The book follows Donovan Hart, owner of La Fuga Hotel, and the story itself is told from his POV. He’s successful, witty and confident and you are thrown into his world as he tries to find love. Having been through his playboy phase in the past he’s ready to settle down and find a lady to share his life with.
You get to experience his many failed attempts at finding that true love. From ladies lying about their identities to god awful habits, his dates are disastrous, yet quite entertaining.
Then Donovan meets one girl who has potential, Rebekah, who seems to be everything Donovan is looking for. Only one problem. She lives clear across the country and trying to maintain a long distance relationship is even harder than he expected.
Of course it doesn’t help that he finds himself spending more and more time with Scarlett Montgomery, the sweet and beautiful interior decorator working for him on his hotel. It goes against all his rules to mix business with pleasure but their connection is instant and he soon realizes some things are worth making an exception for.
But is seems a few appearance from a cheating whore could bring this new budding relationship to a halt and Donovan finds that he must fight for what he wants.
The characters throughout the book were very well written, especially Donovan and Scarlett. They were so compatible and you could really feel their connection. Watching their relationship develop I got invested and I found myself really rooting for them.
Which brings me to my only big gripe about the book. The ending!!!! Why, why, why, do you do that to us? Cliffhangers can be painful and this one was…..in a good way of course but is still sucked.
Hopefully the sequel won’t take too long to be published and we can continue with Donovan and Scarlett’s story sooner than later.
I definitely would recommend the book. It always nice finding talented new authors and I’m certain that the next book in the series will be even better than the first.
I look forward to more from the author.
