19 and on holiday with her mum They had a brief chaste romance and then the h's mother dragged her off for pastures newWhat the h did not know at the time was that her mother used the h's business plan and a fake company to steal a lot of money from the married man she was having an affair with As this is HPlandia and there are no coincidences the H is the nephew of the married manThe H has had to provide for his uncle's family after the man died and the full extent of his financial loss was discovered The H is a billionaire so the money doesn't matter but his Manly Alpha Greek Male Pride is damaged by thought of the h as a thief especially since his Super Lurve Mojo indicator is telling him that the h is the only woman for himSo when the H sees the h with another older man five years later and it looks like the h is running a repeat of the scam that impoverished his uncle the H decides to take action He takes the h out to dinner and the h is happy to see him She fell in love with him five years earlier until her now deceased mother ruined it all by making her leave Unicorn grooming licenses are banished forever in the aftermath of chocolate lava cake desert the h feels that life may be giving her a second chance and she is ready to embrace it Her life the last five years has included starting up her jewelry business with her friends unknowingly using her old uni business plan that her mother stole and recovering from a vicious assault with a knife that almost ended in rape The court case was ugly the attack left physical and mental scars upon the h and the would be rapist wrote from prison and outed the h's identity so the h had to deal with the trauma of her attack being made public and all the attendant publicityOne would think at this point that the H would be aware of what was going on with the h for the last five years especially since he hired a Wanna Be LaToya Jackson Online School Detective But Couldn't Find The Click Button to Enroll to investigate her but NOThe H is so infuriated by the h's acuaintanceship with yet another older guy he doesn't bother to read the report To make things even worse the older companion of the h shows up at the H's with the proposition that the H take over his investment in the h's and friend's business To compound the entire drama the older man lies and says the h slept with himOur H being a standard JB Alpha Jerk H proceeds to run amok with the blackmail vengeance He buys into the h's business blackmails her into his life and bed by threatening financial ruin for her and her friends who have a young family and then proceeds with the HP standard Tart Shaming Monologue for the next several chapters In between bouts of Tart Shaming Monologues and Purple Passion Boudoir Bounces the H also manages several spa days and a lot of shopping trips to upscale fashion houses The h is torn between fury that the H won't listen to her and the incredible Bone Melting Effects of the HP Lurve Force Mojo along with enjoying the Ultimate Designer Wardrobe The h realizes she is still in love with the H so it doesn't matter how verbally mean he is to her but when he gets jealous AGAIN and orders her to his HP Greek Tycoon Standard HP Private Island the h decides to fight backUntil she picks up a newspaper and realizes that her almost rapist knife wielding attacker is getting out of prison and plans to come finish what he started The h goes into deep shock and willingly complies with the H's demandsThe H is getting frustrated because the h stops arguing with him and becomes unnervingly compliant The h is too mentally shaken to even pay attention to what the H is going on about tho the lovely Lurve Club Events help her get over the deep mental fearIt isn't until the h's BFF and business partner flies over to see the h and reassure herself that the h is okay that the H learns the true story of the h's attack He immediately goes into Full Force HP Alpha Grovel Mode and it is a joy to watchThe H realizes he was wrong all the way around and he loves the h and he only went so nuts because he has always loved the h and he did not want to admit it to himself This is standard JB HP H behavior and keeps it on par with a decent HP outing But then JB does something next that has never been done in HPlandia before and I am pretty sure has never happened since and this part raises the story out of HP mediocrity and brings a very warm glow to my admittedly bloodthirsty heartThe H reads the trial transcripts and all the attendant publicity about it He is totally furious with himself and positively loathes the h's attacker So he does what HP Alpha Greek Billionaires are meant to do but in HPlandia don't He is really rich and really connected and he has minions So he tells his minions to find the h's attacker and fix the problem of the nematode slime gulper walking around and breathing without mechanical assistance His minions get right on that as the H goes to throw himself at the feet of the h and beg for her to marry him cause he loves her and can't live without herOur h is still madly in love with the H so of course she agrees and he won't even have to buy her half the universe to make her love him she already does and is absolutely delighted to marry him We get a very nice True Love Forever declaration from both sidesAs a little bonus to the HEA we also get an epilogue where the h and H and the h's business partner friends are super happy and enjoying life another news article lets us know that the h's attacker got into a fight outside a Dover pub and is currently in Intensive Care with an uncertain outcomeThough the H refuses to admit to arranging anything the h is seekritly reassured in her heart that this H will burn down the world for her or at least anyone who tries to hurt her So we can happily leave this HPlandia Voyage with a rosy pink sunset toast with the Captain and the reassurance that HEA's are here to stay forever Kind of stomach churning revenge plot on a virgin with a bad mother by yet another bewildered besotted Greek tycoon that failed Mensa Angsty fun for some just not meBrownie points though view