★★★★☆ Not all of this author’s books are meant to be humorous, but this one is, and she does it with wit and charm.

Our Heroine, Leandra, is close with male friends, Chris and Demos, who are themselves in a secret, romantic relationship. Demos, banking on her loyalty, friendship, and sense of fun, asks Leandra to pose as his ‘airhead’ mistress, but only while his cousin (and Our Hero), the wealthy and powerful Theo Atrides, is visiting England.

Theo, there at the behest of his ailing Greek

Yee Gads...I just did NOT like this book. It started out fun, but as the book progressed the Hero went from being arrogant to VILE and the heroine went from strong to TSTL.. Normally, I can handle an arrogant, truly Asshat hero upfront as long as they evolve into a worthy hero. But not this time...Theo goes from bad to worse and worse and worse. The scene that really threw me over the edge was when he drags her off to a clinic to see if she is pregnant because he believes she set out to trap him ...more
I usually enjoy Julia James....Just didn't like this one. Hero left me completely cold. Heroine was an idiot. As an aside, hero Theo also belongs in prison.

1) Theo tries to get rid of heroine, his cousin's mistress, so his cousin can be forced to marry some poor, pathetic Greek girl (I was so sad for that girl). Of course, hero is too busy sleeping around himself to fulfill any family obligation.

2). Theo was moralistic and self-righteous...I'm very tired of seeing this in a hero who sleeps with

4 Stars! ~ Leandra is very loyal to her friends. When her friends Chris and Demos ask her to pose as Demos' lover to discourage his family from pressuring him into an arranged marriage, she agrees. All she's to do is live in Demos' apartment and pretend to be a air head mistress for the duration of Demos' cousins visit in England. One look at Leandra all dolled up in a revealing gown, diamonds (on loan from Demos) and layers of makeup, and Theos figures he knows her tune. He's certain that Demos ...more

I was fairly disappointed with this one. I get that being kidnapped and held hostage by a sexy billionaire can be, well, sexy. I didn't find this one much sexy. I guess that comes down the the characters. They annoyed me.

Theo was cold and completely without emotions. There just was no getting under his skin or into his head - at least not beyond the "I don't trust women" issues he had.

Leandra was whiny and completely closed off for an unexpected adventure. Sure, it was an initial shock, and the

This is a very good story. Theo is such a great character! And Leandra is more than a match for him.

Obliging his dying grandfather who wants grandchildren, Theo arrives in town to convince his cousin to return to Greece and marry. But upon seeing Leandra, Theo is shaken, moved, overwhelmed. It goes far beyond a sizzl

Theo is a Greek Adonis incarnate and has been sent to London to bring back his cousin, Demos is to Greece and make sure he marries the girl selected for Demos by family.

Demos is gay and he and his partner decide to show that he has a (fake) mistress now so he's not interested in getting married. He doesn't want to hurt his grandfather who's on deathbed and desperate need for a heir. He asks Leandra, an actress and friend, to act as his mistress.

This book has insta-lust! Acceptable as it's expect

Diculik hanya karena penculiknya tidak tahu bahwa yang di culik hanya membantu benar2 membuat panik Leandra.
Apalagi disembunyikan di sebuah pulau dengan pengurus rumah yang bisu tuli, kiri kanan yang di lihat hanya laut, bagaimana caranya dia bisa melarikan diri ?
Apalagi ternyata pemilik pulau yang bukan penculik adalah orang yang paling ingin dia hindari.
Walaupun akhirnya hubungannya dengan Theo bisa berjalan lancar, terlalu lancar sehingga akhirnya menghancurkan hatinya, dan Leandra terluka.

Khas cerita JJ, si cowok orang Yunani dan ada opsi bahwa si cewek (yang putus cinta) akan membesarkan anak seorang diri dan menyewakan rumahnya sebagai tempat penginapan di musim liburan.

Cerita novel ini bagus, dan terus terang saya malah lebih terkesan dengan Demos Atrides ketimbang tokoh utama pria -Theo Atrides. Sepertinya, Demos lebih cakep dan imut ketimbang Theo yang kuat, kekar, maskulin... Macho banget gitu... Ya, secara, saya yang gak demen cowok macho, jelas jadi rada rada ilfil ama k

Menurutku ceritanya datar dan membosankan... apalagi pas di awal2..karena seks terus yang dipikiran si Theo dan Leandra... jatuh cinta karena fisik.. padahal Leandra udah dipermaluin abis2 an dan udah dihina plus dituduh macem2 sama Theo, tapi masih aja nafsuan sama Theo nya...

Perkembangan hubungan mereka terhitung cepat dan tidak bertele-tela. Sayangnya Theo terlalu brengsek dengan kata-kata yang dia ucapin ke Leandra. Okelah dia punya trauma, tapi dia lelaki dewasa please omongan dijaga 😒😒. Beberapa ucapan maaf dia juga repetitif dan gak to the point, beda jauh kalau dia lagi ngamuk ke Leandra ucapannya kayak lempar bom bertubi-tubi

2.9 bintang karena gak ngebosenin buat dibaca

Julia lives in England with her family. Mills and Boon novels were Julia's first "grown up" books she read as a teenager ("Alongside Georgette Heyer and Daphne du Maurier."), and she's been reading them ever since.

Julia adores the English countryside ("And the Celtic countryside!"), in all its seasons, and is fascinated by all things historical, from castles to cottages. She also has a special lov
