Another great book by this Author. Why I haven’t seen her on the top of every bestseller list yet I don’t know. She is one of the best authors I have ever read. She creates characters you want to meet and puts them in situations you enjoy reading about. In this story there is a mystery around Tess’s background. I would say that it keeps you engaged, but I would be lying. There is so much more than just that which makes you want to keep reading. You feel like you know the people and are part of the story. This one is different from others by this author. Previous books make you want to believe that they could really happen, while deep down you know they can’t. This one you believe can happen, that the people can really exist and that the events could be based on truth.
When Ian Blackwell, a self-made billionaire, tasks his attorney and good friend Robert with finding him a suitable wife to get the press off his back and improve his image for business purposes, he had no idea what treasure he’d discover in the face of Tess. What I enjoyed the most about this story was the fact that it’s not your typical romance where the two characters fall for each other right away. Instead, it’s a story of building trust, of a healing heart, of friendship and mutual support more than anything, and particularly when Tess discovers a plot of an invisible enemy who seems to be set on taking the Blackwell corporation down. Despite Tess’s story being so heartbreaking, Ian’s treatment of her won my utmost respect right away and I couldn’t help but applaud him for handling so many difficult situations with such grace. A mixture of thriller and romance, this novel definitely deserves five stars and more. Highly recommended!
Originally I used KU to read this but I ended up loving this book so much that I bought a copy for myself. I've already re-read it once and expect to do that several more times. I know how it ends, of course, but the journey is really good in both the suspense side and the romance. Being a former computer nerd in my professional life, the suspense plot line was right up my alley. I loved it! The h was an amazing woman and I really, really love her. The H ends up being an amazing person too and I adored him.
