Hannah has just come out of a long term relationship and has run off to Greece to escape. On New Years Eve she meets Leonidas who is still struggling following the death of his wife and son. Their passion is undeniable and they promise just one night, but there were consequences neither were expecting
Hannah was orphaned at a young age and sent to live with her aunt, uncle and cousin, she didn’t have the best relationship with them and at least some of her motivation is to escape from them. I liked this about her, she was determined to escape, even though things hadn’t been easy for her, she knew what she wanted and aimed towards it. She still has demons and I think that this makes her more relatable in some way, she isn’t supermodel perfect, just her own person
Leonidas is understandably still hurt and upset about what happened to his wife and son and they have become almost untouchable in his head, people who can’t be measured up to and whose memory must be preserved. Hannah gets under his defences and I quite liked that she forced him to confront some of his past and understand his grief but sow ideas of the future
I did enjoy this book, it caught my imagination and pulled me into the world of the super rich. It also highlighted the underlying message, money can’t buy you everything. The writing style helped and chunks of the book were very fast passed which I really enjoyed, however this mixed with focus on some of the more important issues
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a romance with a beautiful setting and strong characters who clash!
