If you love books by the likes of Sylvia Day, Vi Keeland, Lauren Blakely, you’ll love this addictive, suspenseful & sensual second chance romance trilogy about a man and a woman whose lives are about to get sizzling hot…
After living through her share of disloyal relationships, Evangeline Avery will be damned if she lets another man cheat her. A beautiful and confident woman, Eva is the owner of an interior design firm at the brink of collapse. She swears to bring her company back to its past glory, even if it involves sweet talking the one man who caused this turmoil in the first place - Clive Stanton.
Notorious playboy Clive Stanton is a powerful businessman and a formidable enemy of many. He doesn’t do love, or at least not until he meets her again, fifteen years after he saw her last. Eva, his crush from teenage years, the one that got away, is back in his world and he is determined to do anything to make her his.
Will passion and lust bring them together or conflict and the unforgettable scars from their pasts forever tear them apart?
~ My Review ~
I wanted to shake off the hallucinogens from the other day's read and immerse myself in what I call my "comfort blanket." I love YA anything and Sci-fi, and fantasy, and epic adventures but my go-to comfort read is romance. In any genre, told by different points of views, taken from history, star-crossed, friends to lovers, realistic or happily-ever-afters; it is the deliciousness of how two people meet, and then fall in love that gives my world a breath of fresh air. Of course, this "fresh air" was pretty heated. This is not a clean reads by ANY means. There was definitely a few erotic scenes.
This story moved at the right amount of speed for me. I finished Clive and Eva's story in a matter of hours and I've already downloaded the next book to their "continuing saga." Clive Stanton is all male, handsome, rich and has a sweet spot for the ex-chef turned CEO, Eva Avery.
With the wealthy and powerful, it seems you also get a touch of scandal, a mystery surrounding a death, car chases, and a lots of wine and ice cream. Camellia Hart took us on this ride that very few average income holders get to experience, including the glitz and glam of the MET Gala.
I loved the quick and flirtatious banter between Clive and Eva. And finally! A woman who can go toe to toe with a man is a welcome to the "damsel in distress, lip biting two dimensional characters" that's been a fixture for years. Yes, there is danger lurking around for Eva, but she's no damsel needing a prince to rescue her. If anything, she values facts and freedom, and tries to fight her own battles. We don't know what or who she's up against in this book, but it was fun to read about this little love story wrapped within this mystery..... and how sweet and sexy it was for the Prince that was Chasing Eva.
I can't wait to read the next installment!
