Chantel Fernando is an author I have been wanting to read for quite a while, her books I will definitely be exploring further.
Take one charming lawyer who is extremely sexy, add a sassy, strong woman who runs and owns a pub and is going through a messy divorce then throw in a big dose of douchebag..her ex-husband and you have a recipe for one very entertaining story.
The character and scene descriptions are so clearly written it is very easy to visualise the story as you go on, it’s a fast-paced, easy to read one too. Yes..there is an emotional roller coaster but one worth riding! Many, many humorous scenes but also some heartbreaking ones and scenes that literally make you want to slap a particular character, mainly the ex-husband!
This story has a bit of everything really; sweet romance, ‘good and bad’ characters, humour, a touch of suspense and mystery, vengeance and second chances.
I totally recommend this story to everyone.
