Book Description

Love By The Numbers

Everything in life has to add up for CPA Karin Michaels. Her checkbook--balanced. Her day planner--precise. Her doctor boyfriend--predictable. So why, on a scale of one to ten, is her happiness rating a zero? And the last thing Karin needs now is to tangle with her firm's most difficult client, Jacques Bernard Dubois.

A sexy hunk of chocolate with a spicy attitude, rapper Dubois is in big trouble with the tax man and afraid he'll lose his company, Def Island Sounds. He needs a special lady to balance his books. But neither he nor Karin count on a passion so explosive it steals their reason. Suddenly they're at his home on the romantic island of St. Lucia--bedded, wedded, and in the worst predicament of their lives . . .

"Esdaile has truly mastered her ability to create a beautiful, touching love story." --R.A.W. Sistaz Reviewers

She has penned over sixteen novels and five novellas within genres as diverse as romance, women's fiction, crime, suspense, and dark fantasy/horror, and regularly contributes to magazines and newspaper columns.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice. 20 Mar. 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Everything in life has to add up for CPA Karin Michaels. Her chequebook - balanced. Her day planner - precise. Her doctor boyfriend - predictable. So why, on a scale of one to ten, is her happiness rating a zero? And the last thing Karin needs now is to tangle with her firm's most difficult client Jacques Bernard Dubois.

I found her relationship with her doctor boyfriend unrealistic but, otherwise, the other characters were good.

A nice, pleasant, funny read.

3.25 stars.

What can I say, Leslie Esdaile does it again. A wonderfully fun, witty, pacey and romance packed story. As always there is plenty of plot but also lots of love, something for lovers of romantica everywhere. I love it. Keep it up Ms Esdaile - we await your next masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy, Exciting, and a Great Read!! 26 Oct. 2006
By T. Brown-Gary - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. The main characters were made for each other. From the very beginning I was rooting for them. Karin was just a CPA who had a boring life, boring job and boring boyfriend. Until she learns the bosses want her to woo the famous JB Dubois into signing with their company. Karin starts to realize how much of an asset she is to her superiors. JB sees the realness in Karin and realizes he has to have her review his finances which are in such disarray because he literally gives money away to his friends and family because of the poverty he sees in his home Island. From the moment the two meet, sparks fly high! I have read Ms. Esdaile's novels before, but this is my favorite so far. Once the two realize they are made for each other, the senuality drips off the pages and You cannot help but to feel the heat! I need to book a trip to St. Lucia and find my "JB"!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I would have given it 9 stars! 29 April 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Here I go again. I just wrote a review for 'Sister Got Game' by this amazing, Philly author. I didn't think 'Chick-Lit' writing could get any better and Leslie has done it again and raised the bar. I love everything about her books and 'Take Me There' did not disappoint. I wanted to fly to Saint Lucia tomorrow! Reading this book made me want to find my own true love and take the chance on love again. I am a fan for life!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Take Me There, took me there... 10 Mar. 2009

How vividly does a painted gray sky-scrape, long sulking faces, and the co-worker with the nae to every yae wisps a reader like me through an opening chapter, forgetting that I was even reading romance. I didn't realize what I was reading until I got to the end and actually turned the book over to read the back excerpt. All I knew, I was engaged from the opening... painting a mood I know all too well, to Karin & Lloyd... and good Lord if that exchange at the concert between her & Lloyd didn't tickle me... to the dialogue between her and her mother... where Karin of course set her straight too... to the very end caught up around Karin and the luv.

I've never come across a romance read as short, wrapping up as smooth, and coming across so believable! It had to be that opening, Esdaile speaking a language I know all too well (...raggedy as a bowl of yock - LOL)!

What else can I say but what a tease... wheeling readers in and spitting them out before they know it! The perfect beach read.

Before facing the IRS, Jacques (JB) Dubois, CEO of Def Island needs financial help quick. The accounting firm that is trying to get his account assigns CPA Karin Michaels to work with him until the boss gets over his sickness or another top staffer can take over. Although, Karin is fascinated with the singer, she is also looking out for his business.

Karin is invited to Jacque's concert while in Philadelphia and takes her "stuck up" doctor boyfriend, Lloyd. This is a fun read as Karin enjoys herself at the concert.

Karin has to travel to Jacques home in St. Lucia to look over his books and this is where she better understands his lifestyle while their attraction for one another truly surfaces especially with the sly help of Jacques housekeeper, Mrs. Orville.

This was an enjoyable story and one that you have to keep reading until finished.
4.0 out of 5 stars Could have been 5 stars 8 Nov. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was a very good read, and would have given it 5 stars but I was quite distracted by the dialect/slang which was supposedly St.Lucian.. One of our languages, spoken by most is Patois, which has a very strong French influence. I am a St.Lucian by birth, and have lived here all my life. Alot of the dialect does not represent St.Lucian way of speaking, but rather represents other nationalities.This is why I found some of the conversations distracting and it took away from the full enjoyment of this book. Even it this is a work of fiction, knowing that this represents your country can make it disconcerting, especially if it is incorrect. I liked Ms Esdaile's discriptive writing of St.Lucia, and it was on point, even the actual/non fictional names of places, like Buzz Restaurant. I would definitely read another of Ms Esdaile's book
