Sadie Reynolds is a college student that was previously traveling around Europe with her boyfriend. She found out he had been cheating on her. They part ways and she is on her own. On her way to catch a train to Barcelona she is mugged and a passing car stops to help her. Help comes in the form of a sexy, rich Frenchman, Olivier Dumonte. This pair has an instant connection.
These characters are layered and there are personal struggles that each character must work through. Sadie is not ready to take a chance on what they have. She is comfortable with where she is in life. Olivier has a lot of family dramas going on in his life. Some of it creates trouble for Sadie and Olivier.
There are some fantastic, steamy scenes. The story kept me entertained. I loved all of the secrets, drama, and intrigue. I kept trying to anticipate where the story was going and I couldn’t do it. It was a great read.
I can’t wait for more of the Dumont family. Karina Halle never disappoints.
