Ms Smart At Her Best, 5 stars 🌟 :

Rating By Clare,18/08/2017

Book two of Ms Smart's Trilogy centred around the Pellegrino family focuses on Natasha, Pieta Pellegrino’s widow and Matteo Manaserro, Pieta's cousin and close friend. We are introduced to Natasha and Matteo at Pieta's Funeral during which Pieta’s sister Francesca, whose story we discover in the first book, asks Matteo to keep an eye on Natasha whilst the cousins are working together to fulfil Pieta's legacy and build a hospital in his name on the hurricane hit Caribbean island of Caballero. However, not all is as it seems, Natasha has been keeping secrets firstly protecting her late husband's reputation and secondly of the past history she and Matteo share. So when Matteo visits on the night of the funeral passions flare and now with a baby on the way can they come together for the sake of the baby and can Matteo forgive Natasha for choosing Pieta over him seven years previously and lying to him so they can finally have their belated HEA! Although this is book two of a trilogy you can still read and enjoy it as a standalone however, in my opinion to get the best enjoyment out of it and the trilogy then you would enjoy reading Protecting His Defiant Innocent, Francesca and Felipe story first. With the conclusion coming soon from Ms Smart, I for one can not wait to see what Daniele’s story will be in Buying His Bride Of Convenience. Fyi I received my copy from NetGalley and Mills and Boon via Mills and Boon Insiders, but this does not influence my opinions as all opinions are my own.

An absorbing read

Rating By Karim,18/04/2019

An absorbing & enjoyable read!! The author kept me guessing in this MODERN what the twists and turns she had in store for her reader, which is always pleasing in a book even though that with Mills & Boon the anticipated satisfied ending was coming. I preferred Francesca, the heroine in the first installment a little more than Natasha, however the swiftly moving pace of the story made it a hugely enjoyable read and I shall look forward to reading the final title in the trilogy in due course, along with many other Michelle Smart titles for MODERN/PRESENTS in future. This series has demonstrated the author's narrative flair and writing talent. I recommend this book!
