I found the opening of this story a bit hard going for a couple of pages, however, it quickly turned into a very entertaining read. One of those that you start and don't really want to have to put aside until you know how it works out, which can be a bit of a pain, as it's quite a lengthy read.
The heroine, Beatrice (Bea), and the hero, Daniel, are very likeable. There is an element of insta-lust that become insta-love, which I usually find very irritating, but on this occasion it's handled with great credibility. What happens with these two is the same thing you hear about around the family dinner table - the couple everyone knows who met on holiday, fell in love and it somehow all worked out when it really shouldn't have, given they knew each other so briefly. Not to say there wasn't conflict. There is a major conflict in the story that has to be resolved for the HEA.
I docked a half star because sometimes Daniel seemed just a little too good to be true (I know, jealous, much!). Also, the dialogue was a bit too down pat on occasions. Nevertheless, it was a great story and I really look forward to the sequel, which is based upon two of the very well-developed secondary characters. (The cliffhanger at the end of this story relates to those secondary characters, not to Bea and Daniel - this book can be read as a very satisfying stand-alone).
Note, for those who care, the book contains few editorial errors (just the odd misspelling throughout) and the writer demonstrates technical proficiency.
Great story, really enjoyed it and will definitely be continuing on with the further books in this series.
