THE HERO. . .
Nikos Konstantos, greek billionaire. Five years age he was engaged to be married to the heroine. But there was a feud between their family. Her father really hate Nikos’s family, so he destroy Nikos’s family and business. Of course that angered Nikos so he vow to ruin her family. He suceeded, of course. But when Sadie came to him to seek help, he wants to take his revenge to another level. Not just about business anymore, but to get back at her for hurting him by claiming her as her bride. He won’t satisfied until personally punish her. Well, that, and because he still desire her.
THE HEROINE. . .
Sadie Carteret, ex-heiress of Carteret Incorporated. Her father died about six months ago, left her mountains of debt. When her house threatened to be taken away from her, Sadie had to do something, because his mother’s and little brother’s life depended on it. So she come to Nikos to ask for help. I don’t remember when the last time I met a heroine like her. She stutter too much, almost every time she opens her mouth. Or that just in front of the hero? Anyway, because she was brave enough to seek help from the hero, and five years ago she even plead for him in front of her father (who is a really hard person), she should’ve pictured with more backbone than that. And she is so gullible. How come she didn’t suspicious because Nikos refuse to bring his fiance so they could discuss the wedding arrangement. So obvious that that’s just a sham.
THE STORY. . .
Sadie Carteret seek help from Nikos Konstantos, to save his agoraphobic mother and little brother from a homeless future. To get a revenge on her for her betrayal five years ago, Nikos agreed, but in exchange she have to come to Greek to plan his wedding. That’s just an excuse so that he could seduce Sadie and to bed her. This story is pretty boring, with too much description and too few conversation. Well, if you prefer a book full with naration, then this book wouldn’t be a problem for you. The surprise at the end of the book is pretty obvious, but that explained a lot of things.
THE QUOTE. . .
‘You have my heart, Sadie. You have my heart and my love—they are yours for ever, no matter what answer you give. I am yours. There is no other woman in the world for me.’
