Summary:

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!

Review:

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.

Summary:

An indecent indiscretion! Emma Hayes has gone from making hotel magnate Cesare Falconeri’s bed to running his household, including handing out expensive parting gifts to his numerous conquests!

With one disastrous marriage behind him Cesare vows never to go there again. But when his indiscretion with Emma has consequences, Cesare must break his own vow—and say I do for the sake of his heir. Now he’ll expect his new bride to share his bed, instead of making it!

Review:

I had two problems with this book, but nothing series so the romance was actually really good. Cesare is a prick in most of the story, and he treats Emma really bad, but he suferred a lot and now things are difficult in his heart. My other problem is Emma naiveté. Can you imagine a girl who is in love with her boss and just let him treat you badly after the great one night stand? The girl was sad and he just seduced her and them dumped her.

They are great together, but we can see that in reality they needed some time apart to really consider their feelings and miss each other. I liked Emma more when she started standing up for herself and picking fights, because she can’t just bow to everything Cesare wants. Cesare became such a perfect man after he learned about the baby, super cute. I just love when big alpha males became putting in their kids little fingers.

This was a great story, but I had a hard time accepting Vladimir as a good guy, so I expected a few bad things to happen to him. At first when he let her win to save her sister, I thought he was a good guy with some wounded pride, but after I realized he jus wanted to own her and get a bit of revenge, but he’s so successful and ruthless with business that I thought he could at least hire a detective to investigate her life after he left her ten years ago.
During the story we discover that Vladimir met Bree  when she was just a girl and a con artist because of her father, but since he died she had to do whatever it takes to save her sister and raise her. So she was alone and doing the only thing she knew, but things changed and now the only thing Bree does is work. I really liked Bree and she was so turned about what to do with her life after realizing that Vladimir was no more than a strange.
I liked how this couple found a middle ground, but they need to learn to handle the problems better. It was a bit strange seeing how the almost made the same mistakes again just because they couldn’t talk with each other.
