Named one of "The 20 Greatest Ever Romance Novels According to Goodreads Reviews" by O, The Oprah Magazine
Young interior designer Ava O'Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward--a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn't want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can't control the overwhelming desire that he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.
Love this trilogy!
My normal Work audiobook listening carried over into my home life. Couldn't put the trilogy down!! Reminded me of 50 Shades meets Crossfire series meets Intern series but British. :)
Oh dear, this book is truly is cringe worthy. While you are constantly told by the protagonist and other characters how sexy, ‘Jesse’, the love interest is- it does not come across, instead he is cheesy, and overbearing in a haughty father figure sort of way (not the sexy way that I imagine the author intended). He just has no grit. And there is none of the ‘fantasy life’ that is typical of billionaire-love-interest romance. If you are interested in a billionaire-style raunchy romance, I highly recommend J. Kenner (particularly the Stark series).
This is a bit of a personal preference but if you’re reading a British romance I think have a celtic love interest will always be a bit more interesting/appealing than a haughty Englishman. On a positive note the narrator is very good.
I enjoyed book 1. I am looking forward to the other two audio books.
