That business card couldn't be right. Callie Jamieson had just spent one impulsive, passionate night in the arms of the hottest, most irresistible stranger she'd ever met. And morning's light revealed her lover to be new PR client, billionaire Nick Brunicadi….
One sizzling night of passion, then she was gone. Undaunted, Nick was determined to find and have his fill of his mysterious seductress…a seductress, he discovered, who was carrying his heir!
Review: (average of hearts overall out of 35 – so total hearts divided by five?) ♥♥♥♥♥
Calypso "Callie" Jamieson finds herself embracing her freedom the night of her ex-boyfriend’s wedding with another one of the wedding guests, only to discover the next morning he isn’t just simply a member of the wedding party—he’s the bride’s brother, and client of her PR firm. Mortified, Callie slips out without another word.
Nick Brunicadi hasn’t been able to get the beautiful woman he spent the night with out of his head. A rarity for a man who can usually have his pick of beautiful women. But when his sister asks him to check out her new husband’s business partner and ex-girlfriend, he’s amazed to find out the woman is none other than Callie. Was there an ulterior motive to their night together?
I so loved this book. The chemistry between Callie and Nick is instantaneous and continues on every page. The strong willed, independent and feisty Callie finds herself undeniably attracted to Nick, but she fights the attraction, even as memories of their night together flood her thoughts. Nick is unrelenting in his pursuit of Callie, now that he knows who she is and once his thoughts of her having ulterior motives are dismissed, he finds himself unable to deny the strong attraction between them that existed from the moment they met. And when he finds out she’s having his baby, every feeling he has for her just ramps up in its intensity. I have to say I also loved Rosa, Nick’s grandmother who appears in one of my favorite scenes in the book.
A great read, this is one book that has you strongly hoping Callie and Nick will see the light and Callie accepts his marriage proposal and these two get the happily ever after they so deserve.
