But they've never forgotten each other or really gotten over each other. Now Lex needs an IT expert to find the leak in his business, and Jacinta would be perfect. But they need to pretend to be boyfriend/girlfriend so no one will suspect her real business. Unfortunately (or fortunately), their real feelings start to s

The premise of this story attracted me as well as the pretty cover. OK, I am shameless in saying I love my pretty covers but this novella goes beyond the cover and I highly recommend it. Undercover in the CEO's Bed was a great quick read, engaging me from the beginning. Immediately I felt connected to the characters and I certainly felt the chemistry between them.

From the moment we meet Jacinta, I knew I liked her, quick, funny, intelligent and sassy. She had never forgotten the short b

Lex has taken over the family company and quickly learns the business isn't doing so well. He soon learns that there is someone leaking information to the media that could cause the company to be put out of business and he suspects that it is a family member from within. There's a long history of family conflicts and that has made the man Lex is and has much to do with the reason he lost a woman that he doesn't truly realize he misses.

Lex has a problem.

Someone in his company is leaking very important information which is hurting his company.

His solution

Enlist his ex-girlfriend and IT tech to help him sniff out the mole in his company while pretending to be his girlfriend so no one suspects.

Easy peasy.

Just one problem Jacinta and Lex had a bad break up and haven't talked in 10 months 2 weeks and 3 days .. but who's counting. Jacinta agrees to this crazy plan on one condition, get her brother a job in Lex's company.

Unfortunately, the storyline for this one fell a little short for me. I get that some people can't trust their family members for a variety of reasons. But the steps Lex feels he needs to take because of it seemed a little extreme. At least they served to bring Jacinta back into his life, even if that wasn't his actual intent. For a good chunk of the story, he's kind of a jerk.

How does it still get three stars then? Well, Jacinta really saved the day. She was beyond amazing as a character. I lo

Lex is the CEO who is having problems with someone leaking information. He makes a deal with his ex--Jacinta (who is an IT expert and can ferret out if something is leaking through digital means)--to help her brother if she finds the mole within three weeks.

Lex and Jacinta had only a sexual relationship before, but this time around they have to deal with their feelings, their families, and both of their trust issues. They were a good couple, and there were more than a few very heated moments.

Lex has some issues with trust and comes to Jacinta with an undercover spy proposal. Jacinta not knowing how strong her feelings for Lex would take her. Knowing that their breakup 10 months prior still affected her. Should she take the job? There, of course, are stipulations to this proposal and Lex never getting over her ask ...more

Lex Rochester needs to know who's sabotaging the family company. He tried to find the culprit but he failed. Now he is forced to ask for help from his ex-lover, Jacinta Greene. Their break-up was brutal. How can he go to now with this problem? Coleen Kwan has created characters that are very complex. Both Lex and Jacinta have deep emotional scars. Now they are guarded and reluctant to trust others. They may feel a strongly attraction to each other, but they will not open their hearts. I found th ...more

***ARC from NetGalley in Exchange for an honest review***

Family can be hell – and that’s the underlying theme in this book. Lex needs undercover help to find a traitor (who he thinks is family). Jacinta agrees (to help her brother). Sparks still fly between these two and it’s not long before they both succumb to it in the midst of all this drama. I felt both characters needed development…in relation to each other and to their families – the driving force behind this farce. Passion filled moment

This book is a second chance romance type setting. The two of them were explosive off the charts in the sexual chemistry but thanks to family loyalty, previous instances, and the past. Their romance blows up and fizzles out. Now months later Lex needs Jacinta's help.

Undercover in the CEO's Bed was a quick, steamy and entertaining read.

The characters were interesting and drew me into their story.

I enjoyed seeing Lex slowly opening his eyes and heart and seeing how he had shut everyone out of his life because of his trust issues.

It was well written and I will be reading more from Coleen Kwan in the future.

Thank you to Netgalley and Entangled Indulgence for the ARC in exchange for my honest thoughts.

Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

Another solid Entangled read. Not sure about the cover though - whilst I undeniably can't stop staring at it, I'm not sure it suited the book? Hmm, maybe I'll have to stare some more to decide.

Anyway, this is one of those romances which I enjoy on a surface level but I'm not sure I remain entirely convinced by the enduring love between Lex and Jacinta.

*eARC from Entangled Publishing*

I liked this book but it wasn't amazing. This is the first book I have read by this author.

I thought the book was kinda dull. Nothing really happened. I was hoping something big was going to happen, but that didn't happen. I only liked the book.

I Liked Jacinta. Though i did think that she babied her brother to much.
I also liked Lex, though he had the same problem as Jacinta did. He covered his father's ass was to much.

I was super bored from beginning to end. I just kept waiting for something epic to happen and was left waiting. Even the climax and sex scenes were boring and kinda predictable. I never really felt like I knew who either of the lead characters were even in the end. Only upside is I didn't have to pay for it.

After a very bad break up the last thing Jacinta wants is to help Lex. But he's desperate so they strike a deal! You will want to read this one and find out what happens. It is wonderfully written and very entertaining. I highly recommend it.

Stubbornness on both sides, but loved the attraction they had for each other.

Little bit of corporate espionage.

My one complaint is Jacinda's weakness around Lex. I mean come on...

Other than that she's a strong smart woman. :P
