Two lavish destination weddings set the stage for romance and desire…
Hot Night in the Hamptons , Nana Malone
A fling with the gorgeous best man is not on Elina Sinclair's to-do list as maid of honor at her best friend's Hamptons wedding. Yet former child star Gabe Anderson is intent on seduction. He's also a new client at her image consulting firm—which makes a relationship strictly forbidden. Can the onetime playboy convince her that he's the best mistake she'll ever make?
Seduced Before Sunrise , Jamie Pope
He was Willa Arthur's first kiss, her first everything, before his cruel betrayal shattered her confidence. Years later, Marcus Simpson has turned up in Costa Rica at the wedding of Willa's best friend. The white sandy beaches and lush jungles are irresistible—and unfortunately, so is the man she should hate. But Marcus wants more than just forgiveness. He wants Willa back, and a tropical paradise is the perfect place to prove how much…
Two stories for one! Both steaming-hot novellas that will add another heat index to your summer. I never can decide if it is a bonus, or do we miss on the story and character development because of the two novellas instead of one novel.
Hot Night in the Hamptons is sizzling hot. The attraction between Elina and Gabe gets even hotter, if possible, because of the forbidden affair they are attempting to have. I liked the honesty and straight forward thinking of Gabe. In the situations that kept rising up, he was true and honest, with the best intentions.
In Seduced before Sunrise Willa and Marcus have a painful history, that no one else is aware of. Willa's anger towards Marcus after all the years since the high school was surprisingly strong and made me wonder how had she been feeding it over the years, to keep it burning red hot. But the anger turns into hungry passion, Willa, and Marcus still trying to hide their attraction to the point.
They were great together, they seamlessly fit together, complementing each other, making a great team.
Both stories are good, entertaining, enjoyable, charming and delightful with engaging characters and alluring scenery. Light, quick, and perfect end of the summer reading with high heat factor.
