This is the first book by author Angelle Trieste, and I thought it was a great beach-book debut. How often do you have a cello player as a protagonist? Or an albino doberman as a minor character? Trieste definitely has a fertile imagination, and I look forward to seeing more of her work.
So, the story: Victoria and Damien seem like they're completely mismatched from the start, but as you read through the novel they become drawn together. Damien is hiding something, and believe me when I say that the revelation at the end of the book comes as a complete surprise! I totally did not see it coming! Anyway, once you know what that is all the other stuff that came before suddenly makes sense. Recommended for anyone who likes a good romance, a brooding hero and hot love scenes.
