Isabel Beachwood just lost her dream job. Now she’s forced to move out of her precious Victorian apartment, and in with her stepsister, bringing back ugly memories of a painful childhood.
Ty Griffin is a financial magnate who deals in multi-million dollar mergers and acquisitions. His bespoke suits can’t hide a body worthy of a professional athlete. Those intense azure eyes telegraph a keen intellect. And his mouth, the only soft thing about him, is sinfully sensual. But his drive to succeed has all but obliterated any chance for a personal life.
Isabel is surprised when, during her moving sale, none other than the white-hot Ty Griffin, CEO of Grandin Financial, buys her prized Carmel-by-the-Sea table. When she finds out he’s part of the reason she lost her job, her apartment, and her adorable table, she’s incensed.
The moment Ty meets the voluptuous and challenging Isabel Beachwood, he’s completely enthralled. He’s the kind of man who’s used to getting what he wants. And he wants Isabel.
While their steamy relationship heats up, an insidious danger seems to be shadowing them. It’s a treacherous threat that could ruin everything.
Soon Ty and Isabel are dealing with an over-protective stepsister, a highly trained German Shepherd, a pain in the butt Welsh Corgi, a jealous gold-digger, an obsessed suitor, a former lover, and Isabel’s quirky tech colleagues. All of which turn out to be the least of their problems.
Because the past won’t die. And it can be murder.
A chance meeting for Isabel and Ty happens when Isabel was selling something to Ty and from there he was sucked in like the rest of us. Ty is a very well respected and very powerful CEO of a company that quickly leaves a sour taste in Isabel’s mouth. And to be honest reading about Ty and something’s he was connected to left a sour taste in my mouth, but I pushed on hoping for the best.
This book has you expecting bad but quickly goes to sexy and then will leave you stunned but I will say I couldn’t finish this book fast enough to figure out the future of Isabel! My heart grew very fond of Isabel, in the sense that, I felt connected to her through being bullied and never feeling like you were good enough. Parts of this book may have been a bit descriptive for me to read and kept me from getting into the story in the beginning, but once Ms. Harlow pulled me into the story of Isabel I couldn’t put it down. Once you get to the end and are blown away by the ‘wow factor’ of events that take place, you will be extremely satisfied that you kept reading.
Ms. Harlow I look forward to reading more from you in the future and congrats on your coming release!
