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.

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.
