Captivated by the Enigmatic Tycoon by Bella Bucannon

Secrets can be destructive if you let them.

Cassie Clarkson and Jack Randell each have a secret. They are keeping these secrets for different reasons. Cassie because she is somewhat ashamed of her background and Jack because he doesn’t want to find himself in the same situation as last time.

Cassie is a declutterer. She takes on people’s houses to declutter and finds a way to have them relinquish the items. Many of the items are special to them but Cassie is the one person who can make them part with their cherished items. Her latest contract is for a recent widow who has had an accident and wants to try and downsize. Cassie finds that Mel has a very nice nephew. Cassie is determined to keep her background in the background as it doesn’t affect her work.

Jack Randell is a tradie. He is also an entrepreneur who is about to make a big deal. His personal experience has meant that he wants to keep his wealth as much under the radar as he can. Tara, his previous partner, would not date anyone of a lower status and he still has gotten over their last fight when she left and was found dead. He believes that if he says he does maintenance, even though it is really renovation, he thinks he is safe.

Jack understands from the first that he is attracted to Cassie and that she has somehow slipped under his radar. He spends the time pursuing her and finally catches her. Cassie then thinks that she can never be good enough for his family, so breaks it off with him. Jack is in the middle of a business deal and longs to hold Casse and let her know that they will be together.

This is an enjoyable story. I like the shy and gentle Cassie. She does have an inner spine of steel and it shows from time to time when she needs to deal with her feelings. She also has a weakness for Jack and under normal circumstances with her feelings swaying greatly from ‘I will’ to ‘we can’t be together’ makes her very much like us.

The characters, both the main and secondary, are very real, do real things and could be anyone we look at in the street and I think that is probably the reason I really liked the story.
