When a business secret is shared, can love survive?

When You Play With The Best…

For years, Anne James has played a dangerous game, secretly manipulating venture capitalist Philippe Lamont into financing her clients. She knew there would be a price to pay for her arrogance. That price, she thought, was three months of negotiated torture as his sexy Girl Friday.

…The Stakes Are High

Anne was wrong. In Philippe's fast paced world of start up investing, the lines between business and personal blur. One misstep, one misplaced confidence, and Anne could lose her heart, her business, and her life.

Anne James has been helping many people get financing for their business ideas by pitching the perfect business plan to the finance company. She has studied the man who owns the company relentlessly and has learned to anticipate his moves and his business needs. The only thing she asks her clients is that they respect her privacy and not divulge her identity to the owner. However, one of her clients, under pressure loses his calm and spills the beans.

Capitalist Phillippe Lamont just cannot believe that a person that he does not know, knows his company well enough to present business ideas that his company needs. This does not sit well with him. He needs to know the identity of this person. Assuming him to be a man, he is surprised when his weak client divulges the fact that the person pitching these perfect business plans is a woman. Thus begins the game of revenge. He forces Anne’s hand and gets her to take a 3 month absence from her business and work in his company. But when original business plans are stolen, and Anne is the only real suspect, should Phillippe trust her?

This novel was a real eye-opener for me. Since I am not interested in business and financing all that much, I did not know what constituted the job. But reading this novel, gave me a very good picture of the financing world. The characters are delightful. They are not stiff, cardboard people, but people with feelings and emotions that reader’s can relate to. Sometimes I felt that Anne was a little too giving and that Phillippe was a bit too demanding than in real life. But this is a work of fiction and those characteristics seem to fit. This was a great read and I look forward to reading more of Ms. Chin’s novels.
