Dexter Drake runs the family's luxury resort and spa in Southern California. Dex is known for his playboy ways but there is a lot more to him.
Faye Buckner has just return to the states to do something that she has always wanted to do since becoming a doctor. Her mentor provided her with the space to open up a clinic in rural part of San Diego. Faye is a dedicated doctor who doesn't feel she has the time it take to have a lastly relationship, so in her mind she doesn't think any man will understand the demand of her job and how important it is to her.
Dex was standing in the lobby of the resort texting on his phone when Faye saw him from across the room while waiting on the evaluator. As she was getting in the elevator she saw her fantasy fade away as a woman approach Dex a kissed him on the cheek. The next time Dex & Faye saw each other it was the next night when she attended the birthday celebration for David Drake Sr that was held at the resort for family and guest at the resort. As the story unfold Dex & Faye get to know each other and slowly begin to fall in love, Faye begin to see a different side to Dex the side most people to get to see. Dex is a laid back type of guy who likes the outdoor who loves to fish and be with nature. Faye is a more reserve, always thinking about work. The chemistry between them is intense and as they try to fight their attraction to each other they quickly learn that you cannot fight what is in your heart.
The secondary characters were equally strong and funny who helped moved the story along without getting in the way. I love the fact that Ms. Day characters was so real and believable when you have two strong willed characters who is straight forward with each other you can't help but root for them. The fact that Ms. Day took us to Southern California where some to the best vineyard is and to San Diego you cant got wrong. The love was deliciously hot and at all time it demonstrates their attraction to each other.
Ms. Day did an excellent job in the third installment of Drake Dynasty; I highly recommend this to everyone along with the two previous books.

Urban Divaz Reviews
Faye Buckner is in Temecula for just a few days of relaxation before she starts working on the new free clinic she is opening in San Diego. She is staying at the Drake resort and spa thanks to her friend, mentor and father-like figure that is also sponsoring her clinic in San Diego. He believes that she needed some rest before she started working non-stop again.
Dexter Drake's wines have helped to make his family's resort and spa become one of the most successful vineyards in southern California's wine country. He is used to playing fast and easy with all the women available to him. He believes that there are more grapes in a vineyard so why stay with just one. But when he sees Faye waiting for an elevator at the resort he cannot help feeling attracted to her, only she is nothing like the women that he usually dates.
Faye knows that anything with Dexter can only be temporary, he is a player and they are from two completely different worlds, two things that cannot be easily ignored. But the sexual attraction between them is like nothing that she has experienced before. And once they act on it, it cannot compare to any of her past experiences. Dexter cannot keep his hands, eyes or any part of his body from Faye, something that does not happen often. He is used to women chasing him, not the other way around. So when it's time for her to leave he will do his best to try and keep in touch with her and be close whenever possible.
Dexter and Faye will not have an easy time accepting what's between them.
They don't want the dynamics of their lives to change in any way, but neither can they stand to not be able to be together. So when other people come into play jealousy comes out of hiding showing that what they have is important. And unless either one makes a commitment they may both just loose out on real love and being the family that they can be.
If you want a very hot read that will keep you warm throughout the entire book Platinum Promises by Zuri Day is the one for you.
