This is the story of Eliza, the organizing whirlwind behind the party planner trio. She bumped (pardon the pun) into hunky billionaire Jake on two occasions—two weddings nonetheless, now if that isn’t an omen—and sparks flew. The problem? Jake was battling a divorce, and Eliza has been burned by her own unhappy marriage. But this time when they meet, all bets are off. The two of them give in to desire during a short holiday, and it was a treat to read how well they got along and how much chemistry and more they shared. The title sort of gives away the story, but that didn’t take anything away from the suspense and struggle. It’s no lie to say I was biting my nails at one point, and shouting at Eliza and then Jake and then again Eliza to stop being so blind and stubborn. But they got their happy ending, and it felt so wonderfully right.
It was nice to meet the previous characters and be whisked away to exotic settings, and the love story itself will remain in my mind and heart for quite a while. Jake sounded wonderful, just the right mix of mysterious, dashing, strong and sometimes infuriating. And Eliza holds her own against the other two party queens, who feel like friends to me by now.
