There was no way that Renzo Cesare could stop himself from rescuing her, even if she didn’t yet realize that she needed rescuing. When he saw the seductive yet innocent woman winding her way through the throng of partygoers at the most notorious pick up spot in South Beach, Club Paradise, he immediately knew that she was out of her element. When she mistakenly thinks that he is her blind date he is furious that a man would be stupid enough to ask a woman like her to come here alone. So he does the only thing he can think of to save her from the sharks that are already circling her . . . he plays along.
All I could do with this one was cross my fingers, close my eyes and hang on for the ride that Esme and Renzo were taking me on. Usually when the story line is an independent heroine trying to not let the domineering hero tell her what to do I totally sympathize with her but no so with this story. I am amazed at how well Ms. Rock made me see this story from both viewpoints. While I understood Esme’s quest for independence I saw Renzo’s attitude as protective and courtly rather than domineering. The Single in South Beach series just keeps getting better and better and I can’t wait for the next installment.
