3.5 stars. I started liking this book when I got to this passage:

“Pretend to be your what?... You must be insane!”

“I assure you I’m perfectly serious.”

“But your mistress? Who even uses that word anymore?”

And though it’s a fairly conventional modern Harlequin Presents, I kept liking it. Andreas is arrogant but not really an asshat... well okay, he does consider getting the heroine pregnant on purpose, but I confess, in a romance that never bothers me. ;-) And there are lots of little touches that

.............LOTS AND LOTS OF SPOILERS.............

So here’s the plot….this really “idiotic” girl from the Australian Outback meets a guy on the internet. Her “nanna” gives her money to travel to London…but what does she do??/ Doesn’t buy a return ticket home (which we all know is cheaper than a one-way!)…but worse than that…she gives the guy...yes from the internet, her money and her “virginity”! And what happens next??? You guessed correctly!!! He dumps her

Satisfactory if you like Greek billionaires, heroines being used to break-off with hotelier’s assistant/one-night-stand/mistress, revenge plots, makeovers, misunderstandings, heroes who can’t cope with their evolving emotions, and beautiful Greek Islands, all of which I like on occasion. Geez, just imagining Santorini kicks it up a star!
I have read ALOT of HP and to be honest this one deserves a 3 star at the most but the way the h Cleo made the OW cry was delicious !!! Ahhh if only heroines in other HPs were this smart in dealing with OW :))
Thought this would be a four star book right up until the end. The confrontation and quick resolution of what should have been a traumatic event was covered in mere pages and then they were off a speedy HEA.

I liked this one, it was a nice little story. I liked both leads and especially enjoyed the setting on the Greek island of Santorini, it seemed beautiful.
In a word, this book was beautiful. I loved every moment of it. Yes, the story was cliché, with the poor woman more or less being coerced into a deal with the rich guy who has crazy amounts of money... You know the sort. But for some reason, these stories are just wonderful. For some reason, they really bring out the meaning of love to me.

Throughout this book, I never once felt bored, I never once felt that the story was too slow. In fact, I wished the story could have been longer so that I coul

I started reading Harlequin novels when I was a teen. They were quick comfort reads. I knew what to expect and rarely would they exceed those expectations, but they always met them.

Modern Harlequins are more likely to exceed those expectations. The formulary is much less obvious and they usually read like any other book with the exception of the required happy ending. It’s less often that you have a powerless female character who meets a powerful male character and he sheds some of his arrogance
Cleo grew up amongst the spinifex and red soil of an outback town. She was the Muriel of Kangaroo Crossing, never expected to amount to much. She fell in love with a Karl on the Internet, and with the money her Nanna gave her she bought a one-way ticket to London. Karl turned out to be yucky. He took her virginity, took her money, and then kicked her out.

For ages in this book, I was under the impression that Cleo had been intending to start a business with Karl. I can get a bit skimmy when I rea

Off off Yunanistan'a gitmek istiyorum kitap sağolsun ne de güzel anlatmış :) Fakir güzel(çok güzel değil, kendi tabiriyle) kız ve zengin yakışıklı iş adamının anlaşmalı ilişkileri ve sonrasında rolden gerçeğe dönüşen bir aşk... Karanlık bir şey üzerine kurulu olan hikaye daha sonra değişik bir yöne kaydı... Hikaye her ne kadar oldukça bilindik olsa da hoşuma gitti :)

Andreas passa dos limites do bom senso, primeiro faz uma proposta descabida para Cleo, pedido para que ela finja ser sua amante por um mês, em troca da bagatela de um milhão de dólares.

Já que era fingimento porque o grande objetivo dele era levá-la para cama?

Andreas me cansa, apesar de ter sido carinhoso com Cleo, apagando, definitivamente da memória, a primeira vez dela, que foi horrível. Neste ponto tenho que tirar o chapéu, ele foi um v

Very good book

I liked this book because the hero didn't treat the heroine like trash even though he was rich and powerful. The H treated the h well which made me like him even more. Trish Morey you are one of my favorite writers. Keep it up.
Ahhh, how do I even begin to describe this book? Which would make a review even harder to come up with. The kindest I can say about this was that it was much of a cliché read. It was nothing to get much hyped about though.
