I wish it I could give it negative stars (Will it still be a star? Will it be a black hole?). Anyway, when I read the blurb, I thought to myself,"The protagonist is an analyst, like me. This is going to be worth my time." I couldn't have been more mistaken. It started off well, with all the group meetings and presentations, but rapidly disintegrated into a gooey, overly emotional drama involving lots of Chanel dresses and Russian models who wonder if freesia would have looked better in their bri ...more

16% "Nothing has happened. There is no character depth or development and no conflict, tension or reason to keep reading. So I won’t."

And I didn't. Shame really, because the cover is stunning and the blurb was very enticing.

I really liked this story. Jane and Franklin are an interesting couple. They are meant to be together. Franklin is a jerk for what he did to Jane. Let's see in the next book if Jane forgives him.

Great Romance

Well written. Some grammatical errors. Loved the storyline, romance and humor. Never dull. Contains some profanity. Great character development even though Jane's family could have been more developed.

Talk about a cliffhanger! Desire lures you in with two powerful individuals that do not get along very well at work. Their feuding is interesting and you'd never expect them to start a relationship...until they do. The two complement each other perfectly, but at work their professional lives are strictly professional. As the relationship gets more serious, secrets are revealed and one brings the relationship to a breaking point. What will happen between them?

For Love or Money??

Money can't always buy what you want. Certainly not Love. When Franklin enters into an office bet on who will get Jane or Rebecca in bed first he has no idea he will fall in love with Jane in the process, for real! When Jane finds out nine months later about the bet she is furious and breaks it off. Will her heart forgive Frank,or will she let Anger run her life?

Love not for sale.

When two people from different backgrounds compete, its usually the one with the better background wins. This story reminded us that love is priceless. Were all equal. This book was one that couldn't be put down until finished. All the characters were well liked and interesting. Looking forward to the next book.

This book was ok. Again, the title and cover tells nothing about the story of two twenty-somethings starting a corporate job where they are colleagues/competitors. Romance had promise, but ended in a cliffhanger just as it was getting good. Not compelling enough to read the other books.

A lazy day

I started this book after finishing my News Paper. And finished it very late the Same night..
I loved it . It was interesting , warm. Beautifully written...
But cannot seem to locate Book 2.

Business Fast lane

Good look at the Corporate fast lane existence and the hardcore reality there in. Relationships in the same company not recommended. Needs a better review of mistakes in execution for readers.

Good reading

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! Would very much appreciate your sending me the next episode! One could really get to know the characters involved! Particularly the fact that elderly characters were introduced!!!

I fell into the story

The few typos didn't stop me from enjoying this book. Office romances are difficult to pull off. I thought this book did it very well.

Good story

Interesting but predictable at times. Made for easy reading. Was a free book, so not sure I would want to continue. The story is pretty much told.

“I really like you. And if you want, I’d like to keep this going past tomorrow.”

I like Desire! Although it's written in third person, I like it. It gives a different perspective to the readers while they read the story. It's feels like you can understand the persons involved in the story but you still be the viewer, not someone who can be attached with them. However, I truly can't wait to start reading the second book, called Dedication so I can find out what would happ

Just plain romance

I really enjoyed this book. No murders, no who done its. Just people falling in love the way it should be. But people are people and make mistakes. Its what they do at those times that matters. I am going to have to read the next book to see the finale of this couple that I'm rooting for.

Not so romantic...

Not so romantic, curses & materialistic. Cursing is an automatic romance killer. Materialism can be fun but the words a man says to his lady should be deeper than the surface of things... May the next book be a truer romantic effort.

Tale of rich, beautiful, body perfect, twenty somethings that should be a short story but is stretched to a novel. Tad superficial with less than exciting plot and unnecessary detail
