The Florence Affair: A Clean and Wholesome Romantic Comedy (Misbehaving Billionaires Book 4) by Kristy Tate
Love at first sight? Ha! In his head, Zane knew there was no such thing, but his heart sang a different tune the moment he spotted Florence Hill. Their attraction was immediate, heady, and world-changing for both of them. Their summer fling sizzled, until their meddlesome parents intervened, and their plans to elope fizzled with the arrival of fall. Even after a seven-year separation, Flora still has the power to bring Zane to his knees. But how can he trust the woman who shattered his world? And Flora will never again give her heart to the man who had left her tied in knots. Still, love at first sight has a way of doing a double-take. Blend in the Tuscan countryside, Italian legends and lore—as well as the promise of a happily ever after—and you have A Florence Affair. Praise for Irish Wishes, book one in The Wandering Billionaires Series Ireland is on my bucket list to visit someday and Kristy's descriptions just reinforced my desire to visit. I also liked the way Gillian and Pete finally got together for their HEA. The only thing that bothered me was the way everyone seemed to be manipulating Gillian... some for good reasons that added to the happy ending. I think the one that upset me was her grandmother. Her manipulations seemed evil and self-serving. But in all honesty without the grandmother's actions I might not have appreciated Gillian's change in fortune. All in all Kristy has written an interesting story filled with twists and turns and a couple odd hard-to-explain occurrences. It was a clean romance and I'm looking forward to reading The Florence Affair next. * At the beginning of this story Gillian receives a safe deposit box from her mother who died ten years ago and an offer for a paid trip to Ireland to write an article. I loved reading the descriptions and history as she traveled all over Ireland following Bram Stoker’s path and all the interesting characters she met along the way. She runs into an old love that broke her heart and a stepbrother she hasn’t seen since her mother’s funeral. There was plenty of romance, mystery, and adventure. I can’t wait to read Flora’s story next. * Oh my gosh! I can’t say enough good things about this book. Kristy writes about relatable characters, and in this case, it’s actually a very tame and tender romance about step-siblings falling in love. Don’t let that stop you from reading this story set in the magical and storied land of Ireland. It’s truly an enjoyable, believable read, unlike too many of stories with this label. She does correctly label this as a clean romance. Definitely recommended!!! * Kristy has a great way of pulling you into her stories right away. This is a clean romance, and I could actually see having another book built around some of the secondary characters, especially the Irish fey. * This was a great book and I will recommend it to anyone who loves romance. They keep you involved from page one until the end.
