Overview

Falling for his rivals' little sister could cost him everything …

For Liam Trulane, failure is not an option. He is determined to win a place in Katie Summers' life before she leaves Independence Falls for good. But first, he needs to make amends for the last time they got down and dirty.

Only problem?

His professional success hinges on striking a deal to buy Katie's family business. And after Liam's relationship with their Katie went south years ago, the Summers brothers are more enemy than friend. If both parties agree to set the past aside, they can reach an understanding. But when Katie welcomes him back into her bed, Liam risks everything to make her his.

After Liam betrayed her trust, Katie Summers will do anything to keep him from walking away with the family business. She decides to seduce him, knowing that when her brothers find out, they will back off from the deal. And she'll finally have her revenge. But when her plan spirals out of control, Katie learns that payback may come at too high a price …

Liam Trulane and Katie Summers share a bitter past. Liam broke Katie's heart years ago, and she's never gotten over it. When he comes back to Independence Falls to broker a deal to buy Katie's family's business, it raises some painful memories for both of them. She decides to get her revenge while negotiating an agreement that leaves her family on top; however, things don't work out quite as she plans.
Verdict The chemistry between Liam and Katie is presented as a fact rather than allowed to build for the reader, while the secondary characters are underdeveloped. Nonetheless, the couple's relationship is appealing in its push and pull. This latest from Stone (Full Exposure) just misses being a must purchase but will be appreciated by fans of the series.—B.

The story of Liam. Just as good as the first book and a nice continuation. I think there are quite a few potential future books that could be written. There was a bit of angst thinking that the two main characters were never going to get their act together but in the end it all works out.

As posted on The Smutty Kitty reviewed KittyKelly 4 out of 5 Licks After reading Full Exposure (the first book in this series) I was chomping at the bit for book 2.  I was not disappointed.  The tension between Liam and Katie was clear in book 1 and I couldn't wait to hear the back story and see where this was going to go.  Katie was all about the revenge in this one and it did skew my view of her a bit.  I certainly don't begrudge her for not forgiving Liam immediately, but she was definitely holding tight to the woman scorned philosophy and it made her hard to like at times.  Liam was by no means perfect, but he was trying really hard to make up for the past.  There were some super hot moments with these two and some downright hilarious ones.  I loved that we get to see a bit of Georgia and Eric (from Full Exposure) in this one too.  I see on the website there are at least two more books planned in the series and I'm really looking forward to them!!

Sara has done it again, her first book in the Independents Falls series was a combination of ‘can’t touch’ and ‘stay ways’. She showed us she could write about forbidden love and how with the right person we can accomplish just about anything. Well she is back again with book two: Caught In The Act. This story is about two people who had their shot and blew it, big time!  Katie has a few things that keep her from being able to find true love: she has three overprotective brothers, lives in a small town, her dates keep hanging with her brothers more than her, and at seventeen she gave her heart away only to have it stomped on. We first meet Katie in Full Exposure and you can see there is a history between her and Georgia’s brother Liam. You see Katie’s brother’s dislike of him and really any guy Katie dates. Liam however feels he deserves their hatred.  Liam was drawn to Katie all those years ago and has kept his distance after what he did to her. He hated himself for hurting her and for how things ended between them, but now he might have a way to make it up to her and her brothers. His best friend Eric, owner of More Timber, has given him the assignment to buy Summers Family Trucking. The family business is having major financial issues and he is hoping to swoop in and help. He didn’t count of the anger this offer would bring out in Katie, she is not about to let her enemy take over her family’s business.  Feeling cornered and outnumbered Katie devices a plan to keep what has been in her family for generations. Her brothers want to sell, but not if they hear the rumors that she and Liam are sneaking around again. The trick is keeping her heart out of the seduction… Liam is thrilled for a second chance and will do anything even if it means losing everything he has worked his whole life for. Sometimes Love is a risk worth fighting for, even if the cost turns out to be the one person you can’t live without.  Sara Jane Stone has a way of writing this book that surprises the reader, events and ideas are so creative that you can picture the scene unfolding. Liam and Katie have a messy past and a complicated present. As you read you see how stubborn they both are and wonder how on earth this will all turn out. You will love her new book and keep your eyes open for book three Hero By Night coming out in January 2015. Happy reading and remember to keep dreaming!

I loved this book! Sara Jane Stone is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I couldn't stop reading in anticipation of what was going to happen next. Well written with very likable characters and true-to-life emotions. I'm looking forward to more books in the Independence Falls series.
