At odds with herself and life, Amelia is thankful for an assignment to travel with the family matriarch, Lillian Bellagio, to her home in the Florida Keys. Some sun and time away from Atlanta could be the best thing for her. A nice afternoon sitting at a Tiki bar is just what the doctor ordered, or is it?
Enter Jack “The Shark” O’Connell. The extremely handsome and somewhat mysterious man is after one thing, revenge and whatever he can get from the Bellagio family. They owe him.
Amelia meets Jack in a Tiki bar. She’s working on a To Do List of fun and interesting things she’d never have done at home or while she was with Will. Jack sees this as an opportunity to gather information about the Bellagio family. He challenges Amelia to complete everything on her list before she has to go back to Atlanta. He plies her with drink and begins to question her.
The character of Jack O’Connell is one you’ll love and hate at the same time. Amelia is hell on wheels in a work crisis situation, but flounders in her personal life. The story takes on a whole new meaning when the past is laid open and long buried secrets revealed.
Her readers depend on Leanne Banks to give them stories they can sink their teeth into but she’s gone above that level with this one. The intricately woven stories of the characters are real and their problems even more so. As an added bonus, she’s brought back Brooke, the young heiress from the first book. Together, she and Amelia will work to help one another.
Don’t miss this one! You will not want to put it down once you begin reading, so make sure you allow yourself a few hours to devote to it.
