This author was new to me, but after finishing this book, I'll be looking out for more of her work. This story had hot sex, characters who enjoyed arguing as much as foreplay, and an Alpha hero pitted against a reluctant heroine.

Quinn Cordell views Christopher Colby as the devil. Matter of fact, she sees the entire clan of Colbys as the spawns of satan. Or some such equivalent. They're ruthless. Their attempted hostile takeover of her father's hotel resulted in a forced merger of the two companies. Quinn and Chris are tasked to work together as co-COOs. Chris has a reputation as a player but seems to only have eyes for Quinn, while she stands firm in her hatred of him. Too bad neither her panties nor her heart got the memo.

For most of the book there was plenty of angst (of the push and pull variety). It all came down to whether Quinn could put her trust in Chris and have faith in what they could be together.

It was difficult to get into the story at first. In the beginning, Quinn came off as abrupt, cold and abrasive. Chris seemed annoyingly arrogant. Also, there were many instances where I thought the story would have benefited from Chris's POV. Alas, it wasn't meant to be. I'm glad I pushed through because it turned out to be a great story.

Acquired Asset covers many issues, such as elitism, feminism, prejudice, loss, family, and ultimately love.
