You will get lost in this book as you read about Javier falling for Sophie after seeing her for the first time, I really liked how he had to work for it as Sophie has been through so much and she deserves someone to fight for her and to show her she is worth it, I am not saying she isn't a strong women because she is and an absolute hoot to ie the outfit she wore for her dinner with Javier! This really is the perfect sweet feel good book that won't disappoint
