This story starts out amazing. It has hot and snark texts and both characters, Graham and Soraya are absolutely terrific and so wonderful together. The non meeting and being phone pals and then them finally meeting, it was absolutely fantastic, romantic, sweet and so wonderful.. I loved Graham and Soraya and watching them fall in love and make a life together. Thats the first 50%.
Then the book changes drastically at the 52% mark, almost like its a totally different author and not one I like. And this is the big spoiler....Graham starts getting reinvolved with this ex of his who cheated on him in more ways then one. Total B!! Then he finds out she had his daughter and now that her husband is dead she goes after clueless Graham with everything she has. And this is where the book changes so drastically. Graham becomes this total idiot. He lets her call the shots and thats just not who he was in the first part. Soraya changes too and in not the good way. She has always felt like her father picked his new family over her and so instead of being a strong woman, that she was in the first half she becomes wishy washy and weak. She lets a bunch of she-devils talk her into dumping Graham.
The ending of the book was great because both characters finally become who they were in the beginning of the books.
However, what really bothers me in this book is that the authors not even thought to understand the train/subway system in NY. If Graham lives in the Upper West Side and Soraya lives in Brooklyn, how can they be getting on the same train to work everyday? Also, I don't think anyone in NY would say that they meet the same people in the subway every morning. This can happen if you are commuting from the suburbs, but not in the Manhattan subway!
And can we please move on from the late twenties billionaires?! Maybe there are some athletes or tech guys billionaires out there, but it is really far fetched for a wall street guy coming out of nothing to have its own investment company before his 30s. Somebody already said how ridiculous it is to have the said workaholic guy changing his ways because of some pics. Ah, btw, average workaholic finance guys in Manhattan work more than 12 hours a day.
If they are to charge $5 dollars for a book, at least they should do their research correctly.
Some complained about the obvious difference between the first half of the book and second...on this I agree...it was very clear when one finished and the other started. I'm all for collaboration between authors but sharing ideas is one thing one writing the beginning and one writing the end it another. But this in no way turned me off of this book...the second half was just a little boring and felt rushed.
Some complained that Graham acted different between the first and second half of the book...I don't agree...yes he somewhat allowed Genevieve to manipulate him but all bets are off when there's a kid involved. And I would have been really disappointed if he hadn't done all he could (including putting up with her BS) to get to know his daughter. (Sorry...slight spoiler) The fact that, when presented with the opportunity to "have" Genevieve, he didn't do it...even though he was broken hearted by Soraya shows me that his character kept his integrity and didn't allow himself to be lead by emotions. (Again, sorry...slight spoiler)
And finally, some complained about the love scenes...this I also agree with. In the first two books I read by Ms Keeland the scenes were descriptively written and the passion oozed off the page...I felt this book was more wham bam thank you ma'am!
Still looking forward to the next book by Ms. Keeland but I'm gonna try to stay away from the ones she wrote with other authors...just a personal preference.
For the money and for all the great reviews I would have liked to have read a good book. Instead it left me disappointed and I pretty much like any book. I just love to read. The writing was lazy.

However, she is also shocked by his arrogance and rudeness when she turns up at his office and tries to return the phone he dropped getting off the train. He refuses to see her and with frustration she sends him three headless pictures of herself and tell him via his intercom " Your grandmother would be ashamed of you".
Well, this comments makes him feel guilty as he knew his grandmother would disapprove of his behaviour. Unable to get thoughts of Bridget out of his head he uncharacteristically travels on the train at the same time again to see if he can spot her and the give away is the tattoo that Bridget has on her ankle.
Graham is very successful in business and wheels power with little regard to the people around him. He is used to saying and doing as he likes until he comes face-to-face with Bridget. She seems to be the only person who is not afraid to tell him the truth and criticise his actions. Gradually they begin to develop a relationship and it appears that opposites like magnets do attract.
Then, suddenly, Graham discovers he has a four year old daughter who his ex girlfriend (who also married his best friend) failed to tell him about. She looks like Graham and turns out to be his. But what will this news do to his relationship with Soraya? You must devote time to read this book and find out yourself.
The book follows Soraya Venedetta and Graham Morgan on their journey to love through the trials that are thrown at them.
One morning while on the train to work Soraya overhears a man yelling at his secretary. When his stop comes he rushes off and accidentally drops his phone which Soraya picks up, she keeps it a few days before going to his office to give it back to him with a few new pictures to boot – thus begins our tale.
Graham Morgan is the billionaire we all love to hate and hate to love, with this trope I normally start off hating the male lead character for the better part of the book and then liking him about halfway through. With Vi and Penelope’s Graham I liked him right off the bat which was pretty cool – he was gorgeous, smart, rich, sarcastic and witty as all hell and really a nice guy underneath all the coldness.
Soraya on the other hand is nothing like your typical contemporary romance heroine – although she’s not rich and doesn’t fit into his lifestyle and his ex hates her which is typical – she’s a brash, bawdy, trash talking, hair-dyed Italian from Brooklyn.
The book starts out pretty normal – billionaire finds a woman he wants but can’t have and he makes it his mission to have her in any way possible but then his ex-best-friend (whose company Graham is trying to take over) dies and Graham goes to the wake where he comes face to face with his ex – fiancé who left him for his best friend after he found them in a compromising position.
It gets worse when he meets their daughter and finds out that it’s not really his best friends daughter but his own. That was a real nice twist and I’ll admit I wasn’t expecting Graham to get so throughly involved into his daughters life – especially while the ex fiancé is trying her best to get back into his pants (including stripping naked in front of him at a later stage) but he did and it was really nice to see.
The book itself was written really well, the prose and dialogue flowed with an ease that is sometimes missing from con-rom’s; the characters despite their differences were well matched and the storyline provided the perfect amount of balance. There was one section that was repeated word for word but that’s probably just an editing error and there wasn’t really much that put me off. The thing however that made me give this book only 4 stars instead of 5 was the instalove. I hate it and no matter how good the book is written and how much much love the characters etc is ever going to make me give instalove 5 stars.
A parting quote:
Graham brought my hand to his mouth and kissed it. “No one knows what’s going to happen from one day to the next, but if the world were to end tomorrow, there’s no place I’d rather be than right here with you. That tells me everything I need to know."
1 - the FL was hilarious and brilliant to begin with. I liked her real-life fiesty attitude, to begin with. Then she just became a bit of a whinger/sap. It annoyed me. She became too 'oh no, poor me' and was actually quite brutal to the ML. I found this upsetting because it didn't need it and it didn't add anything, or any kind of grit or layer, because to me, she wasn't that person. It was like for a few chapters, she becomes another character. It actually took away from the book.
2 - The language throughout how the F and ML spoke to each other was funny, bantery, flirty, all of it, but then suddenly the author felt it was okay to turn their dialect into, once again, like we entered another book where completely sappy and overly formal/poetic speils came out of the characters mouths. I don't know if this was to try and again add layers or depths, but I once again found it quite annoying and turned a brilliant, easy, funny, read into something which became a bit grating at times.
However, harsh as the above sounds, I only mean it in the lightest of ways otherwise I wouldn't bother with a review and I wouldn't have marked it 4 stars.
Definitely worth a purchase
The two authors are fantastic together, no denying that, but the name Graham????? Come on......