spoiler for setting up a brutal attack on the vicious wannabe rapist of the heroine Nothing says love like Beaten by Thugs and Intensive Care hide spoiler I actually really liked this book You got to see the POV of both the hero and heroine which I loved plus you saw both of their internal struggle with their feelings for each other JB is known for using the blackmailrevenge trope which I love Plus this book had a super alpha hero which is my faveYes the heroine was attacked and the hero decided not to read her full background report HOWEVER he would not have blackmailed her into his bed knowing about her assault Plus the hero got upset with himself for not picking up on the subtle clues the heroine was showing making it known she was uncomfortable with her body and around men I loved how this book had the hero not the heroine wanting the big talk and expressing his love I loved that though it was not confirmed the reader and the heroine knew that the hero was responsible for the attack on the man who assaulted the heroine I’m sorry but swoonWhy not 5 Stars? To my knowledge JB never reconciled the loose end of if the heroine was pregnant or not This was a real concern for the heroine and even during the epilogue when the hero and heroine had been married for a month I don’t recall the mentioning of a baby or even a pregnancy I considered this lazy on JB’s part Oh and the old man Ted is the reason why the phrase “Dirty Old Man” was coined This was a decent book that was entertaining and intriguing Didn't like this book at all The hero was an asshole and slept with other woman while they were apart The night he met the heroine he was with aanother woman talking about her voracious sexual drive and it just grossed me out He was mean cruel and honestly a herk throughout the entire book The h was a virgin but he still thought she had slept with another man the night before He punished her unmercifully and I just couldn't buy his grovel at the end It wasn't enough for me He left her for five years and he was not celibate either I can understand that but it just turned me off She had been attached and almost raped and I know he didn't know it but he treated her like hell I also got mad at the heroine for responding to him Enough already Just gross She was like no no yes yes It was sickening I wanted her to freeze him out Yes he asked her to marry him and then he had the wannabe rapist beat up but I still didn't ever like him Wow Angry alpha Greek tycoon seeks revenge against virginal innocent heroine for defrauding his uncle Eloise will become his mistress for a year so as to pay her debt but the thing is she had fallen in love with Marcus years ago How will she guard her heart and how will Marcus react when Eloise's dark secret past comes back to haunt her yet again? Very good read Full of drama angst and sexual tension Heroine is vulnerable and has an endearing innocence Marcus is so protective of Eloise so possessive and passionate I wanted him for myself He also grovels like no other hero Nice to see a hero being appalled at his own insensitivity tormented and racked with guilt Somewhere between 25 to 3 ⭐️And that too only because of a strong lovely Heroine and a differentinteresting story I disliked the hero so much and I’m not completely convinced of his faithfulness Too much reference about past women ughh so much that I couldn’t enjoy the book completely Typical JB dwama angst fest You either like JB and blackmailing alpha male tropes or you don't I do so I liked this oneThe heroine eloise fell for the H Marcus when she was 19 and spent some time with her mother on Greek Island where Marcus was also staying Circumstances separated them and they next meet when she is 24 and struggling to make her jewelry design businesss a success In the meantime she was brutally attacked and nearly raped As a result she is very private except with her business partners and good friends and she never has anything to do with men When she runs into Marcus she isn't aware that he thinks she was a part of her mothers scam to bilk Marcus's uncle out of a fortune She was actually totally unaware of what her mother had done Circumstances make Marcus think that she uses her sexuality to get wealthy backers for her business Actually he is than willing to believe this as he is jealous and needs a good excuse to blackmail her into having an affair She of course is a sitting duck to be blackmailed as he threatens to take her to court for the fortune she supposedly got from the uncle She is deathly afraid of courts and publicity as the legal system totally destroyed her after she was attacked Now this is the part I always have difficulty with in HN's I understand that she still has lust fever for the H and that she overcame her fear and gave him her virginity before she realized that he was a blackmailing jerk but I've never figured out how lust fever is powerful than revulsion at being called a lying thieving whore Oh well then I always figure this is fiction and maybe lust fever in Hlandia is powerful than any lust fever I ever experiencedSo I liked the heroine and the H was ok The HEA was believable and I liked that the H realized he loved the h before he found out the real story Yet another Greek tycoon blackmails beautiful younger woman into being his mistress acts like a jerk and they fall in love This time she was supposed to have defrauded his uncle she didn't Overdone as it is I seek out this trope However this was one of the forgettable ones Eloise had fallen in love with powerful Greek tycoon Marcus Kouvaris Now years later Marcus holds her responsible for defrauding his uncleand he's come to get his revengeActually Eloise had nothing to do with the fraud but with all the evidence against her she is powerless to stop Marcus carrying out his plan Marcus insists that to pay her debt she must live with him for a year There's plenty of passion but can Eloise persuade Marcus that she's innocent and claim his love Trademark JB novel sexy H decent h and a passionate love story A good choice when looking for the kick only old school HP romances provide
