Ivan and Gabrielle were great! We got tastes of them during The Blackstone Affair series. Gabrielle was sweet and smart. She has a rough past that she is trying to overcome, but she is strong. I liked how she stood her own, even against the irresistible Ivan. It seems the men in that family are all wondrous. (Side note, I must visit London more often…) Ivan is a pompous ass, but it is only his way of shielding himself for hurt. I liked him, even when he was being an ass. He was just so adorably clueless at first. But fear not, he got it together and the chemistry between those two flew off the pages! Oh! And can you say ALPHA??? Um yes. Yes indeed.
The cat and mouse game between Ivan and Gabrielle was cute and fun. Her reasons for running were legitimate and it really added to the excitement when he finally caught her.
“’I found you,’ a smooth voice said behind me.”
The moments in Ireland visiting Ivan’s castle were my favorite. The imagery was great and mirrored the feelings and experiences of the characters. It was a beautiful to picture the green countryside which only added to the romance.
“The dark, the rain and the morose feelings of helplessness matched my life perfectly at the moment.”
I forgot how much I missed the characters from the Blackstone Affair series. They were all so relatable and fun. It was nice to be back with the gang. I am really looking forward to the res to this series. This book ended with a slight cliffhanger teasing us with so much more to come.
4 stars and pair it with a blueberry mojito!
