This second book from the Sherbrookes of Newport Series is a very enjoyable read. Both Jake and Charlie are determined people who think they know what they want out of life. There were a few glimpses at Callie and Dylan in this story, which always pleases me to see the previous characters and how they are doing. We even get a little peek into his sister Sara, the final Sherbrooke sibling who will be featured in the next book.
I think Ms. Tetreault just keeps getting better and better. I'm looking forward to the next installment in this series!
The setting is New England in a picturesque and charming bed and breakfast run by the heroine's family in North Salem. The story starts out with a hurricane as Navy Dr. Charlie (Charlotte) O'Brien escorts her mother down to the basement of their home for safety. In the aftermath of the hurricane, Charlie sets out to rescue victims of the storm and aid her neighborhood in putting their lives back together. During the clean up, Charlie encounters Jake Sherbrooke, the Billionaire Playboy. Jake has a wild reputation with women and is a celebrity due to his family, his money and his attractiveness (think John F. Kennedy, Jr. here). Jake Sherbrooke has come to assess the damage from the storm and offer financial aid through his foundation to the victims for rebuilding their homes.
Jake has had a lot to live up to as a member of the Sherbrooke family. Added to that is the fact that his father is the President of the U.S. and you can see why Jake's life is very complicated. Jake arrives on the scene and encounters a feisty redhead in the form of Navy Dr. Charlie O'Brien. He's intrigued by her and also a little put off by her abrupt demeanor. He rents a room at her mother's B & B (where Charlie also lives at present) and he helps the town put their world to rights again. He digs in with both hands, physically helping the residents with rescue and cleanup, surprising Charlie, who has written him off as a wealthy playboy and a man of leisure. Charlie finds it hard to trust Jake's intentions when they start to fall in love. Jake has had women swooning at his feet due to his celebrity status for years. As the couple gets closer his past reputation catches up with Jake and threatens their chances at a happily ever after.
I really enjoyed this sequel to The Teacher's Billionaire. Both main characters were well developed with deep internal conflicts that were believable and compelling. Charlie is a very likeable heroine who readers will easily identify with, she's a professional woman who has struggled to make it in a man's world. She's also woman who has experienced a broken heart and thus has learned to protect herself and not look for `true love'. Jake is a noble, endearing hero. He's had a bad reputation via the media, but not everything the media has painted about him is true. He has had a constant struggle to make people believe that and give him a chance. Also, his famous family has pressured him constantly to follow his father's footsteps in the political arena, and he has done his best to resist and follow his own dreams, but not without problems.
This book was wonderful to read. I savored every moment. Even the side characters were interesting. The added appeal to this well written sequel is the wedding of Dylan and Callie (the couple from book one) at the Sherbrooke Mansion. We get to revisit the Sherbrooke family once again. This book has a wide appeal, as it brings the fantasy of a charming and handsome billionaire meeting you in your home town and falling in love with you. It's a storybook romance that is well written, entertaining, and very compelling to read. I highly recommend it.
