It was an ansgty reading. The book was good, but there a few things I didn't like/enjoy.
1. I didn't feel the hero and heroine share many moments together :(
2. The sickness of hero's father and his fake relationship with the heroine were around 50% (more or less) the focus of the story.
3. Around 3 or 4 chapters before the end of book, hero and heroine share more moments together

On the other hand, the story was told in 3rd person, but both main characters had their POVs ñ_ñ

#BookLove2018: Demetrius Kastro

—Claro, lo había olvidado —le dijo duramente—. Prefieres a los hombres mayores, muy mayores. ¿Por qué? ¿No te van los hombres de tu edad?


Es una historia muy estupenda. El viejo magnate Kastro vuelve a su casa después de semanas internado en el hospital con una hermosa y elegante mujer en el brazo. Automáticamente sus hijos intentan separarlo de la "cazafortuna" pero para su desgracia, el viejo no es alguien que se deje dominar y mucho menos cuando muestra un ca
When Demetri Kastro arrives at his Greek island home for his sister’s wedding, he sets eyes on Joanna Manning. He is overcome with forbidden lust. For cool, blonde Joanna is his father’s mistress and there’s a good bit of biblical kink about wanting to tap that.

Joanna has appeared out of nowhere – last Demetri and his sisters knew, their dad was in London getting cancer treatments. Now he’s back home for his daughter’s wedding and snuggling with gold-digging Joanna on the couch. It’s all very m

I love Anne Mather's books and this was a pretty good one from her.

2.5 Mistaken Stars

“What are you, Joanna? Apart from my father’s—”
“Go—go to hell!”

A decent read with about a judgmental Greek family, their tricky father and the innocent woman stuck in the middle.

Joanna meets the patriarch of the Kastro family, Constantine, through her job at a London auction house. They become fast friends and he gets her to open up about her life. When he learns that he has an incurable illness, she becomes the person that he confides in and a source of comfort for him.

Read and rated in May, 2011.

I can't remember much of the novel if I'm honest but I don't give crappy ratings to books that don't deserve it, so based on the rating I did give it.. I assume it was a pretty damn good book.

Pretty good story that kept me interested and entertained for the whole book. I liked the characters, and that Joanna's back story was rather original (view spoiler). I kept thinking that the father had her there to try and set up the son with her, but it didn't get vocalized that way. Overall, a good story.

The hero thinks that the heroine is trouble .. he sees her with his father and sees dollar signs in her eyes but in reality the heroine didn't care about money ... she was with our hero's father because they were close friends and nothing more
So-so story. I thought there were other ways Demetri's father could have handled it without dragging Joanna's reputation through the mud.

Bu hikaye beklediğimden daha iyi ve daha güzeldi. Hem kurgusu hem de olay döngüsü... her şey o kadar güzel ayarlanmış ve yerli yerine oturtulmuştu ki ilk hikayedeki eksiklikler sanki bununla kapanmıştı.

Bundaki aşk daha güzeldi, zaten geçmişten yaralı olan Joanna, Demetri'nin kalbini çalmayı başarması ve bunu yaparken kendi kalbini de sunması süperdi.

Çok beğenerek okumamın yanında nasıl bittiğini anlamadım da bir baktım Joanna ve Demetri birbirlerine sokulm
Decent. I would have enjoyed it a bit better if the situation where he despises her because he thinks she is his father's mistress was more drawn out. But instead he fell for her pretty quickly. She had some interesting back story. I do get tire of all these Harley heroines who turn down bequests though. Come on be sensible, especially considering it wasn't really taking that much away from the family members. It was just small beans to them and she had been friends with the old man for years.

How did I miss this book? This was a wonderful story about a family dealing with a dying figure aka father. He asked his dear friend the heroine (who has been thru hell by her ex hubby) to help him cover up the fact that he had terminal stomach cancer. It was a great book with enough drama to keep it real and for once very little slut shaming. The hero was conflicted and endearing. I loved every minute and it took me one sitting to finish. In fact I was so engaged in it that my kids had to wait ...more

I love angst, and I really like it when the hero thinks his woman is sleeping with his father. That causes so much forbidden angst. Anne Mather just knows the needs of my heart. Joanna was fun because she just kept letting him make a fool of himself by insinuating she was a useless gold-digger.
