Falling for his rivals' little sister could cost him everything …

For Liam Trulane, failure is not an option. He is determined to win a place in Katie Summers' life before she leaves Independence Falls for good. But first, he needs to make amends for the last time they got down and dirty.

Only problem?

His professional success hinges on striking a deal to buy Katie's family business. And after Liam's relationship with their Katie went south years ago, the Summers brothers are more enemy than friend. If both parties agree to set the past aside, they can reach an understanding. But when Katie welcomes him back into her bed, Liam risks everything to make her his.

After Liam betrayed her trust, Katie Summers will do anything to keep him from walking away with the family business. She decides to seduce him, knowing that when her brothers find out, they will back off from the deal. And she'll finally have her revenge. But when her plan spirals out of control, Katie learns that payback may come at too high a price …

My Thoughts:
I got a chance to read Caught In The Act by Sara Jane Stone, which happens to be book two in Independence Falls books. I did like this book this better than Full Exposure, and I did like  Full Exposure. All right, in this story we focus on Liam Trulane (Georgia' older brother) and Katie Summers.

So, Liam has been task with the job to make an offer to the Summers to buy their company for Moore  Timber. However, there might be a problem cause when Liam was young and stupid he hurt Katie pretty bad, which cause the tension between him and the Summers brothers. Gotta love stupidity. Anyway, he's trying to make it up the hurt he caused Katie. Yet, Katie is set on revenge. After all she was at the impressional age of 18 when Liam caused her pain.

Anyway, I do love a good revenge plot, especially when the makes the story flow nicely. You have Liam who seriously wants to make amends for his misdeeds of youth, and Katie who would love to hurt Liam the way he did. We all know how those plans go flying out the window. Then you have three overbearing brothers trying to protect Katie for Liam, but they don't know her master plan. While this is all going on, you have negotiating going on about a buy outs. However, the story focus more on Liam and Katie working out the past.

I enjoyed the fact that Liam is trying his hardest to fix the past and Katie trying to seduce him. At the same time she's having a hard time doing when he's being a nice guy trying to repair the past. I think Katie summed it up best with this thought:
Desire had a way of wrecking even the best-laid plans for revenge. And forgiveness followed close behind.
I liked how the story can be read as a standalone, but at the same time moving forward in the series. if that makes any sense to you all. I like how Sara Jane Stone introduces a new character into the series, which should make the next book interesting to read. So, if you are looking for a reunited lovers with a revenge plot, you might give Caught In The Act a try.
