I like the angst but at least h and ex-wife's red hairs and green eyes could be a different shades. Also, I remember ex-wife's name immediately but even while reading, I struggled to remember the heroine's name. And lastly, I love Ms. Connelly's grovel scenes, where was it in this book?

I know my friends didn't like the Hero mentioning his dead wife and son non stop but I understand the man ! He lost his family it's not easy to forget such a huge thing and pretend it's never happened!
I love C.C books and enjoy them , and this one was no exception , Leonidas was a tortured man with great pain and grief, Hannah was like the sun shine to his darkness , I love reading about a tortured man redeemed by love and a sweet kind hearted like Hannah 😊
Loved the epilogue and super EXCITED a

Good read. Tortured hero and sweet heroine. The whole dead wife issue didn’t bother me but I didn’t reallly feel the chemistry between hero and heroine. It was well written though :)

I don’t usually like romance stories where the hero has a dead wife. Well this hero has a dead wife and son, I was prepared to hate it- I didn’t. Leonidas was rich, sexy and handsome as hell but he was a tormented wreck until he met Hannah one New Year’s Eve. Hannah was an angry disappointed virgin who’d just found her fiancé in bed with her cousin. So when these two angry, hurt human beings literally ran into each other sparks went flying. This story was well written and it wasn’t boring or ful ...more

Losing his wife and young son through a vendetta against his mob-boss father, stole any heart that Leonidas Stathakis ever possessed. He has no room in his life for a relationship, and even less room for love. He can give a woman one memorable night, but beyond that, only making money is important. He buried his heart with his wife and son, but when Hannah May bumps into him on his fourth New Year's Eve alone, his body comes roaring back to life. One night, that's all he ever gives the women tha ...more
I was lucky to receive an advanced copy of this book and I was hooked from page one. I read the entire book in one sitting - it was fantastic! Leonidas is a widower who doesn't believe he can ever love again, let alone have another child. His son had been murdered along with his wife. But Hannah reawakens his desire and they share one passionate New Years Eve together, which means more to Hannah than Leonidas. After finding her fiance in bed with another woman, she hops on a plane to Greece wher ...more

I have complicated feelings about this book. Did I think it was terrible? No. Did I think it was great? No. There are a few things I can say with certainty. I do think the book had potential but in the end it was buried under the heroes never ending lament for his deceased wife and child. Now, do not get me wrong, I have experienced more loss and grief than many have and I know how hard the past can be to let go of. The anger, the guilt, the intense desire for things to be the way they once were ...more

Hannah and Leonidas are two lost souls looking to re-discover their place in the world when fate finds them in the same bar on new years eve. One night with no promises later, Hannah wakes up alone, and begins to establish a new life in London when she discovers that one night had consequences, and finds herself on a mission to track down Leonidas to tell him that he is going to be a father.
What I love about Clare Connelly's writing is that she always manages to insert a healthy dose of emotion
Lynn Reynolds
Hannah May just wants to move past her pain. Leonidas Stathakis doesn’t want to forget his past but does want to move forward. This seems to be a case of in the right place at the right time. Hannah and Leonidas meet at just the right time and then the story takes off from there.

The author weaves a good story. If you like your book boyfriend to be moody, good looking, rich, and just needs the right woman to love him than you’ll be happy with this one. Hannah seems to be a young woman who seems v

This was the first story I’ve read by Clare Connelly and I definitely enjoyed it. The writing was great, and the story good. The reason for the four stars was that the characters were a little cookie cutter. It seemed a little formulaic.
Leonidas Stathakis was a broken man due to the murder of his wife and son years prior. An act of revenge, not towards Leonidas, but towards his father has left Leonidas dead inside. On paper, he’s one of the richest men in the world, but he’s all business. He le

This book was fantastic. From the very beginning, I was drawn to Hannah’s and Leonidas’ back stories. Hannah was a genuine heroine who having her fiancé sleep with her cousin was traumatizing at best but missing was the confrontation she should have had with her cousin Michelle who was sleeping with her fiancé Angus. Leo’s back story of losing his wife was heart breaking but this story even though it was involving a billionaire was very realistic. The romance came full circle and I found myself ...more

Who is Hannah? How does Leonidas meet her? Who is Thanos? What is his relationship to Leonidas? When Leonidas sees Hannah for the second time, what is going on? Why is he upset that she is there? What changes that emotion? How? Who are Amy and Brax? See how Leonidas almost loses everything in his life for a second, or maybe third time. How will it turn out? Who are the winners and losers!?!??

A big thank you to NetGalley and Harlequin Publishing for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. I enjoy Harlequins they are a quick relaxing read. This was a bit different. I still liked the book but didn't love it. Leonidas was sooo frustrating. He got a bad deal, yes his wife and son died but look at what's in front of you. He used his fear as a crutch. Hannah fell in love in one evening. Fast but ok and she put up with alot. It's a HEA of course but it was close. 3 stars

Clare Connelly is one of my all time favorite authors. Her latest book The Greek's Billion Dollar Baby features a cheating finance, a dead wife, a passionate one night stand and an unexpected pregnancy. Overall I enjoyed the book however I had to take off 1 star. I just couldn't get past the fact that Hannah resembled Leonidas dead wife.
