There are some interesting plot twists and well designed confrontations. Melissa beats us over the head a few too many times in the beginning telling us how “unavailable” she is. The reveal when she returns home would have been more dramatic if it hadn’t been so obvious. Still Melissa and Derek are both likeable characters, and they have quite a few hot and heavy scenes. On the downside to that, there is instant lust but nothing to illustrate how they fall into instant love. The first person POV story moves along well. The ending was actually pretty satisfying till the epilogue, which left me slightly frustrated. Too much is crammed into it (some things that I’m not sure even work time wise), cracks in the whole instant love/lust scenario become evident, and more plot doors are opened rather than closed. While there is a HEA and no actual cliffhanger, be warned—the epilogue serves to set up a future novella for the pair, rather than provide closure on the current story.
The sex is hot and intense. The story has that, abuse and the aftermath, friendship, adventure, etc. It was a very different kind of love story. I was told character development is when a character starts out as one thing but over the course of the story they grow and evolve. I thought the characters in this story did - except for the jerk of an ex-husband. But then he started evil and he ended evil and it is just who he was!! I thought the two main characters took a hold on their life and made changes for the better. I enjoyed the story and I would definitely recommend it. I read the one star reviews and I just didn't get what they were talking about. I didn't agree with them at all.
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is just my opinion, nothing more, nothing less.
Melissa needed to get away. "Running" away from the stress of being the rich man's trophy wife, she goes on a spa getaway with her best friend. While vacationing at a Spa Resort, she runs into the of her dreams.
Derek is in the right place at the absolute wrong time. He is at the hotel for business but is intrigued by the beautiful yet broken, Melissa. His breath taken away and Derek can't help what he does. Something he has never done. He steals moments of time with Melissa but later finds that she has stolen his heart.
A hidden agenda puts a wedge into their romance. Melissa always knew her attraction was wrong. She was still married, but she wanted out of the loveless marriage. Actually, she wanted out of it all. The riches and the new romance with Derek. She needed a way back to herself.
I was taken aback by the twist in this story. The path the main characters have to walk wasn't easy. Tia Louise did a fabulous job! The love scenes were intense and endearing.
4 stars and a tip of the Nerd Girl hat!!
