This is one of JAK's early books, written as Stephanie James in the late '80's and it is unreal. A career business woman is accused by her boss of sleeping her way to a promotion, for which he admits she is the most qualified candidate, and then he refuses to promote her because she should have slept with him! And she takes this abuse; she not only takes it, but when he suggests she sleep with him as he can do more for her career, she agrees so she can get revenge! It is this kind of drivel that has weighed down women's chances of being accepted as rational adults who have the right to be treated as rational adults who mean what they say when they say it. bijou2311 wrote a perfect review for this book; I wish I'd read it before I spent the $$! If you like idiot women who let men manipulate them and if you like idiot men who can't see past their 'manhood', you're going to love this mess; if you like real people facing dramatic situations and dealing with them, you'll be like me and hate it. I love JAK and have read everything she's written since she graduated from this 8th grade romance genre. Do yourself a favor and stick with her real books and give this mess a pass!
I love JAK and have read about 90 percent of her books. This one is a real product of its time. Today, Elissa would have gone to human resources and filed a complaint against Taggert for his bullying. However, when it was written society viewed the behavior in a much different way.
I have yet to read a book by Jayne Ann Krentz that I haven't liked! She knows how to tell a story like no one else. I was riveted from start to finish!
This book was so awesomely bad that I started reading it, but then just couldn't finish it. I have to give it 1 star, because that's what Amazon requires, but the part I read was pure drivel. As many reviewers have pointed out, this is a 20-year-old Jayne Ann Krentz book written for Harlquin under a psuedonym. Her writing (and characters) have improved IMMENSELY over the years, but this is one of those books that is just best forgotten. I understand that's good business for Harlequin to cash in on Krentz' success by reissuing some of her old novels for them, but was this the best they had to work with?

It starts off and you've got a woman named Elissa who has been called into her boss's office to be told, point-blank, that she's being denied for a promotion -- for which the boss admits that Elissa is the most qualified -- because he thinks that she slept with another boss...that's she's sleeping her way to the top. The boss (Wade) refuses to believe Elissa's protestations. Seems he's been stalking her for a while and has observed all these instances in which she's met up with the guy he's accusing her of sleeping with. (Evidently, Elissa's helping the guy plan a surprise birthday party for his wife, June. Suuuuuuuuure, Wade thinks. Likely story!) Elissa points out that what Wade is doing is called sexual harrassment and that it's illegal, but that doesn't seem to bother him much, because he's one of those jerkwads who seems to believe that if HE can't have her, NOBODY can have her. (Seriously...I kept expecting him to whip out a bowie knife, in true Lifetime Movie of the Week fashion, and start hacking her to bits screaming, "You're mine! Mine!" Scary stuff.) After thirty pages or so pages had passed and Elissa was still sitting there taking this crap off this major loser, I had to put the book down and walk away. Maybe it gets better, but I just don't see how it could, and I don't have enough masochistic interest to find out.
I'm a huge JK fan, and am trying to read everything she's written under her various pseudonyms, provided Amazon readers give the story 3 stars or better.

This is the fourth book I've read by "Stephanie James" and I an so disgusted I've decided not to read anymore by this "version" of JK. I understand the Stephanie James persona is one of her first, and perhaps her editor at the time told her implied violence sells. While the storyline isn't great (fairly unbelievable and very dated, as many others have already noted), Wade's threats to beat Elissa, which are scattered through out the book, make this one a "Loser" with a capital L.

(Note: Raven's Prey, another Stephanie James book, contains scenes where the "hero" imagines raping the heroine. That one got 1 star from me too. I haven't rated any other JK books because there are lots of helpful reviews out there, already.)

For those who want examples, here's one from Chapter 8 - suggest you don't read further if you have abuse issues:

[Wade says]: "I am going to beat you, Elissa Shedon. Another new experience for you, I'll bet. I'd stake a lot of money on the idea that no one's ever even thought of doing such a thing to sweet charming Elissa!"

A few sentences later, after Elissa begs Wade not to hurt her . . . [He]: "When I arrived at your door this evening . . . I was in a good mood. I want to be restored to that mood."

And her response: "I'sn't there . . " She moistened her lips and tried again, eyes wide and pleading. "I'snt there anything besides beating me that will restore your better mood?"

YUCK! What prompted JK to write such garbage?
