Synopsis from Goodreads:

When Trudy goes to her estranged brother's wedding, the last thing she expects is one of those moments: a handsome stranger, their eyes meeting across a crowded room... a tempting, but dangerous stranger. Determined to find out more, she discovers that dark secrets bind him to her brother; she also learns that he's the kind of man who gets what he wants, and what he wants right now is Trudy.

Introducing her to the world of the super-wealthy, he showers her with designer clothes, shoes, and diamonds, whisking her off to dinner dates by private jet... what more could a girl want?

But as she finds out more about him, Trudy begins to wonder if she can ever love a man she can never fully trust. A man involved in murder and blackmail, who may just be using her as an alibi. Should she run or let herself fall for him? And will he give her a choice?

A passionate erotic romance, where scandals buried away in the past lead to murderous intrigue in the present, in the intensely steamy world of the super-wealthy and powerful.

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

You definitely have to love what weddings bring about in people. They can bring about the most paradoxical reactions to situations that would otherwise be mundane. The heightened emotions from the wedding at the beginning of this story carry throughout the novel and heighten the events. Adams continues this through her very personal writing style that links you to the main character. She also threw in a few plot twists that definitely made me giggle, and a couple of ‘WTF’ moments.

The characters in this novel are divided into 2 main groups: those that you get to know and those who randomly make appearances in the pages. The second group, although they serve a purpose in the story, the readers never really get to know them. The other group of characters is quite well developed and one gets to know them as individuals.

Even though this story was rather far-flung at times, for the most part I enjoyed my time reading it.
