Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars
If you’ve ever fallen for someone you shouldn’t have, you won’t be able to put down this sweet and touching story of two people thrown together in a big, strait-laced corporation when management ranks are suddenly opened to women.
Katie’s a married, 30-something mom, as prim and proper as a nun. Jack’s a married, 30-something dad, with an irrepressible sense of humor. The last thing either of them expect is to fall for each other.
But that’s exactly what happens as they discover they love the same things, get a kick out of silly pranks, and feel their hearts beating faster when they are in the same room together. Feelings they know could ruin their careers and destroy their families.
What follows will have you holding your breath, laughing out loud, and feeling the enormous anguish that Katie and Jack feel as they are torn between their yearning for each other and their love for their kids and their well-meaning, if sometimes insensitive, spouses.
This is a beautiful story of two good and decent people caught up in something they never anticipated, and the extraordinary power of profound love. Written by an Amazon bestselling author, it is a thoughtful and thoroughly believable read, a story told with extraordinary compassion and just the right ending.
About the Author:
When he was growing up in a rough part of a small Wisconsin town, his mother didn’t set the bar very high for her rebellious middle son. “Just don’t wind up in jail,” she warned him.
It took Karl Jacobs a few years to tame his mischievous spirit, but he wound up in a jail only once, and that was merely to conduct a newspaper interview with a St. Louis alderman arrested in a protest demonstration.
As a writer and reporter with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Karl covered major political and racial issues throughout the country, and became assistant city editor. He later served as press secretary for a United States Senator on Capitol Hill.
When he entered the business world, he worked in the headquarters of major corporations in NYC, New Jersey, and Delaware, winding up as a special assistant to the Vice Chairman of DuPont and vice president-executive communications at Prudential Life Insurance and chief speechwriter for two of its chairmen and CEO’s.
Both of his novels grew out of this mix of experiences. Born and reared in Superior, Wisconsin, Karl is a journalism graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and later returned there to do graduate work in sociology as a Sage Fellow. He and his wife Kay met in high school band when he winked at her on a quarter bet with a fellow trumpet-player. He was 16 and she was 14. He won both the quarter and, eventually, Kay. They have three adult children and now live in Arizona.
