Before She Can Put the Past Away...There's Hell to Pay.
Hannah Taylor--the bright, bubbly publicity director of Silicon Valley's celebrated startup Paragon Laboratories--was kidnapped and beaten. Her bodyguard-boyfriend, Wesley Eden, was shot right in front of her. The responsible party? None other than Chinese mogul Li Na Zhao, who'll stop at nothing to steal Paragon's blockbuster biotechnology from Hannah's CEO sister Lauren.
Now, Wesley and Hannah are back home and on the mend. Their relationship is tested as Wesley struggles to recover, and Hannah, fueled by the injustice of Li Na's actions, is out for retribution while refusing to acknowledge the PTSD she's grappling with from her kidnapping. Convinced that Hannah is hiding the truth about her captivity, Wes is determined to find out what really happened while Li Na had Hannah.
Out to protect her loved ones, Hannah is hell-bent on finally taking Li Na down, especially after she discovers that Paragon isn't the only Silicon Valley company in Li Na's crosshairs. Naturally, the ethically challenged Chinese CEO likes her position on top and refuses to give up without a fight...
But Li Na hasn't grappled with Hannah Taylor when she's bent on revenge.

3 thieving, scary stars for HANNAH.
After surviving a hostage situation and the shooting of her boyfriend Wes by Chinese corporate terrorist Ni La, Hannah Taylor is done. And when she attacks Hannah's friend Lauren, killing her husband? No more waiting, it's time to take the bitch out. Even though Hannah's still a mess from her kidnapping, and Wes is still working to be able to walk, no less protect his woman, the two of them along with their families and friends are determined to end this assault. Hannah has a plan, and it'll take every bit of mettle she and her friends have to see this through.
HANNAH is the first book I've read in the Silicon Valley Billionaires series, but not the first book in that series. I know Ms. James was likely trying to make her characters fierce as hell, but they kinda came off whiny and impotent, just throwing as much money as possible at a problem to try and solve it. Maybe it's because I'm coming in late to the series game, but Wes and Hannah's inability to get back on the proverbial horse, suck it up and fuck it up, just bugged the hell out of me. Wes's power play of getting out of his wheelchair before he was ready and Hannah's enforcing a no meat policy drove me nuts as well. Like I said, maybe I'd find more common ground & empathy if I hadn't come in at book 3, but as it stands, it was more annoying than awesome.
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; some condom use; no BDSM/kink; sexual assault; violence/murder.
