Adult Fiction | Romance
Rating: 2 out of 5 Stars
Beatrice Summerhill lives for the thrill of seeking out cutting edge investments and risking it all. But when it comes to the matters of the heart, she only knows how to run. Run away, and keep her sanity intact. They say you always compare every man that comes your way from your own father. And with the late, Reginal Summerhill as the ideal, it’s no wonder Beatrice would run for the hills from every man that knocks on her door. Some are easy to shake off. But Luca is the exception.
Luca may be a successful Formula One race car driver; one who lives for the thrill of speed. But nothing can compare to the thrill of chasing one, Beatrice Summerhill. The woman is as slippery as an eel. When he’s given the opportunity to give her the world, he asks for a week to convince her that he’s the only one she would ever need.
I am a huge fan of this author. It’s not often that I get the opportunity to read and review her books. When I was contacted by her publicist to read this, I grabbed the chance even though I’ve not read any of the books from this series. Which is primarily why I didn’t really enjoy this. I didn’t have a rapport with Beatrice. None whatsoever. That’s not to say reading the rest of the books would’ve improved this rating drastically. Not even one bit.
My major misgiving with this book, is the fact that the story moved at a break-neck speed. It was almost like Kate rushed the plot, and couldn’t wait to get out of the Summerhill’s respective lives. I was also frustrated with Beatrice, and felt sorry for Luca. The man was persistent and irresistible, but Bea’s fear of trusting anyone was her downfall. Sometimes, her hang-ups didn’t even make sense anymore. But I suppose it’s how it is when you’re finding ways to tuck tail and run.
Even if this book was a bit of a disappointment, it at least whet my appetite for everybody else’s stories. I just know that this series will be the source of a brand-new addiction, and I can’t wait to meet the rest of the Summerhills.
