Review: One Week (HaleStorm #1) by Elisabeth Staab


Michael Hale's company is in jeopardy. In the wake of his father's death and transitioning to CEO, projects are circling the drain and that may cost him everything. Come to find out, the consultant hired to fix things is the "one who got away" many years ago. This time he's playing for keeps, and he intends to win.


Elise Jackson swore she wouldn't come near Michael Hale again. He sucker punched her professionally, and he broke her heart. Still, a job’s a job, and they can both be adults. But high emotion and late nights working lead to passion neither of them can deny.

They have one week. Can the two of them pull Michael's company out of the fire and heal their old wounds?

*I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review*

I kind of have mixed feelings about this one. It was a fun read and that is about it. The characters were fun, the plot was fun and even the smexy scenes were fun. There was not one thing that really stood out to me.

Elisa is hired by Michael's company to consult on a business deal. The last time these two saw each other it did not end well. Elisa was working at HaleStorm as an intern and she grew close with Michael. When her feelings got rejected, she of course was hurt. 

Now he needs her to save his company. Which means working long hours and in close companion. So of course those old feelings come bubbling back up. Michael wants to use this opportunity to explore this attraction again further, for real this time.   

The one thing that did make it more interesting was the whole mystery with other companies stealing their customers and the trouble the ex-lovers were causing. That was what I wanted to know how it would end, not so much the romance plot as that was very predictable.

A book for you if you like light and fluffy reads. I'm giving it 2.5 stars.
