Nik Cozakis, a greek tycoon. A bit ruthless, but I guess that because he felt hurt because of the heroine betrayed him, or so he thought. Well, he’s not without fault himself, men have to learn to express their feelings. And the way he refuse to believe that Olympia never cheat on him despite the evidence that she still a virgin is appalling. But the grovelling in the end of the book more than enough to satisfy me.

Olympia Manoulis. As far as I can remember, this is the first Lynne’s heroine who is half greek, usually they’re pure English. But she grew up in England so she doesn’t really know the Greek culture. From the beginning, she was described as overweight. But how could you overweight when you have a slim shoulder and a slim arm? It’s exaggerating how Lynne use the word overweight. Maybe you could use ‘curvaceous’ instead of ‘overweight’. As for her character, she is a bit insecure because she is overweight (or so she thought) and a bit too much pride (maybe because she is Greek).

Ten years ago, Nik and Olympia were engaged, but she broke it after seeing him kissing another girl and Nik accuse her cheating with his friend. Now, Olympia’s mother is sick and need medical attention immediately. So Olympia offering a marriage of convenient to Nik in order to help her mother. A bit stupid of the heroine if you think,because you can immediately see that the hero would take advantage of that offer. After all, you are the one in need. When Nik realize that Olympia is still a virgin, he didn’t thought that maybe Olympia never cheated him. He just want to forget the past and move on. It’s a good idea if only he wasn’t wrong about Olympia. But as I said, the grovelling part in good enough to make up for everything. Except the bit about the limousine broke down, it’s a bit unrealistic for me, because, surely it was always kept in good condition, right?

'I was planning to say a lot of other things, but when it comes down to it loving you is about the only thing I've got to offer in my favor.’
Nik Cozakis
