Hurt sometimes just refuses to go away. You can through yourself into your work, you can get drunk and laugh and try to forget, you can do just about anything but the hurt will always be there. Sneaking up on you in the dead of night or hitting you with the first rays of sunlight.
In this read, the fifth book in the new Mills and Boon series, we meet Holly Purman and Franco Chatsfield.
Holly has devoted her life to her family's vineyard and there is no way and no how she is going to risk losing it all, especially to a Chatsfield!
Franco Chatsfield has never played by the rules of his family and he 's not planning on starting anytime soon either. But The Chatsfield's new CEO makes it clear that Franco needs to secure a partnership and he can't say no. So he figures he 'll seal the deal and get the out! Should be easy enough. There's just one problem, one very tempting woman stands in his way.
Franco and Holly soon finds themselves working together to both get what they want, but as time passes and all starts to fall into place so does their passion for each other and soon Franco find the pieces to his heart have somehow been slotted back into place, he has no idea how and soon he only has one question , does he go against hope and shatter his heart again or does he go after the woman who has mended it?
I really liked this read, the characters were interesting and the plot had a very nice fun flow to it. The character of Franco does come off as a little too dark , but once the author reveals his reasons from the past I saw him in a complete different light and I immediately sympathized with him. I loved, loved the moment when the truth about his feelings for Holly hit him, it was so intense and had me yelling out" That's it, you're finally there! "
I loved the character of Holly, so much fun to read! She was all fire and ice and this of course made me adore her! I mean who doesn't love a give it as good as she gets it heroine! I was non to happy about her judgmental attitude toward Franco but as she started to get to know him the author did a fabulous job at showing that we should never judge someone on first impressions. You just simply cannot know what lies behind their bad attitude or sadness in their eyes. Always take the time to get to know someone before you go all out to hit them with words and actions that hurt.
I am taking away a message of life has it's way of dishing out pain that shatters our hearts to the point where we believe it cannot be repaired, but life also has away of showing us that there is always hope for a better tomorrow. The trick is to be able to recognize it when it comes along , and if you don't then at least be man enough to recognize it when it hits you over the head, and act right away! Never delay in grabbing onto happiness for tomorrow it might be too late.
I recommend this read for all fans that love a very sexy and passionate love found during the most unexpected series of events romance reads. Trish Morey has created a stunning fun and fresh plot with believable and remarkable characters.
