Review:Pregnant by the Rival CEO (Harlequin Desire) by Karen Booth

It was just business. And then she got pregnant...

Anna Langford is ready to be CEO of the family business, but her brother won't give up control. When she sees the opportunity for a major deal, she goes for it, even though it means working with Jacob Lin, her brother's former best friend, the guy she's never quite gotten over--the man her brother now despises. A successful venture capitalist, Jacob makes ruthless moves. And Anna has given him the perfect chance to take revenge on her brother...

What starts as business turns into romance--until Anna learns of Jacob's motives. And an unplanned pregnancy presents them both with the greatest challenge they've ever faced.

What I thought about Pregnant by the Rival CEO

I was definitely hooked on reading this book when I saw the title of this one!  Right from the start, I knew there'd be an interesting premise in this book from Karen Booth.  

Anna Langford (Adam Langford's sister from That Night With The CEO) has been interested in her brother's best friend Jacob Lin since ...forever. But a feud between Adam and Jacob put an end to anything that might happen between them.

Six years later, Anna decides to take a chance on Jacob, even though she knows it will cause problems with her brother. It doesn't take much for Anna and Jacob to end up in bed, and once they do, their continued relationship puts them at risk of losing it all. Business takeover rumors push things to a head, and well, things get rough for the lovely power couple.  Oh, and I did I mention a surprise pregnancy?

Karen Booth does a skillful job of constructing a believable and very heart-warming situation between business rivals here and I loved that the most about this story.  The beginning was a bit a slow for me, and it wasn't until these two get between the sheets that this story took off for me.

I liked how this story was connected to the previous release That Night With The CEO.  Pregnant by the Rival CEO is a great addition to the Langford family story.  I hope there will be more.

Overall, Pregnant by the Rival CEO is a sweet romantic story perfectly sized for an afternoon read.
