A Corporate Courtship was a really great story - but there were many times I felt like the romance was on the back burner. It felt more like a finding yourself story for both Gloria and Arthur. When they first meet, in the courtroom, there are some sparks, but I didn't really feel the pull between them. They weren't ready for that yet.
The town and the environmental impact statement that was standing in the way of progress was also standing between them - at first. It doesn't take too long for them to figure out they are mostly on the same side of the argument, just for different reasons. The vast majority of the story revolves around this battle over the impact statements.
While I really appreciate the detail (and learned a lot) that the author put into how the plant, upgrades, and community all worked and the pros and cons of the revitalization plan, it really took away from the emotional connection I wanted to feel with the characters. Some moments were amazing, but there were overshadowed by the corporate dealing aspects of the story.
