I received this book from NetGalley and Harlequin in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Ultimate playboy Sheikh Tariq lives life firmly in the fast lane!Independent to his core, Tariq relies on no one but himself – with a little bit of help from his indispensable, sensibly dressed PA, Isobel Mulholland. When a car accident leaves this dynamic sheikh injured and reliant on Isobel, his first reaction is to be furious! The only way through it is to make the most of having Isobel at his beck and call – and under her enchanting touch Tariq’s thoughts turn to seduction . . . This sweet girl, who has been under his nose the whole time, could just be the Sheikh’s undoing!
For some reason I love sheikh books, these are my favorite different romances. They are almost not contemporary because the reality and the life is completely opposition from the occidental, so it’s like a fantasy for me and I loved watching Tariq discover his secretary is actually more than he hoped for. I liked this couple and we can clearly see that Tariq wanted more for his life, but circumstances and golddiggers make things difficult for him and the only person he really trust is Isobel. They studied together and that for me made things more special.
Tariq needed someone to see him completely and Isobel was perfect because she knew him before all the fame and money. He was just a kid when they met and she had a crush on him for ages. Their conversations and moments together showed how deep their love could go real fast.
