Overall, this was an exciting yet sweet romance, with just the right touch of passion. While I did feel that the villain was a little much, I admit I did enjoy the excitement of the action that ensued as a result of his, well, villainy. My only real complaint about the story was that I actually wish that the “bet” mentioned in the description had been left out entirely. Sure, it threw the hero and heroine together, but to be honest, I think the romance was beautiful enough, and had enough outside conflict that it could’ve still been a wonderful book even without the bet.

Even outside of that though, Max and Olivia were absolutely perfect for each other, and I loved watching them both have to alter their plans for the future as they fell in love.

A very solid 4/5 Stars.
