    Ugh I really hated this book primarily because of the incredibly mean and suspicious hero Nikos To say he jumped to the worst conclusions ever puts it mildlyHe lies to the heroine; he dumps her brutally; he accuses her of oh everything and he manipulates when he finds out about the baby Serena is basically without vertebrae with the exception of one scene She stands on her own for about ten minutes then capitulates Nikos magic P must be awesome When he finally shockins realizes he loves her she caves like a house of cards She could at least have made him work a littleOh yeah and the magical explanation of why his mother left is supposed to make it better? view spoilerHis inability to love stems from his mother abandoning him when he is six She tells him he is unlovable so he won't pine Later he finds out she did not want to leave because the husband was abusive Sooo she leaves her little boy with a potentially abusive dad instead? Um no hide spoiler

    I find myself in a uandry on how to rate this bookIt had the tropes I likedGreek hero with a stunning Santorini settingvirgin heroine who was strong and not a doormatbaby plotblackmailyou get the gistWhat brought this down to a four star read is the first uarter of the bookOver and overinternal dialogue and flashblacks to the infamous night that led to a conseuenceit was way too muchSo basicallythis story is about a couple who meet on the island of Santorini during the heroine Selena's two week vacationshe is a travel writerShe meets a Greek fisherman so she thinksand they embark on a hot affairshe giving him her virginity in the processOn their last night togetherthings get hot and heavyno condom usedand the heroNikos informs Serena to contact him if any conseuences of their night developSo conseuences develop and Serenanow three months pregnant decides to go tell her fisherman that he is to be a father in personBut waitNikos is not a fishermanhe is a billionaire shipping magnateSerena finds this out just as she is to board her planeThus begins this couple's rocky road to romanceBoth Hh came from less than happy childhood homes which deeply affected their adult livesI really enjoyed the second part of this book as the tone and intensity picked up to make an enjoyable readLovely epilogue which I always love when an author includes it

    Beautiful love story Serena and Nikos are both vulnerable and broken They both had an ugly childhood Nikos is your typical sexy tycoon with mother issues He doesn't want love Love had only ever caused him pain Serena is reluctant to marry him for convenience just because she is having his baby When she fell in love with him she thought he was a simple fisherman Now she learns he is a ruthless tycoon Will she be able to trust him? Will Nikos realize he is in love with Serena before it's too late? This Harleuin reminded me of my favorite vintage Harleuins I loved Serena She was sweet and innocent a truly classy warm lovable heroine Nothing like your modern bitchy heroines Nikos was alpha but his vulnerability made him lovable These two had great chemistry I loved them together Sex scenes were passionate and the epilogue heartwarming

    I found this HP not the easiest to readWe have Serena who finds out she's pregnant after a two week romance while on vacation with a local fisherman Nikos The final night they where together they had unprotected sex because they both became over come by there passion Nikos becomes angry and wants Serena to let him know if there are any conseuences She leaves to go back home realizes she's pregnant and returns a couple months later to let him know of the conseuences Oh and as she waiting to board the plane back to Greece she finds out he's shipping billionaire because her News App flashes something about a Greek Shipping Billionaire what???This is part of my problem with this story We have about a third of the beginning story going on and on about this final night that almost makes no sense His anger the unprotected sex her reaction it was repetitive and had inner dialogue that was so dry It really made no sense in regards to why he was angery geez half your fault buddy We have issues of his abandonment from his Mom and how he could never feel love Issues about her being the reason her parents had to stay together in there miserable marriage because she was a mistake her parent had been getting ready to split up After I read through this portion of the book with difficulty the rest was a little better Nikos and Serena come to the decision to marry They now have a push and pull in there relationship Serena with will he ever love me and Nikos with will she abandon me like my mother and can I ever loveAgain this wasn't an easy read If you can get past the first half the second half isn't bad Netgalley for an honest review

    This is by far the worst one night with conseuences I have ever read The dialogue between the characters in the very beginning seemed forced and extremely awkward It went absolutely nowhere You're having my child I'm having your child You're going to give my child away to your sister No I'm keeping my child I don't believe you You're going to give my child away to your sister LIKE ? This conversation isn't directly from the book but readers of my review can understand my drift and where I am going with this Anyways towards the middle I thought the dialogue would get better and it did but then Rachael Thomas set fire to my hopes and dreams because in the end the dialogue went back to being piss poor The only thing I really liked about this book was how different the heroine decided to treat the hero's declaration of love Bravo for that part but boo all the rest Skip this read is my final recommendation but read it if you want to see what I liked about the ending

    soooo underwhelming I couldn't finish Liked the plot but not the storytelling as it did not engage my interest

    i just loved the way the author described this hero Many authors create heroes whose physical appearance is over the top handsome but this guy is just delicious And the heroine was both feminine yet assertive She was a welcome change from the extremely loud mouthed heroines one finds in many HP romances these days

    Great premise but awful execution It was boring dry and utterly unengaging I am struggling with some of these heroines that are currently emerging in Mills and Boon land They are stupid and judgemental and unnecessarily stubborn This one feels guilty because her parents had an unhappy marriage and also guilty because her sister is struggling to get pregnant whilst she’s fallen pregnant after a night of wild sex Selina returns to tell the hero but discovers at the airport that he’s a billionaire and not simply a fisherman She spends the rest of the book telling him he lied to her and ‘knowing’ he didn’t love her and she apparently has failed to know him at all during their 2 week affair The hero Nikos is eually annoying He goes from being a relaxed steamy lover for 2 weeks to being an absolute jerk when she returns and that behaviour is never satisfactorily explained Nothing seems real The prose is turgid in places and there’s so much internal monologue that I lost interest I have read other stuff by this writer and enjoyed it This just did not work for me
