I love a good romance read, especially when they engage you from the start of the book. I was excited when we were given the opportunity to review this beauty of an ARC here at Quintillion reads. What I can tell you is… exciting times are coming!!
This beautiful cover is enough to make you want to pick up this book and get stuck in right away. It’s both elegant and cute but gave me high hopes for this book.
Melissa changed her life six years ago, she moved to a new location where she could start again. That is, until she runs into Andrew Malcolm; a handsome stranger from her past. The life she had built for herself threatened by someone she met in the past, she instantly decides to avoid him. Andrew has other ideas, he is drawn to Melissa. Unable to ignore the feelings he gets around her he pursues her. He even seeks help of a friend to get her number and address. What happens when they finally sit down and talk?
Andrew is in the situation where his mother and father have the “Ideal” life planned for him. They want him to take over the family law firm, marry the woman they have chose for him. They do not react well when he introduces them to Melissa; only changing opinion slightly when they realise she is the daughter of a successful millionaire.
Whereas, Melissa is a character who has a dark past that she is ashamed of. As a result, there are pictures and videos of her all over the internet for the world to access. Initially she tries to avoid Andrew due to links from her past but eventually she lets her guard down with him.
Will Melissa be able to fully explain her past to Andrew?
How will they deal with the obstacles put in their way?
I have absolutely loved this book, I have read it in a matter of hours. This has a well-written and thought out plot. I honestly couldn’t put it down. I cannot wait to read the second book in this series. It really is that good!
I love the plot of this book, there are twists and turns guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat. I honestly couldn’t predict what was going to happen next. It’s so exciting and the events that take place are completely unique from any other book I’ve ever read. I cannot wait to see where Cruz is going to take us on the journey between Andrew and Melissa.
The characters of Andrew and Melissa were extremely loveable. I absolutely wanted them to progress from the very start. The attraction between them evident. I’m not normally a lover of raunchy scenes but I found that they were not too much within this book. Although present, they strengthen the chemistry and bond between the main characters. On the other hand, I had a strong dislike of the Malcolm’s; they are judgemental and status/money hungry who seem to lack any awareness of their children’s happiness. Cruz has done a superb job of bringing each personality to life and making the individuals seem real within the book.
The dialogue between the characters in this story really show the connections or in some instances hostility. It is as though you are there with them watching the events unfold. I loved the setting of this book, it was easy to picture.
Overall, this is a truly spectacular read which I have loved! If only I could give this book a higher rating than five stars- it definitely deserves it.
This should be on everyone’s TBR list!! If it’s not- you’re missing out on a magical romantic read!
