Better the devil she knows…?
Patrick Fourde was once famed for the trail of broken hearts and rumpled bedsheets he left behind him. Now the fashion house CEO is determined to make his name known for the right reasons. First challenge? Getting Sapphire Seaborn, Melbourne’s Queen of Jewelry, onside.
Sapphie has sacrificed everything for her jewelry business and very nearly lost it all. She hates that to rescue it she needs to work alongside her nemesis — Patrick!
It was supposed to be business only, but Sapphie quickly realizes that when you make a deal with a devil this scorching, someone’s going to get burned…
Patrick is a true Hero, but yet when you read about him you will start thinking “He is SUCH a guy!” He has the topical statements, and his personality is a rounded version of men. You know.. the type of man that stands out: handsome, intriguing, but yet the common sense to a good relationship is ZERO. He makes up excuses, and yet blames Sapphire for asking questions, or showing out.
So, yeah.. That Guy.
However, I loved Sapphire. She had a great personality, and her character was more rounded. The story did repeat on a lot of topics, but overall the book was good! I would recommend it to others who love romance, you really should give it a try.
