“Have we met?”
Answer: a right hook! Because Bryony Morgan pulls no punches. Even when she’s very pregnant and facing down the father of her unborn child. She fell for wealthy hotelier Rafael de Luca when he courted her for her beachfront real estate. Then he disappeared. Now, she’s in New York for answers–and she won’t accept a brush-off.
But selective amnesia after a crash has Rafael puzzled. How could he ever forget a combustible beauty like Bryony? Solution: return to the island where they met, and relive the unforgettable nights in question–until he remembers everything…
Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating perspectives.
Note: This is book 1 in Maya Bank’s Pregnancy & Passion series. (The titles were shortened at one point for a print/ebook rerelease). While each book covers the entire arc for a single couple – references to events are made as the series goes on that makes these best listened to in order.
Meh. It wasn’t that good, but I didn’t DNF. I borrowed it from the library, so it didn’t cost me any money which is probably the only reason it didn’t make me mad.
There’s a LOT of book here, but it’s repetitive dialogue and not much of it works to truly redeem Rafe or prove he’s permanently a changed man. Bryony is a strong woman, except for the fact that she sort of puts up with Rafe’s nonsense.
Grand gesture and then bam, all is forgiven. Ends on a HFN, but there are updates on them as the series continues.
I like Harry Berkeley’s narration. However, I think he’s a better fit for her romantic suspense (KGI series). I do like all his character voices and emotions.
