4 Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Well written new adult, contemporary love story that had me drawn by the beautiful cover. As I turned each page I loved the story of Enzo and Phoebe….but their story is definitely not easy..and many times a gut punch. How you can be in love so hard with every bit of might you have and turn and walk away that leads to guilt, sadness, tears and never feeling whole.

Phoebe is a photographer whom travels the world……she meets Enzo by chance encounter as they were strangers. Enzo ends up following Phoebe to all her beautiful destinations so she can capture the beauty in her pictures…but family pressure leads Enzo down the road to a different path. That path seals the fate for many years for both Enzo and Phoebe. Will their love survive the true hardship that comes their way?

This story is beautiful and moments are hard, but the story is so raw and real. The author really captures the true essence of a love that was broken and trying to find the way back. The use of famous National Parks and the descriptive beauty is very captivating. This is a great read.

I know the book said it was a angsty second chance romance but I really wasn’t prepared for just how true that was. The characters are designed to pull at your heart strings with their story, that honestly could have been love or tragedy at any moment it felt like. I thought the pacing of the whole book was spot on and fit what the author was trying to portray.
This is a new author to me and I think it was a brilliant introduction. I connected with the story and the complexity in it. This is a great book all round and I can wait to see what else This author produces.

Devlin: A Forbidden Office Romance

There is something about the “forbidden ” and Devlin and Eve do the forbidden right. The first time they explore it was pretty hot and changed everything.

Devlin comes off as arrogant which he is but he is more than his ego. He doesn’t show the other side unless you’re worthy.

Eve is driven at work and wants to be the best and when a huge opportunity arrives she is determined to take advantage of it.

This is a book to be savored and enjoyed. It isn’t one that you should rush through. Once you hat caught up into the story you will have a hard time stepping away.

Devlin: A Forbidden Office Romance was a great enemy to lovers read. Eve and Devlin are coworkers at a toy company. Eve is an independent, hard-working woman who will not let herself be wooed by Devlin’s charm. Devlin has always been attracted to Eve but understood not to mess business with pleasure. That was until he heard she broke up with her long-term boyfriend and saw his chance. Eve is not having that since Devlin is known as the bachelor with no hopes for anything but a physical relationship. What the two of them don’t realize is that the sexual chemistry just couldn’t be denied. Devlin starts to realize he can no longer deny his feelings and can’t believe that Eve made her way into his heart. There is a problem however, Devlin has kept a pretty big secret that could destroy everything, along with the fact that he is going to also be her boss. Can they keep their relationship a “dirty little secret” to save their jobs and their hearts?
I always enjoy a good enemy-to-lovers story. Both characters were very enjoyable and engaged in a no-bullshit type of way. The banter and progression of their story were romantic, realistic, and sexy. I thought Eve portrayed a character that was relatable and confident. She didn’t let Devlin in without him knowing what she wanted and didn’t. Devlin also had a way of “handling” her, he was portrayed as a confident, but not narcissistic man which came across the page as very sexy. The ending left me feeling meh. I love that it progressed to where it did, however, I feel we went from one feeling to something way beyond that. I liked that there was an epilogue but I almost wished I found out a little more about where they go.

Ooooooh I love this book! The angst, the spice…so good! Eve and Devlin are constantly bumping heads…they work together…and they’re constantly bickering. But they also can’t stop the sexual tension every time they’re in the same room. Can they keep their distance from one another or will they finally give into temptation?Book had my attention from the very first page and I finished in one sitting. If you love a good tense and angsty read, this is the one! Great characters, great plot, GREAT spice 🌶

What makes these books so entertaining for me is the way that the steamy chemistry starts off slow. It’s also steamy that you can feel it as you read each word and as it builds more, it makes you excited for the characters and their intensifying adventures or ways to keep them going. This is a sensational read. Hope you enjoy as much as I did.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First off, this story does have a trigger warning for suicide and PTSD from an attack.
On that note, it’s a sweet, angsty tale of two young people going through the challenges of a relationship. Because of their backgrounds, the family history, they have some issues. I found the writing style was confusing at times with the POV going back and forth between National Parks and countries. I was able to get back on track. The characters were okay. I would have loved to see Phoebe develop into a stronger woman. My favorite part of the story was when she met Kenzo’s family and was hearing about his mom’s family history. Overall, it’s an okay story that if you like relationship drama and second chances, you’ll enjoy this one.
