Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Greek Millionaire, Unruly Wife
Author: Sun Chara
Publisher: Harper Collins/Impulse
Published: April 2017
This is a contemporary second-chance romance with most of the background reasons for the split between Michalis Leonadis and his wife Julia happening a year before this books starts. They’d had a whirlwind romance, married and, on the day she discovered she was pregnant, she returns home to share the news with him, only to find him with another woman. Totally crushed by this, Julia leaves him without telling him she’s expecting his child. When he forces his way back into her life, threatening to claim custody of their daughter, Amy, he definitely has the upper hand and he’s determined to have his revenge…..
There are definitely aspects of this story that make it an enticing read. The truth about the events isn’t revealed until near the end of the book (and I’m not sharing them!) but they make so much sense once you know. The relationship between Michalis and Julia is tempestuous because of their misunderstandings, stubborn attitudes and fear to reveal their true feelings for each other. There’s blackmail, a shipwreck, confrontation and unhappiness to be experienced before these two can finally put the past behind them and move on to a future together. It is essentially a lack of communication that causes all the angst and once they actually talk things can be resolved. I felt like figuratively knocking their heads together at times. Ok, the sexual attraction is there but boy do they need to talk to each other! Once they do, things are resolved at breakneck speed and I suspect I’d have been happier if there had been an epilogue to round things off. It is a short, quick, steamy read with a strong alpha male determined to make his wife pay for not listening and trusting him….
I requested and was given a copy of this book via Netgalley and this review is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
A tempestuous fling…a marriage…a betrayal?
When Michalis Leonadis’ bride jumps ship at the first sign of rough waters, he’s annoyed. When she costs him a marriage and a billion-dollar deal, he’s furious; but when he discovers she ditched him whilst harboring a secret…he’s out for revenge.
Ex-model, Julia Armstrong gave up everything for Michalis but when she catches him with another woman, crushed, she jets out of his life. The proud Greek blasts back into her world seeking retribution—in exchange for a divorce, he demands she relinquish the one thing she cannot. Her daughter. Only one other bargaining chip remains…Julia herself.
