This is a quick read with strong characters. As a second novel in the series I had hoped for more storyline and got it. I was impressed with the details, not only of what’s happening but the places, cultural references and a little history. Mia and Nick are a match made in hell it seems as they do nothing but fight. Both are bound and determined to get their ways. You will find a lot of romance, drama and even some steam in this book. I am excited for book three!

Effie has done it again and in my opinion has done it better than the first time! The characters are larger than life and come to life as you flip each page. The plot is well written and keeps readers attention from start to finish! In my opinion the author has pulled readers in even better than the first installment and I know they best is yet to come!

This is the second book in the Meraki Series and I loved it. I feel in love with this book as I did with the first one. The author has done it again with the beautifully written plot and characters. I’ve fallen in love with this authors way of writing. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series and more books from this author in the future!

As this series continues I am yet again captivated by the relationships of both friends and family detailed and developing throughout the storyline. You could if you wish read this fun and heartfelt book on its own but I do highly recommend reading this series from the start as there is a storyline threaded through this book that started in the first and I believe will further develop in the 3rd. You won’t want to miss any details.
This book brings us the story of Mia and Nicholas and adds more to the story of the wonderful Yiayia and her life. Wow she is one sassy woman that I’d love to have in my life. Nicholas falls for Mia straight away but boy oh boy does he hate that idea and acts out accordingly. In fact his hostility around her is so strong she is absolutely convinced he hates her. Again there are lots of twists and turns in their story to keep you captivated and wanting more! Bring on book 3 I say!

When reading a series of books you always hope the next book is just as good or better than the last but you’re never really sure till you actually read it. Let me just say book #2 in this series definitely doesn’t disappoint.
The author did a great job again with the storyline and the characters. I really liked being able to “see” some of the characters from the 1st story.
The little “extras” at the ends of some of the chapters were nice little surprises I enjoyed.
The language, culture and history of the characters were nice to see as well.
If you need a reminder that fate & destiny are real then you definitely need to read this story.

I was super excited to read this next book which focuses on the story of Mia and Nicholas! I got to know Mia a little bit in the first book of this series so I was happy to see that she got her own story.

Mia has just landed her dream job at a luxury magazine. She loves doing photo layouts and travelling around to see the sites for her job. Her boss sure is one hottie though…but looks to be attached at the hip to someone else. Little does Mia know, Nicholas and his sister run the company together and often make public appearances side by side.

Nicholas is, let’s say, rough around the edges and makes it nearly impossible for Mia to work with him. She quits her job several times only to have Penelope, Nicholas’s sister, beg her to come back. They need her in order for this magazine to get the attention that it deserves.

This book further explores the mystery of Yiayia and Panos and is starting to really heat up. The fact that Nicholas is intrigued helps the family out in ways that they never dreamed could come about. We learn slightly more about Kallye and Max too!

I don’t know a lot about Greek culture but this book has had me intrigued. I do enjoy Greek food and I love that there are recipes scattered throughout. Reading this book, like the first one, I felt a part of the family. Let’s just say Nicholas better be glad Mia isn’t my sister in real life or we’d be having some words with each other!

I’ve always wanted to work on a magazine and I love an alpha male! This second book in the series delivers it all! It was great to learn more about Mia and her life away from her family plus the gorgeous Nicholas of course! What is behind his hot and cold attitude? I love when characters have depth like that! What can I say but yet another amazing book by this author!

This is the type of book to sweep you right off your feet and into the lives of both characters to be a fly on the wall in their story. It was romantic, funny at times, but most of all charming as it teased you with these two falling in love but doing so naturally and innocent. Pretty easy to read and straight to the point. Entertaining till the last page with characters you can’t help but fall in love with. By having read previous works of the author’s I highly recommend this one and many more.

The second book in the series was just as good as the first! Focusing on a new couple, Mia and Nicholas, it was great to see a new authors twist on the forbidden office romance trope, which she excelled at! My favorite thing about this story, like many others, was seeing Nicholas slowly opening up to Mia, as at the beginning of the story he has very firmly closed his heart off to prevent further heartache. I loved watching him learn to trust her with his heart, it very much reminds me of myself, someone else who takes awhile to fully open themselves up to one of the most vulnerable things on the planet, someone else’s love. I also love that they continue one of the side stories in the first novel, trying to figure out what happened to the grandfather of Mia from this book and Kally from the previous. I am hoping to get more answers on the mystery in the next book, which I am ecstatic to read next.

This is book 2 in the Meraki series but in my opinion, this can be read as a standalone. I really enjoyed how the characters interact in this author’s stories; they feel so real and I got very invested. The author is very good at portraying family dynamics. Mia and Nicholas were not the pairing I would have predicted especially with the beginning of their relationship. but you couldn’t help but become invested and hope they would make it. Another fantastic read from this author.
