So nice to catch up with Tess and Tom, I really loved their book, No More Wasted Time.
Mat really needed a slap up the head, and it all made sense later on, but he really needed to grow a pair. He so needed to stand up to his mother. I was not expecting the twist about him meeting someone, but was so pleased that Shayla was free to start something with John. Oh my what a hunk, the fact he was younger shocked as he came over so more mature. The spark was immediate, although Shayla had made her mind up to not like him, after beating up Tom. The wedding came over in a perfect setting, without all pomp and ceremony, and a media circus.
You really felt the connection between Shayla and John, they just oozed romance. The sex was smoking they just fitted!
Shayla had a hard child life, not gathering many good memories, but her life changed when she went to live with Tom, her uncle. I thought the Christmas setting at the cabin was really lovely, even the proposal was beautiful, then the awful twist! my heart was in my mouth.
The epilogue was fab, really glad how things ended, can't wait for the next installment.
This story had me crying a little in parts but with a lot of laughter to.
I fell in love with this two straight away.
John is one of the most loving and sweet men I've read about I loved both shayla and john so much
Thank you Beverly Preston for another beautifully told story.
We were first introduced to Shayla in the first book - No More Wasted Time (Tess and Tommy's story). Shayla has been working for her famous movie star uncle (Tommy) as his PA for the last ten years, ever since he took her under his wing after she escaped from her life of drink related violence at the hands of her father and the indifference of her mother. She is in a safe, if staid relationship with Mat, who is in the throes of the politics trail under the domineering steer of his mother. On paper Mat is everything that Shayla should need but his blasé behaviour towards her is secretly telling her something is missing. After a disastrous Thanksgiving with Mat and his family, she gladly welcomes an escape to her uncle's surprising invitation to his wedding to Tess in Greece.
It is here on the private plane taking them to Greece that she meets Tess' son John for the first time. The beautiful, protective John who she hates after he took his fists to her uncle when believing a gutter press article that Tommy was cheating on Tess. All had now been cleared up but Shayla still cannot get over the brute tactics she felt John undertook. However, after a frosty start, she gets to see first-hand how gentle and protective John is and she starts to see John as the person he really is.
Things start to hot up in Greece when the relationship starts to develop and Shayla is thrown into the passionate world that John creates for them. It is then she needs to decide - does she play it safe and go back to Mat or does she jump freely with her arms open wide into the unknown but tempting life that she knows John can offer?
Oh I absolutely loved this book! I first fell for John in the first book, loving the way he took over protecting his Mom, Tess and his sisters, JC and Tracey after their father died. To now see him in this book with Shayla, a very sexy and desirable man in his own right was breathtaking I loved the part where they both found out about their ages. I won't spoil it by revealing but it took the book up another notch for me. I was thinking "You go for it Shayla, just do it!" Fabulous!
The locations were another winner in this book. I could really feel I was back in Greece with the little white houses and the sea breezes wafting in the evening. But then we were transported to Christmas in Colorado and the snow. The book took you on a journey with a total spectrum of locations and atmosphere.
When reading the first book I remember wanting a little more angst and Beverly Preston did not disappoint in this book. A huge curveball was thrown right in just when you thought we were on our way to HEA land. Oh. Em. Gee. It was a `heart in the mouth' moment thinking that something totally different to what I was expecting to happen.
I absolutely loved this book and was sad when it ended. A truly beautiful and amazing read.
