This is the part of the book where a love hate relationship with Karin is bound to develop.
The blinders are off now, and Leo is fully aware of who and what Karin is. He is also aware of how much he wants her.
Karin, for her part, wants Leo and all of the desire that he awakens in her just as much. She also has this annoyingly persistent 'I can't do this, because we are from two different worlds' complex that chooses to bare its ugly head at very inopportune moments.
If it weren't for the times that she throws the stupidity that masquerades as a thought process out the window and succumbs to his charms; there would be some serious throwing of electronic reading devices going on.
Speaking of charms. This is the part of the book where the sex goes from a creamy vanilla, to decidedly tuti-fruti. Scenes including anal play and exhibitionism are sure to please.
The world outside of their little bubble is more chaotic than ever. With the press hot on the trail of the 'mystery maid' and the hotel's employees planning a strike. There are for more reasons than just being from two different worlds that serve as reasons for these two lovebirds to sing a farewell song.
If viewed in the right light, those same reasons could be just the glue the two need to bind them for ever.
A lifetime New Englander, Suzanne married her college sweetheart and has been with him for over twenty years. Every summer she drags her husband and two daughters to Maine on a quest for the perfect lobster dinner.
Every fall she can be found down in Foxboro, Massachusetts cheering on her favorite football team. In between those trips, she’s a chauffeur, a maid, a chef, an event planner, a hairdresser, a wardrobe stylist, a tutor and a sometimes masseuse.
To keep her sanity, she often drinks copious amounts of coffee and stares at the blank screen of her laptop, dreaming of great adventures. Sometimes she even writes them down for others to enjoy. Suzanne is represented by Deidre Knight of The Knight Agency and writes mainstream romances under the pen name ” target=”_blank”>Ava Conway.
