** Book Review ** DEMETRIOU DEMANDS HIS CHILD by Kate Hewitt

Demetriou Demands His Child


A big part of this book is secrets and lies keeping them apart, so the amount of time we have seeing their romance is not as much as we might want.  I enjoyed the story, I just wanted a little more time of them actually enjoying each other.

Iolanthe Petrakis was an innocent, sheltered young lady the night she met and seduced Alekos Demetriou.  She had no clue that the man she was having a night of passion with had a history with her father.  When Alekos finds out that this beauty in his arms is his enemy’s daughter, he sends her away without an explanation.

When Iolanthe discovers she’s pregnant, she attempts to tell Alekos, but he thinks she was all a set up pawn and doesn’t treat her well when she visits him.  She’s scared and doesn’t manage to get out the words that she’s pregnant.

Ten years later when Iolanthe is now alone in the world other than their son, she needs help … Alekos’ help.  To get him to agree to what she needs, she’s going to have to tell him about their son. What she doesn’t expect, is his demand that she marry him right away!

** Book Review ** RISKING IT ALL by Christi Barth

Risking It All

3 1/2 STARS!

A fun, sexy read!  I had a really hard time getting into this book, but once it picked up, I really enjoyed it!  Fun characters!

Griffin Montgomery is a Coast Guard search and rescue pilot and he absolutely loves his job.  There’s nothing he likes better than helping people.  He puts it all out there and pulls off some very risky rescues.  Like the one that just got him grounded and on leave!  He doesn’t know what to do with himself if he can’t fly, so he’s milling around town and meets the lovely Chloe Widmore at the local coffee shop.

Chloe leads a quiet life.  As a professional letter writer, she can work anywhere, and loves to come out to the coffee shop on a regular basis to have the bustle of people around her while she works on her letters.  It’s her lucky day when she meets hot, flirty Griffin!

Griffin is a daredevil, bonded to his group of best friends who are like brothers to him that he writes the “Naked Men” blog with.  Chloe is a creature of habit and pattern.  They each have a memorable moment in their past that has helped carve them into who they are today … will these two people that are quite different actually be able to make a relationship work?
