All his life, he has held the world at arm’s length…but the sharp, beguiling Poppy demands to be his wife in every way that matters. Still, as desire grows between them, an enemy lurks in the shadows. Now if Harry wants to keep Poppy by his side, he must forge a true union of body and soul, once and for all…
REVIEW: I love this series. When Poppy meets Harry and asks him to keep her secret she had no clue what was in store for her. Harry wants Poppy and will stop at nothing to get her.
Poppy has a less than stellar wedding night and marriage which bothers her on side because she sees what her sisters have, but she wants a normal marriage and so assumes that her marriage is normal.
Harry has no clue what being a part of a family is suppose to be like, his past is a mystery that this reviewer is not going to reveal as it is a part of the storyline that needs to remain a surprise for the readers. The only thing he knows for sure is that something is missing between him and Poppy.
As the staff of Harry’s hotel where they live decides to take matters into their own hands because they love both Harry and Poppy and want them to be happy, things get a little interesting, and are quite humorous.
There does however come the time when Harry must choose what he wants his future to be and whether he has it in him to make Poppy happy. I loved how these two worked out their problems and we also get to see a side of both of them that we hadn’t before. We also discover the secrets that Harry has kept locked inside him for years.
Overall this is a good book, not my favorite in the series but a really good solid book. The one thing this book does do is set us up for the next book in the series.
I give this book a 4 out of 5.
