Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Lady Amber's Reviews & PR and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


The man with the iron will… Meets the woman who will change his life!

All the money in the world couldn’t save Leonidas from the pain—and guilt—of losing his loved ones. Since then, he’s forbidden himself all pleasure in life. Until he meets enchanting innocent Hannah at a lavish party in Greece… Reeling from the discovery of her fiancé’s infidelity, Hannah is determined to swear off men. But her instant chemistry with Leonidas is undeniable. And for one night, they break all their rules, indulging in red-hot oblivion—with inescapably powerful consequences…

My Thoughts:

Hannah May just wants to move past her pain.  Leonidas Stathakis doesn’t want to forget his past but does want to move forward.  This seems to be a case of in the right place at the right time.  Hannah and Leonidas meet at just the right time and then the story takes off from there.

The author weaves a good story.  If you like your book boyfriend to be moody, good looking, rich, and just needs the right woman to love him than you’ll be happy with this one.  Hannah seems to be a young woman who seems vulnerable but willing to let the man take charge.  She’s apprehensive, like most of us would be, but that doesn’t mean that she won’t accept help.  Her reactions to certain situations seemed very realistic.

The question of “how would you react if you traded places with her” came to mind.  Leonidas has a strong personality but there are moments where you will like him – he doesn’t shirk his responsibility.  He has a brother that we see just enough to make you curious as to what his story is.  This story shows how quickly life as you know it can change.  Not much is written in stone and your life’s plan can change and we’re not always ready for it.  This may be a work of fiction but it has a ring of truth to it.  In getting toward the end of this ride, Leonidas has an epiphany that he shares with Hannah – and us.  There are times where we reflect on our lives and here it was Leonidas’ turn.

We get to take a trip to Greece without having to leave our chairs – and you don’t even need a passport.  Our author does have me thinking I need to take a trip, bring her book, and go exploring for some of the places our couple may have been.  Sometimes when you’re reading you try to picture the places where the story is taking place.  Picturing the locations that are mentioned are easier if you’ve been there but it can be difficult if you have not.  Maybe playing some of the country’s music will help set the mood.  I’m looking forward to take my next trip with both the author and her characters.

Clare Connelly writes romance that will set your soul on fire. She is the best-selling writer of more than fifty indie romance novels and in August 2017 published her debut novel for Harlequin Presents, and has a title coming out with Harlequin Dare in February 2018. She reads and writes romance voraciously, and lives in a small bungalow by the sea with her lovely husband, two small children and a hard-working team of MacBooks.
