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.
When Sheikh Sharif offers Irene Taylor more money as chaperone to his sister than she’s ever made before, she can’t refuse—finally she’ll safeguard her family. Irene may be innocent, but she knows the trail of destruction playboys like Sharif leave behind, and will resist his skilled seduction….
Sharif excels at everything he does—especially in the bedroom! His engagement hasn’t yet been announced and he’ll enjoy his freedom until then. Starting with the beguiling Irene—she’s the ideal final challenge before he embarks on a life of duty.
But sometimes even the plans of a sheikh go awry!
I’ve read some reviews of this book and people have some serious problems with the book never having a real sex scene, but this is a sheikh story so I expected some boundaries from the couple. There’s way too much scenes with a sheikh and a hot desert night, but in reality this book felt more real to me because it showed the different world where people are actually virgin in the wedding night.
I loved Irene and her morals, she’s a sweet girl and never expected to fall in love with a big badass sheikh, she just wanted a quiet life with a guy that loved her, but we have this girl following a job offer and putting Sharif in his place. Loved thier converstasion and the way Sharif followed his heart, but also his word.
