My Thoughts…

A gently paced friends to lovers/forbidden romance, with an original setting and sizzling chemistry between Ani and Adam.

The setting and background of this story take the reader to glamorous places. Ani, a concert pianist is giving a couple of solos concerts in Europe. The possibility she may have a stalker necessitates her overprotective brother calling in the best to protect her. That’s Adam, the CEO of an A list security firm and his best friend. Adam has always hidden his feelings for Ani, his best friends sister, but now she successful and stunning, and he is on close protection duty.

The chemistry created between the couple is conflicted but intense. They become emotionally involved quickly due to their past connection. Even though Adam knows he is overstepping professional boundaries, his attraction is too real to ignore. Ani has always loved Adam on some level. Now she wants a relationship with him. He resists for professional reasons and personal fears, but she knows what she wants.

The romance is gentle moving to passionate when they are close. This is a closed-door romance, but it doesn’t stop it being full of passion and seemingly insurmountable internal conflict.

A simple plot and glitzy setting, with a hint of danger, and an intense romance, the perfect escapist read.

My Thoughts

Piper and her brother Liam’s childhood forced them apart, but he wants her at his wedding, and when the bride’s brother offers her free accommodation, she has to attend. The meeting between Caleb and Piper is not new, but it does demonstrate the type of people they are and adds some lighthearted moments to the story.

When Liam’s runs off before the wedding, Piper feels responsible and knows she has to follow him to find out why. Caleb values his sister’s happiness, even if he abhors Liam’s behaviour and insists he goes too.

What follows is a romantic chase around the Greek Islands, the setting is vivid and adds to the romance. Piper lacks self-esteem in the wake of her father’s emotional abuse, she is also reeling from a controlling relationship. So Caleb’s take-charge attitude, both annoys and frightens her. She’s attracted but won’t allow herself to make another mistake. Their romance is riddled with conflict, mostly internal, but the slow burn attraction turns them into risk-takers and after much angst, they find what they are both seeking, including Liam.

A lovely romance with picturesque island hopping.
