I have recently read the first book in this series and absolutely loved it. I couldn’t wait to find more books by this author and add them to my ever-growing collection of books. So when I got an email from Harlequin saying since I read and enjoyed the first one would I like to read the second book in the series. I was so excited, I promptly responded yes and waited for my ebook to arrive.
Adelaide Song wants to prove to her Grandmother that she is no longer the party girl that messes up. She hatches a plan to create a charity event and without telling her long time love of her life Micheal, she tells her Grandmother that he is on board to help her publicize it. The more they start to work together the more sparks fly. Can they both get over their individual issues and find love with each other? This book was soooo good. I read it in two nights. Staying up way past when I should just so I could read more of it. I loved all of the characters. I loved Adelaide the most out of all of the characters. Being an heiress to a vast fortune and company but she was super insecure with how people viewed her. She wanted to be accepted for her work ethic and how well she could do things.
The romance that the two main characters kept me going the whole book. It was hot and steamy. A constant will they won’t they in my mind. I was so happy when they finally aired all of their issues out with each other and it was happily ever after. The author made their relationship and all of their own personal issues something that an actual person could relate to. Nothing this time was relatable to me but the way she wrote them I felt like someone could. She made the characters personable. I will certainly be reading more by Jayci. Her next book in this series comes out in December and hopefully, I get an email asking me to read it!
