Loved this couple. They have amazing chemistry and they are both nice and loving. Ηeroine is feisty. Hero is caring and protective even when ...more
The story lagged in parts and I found the whole "scandalous" topless pics thing to be blown out of proportion. Heroine was the only one who made a big deal out of it because she's so ashamed of her sleazy past working in a "gentlemen's club". The H was a good guy.
Isla McBain grew up in foster homes and feeling very unloved when she meets gorgeous Sicilian Rafe Angeleri and they spend two months together in a very sensual and passionate affair, Isla discovers she is pregnant and decides that it will be best if she ...more
I disliked both main characters. The “scandalous secret” was ridiculous. The whining was annoying. I never felt any tiny bit of connection/sympathy/empathy for either of the characters. They seemed like paper cutouts. Their characters were flat and boring. Tedious.
Ok, maybe I’m being harsh and my cold meds are having a nasty effect ... nah! This really did suck. Luckily, I fell asleep in between chapters to break up the boredom. I’ll put ...more
This book made for a very nice, relaxing read. I'm glad that there wasn't a lot of miscommunication going on (I don't mind the trope but I don't like it when it's overly dragged out) between the MCs. I didn't really fault the h for keeping the pregnancy from the H (view spoiler)[ she leaves when she finds out she's pregnant and in present time, she's about 5 months) because even though their ONS turned into a 2-month affair as far she knew it was a no-strings agreement so she didn't know where...more
CINDERELLA'S SCANDALOUS SECRET by Melanie Milburne is the latest addition to the Secret Heirs of Billionaires series and brings us a yummy reunion story of a maid/artist and the hotelier she had a fling with ... and lets not forget the surprise baby she's bringing into the picture!
Isla is a complicated character. I started out feeling a little resentful of her secret keeping, but then the author did a good job of showing us her endearing side that led her to run instead of ...more
Isla McBain had secrets in her past which she was determined to hide at all costs. So when she became pregnant she walked away from Rafe Angeleri.
Rafe had no idea why Isla had dumped him and when he meets her again, he was determined to find out. But what will happen he finds the consequences of fling with her. And then the real reason she had walked away. Would he still want her?
I really loved the concept of the plot and the developing of the characters mixed with the location and emotions of both parties. Both likeable characters and all of this combined made you really want then to find a way to be together as a family. I enjoyed the sass of Isla, although she wasn't sassy in the true sense, I just can't think of the correct word. She was real. I iked how Rafe tried to do the right thing by ...more
