The Money Man- Nancy Herkness (ARC)
The Money Man
Releasing April 14, 2020
Nancy Herkness has a killer book here with The Money Man. The thing that I wanna start off by saying is that, my day job is that of a bookkeeper. So, when there were talking about software that would integrate cashless information and balancing with software verses paper and pen, I was really into it. I understood what they were doing. I know what they were talking about most of the time, but I don’t know what the others that are just reading it casually will take from it. In the book, they talk about how they like numbers because they are consistent. And I’ve said that several time. So, career accurate.
Now, lets talk about the storyline now that I’ve fangirled over the career of the main characters. Oh, wait… okay so the entire point is that the bookkeeper discovers bookkeeping errors that allow for her to contact this larger company to consult with her. Which is pretty great. Even then, she still uncovers the truth because sometimes you have to do a thorough audit.
Bad guys are out to get the girl. The guy is super smart and acknowledges her super smartness. They both do work and research along with the rest of the team to get to the nitty gritty of the scheme. There is a lot of really interesting badassary of its own kind in here that we have to look at. There is a lot of times that you really know that things are going to go bad at some point.
This is a great bit of sexiness in the story here. There are sexy times with, not an alpha male, but the guy next door. Derrick is the guy that we all wish could be our guy. He’s busy with a company and still wants to be involved with her. He wants to protect her but without the “Me Tarzan, You Jane” attitude that is so common it seems these days. I love the story they share and the way that we know how they work together because, well, numbers bind them and keep them together.
Overall, this is a great story and I can’t wait to read the next stories in the series to see how these characters will also get their HEAs.
Peace and happiness!
