The S-Factor: Sweet
Back-cover blurb: A rustic farmhouse, the warmth of a crackling fire, and breathtaking views of the countryside make the perfect setting for the most romantic evenings...
For Nick and Adele Hughes this idyllic evening for two is the last place either of them wants to be. Their marriage over, they never believed they could find their way back to each other. But, stranded in this picturesque cottage, Nick and Adele find they cannot resist the spark that has always fizzed between them.
As the twinkling firelight begins to work its magic, this couple discover the wonderful thing about breaking up is making up...
Review: Adele starts the story as a fiercely independent perfectionist, convinced she’s right about everything including the notion that her husband chose a once-in-a-lifetime job over her and the relationship has no future.
When he dive-bombs back into her life she’s adamant that no matter how much they care for each other or how strong the chemistry between them, she has to keep her heart safe from this man. Even if that means pushing for a divorce.
Nick has other ideas. He wants his wife back and is determined to break through her who-needs-men-stuff-em attitude and make her see that they were meant to be together.
But something happened during the time he spent away. Something that Nick doesn’t know about and Adele can’t bring herself to tell him. It will take more than Nick’s little boy charm to break through Adele’s proud barriers and regain her trust.
Break Up to Make Up is a fast paced, emotion packed read, filled with tension, longing and humour. I especially liked the big hairy spider, the descriptions of Super Adele (the heroine’s alter ego) and a bossy satellite navigation system with an attitude to rival Adele’s.
Harlequin Romance at its best. This book belongs on your must-read list.
