About the Book
Lacey O’Connor is finally a sure thing for the promotion she’s spent ten years working for. But when a scandal rocks her firm she finds herself on a collision course with the one person she has spent five years trying to forget. Only to discover he doesn’t even remember her…
Victor Carlisle has spent the last three years trying to convince his family he’s no longer the playboy alcoholic who tore their life apart. When a company merger is announced with a US sister firm, he’s presented with the perfect opportunity to prove he’s changed. Only to find himself falling for his competition and the one woman his family will never accept.
As the competition intensifies the choice looms between the professional and the personal. Can they find a way beyond their past decisions and present aspirations to take a chance on the one thing they’re not looking for?
In My Opinion
If you have not yet read a novel written by Kara Isaac, run to your nearest bookstore (or the internet) and buy one now. You will not regret it.
Start With Me is a beautiful story of two broken people drawn together despite their pasts, their present, their expectations, or the threat of losing their jobs. Lacey and Victor are fighting for their jobs in two companies dealing with scandal—but they’re also fighting for acceptance and love from the important people in their lives, whether they realize it or not.
The rapport between Lacey and Victor is humorous at times and endearing at others. Isaac fans have met Victor before, and the man didn’t come off in a good light but he is redeemed in this book.
Witty dialogue, familiar characters from a couple of Isaac’s previous books, and the job scenarios make this book good. The journey Lacey and Victor take to digging up their painful pasts and the incidents that shaped who they are today and their overcoming those are what make this book great.
