But after their split Dimitri discovers that Xandra Fortune is not who he thought she was--...more

Greek billionaire, Dimitri Petronides, is forced to give up Xandra Fortune, his girlfriend/mistress, to marry the woman his Greek grandfather had chosen for him. Xandra was devastated because she had just taken a pregnancy test and the result was positive. She leaves the day he kicked her out but she does call him and asks to meet him but he doesn't believe she's pregnant.
He finally realized after a week that sh ...more
WTF 1) Xandra Fortune is a European model. Gosh, can't tell you how easy THOSE are to relate to. It's a good thing she wasn't a supermodel yet because I never would have been able to relate to that.
WTF 2) But she's a model with a secret identity. (Again, good thing she wasn't a supermodel because the superhero/supermodel jokes would fly.) You see, Xandra Fortune is really ...more
I added one more star this time because hero convinced me of his love and how sorry he was for his rejection and rude words to the heroine. He searched her for a long time. she was so strong. Both infront of her mother and her behavior and against their breakup. I appreciate that they both took responsibility for their actions. The angst level in this was high. And their breakup scene was very hard to read.
Loved the grandfather and all secondary characters.
I strongly recommend.
In all fairness, since I've now read this twice, at least, I need the stars to reflect that. The H is still a little lacking, but he does suffer towards the end. Or at least he says he does.
Read this a while back and never did the review.
Xandra is a model in France and is afflicted with two major problems.(view spoiler)[One problem is her selfish mother who allows Xandra to work and pay for her mother's rarefied lifestyle as well as put her little sister through a private college all the ...more
But let me remind myself: remember Kiki, he came to his sense conveniently AFTER the fiancée ran off and married the brother and started to look for her AFTER she was evicted and AFTER she left Paris which was actually one week after him throwing his tantrum because she had the brains to think she needs to give him time to cool down. Also he neither apologised nor explained the reason ...more
Oh my hell. I'm a sucker for these asshole heroes who cast out their pregnant girlfriends, denying the child their girlfriend is carrying could possibly be theirs. This story was perfection. Dimitri was a gigantic asshole of epic proportions, when he devastatingly broke up with Xandra to marry someone else. And the way he evicted her from his apartment was cold as hell. I LOVED every second of this story, from the heartbreaking devastation, to the groveling by the ending. It was ...more
The most gripping part of the story was the beginning (even then it's only moderately angsty as I don't find this author's writing style, although well-written, to be overly emotiona ...more
Dmitri and the Xandra have been lovers for a year, she was a virgin before him and for their time together they've been basically living together in an apartment in Paris. He knows her as the blonde green eyed model Xandra Fortune. When Dmitri's ailing grandfather gives him an ultimatum he has to end his relationship with his mistress/girlfriend? to marry a sui ...more
I really enjoyed this novel when I read it. I enjoyed this in a demented manner. I remember getting really upset at the heroine for cutting off all her beautiful hair. Wtf ?! Why do authors even do this shit to heroines? Cutting off your beautiful hair because your cold hearted bastard boyfriend dumped you? That's masochistic. That's not a symbolic eradication of your old glamorous life. You can be glamorous and sad at the same time bitch. Never allow a man to make you ...more
It's my fault because I read Vintage's review and I knew I wasn't going to like it so I erased it from my to-read list but forgot to add it to my will-not-read. My bad.
If the hero is a jerk because he is grieving and/or he wants revenge (even if the heroine is totally innocent and he knows it, or not) I can take it, believe me I've loved really jerks heroes.
But here? Even though he knew he was her first lover and been together for more than a year he's sudd ...more
It was perfectly ridiculous. I loved it. *sighs wistfully* These Harlequin Greek tycoons are just what the doctor ordered--the boost to my immunity I needed.
Purchased ebook book from Amazon.
My only negative, is I think she forgave him too easily. It would have been so much stronger to draw out the reconciliation.
This is Dimitri's story, the older brother who was to marry Phoebe (but his brother did instead) in The Latin Lover: The Greek Tycoon's Inherited Bride\Back in the Spaniard's Bed.
This one was well-written, too, and I enjoyed the plo ...more
Anyways, the first few chapters were painful for me but the Hero totally redeemed himself in the end. I love that the h was no pushover. He suffered for what he had done to her and I got my HEA.
Xandra is heartbroken when Dimitri bre ...more
and this is coming from someone who has been reading romance novels since (never you mind) and I have forgiven A LOT of odd plot lines in the name of HEA.
The story reminded me of those old Loveswept series circa 1980s. I saw that it was published in 2004 but that can’t be right. It had to be a reprint.
First off, Xandra (Xandra?) Fortune is a French supermodel (working only in Europe) who ...more
