After wasting too many
years on the wrong guy, Dana frees herself and her two children to live
her dream.When she's forced to deal with paparazzi, offers from porn
companies, magazines, Hollywood and crazed fans Dana does everything she
can to keep it together for her kids. She never dreamed she'd catch the
eye of the most sought after bachelor in the world. Things like that
just didn't happen to women like her, or did they?
Having a life?
What the hell was that? Edward couldn't remember what it felt like to
live his own life without someone watching his every move. Thanks to the
paparazzi and the internet nothing in his life was sacred. Out of
desperation to keep some semblance of a life he stops living his own.
His family and work are all he has left until he's made an offer he
simply can't resist. Working with the famous author forces him to open
his heart and take a chance. Winning the heart of the woman he loves
while the world watches is anything but easy, but he never thought it
would be dangerous. His only hope is that they get through it
Once I started this book, I couldn’t put it down! I worried that I
wouldn’t like this book because the description didn’t instantly grab me
but I had nothing to worry about. This was classic Mathewson.
loved Edward and Dana as a couple. They had great chemistry and were a
great team. This is tone time that there wasn’t much of a friendship
before the couple got together and as much as I’ve enjoyed that in the
past R.L. Mathewson books, the lack of friendship worked here. Don’t get
me wrong, there was a “friendship” that was built up before they
admitted their feelings to each other, but it wasn’t anything like the
Edward was great with Dana’s kids, Cole and
Elizabeth, a natural father. It was nice to see him take to the kids so
quickly and care about their happiness and welfare. I loved the scene
where Edward met Jeff for the first time. You could clearly see who the
kids’ father figure was.
For me, this ranks up at the top of
Mathewson’s books. In a way, it was refreshing that even with all the
crap Dana and Edward went through, they had no breakups. There were no
separations due to miscommunications or male stupidity. I kept expecting
something to happen to tear them apart but I was pleased that they
stayed together. From start to finish this book was action packed and
drama filled. I can’t remember the last time a fictional couple had to
go through so much before they got their HEA, while staying together.
Overall, this was an extremely enjoyable book that kept me hooked long into the night until I finished the book.
