Nina Breslin figures the sexy man she meets on the Baker Street Tube is eons out of her league. Dr. Eduardo Ruiz needs a break from the heart-breaking reality of his job. And when he finally introduces himself to Nina, they agree to an outrageous plan. Can they play by their own rules, or will they succumb to the pull of seduction?
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Can I just say how happy and pleasantly surprised I was to have our male love interest in this book be Latin? I mean we read about heroes being British, Italian, French, Scottish all the time. It's about time we have someone to swoon over from Spain. And Eduardo was fully swoon worthy!
This book was so much fun. It's in the dual POVs of our main characters Nina and Eduardo. Nina is a Canadian living in London getting ready to travel the world solo. She's also a very broken lady. Just coming off of a 3 year engagement to a guy who really did a number to her self confidence, image you name it. He had her believing she was insignificant and boring and unsatisfying sexual so he was forced to seek enjoyment elsewhere. Great guy right?
Eduardo is from a very wealthy family from the Barcelona area, he's established himself and his career in London. Though his family keeps pressure on him to move back home and get married, work in the family business, have children, you know the deal. But Eduardo is quite a broken man himself. His career has taken quite a toll on him and he's closed himself off emotionally. He doesn't feel like he has anything to offer anyone.
Unknown to either of them, they've had their eye on each other in the mornings. Nina passes by Eduardo every morning on her way to work. He's outside his building waiting for his car service and she finds him way out of her league. Then one morning there's no car waiting for him and he heads for the Tube as well, in which a very fun and flirtatious commute occurs. The interactions between these two is seriously adorable and the chemistry...wow. Just wow.
This was a sweet, fun and a bit emotional read. I easily connected with the characters whom were both very likable. There were only a few sort of awkward cheese type moments when things were getting heated up and they were getting all Shakespeare on each other. Don't get me wrong I love Shakespeare just...not in the bedroom! I understand though it was part of their quirks so it fits with the story! It just wasn't my thing. I thoroughly enjoyed the story though and couldn't put it down.
Thanks to Entangled Publishing for sending me a copy to read and review!!
