Role Reversal

Rating By R,27/10/2014

There have been a number of duets recently where the second book doesn't quite live up to the promise of the first. This is interesting in that there is a role reversal - up to now Luiz has been the ultimate bed-hopping playboy and Daisy the "good" girl but here Daisy is determined to lose her virginity while Luiz turns all moralistic and tries to resist. Luiz was sexy and hard to resist but Daisy was a bit of a pain - in the circumstances she is hypocritical in questioning Luiz's sexual habits, her judgmental attitude was quite annoying and her treatment of Luiz at the end left a lot to be desired. I liked the way she stood up to her father but didn't really care for her friends whom she had come to Las Vegas with. Although slightly slow at times it was an enjoyable read although not as good as the eldest Valquez brother's story. Eight out of ten

A truly Classic Modern romance! Triple A*

Rating By Arpita,26/12/2014

This ‘duet’ of The Playboys of Argentina is a must read for all Melanie Milburne’s fans. True to the genius of her spinning a romance so fluently, with the correct amount of lust, attraction, sensuality and superb repartee between Daisy and Luiz is just the story that will make you read it at one go. A real page turner for the romantic at heart and it will make the reader think why couldn’t there have been an Epilogue? Next time I hope there is one! Brilliant indeed!

Have you ever read a book from start to finish, closed it off and just sat there as ever so slowly you try and reenter the world of the living? Taking deep breaths doesn't help, staring at the cover only let's you fall deeper back into the book, and staring at the space around you only makes you want to crawl back inside the world the author created , thus you are so completely trapped it will take you months to reenter the world of real people again. This my dear reading friends is what happened to me when I completed the new read from Melanie Milburne. I felt a variety of emotions bouncing around, it ranged from heart aching sadness for the hurt the characters had to go through, to an all time high of joy as it was brought together in true spectacular Melanie Milburne fashion. The read tells of innocent schoolteacher, Daisy Wyndham, standing outside a Las Vegas nightclub she has never felt more out of her depth, and that was before I do more than play the game on the field Argentinian polo player, Luiz Valquez comes to her rescue in front of the press. This rescue however leads to reports of their engagement and soon they strike a deal. It's a dangerous charade but it's one they're both prepared to play. And when it ends they will both have what they want, Luiz 's playboy image will be gone and Daisy will cast aside her cloistered upbringing. But with Luiz doing his very best to be good and Daisy trying her damnedest to be bad, and I do mean very bad it's only a matter of time before one of them gives in. But which one will walk away from the deal first, when it comes to saying I love you? Now as mentioned this read had me completely just sitting there and staring into space as I tried to come back down to earth and process the various emotions, it has happened to me before but it has never been this intense! I felt like crying because the book had ended and I felt as if I had just lost apart of my soul, and quite frankly I doubt it will ever be found again. The character of Luiz was intense, and I mean seriously intense. He goes from playboy to complete sweetheart in mere seconds at various times in the read, yes it does sound a little like those types of men that send mixed signals and you can never really figure them out, but it was not the case. It was more of a " this is me, sinfully sexy Luiz, playboy extraordinaire, but only to the outside world, when I am with Daisy I am the real me". It did drive me a little nuts, because I wanted the whole world to see the real him and not just Daisy, but him slotting into place the mask did get me thinking that it's what most likely all of us do at some stage in our lives. We want to be seen as something merely to protect ourselves but deep down there is always someone that is able to get us to bring out the real us. But it never really protects us against anything, it only shows us in a light of uncertainly and most of the time makes us unapproachable to the rest of the world, and let's face it that doesn't sound very much fun. So why? Letting the true you shine out to the world will in the long run ensure that no one is uncertain of you or your actions, step up and step out it's what the world wants. The character of Daisy was all kinds of sweet, she's a teacher after all. What I enjoyed most about her was her shed the innocence mission. Naturally her innocence showed her as this crisp clean wholesome lady, but her eagerness to get out there and shed the innocence was what made her character fun to read. I am not saying all innocent woman need to go out there and find a hot guy to get down and dirty with, simply to say they'v e made the transition from good to bad, but just letting go a little of the reins will teach you that there is more to life then always obeying the rules, from parents to the press, no matter rules are meant to be our own. Keeping to the rules of others will only make you dull, and what will you end up with? Sadness and not feeling for-fulled at all. I am taking away a beautiful message of life is meant to be lived as much as possible. Hiding behind rules and masks is not the way to get out there and find your happiness, romantically or otherwise. It's shedding the masks and telling the rules " See you on the other side!" I highly recommend this read was all fans who love to escape into a world of romance and passion. Melanie Milburne is one of the top selling authors of our time and has always managed to climb inside the hearts of her readers, but with this read she has proven she can capture your soul! A beautiful, stunning, remarkable, captivating, unforgettable read. 5/5 star review "From temporary down and dirty to permanent bliss"

Highly satisfying!!!!

Rating By Karim,11/04/2016

Melanie Milburne is one of three Modern authors whose books I have read most and I've never been disappointed by any of them. This was a highly satisfying read which I took my time enjoying and although I think the first book in this duet was only slightly better, Luiz and Daisy's story is well worth reading.... !! Another example of an author whose definitely at the top of her game and her writing has a deftness of touch which makes her a true star of genre!!
