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!

Review:

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.

Review:

This is a short story for me but in reality I had a difficult time following. Things took forever to happen and I wanted more from this couple, they barely spent time together and we can clearly see both needed to talk more about their past and share some secrets. I understood the reasons from Sara to run away, because it’s completely unfair to a single girl just to marry a guy because her father made a couple of mistakes, but my worst problem was the fact her family never appeared to talk and he brother has a normal life and never stopped to visit her.

I liked Suleiman better, because he chose to follow a different life and he still has friends and a normal everyday routine. Yes, bad things happen but he chose to move on and try to be happy. He also chose not to betray his ruler and that was a great deal for me. They are actually great together, but they need some shrink help fast, plus talk more.
