Isabel Chambers is an ordinary, working, single mother of two, who needs some "me" time, so, kids sorted, she books herself into a hotel for a week of rest and relaxation.
Marc Sanders is an American professor at Harvard University and is in England to present research results to Cambridge University.
Two people, out for adventure and excitement, meet and begin a journey of fun, thrills, lust and desire. But, is Mark all he seems to be? What is he hiding?
This captivating story will keep you page turning from the sexy opening to the suspenseful ending.
A fantastic read- loved it and would highly recommend it.
Marc was beautiful. It's not often I would label a man this. Hot, Sexy, Gorgeous, he is all of these but in my minds eye he was Akin to Colin Firth (Mr. Darcy if you like) and he is all of the above, but mainly, beautiful.
The plot line was great from the get-go and I never bored, the twists were totally unseen and I know there are more to come.
I look forward to the next instalment!
Upon reading the synopsis of the book I was further intrigued to read that the female lead was a plus size lady and the story was set in England.
The characters in this book have to be the most realistic that I have ever read. Isabel is a single mum to two boys, persuaded by her friend she takes the opportunity to spend a week away from them.
Whilst away she meets Marc, he is a Harvard Professor in medicine and has come to Cambridge to present his research to Cambridge University.
The relationship does develop very quickly, however, I found I had to remind myself that it had only been a few days, I felt like they had together a lot longer.
As their relationship develops we do find they both have a story, something in their past and Marc' s story is in jeopardy of being exposed. Whilst I didn't find the book suspenseful I sense we have more to come from book two.
The attention to detail in this book was amazing, whether it was in Marc' s work or the detail to the buildings in Cambridge. The author had clearly done her research. The story flowed and at just over two hundred pages it could be a fairly quick read.
So why should you read this book?
It is a romance story first and foremost, there are no alpha males or weak women in this story. Isabel does not need saving, she is a single mum having some "me time", Marc is fully aware of her son's but wants to show Isabel how to enjoy herself. I think it's great in the synopsis that the author mentions that Isabel is a size 18/20, it's not pivotal to the book and only really comes out when she goes shopping but it helps the reader to connect to the character. I think the story has potential and am so glad that book two is already out and book three is on its way.
Both find each other attractive, both are visiting Cambridge for a limited time and both want some fun whilst they are there.
Isabel is taking time out for herself from her kids and Marc, a Harvard Professor from American, is working at Cambridge University.
The story is lovely and fun to read, you know Marc is hiding some things, but the question is what?
This whirlwind romance kept me reading and wanting more. Can’t wait to sink into the next book.
Isabel, a working single mother decides that she needs some me time. So she books a weeks holiday . Staying at the hotel Is Marc a good looking Harvard Professor visiting Cambridge. They embark on a loving sexual relationship. However both characters have secrets.
This is an entertaining read with likeable characters particularly Isabel, an ordinary plus size Mother who never thought she would catch the attention of an attractive man.
If you like an easy to read romance with sex scenes give this a try.
