This is another great story with a fantastic location, great characters and a riveting plot in the Amalfi Night Billionaires series! I really enjoyed the first one, ‘The Billionaire’s Temptation’ by Katherine Garbera , and this one maintained the same high standard and is a thoroughly enjoyable read.
The De Luca family have a growing chain of hotels and one is on the island where they usually live, Isola del Fiori. It is here that the half sister that Janine Pike never previously knew about is living and working. Janine quit her job and was backpacking around Europe, making this location her final destination before returning home again. Unfortunately, after a fantastic party, her travel companions sail off with her backpack, phone, passport and clothes leaving her sleeping on the beach and with the bar bill from the groups partying.
With only €20 she’s devastated until the handsome, charming piano player steps in to help her by contacting her half sister. He’s actually Sheldon Myerson, friend of the De Luca family, wealthy and highly successful TV mogul but she doesn’t recognise him. He’s on the island for privacy after another messy break up with his equally famous glamorous model girlfriend. He decides to keep his identity secret from Janine, to see if their highly volatile attraction develops into anything more. Will their love stand a chance? What about when the press find out? What about when she discovers his deception? How will her half sister react? Is there any chance of a HEA for Janine?
I was right, Mimi Wells has written a great addition to this series, maintaining the robust, complex and believable characters from the first book and adding her own plot full of turmoil, indecision and derailing interventions to make the journey to their HEA a highly entertaining roller coaster read. I’ll certainly be looking out for further stories in this series – and by this author – in future.
The books in this series are:
The Billionaire’s Deception by Mimi Wells
The Billionaire’s Betrayal by Nancy Robards Thompson
The Billionaire’s Secret by Kathleen O’Brien
The Billionaire’s Charade by Eve Gaddy
