Freedom, salvation, redemption, liberty.

It’s not a concept Charlotte Rose has ever considered.

She’s busted her tail her entire life.

Worked at her doomed marriage

and slaved to build the company she loves.

Work is life.

Love?…yeah, that’s something she’s learned to live without.

Divorced and tired of the fight over her beloved business, she’s jaded and she knows it.

Charlotte needs a fresh start.

So she packs up and moves across the ocean,

to be with the one solid thing left in her life: Her best friend.

With all her energy focused on what the future holds,

she dives right back into old habits, throwing herself into work and neglecting life and love.

She has no idea life is choking her until him…

They meet by chance, and now he’s everywhere.

He’s so centered, so calm.

She needs someone to save her from herself.

Redeem her from her past mistakes.

Free her to discover who she really is.

It’s clear that the enigmatic Rhys has found his saorsa.

The question is: Can he help Charlotte find hers?

The blurb for this one had me intrigued and that cover was the final thing that nailed it for me. I had to read this. 

The romance was a slow burn but I personally felt this book needed that. Charlotte was a strong sassy woman who had been through a lot and was now taking a chance again and moving her life in a new direction (I loved how she sorted out the ex-husband – the snidey snake!). Then when she meets sexy scot Rhys and then kept bumping into him at various places across London, you could feel something special was starting. 

There was a big secret that I didn’t really comprehend why it had to be a secret but Rhys made that decision. However, I would have thought business savvy Charlotte would have looked into everything about a company that had head hunted her. Anyhow it’s fiction so I let that one pass. 

I did love the build up and connection between Rhys and Charlotte and there was added drama with Rhys’ ‘ex’. I love the OW being played at her own game and shown the door! 

This was feeling like a five star for me (besides the not knowing thing) BUT the ending was so rushed and everything being explained or happening all at once. After such a slow burn it spoilt the pace of the book. I’d have rather had a longer book (and yes, I’m greedy). And then that end? It was so abrupt I thought my kindle had died and wasn’t flicking to the next page or an epilogue. As I say this had so much going for it and although I enjoyed and loved it, with these minor issues it ended up being a four star for me. Still good but could have been amazing. Deffo recommend though. Grab it and devour.

“Can I get your number?” he asks, catching my elbow to halt me and then letting it go just
as fast.

I still for a moment then look back and shake my head. “I don’t think that’s a good idea.”

He faintly tilts his head and studies me for a moment. The crystal blue of his eyes bore
into me, breaking his stare I look over at Louise and Cami.

he implores in his rich whiskey voice. I move my gaze back to him, shaking my
head. “How long are you in town for?”

“I’m here to stay,” I reply softly.

A hint of a smile quirks on his lips. “Maybe we will run into each other again then.”

“Perhaps,” I offer. “If we are meant to be friends, I’m sure the stars will align and we
will meet again.” I was channeling my inner Louise with that line of rubbish. I
have to bite the inside of my lower lip to keep myself from smiling.

“You are very intriguing, Charlotte.”

My name on his lips gives me pause, but I force myself to finish our goodbye. It’s for the
best. This is the first day of my exciting new life, the last thing I want or
need is to get tangled up in a messy break up. “I’ll catch you later,” I say
with finality. Turning to walk away, I try to make a smooth departure but trip
on air. One second I’m falling and the next I’m caught around my waist and
lifted back up to my feet. I don’t even have a second to process what happened
before he speaks.

“Careful, kitten,” he murmurs close to my ear. “You’ll hurt yourself.”

I shiver, goose bumps ripple down my arms. I turn around to look at him and our faces are
too close for comfort. I take a step back so that I can breathe. “Thank you,
I’m not usually so clumsy.”

“It was my pleasure…What’s your last name?”

I wonder for a moment if I want to give him that information, but then it comes unbidden
from my lips. “Rose.”

“Charlotte Rose.” He takes my hand, bending down to kiss my knuckles. “Until we meet
again,” he says softly, and then he turns and walks away.
