Review: ♥♥♥♥♥

This past December Kate Walker celebrated her 25th anniversary as an author. She is a master storyteller and The Konstantos Marriage Demand show cases her talent with an unforgettable, highly charged and emotional romance which will delight you as much as it did me.

Sadie Carteret is on a mission to protect her mother and little brother by begging if she must, the man she left standing at the altar five years earlier. He has obtained his revenge of her family for the way he was treated and now owns all of the Cateret’s holdings which include the family mansion. Sadie’s mother is very fragile and so she’s determined to approach her ex-fiancé and beg if need be to allow them to stay in their home. What’s she’s met with when she finally meets up with Nikos Konstantos is a man full of hatred for what her father did so many years ago to his family, the very same thing leaving them with nothing. Now he’s had his revenge and he’s going to rub her face in it!

Nikos Konstantos is stunned when he sees Sadie. She is still lovely and has the power to attract him but he’s determined not to make the same mistake again. However, the sensual pull between them is too much and when he can’t help himself during their meeting, he kisses her and the tension, need and want is still the same for them both. However, he’s determined to have the upper hand and demands she meet him for dinner and he offers her a proposition, no a demand, that she must accompany him to Greece as his hired wedding planner to plan his wedding. Can Sadie survive planning a wedding for the man she once loved and who is making her crazy? Is Nikos really getting married? Talk about a roller coaster with charged emotions!

While reading the first chapters of the book, it was very obvious this couple had been deeply hurt and manipulated by their families past hatred and revenge. Sadie was a pawn in her father’s plot years ago to take down the Greek family. It’s also obvious that Nikos is using Sadie and that he really hasn’t gotten over her nor she him. Their time spent in Greece is extremely rocky, with barbs, accusations hurled, yelling, name calling and on and on. However, under it all, one just knows they are confused and still care for each other. And then it happens, truths are told……they kiss, they make love and it gives one hope until a picture appears in a newspaper and Nikos feels again betrayed.

The Konstantos Marriage Demand with its emotional plot and intense passion will have Kate Walker fans adding this book to their “keeper” shelf. It’s second chance theme and the way it was executed by the author was exceptional.
