Alex Marinos is rich, gorgeous and Greek. Content with his bachelor ways, he never wants for female companionship. Women are a dime a dozen, and he can’t see why his family is pushing him to marry and propagate. When he meets Carlie, and is forced to get to know her and be a gentlemen as her host, he finds something in her he’s never found in another woman. And he finds something in himself he thought he never would; love for one special woman.
Carlie Bowers in staying in Zakynthos over the summer to do a photography assignment. The luxury villas she is to photograph belong to her best friend’s in-laws. Her host for this assignment is none other than Alex Marinos. She and Alex met years ago, and while their chemistry was instant, she was in a relationship. Now free, but committed to finding the right man and settling down, she’s confronted with the irresistible lure of Alex, and even though she knows he’s not one for a lifetime commitment, she can’t help herself.
All it takes to bring down an unobtainable man is the right woman. Why can’t they understand that? Alex fights his natural inclinations to seduce Carlie out of respect for his family. But she’s someone he just can’t resist. What does that mean? Carlie too is determined to not fall for Alex and his many charms, but she’s helpless. As she fights to keep her heart separate from her physical attraction, Alex struggles to identify and accept what is really happening between them.
With sexual tension and emotional drama, this was a satisfying quick read.
Photographer Carlie Bowers will be staying on Zakynthos this summer to photograph luxury villas owned by her friend’s in-laws. She could definitely use a vacation too, but she doesn’t like the idea of being chaperoned around the island by Alex Marinos. She’d already met the handsome bachelor, and they’d parted on a sour note, thanks to his forward manner. Any woman would be drawn to his dark Greek looks and blatant virility, but she had no interest in becoming one of his mistresses. She was ready to find the right man and settle down, so Alex had better keep his hands to himself!
Alex Marinos is content with his carefree, bachelor lifestyle and ignores his family’s insistence that he settle down with a wife. When he has to play host to his sister-in-law’s best friend, he’s forced to be the perfect gentleman—and keep his hands off her. Something that goes against his nature where beautiful women are concerned.
