A Reputation to Uphold

Victoria Parker ✓ 9 READ

Nvince the world they're truly in love they both just might get what they want With enough heat between them to rival the Sahara the fine line between business and pleasure is going up in flam. I have mixed feeling about the book On one side I loved the writing style setup heroine plot and hero’s possessiveness and to some extent hero Also this was super hotWhat I didn’t like was heroine’s constant moaning about hero’s past women That happens when you knew the hero from young age She was jealous as hell It’s no secret that I hate over OW involvement Here thankfully no one particular woman was involved but heroine constantly thinking about his exes affected my enjoyment And second one hero married another woman Truth about that was revealed later and he also thought at that time that heroine was a loose character but that didn’t appease me No epilogue I liked the ending though his love speech was heartfelt and his gesture to make her believe in his love was very profund Overall an emotional angsty passionate love story with depth Almost a second chance love storyRecommended

    Nicely intense story of an Hh who have been attracted to each other since heroine was a teenager When heroine’s fashion designer mother died hero comforted her and one thing lead to another until the hero came to his senses Hero saw heroine with another guy that same night and was convinced she was a loose woman To add to this bad reputation heroine was in the tabloids for a few years since her father was an 80’s pop star and her brother became a famous race car driverHh haven’t seen each other for five years Heroine is speaking at an annual fund raiser for breast cancer that she and her brother have held every year in honor of their mother Her brother can’t attend so he sends hero in his place Hh end up having a clench and a private conversation that is picked up by the heroine’s microphoneHh decide to fake an engagement so hero can get a business deal with a “family man” seller and heroine can keep her wedding dress boutiue going It’s a common trope but the author skillfully knocks down the Hh’s misunderstandings one by one as she un spools their backstories There were too many mommydaddy issues for my taste but the romance was nicely done Both the Hh were likable Hero was cruel enough to be interesting but uickly showed his true feelings through his actions rather than his words There is a detour to a private island off the coast of Spain to round out their romance Heroine sacrifices her business in order to help hero with his deal

    Welcome to Dante's infero I just fell in love with the hero in this bookI liked the fact that he had feelings for the heroine straight from the beginning even though there was no big reveal of his feelings till the endAs usual we have a damaged hero who does not trust nor does he do loveEnter Evaformer wild child turned wedding dress designerEva has secrets that no one knows and it is heartbreakingThis is one of my fav tropes the best friends little sister books They have a pretend engavement to save each others reputation and to ensure that Dante obtains a big business dealThe press has painted Eva as a reckless and wild DivaDante believed everything that was written about herbut as he gets to know Eva he sees the reality not what the press has portrayed her to beThey dance around each other and slowly Dante begins to see the real Eva I can see him just falling under Eva's spellThe scene in the caves was beautifulI liked how Eva was able to show Dante his dead mother's pov with her lifestyle choicesI loved these two togethereach fighting the attractionthe sparks just flew and when they finally made lovejust WowI love romance in books and Dante is my HP boyfriendThis author portrayed his character beautifully and I just got choked up when he confessed his love to Eva at the endI guess I am a sucker for a man who loves like DanteThis was my first read by this authorthank you for an amazing bookwill def be reading from herHuge 45

    As often as always this showed up in my feed thanks to my GR friends and I was planning to read it sooner than later My first from this writer and I was impressed This was pretty well written for an HP and to me felt like a regular novel Also had the sweetest tropes of all brother's best friend Sigh The H was a total dream boat and is making to my book husband list with honors The h was a spitfire and a notch too mouthy for my initial liking but gradually when the plot unravels I began to like her She was a fighter and didn't need anyone playing her a knight I wish there were scenes of the H taking care of the h or a bit of the post pregnancy life Also the h's brother seemed to have disappeared from the plot I would've liked to know how he reacted to seeing his best bud hook up with his little sister The banter between the h and H was just short of pulling out daggers They felt ready to slice each other but it was extreme sexual tension since deep inside they both had been loving and dreaming of an HEA with the other for all their lives I will try other books by this writer

    45 starsVery intense read full to the brim with tension angst sizzling attraction and a multitude of emotions VP's writing is rich powerful and very compelling Her characters are well rounded Dante and Eva are a great couple Their attraction is scorching hot When they are together it's explosive Dante is always judging Eva always comparing her to his own wild mother After her mother's death and her father's desertion she has been tabloids fodder wild child front page scandal Now she works hard as an upcoming wedding dresses designer Eva is the kind of heroine I like Vulnerable yet strong and independent She is misjudged by the paparazzi and by Dante who believes what is published in the press Dante is one hell of a hero Alpha ruthless dark He has his own demons to slay He is the kind of hero who doesn't believe in love but when he falls in love he falls hard and forever His declaration of love is so intense so heart meltingly emotional

    Victoria Parker's second book builds on the promise of her debut She provides lush escapist reading perfect for a hot summer afternoonAll Eva St George wanted to do was to honour her dead mother with a fundraiser for breast cancer However when her brother becomes stuck and sends a stand in she is forced to encounter the one man who is capable of sending her up in flames Dante Vitale With her fledging reputation as a wedding dress designer put in jeopardy Dante comes up with a solution that is supposed to be strictly business but with the chemistry between them will Eva be tempted to mixed business with pleasure?Looking forward to Victoria Parker's next book which features Eva's brother Finn

    It is a solid new HP read What stood out about it was Dante's character He was something new and something old He has this touch of broken within his character that seemed new to HP I was pleasantly surprised I liked Eva's contrasting character having an edge of sophistication but the heart of innocence I'm happy to finally have a new HP author to watch out for Thanks VP
