Romantic with a hero to swoon over!,
This review is from: The Most Expensive Night of Her Life (Modern Tempted) (Paperback)
I really enjoyed this! I've read some of Amy's novels before and she's really excelled in this one!
Blake is an ex-soldier, and has worked hard to try and get his life together after his days at war. Together with his brother they have a building company for high-end clients, such as Ava Kelly. Supermodel Ava is more used to luxury yachts than canal boats. But when shots are fired and Blake saves her life, Ava realises she desperately needs refuge, and Blake's canal boat is the perfect place to hide out. Blake isn't very happy about this, Ava is the last person Blake wants in the boat, but when Ava promises one million pounds to Blake's sister's charity in exchange, Blake can't say no. With Ava in close proximity, Blake is find it hard to keep his hands off of her...
The characters were brilliantly written, I genuinely cannot fault a single thing about these characters. They were so lifelike and raw and real and I loved that they each had their own background story, which I found to be really interesting.
Blake...WOW...what a character! Ladies - he's an ex-soldier and a brooding one at that....all-together now...SWOON!!!! But he is SO MUCH more than that too - I particularly enjoyed getting to know him throughout the book and my heart ached at his background story, and all the pain and heartache that he had been through. I loved that as readers we were given such a look into his life, his thoughts, his feelings, and what has made him the person he is today. Amy Andrews I LOVE you for writing such a different and complex character into your novel and for making him so strong and lifelike, and for leaving me completely in love with him.
I also liked that Ava wasn't all she seemed, and that there was a lot more to her underneath the supermodel persona that she displays. I liked that as a reader we were able to explores a lot of emotion from the characters and really delve into their backgrounds.
I wasn't initially sure how Ava and Blake would react together, but let me say you are all in for a treat with them! I loved how they are from two entirely different worlds but they went together SO well! I enjoyed their clashes, their initial thoughts of each other, and then there was their flirting and the tension between them was terrific! Their scenes together are sizzling and very passionate!
You need to buy this book - The Most Expensive Night Of Her Life is romantic, with characters you will love, and very sexy moments! Amy Andrews has written a FANTASTIC novel and I'm already looking forward to re-reading it again!
