Xavier De Santis is the bad boy in the family he works for the family business in security and protection but lost his mother when he was young and that leaves him scared and feeling that everything that is dear to him he breaks or hurts and now after a fight he is sent to a homeless shelter to help and for some reason he notices a young woman and for some even stranger reason the need to help her but it scares him as well.
Mia has lived on the streets for years she is a loner and sticks to herself going to the shelter for food and sometimes when it is really cold accommodation she feels that she cannot take anythingfrom anyone because she does not deserve it she has been through so much. She is very wary when she meets the new rich guy helping feed the homeless at the shelter and for some reason he seems to trying to get close to her and this scares her a bit.
Sit back and enjoy this journey between two people who are scared and vulnerable I smiled and shed some tears and got a bit frustrated with them both and Xavier and Mia open up to each other and join together in such a beautiful romance Mia is a lot stronger than she seems and the their love for each other is so moving give me a Cinderella story and I am happy this one is a must read and woohoo the start of a series thank you again MS Ashenden for a story that is going to stay with me for a long time.
The storyline was very fairytale like in the way it played out. Tortured young woman, living on the streets for years catches the eye and eventually the heart and soul of the rich billionaire playboy. It was well-written and well-paced. I felt there could have been ore about Mia's past and locating the documents but the story stay away from too many unpleasant facts, seeming to talk about them in he abstract and keep the reader distanced from the ugliness of Mia's childhood and Xavier's loss.
The sexy times were warm to hot, but mostly the story was sweet and has a happy ending. Enjoy!
He doesn't get much of anything from her until the night she comes to the shelter and finds it has been closed. So he whisks her away to his 20 million dollar penthouse and proceeds to break down her walls and gain her trust. Mia is a really strong woman, with a fire that even living on the streets since she was 13 hasn't been able to extinguish. She's fierce and guarded, but curiously with a core of innocence. Xavier is a strangely contradictory mix of demanding and compassionate. His sense of entitlement is in full force at first, but it wears away as do Mia's walls. They both have some serious emotional scars, though, and they hamper their burgeoning relationship, especially on Xavier's part.
This modern day fairy tale is a nice mix of fantasy and modern day romance. It's not fluff, though, it's got too much heat, and heart to be fluff. Xavier and Mia are nicely complex characters that are far more interesting than any one dimensional, cardboard commoner and Prince Charming types. Even the rest of the de Santis brothers are interesting, I'm looking forward to their stories, too. The glimpse of Nero de Santis that's presented after the end of The Billionaire's Virgin is enough to get me all excited for more of this series!
