After ten years, feelings change, right?
Can one week in paradise…
…heal ten years of heartache?
When the elite M dating agency sends wealthy Freddie Highgrove to the Seychelles for a weeklong “date,” the last person he’s expecting to be matched with is Jasmine Walker, his first love and ex-fiancée! Ten years ago, his family’s expectations for a high-society marriage sent housekeeper’s daughter Jasmine running. Can one week in paradise bring them back together?
Now that her business has really taken off, Jasmine Walker has put matters of the heart in the hands of the elite M dating agency.
A weeklong date on the Seychelles would have been the perfect start of something new, except that her match is not a total stranger, on the contrary… it’s her first love Freddie Highgrove. Even if being engaged for a short while, Jasmine ran away as she thought that the wealthy family wouldn’t accept a marriage with the housekeeper’s daughter.
And even now Freddie’s parents are hoping for a high – society marriage. So one week in paradise surely wouldn’t bring these two ex – lovers together again?
There are some authors you just know that will make sure you’ll have a blast reading their books. And Rachael Stewart is absolutely one of those authors for me!
Jasmine is the kind of woman who mad her own success, without relying on a man to help her out. As a young girl, she was a housekeeper’s daughter, but now she has her own business.
But as a reader it’s obvious that she is missing that one special thing, and it’s also obvious that she still has a soft spot for her first love, no matter how hard she tries to ignore it.
So when on the Seychelles she sees that Freddie was her date, it wasn’t only her heart that skipped a beat!
Even if Freddie may seem like being afraid of a commitment, his pain goes much deeper than thought. He has so much to fight against, not only his feelings for Jasmine, but his parents have wishes for his future he doesn’t share…
And the moment he dares to have a hope, it got crushed rather quickly, which broke my heart all over again!
Whenever Jasmine and Freddie are together, it’s clear that they both had their heart broken when their relationship ended, but they still hold a torch for each other. However, they are also afraid that the past will repeat itself and that their current situation wouldn’t allow them to be in a relationship.
This story is not only about second chances, but also about daring to trust each other again. Understanding each other is important in any kind of a relationship, because only if you understand the actions of the person next to you, you can comprehend how deep their love for you is.
Again a book that ticked all the boxes and fulfilled all my already high expectations and even surpassed them!
I loved reading this story about an initially impossible love, second chances and daring to stand your ground and fight for your loved ones.
