Release Date: 7 November 2012
Being confronted on the beach by a sexy stranger wasn't part of Natalie Conner's plans for a peaceful morning taking photos. And why on earth would he think she's taking pictures of him, anyway? Who is he? One thing’s for sure, he’s hot, and incredibly romantic, feeding Natalie’s wounded soul.
Luke Williams just wants the world to give him a break, so seeing yet another camera aimed at his face has him ready to pounce on the beauty behind the lens. When he finds out she has no idea who he is, he's intrigued and more than a little tempted by her. Natalie has a body made for sex, a sassy mouth and Luke can’t get enough of her, but he’s not ready to tell her who he really his.
Natalie is a no nonsense girl who doesn’t do well with lies and secrets. What will happen to this new relationship when she discovers what Luke’s hiding?
My Opinion 2 STARS
I can honestly say that i hated the first 90% or so of this book. It was a if a young teenager had written an adult book that had a dirty mind. I spent most of my time groaning in frustration and eye rolling at the cheesiness and speed at which things happened. Not to mention how much happened that I'm thinking well why not, lets throw something else into the pot.
We have Natalie a couples and landscape photographer who lost her parents three years ago. She lives with her best friend and has been all but adopted by her family. After an altercation with a former boyfriend she is minted along with the proceeds from her parents estate.
Luke is an actor turned producer and shuns the limelight. He all but mugs Natalie for her camera when he thinks that she has taken his picture, something he hates.
They meets up later that day in a shop by accident where he apologies again and invites her out for a drink where they get to know each other over margaritas. She then after saying she felt fuzzy drives him home. Um HELLO. Not cool!! When at his place she has a glass of wine and drives home. Again HELLO. Drink driving?
They end up hooking up where she spends the weekend with him sleeping with him and doing other things she would not normally do with a man before he meets her best friend Jules. Thats where she finally finds out who he is and freaks. Once he's left she feels guilty, however Jules takes her shopping the next day and they come back to a garden of roses on her front door step.
All is forgiven. They basically spend most of their time together, fucking all over the place like Horney teenagers bareback and where when meeting his family there is a hostile sister and her temper gets the better of her. She gets quite a temper in this book.
They go on magical dates, go and holiday and fuck more and he needs to go away on business just after he has proposed, where low and behold she feels after having sensitive nipples, sick. Doctors of course say shes pregnant. Putting on the telly has photos of Luke and a former colleague all over and she gets jealous, hormonal and angry and decides they have to split up and turns off her phone.
After being released and having a cry fest she goes home where Luke has flown home early worried and they have a shouting match. She wakes up in the morning and is sorry and goes to his house to find it empty. His sister arrives to say that he has been in an accident. Blah blah blah.
Of course she sits by his side,his family visits, she wont leave him and he wakes up. Where she promptly says shes pregnant.
I think, if so much hadn't have been thrown in it might have felt believable, unfortunately the writing was a severe let down.
Unfortunately i have downloaded the first five books, and as i already have them i feel obliged to read them rather than to put them aside and accept any loss.
A very disappointing start to what had been brought across as a great series.
