Infuriating, arrogant, demanding. And disturbingly sexy. Those were the first thoughts Frankie had about Greek millionaire and volunteer firefighter Nik Kontarinis, but she was not going to fall prey to his seduction plans. She was on the island of Kathos to lick her wounds and figure out her next steps, not to become another notch on Nik’s bedpost.
A villa restoration project presents the perfect opportunity for Frankie to reboot her business and her life. There is only one problem–she needs a business partner. When Nik offers her an opportunity too good to pass up, Frankie is tempted to accept. Except that Nik has set his terms and there are definitely strings attached.
Will Frankie give in to temptation and play?
A steamy business proposition quickly escalates to much more.
Frankie was licking her wounds while going through a divorce. She left England to join one of her mother’s friends at her animal shelter in Greece. When Nik, a millionaire night club owner/fireman, walks into the shelter with an injured dog, Frankie couldn’t help but be attracted to him, but she isn’t ready for a relationship yet. Just looking can’t hurt, or could it?
Nik has the reputation of being a playboy. He enjoys short term romances, the shorter, the better. A woman on vacation is perfect for him. He can be with them and then they go home. No strings attached. But, when Nik meets Frankie, she changes his entire attitude. He could actually see them together long term. When Frankie comes to Nik with a business proposition, he counteracts with his own proposition. He will loan Frankie the money to buy her first home to flip, but she will need to be available to him, in any way he desires, until she sells her first property and pays him back. This leads to a passionate affair that leads to feelings neither expected.
This book was a fun escape. Through the writer’s words, I could easily picture the gorgeous scenery. I really liked Frankie and Nik, but the secondary characters were an important part of the story too. I became attached to them all and had a hard time saying goodbye when the book ended. I’m glad this is just the first book in a series because I can’t wait to visit with everyone again. There is also a running story, about one of Nik’s brothers who went missing as a child, that I hope will be wrapped up by the end of the series. I am curious about what happened to him too.
