Genre: Romance,


I love  L.A.Fiore’s writing, and have enjoyed the first two books in this series. Each is stand alone but the characters are connected and crop up in each novel, its like meeting old friends when Trace and Ember, Lucien and Darcy appear.

Once again its a cracking romance, with a plot that isn’t just the romance and the issues between Avery and Rafe stopping them being together, but an underlying plot featuring Rafe’s parents that brings Avery into danger. Its great to have a read like this, one that’s more, more than just a simple romance, a novel that has you thinking “why, how, when” and wondering just how its all going to work out, will Rafe and Avery get their happy ending.

Ok, its a romance read so we know they will but I need to feel the barriers are real and LAF makes it feel genuine. I really cared about the characters, the felt very realistic and that’s important to me, I can’t enjoy a read unless I want the main leads to get the HEA.

I loved the description of Avery’s desserts, mouth watering – and of course Rafe’s fabulous furniture. His home sounded wonderful, though getting phase one of the gardens and all those plant set in within just a few hours didn’t quite sound right – having a large garden myself I know it takes hours and hours – days and days to get stuff done!! Still, its storyland so I’ll let it pass 😉 The secondary charters were terrific, not only Trace, Ember, Lucien, Darcy and their kids but Rafe’s dad, the staff at Clover and Avery’s family. I loved too her step-mum and Melody, Rafe’s sort of girlfriend – great B itch characters, and for me they always add an extra spark to a story with their behaviours and rude, snarky comments.

Great read, perfect mix of sexy, seductive romance, humour and suspense. A hit and re-reader.

Stars: Five, fun read with that extra spark that makes for a keeper.
