SUMMARY
When American art-history graduate Emmy Reed arrived in London, she was hoping to land her dream job with an exclusive scoop on a famous reclusive artist. Thrown into the path of millionaire playboy Jase Beckett, Emmy found herself agreeing to be his date for a family wedding when she discovered that her sought-after artist was his grandfather. After a stunning weekend of intense sexual connection, even amidst his family's devious scheming, neither Emmy nor Jase wanted to let go. But both had been burned by a lifetime of family tragedies and, with neither able to say what the other wanted to hear, Emmy returned to San Diego. Now, realising he's been a fool, Jase follows Emmy, determined to leave the past behind and fight for his future. But will San Diego be far enough away to escape the dark, damaging secrets that surround the Beckett family—especially when the revelations threaten his and Emmy's lives, as well as their relationship?

MY REVIEW

Here’s the thing, even if two people spend just a few days together, when they find someone they click with, it’s pretty much a done deal. Of course, you gotta dig deeper to know for sure and decide the (proper) course of action, but that’s difficult to do when you don’t acknowledge how you feel—or start to—even to yourself in the first place. Right, Jace? And yet, considering the tragedy that burned him deep in the past, I didn’t have it in my heart to completely bash him. And apparently Emmy didn’t either... In fact, if things were steamy in England, they got scorching hot in California!

Although there were certain events that should have taken a slower pace in my opinion, and I didn’t get the insights I was hoping for, Jace and Emmy still gave me a good time—they got the best of it, though. And what about that turn of events I didn’t see coming towards the end? Off I go to the next and final part!

RATING: 3/5
