One Week, HaleStorm Book 1 @ElisabethStaab #Review


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?

Here's something you may already know: Elisabeth Staab knows how to write seriously good paranormal romance. Now here's something you may not know:  She writes seriously good contemporary romance as well! One Week brings the best of office romance, swirls in some bad boy gone good, some good girl gone bad and a time crunch to save the day.  It also contains some very amusing office product obsessions, witty dialogue and enough charm to have readers cheering on the hopes of happy-ever-after.

One of the best features of this sassy romantic endeavor are its characters - both primary and secondary. Elise's internal dialogue as she braves her return to the scene of her broken heart and Michael's desperate need to make a success of his late father's failing business is guaranteed to hook the reader. The chemistry between Michael and Elise fairly sizzles on the page but even more importantly, Staab manages to capture the emotional connection between these two people who have harbored an attraction for half a decade and continue to have more than their fair share of doubts and insecurities.

Heroine redeems self, saves the day and wins the a nutshell. And yet there is so much more to the story.  Well written and well paced - the story moves and has enough plot twists and turns that ensure it doesn't feel like deja vu.  And there are enough cleverly placed character introductions that, hopefully, more HaleStorm novels are on the horizon.  And did I neglect to mention seriously sexy romance - in the corporate apartment, in the office, enough to fog my glasses!

If you love your office drama with a side of smokin hot romance, order up One Week and get set to go to your happy place.  **Buy your copy now - special release week sale price**
