I bought this book and I was not asked by the author for a review. It is my honest review.
This book is a second book is Fitzgerald Series by E.B. Walters and I have to admit that I have enjoyed it much more than Slow Burn, which is the first part. In this part Ednah has shown a better writing and much complexed characters. I didn’t even mind that the book is written from the 3rd person POV.
A man searching for salvation.
A woman who can deliver it.
Will he recognize the priceless gift she gives him?
Vince is like a category five hurricane. He takes no prisoners. Now he is focusing all his energy on one woman.
Sexy and arrogant investigative reporter Vince Knight lives dangerously. In fact, he craves danger and trouble always finds him. When he goes in search of a missing artifact, he finds a priceless gem—a woman he can’t have. Or can he?
Art historian Jade Fitzgerald can tell a fake from a mile away. Fake artifacts, that is. But the smoldering attraction between her and Vince is definitely the real deal. So when he asks her to give him one night, Jade is intrigued. Little does she know Vince is playing for keeps, pulling her deeper into his dangerous world.
A missing artifact brings them together. Something more powerful will make them stay.
In here we meet Jade Fitzgerald, a young woman, who is a professor at University and loves antiques and anything that involves them. She is recovering from a bad relationship and now she is trying to be “I am in control” Jade and I admire her for that, because you can see that she really fights it and it’s not easy when every single person in her large family is overprotective toward her. She is trying to prove them and herself that she is strong and take care of herself without the whole clan lurking around the corner. I really enjoyed her as a character. She is intelligent, sassy and strong-willed. When she decides to be adventurous and even considering an affair, Vince Knight happens.
Vince is a mysterious, handsome and take charge in everything kind of man. He and Jade know each other briefly from high school, but were not exactly friends. He is mysterious and hides a dark past, which still causes him a lot of pain and prevents him to fully commit himself to his emotions towards Jade. At least at the beginning. The case of a stolen ancient statue brings them together (not that Jade was asked nicely to help him, though) and their time together starts.
The famous words: Mine Until Dawn haunts Vince almost all the time when Jade is pointing it to him every chance she has.
I really enjoyed this book and loved the story, and the fact that the romance the main concentration of it. And also that it wasn’t easy love.
But what I enjoyed the most? Vince, dancing and Ashley’s bachelorette party :] Amazing! I still giggle whenever I think about it!
A strong 4,5 stars for this book 🙂
And now off I go to next part 😀
