When Dante Durant once more appears in Samantha Trey’s life, it is again to manipulate and use her. However this time Samantha knows what is going on and is determined not to allow the charismatic and gorgeous Greek to play with her heart as he did when they first met.
“So you are now working for my father.........let me guess the two of you concocted this little blackmail and if I play ball and find some good little boy who will knock me up with his beloved grandchild, you don’t produce the other set of books”.
Her voice dripping with disdain
“You are half right” he had replied softly
“But you know fine well I would never work for your father.........this was all my idea”.
Blackmailed into a marriage to the one man she had ever loved she must protect her heart and also the secret she keeps which keeps the hatred for him burning deeply within her. But will she really be able to walk away from him again as she had so many years ago, and will he let her.
The end sucked!
Now Marie Kelly has become one of my guilt pleasures. She only really has two or maybe three story lines, and then she just mixes up names and a few (but def not all) locations and discussions. I regually find myself thinking that I've read that exact paragraph in another of her books. And let not get me started on the editing (had had had had ).
For all that... I have found that when the book world is letting me down, I can pick up one of MK's and - eye rolling at all of the above aside - I enjoy the read.
Well, for the most part I did enjoy the first half of this book but the ending SUCKED big time (the technical term of course). I really didn't enjoy the last half much at all. It was almost ok as far a MK goes but it all just seemed rushed and a bit 'slap-dash' (yep, another technical term) as far as another moment of angst or confusion.
Again... MK is my guilty pleasure and I hate that I have to pay for her books (even the one or two dollars)... But I still do.
So of you are looking to give her a go... I would recommend trying one of her others.
The main character Sam has obvious self esteem issues to want to be with a man who repeatedly tells her he is using her and treats her poorly. I find it utterly unbelievable that she would want to be with Dante after everything, his character isn't even likeable! I am not a fan of stories where the female main characters fall for the jerk when his only redeeming feature is he is good in bed. Yuck.
