Emotional, angsty but sweet romance.
Bay and Digby meet when Bay is set up through Digby’s sister in law to interview for a job as an interior decorator. Both of them have an instant attraction and chemistry for each other. Digby is wary of love and trusting others and letting them in and has vowed to never marry or have kids. Bay is six months into being the sole guardian for her niece after the death of her sister and her husband. Both Bay and Digby have in common families that were not the warmest or loving and both carry with them the baggage that comes from growing up in a toxic environment. In addition, both have family drama that continues to complicate their lives.
This was an incredibly sweet romance filled with angst and a lot of emotions. I’ve been a Harlquin Presents/Mills & Boon Modern fan for a long time, but haven’t actually read one in the last few years. This is my first in a long while and my first Joss Woods book, but it most defnitely won’t be my last. I loved that although this features a “billionaire” and he definitely is the typical Presents/Modern hero, he also had a sweet and vulnerable aspect to him that really added to the emotions in the story. I also loved that Bay was no doormat, and stood her ground, but also didn’t spend her time constantly fighting against the Digby. This was emtional, angsty but also sweet and I highly recommend it. Despite it being part of a series, it is also a standalone. I have not read the first one in this series, yet had no trouble following along.
