Intrigued & enchanted
by eva simone
This story was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review.
With many of the romance stories out there, one complaint I have is how quickly a couple tends to fall into bed together, sometimes with in hours of meeting one another. A personal pet peeve of mine shall we say. I was very happy when this book did not follow that story set up. This has the markings of a real love story. It has all the necessary parts, a girl, a hunky guy who she names Mr Tall Dark Adonis, plenty of sexual tension, some history behind the characters, and of course some conflicts.
Lily Pritchard and Brandon Redgrave meet when he literally bumps into her at the coffee shop. He later needs to track her down to return her phone, and send flowers. She wants nothing to do with him and he relentlessly pursues her. I loved it, the tall dark dominant man was being told NO. I don't think it was in his vocabulary. His message:" I expect to hear from you within 24 hr." which she ignores.
Now pursue her he does and soon they do spend some time together, they become closer, she opens up to him emotionally. He helps her with her nightmares. But of course happiness does not come with out some bumps in the road and this story has some conflicts and evil that are lurking around. There will be some scary parts that we worry about both the love their share and question whether it can survive.
This was my first time reading this author and I really enjoyed the story. I thought it had the perfect amount of all the necessary parts to the story. The characters were well developed and the secondary characters really added to the plotline, I hope to see more of them in the next story. I would rate this story a 5/5 and am eager to read the next one
