London Montgomery’s has a hectic life as a secret hotel reviewer, having to keep working to fund her mother’s increasing medical bills. Now, however, she’s going to take a break from working and have a real holiday in Barcelona – or that’s what she’d planned, including devising a list of things she’s hoping to do on her dream vacation. Her arrival in the Spanish city has a dramatic encounter at the train station . . . when a handsome Catalan comes to her rescue. It turns out he’s going to the same hotel . . . . is this fate?
Her rescuer is Mateu Espasa and he’s actually the CEO of the hotel she’s staying at – but he’s not telling her that! He knows her undercover job and assumes she’s working. He’s determined to ensure she has a 5* experience so her review will reflect well on the hotel. However, the two are seriously attracted and sometimes the best laid plans can have added twists! With both keeping secret their knowledge of the other, motives are bound to be questioned and the big reveal open to misinterpretation and confrontation. When confession time arrives the reactions are heated and potentially romance killing. However the reconciliation makes it all worthwhile and the ending is both heartwarming and endearing – it certainly left a smile on my face!
This is a fast-paced, action packed and enthralling read. The author brings the characters vividly to life and it is especially easy to empathise with the main characters each having serious concerns regarding the health of one of their parents. I’ve enjoyed every book I’ve read by this talented author and I have no hesitation in highly recommending this to other lovers of romance who really should also check out her other books!
I requested and received a copy of this book via NetGalley without any obligation. This is my honest opinion after reading it.
Mateu Espasa, CEO of Barcelona’s most luxurious hotel, knows how to deliver a five-star experience. When he learns the identity of hotel reviewer, London Montgomery, it seems harmless to play as her local tour guide to make sure she enjoys her stay and places his hotel back in the running for the Elite Life and Travel Magazine’s hotel of fame. But every moment with London makes Mateu want her just as much as he needs that review.
Constantly working to cover her mother’s medical bills, London needs to have a little fun on this vacation. First on her list: Kiss a hot Spaniard, and her knight-in-shining-Armani at the train station seems to fit that bill—he’s local and definitely hot! But when she discovers the man charming her is really CEO of the hotel she’s reviewing—supposedly secretly—she decides to see how far he’ll go to make her dream vacation a once in a lifetime experience.
Mateu shows her the romance of his city and his soul, but when the truth comes out, the fun is over, and it turns out nobody wins in a game of hearts.
