I have to admit that this story challenged what I thought and felt. I did not expect to love it but I did. Raisa Andrieta is a powerful woman used to getting her own way and is not at all likeable at the start of this book. Caroline Stenbeck, corporate wife and mother, is unhappy but trying to keep her marriage and family together. When they meet they hate each other with a passion but are so attracted to each other they can’t help themselves. Their story is one of intense and destructive love that takes place against the backdrop of a threatened civil war. Caroline’s repulsive husband Matt was horrible and I so wanted him to get his come-uppance. The author certainly knows how to make this reader feel a huge range of emotions.
S Anne Gardner has written an amazing love story that I could not put down. I devoured it! A well deserved 5 stars and a whole-hearted recommendation from this reviewer.
I was given this ARC by Affinity Rainbow Publications in return for an honest review.
