Lovely little undercover romance from Clare London
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I know some of my friends weren’t as keen on this one but I really enjoyed it. I haven’t read the other two in the series so perhaps that’s why, as I had nothing to compare against.
But I thought this was a super sweet undercover boss type romance between two people who were perfect for each other. Alex started off as a bit of spoiled directionless brat but I came to absolutely love him.
Once Alex was involved with the Somerton family, he turned into a completely different person, one who’d found his place and where he could bring real value outside of a monetary one. His slow assimilation into Tate’s life just worked perfectly for me.
Tate was a bit of a dilemma for me though, at times I really wasn’t keen on him at all, he seemed determined to self-sabotage the whole relationship and I got why he had fears because of his parents but even so!
I’m not sure the mystery/suspense element really worked as well as it could have done though, it was pretty obvious to me who the villain of the piece was fairly early on but I thought the takedown worked pretty well.
The family made this book for me, Gram, the twins, Amy and even Freddie the dog were just an absolute riot to read about.
There was a smashing Epilogue which Tate almost ruined and I felt quite sorry for poor Alex but I did honestly believe these two would get their Happy Ever After.
