Orla Kennedy is in control and always ensures everything goes her way, and most importantly she never takes risks. It's just not her style.
But on the eve of a business deal she's tired, stressed out and in desperate need of blowing off some steam, this leads her to sharing a drink with an attractive stranger and also a night of unbridled passion. It's the best night of her life and she'll never forget it.
But work looms on the horizon and she places the super hot memories in the back of her mind. Easy as relive, day dream a little and then get all hot and dirty minded and then back to work, yeah right ! This is a Abby Green book so we know that will never happen.
And it doesn't, soon she discovers her one night stand is her rival, the fearless Antonio Chatsfield. He has pretty much everything he wants and is known as a war hero, so fame, fortune the whole set up is there, but his life feels as empty as his recently vacated bed.
Yet he still drags himself over to The Chatsfield, London to aid his sister. But when he comes face to face with the woman who came apart in his arms just hours before he starts forming a new merger of a entirely different kind.
This was a brilliant book in true Abby Green fashion, from the very start till the very end! The author weaved a tale of secrets, passion and rivalry with exquisite detail and with her unique slightly dark almost mysterious bordering on sweet writing style she created characters I will never forget.
The character of Orla was wonderful, I loved her spirit and fun I handle it all attitude, it did show her as a little too much self involved, but only slightly for as we all know we always think at some stage in life we can handle everything and anything that comes our way, without so much as a drop of help from anyone, so the character did still have that realistic feel I adore so much in romance reads.
The character of Antonio, was super hotness combined with just a smidgen of darkness that every now and then breaks through the barrier of being fair, kind and sweet but not too sweet that he doesn't go all out in getting who and what he wants.
Through both characters the author showed that in life there is the past and there is the present. What we think of the past is what will hold us back, what we do with the present is what will ultimately set us free from the past. Of course that's is a message us readers have seen in many other books, yet this author brought it home in a different manner , slightly familiar but with a new kind of flare, that I thoroughly enjoyed.
I highly recommend this read for all who love a good can do anything my way war hero meets head strong heroine and is brought to his knees story.
