Never judge a geek by her cover... 
Simon Lamont is an ice-cold corporate pirate. He buys companies, strips them of their assets, and moves on. With money. Lots and lots of money. But when he arrives in San Francisco to acquire a floundering company and is accosted by a cute engineer with fire in her eyes, it takes all Simon has to maintain his legendary cool. 
Helen Winston has mastered hiding behind geeky clothes and an obsessive dedication to her job. So what’s with her desire for the arrogant—and sexy as sin—Simon Lamont? He may have only been wearing a towel when they met, but he’s planning to destroy her company, and Helen will do whatever it takes to change his mind. If that means becoming the sexy woman Simon didn't know he wanted, so be it. If only she wasn’t about to walk into her own trap...

Cover:  Simple but kind of elegant cover.

I went in to this book with limited expectations.  I was looking for a quick, easy read.
And it was that.
But I actually found myself hooked, and invested in the romance very early on.
Yes- it was extremely cheesy.  Almost old school Harlequin.
But- I really enjoyed it.
Simon is looking to take over and break up (think Richard Gere in Pretty Woman) the company that Helen works for.
Helen decides to take a stand and fight for her colleagues jobs.  But find herself conflicted when she starts falling for Simon.
Simon is taken back by the feisty geek.  He's hooked by her.
Great little romance read for those looking for a light fix of some cheesy but satisfying romance.
4/5 stars.
