I received a copy of this book from Mills and Boon in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

This emotional and passionate romance explores family issues sensitively, through the two main characters Valentino and Kiara. Emotionally barren Valentino is hard to empathise. Defined by her art Kiara is a paradox of strength and emotional vulnerability.

The romantic conflicts are predominately internal.

Realistic and raw this passionate romance takes you on an emotional rollercoaster before its satisfactory conclusion.

I received a copy of this book from Mills and Boon in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

An engaging romantic story, Glamorous, like you, expect from a Mills and Boon Modern, but with a strong emotional theme. The heroine copes with a less than idyllic parents, and the legacy of a terrible accident. Orla’s love for her son and her stepsister is believable and heartwarming. They drive her actions, as she copes with amnesia after a car accident, three years previously. The second unexpected meeting, between Tonino and Orla, is cleverly written, with undercurrents of guilt, passion and surprise. The gradual reveal of Orla’s memory culminates in a last poignant revelation that motivates her to seek her happy ever after.

Tonino is revengeful, to begin with, but avoids the stereotypical billionaire forcing the heroine, to his way of thinking. His character development and insight is refreshing and relatable and makes this story special. The inclusiveness of the story is also notable and welcome.

Passion meets parenting in a contemporary realistic way.

Two lost souls and unexpected night of passion on a beautiful Greek Island. A lovely holiday memory, perhaps that’s what it would have been for Hannah, although her emotions are more engaged than she wanted. The billionaire child she’s carrying changes everything. She has to tell him, but can she trust this precious gift with him, when her trust feels broken beyond repair?

Leonidas is a broken man, rich beyond belief and thankfully now on the right side of the law, but losing his baby son and wife, because of his father’s criminality is a burden that draws him to beautiful Greek Island on the saddest of pilgrimages. Hannah is a guilty pleasure, and guilt is something he knows well.

The couples passion is what draws them to each other, but maybe there is something more spiritual too. Damaged souls, drawn to the pain of the other? A marriage of convenience will allow Leonidas to protect his unborn child, but can Hannah survive a gilded cage, and living with a man who says he doesn’t deserve love?

This is a poignant, romantic story against an amazingly glamorous setting, but money isn’t everything, but trust is hard to give once it’s broken, will Hannah and Leonidas find their happy ever after, for much of the story in the face of crippling internal conflict, it seems not, but after surviving their emotional roller coaster, there is hope.

4* #Review An Heir for the World’s Richest Man – Maya Blake @MillsandBoon @mayablake #Romance #Modern #BillionaireRomance #MillsandBoonInsiders

But the undeniable tension between them is higher than ever since they finally surrendered to a one-off, emotionally-charged night together. And it’s about to sky-rocket again because Joao’s just found out that Saffron is pregnant!

My Thoughts…

Joao, the richest man in the world, is not easy to like on first acquaintance. His domineering attitude towards his intelligent, irreplaceable Executive Assistant Saffron, doesn’t endear, but once you see things from his point of view, you realise he cannot let her go, for reasons much deeper than her faultless ability to run his professional life.

Saffron, is a woman with goals, professionally she has excelled, but she still needs to fulfil her target, of creating a family. She is easy to like, she has integrity and insight, she knows life with Joao has to end if she is to achieve her ideal life.

This is an emotionally charged story, full of contrasts, excess and glamour. The characters are complex, and believable, even though they inhabit a world few understand. The romance is slow to ignite, but passionate when it does. The conflicts are mostly internal, but are realistic, and threaten the high powered couples happily ever after.

The ending is romantic, and impossibly glamorous as fits the genre.

A Week to be Wild – J.C. Harroway- 4 * Review

Libby Noble is done with men who live on the edge, but sexy British billionaire Alex coaxes her out of her comfort zone—professionally and very personally! She’ll agree to play his game…but only by her rules!

My Thoughts… 

A refreshing new take on the ‘battle of the sexes’.

English billionaire Alex, who likes risks and getting what he wants, engineers a face to face meeting with a successful New Yorker Libby. There is an instant sizzle, but can they work together? Or will the barely held in check passion make keeping it professional impossible?

The plot is simple. Physical attraction and gratification dominate the story but accompanied by growing emotional attachment and a lowering of barriers between Alex and Libby. Physical closeness makes sharing their past tragedy and guilt possible and helps them both believe that love may be worth the potential for pain if it all ends badly again.

The characters are likeable if a little unrealistic. The conflict is primarily internal, but Libby’s emotional battle keeps the reader wondering whether she is capable of letting love into her life again.

Fast-paced, the characters aren’t memorable, but I don’t think this is the role of this type of book. The perfect story for escapism, passion and a happy ever after.
