Book #3 in the Bennett Family series
Also known as Taken By The Bad Boy in UK and Aus markets
Kelly Hunter has written an incredible love story in The Maverick's Green Island Mistress. Her character development was amazing as she put together the beautiful and sexy Serena with the knock out and gorgeous Pete. It's a wonderful story about an secluded and small Greek island with a cast of characters the reader will long remember.
Serena is of Greek and Australian decent and she and her cousin Nico live in the family home. Serena rents vespas and Nico fishes. The entire island knows every ones business from Nico and his crush on Chloe who runs a local hotel and her nephew Sam and now the new arrival and helicopter pilot replacement Pete Bennett.
Pete is one sexy and gorgeous pilot and the immediate attraction between he and Serena leaps off of the pages. The entire town tries to put up road blocks in their relationship so they are always trying to sneak away to have alone time together. It was such a fun and sassy read with passion, danger thrown into the mix On the back cover there's a quote, "Red-hot and reckless!" and this certainly describes Hunter's romantic love story.
Serena is a very determined young woman. For most of her life she has lived for her family. Just as soon as she can, she wants to leave the island and pursue her career in photo journalism so a summer romance for her would be fun as long as no one gets hurt. As for Pete, he's in agreement as he's a love 'em and leave 'em sort of guy. So when he falls, well let's just say their journey in finding happiness is a rocky one, a beautiful tale you definitely won't want to miss.
Absolutely one of the best of this type of book I have read. If I had found this in a combo selection with another book, it would be a worthwhile purchase. The characters are well developed and interesting. And the storyline has meaning. Sometimes these type can be so short you feel the events were rushed. But I though this was paced perfectly for the story it contained. Great main and secondary characters that you want to spend time with and get to know more about. I will definitely read something by this author again. My biggest complaint is the title. I felt it was totally not fitting the story. And based on it alone I probably would never have picked it up and missed out on a great story.
